(More puppies are joining the sponsorship program soon... email us to be notified once they arrive)
Inka is a confident girl who LOVES a treat. She likes to start her day with cuddles and has perfected moving her bed to the sunny spots in the house.
Inka's a bundle of energy but is very gentle with children. You'll never see a dog wiggle more than Inka at vacuum cleaner time.
With an eagerness to please her human, Inka's progressing wonderfully with her puppy homework. She'd love you to be her sponsor and will do her best to make you proud!
Choose one of these adorable puppies and follow their journey right through until they graduate as an Assistance Dog. Once registered, you will receive a welcome pack in the mail and updates from your puppy via email every 4 months. When your puppy graduates, you can choose another puppy-in-training to follow!
Inka (girl) was born in February 2023. Depending on when you sign up, your puppy may be a little older and already embarking on their incredible journey. Every donation you make will make a world of difference to each of their training and development sessions for the next 18-24 months. Thank you!
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.
