BC & Alberta Guide Dogs needs volunteers to help raise puppies on Vancouver Island that will become life-changing dogs for individuals who are blind/visually impaired and children with autism.
Our puppies live with volunteer families from 8 weeks of age until they start advanced training. All food and vet costs are covered. Volunteers receive ongoing training throughout the program.
There are several requirements to be a volunteers puppy raiser. They include:
• Be available for training during the day at least 3 times per month
• Live in the Victoria or Nanaimo area
• Be willing to take the puppy with you everywhere you go
• Be strong enough to control a large dog
