Guiding Eyes for the Blind is an organization that changes lives - one pup at a time!

Did you know:
• That it costs $50,000 to breed, train, and match 1 guide dog and support the team though the lifetime of the dog?
• That GEB creates more than 160 guide dog teams each year?
• That this highly trained dog is provided at no charge to his or her visually impaired partner?

I have been a volunteer puppy raiser for Guiding Eyes since 2010. My family and I have raised 4 dogs for GEB and I am currently finishing up with Kaylie, pup number 5. She leaves me on April 14th to begin her formal training as a guide dog and I hope to begin again with another pup this summer.

Would please consider making a donation to support my Wag-a-Thon, a month-long virtual marathon that I am participating in with Kayla, my Guiding Eyes retired brood this May? Together we will complete an entire marathon all while raising funds and creating awareness for Guiding Eyes for the Blind, a cause that means so much to me.

Guiding Eyes for the Blind changes lives by connecting amazing people with extraordinary dogs. For individuals who are blind or visually impaired, a Guiding Eyes dog means freedom, confidence, and the opportunity to experience all of life's adventures - big and small. From Home Training to Special Needs to Running Guides and more, Guiding Eyes's pioneering programs are individualized to each student. Together, these dogs are paired with just the right student - and both their lives are forever changed.

You can be a part of this life-changing mission by making a donation today!

Thank you for your support!
