Darlene is being raised and trained to be an assistance dog for someone with a physical disability or who is deaf or hard-of-hearing. In November, 2020, Darlene took the next step on her journey and entered Advanced Training where she’ll learn the skills she’ll need to support her future client.  It truly takes a village to raise a puppy, and you can be part of Darlene’s village and receive monthly updates about her — all donations raised through this page go directly towards our veterinary care fund to ensure healthy, happy puppies. Help support Darlene today.
