Southeastern Guide Dogs

Southeastern Guide Dogs Center is filled with goodies for dogs and humans.  All the proceeds from sales go to raising and training the guide dogs for visually impaired.  This special place’s mission is larger than life:  “to create and nurture a partnership between a visually impaired individual and a guide dog, facilitating life’s journey with mobility, independence and dignity.”  It creates a major difference in people’s and loving dog’s life.  These highly trained dogs assist veterans with disabilities, give therapy in military hospitals, provide companionship for visually impaired children, work as public service dogs or as ambassador dogs in hospitals, nursing homes, hospices and schools.  There is even a program Tuesdays and Fridays 2:00-3:00 pm, where children can read to the dogs.  It helps children with their reading skills, and it is free.

You may notice volunteers training young dogs to be guides around the town.  The dogs learn over 40 commands, navigate streets with obstacles, beaches, stairs and elevators, malls, public transportation, airports and more.

Southeastern Guide Dogs is non-profit organization, so they always look for volunteers.  100% of their expenses are paid by private donations, so the highly trained dogs can go to loving homes free of charge.

The main campus and park where the dogs are being trained and where students learn is located on 4210 77th Street, Palmetto, FL 34221.
