‘Name a Puppy Lynn confirmation letter’
GUIDE DOGS FOR THE BLIND ASSOCIATION
'Name a Puppy and change a life'
Thank you for supporting Guide Dogs via our Name a Puppy scheme. I am writing to you to inform you of what will happen next and to introduce myself as Guide Dogs Name a Puppy Coordinator. I will be working with Sam Bradley to look after you as you follow your pup through its exciting first year!
We have received your name suggestion and I can confirm Lynn has been Approved in loving memory of your late wife.
Once we have received your fundraising donation of £5,000 it will be put forward ready for when your puppy is born.
Guide Dogs will choose your very special puppy and once LYNN is six weeks old, we will write to you with her birth certificate and photograph - the adventure starts there!
As you follow your puppy's amazing journey over the next 14 months you will receive:
A birth certificate and photograph of your puppy aged six weeks
Five personalised updates on your puppy's progress three detailed summaries
An opportunity for you to meet your puppy on one occasion
A quality framed photograph of your puppy in training harness as LYNN goes on to commence her formal training at 12-14 months
Our puppy walkers are always keen to know who is supporting their dog. If you do not wish them to be given your name please let us know.
You should also be aware that some puppies are selected to become part of Guide Dogs' breeding programme. This ensures we continue to provide the best possible puppies for training as guide dogs.
If your puppy is selected to be breeding stock, we will write to you to inform you of this. Your puppy will be graduating to breeding stock around the same time that they would have entered formal training, so we will continue to send updates and a final photograph of them at the breeding centre at Tollgate.
Unfortunately not every puppy is successful in attaining the high standard required to become a guide dog or to become part of the Guide Dogs' breeding programme. Should your puppy be one which, during your pre-training sponsorship period, fails to attain the necessary standard, Guide Dog will contact you to inform you and offer you another puppy for you to follow through the scheme at no additional cost.
Once again thank you so much for supporting Guide Dogs. Your generous contribution will help us make a real difference to the lives of blind and partially sighted people across the UK.
The guide dog service receives no government funding so we rely on the generosity of people like you to keep doing our vital work.
We hope that you enjoy the incredible journey that your puppy LYNN will start as much as she will!
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact myself or Sam Bradley who will be very happy to help you however possible.
