Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - CHRISTMAS -

SHARE the puppy love this Christ­mas by do­nat­ing some much-needed items for WA guide dog pup­pies.

Items sought in­clude pet fu­ton beds, Kong wob­blers, large goodie bones, snug­gle/plush toys, Love ‘Em liver treats, and fleece or cro­chet blan­kets.

“We wanted an easy way for the com­mu­nity to get in­volved with guide dogs this Christ­mas, to kick­start their train­ing jour­ney,” said Guide Dogs WA puppy-rais­ing team mem­ber Suzanne D’Arcy.

“You can feel good know­ing you’ve spread the Christ­mas cheer and made a real dif­fer­ence to the lives of some very spe­cial West Aus­tralian pup­pies.”

It takes a min­i­mum of two years and costs more than $35,000 to train a guide dog.

Guide Dogs WA is re­liant on the sup­port of the com­mu­nity to fund the Guide Dog pro­gram. There are five drop-off points across Perth: VisA­bil­ity Guide Dogs WA Perth Up­mar­ket at QV1 Cottes­loe Vet Hol­i­day Inn Perth City Cen­tre Anytime Fit­ness Bel­don
