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.
