Leader Dogs for the Blind
While NOT an official STATE project, "Leader Dog" is a well recognized LIONS project. The organization was founded in 1939 by a group of Michigan Lions.  Their goal was to train dogs to lead the blind and to provide facilities and means whereby trained dogs could be matched to a blind master. The nonprofit organization is served by a national board of 30 trustees. The training school and executive offices are located in Rochester, Michigan.   Over ten thousand blind people have become self-sufficient through the use of a Leader Dog. The dormitory stands as a tribute to the many Lions Clubs who have unselfishly given their time and money to  make the Leader Dog School what it is today.  To learn more about us visit our web site at
