Sit and stay for a while with current Canine Companions volunteers –
along with a few trained dogs - to learn how service dogs help clients
experience enhanced independence and how you can apply to help raise
puppies for the program.
What’s next: Informational sessions are set for 10:30 a.m.-noon Saturday, June 3, at Southwest Regional and 10:30 a.m.-noon Saturday, June 10, at the Golden Triangle Branch Library.
Dog-loving volunteers are needed to help turn puppies into service dogs.
- Specially bred puppies need a safe home, rides to obedience classes, healthy food, a chance to be social and lots of love.
- Each hour spent caring for a Canine Companions puppy is vital to its development as a future service dog.
- The puppy-raising program gives volunteers a unique opportunity to
assist with the organization’s very important mission by opening their
homes and hearts to the puppies.
The bottom line: As a destination for discovery for
all ages, the Fort Worth Public Library offers opportunities to learn
and experience new things and grow beyond traditional classroom
