GDA’s Puppy Raisers Are a Special Breed

Wednesday, October 9th, 2013

At any given time, there are more than 250 GDA puppies-in-training being raised by volunteer puppy raisers throughout Southern and Central California, as well as some parts of Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Colorado and Montana. Puppy raisers range from families with kids, to empty-nesters, from full-time workers, to retirees, and from people with pets, to those who haven’t had a pet in many years. But they all have one thing in common; the desire to raise a puppy that will, hopefully, one day go on to help a blind individual lead a life of greater independence and mobility.
