“Everybody can be great…because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.”
Martin Luther King, Jr.
We Love our Puppy Raisers
Puppy Raisers do all the hard work teaching dogs to be social and they provide the foundation that makes a typical dog an amazing guide dog. At OC Guide Dogs our puppy raisers are very special people to us. We honor them as often as we can, as we know, without out their selfish-less great deeds, we would not have the amazing guides we have.
Puppy raisers are the most amazing people in the world. They take in a little puppy, fall in love with him or her, teach it to complete tasks never required of any other dog and then send them away to change a life of a visually impaired or blind person. One can only say that they are angels put on earth to make a difference in someone ones life and they do, each and every day.
Thank You from the OC Guide Dogs, you have changed all of our lives and continue to change lives of others.
