Blake Vets Charity of the Year – Canine Partners
Every year we choose a charity to support, and our staff and customers help us to raise money for our chosen charity through various fundraising activities and events.
For 2019 we are delighted to be supporting Canine Partners.
Canine Partners is a UK charity transforming the lives of people living with disabilities by training amazing assistance dogs.
The canine partners help adults aged 18 and over who have a physical disability or condition that affects their daily life and limits their independence. The canine partners are trained to help with everyday tasks such as opening and closing doors, unloading the washing machine, picking up dropped items, pressing buttons and switches and fetching help in an emergency. As such, they make a tremendous difference to the lives of the people they support.
Money raised goes towards choosing and buying the very special puppies, their advanced training and care, training and supporting the applicant and their canine partner in their early days together and continual ongoing support during the lifetime of the partnership.
We’ll be having lots of fundraising activities – including a staff sky dive (more details on our Just Giving page) – and we hope you will join us in supporting this very special cause.
