Annual Purina Dog Guide Walk at Whiffin Spit this Sunday Father’s Day 10:30 – 2pm sponsored by Sooke Harbourside Lions Club.
There will be our infamous hotdogs for sale/ cool beverages and Dog cookies!
Please come walk with us to help raise money for those in need of assistance dogs through the Lions Foundation for seeing/ hearing/ autism/ seizures/ diabetes and general assistance dogs. All done through donations.
Special Guest will be our very own local dog guides like “Bootsy” with Raven and perhaps other surprises. Contests for dogs too, to win some prizes.
The Purina® Walk for Dog Guideshas gained steady momentum over the past 30 years, last year raising more than $1,195,000 nationally. Thanks to lead sponsor Nestle Purina Pet Care, 100 per cent of funds raised go directly to Dog Guide programs, offsetting the cost of breeding, training and placing Dog Guides, and allowing the organization to provide them at no cost.
The walk is a family and dog-friendly event, suitable for all ages and abilities.
