Sponsor a Dog Guide Team

Sponsoring a Dog Guide will cover a portion of the $35,000 that it costs to raise and train a puppy and ultimately match with its handler. The entire process takes up to two years and your sponsorship helps provide the puppy’s complete training and veterinary care, as well as the transportation and accommodation for the handler while in residence at the Oakville training school. Your support will help the Dog Guide team be partners for as long as 10 years, with a life-time of follow-up.

Your sponsorship can be directed to the program of your choice.

If you’re ready to become a sponsor, use our online form and select “Sponsor a Team”. Or fill out out and mail in the form in our Scholarship brochure:
