Find puppy love - and improve someone's life

News Nov 22, 2006 Flamborough Review

Families or individuals looking for a fun, loving project may just need a case of puppy love.

Fostering a future Dog Guide for Lions Foundation of Canada Dog Guides not only offers a unique way to liven up a home, but also makes an incredible difference in the lives of Canadians with disabilities.

Puppies stay with their foster families until they are about one year of age before returning to begin their training as Dog Guides in one of three programs: Canine Vision Canada, Special Skills of Dogs Canada and Hearing Ear Dogs of Canada. Foster families raise the puppies, teaching them basic obedience and socializing them to as many social settings as possible. This includes taking the puppy shopping, to restaurants and riding public transit. Each foster family is invited to the graduation ceremony to see their foster puppy graduate as a Dog Guide with its new handler.

While a puppy is being fostered, Lions Foundation of Canada takes care of all veterinary costs, Nestl Purina PetCare Canada Inc. provides the food and AVID Canada donates micro-chipping and registration. Currently, Lions Foundation of Canada is breeding Labrador retrievers, standard and miniature poodles, and border terriers.

There are several puppies available immediately, waiting to be a part of someone's home.

Those interested in the fostering experience can call Lions Foundation of Canada Dog Guides at 905-842-2891 or 1-800-768-3030.
