$10 Donation to Guide Dogs for the Blind
The Issue: Guide Dogs Trained to Lead Human Partners
Guide Dogs for the Blind nurtures puppies from birth as they learn to be guide dogs. From their first weeks spent playing with socializers, they age and work with a human partner, completing thousands of hours of training. Every year, more than 850 puppies travel to volunteer homes to begin training. From this group, an average of 350 graduate into guide dogs, which are paired with blind or visually impaired people to aid them in their daily lives.
The Campaign: Transporting Puppies to Be Trained
If 40 people donate $10 to this Grassroots campaign, then Guide Dogs for the Blind can transport two puppies to be trained as guide dogs. Puppy trucks deliver the dogs to volunteer puppy-raising families in nine western states and pick them up again—14 to 18 months later—when they are ready for formal training at Guide Dogs’ facility. Each additional $200 raised will provide transportation for another puppy.
100% of donations go directly to Guide Dogs for the Blind. Donations are automatically applied. Must provide full name at checkout. See Grassroots FAQs that apply to this campaign.
