Alberta Guide Dogs, a division of BC Guide Dogs, changes the lives of individuals (as young as age 13) who are blind or visually-impaired and children with moderate to profound autism (age 3 - 10) and their families. It takes two years and upwards of $35,000 to professionally train and certify one dog, which is provided free of charge to the recipient. With your help, life-changing Guide and Autism Support Dogs can be placed with those who most need them.
