Hero Dogs, Inc.
ADDRESS WILL BE SENT THE FRIDAY BEFORE THE EVENT
Laytonsville, MD 20882
This presentation is for anyone who is interested in learning more about Hero Dogs, whether as a potential applicant, volunteer, donor, or other supporter.
Would you like to learn more about Hero Dogs? Are you interested in volunteering*? Are you a veteran who may be interested in applying to receive a service dog?
The first hour of the presentation will include:
- Mission and background of Hero Dogs,
- Overview of Hero Dogs programs,
- Live demonstration of service dog skills, and
- Outline of volunteer opportunities
Then we will break for a tour of the facility. Those interested in applying for a service dog, their family members and other advocates, and anyone interested in learning more about partnering with a service dog should plan to stay for the second half of the presentation which will include:
- The Hero Dogs application process
- Team training
- Living with a service dog
- Q & A
*All Hero Dogs volunteers and potential volunteers should attend this session at least once. This is also a great event for youth groups to attend to learn about service dogs.
Please note: directions to the facility will be e-mailed on the Friday before the event to those who have registered.
