VSP Vision Care, an arm of Rancho Cordova-based VSP Global, on Thursday announced a campaign to help raise, train and place a guide dog with a U.S. military veteran who is blind or has limited vision.

VSP is partnering with America’s VetDogs, a New York-based, nonprofit guide and service dog school that works to meet the needs of veterans with disabilities. There are an estimated 1.5 million veterans whose vision has been impacted by active-duty service.

Through the “Vision to Share” campaign, VSP will donate up to $50,000, which covers the two-year cost of training and placing a guide dog with a military vet. VSP will make a $1 donation every time a person shares the campaign’s video or photos through Facebook, Twitter or e-mail. To participate, go to the “Vision to Share” link at seemuchmore.com.

To date, America’s VetDogs says it has placed more than 300 assistance dogs with veterans with disabilities, at no cost.
