Special naming a future guide dog puppy is a unique way to pay tribute to a member of your family, a dear friend or to commemorate a special occasion, while making a difference in the lives of people with vision loss by supporting Guiding Eyes for the Blind.

The guidelines for naming a Guiding Eyes for the Blind puppy are:
While we hope all puppies will complete the training program, there is no guarantee that your special named puppy will complete training to become a guide dog. Guiding Eyes believes each dog chooses its own career path, and not all dogs will choose the path to be a guide dog. Dogs may be selected to become part of our elite breeding stock, others are released and enter alternate service dog careers, or find wonderful homes with adoptive families. Only one Guiding Eyes puppy will be named per special name request regardless of outcome. Since each litter is assigned names according to a letter of the alphabet there may be a delay in the naming of the puppy.
Please direct your questions about the program or your gift to Rebekah Cross, Donor Relations Officer, 914-243-2211 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
