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. We have volunteers who help look after our animals in many ways. Some of them work directly with the animals and some of them fundraise in many ways, either as part of one of our Support Groups or as an individual fundraiser. Whatever way you decide to help Assisi, it is invaluable to us and we can never have enough volunteers.
Whatever amount of time you have available, even if it is just a couple of hours a week, then you can make a difference to the lives of our animals in many ways.
1. You can help at The Sanctuary:
• by feeding and cleaning the animals
• walking dogs
• playing 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 Support Group:
We have Support Groups in Bangor, Belfast, Downpatrick 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 then 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.
5. Join one of our Committees eg, Fundraising, Communications
Could you lend your time and skills on one of our organising groups. Would you like to help organise some of our fundraising events, could you help produce artwork for posters, do some gardening etc?

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