Here at SurveyMonkey, there’s been no shortage of amazing speakers who’ve stopped by our office to share their stories. However, the entire office was abuzz when Lynette Kersey, her guide dog Brayden, and three additional puppies in training (along with their trainers) stopped by to tell us more about the amazing organization, Guide Dogs for the Blind.
Founded in 1947, Guide Dogs for the Blind has graduated more than 10,000 teams, pairing the blind or visually impaired with fully trained guide dogs. In addition to the formal trainers, veterinarians, and staff at the schools’ two locations in San Rafael, California and Boring, Oregon–Guide Dogs for the Blind relies on the support of over 1,000 volunteers like puppy trainers, who raise and socialize the puppies before they enter the program.
Our online marketing manager, Melissa, sat down with Lynette to learn a little more about Guide Dogs for the Blind and what people can do to get involved. Take a look:
