Did you know that Southeastern Guide Dogs breeds, raises, and trains some of the finest guide dogs and service dogs in the world? The puppies are adorable, but to witness these amazing dogs in training is nothing short of miraculous. Thanks to the intelligence and fine training of these dogs, people with vision loss and veterans with disabilities find the freedom, confidence, and independence they need.

When I learned that Southeastern Guide Dogs relies 100% on private donations, receives no government funding, and doesn't charge students and veterans for their services, I knew I wanted to get involved. I volunteer as a puppy raiser and it is incredibly rewarding to raise one of these extraordinary puppies. When I found out that I could help raise funds for Southeastern Guide Dogs too, that's when I decided to participate in their biggest fundraiser of the year, the Walkathon.

I've set an ambitious Walkathon fundraising goal, and your help means a lot to me—and to the people whose lives are changed forever because of these extraordinary dogs. Your donation makes it possible for these puppies to stay healthy and grow into dogs of the highest caliber. These dogs really do make a difference and you can, too. Join me in supporting Southeastern Guide Dogs in its mission to raise and train these puppies and provide such a priceless service. Thank you for your help!

P.S. Help break a World Record! At this year’s Walkathon, Southeastern Guide Dogs will attempt to break an existing World Records title for the largest gathering of dogs wearing bandanas at a single event. We need you! All you have to do is show up with your dog(s), and they will supply the bandanas. Bring your friends and their dogs and help us break a world record!
