February 2018 – June 2019 - Luxury Suite for Long Island Ducks Game

The Guide Dog Foundation and America’s VetDogs are committed to providing our special dogs free of charge to people across North America with disabilities.  Beginning February 2018 and running through June 2019, our goal is to raise $500,000 to change more lives through the partnership of a guide or service dog.  However, we can’t train and place these dogs on our own  – we need YOUR help!  You can provide life-changing guide and service dogs to those who need them by donating today.
