Leash of Hope

Join Kristina Shelden, Resource Coordinator at the Personal Injury Resource Centre and her assistance-dog-in-training Sierra (an Alaskan Malamute) for a fundraiser showcase for Leash of Hope Assistance Dogs.This volunteer Society’s purpose is to train and provide assistance dogs for people with disabilities that are higher functioning and often slip through the system; thus resulting in them receiving little or no support. Leash Of Hope acknowledges that an assistance dog can continue to encourage and cultivate the independence of these incredible members of society by making their day to day a little easier.

The show case will feature some amazing rescue-turned-assistance dogs showing off their skills. There will also be free appies and a cash bar.  Tickets are $5 in advance (email Kristina) or $10 at the door.
