It’s More Than Puppy Love

Monday, November 6th, 2017

Guide Dogs of America is extremely fortunate to have, and is grateful for, our puppy raisers, a dedicated group of 200-plus volunteers actively raising puppies at any given time. In addition, the many more volunteers who have previously raised one or several puppies and those volunteers who are waiting to welcome home their first GDA puppy. The question most often asked of puppy raisers is, “How can you give him/her up?”
