Volunteer Opportunities for Students

Emily Kennedy, Future Liberator

I’ve been blessed to have met several young people who are really enthusiastic about rescue. Since this is my son’s first year at Deltona High School, it was also brought to my attention that high school students must provide a certain number of community service hours!  I have a plan!

Future Liberators was really a dream that Vicki and I discussed last year, and since then it’s been refined!

We are searching for high school students who need volunteer hours for the Bright Futures Scholarship program, and who are planning on entering into the field of Veterinary Medicine, Training, Behavior, Grooming and anything in between!

Working with the student’s parents, we would like to offer a hands-on foster training program. Students would be required to actually foster a dog (preferably a pup) and follow The Dog Liberator’s foster program, which includes:

  • Crate Training
  • Leash Training
  • Socialization
  • Identifying Behavioral issues
  • Reporting Health information
  • Grooming
  • Vetting

Students will actually take their dog to our vet, and care for the dog after spay/neuter surgery.   Once the dog is ready, students will participate in the actual adoption process.

All of the student’s time spent is documented, and will be reported as community service hours performed!

Don’t live in the Central Florida area?  Don’t get discouraged!  We still may be able to find a way for you to volunteer for The Dog Liberator as a Future Liberator!

If you are interested in joining our program, just send me an email at TheDogLiberator@gmail.com

Shy Sharon

Shy SharonThis is a really hard shy/fearful case, and I made an effort to visit as much as possible to help socialize the dog we called Little Red.
