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 re-home companion animals or engage in impactful community programs.

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.

Virtual Safe Humane Chicago program introductions for new volunteers will be announced soon.
