Volunteer Perks / Recognition
It is important for volunteers to be recognized for all that they do. Whether it be fostering, fundraising, adoption counseling, attending adoption events, socializing animals or just spreading the word about Chicago Pet Rescue, the hard work and dedication that volunteers put in is invaluable. Which is why we take the time to recognize all of our volunteers one way or another.

Other Perks of Volunteering
Meet New People! Chicago Pet Rescue is made up of a dynamic community of animal lovers, and we do our best to create a fun and inviting environment for our fabulous volunteers at our Chicago headquarters, holding most events within 30 minutes of Edison Park. Come enjoy the company of our wonderful animals while hanging out with other terrific, like-minded people who are passionate about standing up for animals.
Free Stress Relief Sessions! As a thank you for your dedication and hard work we offer volunteers the chance to help a homeless animal feel like a companion, even if its just for an hour. Shed your stress and energize with one of our animals! We offer training to our volunteers on how to socialize a cat, kitten, dog or puppy. Once you are trained we invite you to schedule a time to stop by Skokie PetSmart or Norridge Petco to relax with any of our on-site or visiting animals. Visitations need to be scheduled, so contact email@example.com for details.
Got Talent? CPR uses today's technology to raise awareness and funds for animals. Whether it’s a YouTube video, an album, a live performance or a commercial, our volunteers have the opportunity to showcase their talents in many ways. We love the idea of giving passionate and creative people an opportunity to do what they love for the benefit of animals. Doesn’t get much better than that!
Hit The Town! Earn tickets to go see a movie, enjoy a nice cup of coffee or have a nice dinner on us, as part of our Volunteer Perks program. We appreciate your dedication and believe that rewarding your hard work with fun events makes for happier volunteers!
Gift for your Time!! Each time you Volunteer for at least 2 hours during one event you can have a staff person sign your volunteer card and be closer to picking a gift (after a total of 8 hours). We want you to have fun during and after our events.
Save Money! Protect those you love by volunteering. Volunteers who accumulate a minimum of 5 hours per year are eligible for 10% off their 24PetWatch pet insurance. Having this coverage can help ensure pets receive the right medical attention when they need it.
