Volunteers are crucial to the success of Leader Dogs for the Blind. They serve in essential positions throughout our operations both on campus and off. Combined, there are over 800 volunteers that help us empower people who are blind or visually impaired with lifelong skills for independent travel. Explore our volunteer options to see what's right for you!
Raise a Puppy
There’s no doubt what our puppies want to be when they grow up, but they need your help. As a volunteer puppy raiser, you’ll be the foundation a puppy needs to become a Leader Dog. And together, you’ll help someone who is blind or visually impaired live a life of freedom, safety and happiness.
Host a Breeding Dog
Hosting a breeding dog is a unique volunteer opportunity that invites you to bring a mom or dad dog into your family for the length of their breeding career—and beyond! Once your breeding mom or dad retires, they become a permanent member of your family.
Volunteer on Campus
Volunteers work all over our campus: with our dogs, in the lobby, vet clinic, puppy development or breeding areas. They also work with our clients on and off campus and support our philanthropy, client services, residential services, volunteer engagement, marketing and training staff.
