Changing lives, one dog at a time.

Our students and alumni walk out the door to freedom, heads high, shoulders back, ready to take on their world. What a difference a dog makes!

 

People with vision loss are young and old, students and professionals, parents and grandparents, husbands and wives, sons and daughters. Some have been blind all their lives; others lose vision unexpectedly, suddenly, and the losses quickly magnify. Loss of vision creates loss of driving, loss of jobs, loss of freedom. Their world can be a very dark place.

Veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) are active duty and retired, men and women, young and old, from all walks of life. The unseen scars of military trauma create losses that quickly magnify. Reclusiveness, depression, anxiety, flashbacks, and hypervigilance become daily battles. Their world, too, can be a very dark place.

And then they meet our dogs, extraordinary guide dogs and service dogs that transform their world with stunning skills and boundless affection.

Our graduates walk out the door to freedom, heads high, shoulders back, confidence soaring. Possibilities multiply and independent travel becomes the new normal. A new best friend offers a steady source of unconditional love. A dog never has a bad day, offering warm hugs, boundless positivity, and skills on command that make a remarkable difference.

Our extraordinary dogs transform lives.
