     I pull dogs from high kill shelters that have the country's highest euthanasia rate. Rosie was one of three dogs I took out of a shelter last week. I briefly placed her in a foster home to get a sense of her temperament, then posted her two nights ago on Rescue Me. The following day, I received a call from a potential adopter who has since met all the screening criteria and passed the home visit check. In one day, Rosie found a great home. I have adopted out several dogs through Rescue Me and rely on this site to save lots of dogs. Thank you!

     Thanks to Rescue Me, we found a wonderful fur-ever home for Emmy. I was so heart broken when I found out I was so allergic to her and I wanted her to have a wonderful loving home. Today, I met Megan and her family and they took to Emmy Rose right away. The son is seven and they instantly bonded. And there are other dogs in the home for Emmy to be able to play with. I am so happy she found a loving home. Thank you to this site for helping me to place this wonderful little girl.

     Our Paxton was adopted by a family six hours away. We had many texts and FaceTime with the to be owners. They are a family that is crazy about animals. They lost their lab to cancer. The whole experience went very well and we just saw pictures of Paxton settling into his new home. It was a very difficult thing to do, but we are confident Paxton is in a great new loving home. We will really miss him, but feel that his new owners will take good care of him. It was a good adoption!! Thanks, Rescue Me.

     I posted a Vizsla puppy here one Saturday and received over 14 calls within 24 hours. Some calls were from far away. He now has a new home with someone only a couple hours away and will be spoiled rotten!! This is a win-win and I'm very glad that Rescue Me was available to help. Thank you very much!

     I had a few inquiries about Max but when I spoke to Max's new daddy, I knew right away he was a perfect fit. Max now lives in a different city and the family is perfect for him. He is happy and healthy and even Max felt comfortable right away with his new family. Awesome! Thanks, Rescue Me.

     I put this Boxer that I was taking care of while the owner was moving his items to a new home out of state, but he never came back for her so I posted her on Rescue Me and I found her a home the next day! I am super satisfied with this site. Great loving and caring people all willing to take a new family matter on and give them a forever home. Hopefully, I won't have to use this site again, but will definitely recommend this site anyone who is looking to adopt or surrender one. Thank You For creating this site!

     I am so thankful for Rescue Me! I had Quincy and Sophie on the site and decided to renew their post. Less than a week after posting them again did I receive an email that led to their forever home! The couple had just celebrated their one year anniversary and had lost both their dogs to old age shortly afterwards. They are retired and semi-retired and had had no children of their own and wanted to round out their home with two new 'babies'. They are the ideal fittest. I waited almost four years to find the most appropriate owners for my deceased mother's dogs, and because of this free site, it was worth every minute of the wait. What a terrific resource. I will continue to use it if and when need-be and promote it to anyone I know looking to place or adopt an animal. Thank you again for helping to facilitate this experience. Sincerely, Melissa

     I'm very happy that I discovered the Rescue Me website. Sadly, I found myself in a position needing to rehome my two beloved Bichons after several years as their parent. I became a widow last year, and this year I realized I need to sell my home and move into a rental condo. I didn't know if a rental condo would offer enough space for my Bichons to enjoy, and to be home alone for so many hours each day. I felt it would be the best thing to send my Bichons to a new loving home, but it was important that they stay together. Eight days after my post, they were adopted by a loving couple who had never been able to have a dog due to the husband's allergies. She works from home and always wanted the companionship that a loyal doggie could offer. Recently, he discovered his allergies were not affected when he was with their friend's Bichons. On a whim, they searched Rescue Me for a Bichon. And they found both of mine! After some discussion over the course of the next week, they finally came to my house to spend some time getting to know my Bichons and of course fell in love immediately. Later that night, they sent me a picture of my Bichons making themselves at home on their sofa. A few days later, the husband called to thank me again because they have brought great joy to their home already. It was a hard decision to make and follow through on, and without Rescue Me I may never have found this wonderful family for my Bichons. Thank you!

     Rescue Me is a great resource for finding and adopting pets. I was first introduced to Rescue Me while visiting my brother. I was looking for a pet for my niece and we were able to adopt a sweet Yorkie that stole everyone's hearts. Returning home, I now use Rescue Me to help find homes for pets associated with Friends of Animals. Case in point, Mini's owner could no longer take care of her and we needed to find a good loving home. Within a week, we had three qualified applicants. Mini is now in the care of a loving couple. Thanks, Rescue Me. We will continue to use you as a resource for our non-profit.

     I posted my Blue Tick Coon Hound and after my first inquiry didn't go the way I anticipated, I took my post down. When it was apparent that I still needed help and absolutely NO operating rescue would even reply to my requests for guidance, I re-posted and within a couple of days, had two interested parties. I'm forever grateful for the avenue that Rescue Me has provided so that people who are looking for pets, had the chance to see mine as an option. Thank you to the new mom and dad of my Blue Tick..... She, and they, have and always will have a special place in my heart. Thank you!

     Precious had been hit by a truck, suffered a badly broken leg, and been shot at as she scavenged, starving, looking for food. She wandered onto our property and I knew I had to do something. I reached out to my community via the internet and wow, the response was incredible. A number of donors came together to cover nearly $1000 in expenses for Precious. Her leg was amputated. She had many return trips to the vet for setbacks. But in a few weeks she was healed, gaining weight, energetic, and happy. The only site I used to post for her adoption was Rescue Me. A man hundreds of miles from me who recently lost his BMC wanted her. We met midway for the introduction and it was love at first sight. Precious went to her forever home that day, loved.

     Dixie was an important part of our lives. We rescued her from the SPCA where she was covered in white marks like scars and quite afraid of everything, obviously, previously abused. My family loved and nurtured her. She is the most loving, dear pet anyone could ask for. My college student children graduated, my husband's job began taking him on long distance trips. I then took a job that required travel. Poor Dixie was staying with her boarding family more than her own, so we decided to look for another loving home for her. Someone with the time to devote that she deserved. We tried to find the right fit for over a year, posting through my vet and various other avenues. But since pit bulls have such an unwarranted reputation, I had no luck finding a proper place for her. Shortly after posting Dixie on the Rescue Me site, she found a loving family to give her the time and wonderful home she deserves. It was so hard to see her go, but we are so happy knowing she is in such a great environment and is loved as a part of her new family. She just moved on to bless another family with her sweet and happy companionship. To anyone considering adopting a pit bull, know that in my experience in a lifetime of pets and farm life, pit bulls are the most loving, nurturing companions you could hope for. Look at Dixie with our rescue kitten- she nurtured him like her own! There aren't many bad dogs, just bad owners that make them that way. Thank you Rescue Me!

     I picked Bella up this Sunday, although I had been communicating with the owner for the entire week to make arrangements and to inquire about Bella's habits and needs. She is a sweet dog with humans and cats. I have two cats and the cats are still suspicious, although Bella simply does not care about them. I am sure if they decide to sleep near her, she would let them. She is happy that I have a fenced in backyard. She actually comes inside to 'call' me to go out and play. I gave her her first bath with no problems. She has a few skin rashes that need care, but she is beautiful. Today we had our first morning walk in the neighborhood. I was closely watching her behavior and the surroundings. We had our first encounter with another dog and she proved to be very territorial already, but very controllable. I am sure we will be great companions. Thank you, Rescue Me.

     Bentley needed a loving home and I was not comfortable sending him to a shelter. Rescue Me helped Bentley find the PERFECT home for him. His new family was in love with him before meeting him and once they met him in person it was an instant connection! So thankful for Bentley's new loving family and Rescue Me for finding him the perfect home.

     It was divine intervention. I talked with my veterinarian about how to find my dog Casper a new home and he told me to check out Lab rescue sites. I went online and found the Rescue Me website right away and posted Casper's photo and bio information. The young couple that adopted him even did their 'new pet' shopping before even meeting Casper! My husband and I are sad about having to let him go, but we are also elated and full of joy that Casper will be well taken care of by sensitive and loving people! Praise be to God!

     Stryker found a FANTASTIC HOME!!! I was hoping they would adopt me, as well, as a package deal! LOL. He will have a summer cottage with a lake and a boat to go on; he will be running a couple times a day with his wonderful new owners.. And he is finally getting the attention and care he never had in his previous homes.. Granted, he is now like a puppy in a 6 year old dog's body. So he will be getting tamed down and has a very experienced Lab family to care for him.. Honestly, we could never have gotten a better home than we did here. Thank you again, Rescue Me!

     Gabby was a local police find, and no one claimed her, so we went on the search for the perfect fit family for her. She was an absolute dream, gets along with kids, cats and dogs. We were looking for a family that had kids, another dog and a fence. This girl was very social and any Husky owner can tell you, a bored Husky, is a dangerous thing because they are escape artists. We did have a criteria we were specifically looking for. We found the perfect family. She will have her own little boy to grow up with, and a high strung Chorkie, who is energetic enough to keep them both occupied. We could not have found a better situation for her to be in. Thank You, Rescue Me!

     I posted two of my foster dogs on Rescue Me. It was easy and productive. My Pittie teenager was adopted by the family that contacted me through Rescue Me. I had several inquiries on her almost immediately (she is awfully cute:). I still have another puppy posted, a lab/terrier, and I'll be posting my next Pittie foster as soon as this one finds her family. Very happy and appreciate the service.

     I posted on Rescue Me because Bella needed more than we could give her. We were foster parents to her to make sure she didn't go to a shelter, but we wanted her to have the life she deserved. Being an Australian Kelpie, and one year old, she needed a lot of activity and challenges and we are seniors. We won't be getting more active. :) I had many responses because she's a beautiful girl, but I wasn't looking for just another 'home' for her. I was contacted by a young man, who had recently lost his beloved best friend (a Kelpie) to a brain tumor. He also had another Kelpie who's very old and has health issues, who was missing her friend also. So I knew this man understood the breed and what was needed. He drove with his lovely girlfriend all the way where we live. There was something almost magical when Bella met her new family. Everyone immediately seemed to 'click' with each other. Everything fell into place. When your head and your gut tells you 'This Is Right'. Although we will miss her very much and it was hard to say goodbye, I know she's going to be very happy. Thank you so much for this site. These wonderful creatures give so much to us and I'm so grateful for people who will 'rescue' a dog who needs a home. Thank you, thank you.

     Hi Rescue Me. Thank you so much for your site, it was quick and easy to post, we had a new family that wanted Si within three days. I am so glad that I was able to put all the cards on the table and still found someone who will hopefully love and care for him instead of putting him down because of aggressiveness. I believe there is a loving home for every animal regardless of its history and sometimes it just needs to be the right setting. I am grateful because when you are able to reach the masses and find that perfect home it gives the animals a chance at a great life.

     Our wonderful German Shepherd (Biscuit) was having behavioral issues that we no longer could handle. He was having issues with our other dog and this was not the first time. We had been trying to find him the perfect home for about six months before finding Rescue Me and it was the best thing that has ever happened to Biscuit! He now lives with his new momma and is an only 'child'. We thankfully have the privilege to still communicate with his new owner and have even been invited to come see him anytime. We are extremely thankful to have found this site- it was easy to use and made me feel like I was in control of who adopted him! I've already recommended Rescue Me to two people who are trying to find a new home for their fur-babies!

     We are the proud 'forever family' of Albie with much gratitude to his previous owners! I fell in love with him as soon as I saw his picture. Upon being chosen to adopt him, we made the long trip to meet him. He was everything his owners said he was. When he met us at the door, he welcomed us with much love and puppy kisses. We are heading back home now as he sleeps contentedly in his crate in the back of 'his Subaru'. We can't wait to get him home and begin our life together. Thank you Rescue Me and to the Millsap family who did such a great job of loving and training him for us. They made a huge sacrifice today and our thoughts are with them. We will send them pictures and even visit them when we return to visit our son and his family.

Luckily, I found Rottweiler Rescue Me, and she is probably in the place that was meant for her.

     We had several requests for information regarding our dog. He has some issues that made it more improbable that we would be able to find the right home for him. However, we were so fortunate to have a most wonderful couple desire to give Romeo a place in their large family of rescue dogs. He has adjusted beautifully and the adopting family already says they love him. I miss my dog, I loved him very much, but circumstances made it impossible for me to keep him. I have to admit he is so much better off with his new family, friends both canine and human and a loving home. Thank you so much for offering a place to seek a home for a beloved pet. All the people who emailed or called were polite and seemed genuine. Thank you Jeff and Rescue Me!!

I have cared for him for four months and am delighted to report that he has now been adopted. I posted him on a Friday and by the next Tuesday he was on his way to his new family. Thank you Sue for wanting him and many thanks to Jeff Gold for making this happen with this site.

     A wonderful Angel needed a companion to take the place of her last companion that went to the doggie rainbow bridge, she almost wasn't able to adopt him due to her landlord being concerned about a new carpet and was going to make her pay a large pet deposit. I informed her he was potty trained didn't even like to go potty in his pen so no worries. The next day she says yes, I 'CAN' adopt Scruffy hooray cause a week before he got beat up by my other dogs, his wounds healed but I was really concerned for his safety. So I met her half-way from where she lives and now he is very happy and spoiled. She loves him and gave him kisses when she picked him up. She is a wonderful woman. Thank you, Rescue Me, for helping him get a forever home

     He is such a cutie, I saved him from being euthanized and had him transported just to foster till he found a new forever home. Today was that day. As he walked up to them wagging his tail, so happy to see them, it was a yes, right off the bat. He seemed like the right fit, as William's wife Joy stays home all day and her dog was put to sleep at 13 years old and I am sure she was lonely. So, this worked out great and Buddy now found his forever home. So happy I saved him; look what this became- a happy ending for him and his new family.

     I lost my 11 year old Peke a couple years ago. Ever since then, I've searched on this site. I saw Zippy and fell in love. My seven year old Peke was very lonely when he lost his sister and I've been searching for a playmate for him. When I brought Zippy home, Bruno was so happy. The two of them are playing and running around having a good ole time together. He has filled a void in my heart since I lost my other dog. I am disabled and spend a lot of time at home and these are not just pets they are like my children. I couldn't have asked for a better rescue. I am so lucky. He is housebroken, he is very playful, and likes to snuggle on the couch with me! He had no trouble settling in with the family. I am so glad, (and lucky) to have found Rescue Me and would recommend it to anyone looking to change their life! As we all know, adopting a pet is not just that, it is a life changing experience! Thank you Rescue Me for my new family member! We will spoil him rotten!!!

     Riley walked into our lives about two years ago. We were not looking for a dog at the time, but were told that he wouldn't have much of a chance at a shelter. We opened our hearts and our home to this playful pup and got back ten fold love and companionship. Our family grew very attached, but we also knew Riley needed regular exercise, that we didn't have time to give. We are thankful and grateful to God and Rescue Me for finding Riley a new home with acres of land to exercise on. Thank you for making this match made in heaven!

     My foster dog, Fisher, was adopted because of my post on Rescue Me! I like the way potential adopter can get in touch with me directly through email or a phone call, no middle man. Kyle contacted me, we met, he fell in love with the Fish and I get updates on FaceBook almost everyday. This is the most effective way I have found to post my fosters. I have had interest on every dog I have posted here. Thanks for creating a simple way to connect with adopters.

     My rescue group, Furever Friends and Rescue posted Red Dog, a Jindo, on Rescue Me Jindo. I got a call from Andrew, very excited and wanting Red Dog NOW! The next step was finding transport. We considered volunteer transport, but that was taking too long. So we opted for paid transport thru P.E.T.S. LLC. Red Dog was safely delivered to Andrew and Melissa this past Saturday. Thank You Rescue Me for helping Red Dog find a forever home.

     Thank you so much for allowing me to put Peanut on here. Peanut has left my yard again, but this time she has gone with Buck. He and Peggy will give her a home where she will never have to be tied up again. Just knowing she is getting to romp freely with other dogs and animals dissolves any sadness at having to let her go. Thank you Buck and Peggy, and also Rescue Me for making it all possible.

     We have long time experience with Goldens and since we have no kids we wanted more than just one in our home. We have three males, but still were looking for the perfect girl for us on this site till we found Gracie. They are all getting along beautifully. Our youngest fell in love instantly with Gracie, who also became his perfect playmate to keep up with him. Gracie is so playful, beautiful and so smart she quick learn the house rules, but as a female, she is the alpha she wants to be served first and it's amazing how quick the boys learn to patiently wait till Gracie get what she wants first. We are proud to have her and feel like a winner chosen as a new parents for her. Thanks to Rescue Me!

     Thanks to Rescue Me my sweet little Raskals found a new loving home. I had about 10 inquiries within three days. We met the second woman to reply and she was perfect for him. She came to our house to meet him, then came back two days later to have a trial 'sleep over'. All went perfect, so she brought him back a few days later. He was so happy to see us but was just as eager to leave with his new mommy! I had not heard of Rescue Me before my google search but I am telling everyone about this great site. Thanks again.

     Thank you Rescue Me, for making it possible for Jax to be adopted by such a loving family. This was definitely an adoption success story. The website is user friendly, and obviously utilized by so many dog lovers. I posted Jax on Monday, had 10 responses within two days, chose the perfect family, and tonight he is loving and being loved by his 'furrever' family.

     Though Fluffo is a senior doggie with health problems, she found a good home through Rescue Me. I am a senior with health problems of my own; herniated disks and chronic vertigo. I could no longer care for Fluffo and she was also in failing health; I didn't want to have her put to sleep. A nice senior man who had recently lost his Pekinese responded to my post. He said that his Peke had gone blind at the end and was also incontinent. He took Fluffo home to his rural property where she will get to live out the remainder of her life with love and dignity.

     I am so very happy to tell you that Bouncing Roxanne B was adopted through Jack Russell Rescue Me by a family and is now a couch potato. I saw a photo of her wearing a Valentine's sweater with little hearts on it, sleeping on a blanket on the family couch and she is well loved by her new parents. She is taken for daily walks by her Mom, and has a big brother Jack Russell named Buster. She gets to ride in the family car, got proper medical care, and even a bath and grooming. I am so grateful to BB's new parents for loving her the way she deserves to be loved. She is one lucky puppy to have a new home where she can experience the best life has to offer. Thank you to Michelle for opening her heart to BB!

     Sweetie was found by a good Samaritan in a local park. She was abandoned and living there for approximately six months. The good Samaritan fed her daily to gain her trust. At first, she would bolt if she saw anyone. At the end of the six months, she would approach to get food and was eating out of the lady's hand. Sweetie was caught by the lady in a small enclosure. Within 48 hours of posting her picture on this site, she had an adopter who was willing to work with her as well as get her medical attention. She is now healthy and has a wonderful forever home. The family loves her and she loves them. Thank you Rescue Me for helping her.

     This sweet dog was dumped on our farm in poor condition. He was underfed and very afraid. None of our no kill shelters would take him so we decided to foster him rather than send him to a kill shelter. After six months with us, he was in much better health physically and mentally and ready for a forever home. We posted Doc's picture and story on the Rescue Me site. Doc is a true tracking and trailing dog. As the deer began to run, so did Doc. While he was very content to come home before bedtime every night, we were told he was seen many miles away from our home by several deer hunters. Due to our proximity to a very busy highway and having already lost a coon hound chasing deer, I could not let that happen again. I called a no kill shelter and explained that we did not have a fence to keep him in and I was worried he would be shot by hunters or run over. They agreed to take him for a while. I did not take my post off Rescue Me and I am very glad. The shelter was very good and Doc was well cared for and loved, no one seemed to be able to meet his needs in our mostly suburban surrounding area. Over the next month, I received several emails about Doc from people who had found his picture and story on Rescue Me. They told me what they were looking for and I candidly explained Doc's strengths and weaknesses with each. One night driving home I got a phone call from a very nice man asking about Doc. His family had, unfortunately, lost their dog previously. They had a sporting dog before and knew the responsibilities that go along with them. They all decided they wanted to rescue a pet and Doc really seemed to fit the bill, the only problem was that he was over five hours away. I didn't think anything would come of it; over 300 miles is pretty far for a dog. This past weekend the same man called me again. He said he wanted me to know he and his wife had driven over five hours to adopt Doc and were on their way back home with Doc snuggled with his new mom all the way. His new dad said they were already in love with him. I am proud to say that after less than two months, such a sweet dog has finally found his forever home with a loving family thanks to Rescue Me! Thank you so much for this service! I can rest easy now knowing Doc has found a good home. I couldn't have done it without Rescue Me! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
