Providing Dog Guides to Canadians with Disabilities
Sponsorship Opportunities
There are many opportunities to provide support to the Dog Guide program as a partner or sponsor. For more information, please visit Corporate Giving
  •  Sponsoring a Dog Guide Team

    • Sponsoring a Dog Guide will cover a portion of the $35,000 that it costs to raise and train a puppy and ultimately match with its handler. The entire process takes up to two years and your sponsorship helps provide the puppy's complete training and veterinary care, as well as the transportation and accommodation for the handler while in residence at the Oakville training school. Your support will help the Dog Guide team be partners for as long as 10 years, with a life-time of follow-up.

      Your sponsorship can be directed to the program of your choice:

      Canine Vision Canada
      Diabetic Alert
      Facility Support
      Seizure Response
      Autism Assistance
      Dog Guide Champion
      $ 4,000
      $ 6,000
      $ 8,000
      $ 9,000

      A Dog Guide Champion

      Dog Guide Champions are those who sponsor a Dog Guide in each of the six programs (excluding Facility Support). To become a Dog Guide Champion, sponsorship donations totaling $50,000 must be received within a six-year period for all six programs. There is a permanent acknowledgement at Lions Foundation’s national training school to recognize the generosity of these donors.
