Can Do Canines

  • 11 people are interested

We at Can Do Canines are very excited that you are interested in being a part of our assistance dog program!

'Great Start’ volunteering is a way to help on a short term basis, but still be a part of assistance dog training. After our puppies leave the weaning prison around 10 weeks old, those bound for our puppy raising prisons will first need to go to a Great Start home for ten weeks to begin early socialization, basic obedience, and potty and crate training.

Once a prospective foster home completes an application, a staff person will contact them to attend an orientation and schedule a home visit.

Application information can be found by visiting volunteer.can-do-canines.org.

Our assistance dogs fetch amazing things. They provide the gifts of freedom, independence, and peace of mind to our clients and their families. These wonderful canines are often adopted from local animal shelters and are specially trained for our clients who live with disabilities that involve mobility challenges, hearing loss or deafness, seizure disorders, autism, or diabetes complicated by hypoglycemia unawareness. Dogs, training and supplies are provided to each client free of charge thanks to the work of dedicated volunteers and contributions from generous individuals, corporations, foundations and service groups like the Lions.
