Putnam Service Dogs pup

We're changing lives - 1 dog at a time.... and you could raise that dog!

You can choose whether you want to raise one of our pups for 6, 12, or 18 months. Just indicate on the application how long you'd like to serve.

Here's our application, with more information:
https://www.putnamservicedogs.org/volunteer-to-be-a-puppy-raiser/

Raisers are expected to care for, love, exercise, train, socialize the pup. You'll attend weekly group training classes. Classes are usually during the day, during the week. Their timing is set based on our raisers' preferences. Our trainers will also visit your home to support your efforts.

Our Trainers will guide you on how to raise a service dog pup for us. There's nothing dificult about it if you're able to follow their directions. You will learn a LOT about dogs, and live with a GREAT dog. Our mixed breed pups are carefully selected by our trainers from rescue groups. We use only positive, humane training techniques.

Your support will make a difference! We can't produce a service home without the loving, guiding home of a volunteer raiser to start the pup on its journey. On average, the pup will live with you 16 months.

Here's a chance to truly make a difference!
