PADS seeks puppy raisers

Burnaby-based Pacific Assistance Dogs Society (PADS) is seeking puppy-raisers for nine nine-week old puppies donated from south of the border.

PADS trains assistance dogs for people with physical disabilities or who are deaf or hard-of-hearing.

It needs at least 20 puppy-raisers to help socialize the pups, who are being donated by Guide Dogs of the Blind in California who had more puppies than they had space to accommodate them. The arrived in Burnaby last week.
