GDA Volunteers Pick Up “T,” “V,” W,” and “A” Litters!

Guide Dogs of America’s volunteer puppy raiser families foster our puppies from the age of 7 weeks until the dogs enter formal guide dog training at around 18 months of age. Volunteer puppy raisers recently picked up GDA’s “T,” “V,” “W,” and “A” litters.

GDA’s volunteer puppy raisers open their hearts and homes to our puppies and help us raise the best guide dogs possible. Learn more about GDA’s puppy raising program at http://www.guidedogsofamerica.org/1/programs/puppy-raising/

Interested in supporting our mission to change the lives of those who are blind? GDA is looking for loving homes to raise a puppy of 7 weeks of age until he or she is around 18 months old. If you live in Southern California, we want to hear from you!
