Red Puppy Appeal

Friday 24th and Saturday 25th March 2017

Thank you to everyone who participated in Red Puppy Appeal this year. The breeding and training of guide dogs wouldn’t be possible without the generous support of people like you.


There are many ways to get involved with Guide Dogs. From puppy walking, to street collecting, every little bit helps.


By taking part in a fundraising event on behalf of guide dogs, you’ll be helping make sure that we can breed and train more guide dogs.

Your donation will help breed and train guide dogs for New Zealanders that need them the most. Thank you for your support!
