At Guide Dogs of America/Tender Loving Canines, the comfort, safety and health of their dogs is a top priority. To improve on those efforts, they are building for the future with a full renovation of their kennel center this year and could use your help.
Guide Dogs of America/Tender Loving Canines currently has 80 runs, a socialization area for puppies, a recreation area for dogs of all ages and an administrative area for the team that cares for these amazing animals. While all these spaces are functional, they are in need of updates and renovation. We have reached out to the experts in the industry for the most state-of-the art technology, and will be focusing on the following improvements:
- New HVAC and air filtration systems.
- UV disinfectant light system
- Updated walls, gates, safety latches and personal storage.
- Sanitized feeding systems.
- Airtight, non-porous epoxy flooring.
- Fresh water and drainage systems.
- Cleaning and waste mechanisms
You can have your name displayed on a kennel or whelping bay you helped build by being a Silver, Gold or Platinum level sponsor. Or you can simply help out by donating to the renovation campaign. No donation is too small, as every little bit will help provide a better kennel space for their life-changing dogs.
Guide Dogs of America is the IAM’s favorite charity. In 2020, GDA completed a merger with Tender Loving Canines, and now provides hardworking service dogs for people who are blind/visually impaired, veterans, children with autism and facilities to become trusted companions that bring confidence, independence and mobility. Their services are provided free of charge to residents in the U.S. and Canada.
