Personal Message:

Did you know that Southeastern Guide Dogs breeds, raises, and trains some of the finest guide dogs in the world? A guide dog makes all the difference in the world to a visually impaired person or veteran with PTSD. Just imagine if you or I couldn't leave the house without help! A dog means freedom, independence, and companionship.

This year, we've decided to go big!  We will be sending our very sweet Marvin back to Southeastern to train on May 4th. That day we will be bringing another very special pup home.  We will be raising a pup named Paulie in honor of Paul Cuzzupe who died August 8, 2010 of injuries sustained in Afghanistan, while serving his country.  We have found that whenever we take these pups out, people inevitably ask about their names.  This gives us a wonderful opportunity to keep a soldier's memory alive, In this case, a soldier who was also a son, a brother and, most importantly, a loved one.

We are so pleased that our last pup, Radar, was matched and placed with a veteran! We hope each and every one of our pups is able to change a life.  Your donations have helped Radar and the rest of these future superheroes on their quest for superhero greatness!  

Southeastern Guide Dogs relies 100% on private donations, receives no government funding, and doesn't charge their students a dime for their services.  We want to do what we can to support this amazing organization.

Won't you join Marvin (a future superhero in training) and support Southeastern Guide Dogs in their mission to raise and train these puppies, and provide such a priceless service for service members and their families? I've set an ambitious Walkathon fundraising goal, and your help means a lot to me – and to the matches whose lives are changed forever because of these incredible dogs.

Thanks so much for your help. Your donations make it possible for these puppies to stay healthy and grow into career dogs of the highest caliber!
