Angels of Assisi is the only adoption center in Roanoke that offers an “adoption guarantee”, meaning that if you cannot keep your adopted pet, for any reason, that pet is guaranteed a place in our adoption center until a new home can be found.

Since opening in 2001, over 10,000 animals have been adopted from our adoption center. Below are statistics on animal intake and disposition since 2011. Full reports are available on the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services Web site

Live release rates were calculated by taking the total live outcomes (Return to Owner, Adoption, Transfer, Other) and divided by the total intake or intake of that species.
