Ky is being raised and trained to provide life-changing independence to someone with a physical disability other than visual impairment or to work with a professional such as a teacher, psychologist or victim services worker to help support a healthy community.

In February, 2023, Ky took the next step in his journey and entered Advanced Training where he’ll learn the skills needed to support his future partner.

It truly takes a village to raise a puppy, and you can be part of Ky’s village and receive monthly updates about him — all donations raised through this page go directly towards our veterinary care fund to ensure healthy, happy puppies. Help support Ky today.

Ky is named after Kylie “Ky” Masse from Toronto, Ontario, who brought home four medals in swimming – two silver and two bronze – from the Tokyo Summer Olympics.
