Request adoption

Please fill out the below form, with as much information as possible.

The more detail the adoptions team receive the more likely you will be matched to a suitable dog.

Please note: In order for your application to be considered you must be ready to adopt and bring the dog home within one week of meeting the dog.

You also need to specify which dog you are registering your interest for.

The adoption fee for a released Seeing Eye Dog is $2500 and goes some of the way into covering the costs of raising the dog prior to adoption, including veterinary treatments, desexing, vaccinations and professional training.

Seeing Eye Dogs do not offer a trial period or refunds for adoptions. Our thorough adoption selection and interview process allows us to assess suitability of the selected applicant.
