Volunteer opportunity description

When animals come to us, whether as homeless pets or for spay/neuter, they need compassionate care.

Our Medical Center is the first stop for all animals coming to PAWS Chicago. Some require just a couple days before being cleared for adoption. But others need extensive medical care, surgery, isolation or fostering before being ready to move to one of our Adoption Centers or adoption events.

You do not need to have a medical background to help in these roles! All that is needed is a desire to help those animals most in need.

As a Volunteer at the PAWS Chicago Medical Center, your work may include:

- Providing sick and injured animals with much-needed attention and socialization

- Walking and socializing healthy animals who have cleared from medical procedures and are preparing to move to an Adoption Center.

- Assisting our Animal Care team with cleaning and general facility upkeep

Daytime shifts are our greatest need! We particularly need volunteers to help walk dogs and help with cleaning and maintenance between 8am - 12 noon.



Must fill out our volunteer application and attend New Volunteer Orientation.  Click here to get started.

Must be at least 18 years old.
