Job Vacancy: Puppy Raisers (Volunteer)
Locations: Auckland, Cambridge, Hamilton, Tauranga or Canterbury-based.
Position type: Volunteer
Start date: Immediately
We're looking for volunteer puppy raisers to help us care for, and socialise our puppies in training. Please apply here.
Puppies live with their puppy raiser until they are about 12-18 months of age, then return to Assistance Dogs to be formally trained for a New Zealander with a disability. ADNZT covers the cost of feeding and vet care, and there is a supervisor available throughout to support you.
To become a puppy raiser, you must:
Have a fully fenced and secure property
Have time to spend socialising and exercising your pup
Be available to meet for puppy development training
If you’d like to open your home and heart to a life-changing puppy, we’d love to hear from you.
