Wanted: Puppy Raisers & Sitters
Do you love dogs? Want to make a difference in the life of a blind person? Eyes For Others, the Yolo County puppy raising club for Guide Dogs for the Blind is looking for a few good raisers.
No experience is necessary; all training is provided locally by puppy club volunteers. Can't commit 12-14 months to raising a puppy? You might start a puppy for 2-3 months or finish raising a "transfer" pup. Puppy sitters are also needed to assist current raisers. Interested? Contact Julianne at gotjulie@gmail.com for more information.

Graduations are at 1:30 pm with tours on the California campus at either 10:30 am or 12 noon. 2018 Graduation dates in California and Oregon.
