Volunteer Puppy Raiser

Date: Ongoing

Organized By: Guiding Eyes For The Blind

State: NY

Laura Marth

Thank you for your interest in becoming a puppy raiser!

The first step is to fill out a Puppy Raiser Application so that we can learn a little about you. Make sure youメve reviewed the region map, and confirmed that there is a region close to where you live. You will also want to review your responsibilities in raising a Guiding Eyes puppy so that you can determine whether raising a puppy matches your time, commitment and interests.

Puppy-raising is a very rewarding experience that involves everyone in the household. Many of our raisers get involved because it is a project that individuals or families can do while meeting people, who also love dogs and want to help others. Learning life lessons, giving to others, and learning about dogs are among the reasons people are drawn to raising a potential guide dog puppy.

Puppy raisers may be eligible to claim deductions on their income tax. For further clarification, please consult your tax professional.

Matching Interests: Requires Physical Ability (for example, lift 50 lbs.), Family friendly, Indoors, Outdoors, Animals
