As humans, we are not one dimensional beings. In addition to her passion for dance, Rachel has a deep love and concern for the welfare of animals and it is important to her to use her movement and art to give voice to those without. Project Rescue Relief was created to connect those interested in getting involved in animal rescue to the avenue which best suits their needs and lifestyle. You do not have to go in-shelter to change the lives of animals in need, please click on a link below to explore your possibilities.
Project Rescue Relief began as a campaign to help inform and offer resources to those interested in helping in the efforts to rescue abused, abandoned, and surrendered animals.
Many of these rescue groups, shelters, and sanctuaries also offer adoptions. If you are looking to bring a fuzzy heart into your family, you can be the loving forever home that is needed by so many on this list.
There are a number of ways that you can get involved in animal rescue efforts...
- Transportation of rescued pets to their forever homes (short or long distance)
- Making a donation or sponsoring a rescued animal
- Taking photos of animals for adoption purposes
- Shelter checks
- Evaluation of pets

- Bottle feeding babies
- Behavior problem solving
