Guiding Eyes for the Blind

Become a Puppy Raiser
You can give the gift of independence by raising a Guiding Eyes dog!

We are actively seeking volunteer Puppy Raisers to care for our adorable, purpose-bred dogs during the first 16 months of their lives. Raisers teach puppies house manners and basic obedience while socializing them to the everyday world, thus laying the foundation for success in guide dog training. Guiding Eyes provides extensive support including weekly obedience classes, free veterinary care and local assistance.
