The Pet Valu Walk for Dog Guides was held Sunday at the Fish and Game pond in Morinville.

More than $1000 was raised on Sunday with donations still open for another few weeks.

Members of the Legal Lions Team were on hand to walk the 5-kilometre walk as well as Morinville residents.

Those unable to walk supported the cause with a donation.

The Pet Valu Walk for Dog Guides is a national fundraiser held in approximately 300 communities across Canada.

The Walk raises funds for the Lions Foundation of Canada Dog Guides whose mission is to assist Canadians with a medical or physical disability by providing them with a Dog Guide at no cost.

Although it costs $25,000 to raise, train and place each dog, Dog Guides are provided at no cost to eligible Canadians.
