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: Assurance employees began the day listening to a presentation on One Tail at a Time’s 10th Anniversary and the lasting impact Assurance’s charitable arm ACT has had on the not for profit. After the presentation, volunteers quickly got to work:
- Weeding the outside play area
- Organizing donations
- Socializing with six dogs housed onsite
- Cleaning and sorting the storage room, throwing away six large boxes of expired food and treats to free up room
