This year we are very excited to be hosting Moose Jaw's 2nd annual Pet Valu Walk for Dog Guides! As the parent of a Dog Guide team, I have seen firsthand the change and improved quality of life these beautiful pups bring to not only the handler, but the family and friends supporting them. The Lions Foundation of Canada Dog Guides gets no government funding and relies on the generous donations to get these life-changing dogs into the homes of Canadians at no cost to the person in need. We look forward to meeting you, and our walk is dog friendly (however, you don't need a dog to walk) and wheelchair friendly. It is also very casual so if you decide you just want to bring down a donation and visit, that's okay too! Check us out on Twitter and Instagram @MJDogWalk
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.
