What do I get as a Puppy Pal?

You will change lives by helping people with low vision or blindness live confidently and independently.

By becoming a Puppy Pal, your tax-deductible gift will give these pups the best possible start on their journey towards becoming Guide Dogs. That’s pretty incredible on its own, but you also will get all kinds of exclusive offers and opportunities too.

How will my donation make a difference?

More than half a million Australians live with low vision or blindness – you can make sure they are not going through it alone.

Right now, it costs more than $50,000 to breed, raise and train just one working Guide Dog. But with your help, we can train even more life-changing Guide Dogs and ensure anyone who needs a Guide Dog has access to one.

Your regular donations play a vital role in supporting our Guide Dog Program, this includes:

  • Training and enrichment equipment
  • Maintenance of our kennel facilities
  • Veterinary costs
  • And expert dog training staff
