Events

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

2017 Fall Open House

Save the date! The Lions Foundation of Canada Dog Guides Fall Open House is scheduled for Saturday, October 14th.
