Simply visit Sponsor a Puppy and choose one or more of the guide dog puppies available to sponsor and complete your details online! You will then get to watch them grow from a six-week-old bundle of fur to a fully-qualified guide dog. It's a great way to support Guide Dogs, and every puppy's journey is unique.
You can also sponsor a guide dog puppy as a gift for someone special. Simply select the ‘as a gift’ option on the Sponsor a Puppy page. We will send the welcome pack for your loved one to your address so that you can give it to them, after which they will receive regular ‘Pupdates’ about their guide dog puppy’s progress!
We want to make your guide dog puppy sponsorship a worthwhile experience. We'll send you regular photos and updates, which we call Pupdates, on how your guide dog puppy is progressing. Your Pupdates will be sent to you through the post and via email. You’ll also receive regular emails and be able to join your puppy’s exclusive Facebook group to see more photos from your pup’s puppy walker and trainer. Alternatively, you can opt for a paperless journey and only receive ePupdates by calling our helpful Supporter Care team on freephone 0800 953 0113.
You will receive six Pupdates about your guide dog puppy in total - one every four months, usually in February, June and October – together with a photo showing how your guide dog puppy has grown.
Plus, when you join, you'll also receive a special photo card of your guide dog puppy, a photo album, a fridge magnet and a certificate in your name as well as an exclusive calendar every year.
Your sponsorship contribution will help provide independence and freedom for people who are blind or partially sighted. Right now, we'll put your money to use where it is needed most – from paying for puppy food through to funding dog training and covering veterinary bills. You can be certain that it'll make a big difference and be very gratefully received. We rely on donations to continue our life-changing work. Every pound raised makes a difference to people in the UK living with sight loss.
Around 24 months. You will follow your puppy’s journey from their puppy walker’s home to Guide Dogs training school, with a final Pupdate introducing you to your dog’s new owner!
However, the good news is that the story doesn't need to stop there! That's because in your final Pupdate, we will introduce you to another puppy and give you the option to continue following a journey with this new pup.
