     Rescue Me was an enormous help in finding Rufus a wonderful, safe, new home! He was adopted by a loving couple that adores him. Every day is a grand new adventure for him. He goes to work on a horse ranch with his new mom. He has a furry new dog sister and regal cat brother who keeps them all in line. His new dad spoils him rotten. Thank you, Rescue Me!

     I love the Rescue Me site! It took a while before I found the perfect person for my sweet little poodles, but I found an amazing new home! They are so happy and well taken care of. This is like an open adoption! I was given full name/address/phone number/email etc., and I'm receiving photos, videos, and lovely updates. I am so very happy this worked out so well!

     A few hours after I posted LeAnn's information on Rescue Me, I received a call from a family that lives about two hours north of us. We arranged to meet the family (husband, wife and four daughters ranging in age from two months to seven years) at an easy-to-find McDonald's restaurant. LeAnn was so happy to meet her new family, and they were happy with her too. I'm sure those little girls will be able to give two-year-old LeAnn something I couldn't.....Lots of exercise. Thank you for helping LeAnn find what I hope is her forever home.

     I am so thankful for Rescue Me! It is so easy to use and it really is helping dogs find forever homes, especially when the local rescues are overwhelmed. I feel like the potential adopters I have communicated with have been really nice people, which eases my mind. Bella found a wonderful home through Rescue Me and I couldn't be happier. She knew she had just met her new family the first time we all met. They absolutely love her and I know she will get all the love and attention she deserves. Bella was dumped in a bad part of town and fended for herself in the woods and eating from the nearby apartment dumpsters for two weeks before I got her. Thank you for your part in Bella's happy ending!

I have used this site previously, and there is a reason I came back again to use it. I have also found my own loving pet through this organization, and I have nothing but gratitude for the people running it, and keeping it up and running. What an awesome resource to find/adopt an animal a home! Noble is safe, and loved, and thankful for Rescue Me!

     I'm so pleased to say I got Dolly from Rescue Me and didn't tell my 87 year old mother what I was doing. When I brought her into her home to give her to her, she looked shocked and not too happy; however, after an hour or so she was so pleased with Dolly and loves her so much so quick it was just what I was hoping. People live longer when they have a pet to love and give their attention. My mom loves Dolly so much! I was extremely surprised, I thought she was going to say take her back. Instead, I could not have picked a better companion for her. Dolly doesn't bark and she stays about two feet from my Mom so I don't worry that she will trip over her. Dolly is the sweetest, most sincere pet. My mom feels extremely blessed. Thank you so much, Rescue Me!!!

     I spotted sweet, beautiful April in a local high kill shelter and kept watching and hoping someone would save her and get her out before her time was up. No one was taking her. She watched as all the other dogs around her were being rescued or adopted and some put to sleep. I really had no room for another dog at home. Then she became listed as urgent with her time ending the next morning. I decided I had to somehow make room for her and keep her until I could have her spayed and vetted, then find her a wonderful, new, forever home. We kept her inside, leashed trained her, potty trained her and taught her a few basic commands while searching for her home. For several months, I tried posting her on Facebook and a few other websites, I asked friends and family and also contacted several rescues and had no potential leads of a good home for this sweet girl. Then, someone mentioned Rescue Me! I am so glad they did! I posted her and within a day or so, she had several very good potential adopters that were very interested in her. I had to sort through many emails and phone calls and got to pick where I thought would be the best match and home for my April as well as for what the adopter was looking for. This couple (which did have great references) had just recently lost a Redbone they had for many years, to cancer. They came across my post for April and had to meet her. I think it was love at first sight! She is now living a life of luxury in her new home, on their couches, chairs and bed, visits to the family farm on the weekends, being spoiled rotten and loved very much! Thank you, Rescue Me, for making this possible for her!

     I looked on Rescue Me and found the dog of my dreams. I sent a message to the contact person and she replied the very next day. We talk and text several times that day and the next. Two days later we met and I got my dog. I have a friend that is looking for a Rottweiler as well, and I recommended that they look at this site rather than to purchase from a breeder and give one of these dogs a second chance to have a great life with a loving family. I don't use credit or debit cards, but I will be sending a donation is the form of a money order. I really appreciate this site and the people that post to it and the ones that adopt from it. If I wasn't a truck driver and had a large area, I would adopt several.

     After a very rough start to life then spending a few months with us, this little girl named Reese got to start a new chapter in her life! A very sweet lady drove over six hours to adopt her and give her an amazing life. She will be living as an indoor/outdoor dog on a five acre ranch with another pup, horses, kitties, and most importantly a loving couple that will love her for life. We could not be any happier with how things have turned out for miss Reese and are truly grateful for Rescue Me for connecting us.

     I posted my golden/collie mix and had 12 applications within two weeks from both close by and far away. A wonderful rescue, Summit Dog, also contacted me so I had a wonderful back up option also and they were so flexible to work with. Hans ended up going to a great young couple who live close by and we know with their lifestyle it was the best fit for him. We got him from a shelter where he was so frightened that he would not come to meet anyone so we got him out socialized him with our kids and dogs and got him ready for a great home. I am so grateful for this site, only wonderful people contacted us and it was a very positive experience. Thank you, Rescue Me!

     Joansey was left abandoned in the yard with her brother and another pet when her owner was arrested. The neighbors shot at Joansey, her brother and the other pet. Her brother, Jones, died from the wounds a week later. The other pet, Takeo, had to have surgery due to his wounds and lived. He was adopted as well. Joansey, who hid under the house, escaped without injury. However, she was traumatized and very timid because of her experiences. Because of the help of Rescue Me and others, she got her fur ever home. This is what Rescue Me does for these pets, gives them a chance at a decent live. I am endlessly grateful for their help.

     Rescue Me helped my family and I have found Miley her forever home. A sweet family came across her photo and kept going back to her every time they visited the website. Finally, Shannon emailed me with the good news that she wanted my baby who we could no longer keep. We stayed in contact for a week emailing back and forth with questions, general information, and likes and dislikes each of our dogs have. We met at a local dog park with her husband and their handsome dog, Cooper. Immediately, I felt a connection between Shannon, her husband, and their dog Cooper with Miley. It was such a great experience and I'm glad Miley has her forever home and has a new brother to play with. Thank you Shannon and Travis for taking our baby and making her yours.

     Thank you, Rescue Me. I picked up Champ only a short three hour or so drive from my home. Found him delightful and very well behaved. Made the trip very satisfactorily. I lost one of my two in September of last year and the other in April both due to old age. Having them around for the last twelve years is hard to get over, but, Champ is making up for their loss. He has made his first visit to the vet for a physical and shots, with a scheduled revisit in a few weeks for his neutering. He has an appointment with the groomer tomorrow for a bath and a haircut. Thanks to all for Champ's well being and the love and care he has had in the past. He is now in his forever home.

The hardest part was deciding WHICH AMAZING family to give them too! It was such a hard decision, but when it came down to it, we kept them close by. We thank you and would recommend Rescue Me at any time to anyone. Rescue Me made a very difficult situation for us just a little easier, knowing there were so many homes to choose from all over the United States. We wanted our 'baby dogs', as we have affectionately called them for some time now, to continue to be spoiled rotten! They are such special parts of our lives and we had to make an utmost difficult decision. Thank you to every Scottie-lover out there who inquired about Linus and Lucy, and for Rescue Me making this all possible!

     By kismet alone, we happened to be at a high kill shelter when this dog was being surrendered. We talked with the family and asked if we could take him into our rescue and asked that they keep him until we could find a foster. They gave us one week. Within that week, we posted on adoption sites, including Rescue Me. This is where his new family saw him. They emailed us, filled out an application, and allowed us to do a home check before even meeting the dog. We did a final meet and greet a week after we first met the dog, less than 24 hours after we physically removed him from his home and brought him into a rescue. It was instant attraction on both sides. He is now home, nine days after he was to be surrendered to the shelter, with a family that will love and cherish him until his time comes to walk across that Rainbow Bridge. Thank you, Rescue Me!

     I first got Dog when his original owner lost his home and could not longer care for him. I named him Dog, mostly because he answered to that name. It is also a name for a character in Wolverine Origin comic book. He had a lot of bad habits. He was accustomed to being inside running amuck with other dogs in the home. He is also a escape artist. He knows how to climb the chain link fence, which made training difficult. He came around. Learned to walk on a leash, to sit and beg. He is a active dog and likes to leap into his owner's arms and smother him with kisses. Sadly, I had to find a better, more caring home for Dog. Dog's new owner told me they would care for him. He has kids who already met Dog and wanted him to join their family. It was hard seeing Dog walk away with his new family. Rips your heart out. I am glad to train him a bit and bring a disciplined animal to a loving family. I am a United States Marine. As a Veteran, once a Marine, always a Marine. And so is Dog... Thank you, Rescue Me.

     Stella is a wonderful Pitbull/Boxer mix. We got her when she was six months old. She is so smart, and was house trained when we got her, knows simple commands like sit, leave it, drop it, and never pulled on the leash during our walks. Even though she was about 40 pounds, she acted like a lap dog, and was such a cuddly dog. Well, my fairly new homeowners insurance company decided to do a visual inspection. I had only had this company a short time, and switched because my other company was going to raise my rates. I received a 'dog survey' asking about the breed, etc. I contacted them, and as soon as I said 'Pit', the insurance said basically you have 30 days to find a new home or they will have to drop my insurance. Unfortunately, I have to have insurance. I was so upset, as we didn't want to get rid of her, but it was the best thing to do. I cannot believe that insurance companies can do this without even knowing the dog's demeanor. I have learned that there are close to 30 dogs on this 'black list', and that insurance companies can drop a homeowner. It's really not fair at all. I found Rescue Me, and decided to give it a try. Someone contacted us within two days, I believe. She was a high school student, and was so interested in her. Her father and she visited us about a week later. Stella instantly took a liking to the teen. They came back the next day and took her home. Later that evening, she took a picture of Stella along with her other dog in her new home. She is going to keep the name, and even keep in touch with us. Even though we would have loved to keep Stella, this site has given Stella another chance at a good home.

     Thank you Rescue Me for helping my family find such a sweet Min Pin. We adore her and she has adjusted very quickly to her new home. We were a little worried at first because this was our first attempt at adopting a non-puppy. I have no regrets. She is super.

     Cooper is a dog in my small town that had been abused and rescued. He is a Treeing Walker Coonhound obtained by a teenager who had lost both parents while still in high school. The young man was unable to care for Cooper, and left him with the person providing him shelter as he went to work weekly. The person evicted Cooper, and the young man relocated to a nearby town. I brought Cooper home and provided LOVE, food, shelter, and medical care. He now has a home with lots of land. Cooper was posted available for adoption after two months of training and rehabilitation with TIGAS. His post was on Rescue Me for less than two weeks. Thank you, Rescue Me, for this opportunity to help re-home loving, healthy, animals in need.

     Kona found a wonderful forever family through adoption. The family has had two previous (long lived) Eskies and was ready to have another. Once you have had an Eskie, you may be ruined for any other breed. Kona LOVES his new home and family. I am blessed to have fostered him. Thank you, Rescue Me.

     Thank you so much for helping me find the perfect family for this loving and sweet Pit Bull that my daughter rescued from a shelter. I was very unsure of the process because I didn't know who would answer my Rescue Me post. Khalesi was adopted into a loving family. The minute we got there to meet the family, I knew in my heart, I had found her a forever home. Thank you so much for making this process so easy!

     Jax got a wonderful home today! I found the best possible home for him and know he will have a wonderful life! He will be the only pet and will be greatly spoiled. His new mommy was looking for another lil' dog since her last one passed from old age issues recently. I already got my first update today on how Jax is doing. This is what was said: 'We went to my daughter's house and he played with her dog. They got along well. Then on the way back home, he slept like an angel in his new bed. We've played in the yard, and with his toys, had his evening meal, and now he is making himself at home. He gives me sugar and his Daddy sugar too. He will jump up with me on the sofa and sit in my lap. We will send pictures later. I will be following Jax on Facebook!' Thank you Rescue Me for finding Jax a great home!

     We found our prince, Pogo, on Rescue Me, he reminded us of a tiny version of a large American bulldog we lost several years ago to cancer. It was an instant connection and I knew he was meant for us. He is an 18 month old Jack Russell/Chihuahua mix. He makes everyone in my house so happy, even our seven year old Bichon. He is perfection, and he is cuddling me as I write this review. I am so so glad I found this site and found my precious boy, Pogo!

     Roxie was abandoned near a dog park as a puppy. Our neighbor found her, and we ended up taking her in. We knew our life was too busy to care for such a young and active dog. So we trained her a bit and socialized her and posted her on Rescue Me where a wonderful couple adopted her to join their other two dogs, including another Staffy. We're so happy that the Rescue Me website exists and helped Roxie find a true doggy paradise.

     I lost my two Weims, Joe and Frank, this year. Frank, my Humane Society rescue whom I adopted at age of four, we had to put him down in his 12th year due to old age. Joe we purchased as a pup, and was diagnosed with nasal cancer in his 10th year. I had to put him down three weeks after we lost Frank. Needless to say, this was heartbreaking. I started looking at your Weimaraner page and saw Casey. We fell in love; he is a great dog! Thank you for doing what you're doing! We will be donating to Rescue Me. Thanks again!

     Pogo was the easiest dog that I have ever had under my foster care. I was so taken with this loving little guy that I was considering adopting him myself. Then I received an email and began corresponding with a nice lady that was so taken with his picture. She and her family made arrangements with me to meet at the dog park. I thought maybe that when they saw him, he wouldn't be what they expected. They drove approximately 100 miles round trip, and I believe that he was meant to be a part of their family! The entire family seemed perfect for him, even their dog accepted him. Pogo was hesitant about leaving my arms and leaving me, his loving foster mom of five weeks, but I received pictures of him with individuals in the family and my eyes filled with tears of happiness for this little guy and for the his newly adoptive family! Thank you, Rescue Me.

     I'm so happy that Rescue Me helped find Tuck a great home within a week of posting his picture! He had several interested adopters, and the couple that adopted him actually drove eight hours one way to come and meet him! We had several communications before they made the long trek to ensure he was everything they were looking for in a dog, and that they would be the perfect family for Tuck! I'm pretty sure it was love at first sight! Within an hour, they were heading home with Tuck in tow! The couple lives within walking distance of the ocean and near many hiking trails and beautiful forests/parks. They run every day, and hike for sport on weekends, and work from home - I can't think of a better fit for Tuck! We are now friends on Facebook, so I can see Tuck enjoying life with his new family! I would strongly recommend to anyone that needs to re-home a pet to try posting on Rescue Me before taking the animal to a shelter.

     My love for Beagles is a strong one. I grew up with nothing but a Beagles. I received a male chocolate-tri last year from a breeder and wanted to rescue one as well so I could have my pair back. They had this sweet little foxhound was set to be killed, but once I got the Mother's Day email and saw her I knew she was mine. They had her listed as a three year old beagle-hound. Turns out she is 100% Fox Hound, maybe 11-15 months old. They were about to kill a baby foxhound, unbelievable. I immediately filled out my paperwork and secured her from getting killed. Some folks quickly called me and I let them know I wanted her. I really appreciate all the fantastic people that work so hard to save these pets. I cannot thank my crew enough for getting her free, to the vet. They are so fantastic that they even found a transport for her. GOD bless everyone for what they have done and are working on and future work. I named my baby foxhound, Victoria, which is fitting because she's English, and we were 'victorious' in saving her. She, Jesse and Skinny (my rescued yellow Lab) are running the household now. Victoria is very smart, she already can sit and shake. Of course, it's a bit hard for her because she's just learning, but she's a great pup, and we are so happy to add her to the family. Thank you for all you do and thank you for our sweet Victoria!

     I found the most perfect loving home for Roman. He loves his new family and new playmates. He now lives on a three acre home where he is able to play outside with other dogs and enjoy the comforts of living inside. I feel so blessed for this site. It was hard giving up my dog. I had been with since he was a pup. It's nice because his new family sends pictures and gives me updates. It's never easy letting go of a pet, but it makes it a little easier knowing he is in a wonderful loving home. Thank you, Rescue Me.

     Rescue Me was fantastic! When faced with the hard decision to rehome our sweet Pyrenees. We immediately starting receiving inquires the day we posted. The people who called were all seriously looking for this breed so knew the sweet, loving nature along with the drawbacks of such a big hairy dog. We spoke to some wonderful people and found ourselves with great options for a new home. It was heartwarming to know there are such good people looking on this site to offer assistance and loving homes. Thank you, Jeff Gold, for this site.

I could not have asked for a better person and forever home for Sasha. I even get visitation with her and pictures of how well she is adjusting to her new home. Thank you, Rescue Me!

     After a nice telephone call, Joe and Linda showed up at our home to meet Lowe. Usually skiddish and cautious, Lowe jumped right up in their lap. After a short visit, Joe, Linda and Lowe loaded up in their car and drove back to their rural home about an hour away. Linda was clear that she did not want to adopt a puppy; and she had lived with a Papillon before. Their were gracious and understanding. I tried to be as honest and upfront as possible about Lowe's assets and faults. This little dog NEEDED this undivided constant attention that Joe and Linda could give to him! Thank you, Rescue Me!!!

     I've been a member of this website for a while, but was in the midst of moving so I was unable to adopt. I closed on my house the same night I logged in and found this little gem. Khalessi is a ray of sunshine to me. In 2011, I lost my black and tan male dachshund due to age. He passed at the age of 18. After losing him, I said I didn't think I could love another Doxie the way I did him. Once I joined Rescue Me, my feelings began to change. Now that Khalessi is here, I know adopting her at this moment was the right thing to do. Adopting a rescued pet means a life saved, and she's so worth it.

     For a couple of months, I had been looking for just the right dog to adopt and add to our family. I received an alert about a new Neo-Mastiff that was available for adoption, and after reading her bio I decided to give her foster parents a call. We talked for a while, and I immediately knew she was the one. Only problem was she was located eight hours away, but her foster parents went above and beyond and met me half way with her so I could adopt her. She's the biggest sweetheart and has completely stolen my heart. She was in pretty rough shape from being abandoned, but we took her to the vet and have everything she needs to get her healthy again. She's starting to put on healthy weight and gaining more energy everyday. I love watching her personality come out more and more as trust is established everyday. Both of our dogs are rescues. They are the best dogs in the world. I will forever only adopt. Thank you Rescue Me for being a wonderful resource to help make the difference in dogs' lives. Our family is bigger and happier thanks to you.
