Get Your Giving Tuesday Puppy Fix With Live Puppycam
Guiding Eyes for the Blind is a non-profit organization dedicated to making a difference in the lives of people and dogs by creating and supporting connections in the blind and/or visually impaired. Their dogs are bred and trained specifically to be the superb helpers they end up being, and on this Giving Tuesday, you have the unique chance to watch adorable pups-in-training play. Check Kevin, Kingston, Kimber, Keegan, Kelsa, Kathleen and Kit get their super-cute on with their live cam.
From 11:00 am-4:00 pm EST, you can see them ruff and tumble, roll and bumble and basically make you ‘ooohhh’ and ‘awwwww’ all day. And while you’re doing so, consider giving to the organization that provides all services free of charge.
The Guiding Eyes for the Blind facilities are in New York and they offer service dogs free of charge to people all over the country. Since their founding in 1954, over 7,000 guide dog teams have graduated. The trained dogs then offer increased freedom and independence to their humans and the life adventures are priceless.
It costs $50,000 to breed, raise, train and match a guide dog, as well as to support the team as long as the dog is alive, so the folks at IGDF are hoping a little virtual puppy love might encourage some special donations on this Giving Tuesday. You can watch them while you click on various ways to donate on their site, and you can get a sweet puppy fix in the doing so.
