Schaumburg, Ill. (June 25, 2015)Assurance, a Top 50 U.S. insurance brokerage, continued its commitment to giving on June 23, 2015, when a number of employees spent their work day volunteering with Animal House Shelter. This is the third year Assurance volunteers assisted the organization.

Animal House Shelter is a nonprofit, 501(c)3, no kill shelter for all breeds of dogs and cats. The organization saves those scheduled for euthanasia at other shelters due to their lack of space. Once rehabilitated and ready, the pets are carefully matched with prospective adopters and placed in loving homes. Over 30,000 pets have been adopted from Animal House Shelter.

The volunteer opportunity is one of 17 similar events scheduled for 2015 where Assurance employees donate their time to deserving nonprofit organizations. All volunteer days are organized by the company’s employee-driven charitable foundation, Assurance Caring Together (ACT).

On June 23, Assurance volunteers assisted Animal House Shelter with a wide variety of tasks. Over 60 dogs were walked around the shelter by Assurance employees. They also fed and groomed nearly 30 cats and helped install over 20 shelves in Animal House Shelter’s newly renovated cat room.

“I think that the event went really well and people ended up having a ton of fun, while also making a measurable difference for a local animal shelter ,” said Peter Murphy, carrier liaison at Assurance. “This organization has been saving dogs and finding them loving homes for over ten years. The work that they’re doing is invaluable!”

Under the motto “We Can Be Heroes”, Assurance employees donated over 17,000 labor hours in a ten year span through volunteer opportunities organized by ACT. If you or your business would like to volunteer with Animal House Shelter, please visit https://www.animalhouseshelter.com/.
