She Had Been Overlooked At The Shelter For 7 Long Years, Then A Woman Gave Her A Second Chance

Manual SKM medrec

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.


Growing up, Ashley always had a passion for writing. After receiving her Bachelor's in Journalism from Stony Brook University, she now uses that passion to write about the thing she loves most in this world: animals! When she isn't writing, you can find her curled up on the couch with a kindle in her hands and her Guinea Pigs on her lap.
