ORGANIZATION: Guiding Eyes for the Blind


Do you love dogs? We need essential volunteer Puppy Raisers in our Cleveland East region to care for our adorable, future guide dogs in training during the first14-18 months of their lives. Raisers provide the pup with the love, socialization, house manners and basic obedience they will need to succeed in guide dog training. You’ll meet other people who love dogs and enjoy giving to others, while learning life lessons and taking pride in knowing you’re doing something extraordinary!

We have several flexible options within puppy raising that allow for a shorter time commitment. No previous dog experience is required, and current pet owners are welcome. Raisers are provided with extensive support including a dedicated staff member, small group training classes, free veterinary care, a crate. All raisers are required to complete an application and complete pre-placement training (virtual & in-person combination). Youth Raisers (12+) are welcome with the support of an adult who will help build their skills, drive the raiser to outings, and assist with raising responsibilities.

Explore our website to learn more. Please indicate if you are interested and we will email you with more information, including a link to join us at an upcoming info. session to learn if this is the right opportunity for you.
