Pups to Partnerships

A life-changing Guide Dogs appeal

You can help change lives

The number of people in the UK living with sight loss is increasing. Today, there are nearly two million people living with sight loss severe enough to have a significant impact on their daily lives.  

Join us this October and help fund the lifetime cost of seven guide dog partnerships, that will give freedom and independence to people living with sight loss. We have set an ambitious target of raising £420,000 in just one month. This sum will fund seven adorable puppies from birth to retirement, on their journey to become life changing guide dogs.

Our appeal puppies; Harry, Prue, Anthony, Declan, Jamie, Sandra and Cookie, are taking their first steps on that journey. As uncoordinated bundles of fluff, they have a lot of learning and growing to do as they begin to explore the world. It will take approximately two years of training before they are ready to support someone with sight loss. 

We need your help to make it happen.

How you can get involved

There are lots of ways you can help us reach our Pups to Partnerships target in October:

We rely on donations to continue our life-changing work. Every pound raised will help make Pups to Partnerships possible. Fund a partnership and change a life.

Donating an hour of your time to join our Pups to Partnerships fundraising collections across the UK, will help us fund life changing services for people with sight loss.
