Review for Animal Care League, Oak Park, IL, USA
Over the seven years I've been a volunteer, I have come to believe that the animal or person who finds their way to the Animal Care League has found a place of hope and reward. All the animals who arrive are in need of basic comfort and shelter and some are in need of additional medical care, training, and proof that people are to be trusted. No matter what an animal needs, the Animal Care League staff, foster families, and volunteers strive to meet those needs. The staff is dedicated to helping each animal reach its full healthy and happy potential to speed it on its way to a permanent home. Foster families comfort and nurture the neediest animals. Volunteers help the staff by socializing animals and assisting in a multitude of daily chores that make the animals comfortable and the shelter clean and welcoming. Potential adopters are counseled by staff and given insightful information about an animal’s personality to help facilitate a good adoption match. The work going on at the Animal Care League is clearly a labor of love. It is a place that enriches not only the lives of the animals it shelters but also of the people who work, volunteer, and visit to adopt an animal companion.
