Get to Know Our Partners

With the generous support of sponsors, both at the national and local level, funds raised by each walker goes directly towards Dog Guides’ seven programs.

Title Sponsor

Pet Valu and the Pet Valu Family of Stores

Lions Foundation of Canada Dog Guides is the national charitable partner of the Pet Valu family of stores and we are proud to have them as the title sponsor of the Pet Valu Walk for Dog Guides. In addition to supporting the walk in such a significant way, the Pet Valu family is Dog Guides' national feeding partner, providing their premium line of Performatrin dog food for all puppies, breeding dogs and Dog Guides in training. 

Pet Valu Family of Stores also fundraise throughout the year to raise money to sponsor a Dog Guide team at every graduation. To date, Pet Valu has sponsored over 200 Dog Guide teams across Canada!.

Pet Valu Sponsored teams include (left to right) Facility Support Dog Marielle with Beausejour Family Crisis Resource Center, Moncton, New Brunswick, Alex & Stanley, Autism Assistance, Newcastle, Ontario and Josh & Glory, Service, Amherst, Nova Scotia.

 The Pet Valu family of stores is one of the largest retail operations in Canada dedicated to providing families with food and supplies for their pets. In addition to raising funds throughout the year for sponsorships, many stores across Canada get involved with the walk by hosting, supporting their local walk or registering a team. Thank you Pet Valu and your family of stores for your incredible partnership and support!

Sponsorship Opportunities

As the largest event of its kind in Canada, the Pet Valu Walk for Dog Guides takes place in local communities in each province across the country. Each walk is organized by local Lions Clubs, community volunteers and Dog Guide recipients. The walks are designed to be accessible to all ages and abilities and everyone, with or without a dog, is welcome to attend. Every year, new communities join to host their first walks and seasoned walks grow in participation and funds raised.
