NYC region accepting new volunteers
On Sunday, June 23, the region will hold an open house at the Animal Medical Center, located at 510 E. 62nd Street, New York, NY. The event will start at 5:00pm and run until about 7:00pm. Guests will learn what it’s like to be a Puppy Raiser as they meet Guiding Eyes staff and volunteers and cuddle with pups in training. Blind musician Blessing Offor will speak about his experience living in NYC with guide dogs. Read the full press release here.
Following the open house, potential volunteers will attend a series of orientation classes before receiving a puppy to raise. These will be held on July 21, July 28 and August 4.
