Four guide dogs in training pose in colorful holiday sweaters. Text reads: In celebration of #GivingTuesday, we took a break from guide dog training to model these fabulous holiday sweaters! Giving Tuesday at Guiding Eyes. Help us make a difference in people's lives/ guidingeyes.org/donate

This year, Guiding Eyes provided 150 guide dogs to individuals who are blind or visually impaired and 12 service dogs to families with children with autism. We also supported more than 1,000 active guide and service dog users around the world.  Your gifts allow our graduates to expand their horizons and achieve their goals. DONATE NOW.

November graduate Tom shares, “Baldwin is my first guide dog, and I can already see how much of a difference he will make in my life. I have such a joy working with him, and he is the kindest, most well-mannered dog I have ever met. There are no words to express what it means to me to be able to continue functioning like my sighted friends and family members. I am excited to bring my new friend home and make him part of our family.”

“I’ll never forget one particular outing with my first Guiding Eyes dog. I was crossing the street when a driver ran a red light and headed straight for us. My dog backed up quickly and got me to the curb, where concerned bystanders crowded around. I hugged him through my tears. I wonder if he knew he had just saved my life.” – Lisa Tuccio, October 2014 graduate
