It's nice to have a personal touch in this electronic world. It's nice to have a helping hand in time of need. Two things that I received when I reached out for help from Rachael's Rescue back in end of July this year. On June I had adopted a young male cat for my senior male who had lost his companion of 12 years a year before. Felt it was the right time to find him a friend to keep him company. Went to Wake County Animal Shelter (which is a kill shelter) to adopt a cat that caught my eye. He was younger than I was looking for and a little stoic at the shelter but I decided to take a chance and adopt him. After a few weeks could see it wasn't working out being there was such a big age difference. The new cat wanted to play all the time and my cat is more in the napping by the window stage of his life. I called two pet rescues in my area only getting so far as a voice recording telling me they were full and were not taking in any cats. Was pretty much at my "wits end" at this point for my senior cat was stressed out by this young cat's energy. Had picked up Rachael's Rescue card at a local pet food store a few weeks earlier and sent her an email explaining my desperate situation. Didn't want to return the cat to the shelter for fear he would be put down. Received a quick response from Rachael offering her help to me. Can't tell you what a relief she was to me. She was just amazing, full of compassion and a take charge attitude. Sent her pictures of my young cat and
she put them on pet finder and made arrangements for taking said cat to a pet store to be up for adoption. It was hard to let go of the new cat as I grew attached to him but I knew he was in great hands with Rachael. When I brought kitty to pet store Rachael had a confidence and peace about her while handling the kitty, putting all at ease. She kept kept in touch with me throughout the process and successfully found a wonderful home for the young cat. It was a pleasure to have such a caring, compassionate and smart young woman who clearly is an animal lover and advocate on my side. I will always be grateful for her help and giving heart.
