In Your Home

Making a Difference from Home

We know you really want to help but sometimes you are not able to come to one of our facilities or go out into the community. There are still opportunities for you to volunteer to help Anti-Cruelty. 


Pet Patrol 

If you’re a volunteer looking to help animals in the community, consider joining the Pet Patrol team, which we recruit for on a seasonal basis. This group of animal advocates helps us review and reach out to people posting about animals for sale on Craigslist. This is a great special projects team to join if you’re interested in making a big impact in the Chicago pet community.


Do-It-Yourself Donations

Enrich the lives of shelter pets by creating fun and functional crafts from home. From no-sew to crochet, we have a variety of techniques and projects that you can create and then donate to needy shelter animals.
