SA Guide Dogs Association 12 Days of Christmas 2023

It’s Christmas and time for the puppies at the South African Guide-Dogs Association for the Blind to write their letters to Santa Paws!

These future Assistance Dogs have made sure to put their best paw forward all year so that they can be on the nice list this Festive Season.

With the help of the Association, the puppies have put together a special list of Christmas wishes in the form of a song – The 12 Days of Christmas (SA Guide-Dogs Version).  They now need your help to make their dreams come true.

From Puppy School Bags to Long Canes, Training Sessions to Dog Toys, their Christmas wish list is full of much-needed items to help the Association make 2024 the best year yet.

“All of the items listed in this song are vital to the health and well-being of our Assistance Dogs and disabled clients,” says Regional Marketing Manager, Jackie Quail. “Even though our message is delivered in a very cute way, it is still so important that the Association raises the funds needed so that we can keep positively changing the lives of people with disabilities across South Africa.”

The Twelve Days of Christmas – SA Guide-Dogs Version.

On the first day of Christmas, will a donor gift me, a puppy school bag under the tree.

On the second day of Christmas, I wish a donor would give to us: a grooming session: a bath and a brush.

On the third day of Christmas, I hope our donors give to me: a new collar and a new lead.

On the fourth day of Christmas, let’s politely ask, for training equipment for puppy class.

On the fifth day of Christmas, will our donors be so kind, to help us give canes to the blind

On the sixth day of Christmas, I hope our donors say, here are puppy toys because we love to play!

On the seventh day of Christmas, it will be our wish, that we have lots of treats in every dish!

On the eighth day of Christmas, we hope our donors pay for our training sessions today.

On the ninth day of Christmas, we hope that we do get donations so we can visit the vet.

On the tenth day of Christmas, we hope our donors will be nice and help give a client an assistive device.

On the eleventh day of Christmas, it would be so cool, if our donors could help us go to school!

On the twelfth day of Christmas, to our donors, we want to say – Thank you for helping us every day!
