Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service

Paws and Reflect on the Legacy of Martin Luther King Jr.: The Anti-Cruelty Society to Host National Day of Service January 21

Volunteer opportunity for all ages to engage in our community of caring

CHICAGO—The Anti-Cruelty Society is hosting a day of service event on January 21 to honor the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. The event is for community members of all ages to drop in and provide volunteer support to positively impact the lives of homeless pets.

“In the spirit of Dr. King, we invite all those with the day off from school and work to come in and give back to our community,” says Lydia Krupinski, Director of Community Programs. “The pets in our care benefit so much from a day of service like this, and we look forward to bringing our community together to give back.”

Volunteer activities include: reading to adoptable cats, socializing with adoptable dogs, crafting toys for shelter pets, and creating adoption packets and posters. This event is a great way for community members to give back to homeless pets and learn about The Anti-Cruelty Society. Tours of the Society will also be available.

The event will be held on Monday, Jan. 21 from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at 157 W. Grand Ave. in Chicago. The event is free, but a donation of two yards of fleece or $5 donation is requested. Free parking is available onsite
