Vespa II is being raised and trained to provide life-changing independence to someone with a physical disability other than blindness or to work with a professional such as a teacher, psychologist or victim services worker to help support a healthy community.  In June, 2021, Vespa II 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 Vespa II’s village and receive monthly updates about her — donations raised through this page support the care and training of healthy, happy puppies. Help support Vespa II today.
