Volunteers are the backbone of Chicago Canine Rescue Foundation. We depend on volunteers like YOU to make our mission come to life!


In order to protect the safety of our volunteers and staff in the time of COVID, we are moving to a sign up based volunteer system. We ask volunteers to use our online scheduler to select a time they can commit to volunteering and come accordingly.


If you would like to volunteer walking dogs with CCR, please take the following steps:


1. Download and read the Volunteer Waiver and the CCR volunteer policies, code of conduct and acknowledgment.


2. Complete the Volunteer Registration to request access to the sign up sheet.


3. Follow the link to the sign up that will be emailed back to you after we receive your registration.


4. Use the online scheduler to reserve a time slot to volunteer.


5. Arrive at the shelter at the day and time you have scheduled, and our staff will get you set up to walk dogs!
