Guiding Eyes for the Blind, a 501©3 non-profit organization, is urgently seeking volunteer puppy raisers. These essential volunteers raise a Guiding Eyes puppy for 12 to 18 months, providing the pup with the love, socialization, house manners, and basic obedience it will need to succeed in guide dog training.
Puppy raising is a great service project to take on as a family to learn about making a positive difference. Youth raisers can also earn the distinguished President’s Volunteer Service Award. No previous dog experience required – Raisers are supported through regional classes and one-on-one training with Guiding Eyes staff. To learn more, visit our website: www.GuidingEyes.org/puppy-raising and email agoodwin@guidingeyes.org.

Many of our raisers get involved because it’s a project that individuals or families can do, while meeting other people who also love dogs and want to help others. Learning life lessons, giving to others, and learning about dogs are among the reasons people are drawn to raising a potential guide dog puppy. Whether it is their first or twentieth puppy, raisers can take pride in knowing they have done something special!
