The evening will begin with “Yappy Hour Festival” from 5:00-6:30 p.m., with activities for you and your dog such as a puppy kissing booth, pet pictures , dog contests, canine massage station, “peticures”, ask a trainer tips, pet health corner, dog and owner community activities, silent auction, refreshments and so much more! At 6:30 p.m., the Walk will commence with our master of ceremonies, acclaimed Canadian actress and comedian, Kathy Greenwood, followed by a 2.5km or 5km walk through beautiful High Park. The Toronto West PetValu Walk For Dog Guides is in memory of former foster parent Erica Stark. She is remembered as a dedicated community volunteer that has touched the lives of many. Her family continues to support Dog Guides every day.
Thanks to our sponsors, 100% of the funds raised from the Walk go directly towards the raising, training and placement of Dog Guides for Canadians with medical or physical disabilities. Dog Guides Canada has already provided specially trained Dog Guides to more than 2764 men, women and children, all without any government funding. With your help more people will experience the mobility, safety and independence a devoted Dog Guide brings.
