Wayne Giles lost his vision many years ago and recently received his fourth guide dog from our school. Two years ago, Wayne’s wife decided to sponsor a puppy for her niece Delaney’s birthday. She chose puppy Elsa because Delaney loves the movie Frozen. Delaney loved following Elsa’s progress from Puppy Kindergarten to puppy raising to Canine University and graduation. When Delaney got Elsa’s final Pupdate in the mail, she shouted, “That’s my Uncle Wayne!” There inside her Pupdate was a smiling Wayne with his fourth guide dog, Elsa! Read more in the letter Wayne recently wrote to Southeastern Guide Dogs. https://www.guidedogs.org/blog/sponsor-a-puppy/guide-dog-elsa/ ...

Before our dogs can become fully-fledged guide or service dogs, they first need to grow up a tad. Did you know our puppies spend the first year of their lives with volunteer puppy raisers? On today’s Facebook Live you'll meet two seasoned puppy raisers, find out more about puppy raising and “co-raising” with a friend, and share the excitement as they pick up their new pup! Join us at 1:00 p.m. EST along with 10-time raiser Jenni Scamardo, 6-time raiser Meghan Watson, and one cuddly puppy! ...

Many of the people who apply for one of our dogs isolate themselves and feel isolated by others because of their disability. They often never leave home. Our dogs help their handlers rejoin the world, offering new ways to integrate with their community and improving both their psychological and physical well-being. In Debbie Ciepiela’s case, the health benefits of life with her guide dog, Victoria, are measurable and profound:

“This is what my guide dog did for me," Debbie says. "I could not have done this without Victoria. I was sedentary and afraid to leave the porch prior to obtaining my guide. I was a size 24 at school. My new jeans are a size 12. My A1C reading (blood sugar level indicator of diabetes) was at 11 four years ago. It was down to 5.1 at my last checkup and we are now discussing discontinuing my diabetes and high blood pressure medications!”

Although 60 seconds flies by quickly, producing our newest animated short, “Believe in Hope,” took nearly a year, hundreds of hours, and three different production teams from Palmetto, Florida to Spain and Portugal. So, what does it take to bring a project like this to life? A million little details. A million little things that you may not realize... until now. Come behind the scenes with a little documentary called “Building Hope.”
