Happy New Year!!
Southeastern Guide Dogs is an AMAZING organization with a simple purpose – to breed, raise, and train smart & loyal guide dogs and provide them at no charge to people who need them. Close your eyes and imagine for just a few minutes that you couldn't leave the house without the help of another person or the use of a white cane. A guide dog means companionship & autonomy for the visually impaired, and with one of these amazing dogs by their side, Southeastern Graduates gain freedom and independence.
As volunteer puppy raisers for Southeastern Guide Dogs we first opened our hearts & home to Finnegan. Now Guide Dog Finnegan officially! Finn was matched last October with a woman from just outside of Atlanta, Georgia! Terri’s vision is being robbed by Retinitis pigmentosa, and Finnegan is there to provide the safety and freedom for her to get out, go places, and do things! We are so proud of our “little” Finn!
Last year around this time we picked up our second pup, Shepster. Although only 10 weeks old when we brought him home, he has matured and developed into a strong and confident dog! Shepster recently returned to the Southeastern Guide Dogs campus to begin his intensive guide dog training. It is such an honor to be involved with this wonderful organization, and being puppy raisers is so rewarding! It is truly remarkable to watch these pups grow and learn over the year, and then even more awesome to see the pups become the ‘eyes’ for someone in need!
We have set an ambitious Walkathon fundraising goal, and your help means a lot to us and to the people whose lives are changed forever because of these incredible dogs. Your donation makes it possible for pups like Finnegan and Shepster to grow into career dogs of the highest caliber.
Please consider supporting us and the Southeastern Guide Dogs mission to raise and train these puppies and create extraordinary dogs, and please forward this to anyone else willing to assist us.
Thank you in advance for your donation and support!!!
