Volunteer with Us //

We are looking for volunteers who will bring positive energy and a strong drive to help!


Volunteers do not necessarily have the time; they have the heart.

Did you know that the 9 members of the Pawsitively Elgin Committee are all volunteers? Together they put hundreds of hours into the annual event just because they all love animals and want to help them have a voice. It’s really that simple.
