Sight loss charity Guide Dogs has launched an appeal in Chorleywood for volunteers who could provide a loving home to a guide dog puppy for the first year of their life. The role supports puppies from about seven weeks of age until they are around 12-16 months old. They then head off to a training centre to begin their specialised training.  The charity covers the cost of all the food, veterinary care and equipment required.

This is a long-term volunteering role, where each puppy will live with you for at least a year. Volunteers must be aged over 18 and have suitable housing. Caring for a puppy is a full-time commitment and you must be able to give a guide dog pup the love and attention they deserve. Applicants must have the ability to access online content and training materials and have an email address.
To find out more contact Tony Edwards, a Chorleywood Guide Dog Volunteer, on 07970292655 or who will be happy to talk  or meet up along with his Guide Dog puppy Mitzy.
