We were delighted to support Southeastern Guide Dogs with Grant funds once again.  Our Grant will be used so that one veteran will receive one of their highly trained and loving service dogs.  This scholarship will include not only the placement of one of their service dogs, but also the 11 day on-campus training where veterans learn to work with their dog as a team.  Southeastern Guide Dogs transforms lives by creating and nurturing extraordinary partnerships between people and dogs. They breed, raise, and train elite guide dogs, service dogs, and skilled companion dogs and provide life-changing services for people with vision loss, veterans with disabilities, and children with significant challenges. The organization offers premier dogs and lifetime follow-up services at no cost. Since 1982, they have successfully created thousands of guide and service dog teams throughout the U.S. and currently oversee the well-being of over 1,200 puppies and dogs.
