Description

Join the Chicago Spartans as we wolunteer with Safe Humane Chicago at the Chicago Animal Care and Control (CACC) where you can come to meet, socialize and relax with the dogs (and cats, too, if you choose).


ACTIVITIES
:

  • Brief introduction to Safe Humane Chicago; overview of CACC, the CACC facility and Safe Humane programs there (court case dogs, manners classes, playgroups, enrichment, community programs), introductions to dogs (and cats, if you so choose), safety and Safe Humane's training philosophy (briefly).

  • Socialize with the dogs inside (and outside if weather permits), even bathing dogs outside in doggie pools and or hanging out in the playlots with them.

  • Debrief for the last 20-30 minutes, answering questions, making connections wherever possible, discussing next steps or what else can be done by members of the group.

REQUIREMENTS: Volunteers must complete three waivers, one for the City and two for Safe Humane (which will be e-mailed before the event), one of which just gives Safe Humane permission to use photographs from the volunteer day.

DRESS: Wear clothes you can get dirty -- long pants, tshirts (no tanks, no shorts, no skirts), closed-toe shoes (no sandals). You could consider bringing a change of clothes as an airborne flu virus in dogs is in particular pavilions and a change of clothes will ensure you don't take it out of the shelter with you to other dogs. We have other precautions we take as well, and all that will be discussed.

DONATION: While there is no cost associated with this volunteer opportunity, Chicago Spartans do want to support the great work Safe Humane does and ask that everyone partcipating either makes a monetary donation, purchase items off their Amazon Wishlist which will be shipped directly to Safe Humane or bring donations with them the day of.
