Vision Australia Seeing Eye Dogs provides care and training for pups to become Seeing Eye Dogs and make a big difference to Australians who are blind or have low vision. Our Seeing Eye Dogs open up a world of independence, safety and freedom for clients to participate in all areas of life. A Seeing Eye Dog allows a person to move more quickly and navigate obstacles with much more reliability and safety. We also provide ongoing support for clients to ensure they and their Seeing Eye Dog continue to work well together and are both happy and healthy.

Proceeds from tickets sales support the breeding and training of Seeing Eye Dogs as well as the other specialist blindness and low vision services Vision Australia provides. It costs more than $50,000 and takes up to two years to breed, care for and train a world class Seeing Eye Dog.

Your contribution will give someone who is legally blind, choice to do things on their own. It’s about giving them the chance to travel independently, to contribute to their community and maintain their working life safely. Seeing Eye dogs substantially improve the quality of life for people who are blind or have low vision. Your contribution makes a life changing impact.
