5. You will make a lasting impact.
Service dogs are life-changing for people with disabilities. My service dog not only helps me with day-to-day tasks, he has greatly improved my quality of life, allowing me to pursue my dreams unhindered by my disability.
4. Having A Desire To Support Individuals With Disabilities
Thousands of Americans live their daily lives with disabilities that interfere with activities that many of us take for granted such as opening their pantry doors, turning the lights on, hearing a timer go off, or walking through a crowd. ¬†By volunteering with us, you will directly support a person with a disability by giving them the tool they need to live independently – an assistance dog.
3. There’s No Minimum or Maximum Volunteer Time Required
Whether or not you want to volunteer a few hours a month, or learn to train a dog from beginning to end – your time is invaluable!
2. You Are Looking For A Social Group
Becoming a volunteer with PAD is like joining a fun new social club! ¬†You’ll have opportunities to learn in small groups, and then take dogs in training out on the town with other volunteer trainers!
1. You Want To Be The Change You Wish To See In The World
An assistance dog provides pure independence for someone with a disability – that is something that is impossible to imagine until you see a team in action, and even then you only get a glimpse at what a gift it truly is. ¬†By volunteering your time, you are giving that gift to someone in need and making the world a better place.
