Home Litter Care


Home Litter Care volunteers take a BluePath breeder mom (brood) and her pups into their homes for approximately five weeks. They provide early socialization and care for our youngest future service dogs, while also offering love and support to their mom.

The time commitment varies dependent on the size of the litter but includes intensive cleaning, regular feeding, walking the brood and daily grooming. All equipment and supplies are provided, with the exception of newspaper.

Program Requirements

  • Live within 45 minutes of Hopewell Junction and have the ability to travel to our headquarters to pick up and drop off puppies and equipment.   

  • Follow all cleaning, feeding and socialization guidelines provided.

Please note that Home Litter Care opportunities are difficult to predict and may happen infrequently.  If this isn’t a fit for you, please consider one of our other volunteer opportunities, such as sitting, puppy raising or fostering.
