Special help for special dogs

Guide Dog Users, Inc. (GDUI), is concerned for the ongoing care and health of guide dogs who have led their blind companions to safety after Hurricane Katrina. The non-profit organization, comprised mainly of people who are blind, has set up a disaster fund specifically for  guide dog handlers from the Gulf Shore who need items for their dogs.

Financial donations can be made by calling the GDUI number toll-free, 1-888-858-1008, and leaving a phone number on the answering machine. A GDUI representative will phone you back to take your credit card information or give you details on where to mail checks.

More information is available on the group's Web site.
