Adopt a Pet

Can you give a companion pet a new start in life and a loving new home.

About Us

Welcome to Assisi Animal Sanctuary

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. 

Adopt a Pet

Rescue is our favourite breed. Why not consider adopting a rescue animal? At Assisi we have dogs, cats, rabbits and guinea pigs all waiting for new, loving homes.


Help our work to protect some of the country’s most vulnerable animals for as little as £3 per month. Sponsor an animal today and provide them with a lifetime of support.


Let us fill your spare time. Volunteer. Meet new people. Gain new or use existing skills. Get experience. Make a big difference to your community.

Make a Donation

Assisi does not receive any funding or grants from local councils or Government and therefore relies solely on donations from individuals and organisations within our community to keep our Sanctuary going.  Your donation will make a huge difference to the wellbeing of the animals in our care and help us to provide the much needed day to day requirements to meet their welfare needs.

Adopt a Pet

Are you looking for a new companion? We have lots of animals ready for their forever homes.

Lets help animals together

Please contact us for a chat about how you might be able to help in our work to protect and care for stray or unwanted companion animals.  Thank you.



Leave a gift in your will. A gift left in your Will is a great way to ensure that your love of animals and interest in their well-being is continued into the future.

Chance of a lifetime

Chance of a Lifetime

Chance of a Lifetime (COAL) was set up in 2003. They transfer dogs to Dogs Trust in England and Scotland for rehoming. We need your help to keep this vital programme running.


Your support helps us feed the animals in our care, give them excellent veterinary treatment and provide them with toys and treats. Become a member today.
