In-person and on-screen volunteer opportunities are growing, so we’d love to hear from you!  

Visits take place during the weekday, in the evenings, and on weekends.  Right now we especially need volunteers during the weekday.


Steps in the registration process for PAL teams that make in-person visits:

  • participate in a one-hour introductory Zoom session

  • demonstrate at an in-person evaluation that you and your animal have the skills and temperament to be a safe, effective team

  • submit health records for your animal, and

  • demonstrate competency at two coached visits


As we schedule in-person evaluations of prospective dog/handler teams, we appreciate your patience.  We are working our way through a lot of inquiries received during the pandemic.
