Paws for Purple Hearts (PPH) seeks Puppy Parents/Fosters for our service dogs in training! Puppy Parents play a crucial role in in the life of a service dog by socializing the dog to new environments, experiences, and people. Puppies’ minds are like sponges and the experiences that a service dog has early in life are critical to its later development and behavior. Not only will raising a service puppy be fun and exciting for you, it helps us to further our mission to provide highly trained service dogs to service members and veterans with disabilities. The ages of the dogs in training range from 4 months to 2 years and all dogs are either Labrador Retrievers, Golden Retrievers or Labrador/Golden Retriever crosses.

As a volunteer Puppy Parent, Paws for Purple Hearts will provide some of the items necessary to raise a puppy in your home, such as a leash, toys, harness, treats, dog bed, kennel, and food. Any other items purchased for the puppy are considered a tax-deductible in-kind donation to Paws for Purple Hearts.
