Volunteer

Are you looking to do some good in your community? Do you love working with animals? Are you concerned about animal welfare and homeless pets? Volunteer with Assisi Animal Foundation!

We can always use cheerful, energetic volunteers! If you can help out just a couple hours a week or have nearly unlimited time, we can find a place for you.

Because we need to make sure that we are staffed at all times, we are unable to accommodate drop-in volunteers. Please use the contact form to make arrangements to volunteer with us, and download and fill out the Volunteer Application and send it back to us (fax to 815-455-9417 or email to adoption@assisi.org).

Foster Parents Wanted!

Are you thinking about bringing a pet into your home, but just not sure? Do you love pets and want to make sure that homeless animals have a home where they can be tended to?

We always have a need for homes to foster pets that may need special attention, have a medical need or just need to learn to become a better pet, for their forever home.
