This project will expend the current working dog breeding centre in Johannesburg, South Africa to provide a spacious, comfortable, sterile environment for our brood bitches to welp their pups. This facility also provides bio sensory stimulation to the pups from 3 days old until 7 weeks of age. S A Guide-Dogs Association for the Blind aims to breed 100 working dogs giving the gift of Mobility, Companionship and Independence to the lives of the differently-abled.
There are currently more than 1 - 2 % of the South African population living with visual impairment according to the World Health Organisation. S A Guide-Dogs Association for the Blind is working diligently to assist as many visually impaired people per year being the only organisation of its kind in the African continent. This project will impact more than 100 differently-abled individuals who reside in South Africa and surrounds.
S A Guide-Dogs Association for the Blind provides the gift of Companionship, Mobility and Independence to people who are visually impaired. This allows for the visually impaired community to integrate back into society and contribute economically as they are able to work. The more puppies we are able to breed, the more people who are visually impaired's lives we get to change.
The project will provide 100 working dogs to be bred and trained to be working dogs, allowing these differently-abled individuals to rise up with confidence, have a companion, be mobile and independent and provide financially for their families.
