Southeastern Guide Dogs is so totally commited to its true purpose of bringing freedom to individuals with impaired sight. The entire facility is devoted to the care and training of guide dogs. Every staff member has but one purpose, to further the ability of the school to make an individual's life better. When you speak to the individuals that recieve the service dogs you get the sense that a part of their life has been restored. The dogs are amazing also. From the time they are whelped until they are placed with an individual, they are loved and it shows in their expressions. When these dogs become part of a team it is clear that they are more than willing to work for their handler. it is easy to understand the impact this school has when an individual looks at you and says "I was able to walk into Starbuck's today, alone,and buy my own cup of coffee without relying on someone else to take me." What a simple pleasure to be so important. The freedom is priceless.
