Caring for a litter of adorable Guiding Eyes puppies can be one of the most extraordinary opportunities Guiding Eyes has to offer.
Home Litter Care volunteers welcome a brood dog and her newborn puppies into their home, providing a safe and positive environment for them, and a joyful and fulfilling experience for themselves. For 3 to 5 weeks, HLC volunteers provide the loving care, gentle massage, and progressive socialization these puppies need to thrive, and a supportive atmosphere with gentle exercise for the brood, as she cares for her pups. The time needed to properly care for these treasured houseguests depends upon the size of the litter.
If you become a Home Litter Volunteer, you will play a critical role in giving these potential future guide dogs a strong beginning in their first weeks of learning and growing. Guiding Eyes provides all the equipment, training and support necessary to ensure a positive and rewarding experience.

If you live within one hour of our Canine Development Center in Patterson, NY, please carefully review our program requirements to see if being a Home Litter Care volunteer is the right opportunity for you!
