Why sponsor a puppy?

Every day 250 people start to lose their sight in the UK.

By sponsoring a puppy, you can help give someone with sight loss the freedom to live the life they choose.

There are 2 million people living with sight loss in the UK. 

By 2050 this number is set to double. Sponsor a puppy today to help us provide services to everyone who needs them. 

Your donations are crucial to help us continue our work.

Every penny raised makes a difference to people living with sight loss in the UK.

What other puppy sponsors say...

"I really enjoyed sponsoring Comet and watching him grow. I’m unable to have a dog of my own, and this is the next best thing! It gives me great joy at a small price."

"I have been sponsoring guide dog puppies for about 5 years; Spirit, Marley and now Moose! I love the Pupdates and hearing when they are partnered with their new owners." Sally
