Volunteer Opportunities


Volunteers are the heart and soul of C.A.R.E.™ and provide our full range of services, including fostering animals, conducting adoptions, providing humane education, participating in community outreach
and fundraising.

Foster Homes

While looking for a new location, C.A.R.E. is currently relying on foster homes to provide temporary homes for cats, dogs, kittens, and puppies awaiting adoption. Training and supplies are provided. More foster homes are desperately needed. Applications are available online at www.care-evanston.org/foster.

Adoption/Outreach Events

Volunteers are needed for outreach, showing pets at local stores or providing information at events. To volunteer with C.A.R.E., call 847–705–2653 and a volunteer coordinator will return your call.


To arrange a classroom speaker or other educational programs, please call 847–705–2653.

C.A.R.E. also provides pet food to local food pantries. If you know someone in need of food for their pet, please direct them to C.A.R.E. for more information.
