By sponsoring a puppy, not only will you be providing a priceless gift for that special someone, your donations will be helping change the life of someone who's blind or partially sighted. Guide dog owner, Ella, is partially sighted and has only 10 per cent vision in one of her eyes. Before she had a guide dog, she relied heavily on her family to get out and about - but then she was partnered with sponsored guide dog Sparkle, and all that changed.
"Having Sparkle means that I can pop on the bus to town without needing anyone else with me. I've now got the confidence to go out by myself. I couldn't imagine my life without a guide dog." Ella, guide dog owner.
It's incredible to think that Sparkle was once a six-week-old bundle of fluff, just like Cally, Gismo and Herbie. This Valentine's Day marks Sparkle's second birthday and her sponsors followed her as she's grown up to become the life-changing guide dog she is today.
