Bringing pet parents together to do good and make a difference in Chicago.
Whether you are a doting pet parent or just a huge fan of all things animal-related, coming together to advocate and support each other creates community in our beautiful city. Through volunteerism, partnerships, and online awareness, we work hard to enhance the lives of all people, dogs, and cats. Here are just a few of the incredible organizations we appreciate most.
Places We Love
Friendship Pet Pantry
Friendship Pet Food Pantry is a program of The Friendship Center, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to alleviating hunger and poverty in area neighborhoods. The pet food pantry program is 100% volunteer-based; all donations are tax deductible and go directly toward the purchase of much-needed pet food and low-cost preventive medical services for dogs and cats. Team Rover-Time will gather on April 21st, 2018 to assist with pet food distribution. Click here to learn more about this monthly volunteer opportunity.

One Tail at a Time
Rover-Time gave five years of associate board membership and was the top sponsor of their annual Houndstooth Gala for four years because we sincerely adore the people and passion found within this organization. One Tail at a Time formed ten years ago and has assisted with over 2,250 adoptions but that’s not all they’ve done. Click here to view their impressive timeline. They’re ready and willing to help make Chicago the next no-kill city.
Chicagoland Rescue Intervention & Support Program
Chicagoland Rescue Intervention & Support Program, or CRISP, was created to provide owners and pets with thoughtful and loving alternatives to the shelter. In 2017, Rover-Time sponsored the design and development of CRISP’s first website so the organization could reach people and potential donors with ease. Follow their inspirational Facebook page to learn more about their upcoming events.
Community Pet Day
Community Pet Days are hosted in underserved neighborhoods biannually in Chicago. At these events, Chicago Community Pet Coalition provides services such as microchipping and vaccinating pets, as well as supply flea and tick medication, spay/neuter vouchers, collars, leashes, harnesses, food and other items to families who may have difficulty caring for their pets. Rover-Time has had the opportunity to volunteer at these events and it’s easily one of our favorite days of the year. To make a donation, click here.
Rover-Time's Donation Drive for CACC
Chicago Animal Care and Control (CACC) protects public safety and ensures the humane care of animals through sheltering, pet placement, education, and animal law enforcement. In 2018, Rover-Time’s friends and family raised over $4,000 for CACC and we delivered an amazing haul to their shelter on March 3. CACC doesn’t accept monetary donations so Rover-Time loves organizing this annual supply drive. We’re committed to filling CACC’s shelves with common and specialty items for Chicago’s neediest dogs and cats.
