The Seeing Eye, North America’s first guide dog school, was incorporated on this date at Nashville, TN. The Seeing Eye was the first program in the US that enabled people with disabilities to be full participants in society. Its mission is to enhance the independence, self-confidence and dignity of people who are blind through the use of Seeing Eye dogs. Since its founding, the Seeing Eye has matched more than 13,000 specially bred dogs with blind people from the US and Canada.
