The Petbarn Foundation and Seeing Eye Dogs

About The Petbarn Foundation

The Petbarn Foundation has been supporting Seeing Eye Dogs since 2014.

During its annual Seeing Eye Dogs Appeal, The Petbarn Foundation encourages its Petbarn and City Farmers communities to lend a helping paw and raise vital funds to help cover the cost of breeding, training and caring for as many Seeing Eye Dogs as possible.

Now in its seventh year, the appeal has already raised more than $4 million. That may seem like a lot of money, but it takes more than $50,000 to train a single Seeing Eye Dog. It is an ongoing process and one that can only continue with the support of The Petbarn Foundation, Petbarn, Greencross Vets, City Farmers, ROYAL CANIN® and the wider Seeing Eye Dogs community.
