Lions Foundation of Canada Dog Guide Program:

Since 1983, the lives of over 1200 men, women and children from the age of 8 to 84, have been enriched by the services of specially trained Dog Guides from Lions Foundation of Canada.
These Dog Guide "handlers" from as far east as St John's, Newfoundland, and as far west as Victoria BC., have experienced the enrichment of their lives through newfound freedom and independence with the companionship and assistance of a devoted Dog Guide partner.
Lions Foundation of Canada invites you to become an active supporter and participant in this hands-on humanitarian service.

Foster Puppy Program

Lions Foundation of Canada receives dogs as puppies for its Dog Guide programs from its own breeding program, and from generous breeders. At eight weeks of age, puppies are placed in foster homes for approximately one year.


The foster family is asked to raise the pup, socialize and teach proper house manners and basic obedience, while exposing the pup to as many different situations, experiences and people as possible.
Puppy training manuals and staff support are provided to the foster family as a guide for the proper development of the puppy.


Applicants must live within a reasonable distance of either Oakville or Breslau. A member of the Puppy Program Staff will contact anyone interested in fostering to arrange an in-home evaluation Please visit their site for more information about how you can be a part of this program:www.dogguides.com/programs/programs
