Upcoming Volunteer Events
Chicago Pet Rescue is a 501c(3) non-profit, foster home and volunteer-based rescue, dedicated to rescuing stray and abandoned animals. We do not have a central "shelter" as most of our animals are placed in foster homes until forever homes can be found. Our goal is to rescue as many animals as we can safely manage through foster homes. We rescue dogs, puppies, cats, kittens, birds and other small animals.
Kaleidoscope is a non-profit child welfare agency that has been serving children and families impacted by abuse and neglect since 1973. We provide assessment, case management, clinical intervention, specialized foster care, independent living preparation and other services within home and community settings. We believe that relationships, and families in particular, are the best way for children to heal from trauma and grow into happy, healthy, successful adults. Through our expert programs and services, we equip the adults in a young person’s life to provide the best care possible. Together, we provide kids with the adult support, patience and guidance they need to succeed. Our Goal is to keep children safe within a home environment through innovative service delivery. Our Mission is to empower children, youth and families impacted by abuse and neglect to build resourcefulness, resiliency and supportive relationships. Our Vision is that all children and youth have the opportunity to enjoy safe and healthy lives nurtured by responsive adults.
Lulu’s Locker Rescue is a nonprofit, volunteer-run companion animal rescue working to bring to light the plight of black cats and dogs and senior/hospice animals in shelters as well as the misconceptions surrounding FIV cats. We aim to lower the euthanasia rate of these animals by educating the public and providing foster care as we seek out permanent homes. We are committed to the protection of the misjudged and wrongly stereotyped through compassion and respect, which we believe both animals and human beings deserve. We are based out of Frankfort, IL, and rescue cats and dogs in Chicago and the surrounding suburbs. Lulu’s Locker Rescue is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.

In 2000, CRC leadership saw the need to formalize the charitable giving of the organization. That same year, the Charitable Causes Committee was formed to encourage CRC membership to engage with local charities and leverage their own charitable hearts.
Volunteer opportunities will be announced during the year. No previous experience is necessary. A willing spirit and a giving heart automatically qualify you to take part in the activity.
Please keep an eye out for opportunities to give: the Silent Auction in February of each year is by far the biggest fundraiser. Smaller opportunities are made part of the other meetings.
If you would like to donate to CRC, please contact:
Never get tired of doing little things for others. Sometimes, those little things occupy the biggest part of their hearts.
