Southeastern Guide Dogs mission is to create and nurture a partnership between a visually impaired individual and a guide dog, facilitating life's journey with mobility, independence and dignity.

Since 1982, we have provided more than 2,270 professionally and humanely trained guide dogs, at no charge, to people seeking freedom and independence.

Our school operates its own breeding colony, with more than 100 breeder dogs.

Six Breeds: Labradors, Golden Retrievers, Goldadors (Labrador/Golden Retriever mix), Smooth-Coat Collies, Australian Shepherds, Hungarian Vizslas.

Number of dogs currently deployed: more than 1,400, including more than 830 guide dogs and more than 150 Gifted Canines.

Number of puppies currently being raised by volunteers - more than 250

Number of dogs currently in training - more than 100

Southeastern Guide Dogs is funded through the generosity of caring individuals, service organizations, foundations, bequests, corporate support and fund raisers.

Our school receives no government funding. The placement of our guide dogs is provided completely free of charge to the blind or visually impaired recipients we serve.


Your contribution of money and/or time helps us offer guide dogs free of charge to blind individuals.

With the gift of a guide dog, our students are able to contribute to their communities, work on their goals, and accomplish their dreams.
