- Sponsoring a Dog Guide Team
Sponsoring a Dog Guide will cover a portion of the approximately $25,000 that it costs to raise and train a puppy and ultimately match the Dog Guide with its handler. The entire process takes up to two years and your sponsorship helps provide not only the puppy's complete training but also its veterinary care, transportation, room and board for the handler while in residence at the Oakville school for training, and follow-up services during the life of the team. Your support will help the Dog Guide team be partners for as long as 10 years.
Your sponsorship can be directed to the program of your choice:
Hearing Ear Dog Guides
Canine Vision Canada
Diabetic Alert Dog Guides
Service Dog Guides
Seizure Response Dog Guides
Autism Assistance Dog Guides
Dog Guide Champion
A Dog Guide Champion
Lions Foundation is extremely fortunate to have sponsors that are able to make significant contributions. To recognize the generosity of those who sponsor a Dog Guide in each of the six programs, these donors will be honoured as Dog Guide Champions to mark their commitment to Dog Guide graduates.
To become a Dog Guide Champion, sponsorship donations totaling $50,000 must be received within a six-year period for all six programs (effective 2015 and after).
A glass plaque is issued to each Champion to display with pride, and a permanent acknowledgement will be displayed at Lions Foundationís national training school.
