Susquehanna Service Dogs in need of puppy trainers

Susquehanna Service Dogs, a program of Keystone Human Services, is in need of puppy raisers. In the next few months they’ll be receiving multiple litters and need about 30 volunteers. The puppies spend about 16 to 18 months living with the volunteer puppy raisers.
“ We want a large house with many children, a retired couple who just sent their children off, we look for a variety so that our dogs have different experiences to go through, “ says Rebecca Lamb, Susquehanna Service Dogs


Kerry Wevodau works at Susquehanna Service Dogs and  a puppy raiser herself, says the work that goes into training these dogs is rewarding.

“She may go off and make a difference and that’s going to be worth it. It’s a lot of work but it’s fun.  I mean how can you not love hanging out with a dog ? ,” says Wevodau

    Even though this isn’t the organization I train service dogs with, it’s still a huge help if people volunteer for puppy training any way they can!
