“The call to confirm I will be getting a guide dog was a very emotional moment. Welcoming Ezra to our family is a day I will never forget.”

Diagnosed with Retinitis Pigmentosa at 15, Dan has no peripheral vision, and very poor vision at night. After using many Blind Low Vision NZ services including Orientation and Mobility, for Dan, a guide dog was a natural next step.

Thanks to supporters like you, Dan’s partnership with his handsome guide dog, Ezra, has completely changed his story.

“For the first time on my vision loss journey, I am not alone. Ezra supports me to walk at my pace, which is amazing. We walk my young sons to school and day care and easily take on unfamiliar routes together.

“Without the generosity of donors, I wouldn’t have a guide dog. Thank you.”
