About Us

Guiding Eyes is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides superbly bred and trained guide dogs to men and women who are blind or visually impaired. Dogs not suited for guide work may become service dogs for children on the autism spectrum. All Guiding Eyes dogs expand horizons for people to achieve life’s goals.

All services are offered free of charge to people who are blind or visually impaired and to families with children with autism.

Guiding Eyes is dependent upon contributions to fulfill its mission. Our Headquarters and Training Center is located in Yorktown Heights, N.Y. and our Canine Development Center is in Patterson, N.Y.

We are an accredited member of the International Guide Dog Federation (IGDF), the organization establishing worldwide standards for the breeding and training of guide dogs.
