The Lions Club of Nelson will be holding a hotdog and bake sale in the Safeway Parking lot on Anderson Street, Saturday (May 10) from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

All proceeds will go to Lions Foundation of Canada Dog Guides.

The Lions Foundation of Canada trains six types of dog guides.

Dog Guides for Canine Vision (for blind or visually impaired), Hearing Ear (for deaf or hard of hearing), Autism Assistance (for children with autism), Service (for physically disabled), Seizure Response (for those with epilepsy), Diabetic Alert (for Type 1diabeties).

These Dog Guides are provided at no cost to eligible Canadians from coast to coast. It costs on average $25,000 to raise, train and place these dogs.

The foundation does not receive any government funding and relies on donations from individuals, service clubs, foundations and corporations for its funding.
