Puppy Pals The role of a Puppy Pal

By becoming a Puppy Pal and making regular donations, you’ll play an invaluable role in the development of our working dogs. You will also help Victorians with low vision to reconnect with the community and achieve greater independence. That’s no mean feat. Like any significant achievement, it takes effort and resources.

It costs more than $50,000 to breed, raise, maintain and train each puppy to work as a Guide Dog. We are Australia’s largest and most successful breeder and trainer of Guide Dogs.

Guide Dogs Victoria provides more than 70% of the working dogs for Victorians with low vision and our dogs are highly regarded around the world.

Puppy Pals Why your support is essential

If you have ever seen a Guide Dog in action, you will know they are amazing animals. Highly disciplined, skilled and dependable, the dogs offer enhanced quality of life for people with low vision.

Unsurprisingly, their skills require intensive training. Our training never stops. Month in and month out, we prepare new puppies to embark on their journey towards working alongside a person with low vision.

We receive only minimal government funding for our Guide Dog program, which is why your support is so important. You fund the essential training programs that allow these amazing animals to support so many.
