About our street collections

Our annual Guide Dog Puppy Appeal Street Collection plays a vital role in funding practical and emotional support services.

We are looking for volunteers to coordinate collections in their community. If you’re organised, friendly, and approachable, then we need you.

Just a few hours with a bucket helps to breed and train guide dogs who provide independence for Kiwis who are blind, deafblind, or have low vision. Want to know more?

Our stories

Our street collections are a very important time for us to be generous as a community and to focus on the people who benefit from that generosity. People featured in the stories are living their best lives thanks to our wonderful supporters.
