I have had the privilege of volunteering for Rachael's Rescue at a couple adoption events. Rachael's heart, energy, and knowledge set her apart from most small rescue operations. It is her ceaseless drive to educate people on the ramifications of irresponsibility regarding domestic and exotic animals that is a wonderful gift to her community.

Rachael's Rescue goes above and beyond to help people in the community. A couple months ago I found a small kitten and after my children fell in love with it I knew we would have to keep it. Unfortunately when it came time to have her fixed I could not afford it, as I'm on a restricted budget. The rescue had helped my mom fix and vaccinated her cat, so I figured id give her a call. Without any hesitation the rescue offered to help. Rachael, the owner I think, drove over 1 1/2 hours to meet me and take our little one to be spayed and vaccinated. That evening she drove another 1 1/2 hours to return the cat to me. To my surprise she also put a microchip in just in case she was to ever get outside. Thank you so much for all that you do Rachael's Rescue!

Rachel's rescue is one of the best rescue groups in North Carolina. Rachel puts her heart and soul into the care and adoptions of these homeless kitty's. She makes sure




all of the cats have vet care and are spay and neutered. I highly recommend Rachel's rescue.

First I want to say, I used to feel indifferent about animals, in particular cats.

But when you hold a baby kitten or see one begin to trust in your presence, it is one of the most peaceful feelings I have felt in a long time.

We went to remote place in NC once, to rescue abandoned kittens. Seeing the conditions of many of the kittens was disheartening. But Rachael's Rescue serves it's part in making a home for the kittens. How can you not appreciate the gesture at a minimum.

Rachael's Rescue has been the sole reason for my new experience. I first went to volunteer for the rescue for a court summon, and ended up loving the experience. It was te very well spent. And I learned that I actually have a passion for animals.

When my husband saw the three kittens at the adoption fair, he knew they belonged with us. Rachael responded to our email inquiry with an hour despite being out of town at a wedding. She met us the next day for a meet and greet. After Rachael reviewed our application, spoke with us and observed the family with the kittens, we were able to take them home. It was immediately clear to us that Rachael was dedicated to the Rescue cause and was committed to sending her 'babies' to good homes. She helped us shop in the store for the kitty essentials. Rachael was available to us when we had questions about their health. She arranged home visits when the kittens needed a check up and for the kittens' follow up shots. Rachael also scheduled their spay/neutering appointments. It was comforting when she met me there as well with all their paperwork ready. We have recommended Rachael to another family as well who I am happy to report now have kitty babies of their own thanks for Rachael's efforts.

Rachael's Rescue is a blessing across the States! Rachael's passion, love and commitment for animals goes above and beyond. She is continuously educating and reaching out to people of diverse backgrounds; ensuring animal safety, proper care and ensuring awareness of spading animals to reduce a vast population of homeless felines (or any other animal for that matter).

Rachael was recently visiting NY State for a wedding; to the Bride's parents surprise 6 kittens and a momma cat made their way into their garage during the wedding hustle and bustle for shelter and food. Rachael was instrumental in ensuring this little feline family were taken care of. She communicated with local agencies to make sure they were not misplaced from their home. Today these kittens have all been appropriately cared for and placed with loving families.

People like Rachael are far and few............... her efforts for aiding this cause are remarkable. She has made many kitty's and families very happy.

I have worked with Rachael for around a year, through Dr. Marty's Vetmobile where I work as a veterinary technician. We have spayed and neutered many of her feline rescues, as well as provided them with veterinary care. She does an awesome job adopting out stray and unwanted animals to wonderful forever homes. She has put her heart and soul into running this rescue, and the amount of adoptions she has successfully completed shows that.

Hard to imagine that ONE person could help ONE HUNDRED felines in peril in ONE year but not when you know how committed Rachael, of Rachael’s Rescue is to a cat and to the people who adopt one of the fortunate felines in her care! And she does it with an angelic demeanor; a quiet resolve, a dedicated spirit and in actions louder than words she brings care, compassion and comfort to these innocent souls coming from scary situations or even worse terrifying high kill shelters. Through my association with Rachael in helping some of these shelter felines to her rescue; I have witnessed felines of all types drawn in fear and hiding in the back of the shelter cells, so at ease and ready to jump right into someone’s arms after coming into her rescue and rehabilitative charms. I have seen Rachael take a chance on a tom tabby from the shelter that took a half years’ time she patiently gave who at first didn’t like a crate or a car or going to the Petco adoption venue, become a regal rider and proud to strut his stuff on harness no less by the time Rachael helped him find his fabulous family. I met a fantastic family, who had adopted a pair of cats from Rachael and upon learning there was another sibling left to the litter, contacted Rachael and said though they couldn’t save the world, they would help save the litter by adopting all Three (of the) Stooges” and that’s like Rachael too; she won’t leave one behind when rescuing and whether these felines come into her rescue sick or scared, plain or long haired, Rachael has not cared, but accepted them all the same. She’s the first to thank someone for their help or adoption or support, attentive to the felines needs and responsive, organized and thorough with interested adopters! Rachael may restore the cats nine lives but most uncanny, she knows them to the n(in)th degree by the time she adopts them into appropriate homes. A feline could not ask for any more; but continued supportive funding of Rachael’s Rescue to continue helping more felines in peril.

We adopted a kitten from Rachel's Rescue last year. Rachel was always available to answer our questions and will to come by when the kitten needed medicine.

When I met Rachael at a pet store over a year ago, I had expressed interest in a Siamese cat to eventually adopt. She was tremendous at following up with me and found the cat of my dreams. It was even more convenient that the rescue provided medical help and advice readily available. I think that this rescue goes beyond their mission to rehome animals because they genuinely care about the health and welfare of them, and is in contact periodically to make sure things are okay. Very great experience, and have been referring people who are interested in adopting cats to this rescue. Thanks again

Rachael possesses an amazing capacity to love and care for animals in need. We had discovered a young barn kitten at a friend's barn who had a serious respiratory disorder and was obviously not going to survive. We enlisted Rachael's help - she came to the site, helped capture the scared kitten, and took it to a local vet for treatment. He recovered, minus the sight in one eye, and is a beloved addition to our home ever since. We could not have done this without her skill, experience, and commitment. Our home is better for this addition - thanks to her.
