Volunteer or Intern at the Honey's Garden Facility! 
Thank you for your interest in volunteering onsite at
Honeys Garden for Medical Alert Dogs SA!

What Volunteers Do:
As a non-profit company, we depend heavily on volunteers. They help to socialise, exercise, stimulate and groom our service dogs in training at our facility. 
Volunteers may also be given the opportunity to go on public access outings with one of our trainers to assist, or be asked to assist with handling a dog in a group class should the opportunity arise. 
We also need maintenance volunteers who would like to assist in improving our facilities and building equipment.
General Info:
We allow anybody over 10 years of age to volunteer at our facility. Anyone under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Volunteers are required to commit to at least three hours twice a month for at least three months in a row.
Volunteers can volunteer between the hours of 10am and 6pm Monday to Saturday.

This program is perfect for scout groups, company volunteer days, school service projects, or church groups looking to volunteer in their community, among many others! Group volunteer visits generally include a presentation about Honey's Garden, an introduction to the dogs, and about 6 hours of work with a break at around half way.
