Fidelco Guide Dog Foundation has been pairing vets with guide dogs since 1960; it has received a federal grant to do it again and place two guide dogs with newer disabled vets.
"The Fidelco Guide Dog Foundation has received a federal grant of $106,000 to place two German shepherd guide dogs with disabled service members and veterans.
"The Bloomfield-based group has placed German shepherd guide dogs with military personnel and veterans since its founding in 1960. It says demand is rising, particularly due to traumatic eye injuries from combat in Afghanistan and Iraq."--the Associated Press via The Washington Times
