National Volunteer Program

Canine Assistants’ National Volunteer Program, Noah’s Team, is designed to raise awareness and educate children and adults, on a national level, about service dogs and the amazing ways in which they assist people who have physical disabilities, seizures or other special needs. This is accomplished by teams of volunteers who are engaged in various activities in their local communities: presentations for schools, businesses, organizations and clubs; animal assisted therapy and education at hospitals, rehabilitation centers, nursing homes and schools; and fundraisers to benefit our various programs and future recipients (i.e. service dog teams).

Applications for the expansion of Noah’s Teams into new cities is currently on hold except for active recipients and their service dogs; however, we do encourage those interested in volunteering to contact a group, if there is one in your area, to be a support team member and assist with various events (see Noah’s Team Groups).
