The Guide Dog Foundation (guidedog.org) and its sister organization, America’s VetDogs (vetdogs.org), were created to provide enhanced mobility and renewed independence to people who are blind or have low vision, veterans, active-duty service members, and first responders with disabilities, with the goal of allowing each recipient to once again live with pride and self-reliance.

“We’re thrilled to have this ongoing relationship with PetQwerks,” says John Miller, president and CEO, Guide Dog Foundation and America’s VetDogs, “Thanks to their generous donation of bones, all of our dogs in our care, from puppies and moms in the nursery to working assistance dogs, have a reliable and safe bone to relieve stress and relax after a day of work.”

Pet Qwerks began with a single toy, the Babble Ball, which remains the company’s flagship today. Its focus has always been on innovation and enriching the lives of pets. While the heart of Pet Qwerks remains in the interactive category, it has become an innovator in the durable dog chew category. The company manufactures its chews in the USA and is an employee-owned and operated company.

For more than 70 years, the Guide Dog Foundation for the Blind has trained and placed guide and service dogs to provide independence, enhanced mobility and companionship to people who are blind, have low vision, or have other special needs. The foundation is a nonprofit serving clients from across the United States and Canada. It relies on contributions from individuals, corporations, service clubs and foundations to fund its mission to serve people with disabilities. It costs over $50,000 to breed, raise, train and place one assistance dog, but the Guide Dog Foundation provides its services completely free of charge to the individual. Its sister organization, America’s VetDogs, trains and provides guide, service, and hearing dogs for disabled veterans and first responders. The Guide Dog Foundation was the first assistance dog school in the United States to be accredited by both the International Guide Dog Federation and Assistance Dogs International.
