Naming a puppy in memory
Many supporters use a Tribute Fund to raise the funds needed to name a puppy in memory of their loved one. If you name a guide dog puppy you'll receive personalised updates and photos throughout the special pup’s first year, creating lasting memories.
Naming a puppy and remembering a loved one is a wonderful tribute. It ensures that their spirit, and in many cases their name, lives on in a puppy that is training to become a life-changing guide dog.
Tribute Funds are often set up in order to continue supporting your loved one's favourite charity – carrying on their interest and support in our work and creating a lasting tribute.
Whether it's a person or an animal being remembered through the Fund, your support will help us create more life-changing partnerships. Family and friends can raise funds for, and donate in memory to, the Fund whenever they want, and we can help you commemorate the life of your loved one on special dates and anniversaries.
Please note that any Gift Aid, whilst gratefully received, can’t be counted towards Name a Puppy targets. Not all donations are eligible for Gift Aid to be claimed, and this ensures everyone is raising the same amount.
If you have any questions about naming a puppy in memory of a loved one, or would like to discuss this further, we’d love to hear from you. Please email the team on LEOs@guidedogs.org.uk.
Your support can have an amazing impact on those living with sight loss. Every hour, another person in the UK goes blind. When someone loses their sight we're here to make sure they don't lose their freedom as well.
