Puppies with Purpose is an service organization in Columbia, Missouri that helps raise service puppies in training. If you would like to get involved, there are a number of ways you can do so.
There are essentially 3 levels of involvement.
1. The most basic level is that of general volunteer, who helps outing any way he/she can but has very limited responsibility for our dogs.
2. The next level is a “puppy sitter”, who is responsible for taking care of puppies for a few hours at a time.
3. Puppy sitters may graduate to puppy raisers, who have the most responsibility, as they are the primary caretakers of the dogs.
We’re a growing organization and need help in a variety of areas. We welcome students and local residents to volunteer in various roles. Whether you’re interested in public relations, fund raising, arts and crafts, photography, blogging or playing training games with our puppies, you can help out. We require members to be involved and commit to at least 3 hours of service per semester.
If you would like to work as a volunteer in one of us committees, please sign up a committee to join! See Ready to Join for more detailed steps of joining us.
