It takes a village to raise these dogs and our village is filled with some very exceptional people. We always need volunteers to lend a hand at our events, fundraisers, and to join our committees. Our Board of Directors is made up completely of volunteers helping to grow our program and promote awareness to the incredible need of psychiatric service dogs in our community. Please consider joining us in making a difference in small and big ways every single day.  Here are just a few ways you can volunteer.   We have more exciting opportunities that we’re currently working on!


RallyUp is the leading all-in-one fundraising platform for nonprofits. If you are interested in running your own fundraiser to support The Exceptional Sidekick we have lots of ideas. We had one young man get pledges for the amount of times he could hit his lacrosse ball against a wall and he raised us close to $2000.

Community Service Hours

If your child is in need of community service hours we have lots of ideas from bake sales, lemonade stands, hanging posters around town, running errands, doing a food and toy drive, etc
