Spare change really does make a difference
Our iconic Collection Dogs have been working hard to raise money for Guide Dogs for the past 40 years.
The Collection Dog Program enables businesses to support Guide Dogs at no cost, other than a small amount of counter or floor space. By collecting small change in the community, big changes can be made so every contribution is very much appreciated.
The rewards of doing the rounds
Our ‘dogs’ are collected regularly. Large Collection Dogs are emptied, cleaned and maintained on site, while small Collection Dogs are replaced with a new dog each time. Once the dog's contents are counted, businesses receive a letter detailing how much money their dog has collected.
Volunteers play a vital role in our mini and model dog collection program which raises considerable funds for our organisation. Volunteers are required to apply in couples and be available for one day a fortnight or month.
Different sizes available
Our large Collection Dogs are about 85 cm tall and are suitable for high volume areas, such as supermarkets, shopping centres and large variety stores.
Our small Collection Dogs are about 28 cm tall and can sit on a counter near a cash register, such as a hotel, newsagency, bakery or butchery.
All our Collection Dogs are labelled with our logo and contact details.
A worthy invitation
You are invited to join the many businesses that support Guide Dogs through a Collection Dog. All you need to do is supply a place for your Collection Dog and we can do the rest. It's that easy.
