There are many ways to volunteer with NEADS, on our campus, off-site, and at home.
At Home and Off Site
Full-Time Puppy Raisers
Full-time Puppy Raisers are dedicated volunteers who take our Service Dogs in Training into their homes and look after them for 12 to 16 months, working on critical socialization and basic obedience. Learn more.
NEADS has two Sitter options:
Weekend Puppy Sitters take puppies in the Early Learning Center home for a weekend.
Sitters for Dogs in Training take them into their homes for anywhere from two days to two weeks while their Puppy Raisers are away or when the dogs are in transition.
On the NEADS Campus
Nursery volunteers work with puppies that are between 4 to 8 weeks old. They help with socializations, managing puppy play time, and giving one on one time to our broods. Learn more.
