We are proud to announce that the Gary Sinise Foundation has awarded Leader Dog with a $350,000 grant to support our service of veterans, defenders and first responders who are blind or visually impaired with highly skilled guide dogs. As part of the grant, the Gary Sinise Foundation is sponsoring seven Future Leader Dogs!
Join a Collaboration Event
You're invited to join our Collaboration Events! These are monthly opportunities to discover other organizations within the blindness and low vision field and the services they provide. These free, online events are held the last Wednesday of every month at 3 p.m. EST and are open to anyone.
Host a Leader Dog Mom
Our breeding mom dogs represent the future of Leader Dogs for the Blind and all the guide dogs we match with people who are blind. When you become a breeding host, you ensure that many more people will have the chance to meet the dogs that will change their lives.
Make Everyone Unstoppable
With your help and our expertise, more people can travel safer, easier and with greater freedom than ever before.
Blindness changes everything.
For people who are blind or visually impaired, the loss of sight is only the beginning of a life-changing reality. As the simplest to the most complex everyday tasks become daunting, these individuals often become depressed, anxious and isolated.
Why Leader Dog?
Leader Dog is the answer for thousands of people in critical need of our services. Because we believe every person deserves equal opportunity for independent travel, all of our services are provided at no cost, covering expenses for training, room, and board, and travel to our campus from anywhere in North America.
Make a dream come true.
There’s no doubt what our puppies want to be when they grow up, but they need your help. As a volunteer puppy raiser, you’ll be the foundation a puppy needs to become a Leader Dog. And together, you’ll help someone who is blind or visually impaired live a life of freedom, safety and happiness.
