Four local clubs join forces Sunday, May 27 with over 200 LIONS clubs across Canada to raise funds that will help Canadians with disabilities live more independent lives. Our three area Lions clubs: Omemee and District, Fowler's Corners and District, and Dunsford and District, as well as Omemee Lioness; are working together to host a Purina® Walk for Dog Guides along the Kawartha Trans Canada Trail. Since 1983, LIONS Foundation of Canada has provided Dog Guides to more than 1600 people of all ages with disabilities.

Funds Provide Dog Guides to Canadians with Disabilities



All funds funds raised through Purina® Walk for Dog Guides go directly towards raising, training and providing Dog Guides at no cost to Canadians with disabilities. Dog Guides are provided to Canadians facing a wide variety of challenges for help with: hearing and sight issues, seizure response, autism, physical and mobility issues, and special skills needs. The Purina® Walk for Dog Guides is the largest fundraiser of its kind in Canada.
