As a sponsor, you will gain a unique insight into your puppy’s development and training.
Once your puppy graduates, your sponsorship will transfer on to a new puppy, or you can sponsor a dog all the way through its life from puppyhood to retirement.

You can sponsor a puppy for yourself or as the perfect gift for a loved one!
Having a Dogs for Autism assistance dog can produce life changing benefits for their autistic partners and their families.
Independence, access to education, the workplace and the community bring joy and riches taken for granted by most. The people we work with experience profound barriers to experiencing their world, but with the help of an assistance dog their potential is finally unlocked in a way that no other support or interventions achieve.
Why Do We Need Your Support?
Our services provide an intensive level of support tailored to each autistic individual’s needs; for the majority this provides a lifeline where no comparable help is available.
We currently have 30 assistance dogs in the UK that are either working or in training, but we receive over a thousand enquiries each year from people interested in applying. The only limit to how many dogs we can train and place with families is financial, and once we have more funds in place, we will be able to train more dogs to support more autistic people.
Every pound donated or raised makes a substantial difference to autistic adults and children within the UK.
When you sponsor one of our gorgeous pups, you will get your very own puppy pack including:
- A sponsorship certificate
- A Dogs for Autism Bag or cuddly toy
- A photo of your sponsor pup
- Quarterly pupdates
- A Dogs for Autism mug after being a sponsor for a year
