Volunteering at Chicago Animal Care and Control

Our Chicagoland team members had the opportunity to volunteer on November 2,  2019 with Chicago Animal Care and Control’s Safe Humane program. This fun-filled day was spent learning about the various programs offered, helping with enrichment, and socializing with the dogs and cats.

Our staff’s hearts were full from all of the love and affection shown from these amazing animals. It was an honor to give back and be able to present a $500 check on behalf of Lerner and Rowe to help further the mission of Safe Humane Chicago!

If you are in the Chicagoland area and looking to add a furry friend to your family, please stop by Chicago Animal Care and Control to adopt one of their many wonderful animals!
