One of the great things that Lions Clubs are involved with is providing training for dog guides. These dogs provide services for people with many different conditions. From visual assistance to autism, diabetes and seizure support these amazing animals provide companionship and offer independence to those suffering from many different ailments.
Purina sponsors a national fundraising dog walk event every year in support to increase public awareness and raise funds to keep this program affordable. The walks are usually done on the last weekend in May, but for some reason Waterloo, ON always holds theirs a week earlier. This year the Waterloo walk raised a record breaking $33,000 – congratulations!
