Meet Nicholas Olson, an exceptional Southeastern Guide Dogs volunteer for over 20 years! A former Communications Engineer from Texas, he moved to Florida and joined the Lions Club, where he connected with Southeastern Guide Dogs board members. His passion for dogs and helping people led him to us in 2000.

Receiving his first Ambassador Dog ignited his interest in becoming a tour guide for our campus. He soon became a visitor favorite, known for his infectious enthusiasm and in-depth knowledge.

Nicholas has raised both awareness and funds through many Walkathons and countless hours at a booth outside his local Publix.

His commitment to Southeastern Guide Dogs shows the beauty of volunteerism and its incredible impact. Nicholas, thank you for the time and love you have given Southeastern Guide Dogs!

Have you ever wondered what access rights guide dogs and service dogs have in Florida?

Our recent blog post, "Service Dog Access: Know the Rules and Your Rights," breaks down the world of service dogs, explaining what they are, their training requirements, certification criteria, and the access laws that safeguard these canines and their handlers.

We also cover how the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) protects service dog rights, ensuring they have public access and exemptions from "no pets" policies. Whether you have a service dog or you’re an employer or business owner, it’s important to be educated about Florida’s access laws.

After two terrorist attacks struck the Twin Towers, Roselle confidently guided Michael down 78 floors to safety. Our Tampa Area Puppy Raisers sponsored and named a puppy Roselle to commemorate Roselle's courage, loyalty, and bravery.
