  • Timothy Franks

    Owner / Manager

    Born in Michigan, Tim's love for animals was apparent to all who knew him. At a young age he worked on a family friend's farm; later transitioning to dairy work (where he milked and raised 250 Holstein cattle).

    After many cold Michigan winters, Tim decided it was time for a change. He made the move to sunny Lakeland, FL where he began a 24 year career with a local Veterinary Emergency Hospital.

    In 2010, Tim partnered with Dr. McDaniel to open Ark Animal Hospital.

    Tim's animal family includes a menagerie of dogs, cats and several species of birds.
