Puppy Raisers are very special volunteers who take a puppy into their homes, lives and hearts for 11 to 18 months and then, just when that mischievous puppy has developed into a well behaved and mature dog, they give them back! Many of them then start all over again with a new puppy! This is a volunteer program by the Guide Dog Association of South Africa.
While the puppy is with the Puppy Raisers, they are socialised as much as possible. It is very important that the dogs are introduced to as wide a range of experiences, places, people and animals as possible.
If you have any queries regarding the Puppy Raising Scheme, please contact one of the Puppy Raising Supervisors :
