The beginning of helping and sharing [2003]

            Mr. Gra nt M. Waldman is American business man who rent the area behind … to do Guest house for help stray, lost, abandoned or surrendered animals, mostly dogs and cats, at that place to make them have a better life and sweet home. The number of stray dog in his responsibility increase rapidly in just a few months, he need to find new house that far away from town where they can stay together without any problem or … in named of “Love Animal House” with corporation from Khun Wit or Mr.Sorawich Noisapung (Manager of Love Animal House) and Khun Dip or Mr.Bundit Muenruekam (Animal Nourishing)

Actually, the ARK is the first animal rescue housing of Chiang Mai that support other stray dogs rescue group for a long time but people  didn’t know the ARK much because the founder of the ARK, Mr. Grant love peaceful and he’s happy with a little thing in his life which is live to taking care of his dogs.


            He always spend his time with favorites book and his dogs, more than 150 life of dogs that he bring them to this house and have freedom to live here with happy life.
            Love Animal House under managing of Khun Wit joint with Animal Rescue Association to be a part of support living of animal life more as much as we can. According to difference in thought of policy and unexpectedly the death of Khun Wit at USA which cause separate to be the ARK  since 2009 until now under Khun Dip responsibility. Mr. Grant hope that a little NOAH ARK could be support these animals as much as possible. According to the expansion of Chiang Mai, we have to move about 3 timeswhile increasing of number of animals’ life. After we faced the epidemic, all of our cats died and it affected to Mr. Grant very much, this losing pets made him very sad about it and hard to get over it. Then Mr. Grant stopped keeping cats anymore.
