Southeastern Guide Dogs
When people lose vision, it’s easy to lose hope. When veterans lose hope, it’s easy to give up. It’s easy to let the darkness define life instead of living life to its fullest. That’s why Southeastern Guide Dogs develops extraordinary partnerships between dogs and the people who need them, and they offer our dogs and services at no cost, throughout the United States.
