Our Adoption Center is open from 12 pm to 6 pm, Monday through Saturday and we take walk-ins! You can view all of  our available animals before your visit listed below, so if you see the pet for you, fill out an online adoption application and come on in. If you have any questions, please email our Adoption Coordinators at adoptions@angelsofassisi.org. Most of the animals at the Angels of Assisi Adoption Center are also available for short and long-term foster care to help animals needing medical care or a break from the adoption center.

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. All animals will be spayed or neutered, receive necessary vaccinations, and checked for sound health and temperament before adoption. Adopted pets are welcome to come back for veterinary care at the Community Pet Clinic.

What are the steps to finding the perfect pet for your home?

Find the Pet for You

Our Adoption Specialists are eager to help you find the pet who would fit best in your family, so email us at adoptions@angelsofassisi.org with any questions. When you’re ready, you can make an appointment, however we encourage you to come on by if you know which animal you are interested in as we are first come first serve.

Check for Fostered Animals

Some of our available pets are currently in foster homes. If an animal is currently in a foster home, it is noted in the animal’s biography online. To meet a pet in foster care, please fill out a non-binding adoption application, and the foster parent will contact you to schedule a meet and greet once the application has been approved (generally within 24-48 hours).

Apply for Your Pet

You can complete an application online, but if you forget, we do have paper applications at the adoption center. Adopters must be 18 years of age or older. If you rent your home, we will need to contact your landlord or see a copy of your lease to verify the pet policy. Most applications can be approved within 24-48 hours.
