At Leader Dogs for the Blind we believe that everyone deserves a life of independence and mobility. All of our services are provided free of charge to our clients, including travel in the U.S. and Canada, room and board, equipment and training. This means that no one is excluded from living their most fulfilling life due to lack of funds.

We are 100% philanthropically funded by individual donors, Lions clubs, corporate partners and foundations. We receive no government or insurance company support. Simply put, we could not provide over one million days of independence each year without the immense generosity of our supporters.

Our programs are designed to provide our clients with the tools and training to reintroduce them to a life of confidence, safety and independence. Through our full-range of programs—Guide DogOrientation & Mobility (using a white cane) and Teen Summer Camp—we meet the mobility needs of our clients at every stage of their lives.

We are looking for volunteer puppy raisers and breeding dog hosts.

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.

Hosting a breeding dog is a unique volunteer opportunity that invites you to bring a mom or dad dog into your family for the length of their breeding career—and beyond! Once your breeding mom or dad retires, they become a permanent member of your family.

We offer free, online info sessions for those interested in these opportunities.

For more information, please visit or reach our volunteer engagement department at 888-777-5332.

PSA :30 Radio Spot Available:

Please include our PSA audio file in your airplay rotation so we can reach a greater number of people. This will allow us to recruit more Puppy Raisers and Breeding Mom Hosts, creating more furry partners to support the visually impaired.
