RED PUPPY AP­PEAL

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

Guide Dog Ser­vices is part of the Royal New Zealand Foun­da­tion of the Blind which re­ceives around 25 per cent of its fund­ing from the Gov­ern­ment but is en­tirely re­liant on pub­lic do­na­tions to breed and train guide dogs.

The foun­da­tion will be hold­ing its an­nual Red Puppy Ap­peal to­day and to­mor­row and col­lec­tors will be shak­ing buck­ets all over the streets of Auck­land to raise funds to train pups like Keaton.

Mr Met­calf is also en­cour­ag­ing sweet toothed-in­di­vid­u­als to bake, sell or buy bis­cuits for Red Puppy Bikkie Day, with all the pro­ceeds go­ing straight to Guide Dog Ser­vices.

Go to red­puppy.org.nz to sign up, do­nate or get more in­for­ma­tion on the guide dog ap­peal.

Big fu­ture: This lit­tle pup’s cute with a pur­pose.
