Volunteer with Safe Humane Chicago


Register July 22, 2017 1:00 pm July 22, 2017 4:00 pm America/Chicago Volunteer with Safe Humane Chicago

WHAT: Volunteer with Safe Humane Chicago at Chicago Animal Care and Control – where you can come to meet, socialize and relax with the dogs (and cats, too, if you choose) at Chicago Animal Care and Control WHERE: Chicago Animal Care and Control; 2741 S. Western Ave. [free parking in the lot off 28th Street and street parking on 28th Street and Western Avenue] WHEN: Saturday, July 22, 2017, 1:00pm to 4:00pm ACTIVITIES: Brief introduction to Safe Humane Chicago; overview of CACC, the CACC facility and Safe Humane programs there (court case dogs, manners classes, playgroups, enrichment, community programs), introductions to dogs (and cats, if you so choose), safety and Safe Humane’s training philosophy (briefly). Socialize with the dogs inside (and outside if weather permits), even bathing dogs outside in doggie pools and or hanging out in the playlots with them. Debrief for the last 20-30 minutes, answering questions, making connections wherever possible, discussing next steps or what else can be done by members of the group. NOTE: Making toys for dogs and cats and helping with administrative tasks are also possible for interested groups. REQUIREMENTS: Volunteers must complete three waivers, one for the City (attached) and two for Safe Humane (attached), one of which just gives Safe Humane permission to use photographs from the volunteer day. I can send these to people who sign up via the eventbrite the week of the event to sign and planned to bring extras day of.  DRESS: Wear clothes you can get dirty — long pants, tshirts (no tanks, no shorts, no skirts), closed-toe shoes (no sandals).  You could consider bringing a change of clothes as an airborne flu virus in dogs is in particular pavilions and a change of clothes will ensure you don’t take it out of the shelter with you to other dogs.  We have other precautions we take as well, and all that will be discussed. COST: There is no cost associated with this volunteer opportunity but Safe Humane encourages everyone who participates or is interested to make a monetary donation or purchase items off their Amazon Wishlist which will be shipped directly to Safe Humane.
