Welcome to the Genesis Assistance Dogs, Inc. Volunteer Program! As a small organization, Genesis relies solely on donations from our generous supporters, and through various fundraising activities during the year. Due to our size, Genesis does not have a paid staff and all work done for the organization is done so on a purely volunteer basis, and is overseen by the organization’s Board of Directors.
There are many ways for you to become involved with our organization.
We need people to be puppy raisers. Puppy Raisers take the Service Dogs In Training into their homes to continue to advance the pups toward their ultimate goal of being an Assistance Dog. Puppy raising includes reinforcing known commands, teaching and training new commands and manners, grooming, taking the dog to work and out in public, taking the dog to Genesis events, hugging and playing with the dog! We welcome you and your family to come and learn how to train a future Genesis Assistance Dog. No experience is necessary; we will show you how to work with our assistance dogs in Florida.
We need volunteers to staff events, assist with social media, raise money and awareness, host events and many other things.
If you are interested in becoming a Genesis volunteer, please see Volunteer Opportunities and complete a Volunteer Form. For additional information, please contact Charlie Eagle.
