Sponsor a guide dog puppy

You can sponsor a puppy direct here through guide dogs for the blind.

There has never been a better way to adopt an animal online.

If you are looking for a meaningful, alternative gift this Christmas to give to friends and family, then sponsoring a guide dog puppy on someone else's behalf is ideal.

At just six weeks old the puppies of the Guide Dogs for the Blind Association are just like any others - playful, mischievous and full of life. But within just 18 months they will become some of the most responsible dogs in the country, fully qualified working guide dogs –the eyes of a visually impaired person.

Guide dogs for the blind have made it possible to sponsor a guidedog puppy as a gift for your friends or family. Not only is it a unique gift idea, but your gift will support a puppy through the ups and downs of its early training and will also help someone have a more independent life forever.

By visiting the website, you can give the sponsorship gift to friends or family, who will then receive a sponsorship gift pack.

The gift pack includes a cuddly toy, sponsorship certificate, sponsorship card, background details of the puppy and information on the specific work undertaken by the Guide Dogs for the Blind Association.
