The Walk for Dog guides is growing every year and so is the need for trained dogs. Autism and Diabetes Alert Dogs are some of the new dogs to meet this ever demanding needs. We have outgrown Forfar Ball Park in Fergus and moving the Fergus Walk to the Community Sportsplex. (It has a walking trail, washrooms and lots of parking.) The Sportsplex is also the location of the Fergus Lions Home and Leisure Show ( May 9, 10, 11, 2018 ). Come and see the Foster Dog Puppies in the Lions booth.
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.
