Join us as The Seeing Eye
organization provides an overview of the work they do including their history, breeding, puppy raising, and training programs. Discover the joys, rewards, and hard work of raising a puppy in The Seeing Eye's puppy raising program, learn how The Seeing Eye matches dogs to potential owners, and more!
The Seeing Eye is a guide dog nonprofit with a mission to enhance the independence, dignity, and self-confidence of blind people through the use of Seeing Eye dogs. In pursuit of this mission, The Seeing Eye: breeds and raises puppies to become seeing eye dogs; trains seeing eye dogs to guide blind people; instructs blind people in the proper use, handling, and care of the dogs; conducts and supports research on canine health and development.
An important part of The Seeing Eye’s outreach is the Pennies for Puppies / Dollars for Dogs program. We hope the individuals, groups, and organizations we visit will recognize the good work The Seeing Eye does and help support it in some way, either monetarily, or through in-kind donations (dog food, Milk Bones, chew toys, and old towels). All monetary donations go toward The Seeing Eye’s breeding, puppy raising, and training activities. The in-kind donations, of course, go directly to the dogs in our kennels.
**This event will take place in-person at the Woodbridge Main Library**
