In these troubling times, we need your support to keep puppies on the path to graduation!

The journey from playful puppy to world-class Guide Dog is always a challenge, let alone with the trials of coronavirus.

To prepare for a life-changing partnership with a person with low vision or blindness, every puppy must complete a carefully designed and very thorough lesson plan. And while the puppies definitely look cute on camera, they can’t hop on a video call—or participate in home schooling—like the rest of us.

Puppies and pre-graduation Guide Dogs need to maintain their crucial training, both at our facilities and out in the community. To ensure the safety of our clients, our puppies and our Guide Dog trainers, we have to uphold some new measures with additional costs.

Two very small yellow puppies are sleeping, snuggled up on a white blanket.

New costs due to coronavirus include:

  • Regularly deep cleaning all environments on-site
  • Purchasing and providing protective equipment, to ensure our trainers are safe in the community
  • Frequently washing and sanitizing all equipment used in community training sessions

We need to train our pups for their incredible future, because they need an amazing set of skills to support people with low vision and blindness.

Only your generous contributions ensure we have the resources to give our puppies everything they need for success!
