Twenty-year-old Rachel Cohen is the Founder and Executive Director of Hand2Paw. Hand2Paw's mission is to connect homeless teens and shelter animals in a mutually beneficial way. Hand2Paw provides homeless teens with professional skills training and therapeutic experiences. It also ensures that thousands of homeless and abandoned animals get the socialization and training they deserve.
Rachel has loved animals since her parents got her the Eyewitness Companion Guide to Dogs for her 8th birthday. This fateful Hanukkah present, they now realize, was wholly responsible for her career trajectory. She is also a Penn student and is a current Top 15 National Finalist for the Washington Campus Compact's Students in Service Awards as well as the winner of a DoSomething Grant.
