Guiding Eyes for the Blind

Planet Dog Recreation Area for Guiding Eyes Dogs
Yorktown Heights, NY

Guiding Eyes for the Blind is an internationally accredited nonprofit guide dog school with a 50-plus year legacy of providing the blind and visually impaired with superior Guiding Eyes dogs, training and lifetime support services. Their family of professionals and volunteers are all committed to giving their students the gift of greater personal freedom, independence and dignity by providing them with the finest bred and trained guide dogs in the world. Our 2011-2012 grant will fund and support the provision of Planet Dog products and Guiding Eyes training materials to assist volunteers in their role as puppy raiser. We will outfit their volunteers with a selection of items to facilitate their volunteer work with the puppies. They expect to distribute 200 kits in the next year.
