Meet the puppies
Bud, Blossom and Sprout need your support to have the best possible chance of becoming life-changing service dogs. It takes over 2 years to raise, train and transform playful pups into brilliant Guide Dogs and Therapy Dogs - a journey only made possible by the support of people like you. Which puppy will you follow on its journey to becoming a service dog?
Every day, 28 Australians are diagnosed with sight loss, and the tragedy is 3 out of 4 people in NSW and ACT who need a Guide Dog don’t have one. As a Puppy Sponsor, your monthly support will help us reach more people with sight loss and give them freedom and independence.
When you sponsor a puppy, you will support the range of needs of our Guide Dog program. This includes training and enrichment equipment, maintenance of our kennel facilities, veterinary costs, and expert dog training staff.
As a Puppy Sponsor, you will be part of a community following your chosen puppy’s journey to becoming a Guide Dog.
While Puppy Sponsors will be following their chosen puppy’s journey, their donations will contribute to the Guide Dogs program as a whole, supporting all our puppies in their development. Ultimately, the kind donations of Puppy Sponsors provide independence and freedom for people with sight loss.
