Real Dog Moms love to help their local community. Here are some wonderful ways to become involved with our local shelters, rescues and the like. Can't donate financially, but plenty of time? Can't foster a dog, but have a car and free time and can transport animals to foster homes or vet appointments? Here are ways to get involved with some of Chicago's rescues and shelter. We have posted links to their websites or their amazon wish-lists for direct donation shipments!
OR have a certified Therapy Dog and looking for places to get involved in the Chicagoland area, check out this resource page.
One of our dog moms has asked for a database to be created for our wonderful community to share info for dog care. She mentioned she used to have a network available and therefore always had trusted and free care. We have created a link to begin this lovely idea. Feel free to fill in your information if you are interested in joining this network. If you are uncomfortable posting your contact info, just add your Instagram or FB link for someone to reach out to you that way. It takes a village, right? Click the paw for the link. I will give you access to this private document upon request. ⚠ please note any abuse of this database will result in your immediate removal. That includes anything other than seeking help with shared pet care. ⚠
Chicago Canine Rescue is one of the easiest facilities to volunteer and help. You can either walk their dogs or help in the shelter with bathing, watering, and cleaning the dogs and facility. They are open from 10 am to 7 pm although it’s best to come the first time in the mid to later part of the day so that the staff can help you get oriented.
