How to apply for a reclassified Guide Dog
Please note: we are currently not accepting any new applications to join the adoption list. Please keep checking back on our Facebook page for details on when the adoption list may re-open.
Due to the exceptionally high standards required to become a Guide Dog or Therapy Dog, we need loving forever homes for the dogs that are not quite suited to these demanding roles. A dog may be made available for adoption because they have not passed certain health or training tests.
The majority of dogs that are available for adoption are aged between 12-16 months old. Dogs in this age group have had a year of puppy training with a volunteer puppy-raiser. Occasionally, there may be a dog available for adoption slightly older or younger than this average age. On very rare occasions, mature dogs—including retired Guide Dogs or Therapy Dogs—may be available for adoption.
