Subaru South Tampa is a proud partner of Southeastern Guide Dogs. This organization serves two purposes: to provide the visually impaired with thoroughly trained guide dogs and to provide veterans who have PTSD with service animals. Take a moment to learn about the work that Southeastern Guide Dogs does and how you can team up with Subaru South Tampa to support this noble organization.

Southeastern Guide Dogs: A Vital Mission

Southeastern Guide Dogs adopts, raises, and trains guide and service dogs. We then home guide dogs with our visually impaired neighbors throughout Town N' Country, St. Petersburg, and Tampa. We also provide service animals to veterans who are suffering from PTSD, as well as grieving family members who have lost a loved one in war.

When you donate to Southeastern Guide Dogs, your dollars go towards three things: research, training, and homing. 

  • Research: Southeastern Guide Dogs performs extensive genetic research to determine how to breed the most effective guide and service dogs possible. 
  • Training: All of their dogs receive two years of intensive training before they're homed. 
  • Homing: When we place a highly skilled dog with a visually impaired person, veteran, or grieving family member, they make sure that the right dog is connected with the right person. Their clients spend several weeks at our training facility, so they can train with their new guide dog, and your dollars make this possible.
