Adoption Events are typically held weekend afternoons in the Chicagoland area. Volunteers are assigned one dog or puppy to handle during the adoption event. They inform the public about our organization and help educate them on responsible pet ownership.
Volunteers assist in matching potential owners with dogs suitable to their lifestyle. They screen and counsel potential adopters, conduct home visits to ensure the safety of the animal, and perform post-adoption services. They are directly responsible for giving our animals a “New Leash On Life.”
