Guide Dogs for the Blind – Colfax, CA Puppy Raisers are proud to raise guide dog puppies for the largest guide dog school in North America.
Guide Dogs for the Blind (GDB) provides exceptional guide dogs for individuals who are blind or low vision. Volunteer puppy raisers receive a guide dog puppy at approximately eight weeks old, and the pup will return to one of GDB’s campuses for formal training between 15 and 17 months old. We are responsible for teaching the puppies good manners and providing them with comprehensive socialization experiences. Puppy raisers can have other pets in their home and if you are not able to commit to raising a puppy full time, there are still other ways to get involved with our local puppy club, such as puppy sitting. And, GDB’s puppy raising program complements many FFA, 4H, home schooling, high school, and college programs.
Our group meets on the first and second Sundays of every month from 2:00-4:00 pm, and the fourth Wednesday of the month from 5:00-6:00 pm. Our raisers live in Roseville, Granite Bay, Newcastle, Auburn, Grass Valley, and Colfax, so our meetings are held in those towns.
