Assisi Animal Sanctuary is Northern Ireland's largest independent animal welfare charity providing shelter for up to 200 companion animals - cats, dogs and rabbits.
Volunteers are a vital part of the Assisi Team. Volunteering can give you the opportunity to try something new, gain experience, develop skills, improve your career prospects, build confidence and meet new people. There are many different volunteering opportunities. You can work with the animals, fundraise, gardening, driving to name but a few.
There is a wide range of volunteer opportunities, some examples include:
1. Volunteering at the Sanctuary:
• by cleaning and feeding the animals
• walking dogs
• socialising with the cats and kittens
• feeding, stroking and cuddling the rabbits.
These are all invaluable activities, which help improve the chances of our animals getting homes.
2. You could join a Local Fundraising Group:
We have Support Groups in Bangor, Belfast and Newtownards. Could you spare time to join one of these groups?
3. Become a Home Visitor
Before we rehome an animal a home visitor visits the prospective new owners in their home to give them help and advice on how to make their home and garden ready for their new pet. Could you spare some time to be a home visitor?
4. Organise a Fundraising Event
Could you organise a fundraising event for your friends and family. Some ideas are:
♦ Coffee Morning
♦ Run in The Marathon
♦ Treasure Hunt
♦ Cake Sale
♦ Table Quiz
♦ Night at the Cinema
♦ Golf Tournament
Or, if you’ve got a great idea for a fundraising event, let us know and we can help you make it happen.
Use Justgiving for your fundraising events.
If you like driving, we have several opportunities. You can help daily by collecting and delivering animals to the vets. We also need volunteer drivers to go to England and Scotland on a weekly basisi.

Please note that for insurance reasons, volunteers must be 18 or older.
