Will you help give them a warm, comfortable, safe place to stay!
One of the things that really affected us over the past year has been the closure of our shops. Being one of our largest sources of income, we have had to put a number of plans and work at the sanctuary on hold due to financial restrictions.
A number of our kennels are in very poor repair and require quite a bit of work to bring them up to the standard we expect for our dogs.
The two oldest kennel blocks have finally succumbed to the bad weather we have had and must now have major roof repairs. Some are leaking badly to the point that they can no longer be utilised and we urgently need to bring them back into use as we expect they will be necessary when we hit the anticipated surge in requests to take dogs in that have been acquired throughout the pandemic.
We also need to replace and weather-proof a significant number of heat lamps that are no longer working.
We believe we are in the lull before the storm and sadly we think that this will change over the coming months as pandemic restrictions ease, normality returns, with dogs being left on their own during the working day and unable to cope.
The cost to carry out the work to our kennels is £12,000 and we have received a very generous grant donation of £6,000 – 50% of the overall costs of the repairs.
We are asking if you could help us raise the remainder of the money to carry out these very necessary repairs.
If you are able to help in any way towards the costs of the repairs, we would be eternally grateful. Anything you can give today to enable us to bring our kennels up to standard will be very much appreciated.
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 700 companion animals in our Sanctuary each year.
Adopt a Pet
Rescue is our favourite breed. Why not consider adopting an unwanted or rescue animal? At Assisi we have dogs, cats, rabbits and guinea pigs all waiting for new, loving forever homes.
For as little as 20p a day, you could provide multiple unwanted and homeless animals each year with warm shelter, food, medical care and the love and happiness they deserve until they find their forever home.
Can you spare 3-4 hours each week - by volunteering with us you will meet new people, gain new or use existing skills, gain experience and ultimately make a big difference to animal welfare.
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.
Our Outreach Scheme came about because there was a clear recognition that there are individuals and families within our community who struggle to make ends meet and provide food for themselves, their families & pets.
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.
Make a Donation
Assisi relies 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.
