Meet future Leader Dog Mission, who is beginning a remarkable career that will fill an urgent need for a person who is blind or visually impaired at no cost to them.
Puppies are constantly learning during their first year of life and volunteer puppy raisers devote a tremendous amount of time, love and energy helping lay the foundation for the puppies to succeed. As one puppy raiser described this tremendous responsibility, “I am humbled and awed by being a part of the process that creates a person-dog team that can give such freedom to someone who is visually impaired.”
Lions Clubs International, founded Leader Dogs for the Blind in 1939 and Lions have been dedicated ambassadors and loyal supporters of the mission since that time. Over 4,900 Lions Clubs both nationally and internationally contribute financially to Leader Dog. Lions identify people in their community who could benefit from Leader Dog’s services, offer assistance to our clients and widely communicate information about our programs throughout their hometowns and districts.
KEEP WATCHING FOR MISSION’S PROGRESS
