I am raising funds for Guide Dogs

April, my gorgeous Guide Dog and I are taking part in PAWGUST 2020 on behalf of Guide Dogs Australia because I'm passionate about helping Guide Dog puppies in training and supPAWting people in our community living with sight loss. April has transformed my life!

During the month of August, my dog(s) and I will be walking 30 minutes a day for 30 days. That's RUFFly 2km every day which is no small feat in the winter weather! We are doing it to raise vital funds for Guide Dogs puppies currently in training.

And that's where you come in! By supPAWting my dog(s) and I, you are helping to raise much needed funds for Guide Dog puppies in training. Did you know it costs in excess of $50,000 to breed, raise and train just one Guide Dog pup?!

PAWlease, will you show your supPAWt by donating to me today? Anything you can give will help.

With your supPAWt we can change people’s lives by helping current Guide Dog puppies in training. Plus, it will also inspire me and my pooch to complete our 30 minutes each day!

Paws out!
