Handi-Dogs's Rescue to Service program needs Foster homes for dogs that are selected from shelters and rescue groups because of their potential to be service dogs for people with disabilities. We are looking for loving people who are willing to give a little of their time to take their foster dog to a training class once a week and practice what they learned throughout the week.
We ask that our fosters give us insight into the socialization and temperament of their assigned dog as it's revealed through their daily interactions.
This is an extremely rewarding experience for both the people involved and the dogs.
It differs from other foster opportunities in that the dog and the foster parent receive training, the dog potentially builds a bond with a disabled person and as a foster, you get to see the progression and offer your input!
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
We'll work with your schedule.
