Gelato is being raised and trained to be an assistance dog for someone with a physical disability or who is deaf or hard-of-hearing. It truly takes a village to raise a puppy, and you can be part of Gelato’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 Gelato today.
