Love puppies? Could you care for a future Seeing Eye Dog in 2019?
“It’s absolutely rewarding. You see a puppy and it makes you proud to know that later on they’re going to help somebody and help them achieve their life dreams.”
Meet Dina: Seeing Eye Dogs repeat puppy carer for 3 years
What is the Puppy Carer program?
The Puppy Carer program offers either full-time (12-15 months) or 6 month caring options.
Your role as a carer is to provide a safe space, nurture and socialise the puppy. Seeing Eye Dogs covers all expenses including equipment, food, vet costs, puppy health care and training.
As a puppy carer, you will receive support and guidance from the Seeing Eye Dogs team who will spend time with you to assess your needs to determine the best caring option.
Corporate Puppy Carer program
Vision Australia Seeing Eye Dogs greatly appreciates organisations that support us through their corporate social responsibility programs. Our ‘Corporate Puppy Carer program’ not only fits well into these programs, but has the added benefits of enhancing staff well-being and morale.
So, we are making it easier than ever for employees to become volunteer puppy carers and to care for a puppy in the workplace. We offer individual carer programs, assist with puppy caring workplace policies and assessments, and provide detailed information for building management upon request.
What is a Puppy Carer information session?
Come and meet our puppies and learn from Seeing Eye Dogs staff and other carers how you can play an important role supporting someone who is blind or has low vision.
