There is little to compare with the life-changing impact of a guide dog – and that’s what Sue has discovered with the arrival of Rylie.

Sue had been on the waiting list for her guide dog for two years before she finally met black lab, Rylie – and fell in love right away. Matched at Christmas time, Sue says Rylie was the best Christmas present of all, and it is all because of you.

“I’ve always loved dogs, and to have this match with Rylie has absolutely completed my journey – it’s the icing on the cake,” said Sue.

“Since getting Rylie, I’ve gone from strength to strength with confidence. It’s brilliant. I wouldn’t be able to do what I do without Blind Low Vision NZ.”

Every donation you make has made a direct impact, whether by supporting people to increase their independence, learn new skills, gain confidence in completing essential daily tasks, or to finally be matched with their perfect guide dog – just like Sue.
