Give the gift of mobility, independence and freedom

Your support will change a Queenslander’s life

Every dollar you donate directly supports Guide Dog Queensland’s services that provide freedom, independence and mobility for Queenslanders who are blind or vision impaired, of all ages.

Guide Dogs Queensland receives less than 10% in Government funding and we rely on the compassion and  generosity of the community to provide our life-changing services.

Thanks to the ongoing support of the community and assistance from government, we provide our services for free to those we help.

Queensland needs more Guide Dogs and we need you! Show your suppawt by donating today so we can raise, train and place more Guide Dogs with Queenslanders in need.

All donations over $2 are tax deductible.

Become a special Puppy Pal

Did you know it costs over $35,000 for every Guide Dog to be trained? That’s an awful lot of doggy treats!

We need your help to raise the next generation of Guide Dogs and the easiest way you can help is to sponsor a litter by becoming part of our exclusive Puppy Pals program!

 

As a Puppy Pal, you’ll receive a paw-fect welcome pack, regular pup-dates on the joys and triumphs of each puppy’s journey and invites to our exclusive Puppy Pals Days.

Over the months, you’ll develop a very special bond with our life-changing pups and get to see firsthand how your suppawt makes a difference.

Puppy Pals Frequently Asked Questions

Who can be a Puppy Pal? Anyone can join, from individuals to organisations and businesses. Puppy Pals sponsorship starts at just $21 a month! A Puppy Pals sponsorship is also the perfect gift for someone you love.

Is my sponsorship tax deductible?  It’s definitely tax deductible and should be included in your tax return.

Does Guide Dogs Queensland receive any government funding for its dogs? We receive limited government funding and rely on the generosity of the community and businesses to pay for our  Guide Dog program. Thanks to the ongoing support of the community and assistance from government, we provide our services for free to those we help.

Can I cancel my sponsorship?  You can, but we’d be very sad to see you go! Just give us a call on 1800 810 122.

Can I visit my litter of puppies? No, Puppy Pals sponsors receive updates on the progress of their litter through the Puppy Pandemonium newsletter. However, you can come along to our Puppy Pals Day and meet some furry faces!

Does every puppy in a litter become a Guide Dog?  No, only the best of the best puppies can become Guide Dogs. While all our pups are bred with great Guide Dog genes, each pup’s personality makes them different with some better suited to other working roles or as companions for people.

Can I name a puppy? You can provide name suggestions for our new litters through our Guide Dogs Queensland Facebook page. Just “Like” our page and keep an eye out for new posts so you can contribute your favourite names for consideration.
