Let's pair you with a puppy! 

We need dog lovers to provide cuddles and care for our Seeing Eye Dogs puppies on their training journey. With your guidance and support, a Seeing Eye Dogs puppy can grow up to make a life-changing impact for a person who is blind or has low vision. 

Before you join our community of dog-loving volunteers, an information session can let you know what’s involved and answer any questions you have. We also have some FAQs.
