Socializing, Training, and Walking Dogs

There are two ways to get involved in helping us socialize our dogs and prepare them for adoption:
  • Participate in training sessions as a handler. This helps those who are fostering more than one dog. They can bring more dogs and volunteers assist as handlers.
  • If you have experience training dogs and can organize and lead training and walking events, we welcome your assistance.
