Assistance Dog Helps First-Time Mother

"Being a mom is rewarding, and also really hard. That’s a universal truth, but adding disability to the dynamic makes some of the day-to-day responsibilities appear nearly impossible. Canine Companions has matched me with two different and perfect assistance dogs. The first supported me as a daughter learning to be independent, and the second helps me overcome those impossibilities in order to be the mom my daughter deserves," says two-time Canine Companions graduate, Alex.

On behalf of all the mothers you’ll help to face down the impossible, thank you!"

Donate in honor of a mother in your life today and read Alex's full story about being a first-time mom with a disability.
