Volunteering with Karma Dogs is a simple way to help give back to your community- and it's fun, too! And you don't have to have a Karma Dog to volunteer. If you would like to volunteer without a dog, you will be doing things like helping kids pick out books,
scheduling appointments, walking dogs and helping promote Karma Dogs and it's programs.
If you volunteer with your dog, you will assist your dog while kids read to him/her or help carry out treatment plans with a therapist working with the developmentally disabled. Your dog must meet our requirements and pass an obedience and temperament test. For information on testing and requirements, please download the PDF's below.
If you would like to help, but don't have a dog, we still have many opportunities! We need people to help ensure our programs run smoothly, help with fund raising and grants and data entry. Give back today!
Most of our programs take place on the weekends or after business hours, but we are hoping to be able to expand our programs based on volunteer availability. If you are interested in becoming a Karma Team or just helping out, please visit the links below or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Not sure if your dog will pass the test? Be sure to read over the test first. If your dog doesn't pass the first time, don't be discouraged! Most dogs don't pass on their first try. The most common reason for needing more work? Less than perfect leash skills, not being friendly and confident around other dogs, being anxious in a new environment or
resisting a restraining hug.
