Some lucky people with your help and support will receive service dogs, just like I did with Twister, so I thank you!! Since 1983 more than 2,000 men, women and children have received a Dog Guide at no cost, even though the process of raising and training each Dog Guide costs approximately $25,000.
Thank you for registering for the Walk for Dog Guides! 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.
