Charles may have a regal name, but he’s not one for pomp and circumstance – he’d much rather be running around and getting belly rubs from his adoring subjects!

This is a special chance to sponsor a cockapoo. He’s got big paws to fill, but little Charles is definitely up for the challenge! Show your support and follow his journey by sponsoring Charles as he goes on to #MakeLifePossible for someone one day.



Tessa is like a little ball of sunshine, always curious, endlessly friendly, and ready to play at a moment’s notice!

Tessa is this season’s digital pup! Sponsors of Tessa receive all sponsorship materials by email. We’ve included a few extras including wallpapers to download so you can take Tessa with you on your phone and laptop!

How your support helps

  • Your support will help us train more assistance dogs and give greater independence to physically disabled children and adults or families with an autistic child.
  • Each year we receive enquiries from over 5,000 people asking for us to support them through a specially trained dog.
  • Our assistance dogs make life-changing differences to disabled people helping with practical tasks such as picking up dropped items or opening and closing doors.
  • Partnership with an assistance dog can help to reduce loneliness and improve confidence enabling many people to take on new challenges.

Success story

Labradoodle Iris was part of our ‘Sponsor A Puppy’ programme and is pawsitive proof that a small regular gift can make a big difference!

George and assistance dog Iris

Iris passed through her puppy socialising and training with flying colours and we’re delighted to say that she is now successfully partnered with George.

George has Duchenne muscular dystrophy, a degenerative condition which weakens his muscles and means he is gradually losing his independence.  He says Iris’ affectionate nature has made a big difference.
“At bedtime, she’ll come and lie over me on the bed and she also gives me lots of licks which is really nice,” he says.  “She also helps me by picking things up and helping me off with clothes like my socks and gloves.”
