Guide Dogs – Sponsor a Puppy – #GuideDogs

Did you know that every hour, another person in the UK goes blind? This means that there is a huge need to train more guide dog puppies.

Just like Jazz…

Jazz – she was named Guide Dog of the Year in 2013 for saving Emma, Owen and Emma’s other son, eight-year-old Luke. The trio were stood with Jazz at a crossing when Jazz suddenly moved back, taking the three with her. Moments later, a lorry mounted the kerb where they had just been standing. Jazz has transformed the lives of Emma and her family, allowing Emma to be the mum she wants to be for her young sons.

Guide Dogs are creating a new TV add and Jazz and Emma will star in it. It is important to increase awareness about the guide dogs, their role in people’s lives and impact they actually make.

Please check out this new TV advert. What do you think?

If you think you can spare just a few pounds a month you can sponsor a puppy from just £1 a week. You will receive regular Pupdates, so you can follow your puppy’s journey to becoming a life-changing companion for a blind or partially sighted person. This way you can really make a difference.

To sponsor a puppy please visit Guide Dogs UK.

You can also like them on Facebook and follow on Twitter.

and please share… to show that you care!

  1. A good friend of mine got her first guide dog a couple of weeks ago and I got to meet her today. It’s going to make a major difference in my friend’s life.

  2. As a kid, I used to collect annually for the Guide Dogs Association with my wonderful German Shepherd. He got presented with a medal for the efforts. People used to pass a hand in front of my face to see if I was really blind. I would tell them no, but that my dog led me nevertheless. It was true – in the wild coastal countryside he was a wonderful pathfinder.

  3. My husband has Glaucoma with optic nerve damage. It’s well controlled at present but we face the issue constantly as to whether his sight will deteriorate or whether he will lose it eventually. Very scary. Guide dogs are amazing – such a worthwhile charity and previously popular, but one often neglected today,

I love all comments :-)
