About Us

Six legs, one journey

Guide Dogs Tasmania provides Guide, Therapy and Companion Dogs to Tasmanians living with disability. These amazing dogs change people’s lives, by giving them independence, mobility, safety and companionship.

Guide Dogs enable extraordinary transformation in the lives of people living with blindness and vision impairment. It is the independence and pure joy offered by these dogs to our clients that keeps us going.

We are for Tasmanians

Guide Dogs Tasmania is the only organisation to raise and train puppies right here in the state, with local instructors available to provide ongoing support and aftercare.

We are proud of our history and excited by the future. We have been working together with Puppy Raisers, pups, Guide Dogs and clients for 60 years.

We are a proud member of the Guide Dogs Australia family, voted Australia’s Most Trusted Charity Brand for six consecutive years.

Guide Dogs Tasmania is operated by VisAbility.

VisAbility has a vision for independence and can provide the tools you need to plan and manage your future and provides a range of disability services that enable you to live the life you choose.

We support the NDIS.
