Illustration Friday | Rescue

For this week's theme, I couldn't resist using an older illustration I did a couple of years ago and gave to a shelter near our home. Our dog Connie is a rescue, and my husband and I are big supporters of animal welfare organizations and firm believers in the benefits (and joys!) of adopting rescued animals.

Para o tema desta semana, não resisti colocar uma ilustração antiga que fiz há dois anos atrás e dei para um abrigo de animais perto da minha casa. Nossa cadela Connie foi "resgatada" , e meu marido e eu apoiamos organizações em defesa dos animais e acreditamos nos benefícios (e alegrias!) da adoção de animais.

  6. Perfect take on the theme! And for such an admirable cause. We adopted our cat Riley from an animal shelter... so many animals in need, it always feels good to give back.
    Thanks for sharing.

  8. It's awesome that you brought a rescued dog into your home Monica (and all the other people who commented about that as well). I love it! I wish I didn't have such bad allergies because our house would have a few shelter animals as well.
