About Assisi

Founded in 1997, Assisi Animal Sanctuary is Northern Ireland’s largest independent animal welfare charity, providing shelter for up to 200 companion animals including dogs, puppies, cats, kittens, rabbits and guinea pigs.  Last year we rescued over 2,300 animals.

All animals are neutered, vaccinated, wormed and de-flead and all our dogs are microchipped prior to rehoming. Assisi operates a strict rehoming criteria to ensure our rescue animals find the best possible home. Some of our cats and dogs are permanent residents, but all the others are waiting to find permanent new homes. The Sanctuary operates a ‘No Kill Policy’. 

With operating costs of £400,000 and no government aid, Assisi is dependent on fundraising, donations and legacies. If you would like to support Assisi, Click here for details on how you can help us.
