Sponsor a Guide Dog puppy is one of the most rewarding ways to make charitable donations. Instead of wondering if the money you give to an overseas organisation is actually going to reach the people it was intended for, you can actually know your money will help to fund the training of new Guide Dog Puppies which will help a person with sight problems to be able to enjoy their life more and have a better quality of life.
In a really great twist, you’ll get updated (known as “pupdates”) detailing the progress of your puppy as it grows and undergoes its guide dog training. You’ll really feel that you’re playing a role in its development. You’ll even get updates about the newly trained guide dog joining its new owner and helping them navigate their environment. You’ll also get a calendar and photos of the puppy’s progress.
All of the above can be gained from a donation by direct debit of just £5 per month via the Guide Dogs for the Blind charity here in the UK.
