Guiding Eyes for the Blind's Volunteer Puppy Raising Program is seeking volunteers.
Guiding Eyes’ Canine Development Center, located in Patterson, NY, is home to a breeding program for Labrador retriever, golden retriever and German Shepherd dogs that are suited for guide dog work. At between eight and 10 weeks old, the puppies are sent home with volunteers who raise them for 16-18 months, offering time, love and special training so the dogs can learn house manners and be socialized in numerous situations.
Instruction sessions for new puppy raisers will begin soon.
