This question always makes me smile. In my mind, I never “give up” my puppy. Yes, my puppy will leave me and return to GDA for advanced training. Yes, my puppy will, hopefully, be matched with a blind partner and begin a new life without me. But “give him up?”— It just doesn’t happen!! (more…)

New GDA Video
Guide Dogs of America (GDA) was founded over 60 years ago when a member of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM) was denied acceptance by existing guide dog schools due to his advanced age – he was only 57.
Since then, GDA has graduated over 3,000 teams thanks to the camaraderie, compassion, and generosity of the IAM and its members.
