Thanks to Rachel Lefkowitz for sharing the rescue story of her dog Loki, the newest OBOL Animal Ambassador!
In June 2014, my then-boyfriend convinced me to go to North Shore Animal League in New York to “just look at the puppies.” Little did I know that I would walk out of there with the dog would become my sidekick and the absolute love of my life.
The minute I met this nervous, confused little dog, we shared an instant bond, and I knew I couldn’t leave her at the shelter.
Adopting Loki is the best thing I have done, and even though circumstances have changed since that day, I am forever grateful for her. She helped me through the most difficult time in my life, kept me sane and smiling, and gave me a purpose when I felt like all was lost. She even gave me the courage and strength to move to a new state where I knew no one. We are currently both living our best lives together in Baltimore, MD!
