Our pups need your support, now more than ever

While much of the world is on hold, here at Guide Dogs we’re busier than ever. We currently have three young litters of pups in our nursery, with another on the way.

The coronavirus crisis has meant we’ve had to cancel a significant portion of our normal fundraising activities and events – a very difficult decision but one we’ve made to ensure the safety of our clients, volunteers, and staff.

We need your help today to reach our $250,000 target to fund the training journeys of these puppies.
