Guide Dogs WA is the only West Australian-based provider of Guide Dog training services in the community. Guide Dogs not only enhance mobility, independence and quality of life for people living with blindness or vision impairment, but they provide companionship and inclusion in the community.
“One word that pops into my head is freedom. Having Ida in my life to take me to where I need to go, just gives me that freedom. I can do it.” – Michael with Guide Dog Ida.
