Letter to Supporters (PDF)

Guide Dogs of the Desert provides custom trained guide dogs for the blind, and for those with special needs, for safe mobility, companionship, and independence.

Founded 45 years ago, Guide Dogs of the Desert adheres to the premise that every legally blind person should have the opportunity to utilize a guide dog, including those with multiple disabilities.  Because of this commitment, class sizes are small and focus on the individual needs of each client.

Many clients lost their sight at birth, through a life altering accident, or have progressive eye diseases. Acquiring a guide dog can be life changing, providing a renewed sense of freedom and confidence, and the ability to partake in everyday activities that many take for granted.

All of the above is provided at NO COST to the clients we serve.

Guide Dogs of the Desert is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit corporation.

As a special education teacher, Robert Roach is more than aware of the trials and tribulations life can offer. Robert is newly retired from teaching at La Quinta High School. After years of helping others throughout his career, Robert decided it was time to reach out for help himself.

Robert visited the Milauskas Eye Institute for one of his many optometry appointments and for the first time considered getting a guide dog of his own. “It was at the Milauskas Eye Institute that I first saw all the puppies they sponsored for Guide Dogs of the Desert, and I decided now is the time to get a guide dog.

Robert graduated with the May 2018 Guide Dogs of the Desert Class; he was introduced to his new guide dog Bandit, and his life completely changed “Bandit is nicknamed “Heart Bandit,” because he stole my heart as soon as I met him. Bandit fills the sight gaps and makes me feel whole and confident.

Robert and Bandit’s bond has quickly grown and has even spread to Robert’s horse, Diamond. With the help of Bandit, Robert is able to visit his horse more frequently. There have been new adventures too. Because of Bandit, Robert is now able to travel alone without assistance from family members.

Robert recently went to Texas to visit family. Robert was able to fly to Texas alone with the help of Bandit for the first time–all because of the freedom, confidence, and life-enhancing independence that Bandit, and support from donors like you can provide. Robert said that Bandit was able to navigate through the crowded airport with no problems. “Bandit has been a good model for Guide Dogs of the Desert, he was just awesome on the planes. Special thanks to the puppy raisers and sponsors – I am looking forward to Bandit’s and my many adventures.
