Sponsor a puppy

As a gift or for yourself

Sponsor a gorgeous guide dog puppy from just £1 a week, and watch them grow from an eight-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! After 24 months of training, your puppy will give freedom and independence to someone with sight loss, giving you the chance to sponsor another new recruit!

Choose your puppy from one of the adorable recruits...
