Petbarn Foundation Annual Seeing Eye Dogs Appeal 2024

Proudly supported by: 

Petbarn Foundation Seeing Eye Dogs Appeal

Our aim is to raise $1m in donations to help train-up 20 Seeing Eye Dogs pups

It costs $50k to train-up a single Seeing Eye Dogs pup.

These Seeing Eye Dogs provide vital support, constant companionship, independence and contribute to an all-round better quality of life for people in our community who are blind or have low vision.

 Since 2014, the Petbarn Foundation has donated $7m to train up 152 Seeing Eye Dogs. This year, Royal Canin has donated $50k to fund the first Seeing Eye Dogs pup for our 2024 Appeal!

Mabel & Clare take on the world

In 2019, Clare was matched with Mabel, a Seeing Eye Dog, who has greatly increased her confidence and independence. "I flew to Sydney by myself a few weeks ago and I probably wouldn’t do that if I was still on the cane, I’d go with somebody... she just really gives me confidence," Clare explained.

Sophie & Winnie, independent together

Winnie has significantly improved Sophie’s life, she even saved her life by stopping her from being hit by a car running a red light. "If she hadn’t stopped, the driver would’ve hit me."

Grateful for the support, Sophie expresses, "I’m just so grateful Petbarn Foundation have chosen Seeing Eye Dogs so Vision Australia can provide more Winnies to people like me."

The Power of Partnerships

Nick's adventures as a Paralympic athlete, marathon runner and blind AFL player became less lonely after being matched with his first Seeing Eye Dog, Unity.

Nick expresses his gratitude to Seeing Eye Dogs supporters and Petbarn: "It’s partnerships that create success. Petbarn understand the importance of giving back and what these dogs do, and they’re living examples of how they enable people with disabilities to achieve so much."
