Volunteer Opportunities with Guide Dogs of the Desert

  • Puppy Raisers support: Puppy Raisers take 3-month-old puppies into their homes until

    they reach 18-22 months of age. Our Puppy Raisers share their love and time to help a
    visually impaired person by giving guide dog puppies a special upbringing. With continual
    support and guidance from our certified trainers, Puppy Raisers provide obedience and
    manners training that serve as the foundation for future guide dog training.

  • Guide Dogs of the Desert Campus support: Volunteer on an ongoing basis to welcome
    visitors at the reception desk or conduct tours of the campus. Volunteer at the Puppy Den to
    play with the puppies. Become a member of our Ambassadors Group – a group of volunteers
    trained to speak to service clubs, community groups and schools. Volunteer to support
    community outreach efforts to increase awareness of who we are, what we do, how we do it
    and how people can help.

  • Specialty volunteer support: Have a special talent of skill you think that we might need?
    Are you an attorney, teacher, artist, baker or recreation specialist? Let us know your talents
    and skills to devote to a special project to support our students and our mission.

  • Youth Volunteer Opportunities: Students 16 to 18 years old with community service
    volunteer hours to contribute. Scouts and service groups with a focused volunteer project.
