Sponsor a Puppy today.

Introducing our newest puppy - Alfie the Christmas Elf

Alfie the Elf has landed just in time for Christmas! This adorable, 10-week old lab is looking for sponsors to help him through his puppy development sessions and one day become a life-changing Assistance Dog. Will you join him?


Each of our incredible pups will be matched to a kiwi kid living with a disability, and trained for their individual needs. They rely on the generosity of people like you to become Assistance Dogs.

It costs just $5 a week, or $20 a month  to sponsor a puppy

- thank you.


Choose from one of these three adorable puppies and follow their journey right the way through until they graduate as an Assistance Dog. Once registered, you will receive a welcome pack in the mail and updates from your pup via email every 4 months. When your puppy graduates, you can choose another puppy-in-training to follow!


Alfie was born in September 2021, and Ulla and Usha in April 2021 - depending on when you sign up, your pup may be a little older and already embarking on their incredible journey. Every donation you make will make the world of difference to each of their training and development sessions for the next 18-24 months.

Monthly Sponsorship.

For $20 a month, you can Sponsor a Puppy to help a Kiwi kid like Natalie living with a disability - thank you.


Natalie and other kids like her with epilepsy and autism struggle to navigate the world, with impulses that can lead them into dangerous situations. Transform the life of a child like Natalie by becoming a puppy sponsor today.

It costs $75,000 to train and place an Assistance Dog over it’s working lifetime.


There are 63 families on the waitlist for an Assistance Dog, with the help of Puppy Sponsors like you, together we aim to reduce the wait time and train and match a dog for each and every one of these children.
