Event description

Description

This spring, Canadians and their four-legged “best friends” are preparing to walk together for the Pet Valu Walk for Dog Guides on Sunday, May 28th. This year’s Walk will be held in more than 240 communities across Canada, many of which will take place on Sunday, May 28th, the national walk date. The largest fundraising endeavor of its kind, the Pet Valu Walk for Dog Guides helps to raise, train and place service dogs with Canadians who have a medical or physical disability. All dogs are welcome to participate, but you do not need a dog to join us.

Each of the walks is organized by local volunteers with support from Lions Foundation of Canada. Held annually, the Walk has raised more than $14 million over the years.

While each Dog Guide costs an average of $25,000, they are provided free of charge to qualifying applicants. Lions Foundation of Canada receives no government funding and relies solely on donations from individuals, corporations, and fundraising activities. This is why the Pet Valu Walk for Dog Guides is so important.
