Discover Blairgowrie Name a Puppy AppealWe will Sponsor a guide dog puppy 

Our aim to raise £5,000 in aid of Guide Dogs for the Blind has been reached! We are delighted to announce we have raised over £5000 and the name drawn is Bramble. Bramble has now been born and is with her puppy walker! We hope to get to meet Bramble soon Watch this space! The remaining names for our second name a puppy are:

  • Berry
  • Blair
  • Bluebell
  • Rattray
  • Cargill
  • Newton

Now the money is raised we will count all the votes and the most popular name will be given to a puppy.  Those who selected that name will go back in the hat for 1 name to be drawn and the lucky person will get to meet the puppy.

Thank you so much for your support.  We will keep this page updated with progress AND we will be carrying on to raise more money!
