Help Raise a Future Assistance Dog!

Save to Favorites


  • 6 people are interested

Raisers host (aka foster) puppies and dogs in their homes while they grow up and get trained in. Hosting can be as short as one week, as long as two years, and anything in between! It is your choice how long you agree to host a dog in your home for our program.

Can Do Canines covers the costs of the dog food, vet visits, and monthly preventatives!

Volunteers in this program should live near (or be willing to drive to) the Twin Cities area or Eau Claire, WI to pick up and drop off dogs, to attend training classes once a month, and to bring dogs to receive vet care at our facility in New Hope, MN.

No experience is needed to work with our animals. We’re with you every step of the way!

We have amazing trainers to teach you how to raise a future assistance dog. Raisers will learn positive reinforcement training techniques in class once a month and get comfortable taking the puppy on public outings (to places like stores and libraries) three times a week.

By helping as a Raiser for a future assistance dog, you are enhancing the quality of life for people with disabilities. These dogs will grow up to bring their people more freedom, independence and peace of mind.

Plus, you get to snuggle with a life changing dog!
