Volunteer FAQ

I would like to volunteer for your organization. What can I do?

We LOVE volunteers!! We have an active group of volunteers in the Ocala/ The Villages area that socialize dogs on the weekends.  You must fill out an application (found under the “Apply” tab) and mail it to:

Patriot Service Dogs
10545 SE 42nd CT
Belleview, FL 34420

We will be in touch to let you know when the next volunteer orientation is. These are usually held in The Villages, but you do not have to live there to be a volunteer. A home visit will follow that orientation. I promise we don’t care about your taste in furniture. We want to make sure our dogs in training will be safe. Once you finish the orientation process, you will understand what is expected from a weekend raiser. We have a great group of volunteers to help you figure it all out.

I want to do something for Patriot Service Dogs, but I can’t take a dog. How else can I volunteer?

While we are a dog group, we have many other needs. We love new fundraising ideas and people to execute them. Some people have set up spots to collect donations and then bring them to the group. We can always use someone to sit at booths to hand out literature or help during our training week. Please fill out an application (found under the “Apply” tab) and let us know that you are interested but do not want to have a dog. We will find a spot for you!
