The Midcoast Region of Guiding Eyes for the Blind is looking for people to become part of its puppy-raising community. As a puppy raiser, co-raiser, or puppy sitter, volunteers invite a Guiding Eyes puppy into their heart and home for 14 to 16 months. Raisers teach basic skills and socialize the puppies – sitters provide respite on an as-needed basis.

Puppy program volunteers receive ongoing local support every step of the way. Free veterinary care is provided for all pups. For more information, contact Janet Amberger at
