Providing Dog Guides to Canadians with Disabilities
Purina® Walk for Dog Guides

What is the Purina® Walk For Dog Guides?
The Purina® Walk For Dog Guides is a national fundraising walk held in more than 200 communities across Canada. It raises funds to help train Dog Guides for Canadians with disabilities. Each Walk is organized by local volunteers with support from Lions Foundation of Canada. To date, the Walk has raised more than $10 million! Most Walks have already taken place, but a few are scheduled for later this summer and the fall. For more information or to find the Walk closest you, please visit www.purinawalkfordogguides.com


Why walk for Dog Guides??
  • To help provide Dog Guides at no cost to the growing number of Canadians who need them.
  • To enjoy a fun day out in your community. Walk with your friends, family and co-workers. The event is pet friendly but you don’t need a dog to participate.
  • Everyone is welcome – all ages and abilities – and you are not required to complete the route to participate.
  • Everyone is a winner! 100% of the funds you raise goes towards this important program and you could earn an incentive prize.


  • With the generous support of sponsors, both at the national and local level, 100% of the funds raised go directly towards the Dog Guide programs and ensure that the Purina® Walk For Dog Guides fulfills its mission to change lives. Our national sponsors include: Nestlé Purina Pet Care, Fido, and WestJet.
