Turtle 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 November, Turtle 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 Turtle’s village and receive monthly updates about him — donations raised through this page support the care and training of healthy, happy puppies. Help support Turtle today.
