Guide Dogs:

  • Celebrating their 25th Anniversary, and graduating over 2,250 student/guide dog teams, Southeastern Guide Dogs success depends entirely on the support of the community. The average cost for the school to train a guide dog is $40,000. A contribution of $2,500 affords the benefactor the reward of naming a guide dog. Volunteers’ efforts are invaluable to everyone involved. To educate children & adults, Jimmy and Rusty make special appearances at Middle/High Schools, and various community centers about his vision impairment and his special relationship with Guide Dog, Rusty
