     Rescue Me was so very helpful in finding Mongo a great home. I cannot thank you all enough. Mongo was not to greatest at being with other animals, nor strangers and when this awesome couple called me saying they were looking for another shepherd to be friends with their eight month old female Shepherd. I was a little nervous if it would work out. They came down to visit, and Mongo he took to them right away. It was their puppy who took longer to adjust, but within an hour, they were running around the yard playing and having a great time. Even though it was so very hard to give him up and he is part of me, I am so very blessed to have found a great new home for him. He loves running and playing with his new stepsister. Thanks again for everything! -Cheryl

     Gus has found a very happy home. I met the new owner and she was a wonderful Basset loving women. She has a Basset name Elvis that was looking for a friend. They hit it off immediately and are living happily ever after. It was one of the hardest things I have ever done to give up my Sweet Gus, but knowing that he is in a safe and happy home makes it so much easier. Thank you so much for having Rescue Me for people who need to find a place for their dog. I would recommend this website to anyone needs help placing a dog.

     Charlie was actually reunited with his original family who owned him after being lost for two years. The family was elated to have him back. It's a very long story but being on the site helped him be found. Rescue Me has helped me with many dogs over the years. I will continue to use their site to get dogs adopted!

     After posting the puppies on this site my first call was their forever home. Michael and Cynthia are the best parents for Cash and Zoe. I believe everything happens for a reason. My son couldn't keep the dogs and Michael was wanting a new dog and was willing to take both brother and sister. We couldn't have found them a better home. They get special trips to the beach and very healthy meals. They are well loved. Thank you, Rescue Me!

     Thank you Rescue Me. My sweet Hope was not adopted, but there was a much better and unexpected outcome. A complete stranger (I don't know if I should tell her name) contacted me, and very generously sent me a check, to help pay for her food and medication. Her generosity allows me to keep her for the next few months, as I wait to hear about a possible job. Your site sent me a very rare angel. I'm so appreciative of her help, and if I get this job, I won't have to give up my best friend and very much loved pet. Once I'm back on my feet, I'll send a check expressing my gratitude. Thank you so much for have this site! -Randy

     We were blessed to find Finn. Our 13 year old Aussie had recently passed away. Going through a breeder was never going to be an option. Rescue Me is a wonderful website doing great work to help find amazing animals' homes! Technically, we rescued Finn, but really he rescued my husband and me. Thank you and bless you from us and Finn!

     Thanks to Rescue Me, a dog was placed with a new loving family today. This is such a BLESSING for her! The first person that contacted me for her didn't seem right and references did not check out, so I held out and kept her until she landed with a much deserved loving family. It was a sad but sweet goodbye, we are so happy for her to have found her new home full of love.

     Magnum was adopted by a wonderful family a little over a week ago. He has three young children that play with him everyday after school. There is someone home almost all the time, so he gets lots of attention. He has a nice backyard and goes on walks in his new neighborhood every morning. Magnum's new family loves him very much and they called him a big teddy bear because he's so cuddly. Thank you, Rescue Me.

     My friends (we are all senior citizens) wanted a little girl doggie for a companion to their little poodle, a rescue dog.. I have been looking for over a year for a dog for them. We saw one last week and when I called she was adopted that day. My friend said it doesn't have to be a poodle it can be a Shih-Tzu. I came back to Rescue Me and little Missy's picture said I'm waiting for you. I sent her picture to my friends and they said, 'yes make it happen.' I got in touch with the owner and she is wonderful, pleasant and loving lady. We met and Missy is awesome, she settled right in. We can't find a thing wrong with her. She is well behaved, housebroken, loves to play... A little loveable doll baby. She is definitely a diamond. She will never want for anything.. Both dogs are getting along, and are loving to each other. Barbara, the owner, was wonderful to work with.. Thank you Barbara.

     Bo Jangles... We rescued him as a 10 month old puppy from life in a crate that he had outgrown. After we helped him adjust to and discover life outside the crate, this boy has been a flawless companion for us. We love him like life itself. About two years ago, my hubby and I both suffered big losses in our health, income and home situation. Daddy is now in long term care and I am moving to senior housing. So sad, Bo Jangles can't come with me. From devastated to overjoyed, this is how our story goes. Because of Rescue Me, Bo Jangles found LuAnn and Sammy, and a wonderful new home surrounded by exercise trails and a new friends to take him for runs on the beach. I'm so happy for Bo I can't even be upset. LuAnn did the crying for me when we traded hands with the leash. I love you, my big fluffy boy! Take good care of LuAnn and Sammy! I know they love you already!

     To make a long story short, a local pound will only keep dogs for a maximum of five days (yeah, I know) so these two puppies were supposed to be euthanized on Monday. I ended up taking them and getting them ready to go to a forever home. This site was awesome! It is breed and gender specific, which helps everyone choose the right dog for them. The female was adopted today to a home I myself could not have imagined to be any better for her...... Thank you Mr. and Mrs. M!!!! The male is still available for adoption! Thank you to everyone who cares about the unwanted and to groups/websites like Rescue Me!

     After three weeks of searching for a home for this beautiful girl, I stumbled upon Rescue Me and posted her information. I was contacted within a day of posting and was blessed with a forever home for her. I was also contacted by several other people interested, but had already committed to the first home. I'm so thankful to this site for their help in getting her information out. I'm not sure I could've done it without you!! Thank you!!

     Diesel found his furever home Thursday night! So thankful to Rescue Me for posting Diesel's pic and story for David and Austin to see. They drove three and a half hours one way to see Diesel and how he and their dog, Link, would get along. It was love at first sight for these two precious babies! I know David & Austin will give Diesel all the love, care, and attention he deserves. And now he also has a new best friend to romp and play with every day! Thank you, David, Austin, and especially Rescue Me for this happy ending!!!

     Reese came to live with us about 24 hours ago and we all couldn't be happier. We found Benny, our precious, gorgeous pure-breed Boston Terrier on Rescue Me last December. We couldn't 'out walk' his energy so finally decided he needed a friend. The first try was a disaster. I'd ready fallen in love with Petey, it was harder for me than either of them. But after the first day, Benny wanted nothing to do with him, and they became aggressive toward one another. Precious Reese is truly a gift. He is so mellow, yet ready to play at the drop of a hat. Reese has been respectful of the cat, and of Benny, from the very first moment she came in the door. And oh, such a love! Reese is truly an answer to prayer -- PERFECT fit for our family! Thank you, Rescue Me for making this service of getting people and animals together that would never have met without you! (I wish I could post a pic of them sleeping here at my feet as I'm posting this).

     Thank you so much for your Rescue Me website! I had taken in a lovely lost Great Pyrenees and hoped to keep him, but with my two other dogs, a busy job and a horse it was proving to be just too much! I knew 'Pyrenees Pete' needed a home that understood the needs of Pyrenees mountain dogs if possible and I made a listing on your site and heard from two different Pyrenees experienced families within 24 hours! The Hammits came down and met Pete and took him home in their large dog outfitted car (complete with ramp!) to his new home! They sent pictures and told me about his successful settling in process. I am so pleased! Thanks again!

     Have you ever heard of fate? Well, that is exactly what happened, fate. This senior was on the EU list. The owner dumped him, and he was about to be put down. He is eight to ten years old. Holly, a friend and fellow rescue person, told me about him and asked if I knew anyone wanting to adopt him. I said let me see what I can do. Time was running out and the transport was leaving at 6:00 AM. Before I went to bed, I looked and there it was, my answer to save this dog. Lynn said I have been looking for a senior Shih Tzu. Her dog is now 13 years old and going blind, and needs a buddy. I called her, and it is a PERFECT MATCH! The funny part is she had never before been on the Rescue Me site, and she did not know what drew her to it. As soon as she saw him, she said that is the dog I want. The next funny part is the transport driver was to leave at 6:00 AM, but her phone went black and she did not wake up in time. She called everyone to make sure she did not leave, because she had to go buy a new cell phone. Because of that, she picked up the Shih Tzu, and he is now headed on the transport to his new forever home. God is good. He had a plan for this dog and Lynn was it! The broken phone played a part in saving this little Shih Tzu's life. I love happy endings!

     I am disabled and have to move in with my daughter. Since they could take no other animals, I had to give up my beautiful, loving Corgi. In less than 24 hours, I had seven inquiries about my pup. She will be headed soon to a wonderful home with a couple who've recently lost their beloved Corgi. I am so relieved that she will be in a loving home and the object of their affection, hopefully for many years to come. We will miss her terribly but it helps to know she's in good hands. Rescue Me has been a godsend.

     I lost both of my toy poodles that I had since they were puppies in 2012 (age 12) and 2014 (age 16). I got a third (Chihuahua) puppy from a friend in 2009. My son and I started talking and decided it was time to add a new member to our family and get a playmate for my now six year old Chihuahua. I first looked on another popular adoption site, but I was very disappointed when I didn't get any replies to the dogs I expressed an interest in. Then I decided I'd try Rescue Me. When I didn't see a Chi I was interested in or the dogs I expressed an interest in were already adopted locally, I branched out to other states. And that's where I found Luke! I found out ALL about the Tysor Veterinary Clinic also. In less than an hour after I submitted my application for Luke, a lady named Becky called me from the Clinic. I couldn't believe that there weren't other applications for him before mine! After some phone calls and emails, Becky said I was approved! When Becky asked how they were going to get Luke to us, I told her 'If it's ok, my son, instead of me, will drive down to pick him up.' She said that was fine. So on Wednesday of this week, my son went to the Clinic and got him. Becky took a picture and emailed it to me. :) The night of the adoption, she friended me on Facebook. Luke is my first rescue and I can honestly say I enjoyed everything about my experience on Rescue Me. I would highly recommend your site over the other one I tried first. Thank you so much for creating this site! ~Pat~

     'Big Dog' ('Bo') found the best home with loving owners that takes the best care of him thanks to his Rescue Me posting. He's on his way to be a certified therapy dog as well. He gets so much deserved attention and lots of play time, including beach going and swimming. We initially saved him from a high kill shelter just hours before his euthanasia. He is such a great dog; it could not make me happier that this wonderful boy was saved and got a second chance to live a fun-filled life, which he truly deserves, with such a loving family!

     Thanks, Rescue Me. Bakkies was re-homed a week ago. He found an absolutely wonderful home on a 140 hectare nature reserve with new parents who love him to bits. He's allowed to jump on the couches, but has his own special bed. His new dad says they are having loads of fun and Bakkies enjoys all the free space he has.

     I just wanted to say thank you to Rescue Me! I received multiple emails about Violet daily. We found what seems to be the perfect fit for her. As sad as it was to let her leave, we believe she found a better fit where she will get all the love she deserves. So, thank you for allowing us to utilize your site to find the perfect human for her.

     Today was a great day for Big Paws Rescue. Thanks to using Rescue Me to post a loving Siberian Husky named Aurora that was in need of her furever home, today she found her new home. After receiving many messages regarding her post, she has a new family who will love and care for her. Her daddy is a soldier being deployed, and she needed a home quickly. Thank you Rescue Me. -Tabatha

     Well, I must say that my long-time friend and brother, who is now in heaven, must be happy that so many individuals such as himself have the love and time to offer the puppies I posted on Rescue Me for adoption. I was inundated with calls from all over the state. I have just one dog left (momma) and hopefully someone will be her next loving companion. I was there for the birthing of the puppies, and held each so many times. It hurts to know they're gone, but glad they are being loved by those that can devote the required time to make them great. Thanks to all who called and special thanks to Jeff Gold for the formation of this site, and his love of Rotties and all the other breeds that offer mankind the ability to know what unconditional love, devotion and companionship a well treated dog can bring.

     I found my Pit Bull on Rescue Me and I absolutely love her. She is a great dog and so sweet. She has a skin problem and is a little on the skinny side, but I got her straight from the owners and not a shelter so she needs to see a vet. But other than that, it was a smooth process and she is a great fit with our family. We just adore her and she is very happy in her new home.

     After our beloved Gordon (American Eskimo) passed away, we were devastated. That's why we knew it would be helpful if we could adopt a dog to brighten up our life and to bring back the smile in our household. After long research, I found Rescue Me. The site that made it all happen!!! I am amazed how professional and quick this organization works. I found Fluffy (a five year old white Maltese) on this site the same day and I fell in love with him instantly!! Fluffy's foster mom was very informative, kind and very helpful. Immediately scheduled our first meeting with Fluffy, and it was phenomenal one! Fluffy and I bonded instantly. After a very smooth and quick adoption process, we took him to his forever Home. Fluffy is great, he is doing extremely well! Our cat is also fascinated by him along with the rest of the family. Fluffy is adjusting very well and he seems to be very happy. We are so happy with him!. He is running around happily, playing with everyone, sleeping next to me all the time. Everyone is in love with him. He is very good and well behaved and very positive and happy dog. He brought our smiles back after our Gordon passed away. We are extremely happy and over the Moon!! Thank you, Rescue Me, for making this happen. Thank you for helping us find our Fluffy and for helping us find happiness again. We are one happy family- thanks to you, Rescue Me. -Magdalena.

     My 17 year old agility champion crossed the rainbow bridge in January. One day, to pass the time, I was curious if there was another fearless dog with the drive and loyalty that might make another agility champion. Most of the biographies I read described many sweet, calm, easy going lap dogs which were nice, but not what I was looking for. How I ended up on the Rescue Me website is still a mystery, or was it fate? When I read Sailor's bio I was more than intrigued. Her foster mom described the dog of my dreams: high drive, relentless, unable to sit still, fearless, basically able to 'leap tall buildings in a single bound,' cling to your side kind of dog. After talking with Sailor's foster parents for several hours, I made plans to travel to adopt her. Sailor has been with me from that day forward. Sailor has learned sit, down, wait, stay, ready, steady, free, and is the star of her beginning obedience class. Also, we have started basic agility training all of which she enjoys. Sailor has brought much joy into my life and makes me laugh everyday. Thank you so much Rescue Me!

     I cannot express enough the importance of the service Rescue Me provides. This site enabled me to obtain and adopt a beautiful, sweet and loving Dachshund. Her name is Bella. It was a heart wrenching decision for the original owner, and it was a long awaiting dream of mine to own a Dachshund again. I know there were many who also wanted to adopt Bella, and I am so grateful for the privilege of becoming Bella's new mommy. This would not ever have happened without this wonderful site. I cannot thank you guys and Carolyn enough for making it possible for Bella and me to be together. We are doing fabulous and are nearly inseparable. I will spread the word. Thank you!

Someone taught her very well, I thank them. It's only been a day and she has bonded to us both, as I hoped she would. Thank you, Rescue Me,for caring so much for all the rescues. I pray they too will find love the way they share theirs. -Carol and Adam

     It was a very tough decision look for a new home for my 10 year old Jack Russell, Jorge. We have had her since she was a puppy and we all love her very much. Unfortunately, Jorge didn't get along well with our cat (and would attack her if she got near her) so we have lived with gates and closed doors for 10 years. Jorge is a very sweet dog who loves to cuddle and give kisses, but the stress of trying to keep the cat secure was getting to be too much. I refused to ever just drop her at a shelter and didn't want to give her to anyone who wouldn't be open to sharing updates with us as time went on. I decided to try this site and had Jorge posted. I received a call within one or two days from someone who had a three year old Jack (rescued) and was looking for a playmate/partner for her. We met and spent time and the decision was made that they would take Jorge home. I won't lie, I cried, a lot! (Still some tears a day later..) but so far I have received two updates and pictures on how well Jorge is doing in her new home. I was worried I may have made the wrong decision, but their openness to share updates/pictures with us, and seeing/hearing how well Jorge is doing after only one day... My heart is a little less heavy and tears of sadness are slowly turning to tears of happiness knowing she is going to have a great life without the stress of doors/gates. Thank You!

Within two days of posting her, an angel came along and adopted not only her, but her 13 year old mother!! What a blessing this site is!!! Thank you so very much!!!

     Thank you Rescue Me! Due to having placed Max on your site, my sister asked me to send photos of him so that our cousin who takes her dogs to doggie park can show them to see if anyone of these dog lovers would be interested. Well, who woulda thought?! I sent her pictures last night and she called me 15 minutes ago because she couldn't stop looking at him and remembering how affectionate, he was when my family would come over to get togethers. This would not have happened had I not put him on Rescue Me. She will be picking him up in two weeks so she can get doggie door and doggie seat. She is so delighted!

     I was actually looking for a lab for a friend and came across this brown eyed beauty. His story just touched my heart. This is actually my second adoption through Rescue Me. He is a fantastic addition to our family. It has been one week and he has already totally made himself at home. There are so many fantastic animals on this website that deserve a forever home. Before buying a pet, please consider adopting.

     Our beloved Schnauzer, Abby, passed away unexpectedly. We were devastated to lose her. At first I couldn't even think about 'replacing' her, but as time went on, we began to really miss that bouncy, sweet, snugly personality. I found Rescue Me online and put in a request for alerts. When the alert came through for Millie, I took one look at her sweet face and thought that this might be the one for us. We went over to see her the next day, and sure enough, we fell in love and brought her home. She and our Golden Retriever took to each other instantly. She is calm, but playful, and loves to sit in my lap. After just a few days, it feels like she has been part of our family forever. Thanks so much for all you do.

     It has been a new experience for me to be a foster mom to a rescued pet. Lily has been wonderful. She came to me a shy, withdrawn dog and has blossomed into a 70 pound puppy! It has been amazing to watch her learn to play and really stretch those long legs of hers! She is going to a wonderful couple who will treat her like one of their children. She will certainly rule the roost as the only pet in the house! Luckily, I will still get to be 'auntie' to this beautiful, loving dog who was rejected by her original adoptive family. Lily has certainly made my attitude change about fostering other animals in the future. I now look forward to helping other pets find their forever homes one at a time. Thank you, Rescue Me, for posting Lily for me. Without your help, another dog would have been euthanized for no reason. Thank you again. -Aimee

     Rescue Me helped us find the perfect home for our girl, Kosie. This pup means so much to us and through this website, we were able to find exactly what she needed. Allowing us to post her picture and a very detailed description enabled us to find start the search for finding her new loving family. Her family is dedicated to providing her with the necessary exercise and environment best suited for a dog of her breed. We are extremely grateful because without a re-homing program like this, it would have been very challenging to find such a great match. My husband and I are thankful that her new family continues to stay in touch and update us pretty regularly through text and Facebook. We are happy to know that Kosie is living a wonderful and adventurous life with two people who care as deeply about her as we do.
