My latest charity project combines two of my passions. Helping blind individuals and my love of dogs! Freedom Guide Dogs is a wonderful organization that helped a blind friend of mine with his guide dog training. Through my friend and then a long conversation with the founder of the organization, I am determined to help their wonderful mission!
Freedom Guide Dogs for the Blind was started by husband and wife team, Eric & Sharon Loori, over 25 years ago! In addition to running a non-profit serving the blind and visually impaired, they are raising three children, including two with Downs Syndrome, one of which they adopted. Their state-of-the-art kennel facility has all the amenities to make our guide dogs as comfortable as possible, and is efficiently structured for the training staff. The Training Center offers heated floors, individual drinking fountains, grooming room and barn curtain windows which allow for proper air circulation and also protection from inclement weather. There are also indoor and outdoor runs so the dogs can get plenty of exercise.
Their puppy enrichment center offers an array of tools to ensure a high level of growth and development during the first few weeks of puppy life. Equipped with heated floors and barn curtain windows (like the kennel), the Puppy Enrichment Center has ample space used for training and socializing the puppies. This is key in the early development stages for guide dogs.
I turn to you, my wonderful, caring friends to help me by donating what you can to this fundraising page. Every day is so precious to me. Join me & let’s help make some great days ahead for those in need!
I love you!
