Laumont Pays Tribute to Guide Dogs and Truffle Dogs
As part of the “Your Best Company” campaign, Laumont has been collaborating with the Catalan association for the blind and visually impaired, B1B2B3, to raise awareness about the crucial role that dogs play for groups such as the visually impaired or truffle foragers.
For Laumont in particular, dogs are a vital animal in the truffle and mushroom sectors. With their training and powerful sense of smell, they are used to find those prized truffles buried deep beneath the roots of trees.
As a result, Laumont has donated €2,000 to help fund guide dog training and has helped to create a piece of audiovisual content aiming to educate people about the issue and pay tribute to guide dogs and the important role they play.
One of the main faces to feature in the campaign is Alba Morancho, 37, who has suffered from a degenerative sight condition since she was 12 years old. She is a member of B1B2B3 and sees her future guide dog, Buddy, as a genuine treasure. Here you can read an interview that we have done with her for this campaign and where he tells us about his experience and demands for society.
If you want to know more about training guide dogs like Buddy, we have also interviewed Marga Macías, president of IDDT, an entity that works with dogs and trains them to dedicate themselves to specific tasks of assisting people.
At Laumont we want to encourage you to collaborate with the Catalunya B1+B2+B3 Visual Disability Association. On its website b1b2b3.org you can make a donation of the amount you want in its "Donation" web section.
