Volunteer and Transform a Life!
At TLCAD, volunteers are critical to accomplishing our mission. We are deeply indebted to these amazing people. We strive to create an environment that is friendly, fulfilling, and fun for volunteers.
Our greatest area of need is for:
Attend weekly training sessions with staff to positively socialize the puppy and teach foundation behaviors.
Dog sitters must have a cat-free home with dog-friendly dogs only.
1. Come to public training outings to help us expose our dogs to various environments.
2. Assist with other TLCAD training tasks such as our shelter assessments and home visits.
3. Assist with TLCAD marketing and other admin.
This volunteer role involves 6 weeks of housing and caring for a shelter or rescue service dog candidate during TLCAD’s rescue assessment process. Volunteers will work with our training department to observe, socialize and prepare a service dog candidate to enter our prison service dog training program. After the 6-week assessment period, TLCAD either adopts the dog to become a service candidate, or works with rescues and shelters to find a loving forever home for the dog.
The shelter dogs we are assessing need to be fostered in a cat-free home with dog-friendly dogs only.
