Are you interested in volunteering, but not sure where?

If you are crazy about dogs, would like to become part of our community and develop new friendships, this could be the perfect place for you.

COPE Service Dogs is offering the following Rewarding Volunteer Positions:

• Become a COPE Puppy Raiser – Imagine being part of a program that nurtures future service dogs who will impact the lives of more than 40 people even before they are matched with someone living with a disability. That’s what COPE Puppy Raisers accomplish – their contribution is invaluable. Puppies in training are placed with Puppy Raisers from the time they are 8 weeks old, until they move on to do their life’s work approximately 2 years later.

• Become a COPE Puppy Sitter – Puppy Sitters are needed from time to time to support Puppy Raisers when the puppies need short-term care.

• Become a COPE Community Canine Partner – Picture yourself and your wonderful canine companion being out in the community offering therapy visits where they are so badly needed.
