How easy is it to Sponsor a Guide Dog Puppy?
Very. Simply follow the link of the appropriate Sponsor a Puppy and complete your details online! You'll then be helping to fund the training of a guide dog puppy, until he/she is matched with a future owner.
Am I the only person sponsoring this guide dog puppy?
It costs a great deal of money to train a guide dog puppy, so we wouldn't expect you to fund the total cost by yourself. That's why we operate a co-sponsorship scheme, giving you and other people the opportunity to fund this guide dog puppy's training as well as further areas of our vital work. It's a bit like the puppy having an extended family!
How will I keep in touch with my puppy's progress?
We want to make your guide dog puppy sponsorship a really worthwhile experience. So we'll send you regular photos and Pupdates on how your guide dog puppy is progressing. Plus, when you join, you'll also receive a special photo card of your puppy, a photo album and a certificate in your name as well as an exclusive calendar.
How often will I receive Pupdates about my guide dog puppy?
You will receive six Pupdates every few months, together with a photo showing how your guide dog puppy has grown.
