            Fenelon Falls is the place to be Saturday, June 4, for dog lovers who want to help their fellow human beings too.

            The village will be hosting one of 200

“Purina Walk for Dog Guides” fundraising walks that will be taking place across the country.

            Joining in is a way to help provide Dog Guides at no cost to those who need them, and to enjoy a fun, pet-friendly day out in Fenelon with friends, family and/or co-workers.

            It costs about $25,000 to raise, train and place each Dog Guide, all of whom are provided at no cost to qualifying Canadians who need them. Specially selected and trained Dog Guides can help people who suffer from visual or audio impairment, seizures, autism, diabetes, or a variety of other medical or physical disabilities.

            Local volunteers organize each walk with support from the Lions Foundation of Canada—and in our case from Bobcaygeon Pet Valu. Nationally, the walk has raised more than $13 million.

            The Fenelon Walk for Dog Guides will start at the Lions Den building on Veterans Way (near the community centre). Registration is at 9 am and the walk starts at 10 am.

            More information or registration forms are available from Marlene at Pet Value (705-731-7305), from Ken Lemasurier (705-887-4504 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.), or online at purinawalkfordogguides.com.
