Guide Dogs of America


Guide Dogs of America is dedicated to its mission to provide guide dogs and instruction in their use, free of charge, to blind and visually impaired men and women from the United States and Canada so that they may continue to pursue their goals with increased mobility and independence.

“A guide dog partner empowers those who have lost their sight to live their lives to the fullest. We’re grateful for The Fusenot Foundation’s commitment to vastly improving the lives of blind individuals by providing them with guide dogs free of charge.”
