Wanted: Puppy Raisers & Sitters
Do you love dogs? Want to make a difference in the life of a blind person? Eyes For Others, the Yolo County puppy raising club for Guide Dogs for the Blind is looking for a few good raisers.
No experience is necessary; all training is provided locally by puppy club volunteers. Can't commit 12-14 months to raising a puppy? You might start a puppy for 2-3 months or finish raising a "transfer" pup. Puppy sitters are also needed to assist current raisers. Interested? Contact Julianne at gotjulie@gmail.com for more information.

Guide Dog Graduations
Attending a graduation ceremony at Guide Dogs for the Blind is one of the best ways to get acquainted with the program. Puppy raisers say goodbye to their graduating dogs, and the graduating class members return to their homes and families with new partners by their sides. Graduations are at 1:30 pm with tours on the California campus at either 10:30 am or 12 noon. 2016 Graduation dates in California and Oregon.
