07 Jan A Quote from Titus Herman, Southeastern Guide Dogs CEO
The Ray Foundation helped Southeastern Guide Dogs build the most comprehensive facilities of any service dog organization in the world, enabling us to provide extraordinary dogs and services to people with vision loss, veterans with disabilities and children with significant challenges. Our dogs provide freedom, confidence and hope to those who cannot see and those who have seen too much. We are grateful to James Ray and the Ray Foundation for playing a key role in our success.

We employ some of the most talented and innovative scientists and trainers in the working-dog industry and operate the most advanced training facilities of any service dog organization in the world.

We rely 100 percent on private donations and receive no government funding.
