I have chosen the Dog Guides as my charity for the year. I have had the experience of learning, how big a difference a Dog Guide can make for someone. It helps bring independence to that person as well as a source of stress relief for family members who care for that person. The Lion's Club Dog Guide program is the only program in Canada where the service dogs are provided free of charge, including the training for the recipient. It truly makes a difference in someone's life.
Thank you for registering for the Walk for Dog Guides! Thanks to our sponsors, 100 per cent 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 3,000 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.
