Call for Puppy Raisers

A puppy just like this one needs you

Become the foundation a puppy needs to grow up to bring freedom, safety and happiness. Your opportunity for a life-changing adventure is also the opportunity someone who is blind is waiting for right now.


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.

A Golden Retriever puppy dreaming of an owner

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.
