...And with your supPAWt, these pups can also change lives!

From eight weeks to 12 months of age, Guide Dogs Victoria relies on the local community to house, nurture and provide basic training for our very important puppies who will change the lives of some of the most isolated members of our community.  Hugo is just one example of the incredible life changing impact that our Guide Dogs have on our wonderful clients.

Right now, there are many pups at Guide Dogs Victoria who are just starting their journey.  But over the next two years, it will cost $50,000 to raise and train just one of these pups.

Guide Dog puppies

 

Hugo started his journey two years ago, and has just been matched with our client Steve now that he is a fully qualified Guide Dog.  At just ten days old, Hugo’s nurturing began and he quickly learnt about all the fun things in the outside world.  The staff and volunteers at Cute HQ also made sure he was well socialised and gave him lots of challenges to help with his learning and memory.  Hugo was also taught basic manners and obedience in readiness for his puppy raising home, and had many x-rays and eye examinations to ensure that his health was in perfect order.

Like Hugo, these pups will need a collar, food, water bowl, lead, grooming equipment, vaccinations and veterinary care, an orange jacket for recognition in public and of course ongoing training.

Your support will allow Guide Dogs Victoria to provide our pups with everything they need to start their Guide Dog journey and give independence to people living with low vision or blindness – just like Hugo has.
