Clancy the Seeing-Eye Puppy

Wayne Lions Club is participating in the Pennies for Puppies Program, and is now the sponsor of Clancy, a loveable Chocolate Lab.  Clancy will spend 12 to 14 months living with a family as part of The Seeing Eye's Puppy Raising Program.  Then, he will return to The Seeing Eye for formal training as a seeing eye dog.  If he completes the program successfully, he will be matched with a person who is blind, and they will train to work as partners.

"Surely you will find kind people everywhere ready to help you when they know that you...bring help to people who wait in darkness for a friend to guide their feet into pathways of usefulness."

- Helen Keller
