The Lions Foundation of Canada Dog Guides hosts its annual fall Open House on Saturday, Oct. 24, from 10 a. m. to 2 p. m. at its Oakville facility.

The family event is designed to create awareness of and raise funds for the services the foundation provides to Canadians with disabilities.

Among other events, the foundation’s trainers will showcase the skills of each type of dog guide, including the newest program addition, Autism Assistance Dog Guides.

“These truly are amazing creatures,” said foundation executive director Sandy Turney. “The open house is a great opportunity for the public to learn about the foundation.”

There will also be tours of the facility, a silent auction and information about how to volunteer or foster a future dog guide. All proceeds from the silent auction go towards providing dog guides at no cost to Canadians with disabilities.

The foundation is a registered charity dedicated to helping Canadians with disabilities in the areas of mobility, safety and independence. For more information on the open house, email nmoncur@dogguides.com .
