Puppy Rita Steals the Spotlight - Guide Dogs for the Blind's website

Updated: May 20

Adorable Rita Steals the Spotlight on Guide Dogs for the Blind's website.

We're brimming with pride as Rita, the lovable guide dog puppy we had the honour of fostering, takes centre stage on the Guide Dogs for the Blind website's homepage. This heart warming recognition is a testament to the incredible journey Rita has undertaken in her first two years of life.

For the initial 12 months, Rita was a cherished member of our family, showering us with unconditional love and companionship while diligently learning the essential skills to become a life-changing guide dog. Her radiant image now graces the website, serving as an inspiring ambassador for the invaluable Puppy Walking program.

Puppy Walking is a full-time volunteering role that invites dedicated individuals to open their hearts and homes to these extraordinary puppies. By providing a nurturing environment, puppy walkers play a crucial role in shaping the puppies' early development, instilling the foundation for their future service as guide dogs.

The Guide Dogs for the Blind organization offers comprehensive training, support, and guidance throughout this rewarding journey. Puppy walkers become part of a vibrant community, attending weekly training classes and forging lasting connections with fellow volunteers who share their passion for this noble cause.

As we bask in the pride of witnessing Rita's accomplishments, we extend our gratitude to all guide dogs and the remarkable individuals who dedicate themselves to the Puppy Walking program. Their selfless commitment and love create a profound impact, empowering individuals with visual impairments to navigate the world with confidence and independence.

If you feel called to embark on this life-changing adventure, we encourage you to explore the Guide Dogs for the Blind website ( and discover how you can become a part of this extraordinary mission.
