Volunteer to Help Dogs in Chicago
If one of your goals for 2014 is to volunteer, you’re not alone. In fact, 26.5 percent of adults volunteer, and it’s one of the most popular New Year’s resolutions nationwide. “Great! So, now what?” you might be asking yourself. Oftentimes, the hardest part about donating your time and talent is finding an opportunity that will be the perfect fit. Sound familiar? If so, we’d love to help! Chicago is bursting at the seams with ways you can give back to the community if you know where to look. Since we at The Doggy Dojo have a soft spot for animals in need, we’ve listed a few organizations that would be thrilled to have your support in 2014 and beyond.

This is just a handful of local shelters and organizations that rely on the support of Chicago animal lovers like you. Are you particularly crazy about Chihuahuas? Or maybe you’re in love with Labradors? You might find it most rewarding to research the needs of breed-specific rescue groups in Chicago and Northern Illinois. The possibilities are truly endless when it comes to the ways you can come to the aid of animals in the area.
