Tis the season to walk your dog (and actually enjoy it instead of freeze in the cold).
This weekend there are two great causes you can support while walking your pup and giving them the opportunity to have a play date with other dogs!
Pet Valu Walk For Dog Guides Sat May 27th, 2017 @ 8:00am
The first one is the Pet Valu Walk For Dog Guides happening this Saturday, May 27th at Waterloo Park Hospitality Area (50 Young Street, Waterloo).. 100% of the funds raised will go to six separate dog guide training programs. Dog Guides are provided at no cost to people with a physical or medical disability and I can say I’ve personally seen how a Guide Dog can change someone’s life.
Lions Foundation of Canada Dog Guides have provided specially trained Dog Guides to over 2,500 eligible Canadians from coast to coast at no cost despite costing $25,000 to train and place and no government funding.
