Since 1946, The Guide Dog Foundation has provided guide dogs, free of charge, to the blind and visually impaired, who seek enhanced mobility and independence. A sister organization of The Guide Dog Foundation, America’s VetDogs, was established to provide assistance dogs, free of charge, to disabled veterans and those who have honorably served our country. Both organizations rely on voluntary contributions from individual donors, corporations, foundations and service organizations to fund its efforts.

My wife and I have been “puppy raisers” for over 19 years and have raised and socialized 11 “guide dogs in training”. They have either become working guide dogs or have been placed with a disabled military veteran. Barclay, the last dog we raised, is now in formal training for guide dog work. We’ll keep you posted on his progress. On the trip will be OUR 5 month old “guide dog in training”!

Donations can be made in several ways:
