Happy HolidaysThank you for your support of Guide Dogs of America's Holiday Fund-A-Need Campaign through your generous donations and by inviting family and friends to join in. Whether you made 1 donation or many, your participation is an invaluable part of our fundraising efforts. Our Puppy, Nursery, Veterinary, Kennel and Student Services Departments - and our dogs - will benefit from your generosity.

Through your generosity, you help provide mobility and independence to visually impaired men and women from across the United States and Canada.

Please join us for our Open House Silent Auction this spring...

We've had so much fun with our past Open House online auctions that we are already getting ready for next year. And, we are collecting donations to make this a fun and exciting event. So, if you'd like to donate travel, entertainment, or sports packages, just let us know at We are in need of tickets to sporting events - the Dodgers, Angels, Kings, Lakers and Clippers come to mind. Or, tickets to an evenings entertainment - a night at the Hollywood Bowl is always popular at the auction. Or, a cabin in the woods that you could make available for a week or weekend. Or... well the list just goes on and on. The more donations we have, the more fun the auction will be. Whether you donate or want to bid on the donations, be sure to check back in with us this spring!

Words of Gratitude from Our Graduates

Guide DogI would like to say thank you to the donors, volunteers, sponsors and, of course, puppy raisers who made it possible for me to honestly have a normal and productive life. In a world that can be so dark at times, you made a light at the end of the path. Thank you. — Mary Reifowitz

Guide DogHow can you thank people who have given your eyesight and your independence back? I thank you and thank God for you and your sacrifice. — John Faitro

Guide DogMy guide dog Da Vinci has made my life of independence a reality again. Only by the help of all those involved with GDA could this have happened and, for that, I will be forever grateful. — Lecretia (Cricket) Patin

Guide DogI am ever so thankful to all those who go the extra mile to contribute their money, time, skills, patience and love to provide marvelous guide dogs such as my Sadie. She allows me great mobility and a lot of laughs. Hats off to all of you! — Donna Matthews

Please Note: This is NOT an auction. Everything in our Holiday Campaign with the exception of the day with a trainer is either "Fund-A-Need", "Sponsorship", or a "Commemorative". Simply put, your donation will be used to purchase items for use by Guide Dogs of America.
