Raise a Pup Change a Life

Join us in making a difference while learning new things and having fun.  There is nothing like the love of a puppy mixed with the support of friends and family.  The commitment is approximately 15 months for an 8-10 week old puppy and less for an older Transfer.  Puppy sitting is provided by club members when you travel.  Puppies can also thrive in the workplace.
