Petition Opposing the Service Animal Standards

As the service animal standards are proceeding to development, GDUC is continuing to push back against them. This time we've created a Petition on change.org. Please support our effortt and tell the Canadian Foundation for Animal-Assisted Support Services and the Human Research Standards Organization that guide and service dog handlers neither need nor want the undue interference in our lives that the standards represent. We also encourage you to promote the petition by sharing it any way you can. Post it, email it, tweet it, text it, and generally talk it up - anything you're willing to do will help us make a difference.

Pitter Patter Let's Get Atter

What can we do together without being together? How about we get out and walk and enjoy the summer? How do we do this together you ask? We will simply start walking on June 1 and finish on August 31. Track your kilometres daily any way you can, E.G., phone, watch, Braille slate, ETC. At the end of each month you will Email Your Kilometres for the month, or call them into Kim Bannatyne at 204-789-9900.

This event is strictly for fun, it is not a competition. The only person you'll be competing against is yourself. Don’t have a dog right now? Simply borrow a few hairs from your neighbour's dog or guide dog And tape them to your cane.

There will be a social on September 3 where we'll share the results of the walk and hold a draw for prizes. The prizes include a GDUC hoodie, a GDUC sweatshirt, and 2 GDUC t-shirts.

There is a $10 fee to cover the cost of the prizes. Registration starts now and ends on June 30. To register, simply Email Your Name and Dog's Breed, or phone Kim Bannatyne at 204-789-9900. You can pay your $10 fee bye e-transfer to treasurer@gduc.ca, being sure to include your name and the word walk in the message. You can also Pay by PayPal please activate the Send link on PayPal's website to start the payment process.
