Programs: PAWS FOR INDEPENDENCE partners individuals with visual impairments with professionally trained guide dogs. Our certified trainers provide students with 26 days of individualized instruction at our Palmetto, Florida campus - and lifetime support and follow up. Currently we serve more than 800 active graduates. We provide the guide dogs, equipment, single-room lodging, all meals, outings, instruction and post-graduation support completely free of charge, thanks to the generosity of our important contributors. The average working life of a guide dog is eight years, and the majority of our graduates obtain multiple guide dogs from Southeastern Guide Dogs. The process of developing and serving a successful guide dog team takes an average of ten years (two years of training and eight years of post-graduation services) and approximately $60,000. Paws For Independence, like all programs at Southeastern Guide Dogs, receives no governmental funding. We rely solely on the generosity of people like you.
