Our partners and supporters
The Blind Foundation is delighted to partner with, and thank, our very special partners. The life changing work we do would not be possible without their support.
Hill’s Pet Nutrition began in 1939 and their brands Prescription Diet™ and Science Diet™ pet foods offer the highest-quality pet nutrition available. The nutritional formulation that became the first product in the Hill’s Prescription diet was formulated for a guide dog Buddy, in the United States.
Today the partnership offers Blind Foundation Guide Dogs nutritional diets from its pet food range to help guide dog puppies perform at their best.
The support from Hill’s Pet Nutrition assures that guide dog puppies get the very best start to their important careers as working guide dogs.
