The Purina® Walk for Dog Guides helps provide the essential funding needed to enable Lions Foundation to continue to provide Dog Guides at no cost to people with disabilities each year.
Lions Foundation of Canada is a unique national charity that trains Dog Guides in six distinct programs to help Canadians with disabilities. The Purina® Walk for Dog Guides helps provide the essential funding needed to enable Lions Foundation to continue to provide Dog Guides at no cost to people with disabilities each year. Each Dog Guide costs $25,000 to raise and train, yet they are provided at no cost to qualified applicants. Lions Foundation does not receive any government funding and relies solely on donations and fundraising eventslike the Purina® Walk for Dog Guides.
As the largest Walk of its kind in Canada, the Purina® Walk for Dog Guides is held in more than 200 communities and is organized by local volunteers. Thanks to sponsors, both national and local level, all proceeds go directly towards training Dog Guides for Canadians with disabilities.
