Puppy Sponsorship Programme
Join our "Puppy Sponsorship Programme"- $5 a Week is all it takes to help raise and train one of our amazing assistance puppies!
Our Puppy Sponsorship Programme aims to support the essential costs of breeding and raising 20 assistance puppies a year.
Most of the costs involve veterinary care, nutrition, support for our volunteer puppy raisers by our Puppy Development Supervisor, kennel boarding costs and dog training equipment e.g. collars, leash, puppy harness, whistle, food bowl.
Please help us to achieve our mission and provide this essential Assistance Dog service to people who need our help.
Every assistance puppy is reared and socialised by a loving volunteer puppy raising family, who have taken a puppy into their hearts and into their home for a year to help our cause.
As these puppies move through their journey of socialisation, learning and play from 8 weeks to 14 months we invite our Puppy Sponsors to follow their progress and support our organisation to train these dogs for vulnerable adults and children in need of an assistance dog.

We are please to introduce Demi, Gus and Gracie our 3 new puppies for our 2018 Puppy Sponsorship Programme.
Demi is a female Black Labrador x Golden Retriever. She was born in October 2017 and grew up with her sister Dexi at ADNZ in the Waikato. The sisters get on very well, are playful and love to explore! Demi has recently been placed with her puppy raising family where she will spend the next 12 – 14 months before starting formal Assistance Dog training.
Gus and Gracie are Yellow Labradors and were born in Japan in July 2017. They are brother and sister and have settled very well in New Zealand and we love having them at ADNZ! We are very grateful to JGDA for providing us with these beautiful puppies and we hope that one of them may become future breeding stock.
