Volunteers needed in San Antonio for guide dog training
Guide Dogs of Texas, a nonprofit that trains and provides guide dogs, is in desperate need of volunteers! Robert Kurzban shares the details:
Do you love puppies? (Trick question: the answer is always yes!) Are you well acquainted with training puppies? If so, Guide Dogs of Texas needs you — and so do their eager young pups!
Guide Dogs of Texas provides visually impaired Texans with fully-trained guide dogs. Even in the pandemic, the nonprofit has done their part to operate with a ‘business as usual’ approach. Of course, the visually impaired do not suddenly excel in the way of vision due to a pandemic… However, social distancing and safety precautions have caused the nonprofit’s volunteer list to dwindle.
If you are located in the San Antonio area, Robert Kurzban encourages you to apply to volunteer at Guide Dogs of Texas! The nonprofit organization is seeking volunteers for guide dog training, so a background in animal training is preferred but not required.
