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.
Puppy Raisers are individuals committed to raising one of our puppies for 16 to 18 months. During that time they will be socializing the puppy and training the puppy in basic service dog skills. *No dog training experience is required*
Puppy Sitters have a more flexible time commitment; they watch the puppy when their Puppy Raisers go out of town. Both positions are very much needed!

If this is of interest to you please fill out a volunteer application ( https://www.z2systems.com/np/clients/herodogs/survey.jsp?surveyId=4&) to start the volunteer process.
