In 2016, I took the plunge and decided to foster my first puppy through the Lions Foundation of Canada Dog Guides. Throughout my fostering journey I have learned just how much these animals do for people with disabilities. In support of LFDG, I am walking to raise awareness about the organization, its programs, and the efforts they put forth to give a working dog guide to Canadians at no cost.
Dog Guides are provided at no cost to qualified applicants. Thanks to national sponsors, 100% of the funds raised from the Walk go directly to the six Dog Guide training programs. Dog Guides Canada has already provided their specially trained Dog Guides to more than 2,000 men, women and children from ages 4 to 88, all without any government funding. With your help more people can experience the mobility, safety and independence a devoted Dog Guide brings.
