Our Mission is to Provide Service Dog Education to Help People with Disabilities Live More Independent and Fulfilling Lives. Tax ID #47-2288228
Service dogs do amazing things to improve the lives of the persons they are assisting. In recent years, the numbers of people using service dogs and the number of services that dogs provide has rapidly expanded. The likelihood of coming in contact with a working service dog team is growing, yet the general public has little appreciation of these wonderful animals, their jobs, or how to interact with the people who use them. Moreover, the demand for an increased number of service dogs trained to help people with disabilities grows. Consequently we have made it our mission is to aid this challenge. We also aim to provide a higher level of understanding about service dog law, service dog etiquette, and service dog puppy raising to help the service dog industry reach a higher level of consciousness.
Overall, my experience volunteering with Growing Up Guide Pup was rewarding. Growing Up Guide Pup is a small nonprofit that will continue benefiting the public more and more as they grow. They aim to provide unique content that aligns with their mission of better educating the public about service dog etiquette and culture. I learned so much about this myself while volunteering! I would encourage volunteers to apply who are interested in educating the public about service dogs and who can work in an organized manner as the nonprofit is growing.
Growing up guide pup is a small but amazing nonprofit. The two founders are incredibly sweet/supportive and, allow a lot of flexibility on the tasks given. I'm so happy I got involved with this organization.
