Guide Dogs
Sewell Automotive Companies and Sewell Subaru, which market to the LGBT community in Dallas and have on staff openly lesbian sales manager Vicki Gullion, have donated $10,000 to help establish Guide Dogs for the Blind’s first Texas group of guide dog raisers. The Dallas-based group, Lone Star Puppy Raisers, will use Sewell’s donation to help fund the costs of initial training and raising of future guide dogs. “We are thrilled to help bring this very important group to Texas and wanted to help the volunteer families as they get the puppies started on their journey to becoming wonderful service dogs that are beloved companions,” said Chris Chick, general manager of Sewell Subaru. “Both Sewell and Subaru are dedicated to the support of animal organizations and we’re looking forward to a continued partnership with GDB and Lone Star Puppy Raisers.” Chick is pictured with Lone Star Puppy Raisers’ first group of volunteers and their puppies.
