Volunteer Drivers

Our Volunteer Drivers assist the staff of both our Training School in Yorktown and our Canine Development Center in Patterson by transporting our puppies and dogs between facilities and the regions we serve, using vehicles provided by Guiding Eyes. Trips are usually two to eight hours in duration (although some may be longer), and include destinations such as regional airports, veterinary specialists, and designated pick-up or drop-off locations.

This volunteer opportunity is perfect for someone who enjoys driving and is comfortable in a van-sized vehicle, can comfortably lift up to 75 lbs, and enjoys meeting new people. Guiding Eyes provides a vehicle outfitted for the safe transportation of animals, directions to and from your destination, and a cell phone, gas card, and EZ Pass for use during the trip.dogs in van
