Red Puppy Appeal

Volunteers from Hill's collecting during Red Puppy Appeal 2018

We always need volunteer street collectors and coordinators for our Red Puppy Appeal street collection.

Thank you for your interest in volunteering for Blind Low Vision NZ Guide Dogs

Puppy Raisers (Auckland, Waikato and Bay of Plenty Only)

Are you able to give one of our puppies a loving home for 12 to 18 months, before they go onto their formal training?

Taking the puppy everywhere with you will help introduce them to the situations they will face as a guide dog.

You will have full support from our dedicated, experienced staff while the pup is in your care. Food, registration and vet costs for puppies are covered.

Board a Dog (We are not currently accepting boarding applications)

Could you give a guide dog a home for a short time, perhaps from a week to three months?

Sometimes we need a temporary home for a dog. Their Puppy Raiser or Breeding Stock Guardian may be on holiday, or there could be a break before moving on to the next step in training.

Gardening & Property Maintenance (Auckland Only)

Do you love gardening or property maintenance?

Maybe you could transport dogs around Auckland in one of our fleet cars?

With a minimum of 2 hours per week, the possibilities are endless!
