Guide Dogs of America seeks Kennel Volunteers!

Guide Dogs of America Announces New Volunteer Opportunity

Guide Dogs of America seeks Kennel Volunteers! Volunteers will work in the kennels on our campus in Sylmar, California and interact directly with our dogs. They will help with cleaning, bathing, laundry, feeding and play times, while getting a firsthand look at how things run “behind the scenes.” Boots and smocks will be provided.
