We Did It – Together!

leader-dog-gs

Thank you to everyone who made a donation, multi-year pledge or grant to help us reach our $14.5 million goal!

Though fundraising is over, we are still working on the renovation of our kennel into a Canine Development Center that will strengthen the training process of our dogs allowing them to develop the skills and characteristics necessary to handle the responsibility of being a guide dog. After all, our Leader Dogs have the immense responsibility of being the eyes of their human companions.
