Rachel first learned of Animal Aid in the summer of 2016 after losing her beloved pitbull, Apollo to cancer after 10 1/2 years. She has always been an animal lover and also needed to do something to heal her broken heart. After attending an arrival, she knew she wanted to get more involved. In 2017 the caravans were all full so she signed up for the following year 6 months in advance and went on her first caravan in January of 2018. From then on, she was hooked. She currently attends just about every monthly caravan. Rachel is also a strong advocate for bully breeds and hopes to change the minds of anyone who misunderstands them today.
