Congratulations to our photo contest winners!

 In News & Events

We received 200 incredible entries for this year’s photo contest.  The photos represented beautiful dogs from all areas of our program – pups in training, guide and service dogs and released dogs – as well as non Guiding Eyes dogs owned by friends of our organization.   We loved seeing so many photographs of dogs working, playing and simply loving life.  All the entries shared one common thread; our beloved canines add so much to our existence, whether guiding us safely to a destination or offering us love and support in our homes.  View all contest entries here.

Our judges had a very difficult time picking the winners!  Our 6th – 10th place photos, not ranked specifically and not posted in any particular order.  These will be displayed in our Yorktown Heights kennel building.
