Hi! My name is Rebekah Olsen and I’m a freelance writer and dog enthusiast.
I volunteered to write this blog as a way to help raise awareness for rescuing pets through Dogs 2nd Chance Rescue, but even in the first few weeks of our launch, other rescues have found solace and advice in the words on this site, and so we welcome all rescues, volunteers and pet lovers to follow along and contribute.
If you’d like to read more about how I was inspired to create this blog, click here.
In this blog you’ll find four main topics: Foster, Adopt, Training, and Happy Tails. My goal is to make the transition for those adopting or fostering rescues an easy one. This site is also for those who are involved in pet rescue efforts. We all need a place where we can vent, cry, laugh and feel connected with others who share the same passion and love for dogs that we do.
I am not an expert on dog training or care, but I do extensive research as a contributing writer for Nashville Paw magazine in Nashville, Tenn. and other publications around the Mid-South. My suggestions on training, are simply that, suggestions, and they are usually a positive reinforcement method that has worked for me. I hope you will be able to find guidance or even just a little bit of happiness in these words. If you have any questions or comments for me, feel free to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
