Volunteers needed for training
Putnam Service Dogs, a nonprofit that serves people with physical disabilities other than blindness, is looking for volunteers to raise puppies from 10 weeks to about 20 months. If a dog doesn’t succeed in training, the volunteer may be able to adopt the animal.
Information sessions are planned for noon on Jan. 27 at the Putnam Diner in Patterson and noon on Jan. 28 at Panera Bread in Yorktown Heights. See putnamservicedogs.org.
