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

Foster Homes

C.A.R.E. is currently a foster based organization, so we rely 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. Foster Parent 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. A car is required because many of our events are in suburban locations, and we may need help transporting animals. To become involved in C.A.R.E. Outreach, fill out the C.A.R.E. Volunteer Application.

Food Pantry Outreach

Each Wednesday C.A.R.E. volunteers staff the Pet Food Corner as part of the food distribution mission at Irving Park Community Food Pantry in Chicago. Pet food and supplies are distributed to pet owners in need so pets can remain with their families. We are seeking volunteers who can help with logistics of food transport and aggregation.
