Guide Dogs WA
Guide Dogs enable extraordinary transformation in the lives of people living with blindness and vision impairment. It is the independence and pure joy offered by these dogs to our clients that keeps us going.
Guide Dogs not only enhance mobility, independence and quality of life for people living with blindness or vision impairment, but they provide companionship and inclusion in the community.
“Receiving my Guide Dog, Freya, has improved my life dramatically. We are a team. Freya has helped me gain self-confidence to travel alone to familiar spaces as well as explore new places.” – Wendy with Guide Dog Freya
It costs more than $35,000 and takes 2 years to train each Guide Dog, and we rely on the generosity of the community, individuals, families and businesses to fund our Guide Dog program.
To ensure fair access for all, Guide Dogs are provided free of charge to people who are blind or vision impaired.
Your sup-PAW-t ensures that more West Australians living with blindness or vision impairment are able to receive the life-changing gift of a Guide Dog.
Whether you choose to support us by donating money or fundraising on our behalf, every gift is significant and makes a difference. Thank you!
