Guide Dogs Tasmania’s iconic Collection Dogs are made up of Mini Dogs and the larger, life-size Model Dogs. These dog-shaped collection containers sit in prominent spots in places such as cafes, shops and restaurants.
They help raise much-needed funds and awareness of our Guide Dog program, and you can be assured that every cent you put in counts, and makes a huge difference to the life of Tasmanians living with disability.
Request a Collection Dog for your Business
Businesses can show their support for Guide Dogs Tasmania by allocating a small amount of bench space or floor space to one of our iconic Collection Dogs.
We won’t, under any circumstances, hold your business liable for any Collection Dogs in the unfortunate event of theft. We do encourage businesses to secure the smaller Mini Dogs to the counter, which we can assist with.
The Collection Dog program is simple:
- Put your Collection Dog somewhere your customers can see and reach it, in order to place their loose change in it.
- Guide Dogs Tasmania will add your business to our list, and organise for the regular emptying of your Collection Dog.
- Give your Collection Dog a happy home, and let Guide Dogs Tasmania know if anything goes wrong.
