Prospective Students

Guiding Eyes for the Blind was established in 1954, and has provided more than 7,000 blind and visually impaired men and women with specially bred dogs that grant them dignity, freedom, and greater independence.

Guide dogs continue to expand horizons for people with vision loss.  From college to marriage to the workplace to kids’ soccer games, our graduates reach new heights with their Guiding Eyes dogs by their sides.

In 2008, Heeling Autism service dogs began providing safety and companionship for children with autism.  Our dogs have exceeded our expectations, and more importantly, those of the families that we serve, in countless ways.  The program’s outcomes are tangible and evoke hope for the future.

Thank you for your interest in Guiding Eyes.  We encourage you to read through the information on these pages, and to contact us with any questions.  Whether you are considering a guide dog or a Heeling Autism service dog, we look forward to getting to know you.
