Volunteer Information


Volunteers are the backbone of Chicago Canine Rescue Foundation. We depend on volunteers like YOU to make our mission come to life! We are always looking for more volunteers. And the best part…you can volunteer as it fits your schedule and devote as much or little time as you want. No need to commit a certain day or time every week…unless you want to.

We are currently looking for volunteers to help with the following:

  • Adoption Events: Dog Handler and Transporter
  • At Our Shelter: Dog Walkers, Dog Bathers, Facility Aides, Dog Transporters
  • Fostering: See our foster page for more information
  • Fundraising: Event Planning, Silent Auction Item Solicitors

We look forward to having you join our team. Please sign up for our Volunteer Distribution List to stay current on specific volunteering needs or email volunteer@chicagocaninerescue.com with comments or suggestions.


Looking to foster a pet instead?

The Chicago Canine Rescue Foundation (CCRF) is always in need of foster homes for the dogs that we rescue.
