Seeing Eye Charity-
The Seeing Eye mission is to enhance the independence, dignity and self-confidence of people who are blind, through the use of specially trained Seeing Eye® dogs.
The Seeing Eye, Inc. is the oldest guide dog school in the world. People who are blind or visually impaired come from all over the United States and Canada to spend up to a month training with a new Seeing Eye® dog. They range in age from 16 to senior citizens, their home environments may be rural or urban, and they may be homemakers, volunteers, or judges. But they all have this in common: They are motivated by a sense of independence and armed with the knowledge that Seeing Eye® dogs will provide an extra edge to attain success, however they may choose to define it.
The Seeing Eye is a 501(c)3 supported by private donations, foundations, corporations, bequests and other planned gifts. It receives no government funding.
