Why Sponsor a Puppy?

Imagine if everyday tasks were so challenging or physically demanding they affected your quality of life. That is the reality for so many of the individuals and families who ask us for help. A quarter of disabled people say they do not frequently have choice and control over their daily lives; when to get dressed, when to go out, when to do the everyday things that we all take for granted. Parents with an autistic child have been proven to have stress levels comparable to soldiers in armed combat.

Now imagine if this adorable puppy could become a specially trained four-legged friend to restore your, or your family’s, independence.

How your contribution will help

We currently have around 260 working assistance dogs across the UK, but every year we receive over 5,000 enquiries from people who hope an Assistance dog, Community Dog or Family Dog can change their life. The demand for our services is so high and, quite simply, we can’t help as many people as we would like to without more funding. Your regular gift will help:

  • Support the puppies that come into our programme
  • Provide everything our puppies need from food, collars and leads, to toys and puppy classes, to healthcare and insurance
  • Extend our services to more areas

What you get as a sponsor:

As a sponsor, you’ll get a unique insight into your special pup’s training and follow their amazing journey to becoming a life-changing dog. You could even sponsor a puppy as a gift for a loved one.
