AHF needs people to work in a variety of shifts to walk our dogs that have been placed in our kennels in Schaumburg. Minimum of 20 minutes each shift. As the weather gets colder we lose our base of volunteers willing to walk in the snow and cold. This position is NOT a paid position. It is also NOT a temporary, one-time position or meant to fulfill community service requirements. We are seeking volunteers who will dedicate their time in an on-going, consistent and dependable way. Walkers MUST be 18 yrs or older. Won't you give some love and attention to AHF dogs at the kennel while they wait for their second chance at a loving, permanent home? Dog Team
Almost Home Foundation is a nonprofit, all volunteer, no-kill animal rescue funded solely by private donations. We have no paid employees. Almost Home Foundation is committed to reducing the number of homeless and unwanted companion animals through education programs, spay /neuter programs, and the responsible re-homing of dogs and cats through adoption programs. Almost Home Foundation does not have a physical building to house animals. We rely on volunteers who dedicate their time, homes and hearts for our animals until permanent, loving homes can be found. Adoptable animals in our care will be kept as long as it takes to find a suitable home. Almost Home Foundation does not discriminate against animals based on age, breed, color of fur or physical disability. Our ultimate goal is to eliminate the need to ever have a healthy adoptable animal euthanized.
