When our beloved Odin passed this past March we all felt that there was a huge hole left in our hearts. We felt like we wanted to share the space that we had in our hearts and home with a kitty that needed a home. We fell in love with April when we were shopping for supplies for our other pets at the Petco in Holly Springs. We applied for adopting her and were approved. From her first day here, she made herself at home and warmed right up to us as well as senior kitty, Fluffims and our four pups. She enjoys the master bedroom bed as well as sitting on the windowsills, to keep an eye on the birdfeeders. I highly recommend Rachael's Rescue as a fine place to adopt. April, (since named Meeko by our daughter) was tested and vaccinated before adoption and has been a very healthy kitty. We couldn't be happier!

When our cat of 18 years passed this spring her 14 year old house mate Mulligan was lonely. It was evident that it was time to get another cat. We looked at Petco in Holly Springs and I fell in love with Eddie a short hair tuxedo kitten. My kids fell in love too, but also with his sister and on that night two kitties found their forever home. Mulligan was not sure of the kittens at first, but now we all couldn't be happier!
P.S. Eddie has payed it forward and has found a stray kitten who now also lives with us!

There are so many choices when you are adopting a pet. Make the first one a great one and adopt from Rachael's Rescue. We chose to adopt a special needs kitty over one year ago. Rachael has worked to raise money for needed medicines and brought them to our door. Today, our kitty is thriving, happy and healthy. There is no doubt she is deeply passionate about animals and will find the right home for each pet. We love you Rachael. Meow!

I have worked with Rachael since the beginning litters she was "just going to help" to waiting for the official papers to now just shy of placing 100 young cats. !!! The amazing part is if I remember she has done this in less than 2 years. Rachael finds good homes for these cats. I know, I meet many on their neuter day. She not only gets good homes but gets them quick. I've never seen such an adoption date. Phenominal!

The Myers' Family just wants to take the time to describe our amazing experience with Rachel's Rescue! In May of 2013 we adopted an adorable most loving little boy kitten! His name is Kai. When we began the adoption, Rachel kept in touch with us, and communicated so wonderfully! We met her at our local Petco to adopt Kai. The adoption fee was very reasonable. It covered all vaccines, micro chip, and the neuter. When we brought Kai home, he did really well adjusting to his new family. We had also recently adopted a female kitten as well and they loved each other. We also have a 11 year old dog who also took well to the kittens. Shortly after adopting Kai, we notice some discharge in his eyes and nose. He also had diarrhea, and some fungal issue on one ear. We contacted Rachel with all these issues and she immediately came to our home to pick up Kai to see the Vet. She was so nice!!! She made sure all Kai's health issues were taken care of. When you rescue kittens and then adopt them out you have no idea where they came from and issues they could have. Poor Kai also had hernia which we were already aware of when we adopted him. Rachael came anytime Kai needed to re visit the Vet, and made sure it was all covered. We did not have to cover the expense. The Vet she uses is so great as well. The Vet gave all necessary eye drops, antibiotics, and any meds needed to make Kai well. Rachel would even email me to check in on Kai from time to time. If there was any other medications needed she would bring them to us. Kai is now 8 months old and the most sweetest loving Cat. Once all his issues cleared up, he stayed healthy and we have not had any problems since. I love that Rachael was so involved and caring about Kai. She truly loves animals and wants to see them in a good home and well taken care of. If we ever adopted again, I would definitely go through her rescue. I would also highly recommend to adopt an animal through Rachael's Rescue! We want to thank Rachael's Rescue for allowing us to bring a special Kitten into our home. We love him so much. Kai is truly apart of our family!
