The Assisi Sanctuary provides shelter for around 200 animals. Operating a No Kill policy it aims to provide the highest standard of animal welfare not only on site but within the community. 1026 animals were rehomed from the sanctuary in 2008. All animals are neutered, vaccinated and strict rehoming rules ensure suitable placing as family pets. Free neutering in offered to pet owners on benefit schemes or on low incomes. Northern Ireland, sadly, has the highest number of stray animals destroyed in the UK. Assisi operates its 'Chance of a lifetime' scheme whereby dogs and puppies are rescued from council pounds across the province and Donegal and transferred for rehoming in Dogs Trust and Blue Cross centres in England and Scotland. To date this drive has saved over 5000 dogs from 'Death Row' and allowed them a second chance. Each transfer costs £350. With running costs of approx. £450,000 per annum, and no government or council help, Assisi is dependent on fundraising, legacies and public donations. Should you be concerned about your pet's future when you can no longer care for it, this sanctuary could be the answer. Contact Maureen Smith on 02890426676 (Fax. 02890426676)
