Santa Claus Is Coming To Town! – Have Santa And Your Pet Captured In An Adorable Holiday Memory While Supporting Canadian Guide Dogs For The Blind
From December 3rd – 18th jolly ol’ Santa will be touring all our locations especially to have his photo taken with your pet! Photos are by donation only, with all proceeds going directly towards the sponsorship of Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind.
Last year, your generous donations of over $22,000 helped sponsor Darryl (the beautiful dog in the photo). Darryl has been training his whole life to be the guide for his now handler, Ken.
Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind has trained and provided guide dogs to Canadians who are blind or visually impaired since 1984. In 2016, Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind will reach a milestone of graduating dog number 800. Their services are provided across the country, and their guide dogs are working for handlers in all provinces of the country, and even in Iqaluit. At an average investment of $40,000 per guide dog, Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind graduates 24-30 guide dog teams annually. Your donations make this possible.
