Description

The Guide Dog Foundation for the Blind provides trained dogs for qualified blind persons. The Foundation is a nonprofit organization incorporated under the Membership Corporation Laws of New York. It is supported entirely by voluntary contributions. There is no charge for its service, which includes a guide dog, four weeks of training in the dog's use and care, board and lodging while the student is in residence at the Foundation's training center, transportation costs within the continental U.S., and a follow up program. The Foundation aims to give blind persons better mobility, and to contribute to the rehabilitation progress of able citizens so that they can gain social integration and increased job opportunity for self-sufficiency.
