About Us

Guide Dogs of the Desert provides mobility, companionship and independence for the blind with custom trained guide dogs.

Founded in 1972, Guide Dogs of the Desert adheres to the premise that every legally blind person should have the opportunity to utilize a guide dog, including those with multiple disabilities. Because of this commitment, class sizes are small and focus on the individual needs of each client.

Many students lost their sight at birth, through a life altering accident, or have progressive eye diseases. Acquiring a guide dog can be life changing, providing a renewed sense of freedom and confidence, and the ability to partake in everyday activities that many take for granted.

All of the above is provided at NO COST to the students we serve.
Guide Dogs of the Desert is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit corporation.
