Puppy Raising for Guide Dogs For The Blind


We appreciate the support of the faculty and students of Byron Nelson High School. 



 Lone Star Guide Dog Raisers-Byron Nelson FFA is operated by Guide Dogs for the Blind
and hosted on campus by the Northwest ISD CTE Department and the Byron Nelson AG Science Department.
The program is open to students enrolled in AG Science as an FFA Supervised Agricultural Experience (SAE).
We encourage any student interested in our program to come check us out. However,
because of the commitment of time and resources required to be successful in this program, there is a screening
and acceptance process.

We meet in the AG Science Area or Student Union on the fourth Monday of each school month from 4:15 pm to 6:00 pm.
Our summer hours can be confirmed by checking out our Facebook Page.
