Ivan Siebert loved his four legged friends. The love and loyalty a dog shows is undeniable. Guiding Eyes for the Blind is a non-profit organization that provides seeing eye dogs to the visually impaired free of charge. Guiding Eyes offers a residential program so handlers can be immersed in learning how to coexist with their new friend. Not only can these pups be raised as a guide dog, they can also be raised to help individuals with gait and balance issues, cognitive challenges, and those who are DeafBlind who only use only American Sign Language to communicate.
Direct from their website:
Guiding Eyes for the Blind provides guide dogs to people with vision loss. We are passionate about connecting exceptional dogs with individuals for greater independence.
Guiding Eyes for the Blind is dedicated to creating and supporting life-changing connections. Since our founding by Donald Kauth in 1954, we’ve graduated almost 10,000 teams. We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with all services provided completely free of charge. At Guiding Eyes, we rely upon the contributions of our generous donors to fulfill our mission.
Guiding Eyes is an accredited member of the International Guide Dog Federation (IGDF), the organization that establishes worldwide standards for the breeding and training of guide dogs. We’re proud to support their mission to improve and uphold worldwide standards for the breeding and training of guide dogs. Guiding Eyes also partners with other organizations, to ensure that exceptional dogs who are not suited to guide work, may go on to alternative careers in detection or as service dogs, or are placed in loving homes through our Youth Program or public adoption.
