Weekend Foster Volunteers take our Service Dogs in Training into their homes on the weekend. This gives the dogs experience in a home that they would not normally get. It's a great way to help our dogs become better service dogs and companions for the Veterans they will serve.

Being a weekend foster home requires training, we offer a class once a month for anyone interested in joining our team.

The requirement is that you will take a dog home a minimum of one weekend a month.
