Incorporated in 1982, Southeastern Guide Dogs’ mission is to offer free of charge, a unique opportunity to achieve independent travel with safety and dignity to blind men and women, through the use of professionally and humanely trained guide dogs. The steps required to graduate a successful guide dog team require an average of 21 intensive months. Every Southeastern graduate leaves with a promise that they will be provided with a guide dog that meets their changing needs throughout their life. Most guide dog users require three or four guide dogs during their lifetime. Southeastern has placed more than 2,000 guide dogs with the visually impaired since its inception. We currently have guide dog team graduates residing in 36 states and Canada.
