Personal Message:

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.

The third guide dog puppy I raised was McIntosh.  When she was 12 weeks old, we made a new friend, Becky, who was blind.  After speaking with us, Becky decided to apply for a guide dog.  The application process is very long as they want to arrange a near perfect match.  A year and half later, imagine my surprise when Becky was matched with McIntosh!  That was in 2009.  Mac retired two years ago and lived the life of luxury.  Becky went back to SEGD and trained with another dog at no cost to her.  Sadly, Mac passed away this year.  Your donations will help other applicants receive the gift of mobility, independence, and confidence.  SSoutheastern received no government funding, but relies soley on donations. We also provide service dogs to veterans with PTSD.  

Thanks in advance for helping me fund raise for this fantastic organization!  

P.S. Help break a World Record! At this year’s Walkathon, Southeastern Guide Dogs will attempt to break an existing World Record 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!
