For visually impaired individuals, a dog is much more than a friend. Guide dogs are essential for helping their owners complete every-day tasks most people wouldn’t think twice about.
Every day, we work together toward a common and simple mission: to create meaningful connections between exceptional guide dogs and people with vision loss at no cost, so that they can experience all of life’s adventures.
In the U.S. alone, 75,000 more people will become blind or visually impaired each year.
To breed, raise, and train a guide dog is $45,000-$50,000 for the guide dog training. That includes staff, puppy raisers, and helping out the blind individual get connected to a guide dog school.
Our founder, Andrew Crane, created Guiding Paws ICT to bring awareness and raise the funds necessary to give blind and visually impaired individuals their very own guide dog. It’s no small task, but Andrew (being visually impaired himself) is boldly and passionately working with local, state, and national organizations to make his vision a reality.
