Providing Dog Guides to Canadians with Disabilities

Lions Foundation of Canada is grateful for the support of individuals and organizations who arrange and coordinate their own events in support of Dog Guides. Golf tournaments, races, rides, sales, dress down days ... the only limit to these fundraisers is your imagination. Our Foundation will be happy to work with you, and ensure a Dog Guide or a future Dog Guide puppy is in attendance – which is always an added benefit! You can also show your support to Dog Guides Canada by attending, volunteering or sponsoring any of the Lions Foundation events.

To request a Dog Guides ambassador at your next event, please download and then fill out the Event Registration Form (right click and 'save link as') and then

Lions Foundation of Canada Dog Guides’ Open House features a tour of the training facility, a silent auction, and live demonstrations from each of our Dog Guide programs. It’s also your chance to learn about our volunteer and foster puppy programs – and to meet future Dog Guide puppies! 

There’s no need to register to attend our Spring Open House, as tours will be held throughout the day on April 7. The Open House is a free event, although our Foundation is accepting donations in support of each of the six Dog Guides programs
