On this day, as we honor the mothers (and grandmothers, great-grandmothers, aunts, wives and sisters) in our lives, we think about the compassion, kindness and generosity that comes with motherhood.
Pictured here are Izzy and her pups! Izzy and her litter were rescued by Cochise Canine Rescue (CCR) in southern Arizona. CCR saves dogs on euthanasia lists from local community control facilities. They also spay, neuter and help socialize dogs to prepare them to be placed in their forever homes.
A NAVS Sanctuary Fund grant was awarded to help with the cost of providing medical care and for the spay and neutering of Izzy and her adorable puppies.
