Each Dog Guide costs approximately $25,000 to raise and train, yet they are provided at no cost to qualified applicants.

On the last Sunday in May, Dog Walks are held all over Canada to raise funds for this very worthwhile program. This coming year,  Sunday May 27 2018  the Oliver Lions/Lioness plan to make a bigger impact in our community and extend the Dog Walk, and have different functions and activities, in Lions Park. A fun event that we have named Woof-Stock. We plan to have food & fun, raise money and awareness for Dog Guides. 

To do this, we need you!  We invite other service club members and community members to join us in planning Woof-Stock.

Our second planning meeting is January 15, 2018 at 6:30 p.m. (1830) in the basement of the Lutheran Church, 6431 Okanagan St Oliver.

Please join us, and we can work together to help those individuals of all ages who will benefit from a Dog Guide.
