     Rescue Me was a blessing. I cared for a Jack Russell for a short time. She was my best friend. I came to an impossible decision that I had to find her another family to take her as I could not. I didn't want her to be mistreated or an outside dog. This site helped me find a good home.

     Thank you Rescue Me! Within a very short time after posting Paopei, she was adopted to what we believe a loving family. Unfortunately, my daughter-in-law's job required her to travel a lot, leaving her with me and I could not manage her. We were thankful for the family that came along and adopted her and giving her a happy home.

     After one year of unemployment, I decided I needed to find a new home for my five year old male Bichon, Frankie. It was important to me that he went to the home who loved dogs and would give him the attention he craves. I asked my vet how to find the right place and she suggested a breed specific rescue site. One google later I was on Rescue Me! I posted a Frankie's photo and answered questions regarding his health, temperament, etc on Wednesday night. Inquiries came via email in less than one hour, phone calls began the next morning. The first caller asked all the right questions: vet, heart worm prevention, how he got along with other dogs. And she owned a female Bichon one year older than Frankie! We arranged to meet Friday afternoon, the soonest we each could fit it into our schedules. The two dogs immediately took to each other, playfully chasing through the playground. I answered more questions about Frankie, how he handles different situations, and learned more about the home and the people he would live with. Then we sent him, his kennel and heart worm medicine off to enjoy his new family! I'm very thankful to this wonderful website for putting me in touch with so many good people who love dogs. I had many calls and offers that would have fit well with Frankie's needs. This makes it somewhat easier to let go of this sweet dog who has been a part of my life for five years.

     Within just a few hours of posting Kalli, we had several emails and calls about her. The very first person who contacted me ended up taking in our sweet Kalli. Though it was hard to part with Kalli, I couldn't be happier with the family that now owns her. Thank you, Rescue Me, for providing a positive experience. -Pennie

     Our previous lab died from old age and arthritis complications, and we wanted another yellow lab. We are particularly fond of lab mixes and would only consider a rescued dog. They are always so appreciative of having a loving home. Buddy is lying at my feet as I type this. The description written on Rescue Me was absolutely accurate, and I was very pleased that my email was quickly and completely answered by the owner. We are most appreciative of the service! Thank you!

     Many thanks to Rescue Me and coordinators Neil Banks and Courtney Helm for making the adoption of Barli and Natasha into their furever home and pleasant and enjoyable process. As a volunteer with the local rescue organization, I am well aware of all the time and effort that goes into properly vetting new owners and getting the animals into proper homes. My new 'children' are settling in wonderfully and I couldn't be happier.

     MY beautiful Blanco was adopted and now has a new home. He did not like sharing affections with my smaller pets, so I contacted Rescue Me and received so many requests for him. The lady who got him really had the best location and reasons for acquiring a Samoyed. She had raised as many as 35 Sammy puppies and found homes for all of them. Several years later, when she missed these big fluffy dogs, she contacted Rescue Me and we spoke on the phone. Her yard was fenced, a total of 10 acres comprised her property, and when they first met, Blanco was interested in everything, including her bathtub! I was impressed with her knowledge and reassured that my 10 year old would have a wonderful life. She had grandchildren living nearby as well as their horse in an adjoining pasture. Happily, I was able to combine the visit with another visit with my sisters-in-law, about an hour drive away. I was concerned about their getting along and planned to bring the dog back with us, if it didn't work out, when we left a few days later. So many of the folks interested in adopting did not want to describe their location and other details. I am happy I was able to be choosy, and be able to pick the perfect family. I'm so thankful for this service.

     Thanks to Rescue Me, Caesar found a wonderful and loving fur-ever home this past weekend! I am happy to say that Caesar connected right away with his new family. Wow, that really made me happy and even more convinced that they deserved Caesar. It truly was love at first sight with the two of them! Since then we have received updates and very cute pictures of him with his new family. Honestly, every time I get a new picture of Caesar, I am so touched by the fact they are still thinking of us!! They are so sweet. Here are a few things they have said so far about Caesar: 'love him to pieces, he is the best thing that has happened to us, and we are spoiling him to death'. Yes, I know what you are thinking... What a beautiful love story! It was a very sad day for my family when we gave Caesar away, but knowing that he was adopted by another loving and sweet family makes us so happy!! Words just can't say how thankful and happy we are with Caesar's new family! They are the best! Last, but not least Caesar and I want to thank you, thank you, thank you Rescue Me, your site is awesome!!

     Zeera has not a perfect dog, but for Jayso she is. She was indeed adopted and I did the house check and had a contract filled and signed and she is very happy in her new home. I have posted two dogs on Rescue Me and adopted out both dogs here. 100% success rate. Thank you very much!! I do want to add that after getting to know Zeera, I knew she needed a special family with knowledge of Pit Bulls and I feel that this family qualified. Zeera is the most loving dog I have ever met and she will be the best part of their family.

     I had this wonderful dog, Coco, that was in a boarding and training school for close to a year. Due to two Alpha females in my home and continuous fighting, we had to give Coco up. I had hoped to bring her back into our home when the other female left, but that never came to fruition. About two months ago, a lovely couple saw her picture on Rescue Me, and contacted me. I took them to the training facility where Coco was being boarded, and introduced them. They were very interested, but one of the caveats for adoption that I had put into place, was that anyone interested in Coco needed to go through five training sessions before being allowed to take her home. This was put into place because of the level of training that Coco had already been given. This lovely couple complied, and after three weeks of visiting her on the weekend and participating in their own training, they took her home. Several wonderful pictures later, I can happily say that Coco is where she belongs. After so many months of being boarded, though in very good and friendly hands, she has now found a new and truly loving family. Thank you Rescue Me for posting our story and helping to turn this sad story into one with a very happy ending.

     Our darling Baskerville found a wonderful new family and great home. We were determined to do everything we could to find the perfect place for our little man and we are incredibly grateful for the service Rescue Me provided. He won the doggy lottery! We have formed a bond with the new family and can see through pictures and video's what an amazing time Bass is having exploring the great outdoors - far better than being cramped in a small apartment. We couldn't be happier! Thank you everyone and we wish the same success for all the adorable and deserving Redbones.

     Thank you so much for keeping Rescue Me active. I post purebred and difficult to place shelter dogs on your site and have received much success. The latest success story is Mo, a 7-year old Rottweiler who entered the shelter with heartworms, but was treated and is very healthy now. We had four leads for him from Rescue Me and one adopted him recently. It was a perfect, breed-experienced family! Thank you again for allowing us to post.

     After posting Saint Bernards on this site, I am glad to announce both dogs were adopted. Both animals enjoy medical aid cover provided by their owners and both are very happy where they are. The male is on a farm with several other dogs and he is now in charge. The female is also on a farm not very far from where we live. I saw the dog last week for the second time since adoption and she looks absolutely beautiful. Thank you to 'Rescue Me!' You guys are doing a great job.

I believe with all my heart that they will enjoy her, love her, and care for her as I would. Thanks to all who share their love, life and time with rescues. You are AWESOME!

I posted Sancho on Friday and started receiving calls and emails within the hour. Today is Sunday and he is with his new family. The great thing I love about it is Yvonne and her family said we can visit him sometimes and she will send pictures. I want to call now to see how he's doing but... Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! Rescue Me rocks! So grateful for your wonderful site and will definitely tell others about it.

     The day after we posted Naomi to be adopted, we were contacted by a great lady who had lost her JRT. She had two other dogs, and lots of other animals. The dogs all got along and this lady has lots of land, and a rural setting. It was a great fit and knowing our girl has a new home is such a great fit makes surrendering her just a little easier.

     As a Humane Society, we are overloaded with requests from individuals regarding re-homing. We are not a shelter, but rather a low-cost clinic, pet food pantry, dog training facility that works to keep families together so surrendering to a shelter is the last resort. After having discovered this fabulous resource, I've referred a few pet owners to Rescue Me. Cooper was tied to our fence in the middle of the night, but I just couldn't send him to the county shelter, because his age would probably have prevented them from easily adopting him out. He also had various health issues that needed addressing, and some behavioral problems with larger dogs (only). He is such a love and perfectly behaved in every other way. Luckily, our veterinarian was able to bring him to a healthy state, and our dog trainer was able to work with him for a few weeks. We received many inquiries via the Rescue Me website. All of the interested parties were quality pet owners with a sincere desire to help Cooper. I can't tell you how impressed i was with the efficiency of your service, as I started receiving those inquiries almost immediately. As it turned out, Cooper's new family lives right here in St. Augustine. They are a perfect match for Cooper. Thank you, Jeff Gold, for creating this site. It is such a wonderful alternative to shelter relinquishment, as it allows the pet owner to have control over who adopts their furbaby.

     I posted a picture and description of a stray Bluetick Coonhound my husband found in the woods as needing help to be rescued and was contacted by a gentleman about possibly adopting her that very day! Later the same week, we met and the gentleman fell in love with the doggie and decided to take her home with him! Without Rescue Me's website and ability to post a blog and picture for free this never would have happened. I felt more comfortable having someone who was registered with Rescue Me's e-mail alerts adopt the doggie because I knew that they cared since they took the time and effort to register an interest in adopting a particular breed. Plus, the fact that I don't have a no-kill shelter in my area and therefore was very limited on my options for finding the doggie a good home made this success story that much sweeter! Thanks Rescue Me for helping my stray doggie find a wonderful home!

     I have found that Rescue Me is one of the most successful rescue organizations. When I posted Tigger, a Terrier mix, I had so many inquiries. While I found a foster home for her I connected with other nonprofit organizations that helped me find her forever home. Until I was thrust into the world of rescuers, I had no clue the dire need for millions of helpless animals. What I am trying to say is donate, donate, donate as often as you can because every penny helps these beautiful creatures find their home. Thank you Rescue Me. -Carol

     Roadie received so much interest. Rescue Me was the best site for quality persons seeking to adopt. I had so many requests for Roadie and many applications submitted. We have found his new family, but he is still with us as he has been re-habing with us and the new family has been moving into their new home, so I wanted to keep the post up until he was with the new family and the contract was signed and it was a done deal, then at that time I would post his adoption. Roadie is a Great Lab-a mix of Yellow Lab and Great Dane. Many like this mix, so he was fortunate to have several options to choose from and we were able to be really picky and get just the right fit for him. Thank You Rescue Me and Jeff Gold for creating this great site to help wonderful rescued pets find their happy ever after homes! We are very pleased with this site and the quality of the animal lovers that we have encountered through this site! Blessings! Zen of ZenRescue

     Thanks to Rescue Me for helping to find 'Rocky', a beautiful, young black Lab, a home recently. He has come a long way since arriving at the shelter about six months ago. He was so thin from having been neglected that you could count his ribs. Not any more! A fine looking guy who recently was adopted into a home with a 10-year-old boy who, because of family circumstances, had been quite sad lately. Not anymore! Gratifying to see the smile on the young boy's face as his family was finalizing the adoption!

     I am so happy to report that Sadie has found a wonderful home with a Canadian family. They have two children and Sadie now has a Saluki sister to play with. These lovely people have three rescued animals (their Saluki plus two cats) all adopted from the Qatar Animal Welfare Society. After their time in Qatar is finished, they will head home to Canada with all of their animals. Happy Ending!!!

     I found my Westie poodle mix on Rescue Me and though she was overweight and had a yeast infection in her ear and on her skin, she has happily lost weight, using the treadmill, and learning to sit in the presence of distractions. She happily prances about and plays 'hide the toy,' walks next to me on the leash, comforts me when I'm sad, and though she doesn't like when I leave her presence for short periods to go to another room, she quiets down from whimpering fairly quickly. i really enjoy her and plan to start agility classes with her.

     We just wanted to let you know that, with the help of Rescue Me, we were able to find a loving family to adopt Duke. It was love at first sight. Your site made it easy for us to post Duke's information safely and simply. Within a day, we received notifications of interest. Matching up the hopes of the families with what we felt would meet with Dukes needs was made easy through your system. Now we are sure Duke is with a family who will love and care for him. Thank you so much.

     I know God's hand was in this because without Rescue Me, Dash would not be here. His journey has a happy ending... Dash's mommy is a full-time missionary and she could not take him with her. I fostered him until I found Rescue Me and posted his information. After many inquiries and a one-hour adoption attempt, Dash now has a new Mommy and Sister-Dog (Carly)!!! We both drove two and a half hours each way for them to meet. They are a perfect match! His new Mommy is totally in love with him and my heart could not be happier!!! ~ My donation to you cannot begin to cover what Dash's forever home is worth~ Thank you ~ THANK you ~ THANK YOU RESCUE ME!!!!!!!! -Jeannnie

     Thank you RESCUE ME and Paws and Stars Pet Rescue for helping me adopt Miss Amber. I had been getting regular email alerts from Rescue Me and looking for sometime. When I saw Amber, I just knew she was the one. The whole process was easy and now I have a great little Chihuahua! This was a great experience and I encourage others to look into saving a sweet rescue, they show their gratitude. A big THANK YOU also to the professional rescue women at Paws and Stars for their tireless and selfless devotion to finding these rescues new homes.

     Two and a half years ago, one month after burying my 14 year old Cattle Dog, Sammie, I rescued Dingo from 'Rescue Me'. He was nine years old and had lost his owner to death. No one looked at him because it right before the holidays and everyone wanted puppies. I knew I might only be able to give him four or five years, but he deserved to finish his life in a forever home. Thanks to Pilots for Pets, he was flown to a small airport near where I live. Dingo was the most incredible dog ever. He took to me immediately and we were inseparable. Sadly, he developed a tumor. We removed it, but it was bone cancer. He continued to live a happy life with shots and pain medicine until two weeks ago when the cancer erupted again and he went completely paralyzed in the rear section of his body. I stayed with this precious baby while he went to sleep. Although I was grieving badly, I still clicked on the Rescue Me links. I wasn't ready. Then two days ago a sweet, red speckled Australian Cattle dog popped up and unbelievably, she was from where I live. You have to understand, our town is super rural so it's unlikely you'd ever see anything come up here. I contacted the family that had rescued 'Daisy' and again unbelievably they live off the same road as I do only about four miles away. We went to meet Daisy yesterday and again it was love at first sight. She came home last night to her forever home and had acclimated to the home and yard as if she had been here forever. I could never do anything but rescue. Thank you for all you do with your site to help these wonderful companions.

She was able to confirm he wasn't and gave me details about his disposition. He's a wonder addition to our home and we wouldn't have found him without the help of Rescue Me!

     We found Locket running through the park and the street through our neighborhood. She was matted, skinny and scared, occasionally sitting in the middle of the street stopping cars. While waiting for animal control to come, we coaxed her into our backyard. We gave her a bit of food and water, and eventually a bath! After posting her on Facebook, Craigslist, and the humane society website, I posted Locket on Rescue Me. After checking references from her vet and groomer, we adopted her out to a sweet family who will love her well. We'll miss her, but she's off to a lifetime of love.

     Hi Jeff, I rescued the sweetest boxer boy on Rescue Me. I lost my previous boxer boy last year. He was my soul dog-mate. He was the perfect buddy and I have missed him every day since and will continue to miss him until we meet again. I have been to the local Humane Society for a couple months now and our local SPCA and have not been able to find that connection or for that matter a boxer. I also submitted an application to one of the boxer rescues, which I might add turned out to be the worst experience of my life. Not to mention turn me off from most rescue organizations. I almost stopped looking, for it had a really bad effect on me and left me feeling just about worthless. It was the Monday after I dealt with this rescue that I received an alert from your site of a new listing and immediately sent off an email. With no response from her, the next day I texted her and found that my future new buddy was still available. I went to meet him that day and the rest is history. This was virtually hassle free. My boy is sweet, handsome and happy. And....I am very happy too. If I had to say one negative thing, which really has nothing to do with your site, but more about the people who use it. It really needs to be updated as to who has been adopted and who is still available. But that is more the responsibility of the owners. I have already updated this listing. For anyone who doubts this rescue....it is legit. Thank you again. - Celeste

     I tried for weeks to find this poor guy a home. I had saved him from euthanasia after being told he passed his temperament tests and would be good with other animals, which was vital as we already had furry family members. After organizing his travel, it seemed like everything was great, he was safe and we had a new family member. He was still an angel with people, but a killer towards the smaller and fuzzy. After contacting over twenty rescues and shelters, only one said they'd take him, and they told me if he walked in, he would never walk out. As a last resort, I posted him online, and there we have our success story. Through Rescue Me, we found him a forever home with a lovely lady, her kids, and a fenced backyard.

     Max has been re-homed. He was rescued and found to be very thin, scared and in a very sad state. With the help of a lot of volunteers and caring folk, Rhodesian Ridgeback Rehab and Watershed in particular, who paid for his flight across Africa, he's now part of a lovely caring home. I would love to post a few pictures to show the amazing difference in Max, thanks to Rescue Me, Rhodesian Ridgeback Rehad, Watershed and everybody who shared his story and raised awareness. Amy Max's new mum said every time she looked that Max appeared. So your website works! Being in a different country from my father (who moved to an old age home) and Max meant that relying on international websites like these was the best way to get Max a new home.

     Thank you, Rescue Me. He did find a home, though his owner never came forward. I had a few families interested in him. A wonderful family with three children took him. He took instantly to the 12 year old boy. He wasn't afraid. He was the sweetest dog you could ever imagine. I just wish people saw Pits as wonderful and loving animals. We just hear so much bad, not the good. I would have loved to have kept him, but I have four girls, and I just couldn't keep him. This was a great, happy ending for such a wonderful boy. I know that twelve year old and him will be best buds. Thank you so much for your unconditional love of these animals. We sure could use a few lessons from animals for the way they love even different species. Let us love each other and treat our dogs and cats as they treat us. Sincerely, Linda

     My husband, three children and I just adopted Nana on Saturday. She is a super special dog!! We are so glad she has come to live with us. I am so thankful for the Rescue Me site as Nana was our third adoption. We have successfully provided forever homes to our Bull Mastiff (Zoe Belle), Great Dane (Xoe Mae) and now Saint Bernard (Nana). Our house is pretty full of dogs now! The adoptions have been very smooth and encouraging. I have shared this site with many friends and family who have been interested in adopting. It is such a fulfilling experience to know that we were able to open our farm to these three beautiful, loving girls. Our family is very grateful for the families that have trusted us to take them. Thank you for starting this site. It is comforting to know that there are people out there that care enough about their pets to actually seek a new home for them as opposed to just dropping them off somewhere. Keep up the good work!!!! -The Blackburns - Bryan, Heather, Forrest, Wyatt, Gradi & all the furry/wooly/feathery critters Leaning Trees Farm

     I was looking for a Maltese mix puppy when my husband advised that one of his company's clients rescued a Standard Poodle. I then looked up Maltese dogs for rescue in my area. When I saw this little girl, I knew I had to give her a home. She is such a huge blessing and we love her. It is much better to adopt than to buy a puppy. I would highly recommend to use Rescue Me to find your dream doggie.
