All about...............Guide Dogs for the Blind
Guide Dogs for the Blind provide mobility for people who are blind and partially sighted.
A Guide Dog begins its life by being puppy-walked and goes for further training at 12 months. The dog will be fully trained by 18 months - 2 years and is then paired up with its new owner. This makes a real difference to the quality of life of the visually impaired person, giving them independence, often for the first time in their lives.
The working life of a Guide Dog lasts usually until it is 8-9 years old, depending on its health. Currently costs are £50,000 to maintain a Guide Dog throughout its life and funds raised from today's collection will be used to help subsidise these costs and maintain mobility and independence for someone in our local area.
PLEASE GIVE GENEROUSLY
