Business overview

CAN YOU HELP -- Could you help us continue the important work of saving animals in Northern Ireland? If you could, here are some of the ways you can help :

Founded in 1995, 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.

The Sanctuary operates a ‘No Kill Policy’. All animals are neutered, vaccinated, wormed and deflead 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.

With operating costs of £400,000 and no government aid, Assisi is dependant on fundraising, donations and legacies. If you would like to support us

Ash Greyhounds are one of the oldest breed of dogs around and are the only dog to be mentioned in the bible. Known as the “45mph couch potato” they are the fastest breed of dog in existence but are actually very lazy dogs who are very happy snoozing the day away on a comfy bed or sofa.
Freddo is a handsome spaniel x collie. He is around 1 1/2 years old and has been vaccinated and neutered. Freddo came to us from the pound so we know little of his history but he has shown himself to be a happy, calm boy. Freddo loves nothing more than snuggling up to someone and getting lots of TLC

Simon is a lovely boy who is around 4 years old. He has been vaccinated and neutered. Simon is a friendly boy who loves attention. He is finding life in the cattery very stressful and needs a home of his own ASAP. Once Simon gets to know you he is very affectionate
Ripley is a handsome young cat. He is around 1 year old and has been neutered and vaccinated. Ripley is incredibly affectionate and loves to be cuddled and have a fuss made of him. He is very playful like all young cats and would love to go to a home where he would have access to a safe garden
