Introducing guide dogs in Latvia

Thanks to the EU Social Fund financial support, Latvian Society of the Blind was able to train first three guide dogs for people with visual impairment in Latvia.

According to current estimates, the average expenses of one guide-dog can reach up to LVL 3000/EUR 4268.62 (including training, feeding, veterinary expenses etc.). Although the Society is actively lobbying to include guide-dogs in national policy for social rehabilitation for people with visual impairment and receive state funding to train such guide-dogs, it is already evident, that the state will not be able to cover all the expenses.
