Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteering your time with rescue animals can be one of the most rewarding experiences. Without volunteers, animal rescue’s all over the country would cease to exist. It takes dedicated and committed people to keep up with not only the bigger picture, but every building block along the way. No matter what area you are interested in, we can use the help!

Adoption/Fundraising Event Volunteer

Do you like pets AND people? Then we need you! We also hold events and attend Pet expos where we need volunteers to help setting up tables, cages, cats, etc. at the event site, speaking with customers, and educating the public about Open Doors and its mission. Volunteers should be at least 18 yrs hold, however supervised children (ages 12+) may accompany parents and socialize cats where available, but are the responsibility of the parent, not Open Doors. Volunteers must be courteous and respectful, and act as representatives of Open Doors.

We are always looking for volunteers to socialize with cats and keep tidy at the few locations that we cats onsite (currently Petco located in Hodgkins, IL).
