Guide Dogs Tasmania is grateful to Kirsty Pilkington, a Hobart-based photographer who has taken truly magnificent photos of all of our new puppies and graduating dogs since 2009. Her images feature in this website, on most GDT collateral, in all Puppy Love newsletters, and regularly on our Facebook page. Kirsty provides her time and all of the images without fee or restriction. We are always, always blown away by her generosity … and talent.
With the support of Metro Tasmania, we have been able to significantly raise awareness of the access rights of Guide Dogs and their handlers. Through the wrapping of a new Metro bus, in artwork by every student at Campbell Street Primary School, our message “Guide Dogs Can go Anywhere” is getting to thousands of people, in every corner of the greater Hobart region. Thank you Metro, this kind of advocacy wouldn’t be possible without your support.
