ORGANIZATION: Dogs for Better Lives

Our Puppy Raiser program brings people of all ages together, creating a community of caring and hardworking puppy raisers. We look for potential puppy raisers who are willing to dedicate their time to help us build a solid foundation for these future Assistance Dogs.

Our puppy raisers receive a puppy at 8 weeks of age and continue to raise the puppy until it is 14 months of age. During their time raising, they attend basic obedience classes with their puppies. They also go on public outings to expose the puppies to a multitude of different environments. After the year of raising and training, the puppies are ready to return to Dogs for Better Lives to begin their next step towards becoming an Assistance Dog.

Our puppy raisers are integral to what we do. We are just as committed to them as they are to our organization, and together we create a community dedicated to helping others. As we continue to grow as an organization, so will the rapidly increasing need for puppy raisers. The more dogs we rescue or puppies that are raised, the more people we can serve.

We currently place puppies with volunteer raisers in the following areas:

  • Southern Oregon
  • Greater Seattle, WA (Puget Sound)
  • Northern California
  • Massachusetts
  • New Hampshire
