A Recipe for Red Puppy Cookies
RNZFB Red Puppy Appeal: Friday 26th – Sunday 28th March
As if gorgeous puppies weren’t sweet enough, this year’s Red Puppy Appeal has added a further touch of sweetness with the release of the Red Puppy Cookie Cutter.
Brand new this year, the Red Puppy Appeal street collectors will have delightful puppy-shaped cookie cutters available for a $5 donation.
The Royal New Zealand Foundation of the Blind (RNZFB) receives no government funding for Guide Dog Services yet it costs $22,500 to breed then train a RNZFB guide dog puppy.
This year’s RNZFB Red Puppy Appeal runs from Friday 26 to Sunday 28 March. With 11,700 blind and partially sighted RNZFB members in New Zealand, the need has never been greater for public support.
The Red Puppy Cookie Cutters come complete with a delicious and easy recipe for Red Puppy Cookies and are expected to be a huge hit with donors young and old.
Volunteers in bright red vests with RNZFB Red Puppy Appeal collection buckets will be donating their time in a bid to raise the $1 million needed to assist funding Guide Dog Services.
Please give generously when you see RNZFB Red Puppy Appeal collectors out and about from 26th – 28th March.

My new red puppy cookie cutter
Well technically the cookie cutter was given to my daughter Poppy, when we made a donation at the street appeal for "Red Puppy" the seeing eye dog annual appeal. But I like to think it is mine also, as we always bake together. I haven't used it yet - I'll post back here when the cookies are made. However I wanted to share it with you, so you could get yourself one too!
