Description

Volunteer puppy raising club for Guide Dogs for the Blind (@gdb_official) located in Phoenix (Northwest), AZ.

Guide Dogs for the Blind (GDB) is a nonprofit, charitable organization that was established in 1942 to provide a safe means of mobility for people who are blind and visually impaired. GDB is the largest guide dog school in the country, and continues its dedication to quality student training services and extensive follow-up support for graduates. Our programs are made possible through the teamwork of staff, volunteers and generous donors. GDB receives no government funds. Services are provided to students from the United States and Canada at no cost to them. We operate two training facilities (one is headquartered in San Rafael, California-20 miles north of San Francisco, another in Boring, Oregon-25 miles east of Portland), and have more than 2,000 volunteer puppy raising families throughout the Western states. More than 15,000 teams have graduated since our founding, and there are approximately 2,200 active guide dog teams currently in the field.
