Quinn 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, Quinn took the next step in her journey and entered Advanced Training where she’ll learn the skills needed to support her future partner.

It truly takes a village to raise a puppy, and you can be part of Quinn’s village and receive monthly updates about her — donations raised through this page support the care and training of healthy, happy puppies. Help support Quinn today.

Quinn is named after Canada’s two-time Olympic medalist in soccer.  Quinn is the first out, openly transgender and non-binary athlete to compete at the Olympics, the first to medal and the first to earn a gold medal.
