Support our Guide Dog Program
for visually impaired in Portugal
Being young we want to be like everyone else and do what everyone else does and not always have to rely on our parents all the time.
Being visually impaired can make one feel different and isolated. You are in constant need of a helper taking you to meet friends or go to school and all the things a visibly able can do without having to ask someone for help all the time. Pawsitive Assistance Dogs are about to change this.
Karin Holmström Forster and Chairman of Alertalegria – Associacão de Cães de Assistencia Internacional / Association Pawsitive in conjunction with Pawsitive Dogs in Algarve started a guide dog program . She has now trained several guide dogs and assistance dogs both for Portugal and Europe.
