Community Service Opportunities, Rochester, NY

The goal of using the term Community is too direct RocDog services in several different directions. The desire is to help work through the disconnection of Law Enforcement and the Community. Law Enforcement needs community support. As those relationships build, RocDog hopes to help build bridges and mending broken relationships from the past.

Volunteer Work Rochester, NY

If you are searching for volunteer openings in Rochester, NY, then you are in the right place. We work with diverse businesses and groups in the community. For example, Hospitals, Schools, Transitional Living Homes, Shelters, Nursing Homes, businesses, and any groups that could use the services.

Nonprofits with Therapy Dogs

Another possibility is to be able to provide therapy dogs for nonprofits to people as therapy dogs. The process can be hard. First, they must find the right Dog as a puppy and spend time training the dog for this work, and then finding a match with someone in need. It will take special staff to implement this type of program.

Are you looking for places to volunteer in Rochester, NY? A creative area to explore is the training of service dogs for people that have special needs. They understand that this is an idea that is down the road. These services will require highly trained people to work with these dogs and help placement with people. The list of people that can benefit from these types of dogs is long, for example, veterans that have come home with PTSD.
