Dear Dr. Piazza:
We welcome your interest and support of our mission. Thank you
so much for your generous donation.
Guide Dogs for the Blind, Inc. was incorporated in May of 1942.
It all began with a dream… the dream of creating the first guide
dog training school on the West Coast. It was a dream shared by
Lois Merrihew and Don Donaldson who volunteered their efforts along
with may others. They recognized the need to help wounded servicemen
who would return from World War II without their sight. They believed
in the potential of dogs to serve as guides for the blind.
We are proud to have provided more than 7,500 dogs to people with
vision loss since 1942. As we continue to improve and expand our
services, we invite you to share with us in our exciting mission
to provide a means of safe, convenient travel. Please call (800)
295-4050 for information about graduation dates or scheduling a
tour of either campuses. You may also visit our web site at wwwguidedogs.com
to learn more about services and how you can become more involved
with the Guide Dog family. Again, thank you for your support.
