News and Events

From time to time, our club takes field trips to get the puppies acclimated to situations and conditions they may later face as guide dogs. We also do demonstrations for the public to explain what The Seeing Eye does and why we are involved in this important task. Click on the tabs to the left for photos of trips and events or on the highlighted items below.

Carlos Taylor, a computer technology specialist at Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana, was recently matched with his third Seeing Eye dog, Ewok. This was the 17,000th successful Seeing Eye partnership since its founding in 1929! Our club has raised over 100 of these dogs!
