Raise a Puppy, Change a Life!
Become a Volunteer Puppy Raiser!
Puppy Raisers provide a loving home and teach the puppy basic obedience cues. It is an 8 - 10 month commitment and includes socializing the puppy in a variety of situations. No prior dog training experience is needed, just a willingness to care for and train the puppy during its first year!
ADNW provides a starter supply of basic items (leash, collar, bowls, grooming items, crate, toys, etc). Puppy raisers are responsible for purchasing puppy food and some additional supplies. All veterinary expenses are covered by ADNW.
Fenced-in yard preferred
Puppy must accompany their raiser on daily outings (work, school, events)
Puppy raisers must attend classes twice a month (zoom or in person) and complete daily training sessions
