How will my donation make a difference?
More than half a million Australians live with low vision or blindness – you can make sure they are not going through it alone.
Right now, it costs more than $50,000 to breed, raise and train just one working Guide Dog. But with your help, we can train even more life-changing Guide Dogs and ensure anyone who needs a Guide Dog has access to one.
Your regular donations play a vital role in supporting our Guide Dog Program, this includes:
- Training and enrichment equipment
- Maintenance of our kennel facilities
- Veterinary costs
- And expert dog training staff
