Placing Paws has many volunteer opportunities available. How can you help?


We are always in need of foster homes. Read more about fostering.



Most of our animals come a long way to enjoy safety. Their long journeys are broken up into “legs”. We freqeuntly need help getting them from the last stop of the transport. Most transports are within 1 to 1.5 hours of Mundelein.


Adoption Events

Dog handlers are always needed at events. Helping foster parents get animals to and from events is also needed.



Placing Paws is always in need of financial contributions to help cover medical expenses. Other items that are always needed are: Gas cards, blankets, crates, toys, dog and cat food, collars, leashes, dog and cat shampoo, Frontline & Heartguard

Monetary donations can be mailed to us at: PO Box 121 Libertyville, IL 60048-0121 or by using Paypal.

PPI does not turn away animals that need extra medical attention. Therefore, we rely on financial contributions to help cover medical expenses.

If you are able to help with any of these volunteer opportunities please contact us: PlacingPaws@yahoo.com or apply below.
