Who We Are

Angels of Assisi has grown to become the largest public animal welfare organization in the Roanoke Valley whose facilities include a private animal shelter, Community Pet Clinic, and 200-acre farm sanctuary, and offers cat adoptions at two area Petco stores and two area PetSmart stores. Angels of Assisi strives to be a resource to theĀ  community it belongs to, but also offers services to area and rural shelters to help end the euthanasia of healthy, adoptable pets in southwest Virginia and West Virginia.




Our Mission

Angels of Assisi seeks to change the traditional definition of an animal shelter by offering services and programs to benefit the community, the people that live there, and the pets they love. The organization operates the largest private animal shelter in the Roanoke Valley, as well as a low cost Community Pet Clinic and farm animal sanctuary. Through the Community Pet Clinic and Adoption Center, Angels of Assisi is able to provide resources to pet owners to keep their pets happy and healthy. The adoption center puts emphasis on these services to help people be able to keep their pets over turning them in to the shelter. Angels of Assisi strives to be a resource to the community and also offers services to area and rural shelters to help end the euthanasia of healthy, adoptable pets.

Our Differents

We provide reduced cost medical care to companion animals with special emphasis on spaying and neutering to prevent pet overpopulation. We provide shelter, care and sustenance to companion and domesticated farm animals in need, including an adoption center for homeless dogs and cats and a farm animal sanctuary.
