Support our Canines in the Classroom dogs who are on the frontline supporting youth mental health.
We hope you will join us for our virtually paw-some event. We might not be able to paddle or walk together but collectively we are all going to create some waves.
On Saturday, August 21nd, 2021 grab your paddles and join COPE for a fun day wherever you are! If paddling is not for you, consider joining us by just walking with your family and dog. Post your photos on facebook and Instagram using #buddypaddlessimcoe. Let’s flood social media with our paddles and smiles. More than ever COPE needs your support!
Here’s How it Works!
Check out and pick one of our 21 dogs below that you would like to walk or paddle for. Fundraise for your dog all you can. There is no minimum or maximum, but when you see our dogs’ faces, you will want to go for it! We cannot wait to see which one of our dogs is Buddy’s Bestie of 2021. On August 21, 2021 post your photos to facebook or Instagram #buddypaddlessimcoe.

He wasn’t a dog.”

International Assistance Dog Week (IADW)
Man’s best friends are called so because of their loyalty and dedication toward their owners. Service dogs take that dedication even further, helping people with disabilities navigate their everyday lives. International Assistance Dog Week, celebrated from August 1 to August 7 this year, is meant to honor service dogs and their trainers. Together, they have improved countless lives across the globe.
