On Friday 8 March 2013 the South African Guide Dog Association had a Boerewors Roll sale at Sanlam Head office in Bellville to raise funds. Some Guide dogs and their owners as well as two puppies and their trainers came to visit.
It was a wet and cold Friday, but the rain did not put a damper on the fundraising.
By lunchtime the guide dogs were showered with attention and people wanting to know more about the dogs and how the training work.
All these lovely people supported the South African Guide Dog Association by buying a Boerewors Roll or two…
Preparing the Sausages for the Boerewors Rolls
The South African Guide Dog Association trains on average 65 guide dogs per year for the blind and visually impaired. The process is human intensive and the guide dogs are trained over and 18 month period. The first phase is spent with their “Puppy Raisers”, dedicated families and individuals who “adopt” a young guide dog puppy for 12 months. Thereafter the young guide dog in training returns to the SAGA centre and is allocated to a qualified guide dog mobility instructor who will formally train the dog for a further 6 months until it is allocated to a blind recipient. You can sponsor a puppy for R3500 or a full guide dog for R10 000.
