PARTNEROslo – male yellow Labrador

Tatyana says that she requested a guide dog because she loves animals and understood that this could change her life for the better. 

When she went blind she learned to walk with a white cane but did not like this. She says, “a guide dog is so much more than a stick. Oslo is both my eyes and my therapist.”

Tatyana works for a organisation that helps immigrants from Russia with disabilities to access the services and benefits available to them in Israel.

She was a recipient of help from this organisation, herself when she arrived in Israel from Russia.

She says, “now that I have experienced the benefits of a guide dog I am encouraging other blind people to consider this option too.”

Oslo is both my eyes and my therapist.

A full guide dog partnership costs the Israel Guide Dog Centre £40,000 and our clients nothing, as we give them this service free of charge. To help us provide more trained guide dogs for people like Tatyana please donate today.
