Memorial Day Weekend Fun – Southeastern Guide Dogs’ Open House
Southeastern Guide Dogs will host a Paws for Patriots™-themed Open House on Saturday, May 28, from 9 a.m. to noon at its beautiful, 23-acre campus in Palmetto. A number of veterans who have received their guide dogs through the Paws for Patriots™ program will be in attendance to tell their stories. Open House visitors will enjoy a guided, walking tour of the Freedom Walk, puppy and dog training kennels. They will learn how guide dogs are trained and the valuable service they provide. Plus, will get an opportunity to experience what it's like to walk blindfolded with a trained dog. The event is free and open to the public!
