Meet the puppies

The J litter (Joyful, June-Lorraine, Juno, Jade, Jasper, Jelena and Juliet) need your support to have the best possible chance of becoming life-changing Guide Dogs and assist people with low vision or blindness. It takes over 2 years to raise and train pups into Guide Dogs – a journey only made possible by the support by people like you. Which puppy will you follow on its journey to becoming a Guide Dog?

How you help Give a gift that keeps on giving, growing, playing, learning, loving, cuddling, and eventually graduating!

Pleased to meet you, pups!

As a Puppy Pal, your contribution creates value immediately—puppy training starts just after birth in the nursery. You get to see the very first glimpses of the puppies you sponsor. You have the chance to name the puppies, and attend an exclusive ‘Meet the Pups’ event where you can play and cuddle to your heart’s content.

Support for lots of learning.

At around age 1, puppies start learning the sights, sounds, and smells they’ll encounter when they grow up as Guide Dogs. During two years of training, puppies rely on your generous support for vet care, vaccinations, food, toys, and ongoing learning. You’ll get regular updates on how your litter is progressing.

All grown up and graduated—thanks to you!

If puppies do well in early training, they graduate to the next stage: working one-on-one with an instructor and wearing a special Guide Dog harness. Harnesses are purchased with your contributions as a Puppy Pal. At the end of training, our Guide Dogs will be paired to someone with low vision in a life-changing partnership.
