Individual Volunteer Opportunities
Whether you choose to support WCC financially by making a gift online, or share your time and talent, WCC appreciates your involvement in our work to support wounded Veterans and their families. In addition to group volunteer projects, there are many individual volunteer opportunities including:
Puppy parents raise our assistance dogs for two years before the dog graduates and is placed with a Veteran or Military Family. Our puppy parents will be the first to tell you that the time, attention, and love they give to these future service dogs is incredibly rewarding and joyful. Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age to be eligible for this volunteer role. Learn more about becoming a puppy parent.
Puppy Sitters are similar to puppy parent volunteers but in a short-term capacity. Puppy sitter volunteers play an important role by providing a safe, nurturing environment for WCC service dogs in training (SDiT) on a temporary basis. Sometimes, SDiTs need a place to stay for a few days or even a few weeks. Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age to be eligible for this volunteer role. Learn more about becoming a puppy sitter. *Due to the amazing generosity of the local community, we are not currently accepting Puppy Sitter applications at this time.
Whelping/puppy watcher volunteers support WCC’s breeding program by assisting staff with continuous care of our breeders and future service dogs in training. In addition to ensuring optimal development by providing physical and mental enrichment, volunteers also assist with daily tasks to maintain a clean and safe environment. Individuals must be 18 years of age. Completion of a training course is required. *This volunteer opportunity is only available at the Healing Quarters location.
Kennel volunteers assist with day to day kennel tasks to maintain a clean, sanitary and orderly kennel. Volunteers must be at least 12 years of age and accompanied by an adult until they reach 16 years of age. Orientation and training are provided during the first scheduled volunteer shift. *This volunteer opportunity is only available at the Healing Quarters location.
Administrative volunteers provide support to staff by helping with common office duties such as data entry, filing, stuffing envelopes and organizing materials. Volunteers should be able to maintain confidentiality, be comfortable working independently and have knowledge of Microsoft Office Suite programs. Opportunities take place during regular business hours, Monday-Friday. *This volunteer opportunity is only available at the Healing Quarters location.
