For the last 17 years the Port Jefferson Lions Club has sponsored a guide dog. This year however, they are having difficulty raising the necessary funds for this important cause. The current cost to sponsor a guide dog is $6,000.00, and they are presently $3,000.00 short of their goal.

If the Lions Club can find 30 community members to donate $100.00 each, they could sponsor a dog again this year. If you would like to help, please send your donation to the Port Jeff Lions Club, PO Box 202, Port Jefferson, NY 11777.

The Club gets the right to name the dog, usually a nickname to honor a Lion member. Last year the guide dog they sponsored was named Sparky for a recently departed Lion member. This year they would like to name the dog in honor of a 9/11 hero firefighter or police officer. You can include a name suggestion with your donation.
