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 decided to participate in their biggest fundraiser of the year, the Walkathon. Won't you join me in supporting Southeastern Guide Dogs in its mission to raise and train these puppies and provide such a priceless service?

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 change the world for the people who need them.

My husband, Artie, and I have been attending semi-monthly puppy raiser meetings to learn as much as possible about the program, the training regimen, and the wonderful group of current puppy raisers.

Thank you so much for any assistance you can provide to further this worthy cause!

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 Southeastern Guide Dogs will supply the bandanas. Bring your friends and their dogs and help us break a world record!
