Leader Dogs for the Blind is a guide dog training school in Michigan founded in 1939 by Lions Club members. Over the decades, the organization has paired more than 14,000 guide dogs with the visually impaired. Blooming Prairie Lions Club member Paul Dale has retinitis pigmentosa, a degenerative eye disease causing vision problems and blindness. Mr. Dale and his Leader Dog, Summit, recently met with a group of fourth graders to discuss how his guide dog helped him overcome vision loss.
"Pretty much every kid in the classroom got to pet her once. Her head was in the air and her tail a wagging."
We invite people living with vision loss to contact the San Diego Center for the Blind. We offer several programs that can help improve your quality of life.
