Windsor & District Lions Club, with assistance from New Minas Lions Club, visited the New Minas Pet Valu to promote their Walk for Dog Guides which was held at the Windsor Water Front, on June 25th.
This family and dog-friendly event welcomed participants of all ages and abilities. The Pet Valu Walk for Dog Guides relies on the generous support of volunteers, donors, and partners to meet its goal of giving Canadians a new leash on life.
For more than 30 years, the Pet Valu Walk for Dog Guides has been a vital national fundraiser in support of Lions Foundation of Canada Dog Guides. Taking place in more than 240 communities across Canada, the Walk raises funds to provide life-changing Dog Guides to Canadians with physical and medical disabilities at no cost to them.
Providing specially trained Dog Guides through six distinct programs meeting a wide range of needs, Dog Guides increase the independence, mobility, and safety of their handlers.
