The People’s Animal Welfare Society of Tinley Park is a no-kill animal shelter dedicated to the protection of domestic animals, and to the attempt to prevent animal cruelty in the surrounding communities. They will provide shelter to abandoned, lost and relinquished pets. They will provide humane education in animal care to the communities. They will strive to prevent the overpopulation of our pets by offering spay/neuter programs, rather than, through the use of euthanasia. To promote these goals, they are dedicated to finding safe and permanent new homes for our domestic animals; as well as helping the public choose the right companions for their families.
At P.A.W.S. of Tinley, volunteer duties include but not limited to caring for the dogs and cats, ranging from cleaning cages, feeding, medicating, socializing and grooming.
P.A.W.S. offers both “JR Volunteer Programs” for children ages 14 to 17 and adult volunteer programs.
The P.A.W.S. of Tinley Park could not exist without the dedicated efforts of their volunteer staff. They depend on them to help with the daily care of their animals. Dog or Cat person they would love to have you on their team!
All new volunteers must first attend a Volunteer Orientation session. All orientations will last approximately 2 hours and will include a tour of the shelter. Registration is required for your attendance and space is limited. Contact P.A.W.S. now for more information.
