The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
It is the mission of this organization to provide a service dog which is perfectly trained to meet the social, emotional and physical needs of handicapped individuals.
Since 2010 Perfect Fit Canines has been training service dogs to aid those in need. The organization initially concentrated on providing service dogs for those with autism and then expanded to train service dogs for various health conditions including balance, psychiatric support, cardiac conditions and diabetes. Perfect Fit Canines has also trained a facility dog for a school dedicated to autism. We rely on dedicated volunteers to provide loving homes to the service dogs in training, socialize them in public and obedience training. Without these dedicated individuals we would not be able to fulfill our mission. Perfect Fit Canines provides all veterinary costs, equipment costs and the cost of training classes. The volunteer is responsible only for the cost of food, treats and toys.
