May 29, 2016 Purina Walk for Guide Dogs

PurinaWalkforDogGuides2016

Alberni Valley Kennel Club is pleased to support the Lions Foundation of Canada and the Purina Walk for Dog Guides, by participating and donating to the Walk.

We had a chance to meet local Guide Dog, Shadow is a seizure response dog for Kayla Aolick.  He is very special to her and gives her the comfort and care to live a more independent life.  Kayla wants someone else to get the gift of a dog to make their life better.  It takes the donations of many to support the guide dog program.  Every little bit helps.

You can still donate online:  Port Alberni Purina Walk for Dog Guides

Also at the walk,  AV Lions BBQ,  Mini Silent Auction,  Kids Draw and Bosley’s.

AV Kennel Club challenged all Obedience Class participants (past & present) to donate.

The weather was great and there were lots of dogs.  (Congrats to Roberta for walking 4 of her standard poodles.)

If you missed it, be sure to mark it on your calendar for next year.
