Happy Tails

Pet Valu Walk for Dog Guides

This May, help us “walk across Canada” to give more Canadians a new leash on life!

Our dogs' happy tails show how much they enjoy their jobs. And there a million happy tales about the enormous difference guide dogs make in the lives of those with disabilities. Join us if you can on some happy trails to add your distance travelled to reach the goal of a virtual walk across Canada.

And please donate if you can to the Lions Foundation of Canada Dog Guides. You'll be supporting Dog Guide development and training and providing Canadians with disabilities the training and support they need to form a successful partnership with their highly trained canine aides. By removing financial barriers to Dog Guide partnerships, you'll be empowering Canadians with disabilities to navigate their world with confidence and independence. 

I can personally speak to the difference my Dog Guide, Shay, makes in my life, and I very much wish other Canadians with disabilities to have the same tremendous experience of increased safety, support and love.
