Because of Tootsie


Tootsie's Vision is named after a very special blind dog who was abandoned on our street. Tootsie, a medium-sized, middle-aged multicolored mutt, was suffering from retinal atrophy. Tootsie's sight quickly deteriorated from partial to complete blindness. We adopted  Tootsie and she became a central and joyous part of our family, teaching us the meaning of courage, optimism and determination. In turn, we gave her a fulfilling canine life, despite her limitations.


Tootsie died in March 2015, but she inspired us to create a nonprofit organization in her name, dedicated to improving the lives of blind dogs, helping them find loving permanent homes and ensuring that the are safe, happy and healthy.
