Old Perlican to host Walk for Dog Guides
Old Perlican is one of 140 communities across Canada, which will take part in the Purina Walk for Dog Guides next month.
The Lions Foundation of Canada/Dog Guides Canada’s largest annual fundraiser is scheduled to take place Sunday, May 31.
While the cost of placing and training a Dog Guide is approximately $20,000, Dog Guides, including all required training, travel and accommodation are provided at no cost to eligible candidates.
One hundred per cent of the proceeds from the walk go directly towards the Lions Foundation of Canada and its Dog Guide programs.
The Foundation trains Dog Guides to help people who are blind or visually impaired, deaf or hard of hearing, or who have other medical or physical disabilities.
The Foundation does not receive any government funding.
The Dog Guides have the ability to make a difference in the lives of Canadians with disabilities. For more information visit: www. ourinawalkfordogguides.com
