We need your help!

Our iconic Guide Dogs are the furry faces of our organisation, but did you know we do a lot more than just train Guide Dogs?

We provide a wide range of vital services to help Queenslanders who are blind or vision impaired live life the way they want to. With only 10% government funding, we rely on the support of people like you to ensure everyone can enjoy the freedom and independence we all deserve.

The journey of a Guide Dog from puppy to retirement

With my Guide Dog ‘Hollie’ I feel more confident, I feel free, I feel independent and it just feels like there are so many more possibilities in my life now.

Thanks to generous supporters like you, we were able to match 23 year old Ebony with Guide Dog ‘Hollie’ and create an incredible partnership that changed both of their lives forever. But there are still many more Queenslanders waiting to experience a brighter future with a Guide Dog by their side.

Behind every great Guide Dog, is an
even greater team of supporters

From the moment they are born, a promising puppy needs love, time, dedication and financial support. You can help future Guide Dogs have the best chance of becoming life-changing companions for Queenslanders in need.

Your support changes the lives of many Queenslanders

Tania and Kyle’s Story

My instructor teaches me to do all kinds of things, like catch public transport and get around the shops with my friends. We talk about the goals I’ve set for myself and then focus on trying to achieve them.

Bec’s Story

It’s scary to go outside with barely any vision because your imagination just goes into overdrive. I spoke to some counsellors through Guide Dogs and gradually as my confidence and knowledge of the routes I was taking grew, that anxiety went away.

“My Guide Dog ‘Libby’ makes difficult tasks so much easier. One of our most special moments together was when she helped me get around the Mater Hospital on my own while my wife had our baby.”
