For over 34 years, the Pet Valu Walk for Dog Guides has been a vital national fundraiser in support of Lions Foundation of Canada Dog Guides. On June 9, 2019, approximately 300 communities across Canada will participate in The Walk which raises funds to provide life-changing Dog Guides to Canadians with physical and medical disabilities at no cost to them. A family and dog-friendly event that welcomes participants of all ages and abilities, The Pet Valu Walk for Dog Guides relies on the generous support of volunteers, donors, and partners to meet its goal of giving Canadians a new “leash” on life.
The Lions Foundation of Canada Dog Guides provides specially trained Dog Guides through seven distinct programs meeting a wide range of needs, Dog Guides increase the independence, mobility, and safety of their handlers.
This is a great way for you, your dog and all your friends to give back to the community and get walking! Please visit the official website for the Pet Valu Walk for Dogs to find the details for your own community. CanEVA will be walking in Fergus, Ontario with our toy poodle Mouffett and crazy Chinese crested Scarlett O’Hara. This is a cause worth getting behind and once again a great example of the bond between man and dog.
