Help us raise a Guide Dog!
Every hour of every day, an Australian family learns that their loved one will have severe or permanent vision loss. Nine of these Australians will eventually go blind. It is estimated that there are over 450,000 Australians who are blind or have low vision and this number is expected to rise and significantly increase with an ageing population.
Guide Dogs Australia provide free and essential services to children, teenagers and adults who are blind or have low vision to enhance their mobility, freedom, independence and help them achieve their potential.
Across Australia there are currently 945 Guide Dog puppies in training! Head into the PETstock stores listed below this Saturday 6th April between to say hello to some amazing Guide Dogs and find out more about the incredible team of people that help raise them.

It costs more than $50,000 to breed, raise and train a Guide Dog and we think that's money well spent! So this April we're partnering with Advance, NexGard, Blackmores and Kong to raise enough funds to support a puppy on its journey to become a Guide Dog, and help change the life of an Australian living with blindness and low vision.
Shop these products during April and help us raise $50,000 for Guide Dogs Australia!
You can also donate here or during your next store visit through our PETstock Assist counter donation boxes.
