Volunteers making a difference at home.
Southeastern Guide Dogs has cultivated a well-defined program to breed dogs whose temperament, intelligence, and health combine to produce some of the finest guide and service dogs in the world.
To support our breeding program, we partner with selected volunteers who host our breeder dogs in their homes, then return the dogs to campus when needed for breeding and whelping. These breeder host families are an extension of our work here at Southeastern Guide Dogs, and donate time, attention, and helping hands to help us reach our mission.
