Providing Dog Guides to Canadians with Disabilities

Lions Foundation of Canada is grateful for the support of individuals and organizations who arrange their own events in support of Dog Guides. From golf tournaments,  garage/bake sales, races, rides to dress down days ... the only limit is your imagination! We are 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 support Dog Guides by attending, volunteering or sponsoring any of our events.

Lions Foundation of Canada's Ride for Dog Guides is a fundraising event specially catered to motorcyclists. Ride for Dog Guides was first started in 2009 by the Saltwater Retreads and the Enfield/Elmsdale Lions Club in Nova Scotia. The event has since grown with new locations. All proceeds support the seven Dog Guide programs at Lions Foundation of Canada.

Though each Ride for Dog Guides varies in activities, most follow a scenic pre-arranged route and offer refreshments, incentives, prizes and a poker run component.

Due to the given situation with Covid-19, this year we are conducting a Virtual Ride for Dog Guides. Please help us continue to empower Canadians with disabilities to navigate their world with confidence and independence by providing Dog Guides at no cost to them and supporting each pair in their journey together.

You can help by donating to the Ride for Dog Guides campaign.

Calling all Bowling Leagues and those who love to bowl. Lions Foundation of Canada launched Dog Bowl nationally in the fall of 2013 after adopting the project from the Merritton and Garden City Lions Clubs of St. Catharines, Ontario. Through the support and dedication of these clubs, the event has grown and is now taking place in communities across Canada with all proceeds supporting the Canine Vision Dog Guide program at Lions Foundation of Canada. The Lions Foundation of Canada Dog Bowl provides awareness of people who are visually impaired through bowling fundraisers held across Canada. Through a blindfold or specialized glasses that mimic various eye diseases and disorders, each bowler experiences “seeing” and bowling through the eyes of someone who is visually impaired.

If you are interested in learning more or to inquire about hosting this unique event, please contact Carly (905) 842-2891 Ext. 226 or Email
