Dogs for Better Lives

We are currently looking for volunteers to become both long-term and short-term Breeder Caretakers. Our Breeder Caretakers care for and provide a safe environment for both the breeder dog sand the puppies they whelp. While fostering a breeder dog you can expect to; record heat cycles, take the breeder dog to the vet for breeding purposes (ultrasounds, hormone level checks, and wellness checks), help whelp the puppies, record puppy information, work with and communicate to Dogs for Better Lives' representatives, and other various tasks. Experience is preferred but not required.

Note: All of our dogs are bred with the sole purpose of providing us with puppies who will one day have the potential to become future assistance dogs. Our goal is to purposefully breed dogs with specific temperaments and health clearances so that we may obtain puppies who have those temperaments and health clearances to work in our Autism, Hearing, and Facility Assistance Dog programs. We do not breed pet dogs.

Join us in our mission to change lives by becoming a Breeder Caretaker today! For more information, please contact Hannah Crane at: hannah@dogsforbetterlives.org
