She Spent Her Whole Life In A Shelter Where No One Wanted Her. Then, She Met HER.Ashley Maisano
Rachel, a nine-year-old Labrador-hound mix, has lived in a shelter since she was two years old. She was found as a stray and brought to Yukon Animal Control in Oklahoma, and was then rescued by the Pets and People Humane Society.
When she first arrived at the shelter, she was extremely energetic and didn’t really get along with other dogs or cats. As she’s grown older, she has calmed down and is now really good with other animals.
Rachel had sadly been overlooked at the shelter for a long seven years. She had so much love to give, but no one wanted to give her a chance. But finally, after all this time, Rachel has found her furever home!
Susie’s Senior Dogs, an organization that helps older dogs from different shelters get adopted, featured Rachel on their Facebook page. That is when Rachel’s new mom, Laura, saw her and knew she had to have her.
Her new mom says Rachel is wonderful and as perfect a dog as she has ever had. After spending her whole life at the shelter, Rachel has a lot of lost time to make up for. Now, she gets to go for car rides, walks, and even go to her mom’s office with her. Thank goodness she will get to live out the rest of her life in a furever home!
