Event Details

Guide Dog Day is about our Clients sharing stories about the difference our dogs have had in their family or community. This will enable us to raise much needed funds and increase awareness of the work we do and advocate for those who are vision impaired and the families of children with autism.

Please find below a list of collections happening in your area.
