Ottawa, Ontario – Calling all dog owners in the Ottawa area!  You and your dog can go for a walk to support the training of guide dogs and assistance dogs.

On Sunday, May 27, 2018, participate in “Dollars for Dogs”, a fundraiser in support of Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind.  The fun takes place at Andrew Haydon Park, 3169 Carling Avenue.

All well-behaved, leashed dogs are welcome.  You and your pooch can join in the dog social, then walk 4-kms through the park, and stay for free pizza from Little Caesar’s in Stittsville, and plenty of door prizes.   The dog social and registration is from 9:30-10:15am, with the walk starting at 10:30.

Pay $30 on-site to participate or waive the entry fee by obtaining pledges in advance.  Sign up online at guidedogs.ca and create your own profile page to ask friends and family to sponsor you by email or through social media.  For a paper entry form email events@guidedogs.ca or phone 613-692-7777.

The first 100 to show up on May 27 receive a free grab bag with treats for you and your pooch.

It’s a fun day for your dog, but he needs you to get him to the park; Andrew Haydon Park on Sunday, May 27 for Dollars for Dogs.
