January 30, 2020 - Seeing Eye Dogs, Puppy Carer Info Session (VIC)

Could you care for a future Seeing Eye Dog this year? Be sure you attend and get all the info you need.

The puppy caring program requires volunteers to care for a puppy in their home from the age of 8 weeks, until they are approximately 12-15 months of age.

Full time carers are needed, however if a shorter time is more suitable and you can commit to a minimum of 6 months, this may be the option for you.

If you become a puppy carer, you will be given support and guidance from the Seeing Eye Dogs team who will spend time with you to assess your needs to determine the best caring option to suit your lifestyle.
At this information evening you will find out how rewarding it is to become a puppy carer.

Hear personal accounts from people who are blind or have low vision, and how their Seeing Eye Dog has improved their independence. Discover how you can help make a difference.
