Free Veterinary Care for Guide Dogs
For Guide Dogs for the Blind
In 2009, the Hind Foundation granted $12,000 to Guide Dogs for the Blind for veterinary care of Guide Dogs in the San Luis Obispo County area. Through this grant, Guide Dogs for the Blind offers guide dogs and training free-of-charge to blind and visually impaired people throughout the US and Canada. They are funded entirely through private donations.
• Animal Care
The grant provided veterinary care for guide dogs in training so they can go on to provide invaluable assistance to those in need.
"Thank you for your generous gift to help underwrite the veterinary costs of Guide Dogs in San Luis Obispo COunty. Please know that you make a difference to those we serve."
