Sharon Hergott was a devoted member of the Lions Club of Pike Lake - Minto, and along with support from her husband Gerry, they have been involved with Dog Guides for many years. Their beloved dog Pearl provided litters that resulted in more than 40 of Pearl's pups becoming Dog Guides and providing valuable services to Canadians. Friends of the Hergotts, and dog lovers everywhere are encouraged to participate in the 2019 Pet Valu / Lions Foundation of Canada Dog Guide Walk in memory of Sharon and Pearl
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.
