We're Taking it to the Streets!

Block by block, Angels in Action to help pet owner in overlooked neighborhoods.


Angels of Assisi is launching a new community outreach program to provide free services to low income communities, called Angels in Action. The program is modeled after the Humane Society of the United States "Pets for Life" initiative, with the goal of providing veterinary services directly to low income communities. This program has been very successful in large cities, including Chicago, Philadelphia, Atlanta, and Los Angeles.

Angels in Action Logo.Angels in Action will provide ongoing neighborhood outreach and offer free or very low cost services including humane education, spay/neuter surgeries, and wellness care. The program is based on the fundamental understanding that where there is human suffering, there is animal suffering. To respond effectively to this, outreach efforts are focused on an audience that has the least access to information about animal wellness. Angels in Action embraces the human component by approaching people in a respectful way and recognizing that people love their pets, no matter what their socio-economic circumstances or cultural differences may be.

Staff & volunteers will get the word out by canvassing targeted neighborhoods, and begin with a partnership with the Roanoke City Fire Department on June 29th. Angels of Assisi will be providing free rabies vaccinations and spay/neuter vouchers. Pet food and other products will be donated by Purina.

Member One Federal Credit Union has provided tremendous marketing & branding support, and Animal Farm Foundation has awarded a grant to help start the program. We would be unable to provide this vital service without the generosity of the community & the support of our amazing volunteers.

Updates on the program will be posted on our website, and those interested in helping may donate to Angels of Assisi at www.angelsofassisi.org/getinvolved/donate.html or by mailing or visiting us at 415 Campbell Ave Roanoke, VA 24016. Please make a note that your donation should be earmarked for Angels in Action.

The Paw Project Movie

Reserve your tickets today to this powerful documentary illustrating why declawing is an outdated and unnecessary surgery.

In the United States today, approximately 25% of domesticated cats are declawed. While many are told that it is a procedure that benefits the cat's livelihood; pet owners aren't always aware of the true physical damage that it brings to the animal. Most people do not know the current struggle aimed to protect our pets from this harm.
