a Puppy

Thank you for choosing to sponsor a puppy. For as little as $5 a week, you can help train a dog to enrich the lives of New Zealanders and their family living with a disability. Simply choose your puppy, select a payment method and you’re done! You’ll receive a welcome email with the latest update of your chosen puppy and a pack in the mail with a framed photo and some extra goodies.


Make sure to follow us on Facebook or Instagram for more regular updates too! Our current sponsored puppies were all born in 2019 and are now big pups starting to learn some tricks.

Puppy sponsorship makes a huge difference for children who are desperately waiting for an Assistance Dog. Your support will directly contribute to the development and training costs of our puppies. It costs a massive $75,000 to breed, train, graduate and support an assistance dog and we couldn’t do it without you!

"By sponsoring a puppy and supporting this charity, you’re giving someone like Bella the chance to be able to live a normal life and do what normal kids do. The whole family benefits from Bella too - she is a delightful, loopy dog and does the silliest things that bring the biggest smile to Bella’s face."

Our sweet-natured girl

Full of adventure

An energetic go-getter
