Who: A group of Assurance staff members spent the day volunteering at One Tail at a Time Adoption Center – a not for profit, all-breed dog rescue committed to the rescue and adoption of dogs in the greater Chicagoland area. One Tail at a Time gives comprehensive support to adopters and does community outreach through humane education programs.  

What: After socializing with a few dogs at the rescue, volunteers quickly got to work: 

  • Weeding the outside play area
  • Sweeping, mopping and vacuuming the rescue
  • Cleaning out dog kennels
  • Filling 80 dog toys with peanut butter
  • Organizing marketing material and merchandise
  • Setting up for a small fundraiser One Tail at a Time was hosting that evening

The highlight of the day was when a new dog came to the rescue from Chicago Animal Control. ACT volunteers named him Ivan. 

When: Monday, June 18, 2018

Where: Chicago, IL

Why: The volunteer opportunity is one of 21 similar events scheduled for 2018 where Assurance employees donate their time to deserving nonprofit organizations.
