Purina Walk For Dog Guides Takes Place This Sunday, May 29

Purina & Dog Guides

What is the Purina® Walk for Dog Guides?

The Purina Walk for Dog Guides is a national event with more than 200 Walks across Canada. This is the Foundation’s largest annual fundraiser and raises funds to help train Dog Guides for Canadians with visual, hearing, medical or physical disabilities. Held primarily in the spring, the Walks are organized by local volunteers with support from Lions Foundation of Canada and have raised more than $7 million since it began. This year’s national Walk date is Sunday, May 29th, 2011.
Thanks to NestlĂ© Purina PetCare Canada and our national sponsors, 100% of the funds you raise go directly to the work of training and providing Dog Guides. NestlĂ© Purina PetCare Canada has been supporting Lions Foundation of Canada from the beginning. For more about Purina’s assistance, click here.

Why walk for Dog Guides?

  • To help provide Dog Guides to the growing number of Canadians who need them.
