When Seeing Eye puppies reach the age of 7 or 8 weeks, they are delivered to the homes of volunteer “foster families” who nurture and care for their charges until they are about 16 to 18 months old. Families in New Jersey, eastern Pennsylvania, Delaware, and parts of Maryland and New York, give the dogs abundant affection, teach them basic obedience, and expose them to a variety of social situations they will later encounter as working dogs. Many of these volunteer families have children, while a number of retired adults also volunteer their time for our puppies.
For more information about becoming a puppy raiser, consult the list below and call The Seeing Eye Area Coordinator for your county. You will be invited to a puppy club meeting in your county where you can learn more about the program first-hand. For more information, e-mail the Puppy firstname.lastname@example.org.
Below is a listing of all the counties where we place puppies. Some of the clubs have their own websites, and the links to those also appear below. If you think you might like to be one of those very special people who raise puppies for The Seeing Eye, please call your appropriate representative. We look forward to hearing from you!
