Guiding Eyes cares deeply about our mission – to provide guide dogs to people with vision loss. As we navigate through the current public health crisis and move forward, the health and safety of our students and staff remain our highest priority.

Until the Residential Training Program is able to resume, our visually impaired applicants are being considered for Home Training. After assessing all aspects of the potential training, our Training Department establishes a plan which includes accessibility of travel routes, physical distancing details, PPE training, and availability within governmental guidelines and clearance in their local area.

We are excited to present our newest Guide Dog Teams and congratulate all involved!  We are grateful to the many volunteers who provided so much and thank all who have worked so hard or supported our efforts in making these teams possible.
