Update: Mira has suffered serious financial setback due to the COVID crisis. Their fundraising activities had to be cancelled. The losses are enormous. More than ever donations are important. Every little but helps.

The Mira Foundation breeds and trains seeing-eye dogs, assistance dogs and therapy dogs for children with autism and related disorders. Their most recent project pairs their dogs with people with Alzheimers.

Favored breeds are the Bernese Mountain dog, Labradors and the Labernese, Bernese-Labrador cross developed by Mira founder, Eric St-Pierre.

Most importantly Mira provides their dogs to people who need them for free, and these dogs change people’s lives.

I feel strongly about giving back, I love animals, I try to keep it local, and Mira dogs are simply amazing. That’s why I support them. And if you feel like doing that too, click the link above then the heart next to the puppies. Thanks.
