Hi, I am Rebecca Cruttenden, Team Orphans Director, mom of three adopted children, and owner of Rainy, a 1.5-year-old Bernese Mountain Dog. We walk a couple of miles daily to wear out her puppy energy and keep us active. We partnered with Fido and Stitch for a day of doggy fun, all to celebrate adoptions and bring more orphaned children home!
