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.
Lions Foundation of Canada Dog Guides is thrilled to announce a new partnership for our Walk for Dog Guides for 2017 with Pet Valu as the title sponsor. We are excited that Pet Valu has chosen to support the Walk in such a significant way while continuing their generous donations to our Dog Guide programs, sponsoring teams at every graduation. The Pet Valu family of stores includes Pet Valu, Paulmac’s Pet Food and Bosley’s, and they are one of the largest retail operations in Canada dedicated to providing families with food and supplies for their pets.
As the largest event of its kind in Canada, the Pet Valu Walk for Dog Guides takes place in over 245 communities and in every province. Each walk is organized by local Lions Clubs, community volunteers and Dog Guide recipients. The Walks are designed to be accessible to all ages and abilities and everyone, with or without a dog, is welcome to attend. Every year, new communities join to host their first Walks and seasoned Walks grow in participation and funds raised.
Help us provide more Canadians with a new leash on life by becoming a national sponsor of the Pet Valu Walk for Dog Guides. For information regarding sponsorship, please contact:Julie Jelinek
