Your donations will help children like Caitlin

Caitlin was born with congenital glaucoma and underwent almost 50 operations before her fifth birthday.

Caitlin says: “I knew a guide dog could help me be even more confident and independent, but I never expected to gain a best friend as well. Honey puts a smile on my face every day with her puppy eyes and wagging tail. She’s my reason to get out of bed in the morning and have a great day. We’re a perfect match.”
