Through this donation, PETstock Assist will help raise and train two guide dogs for two eager Australians waiting to be matched with new guiding companions.
PETstock Assist has been a proud partner of Guide Dogs Australia since 2014, helping Australians with low vision or blindness find their own sense of freedom to live the life they want.
“Thanks to our generous network of retail partners, we’re able to support programs that are making a positive difference to the lives of children or adults with low vision or blindness across the country,” PETstock Assist charity and events lead Jessica Curtis said.
“Not only do we hope to raise vital funds that will go towards training puppies into life-changing guide dogs, but also raise awareness of the work of guide dogs and educate the public on how they can contribute and show their support.
“That’s why we’re asking not only our community of pet parents, but anyone that wants to help people with blindness or low vision lead safe and independent lives, to join in our mission in raising $100,000 for Guide Dogs this month.”
PETstock’s retail partners including Boehringer Ingelheim, Mars, Blackmores, Rogz and Kong have all committed to help raise funds and awareness of the ‘Raise A Guide Dog’ campaign.
