Your gift will help provide Guide Dogs for generations.
For instance Bob, a retired father of five, and young Caleb, an aspiring Paralympian.
While Bob is looking back on 53 years of a close and supportive relationship with Guide Dogs Victoria…
The eldest of nine children, Bob was born prematurely and with low vision.
“In those days a lot of what you learnt was through talking to people. Today there is much more accessibility to information, especially through technology and computers.”
Bob has been with Guide Dogs Victoria since leaving school at 15.
“Guide Dogs Victoria do what they say they do. It doesn’t matter who you are, you get treated well.”
Over this time Bob has been partnered with seven Guide Dogs. His current Guide Dog, ‘Fella’, has such a caring and protective nature that even Bob’s partner’s cat loves him! When Bob was working in car producing factories, his Guide Dogs kept him safe.
“Guide Dogs are great companions and they make it so much easier, safer and quicker to get out to work, travel and socialise.”
