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.

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.
