PETstock’s charity foundation, PETstock Assist, aims to raise $50,000 this month for Guide Dogs Australia to support the training that will help puppies become life-changing guide dogs.

With the help of pet parents across the country, dedicated PETstock team members and the support of generous supply partners, PETstock Assist is donating to Guide Dogs Australia as part of their ongoing commitment to supporting the charity organisation.

PETstock Assist charity and events coordinator, Jessica Guilfoyle, said the donation is all thanks to compassionate pet parents and PETstock’s retail partners, including ADVANCE, PAW by Blackmores, KONG Company and NexGard.

“It is estimated there are 450,000 Australians who are blind or have low vision,” Guilfoyle said.

“Together with the help of the pet community, PETstock Assist hopes to Raise a Guide Dog, Change a Life with this $50,000 donation; the amount required to breed, raise, train, and match a suitable guide dog with a person with blindness or low vision.

“PETstock Assist has been a proud partner of Guide Dogs Australia since 2014 and we’re honoured to continue our support through this donation.”
