Our newest partnership with LeaderDogs For The Blind is a great and natural pairing of two organizations who truly want the best for all dogs. Founded by three Detroit-area Lions Clubs members in 1939, Leader Dogs for the Blind empowers people who are blind, visually impaired or Deaf-Blind with skills for a lifetime of independent travel, opening doors that may seem to have closed with the loss of sight. Sometimes, they have dogs that are incredibly intelligent, but not quite right for seeing-eye work. To ensure every dog has the chance to live up to its fullest potential, Leader Dogs transfers some of those dogs to Guardian Angels Medical Service Dogs, where they are given another chance to serve as Service Dogs with a different set of skills. Guardian Angels is proud to have been chosen as one of the partners to the very distinguished and historied Leader Dogs program, and look forward to a long partnership of training incredible dogs, for very special humans.
