Downtown Gallery Supports Guide Dogs
Downtown Gallery supports Guide Dogs! We are pleased to announce that in partnership with Guide Dogs Singapore (GDS), we are now a guide dog friendly business. As a retail destination that is all about building communities, we are passionate about making Downtown Gallery a welcoming and meaningful space for all, including the blind and visually impaired.
About Guide Dogs Singapore
Guide Dogs Singapore is a non-profit voluntary welfare organization, holding an Institute of Public Character status. They aim to build an inclusive society where every person who’s blind or visually-impaired is able to achieve their fullest potential by being empowered for independent living. They do so through their services, such as Orientation & Mobility, and Guide Dogs Programme. For more information, you may visit their webpage at www.guidedogs.org.sg.
Who are Guide Dogs
Guide dogs are working dogs, not pets. They are specially bred and trained to serve as a mobility aid to the blind and visually impaired. Being extremely docile, they do not bark, bite, or lick, and will relieve on command. They provide help, safety, and companionship to people with vision impairment. We hope not to deny service to a guide dog user because of his/her guide dog.
