About the Guide Dog Foundation
1946, the Guide Dog Foundation has trained guide and service dogs that
transform the lives of people who are blind or visually impaired – helping them
to live without boundaries. A guide dog is trained to find and
follow a clear path, maneuver around obstacles and stop at curbs. With a guide
dog by their side, people who are blind or visually impaired gain renewed
independence and enhanced mobility. The cost to breed, raise, train and
place one guide dog is over $50,000. All services are FREE to the
recipient. The Guide Foundation relies on contributions from generous
individuals, corporations, service clubs, foundations and community fundraising
Guide Dog Foundation was the first assistance dog program in the United States
to be accredited by both the International Guide Dog Federation and Assistance
Dogs International. This dual accreditation sets the Foundation
apart from all other assistance dog organizations as they are able to meet each
recipient’s specific needs by custom training and providing assistance dogs
across ALL disabilities.
