Red Puppy Appeal

This is Yates, a guide dog puppy in training. His dream is to one day help restore confidence, independence and freedom to a New Zealander who is blind or has lost their sight.

Before Yates can achieve his dream of becoming a Blind Foundation guide dog, he will need two years of specialist training. This is why Red Puppy Appeal is so crucial.

Will you volunteer a couple of hours for the Red Puppy Appeal street collection on Friday 24 or Saturday 25 March?


We need volunteers who can spend a couple of hours collecting money during our annual street collection. We collect all over New Zealand.


As a local coordinator you will help organise street collectors your area. If you are organised, friendly and approachable, then we need you!
