History of Project Noah, Inc.
In the mid nineties PNI was founded for the purpose of raising conservation awareness and education. We were USDA licensed and inspected, and were a 501(3)c organization. It’s main interest at that time was the endangered animals and protecting their habitat. While these needs still exist, and maybe even more so today, many State Regulations have become very unfriendly toward ownership of exotics and sanctuaries and Kentucky was no exception. We at PNI realized the trend and though we were grandfathered in with the animals we had in our possession at that time, decided to relocate our “animal family” to other sanctuaries in States that were more open minded and compatible to their well being.
During the years we were operating here in Kentucky, we were active with the local schools and civic clubs, and events such as the International Festival, Glasgow Highland Games, and Dare Program. We were visited by thousands of students from nearby schools each year and enjoyed the opportunity to share and raise awareness for the need of conservation with what would be tomorrow’s leaders. Our ambassador animals, while very diversified, were nearly all rescues. See our archive photo section below to see some of the wonderful animals with which we were blessed to share our home, and enrich the lives of many.
