Meet Puppy Raiser Taylor Foster
Taylor Foster is born and raised on Long Island, New York. She attended Stony Brook University on Long Island where she raised two guide dogs for the Guide Dog Foundation.
Taylor always had a passion for animals and lending a hand to those around her. She grew up volunteering at animal shelters and knew her future wouldn’t be complete without animals by her side. When Taylor’s grandmother became legally blind, she saw how deeply it changed her once independent lifestyle and confidence. Knowing what her grandmother had gone through, when she learned about the Foundation she was eager to get involved.
Taylor began volunteering with the Guide Dog Foundation when she turned 18 and has since raised two guide dogs. She is currently raising her third, Vito. Vito is a Labrador/Golden cross that Taylor is ecstatic to raise and train. "He is such a sweet, handsome and brilliant boy who truly loves learning," says Taylor. "I'm so happy to not only be apart of Vito’s journey to becoming a well mannered guide dog, but to also be able share it with the world is very exciting." Taylor wants to show all the love, fun and dedication that goes into raising a guide dog. Be sure to follow along!
