In Mexico, visual disability occupies the second most frequent place with 2,519,295 people. When a person is blind or of low vision and exercises their autonomy, they face moving in broken, discontinuous streets or with holes, with street stands and sewers discovered with the risk of accident. This population have found in dogs an excellent alternative to improve their mobility, giving security and speed to their displacement than with the use of a white cane.
We raise, educate, train dogs of labrador race for their excellent temperament to grant them as guide dogs to people with visual disabilities. We provide training in the handling of the guide dog, monitoring and veterinary care during the work time of the dog at no cost to the user. We promote a culture of inclusion and human rights for people with disabilities and influence the elaboration of public policies that avoid discrimination in this population.
The project will annually donate 20 guide dogs to people with visual disabilities, which will allow them to improve their mobility, independence and self-esteem to achieve their social inclusion.
