ANGELS OF ASSISI Assisi Animal Clinics of Virginia, Inc.is a non-profit, no-kill humane organization dedicated to the preservation and care of all living creatures. Commonly known as Angels of Assisi,the clinic has taken a leadership role in compassionate care for both animals and human beings by offering numerous lifesaving programs and services including those dedicated to pet retention, adoption, rehabilitation, education and a permanent safe haven when needed.
Starting with a low-cost veterinary clinic in June of 2001, we had a goal of decreasing the pet overpopulation and helping owners keep their pets. Services now include low cost spay/neuter, vaccinations, microchips, dental cleaning and sick animal care. To date over 100,000 (and counting!) spay and neuter surgeries have been performed.
Our adoption center and farm sanctuary save the lives of more than 2000 homeless animals each year and care for around 400 animals-of all species-daily. We assist law enforcement by taking animals from puppy mills, dog fighting rings and hoarding cases. Other pets are helped through our programs for victims of domestic violence, fires and hospice patients. When we started in 2001, over 10,000 homeless dogs and cats per year were killed in the Roanoke Valley. That number has since been reduced to under 1000 due to these lifesaving programs.
None of this would be possible without the support of volunteers, foster homes, donors the media and the youth who time and time again come to the aid of those in need and make a tremendous difference in our community. firstname.lastname@example.org
