MORE INFO : Guide Dogs of America selectively breed dogs which have the right temperament for guide dogs and service dogs. Labrador retrievers have proven to be the most successful breed but they also use labrador/golden retriever crosses, golden retrievers, and German Shepherd dogs with a variation of breeds helping to fill the different needs of their clients. The breeding dogs in the program live as well-loved family pets in volunteer foster homes. The dogs and their puppies are cared for by a team of vets, volunteers and qualified nursery staff.
Guide Dogs of America was founded in 1948 by Joseph Jones, Sr. with the help of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAMAW). With the need for highly qualified service dogs continuously growing, in January of 2020, Guide Dogs of America (GDA) merged with Tender Loving Canines (TLC). This new single organization operates under the GDA umbrella.
