Wilton, CT (PRWEB) November 15, 2012
In the spirit of the holiday season and in support of an important cause, Canine Company (formerly known as the Canine Fence Company) has launched an online initiative and will host a holiday event to raise awareness and funds for Guiding Eyes for the Blind, an internationally accredited non-profit guide dog school.
For many years, Canine Company has been a strong supporter of Guiding Eyes, a non-profit organization dedicated to enriching the lives of blind and visually impaired individuals as well as children with Autism by providing them with the freedom to travel safely, thereby assuring greater independence.
On November 7, 2012, Canine Company launched an online initiative to raise funds for Guiding Eyes. During the checkout process on the Canine Company website (http://www.CanineCompany.com), customers are provided with the opportunity to donate a dollar amount of their choice towards Guiding Eyes. Canine Company will then supply a matching gift up to five dollars per customer donation to support the cause.
“Guiding Eyes and Canine Company have developed a unique partnership based on their mutual understanding of the powerful relationships between people and dogs,” said Sue Dishart, Vice President for Marketing and Development for Guiding Eyes. “Canine Company’s continuing support of our work is an example of how a business can help change lives around the world. We are grateful and proud to have been chosen as their partner.”
To further supplement fundraising efforts and to provide community members with a fun activity to share with their families, friends and pets, the Howliday Benefit will take place on Saturday, December 15, 2012 from 12-3PM at 493 Danbury Road in Wilton, CT. This festive event will feature a visit from a Guiding Eyes representative with a future guide dog, pictures with Santa, and more! A nominal fee will serve as a donation to support the work of Guiding Eyes.
