Become a Puppy Pal.

You can help our promising puppies become highly skilled Guide Dogs and change lives.

What is a Puppy Pal?

Contribute to the journey of our promising puppies as they work to become Guide Dogs.

A Puppy Pal is a valued supporter who makes regular donations to contribute to the journey of our promising puppies as they work to become Guide Dogs.

When you become a Puppy Pal, you support 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 Pal, you will be part of a community of supporters and dog lovers all following your chosen puppy’s journey to becoming a Guide Dog.

While you closely follow the journey of your chosen puppy, your donations will contribute to the Guide Dogs program as a whole, supporting all our puppies in their development.

Ultimately, your donation goes toward helping people with vision loss live confident and independent lives.
