How can you become a volunteer?

Except for military service, you become a volunteer by offering your services at no charge to an organization or individual. [You volunteer for military service by offering to serve, but if you are accepted, you are paid for your service.] The easiest way to volunteer is to find a non-profit organization in your area and tell them you are interested in helping out as a volunteer. These organizations depend on volunteers and are always looking for more help. Some national organizations to check out are: ASPCA, Habitat For Humanity, Local Food Banks and Big Brothers Big Sisters. If you are interested specifically in volunteering with animals, check out your local animal shelters, rescue groups and pounds.

Can a rental home deny multiple service dogs?

It depends on if the person can show disability status and possibly the state you live in. You may request documentation that the person is legally disabled (but may not pry into the particulars of their disability). If they are legally disabled (substantial impairment of one or more major life activities) they are allowed to have one or more service dogs. Some people actually use two service dogs at the same time. Some people maintain an alternate in case something happens to their main service dog. In some states service dogs in training are allowed anywhere service dogs are and thus must be allowed- it is not uncommon to have one in training while an older one works. If a medical professional writes a letter that the dogs are needed for a medical reason, under the Fair Housing Act you must allow them even if they aren't service dogs or service dogs in training. These are generally called emotional support animals.

Are dog pounds bad?

As a volunteer at kill shelter I can say that they are both good and bad. They are good as the dogs are out of danger that running loose can cause. But depending on the personnel at the pound they can be very bad places for dogs. If you have a staff that cares for dogs, that is the best situation. If not, like the one I volunteer at, it can be as dangerous to their longevity as running loose. Pounds in themselves are not good or bad, it is the people who run them that determines the good or bad condition's. Some dogs with medical problems they may get treatment for the first time at a well run pound, and they may get spay or neutered and make the dog much healthier as a result. But as I volunteer at a shelter that the management favors Cats over Dogs, the dogs get the dirty end of the stick when they come in.

Is there compensation for raising seeing eye dogs?

Usually not. Service Dogs in general rely on volunteers to help raise the puppies to a trainable age. Some programs pay for all vet care and feeding, while others rely on the family to it. It is not a money making industry. It relies on thousands of hours of volunteer training and care to keep the service dog affordable to the disabled recipient. The family can write off some of the expenses as a donation to the dog's charity.
