Sponsor a puppy

Sponsor a future guide dog and help us to provide the love and support that is so crucial during the first year of a puppy’s life. The cost to raise a puppy is $1000, which includes all of their food, toys and immunizations.

In less than two years, these amazing animals will make a profound difference in the life of someone who is visually impaired.
