Thank You, Volunteers!

May 29, 2020

By taking on the responsibilities of almost 70 full-time employees every single year, our volunteers are an integral part of our mission. From Kitty City and Dog Town volunteers to volunteers who provide support at our Medical Center and Community Outreach program, they make up the very heart of PAWS Chicago. When we had to adjust our operations to fit COVID-19 safety precautions, our volunteers were quick to run to the rescue and provide assistance!

Since the Stay at Home order went into effect, volunteers have filled twelve new teams and taken on countless responsibilities. They’ve assisted with our contactless Mobile Pet Food Pantry, placed stewardship calls, continued to facilitate adoption and foster counseling virtually, and so, so much more. It’s safe to say that without our volunteers, the world would be a whole lot more uncertain for animals in need. Thank you for everything you do, volunteers!
