A Guiding Eyes airplane ride dropped off future service dogs at their new homes earlier this month as part of a new national partnership that should hopefully continue to spread the goodwill effortwhics.
Guiding Eyes for the Blind and Pilots to the Rescue have recently teamed up, and the benefits to service dogs everywhere will likely be enormous.
That’s where they will get their basic training before returning to the main Guiding Eyes for the Blind campus in New York for Puppy College.
Guiding Eyes airplane ride kicked off a new partnership with transporting service dogs to their new homes.
The flight took off from New Jersey on December 9 from Essex County Airport, which is probably somewhere near Newark, which is not too far from New York City.
There was also a second flight about a week later that transported seven Labrador puppies to Bay Bridge Airport to their puppy raisers located along Maryland’s Eastern Shore.
Guiding Eyes is located about an hour north of New York City, and they breed, raise and train guide dogs, and train visually-impaired humans how to partner in daily life with their guide dog as well, with no costs to students.
Because of this, funding comes from caring patrons and individuals like you.
Pilots to the Rescue was founded around 2015 by friends Michael Schneider and Brian Orter, and they are a volunteer-driven nonprofit that provides transport for animals in need.
