Guide dog puppy presentation set for July 18

Jul 07, 2018

Lincolnville — Lincolnville Community Library will host Carol Rogers of Lincolnville Wednesday, July 18, at 7 p.m. With pup in tow, Rogers will discuss the challenges and joys of raising puppies for Guiding Eyes for the Blind (guidingeyes.org), an organization that provides seeing eye dogs for the blind.

Rogers will share her experiences fostering pups specially chosen by the program for early foundational training. “Raisers” nurture these puppies, patiently teaching basic skills and providing many varied public outings.

After 12 to 16 months, well-socialized, young adult dogs are returned to Guiding Eyes to begin their guide dog training in earnest.

Lincolnville Community Library is located at 208 Main St. For more information, call 706-3896 or email questions@lincolnvillelibrary.org.
