MORE THAN and Dogs for Good
Our sponsored puppies, celebrating their first birthday
First birthday pupdate
In 2021, we proudly partnered with Dogs for Good - a charity supporting people with a wide range of disabilities and conditions, such as autism and dementia, through specially trained dogs. We pledged to sponsor five of their puppies heading to their new volunteer homes, and starting their assistance dog training.
At MORE THAN, we are sponsoring the puppies with funding for their entire lives. From the first 18 months they spend in training, to when they become fully-fledged assistance dogs supporting their new families.
The puppies (Damson, Darcy, Delta, DeeDee, and Ernie) turned one in November 2021. To celebrate, we've put together an update on each, so you can see how they're getting on.
