Guiding Eyes for the Blind
Who We Are
Welcome to the Dominion Region of Guiding Eyes for the Blind. Our headquarters is in the homes and lives of hundreds of volunteers from across the Washington, D.C. metro area including Alexandria, Arlington, and Fairfax. We are a pack of volunteers who have found joy, fulfillment and satisfaction in giving of our time and resources to Guiding Eyes for the Blind.
Our Puppy Raisers come from all walks of life, but they share one common goal – offering greater independence and dignity to blind and visually impaired people by providing them with an exceptional guide dog.
As Puppy Raisers, individuals and families receive support and guidance from the staff of Guiding Eyes on all puppy-related matters, and must attend regular meetings where staff monitor the puppies health and progress.
A commitment to raising a guide puppy should involve the whole family. Everyone’s enthusiasm and participation helps to further ensure a rewarding and successful career as a guide dog.
