Veterans group needs puppy-raisers for future service dogs


Paws Assisting Veterans (PAVE) of Cornelius, OR is seeking volunteers to help raise puppies until they are old enough to begin advanced service dog training.  The PAVE website says, “Puppy raisers play an essential role in laying the groundwork for a successful and well-adapted service dog.”  Volunteers work with puppies for approximately 18 months, exposing them to a variety of people and environments.  The group teams service dogs with veterans who are suffering from mental or physical disabilities, and informs the public about the essential roles service dogs play in the lives of veterans.  Details
