The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Our puppy raisers have the important job of raising our young dogs to help them reach their full potential. Puppy Raisers commit to caring for, nurturing and training an Anchor Assistance Dog puppy for around 12-18 months. The dog will live in your home, is expected to learn appropriate house behavior, basic obedience, and be socialized to prepare for work as a service animal. Anchor Assistance Dogs is committed to providing you with support and direction to ensure a positive and successful experience for both you and the dog. Our puppy raisers attend regular training classes and follow our positive reinforcement based training techniques. This is a fun and rewarding opportunity to learn about dog training, and give a true gift of love to someone in need.
