What we do

Founded in 1997, Assisi Animal Sanctuary is an independent animal welfare charity based in Northern Ireland.  We provide excellent quality care and shelter for unwanted and stray animals including dogs, puppies, cats, kittens, rabbits, guinea pigs, and other small animals no matter what their age or state of health.

All animals that come into our care are neutered, vaccinated, wormed and deflead and all our dogs and cats are micro-chipped prior to re-homing. We make every effort to ensure our rescue animals find the best possible homes.

Animal Welfare is paramount to everything we do.

Our Sanctuary operates a ‘No Kill Policy’ which means that euthanasia is carried out only in exceptional circumstances, such as terminal illness causing untreatable suffering or severe behavioural problems which put at risk staff, volunteers or other residents.

We strive to reduce and ultimately stop the current destruction of companion animals in Northern Ireland. We do this through our Homeward Bound and Chance of a Lifetime Schemes run in partnership with Dogs Trust. Each year, through this scheme Assisi rescues over 2,000 unwanted and stray animals from pounds throughout the province, that would otherwise be euthanised.

Gifts in Wills

Legacy gifts are a vital form of income for Assisi and make a huge difference to the care and support that we continue to provide for our animals here at the Sanctuary.

A gift in your Will can help us to continue to rescue animals and ensure we can give them the best possible care and treatment until we can find them their best forever home.

You can make a lasting difference by writing your Will, for free, with Will to Give and Bequeathed and leave a gift to Assisi Animal Sanctuary.
