Home Litter Care

We have an immediate need for Home Litter Caretakers.  Potential candidates must live within one hour of the Canine Development Center in Patterson, New York.  Please contact Elizabeth Martin at for more information.  (Note: Greatest need November 2017-January 2018)

C410.4Caring for a new litter can be one of the most rewarding opportunities that Guiding Eyes offers.

Our volunteers welcome a mother dog and her puppies into their homes within 1 week of birth and look after them for 2 to 5 weeks.

We provide all the necessary equipment, training, and support. Our volunteers provide the care, exercise, socialization, activity, interest, and love the dogs need to thrive.

Active or retired foster families and retired puppy raisers are ideal candidates since they’re familiar with our standards of care, but other dog-loving volunteers are welcome to apply. Take a look at our program requirements and see if being a home litter care volunteer could be the right opportunity for you.
