Sponsor a puppy

Every young dog that joins our training program has the chance to change a life. As the sponsor of a puppy, you give hope and opportunity, independence and joy to Tasmanians and their families living with low vision, disability and illness. The dedication and energy invested in the training of each puppy, along with the comprehensive matching process, ensures each puppy goes to a person most suited to them.

A Dog Sponsor plays an important role in the journey from puppy to Guide or Assistance Dog. We offer a number of different sponsorship opportunities with a range of benefits that will help you keep up-to-date and involved in the journey of a very special puppy into a working dog that will change a life.
