Volunteer with Safe Humane Chicago

YL girl
Safe Humane Chicago depends upon the involvement of community members. We need your help to spread our mission that a safe community is a humane community. We offer a wide range of volunteer positions regardless of experience, committment, etc. To get started, please fill out our volunteer application.

If you have questions about volunteering with Safe Humane Chicago, please see our Volunteer Opportunities or Volunteer FAQ.

If you are not able to volunteer with SHC, your contribution to the animal welfare community is still very important. We need donations to continue our life-saving work. You may also choose to contact your local shelter or animal welfare organization to help stop animal cruelty.

By giving just a few hours of your time, you are helping animals and people in need. Become a volunteer with Safe Humane Chicago today to help us bring the word of animal kindness to your community.
