>                  Dear Fellow Guide Dog Handlers,
>                  Thank you all for the incredible response to The Seeing 
> Eye’s advocacy survey. In less than five days, we have received nearly 500 
> responses from around the United States and Canada. I’m pleased with the 
> support we’ve received so far and would like to urge those who have not 
> taken the survey to participate. Don’t forget, it is open to all guide dog 
> users in the U.S. and Canada. Those who take the survey before January 7, 
> 2011, will be entered into a raffle to win a $100 gift card.
>
>                  If you have started the survey and saved it to return 
> later, please access the survey using the link you received in survey 
> gizmo’s email. If you have not yet taken the survey, please visit 
> http://alturl.com/a5kcg or call 1-800-539-4425 and ask for extension 1520.
>                  For your convenience, I have included my original email 
> about the survey, which explains why your participation is so important 
> and the impact we hope the results of this survey will make.

>
>                  Dear Fellow Guide Dog Handlers,
>
>                  One of the biggest dangers we face as we travel with our 
> guide dogs is attacks or interference from aggressive dogs. In an attempt 
> to help increase awareness of this problem and the importance of 
> responsible dog ownership for the pet owning public, The Seeing Eye has 
> launched a survey across the U.S. and Canada that will take an in-depth 
> look at dog attacks and interference.
>
>                  The survey is open to all guide dog handlers in the 
> United States and Canada and we will share our summary results upon 
> request. We’re using an online service that we know to be user friendly 
> for screen readers, so we strongly encourage you to participate and tell 
> any other guide dog users you know about this opportunity by forwarding 
> this email or sharing the call-in number.
>
>                  It’s very important that we get responses from people who 
> have not encountered problems with other dogs as well as those who have, 
> no matter which school their dogs are from. The data we collect from the 
> survey will be essential in making our case with law enforcement and 
> animal control officers as well as with legislators as we urge them to 
> enact or strengthen laws to protect guide dog teams. The survey will take 
> between 5 to 20 minutes depending on your answers. You may access the 
> survey at the following link: http://alturl.com/a5kcg
>
>                  For those of you who can't or don't want to take the 
> survey online, you can call The Seeing Eye's main number, 800-539-4425, 
> and ask for extension 1520. You will be asked to leave your name and phone 
> number, and a volunteer will call you to conduct the survey by telephone. 
> The preferred method though is to take the survey online, so I ask you to 
> utilize that method if at all possible.
>
>                  All those who respond by Friday, January 7, 2011, will be 
> entered in a raffle to win a $100 gift card.
>
>                  Thank you all, in advance, for helping us to better 
> understand the scope of the issue  and to work toward a solution to dog 
> interference and dog attacks.
