With the generous support of sponsors, both at the national and local level, 100% of funds raised by each walker goes directly towards Dog Guides’ six programs. This ensures all donations to the Pet Valu Walk for Dog Guides fulfill the mission of providing Dog Guides at no cost to Canadians with physical and medical disabilities.
