Thank you all!

Thank you to everyone who came out and supported the Lions Foundation of Canada Dog Guides through the Pet Valu Walk. You all did a fantastic job. The totals for the walk won't be available till July as they are calculating all the off line donations.

I would also like to thank all the local businesses who kindly donated items for your grab bags, and the raffle draw. I hope you enjoyed them. All of their logos are in the picture gallery.

Our totals look like they will be just shy of $12,000, but they may go up, as donations are still coming in on your walk page. So way to go keeping them coming in!

I will be posting some pictures on our North Oshawa Lions Pet Valu walk for Dog Guides facebook, and some here.

If you have pictures to share from Sunday, you can email me at sarahmoirrmt@gmail.com That would be greatly appreciated.

Look forward to seeing everyone next year!

Walk Day is almost here! Looks like a nice sunny day in store. Don't forget your sunscreen.
Great job getting those last minute donations in. Your walk page will still be available after the walk if people wanted to donate online.
We also have over $4500.00 in off line donations not showing on the website totals. Cheques and cash are submitted, then we get a final tally of our Oshawa location and also National walk totals.
Registered walkers will get one raffle ticket each, there will be more available. Make sure to take a peek at the prizes and pick out a few you would like to win!
Looking forward to seeing everyone tomorrow!

Information booth at Pet Valu Harmony Rd

We had a fun weekend at Pet Valu Harmony Rd this past weekend. Saturday was indoors due to the rain. Foster Mom Christine and Future Dog Guide Jolene (Joey) and Pepper were on their best behavior. Sunday we were outside the store and had lots of dogs and volunteers help do some fundraising and spread the word about Dog Guides and our walk coming up May 28th!
