Charity Hopping Around the World

Massive thanks to Kathy @ I Am A Reader, Not A Writer & Megan @ Reading Away the Days for hosting this hop :)

When thinking of a Charity to highlight there was only one that came to mind. Assisi!

Taken from  the Assisi Website: http://www.assisi-ni.org/about/

Founded in 1995, Assisi Animal Sanctuary is Northern Ireland’s largest independent animal welfare charity, providing shelter for up to 200 companion animals including dogs, puppies, cats, kittens, rabbits and guinea pigs. Last year we rescued over 2,300 animals.

The Sanctuary operates a ‘No Kill Policy’. All animals are neutered, vaccinated, wormed and deflead and all our dogs are microchipped prior to rehoming. Assisi operates a strict rehoming criteria to ensure our rescue animals find the best possible home. Some of our cats and dogs are permanent residents, but all the others are waiting to find permanent new homes.

With operating costs of £400,000 and no government aid, Assisi is dependant on fundraising, donations and legacies. If you would like to support us, Click here for details on how you can help us.

Assisi is a charity very close to my heart for one special reason - Tiddles! 10 years ago for a birthday present my parents bought my Cat from Assisi. She was the first Cat I saw and wanted her straight away my dad had no other option but to say YES!

The pictures of the cat are of course her as I couldn't resist not showing yous. :) I obviously think she's the cutest Cat in the world but I'm biased.... :)
