All money raised will go to Guide Dogs training programme.
What is a Red Puppy?
The name Red Puppy comes from the red coats our guide dog puppies in training wear. The RNZFB Red Puppy Appeal is all about supporting our puppies so, as RNZFB guide dogs, they can empower blind and partially sighted New Zealanders. To become a guide dog, a puppy must train for two years, pass 55 different tests and walk many thousands of steps. It is not an easy process and your support is vital in helping them succeed. With no Government funding, they rely on your generosity.
