Eva La Rue and Omar Miller

Eva LaRue and Omar Miller, stars of CSI: Miami are teaming with Dick Van Patten’s Natural Balance Pet Foods®, PETCO® and independent pet stores to celebrate National Guide Dog Month in September and raise money and awareness for guidedog organizations across the country. “We want people to realize that this is more than just a fundraiser for a good cause,” said Miller. “This is really about empowering the visually impaired with the life-changing gift of a guide dog. Guide dogs and training are provided atno cost to qualifi ed applicants who are blind or visually impaired. With 10 million visually impaired people in the US, the demand for guide dogs continues to grow.”

“Every seven minutes someone in America becomes blind or visually impaired,” said LaRue. “Guide dogs are heroes, providing safe mobility, loving companionship and restoring confidence to their handlers.”
