Will you give the gift of independence to someone who is blind or visually impaired? By making a donation, have the ability to change someone’s life and allow them to live without boundaries! So what are you waiting for?
With the help from generous donors like yourself, the Guide Dog Foundation is able to provide specially trained guide dogs and a lifetime of support and aftercare for our graduates at absolutely no charge to them.
The Foundation takes pride in being able to offer customized and specially trained guide dogs for every individual who comes to our organization. We pair each student with the dog that’s right for them – and the power of their bond makes even the most ordinary moments extraordinary. Crossing the street independently becomes a moment of liberation. Traveling alone becomes a welcomed adventure. Embracing new experiences becomes an everyday occurrence.
It costs more than $50,000 to breed, raise, train, and place guide dog; but we cannot do this by ourselves. A simple donation, small or large, can change someone’s life. Here’s what your contribution can provide:
$6,000 – covers the first year of life for a puppy-in-training
$2,500 – provides meals prepared by our chef for one 2 week training class
$1,000 – Transportation of puppies to guide dog puppy raisers
$500 – provides travel expenses for an incoming student
$250 – provides vet care and exams
$100 – production of one specially designed leather harness
$50 – feeds one dog to two months
$25 – provides water dishes, a leash and a collar
Donate today and join the Foundation family to help change a life.
