What Your Donation Supports
Puppy Raising & Breeding: Your generous donations will aid in the meticulous breeding and nurturing of puppies destined to become heroes. This is the first and crucial step to ensuring the health and temperament suitable for guide work.
Extensive Training: Training a Seeing Eye® dog is a rigorous process. With your help, each dog undergoes intensive training, ensuring they’re equipped to be the eyes for those who cannot see.
Blind Partner Training: Empowering the blind doesn’t end with providing a dog. The Seeing Eye also offers comprehensive training programs for the blind to efficiently, confidently, and safely handle their Seeing Eye® dogs.
Canine Health & Development Research: Pioneering research into canine health and development ensures the longevity and well-being of Seeing Eye® dogs, allowing them to perform their duties at peak condition.
How You Can Contribute
Make a One-Time Donation: Every bit helps. Make a one-time donation of any amount to aid in ongoing care, training, and research.
