Aperçu

It's time for the second annual Go Dogs Go event to raise awareness for Sweet Charity Medical Assistance Dogs!

The humans at Sweet Charity train and place dogs like us to live with kids who have diabetes.  Using our superior sense of smell, we alert the kids and their caregivers to impending danger when their blood sugars drop too low -- an emergency situation. The humans at Sweet Charity also train dogs to be Canine Ambassadors for youth in high schools.  Our canine presence in the schools results in a positive impact on students, staff and the overall school environment. 

Collect pledges from your humans and get every dog you know to do the same!

The Big Day: June 17, 1am-3pm

  • Do laps on the Georgian Bay Secondary School track and maneuver an obstacle course with your humans 
  • Learn from seminars and watch some amazing demonstrations
  • Take your humans to visit displays and booths where they won't be able to resist getting you toys, apparel, and other necessities
  • You can even become certified as a Canine Good Neighbour!
  • From the oldest to the youngest humans, all will find lots to see and do! 

Admission is FREE! 

Tickets for the Canine Good Neighbour Certification Program and Fun Agility course can be purchased at the event, or ahead of time online at the top of this page. Canine Good Neighbour Certification.

All proceeds will help support Sweet Charity fundraising efforts related to placing a medical assistance dog with families impacted with type 1 diabetes. Donations of $20 or more are eligible for a tax receipt. To set up your own participant page and start collecting pledges online, please visit the GoDogsGo Fundraising Page

Our track challenge is a fun activity for everyone, from pet owners to pet lovers to people who want to make a difference in the lives of families affected by type 1 diabetes. Participants are asked to set realistic lap goals based on age, health, and personal goals! Water and fast carbs will be provided and awards are given for exceptional participation. Our goal is to help Sweet Charity's fundraising committee to raise over $5000 to fund the purchase of new dogs and the costs of associated training. Thank you very much for your participation!

À propos de cet organisme

Sweet Charity Medical Assistance Dogs in Barrie, Ontario exists to train dogs to help people who need them.  It’s that simple!  Our Diabetes Alert Dogs program trains dogs and matches them with children with diabetes.  The dogs are diligently trained to recognize low blood sugar and wake the child or get help. Families of children with diabetes bear 50% of the cost of training a dog.  The remaining cost is borne by Sweet Charity.  That’s why your participation matters so much.  Each trained Diabetes Alert Dog is valued at $10,000.  Sweet Charity and you, preparing dogs that are Friends for Life. Founded by Lori Johnson, in Barrie, Ontario, Sweet Charity's mission is now the goal of an entire team, each with a specific role and all with the same goal: give kids with diabetes (and their parents) the chance to sleep all night and do things other kids do, dogs in tow.
