Every Guide Dogs of the Desert student has a captivating story to share about their vision loss, struggles, and much dependence on others.

Since 1972 because of donors like you, Guide Dogs of the Desert continues to uphold its mission; and our students receive all services – guide dog, 28-days of on-site training, and lifetime support of the team – all at no cost to them.

Sponsors deliver the vital support necessary to change the lives of blind or visually-impaired individuals by providing them with safe mobility and truly life-enhancing independence with a guide dog leading the way.  Please consider becoming a Sponsor and making a difference that goes beyond words!
