Guiding Eyes for the Blind to Honor Olympians



Thomas Panek, president and CEO of nonprofit organization Guiding Eyes for the Blind, announced that the organization will name a litter of puppies after distinguished Team USA athletes of the 2018 Winter Olympics.


“Much like every Olympian is at the top of his or her game, all of our Guiding Eyes dogs are elite athletes in their own rights,” said Panek. “Every guide dog in our family brings greater independence and freedom to people with vision loss through best-in-class training and dedication to their work. So in honor of the athletes competing in the 2018 Winter Olympics, we are thrilled to name to name a litter of puppies after Team USA athletes.”


In timing with the Closing Ceremonies, Guiding Eyes will name a newborn litter of pups, born at the Canine Development Center in New York, to correspond with the names of distinguished Olympic athletes from the American Team.
