After the success of our Bridge to Brisbane fundraising for Guide Dogs Queensland in 2017 and 2018, we have been recognised as a Guide Dogs Queensland Official Partner.
Werner Raspotnik, our Executive Chairman, matched our fund raising efforts in 2017 with a further donation to GDQ.
We are pleased to announce that the 2017 donation to Guide Dogs Queensland has been allocated and will go towards improving and advancing the breeding programme here in Queensland. Our funds will provide staff training as well as importing a dog from America to be used for breeding (brood) along with importing semen for the breeding programme. This will ensure that the GDQ dogs have improved genetics in their breeding stock and also allow GDQ to reduce wait times to meet their client’s needs.
We are delighted to be a part of this journey with Guide Dogs Queensland from the beginning.
We look foward to visiting the Breeding Centre and catching up with Dion the Breeding and Veterinary Care Manager.

Total donations raised 2018: $29,639
