Our puppies are learning and growing. We take care of our youngest superheroes from birth to ten weeks.
We care for our superhero guide and service dogs-in-training as they live and learn on our campus. We love dogs!
At our full service, state-of-the-art campus veterinary center, we keep our dogs healthy and well on their pathway to working careers.
Student & Graduate Services
We help people with visual impairments and veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and other disabilities begin as applicants, live and learn here as students, and graduate as part of our family.
Through our culinary and housekeeping, we give our students and staff the gift of delicious meals and a clean, welcoming environment to live and work.
We work behind the scenes handling human resources, volunteer services, IT, and finance, keeping our eyes on the greater mission: transforming lives.
Marketing & Philanthropy
We spread the good news of our life-changing dogs and the people who need them, publicly (marketing) and through one-on-one relationships (philanthropy).
Building & Grounds
Our 33-acre campus, training facilities, and grounds look amazing, and we work hard to keep it that way.
