Volunteers are a crucial part of the 3K9 team. Our volunteers give their time, homes, and hearts to contribute to several different areas of 3K9 every day functions. There are various opportunities for volunteering with 3K9. If you are interested in opening your heart, or home to one of our puppies, or interested in volunteering in any way, please read more about the different volunteer opportunities below and find out how you can become a part of our 3K9 family.
Puppy foster families provide the structural foundation our puppies need to become successful service dogs for life! Puppies are fostered from ages 10 weeks to 9 months. Puppies are taught basic obedience and manners during this time period. Puppy foster families are carefully screened and background and home visits performed throughout the foster time period. Applications for foster families now being accepted for review.
Service Dog Socialization
Service dogs need extensive exposure to all types of every day interactions and socialization. Service dogs need to have exposure to other dogs, kids, businesses, and all types of environments. If you are interested in helping to volunteer time to help service dogs in training to receive this exposure please contact us. Volunteers are needed to help provide distractions as well as to help dogs practice new tasks and manners.
Be an advocate for working dogs and their handlers. Help 3K9 spread the cause by sharing information with your community. Public awareness of what our dogs can do, as well as their rights to public access throughout the community is much needed. If you have a group you would like us to speak to, or if you would like to help spread the word, please contact us today!
Fundraising opportunities are imperative to the success of 3K9 we strive to provide financial assistance and scholarships to handlers who demonstrate need, as well as depend on donations to help keep training costs as low as possible. If you are interested in heading up a campaign of cookies, Tupperware, handbags and beyond, please let us know!
