Meet Meadow- the latest recruit at Support Dogs

Sheffield-based Support Dogs has named its latest recruit Meadow, in honour of its long-term partnership with Meadowhall.

The Meadowhall team were among the first to be introduced to the eight-week-old puppy, who will undergo extensive training in the first three years of her life in order to become a qualified assistance dog.

Following the gesture, the centre has pledged to cover the cost of Meadow’s vet bills for her first year with the charity.

Support Dogs is dedicated to increasing the independence and quality of life for those affected by autism, epilepsy and physical disability across the UK, by providing and training specialist assistance dogs.

Danny Anderson, fundraising manager at Support Dogs, said: “We’re marking our 30th year this year, and as we do, it only felt right to honor our longest partner who have supported us for most of our journey.

“We’re immensely grateful to the team at Meadowhall for their ongoing commitment to Support Dogs, it is generosity like this that allows us to keep supporting people across the country.”

The charity also has a partnership with Meadowhall’s co-owner, British Land, which involves sponsorship of support dog, Cobble, and knowledge sharing by Support Dogs to improve accessibility across British Land’s different sites in the UK.
