Make futures brighter as you invest in the power of extraordinary dogs, transforming lives.

You can transform lives.

When you support our educational scholarships, you open doors of opportunity for our dogs and the people who need them. You invest in their future and give back to our community.

Perhaps you’d like to esteem your family name or remember a beloved pet. Establishing a named scholarship at the sustaining or endowment levels provides a unique opportunity to pay it forward while honoring the memories and family. Our scholarships help Southeastern Guide Dogs offer all of our guide dogs and service dogs at absolutely no cost to recipients. These dogs change the world for people with visual impairments and veterans, and with your help, we can do more.
