Endless Story Opportunities
If you're a member of the media in search of a good story, you've come to the right place. The Guide Dog Foundation has amazing stories to tell, and limitless ways to tell them. Whether you're looking for an uplifting tale with a happy ending, a compelling angle for a story about the transformational power of an assistance dog, an inspiring tale of a person with a disability, or a professional expert to give opinions and advice on everything from veterinary care to planned giving, we're happy to be your resource.
For 75 years, the Guide Dog Foundation has trained and placed guide and service dogs to provide independence, enhanced mobility, and companionship to people who are blind, have low vision, or who have other special needs. The Foundation is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization that relies on contributions from generous individuals, corporations, service clubs, and foundations to fund its mission to serve people with disabilities. It costs over $50,000 to breed, raise, train, and place one assistance dog, but the Guide Dog Foundation provides its services completely free of charge to the individual.
