Home Litter Care
Within one week of birth, Home Litter Care Volunteers bring a mother dog (brood) and her litter of puppies into their home and provide all the care, exercise, and socialization that the puppies and dog need for approximately two to five weeks. The broods enjoy the hustle and bustle of home life, and the puppies thrive in clean, warm, busy areas with lots of new things to capture their interest.
Active or retired foster families and retired puppy raisers are ideal candidates for this special program, because they are already familiar with Guiding Eyes’ high standards of care. Other dog-loving volunteers are welcome to apply provided they can meet the requirements of the program. Responsibilities include providing a safe and loving home environment, grooming and feeding, socialization, and lots and lots of love!
Guiding Eyes provides all necessary equipment, training in early socialization and home litter care, and staff support including access to 24 hour medical care.
