Pup to Partner: The 2009 Fidelco Open House-April 18, 2009
The entire Fidelco staff invites you to join us to celebrate International Guide Dog Day at the Fidelco Open House on Saturday, April18, from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. We will take you on a special behind the scenes tour of our modern kennels which are capable of housing 150 dogs. Your tour includes stops at our training area, puppy playground, surgery suite and our dogs' favorite, the Fidelco kitchen!
No tour is complete without a visit to the puppy house where you can watch our puppies at play.
Our foster puppies and guide dog demonstrations will take you on the special journey from pup to partner. Fidelco’s training room offers interactive stations that can be visited at your leisure. You even have the unique opportunity to wear a blindfold and work with one of our incredible Fidelco guide dogs. Like no other, this experience gives you an understanding of what it means to trust a Fidelco guide dog, and to see the world through their eyes.
This is a free, rain or shine event and lunch will be available for purchase. Fidelco’s Open House is guaranteed to leave you in awe of our incredible German shepherds and the freedom and independence they bring to men and women with visual disabilities. We look forward to having you with us!
