     We were so happy to find a good home for our two dogs. Within five hours of posting, we received an email from a wonderful family. They couldn't have been more perfect! It was a huge relief knowing they were going to a great home. Thank you Mr. Gold for running such an awesome program!

     I was really happy with Rescue Me! and so was Thunder. I posted him around1:30pm and Thunder had a new family by 6:00pm. I was so worried I would not find a home for him. It was easy to post and only took a few minutes. The results were awesome. Thanks again Rescue Me!

     Rescue Me! absolutely helped me! I rescued this wonderful young dog from a backyard life of neglect when the owner offered him to me. I had no intention of keeping him, I just wanted him out of there, and to start a new life. After bathing him, removing all his mats, and starting his vaccinations I posted him with you, and within one day I had interviewed the most perfect new owner. She drove nine hours to get him and all of us could not be happier. You provided so much more help and service than the local rescue agencies, who now only accept dogs that are already in danger in a shelter. I needed someone like you to step in and get the word out about this little guy! Thank you!

     This is the most wonderful site in the world. We are a very small rescue and don't have money to advertise, but with Rescue Me! we didn't have to. We adopted out 12 dogs in the last 5 days. I thank this site for helping rescues get the pups adopted.

     Thank you so much for helping me find a new home for my girl. It was only minutes after posting that we had a list of new homes hoping for a new pup. Maggie now has a new home close to us so we can visit and keep in touch. On top of that, her new family loves her as much as we do. Again, thanks, Rescue Me!

     Today I met a wonderful woman who has offered me such great hope for the future of Milo, our dear Jack Russell, who was in need of a loving home. She called, less than 48 hours after I reluctantly posted his need for a home. She had lost her Jack Russell a couple of years ago and was looking for a companion, not only for herself, but for her other dog, whom she said had lost some of his spunk when his buddy had to be put to sleep. After swapping dog stories for about a half an hour, and hearing her obvious love for dogs, we agreed to meet at her house. I packed Milo's belongings in case the meeting went well and headed out on a trip that took nearly an hour. Shortly after we arrived, the dogs were lead outside, where her dog started to run around and Milo chased him. Then Milo ran, and her dog chased. She said she hadn't seen her dog run since he lost his buddy and this was exactly what she wanted for him. We visited for some time, as the dogs got to know each other. There was some posturing, and correcting, but for once, I saw no fear in Milo. She was very accepting of his total lack of manners, saying manners will come later. He ran in and out the dog door like he had done it all of his life. He chased squirrels and even met the cat (who I believe let him know he wasn't interested in playing with him at the moment). Before long, Milo came and laid at my feet, completely at ease. We both felt there was a great chance for Milo's success in her home. So, after a brief goodbye, I left. I was sad, naturally, but couldn't help feel elated at what a wonderful home Milo had found. I spent the whole drive home gushing to my husband about how well the meeting went and how happy I am for Milo. No sooner had I walked through the door, I got a call from Milo's new mom asking how I was doing. I assured her I was okay then she told me all about Milo's dinner and how he was doing. We have agreed to keep in touch. Thank you Rescue Me! Not only do I believe Milo has found a fabulous, loving home, I believe it has been a win for everyone!

     I posted Roscoe's picture on Rescue Me! on a Tuesday evening. By Thursday, I had found a family for him. I was overwhelmed at the response I received, but I had no difficulty deciding which home I wanted Roscoe to become part of. Although I will miss him terribly, I am certain that he will be welcomed and loved by his new owners. Rescue Me! offers a phenomenal service to dogs and dog lovers. Thank you!

     I found myself moving out of state and unable to take my loved ones with me. Dreading that I would have to take them to animal control, a friend suggested I try a rescue organization. After a short Google search, I found the wonderful Rescue Me! site. The posting was so easy and quick, and I had responses shortly thereafter. I was able to place Spanky and Maxie together. They are brother and sister and I did not want to separate them.


Sender: Twyla Jack     Date: February 24, 2014 _
     After only a few days on Rescue Me! I had numerous inquiries on Max and found a wonderful home for him. The family flew down from Northern Nevada and spent several days getting to know him so the transition would be easier. He loves them and they adore him! I will recommend Rescue Me! to anyone who needs to find a warm and loving home for their pet. My only advice is to make sure to carefully interview any prospective owners and make sure ahead of time if they have a suitable yard, will be crating the pet, or have another animal (or child) in the home that is aggressive.

     Oh my goodness, was this the best ever experience for myself and my dog, Phoenix. My beautiful lab was 2 1/2 years old with way too much energy for me to manage. A young man in the military contacted me, met with us, and was just as excited as Phoenix was. This man is stationed in Alaska but was coming to this area for a few months so he took this opportunity to connect with us. The new owner has been keeping me up to date with the progress they are making, sending me pictures, and allowing me to feel confident in this choice, as hard as it was. Phoenix is hunting, fishing, running, training, and will be relocating to Alaska in a few weeks. So grateful for Rescue Me! and this experience. I know that I have made the right decision, and this amazing animal is getting what he needs and much more.

     I posted a husky I was fostering on Rescue Me!, and within two days I had a lot of responses. After talking to the families and their veterinarians I was able to place Kita in a wonderful home with everything I had hoped to find for her. She has a canine playmate, a couple feline playmates, two small humans, a large yard and adults to care for her. It is the perfect home for her and while she will be missed, there is satisfaction in knowing she has come so far and is able to find her forever home now. Thank you, Rescue Me!

     Bear came to the Pawsitive Changes rescue group in pretty bad mental condition. He was a five year old dog with extreme fear, never been on a leash, never taught any commands and was not neutered. His owner passed away and there sat his dog all alone. After four months of rehabilitating Bear's fear issues, we posted him on Rescue Me! Almost immediately people began to inquire about this gorgeous boy. After a few short interviews I new the right family had arrived. Bear loved them, showed respect and within three days was sitting between them in the car on his way to a new chapter in his life. Thank you, Rescue Me!, for being an awesome and easy website for all of our animals in rescue. Kenda

     Thank you Rescue Me! for your willingness to keep our beautiful Copper boy posted until the right home arrived. We were waiting for that ray of sunshine to walk in the door and understand him. Thanks to Rescue Me! she found him, came and met him and adopted him. Two days later sent an email with a video of my sweet copper running 5 miles on the beach with her. They do it every morning. Yeah, Copper!

     Within hours of posting Reece on Rescue Me!, I received an email inquiring about him. We met two days later. I could not have found a more loving, caring home for my dog! The woman that responded to my post was just as much an animal lover as I! They seemed to be off to a great start before I even left him at his new home. His new family made the transition as easy on him as possible. As soon as I met her I knew she was the right fit for Reece. There is now a bond between two families that is very special! We will continue to communicate and she is even going to send pictures as he grows. A very positive experience! I would recommend this website to anyone who needs to find a home for their pit! Thank you so much!

     My name is sherry and my dog Chippers and I just recently lost our home. I posted on Rescue Me! to find Chippers a new home. Just before he was to be put in the pound where he most likely would be put to sleep, a no kill shelter contacted me and by the grace of God they agreed to take him. If it was not for Rescue Me!, Chippers would have lost his life. Thank you, Rescue Me!, for all you have done for my little Chippers. Sherry Baker

     I am so proud to have found Rescue Me! I adopted Jerry and Fran and we couldn't be happier. We love Boxers and they have fulfilled our dream for the perfect and most precious dogs ever. They are so happy, playful, and very healthy due to the foster parent loving animals as much as we do. Jerry and Fran are adjusting well and have made themselves at home. They are so loving and fill my day with joy. I am disabled, and this is the best therapy you can ask for. Thank you to Rescue Me! and also to Mr. Chatfield for keeping and loving them so much.

     I found Sammy on Rescue Me! and fell in love right away. I have five bloodhounds and am very familiar with the breed. They are stubborn, slobbery, big, clumsy and the most lovable animals I've ever owned. I own land and a old farm house, perfect for the breed. Fenced in yard and land to roam. Now with six they outnumber the two adults and two children. We picked up Sammy yesterday and so far everything has been going so well. We are introducing the hounds to him slowly since Sammy has special emotional needs, but he has warmed right up to the humans and my Cindy Lu, who is the oldest of the hounds. Our home is run by our four legged children, and I always warn people that if they do not want slobber, hair and over 100 pounds of a lap dog to welcome them, then we will go to their home. Because this house is really theirs, run by the hounds. Thank you, Rescue Me!, we love our Sammy, and I'm sure he will not be the last.

     We had to re-home our wonderful dog due to having a new baby, and he was just too much for me being such a high energy dog. I hated the idea of a shelter and wanted to personally pick his new mommy and daddy. I posted on Rescue Me! knowing nothing about it, but loved the idea behind it... I got an email and within a week he was going home with his new parents. The situation was perfect, and exactly what we wanted for him. I know he is with the right people who will give him everything! This site is wonderful and the perfect way to help find a new home if you are unable to care for your pet!

     I had to find a new home for Wiley and I knew it was going to be a huge challenge and just down right awful. I knew Wiley deserved a good home and I was not going to settle for any thing less than perfect. Within one week of posting him on Rescue Me!, I received more than ten inquiries from people looking for a dog just like Wiley. ...After meeting with a wonderful family of five, with two acres and three amazing kids, I knew that Wiley found a great home. After spending the afternoon with them and Wiley I was able to leave knowing that he was going to be one of the happiest dogs around! Thank you Rescue Me!, and thank you to the awesome family who made Wiley one of their own!

     In the beginning, I was a bit leery of posting Sailor online, but to my surprise, Rescue Me! was a VERY easy and quick process. Within a day, Sailor was sought out by a family, and two days later he was sought out again by another family... This family was in constant communication and continued to reassure me that Sailor would be well loved and cared for. I am 100% sure that Sailor will now be in a home that is better fitting for him, and will be able to go on long walks and have a mommy who will give him full attention. He will be able to grow up with another puppy and the family's son. Thank you, Rescue Me!, for allowing us to be able to re-home with reassurance.

     I am a retired teacher in Mountain Home, ID and I take in dogs that need to be re-homed from the local shelters or from private parties. I started doing this a few years ago after I had to part with my poodle, Lambchop, who had been with me for 23 1/2 years. Hailey has been very popular and quickly found her new home with a family thrilled to have her. Her wonderful personality won over a great family within a day of the post coming out. I had many calls on her, and when I had to tell people she was gone, they asked about others I had gotten since placing her post. Two more little girls (a yorkie mix and a chihuahua mix) were re-homed as well. Thank you for the opportunity to let people know these great dogs are available. Judging from the number of calls I got, there are a lot of people who use Rescue Me! when they start looking for a new family member.

     I had been looking for a few months to find the right Shih Tzu for my parents who just less than 6 months ago lost there Shih Tzu to illness. My parents did not want another breed, it had to be a Shih Tzu. They did not want to raise a puppy, as the puppy could outlive them. My search for a Shih Tzu was a long and sad road until I found Rescue Me! I immediately e-mailed the owner of Dolice, and he answered my e-mail within the hour. In the meantime I forwarded the photo of Dolice to my parents and they knew right away that she was the dog for them. I reassured the prior owner Dolice would be an only child. Yes, I did say child, as my parents will treat this dog just like a child. Dolice, you are in good hands. You will be treated like a Queen. My experience with Rescue Me! was wonderful, I just wish I had found it sooner. Thanks to Mr. Gold for adding tips to get the dog we wanted. One tip was to act fast, and glad I did act fast, as the owner had just put Dolice on this site one hour before I called. So my suggestion to new people who are looking for that perfect dog, act fast, do not wait... Thanks to all who had a part in getting this sweet baby to my parents. Teresa

     I received no less than 25 inquires in less than 24 hours since posting my sweet Kiwi on Rescue Me! Each and every person I spoke with had owned a Corgi in the past or currently owned a Corgi. I narrowed the list down to three potential families, and am happy to report that she was adopted by my first choice family. I chose a couple that had lost their 13 year old Corgi last February, and who had no other pets. Kiwi's new Dad is in full remission from cancer treatments last year and is also recently retired. He and Kiwi are going to be wonderful companions to each other and become great buddies. She will be the #1 VIP in her new home. She's a lucky girl and I couldn't be more excited for her and her new family. Thanks so much to Rescue Me! and to Bonnie for the assistance and guidance in helping Kiwi to find her new fur-ever home.

     I had these beautiful girls since they were babies and fell upon financial problems. I came across Rescue Me! and I am so glad I did. There were so many wonderful people who called about my girls and I had a very hard time in making a decision. I really wanted someone who stayed home and would fuss over them and love them as much as I do. I do believe I have found that person. I met a wonderful lady who lost her husband, and these girls are a true blessing to her now. She now has two beautiful girls to play with and lift her heart. I am so blessed to have found someone that will love them as I do. Thank you to everyone who has offered to take my babies as this has been one of the hardest things to do. The Rescue Me! site has helped me in being able to make a choice for my girls. Thank you! Thank you, Jeff.

     We found our new 5-year old boy Peyton a few days after we lost our Beagle of 14 years to heart failure. Actually, it's probably more like Peyton found us. His most recent owner reluctantly wanted to find a more appropriate home for him because she was taking a new job that would not have allowed her to spend the time with Peyton that he needs to be a happy boy. We love the little guy to death and we're grateful to Rescue Me! and to his previous owner, without which Peyton would never have found us.

     Lily was adopted immediately. Because the adopting family lived here locally, we were able to drop her off. It was wonderful to meet the family and see the home where she resides now. Lily seemed to immediately take to the house and the family, spreading her kisses all around! I am so grateful to Rescue Me! for helping with this adoption at no charge. It's amazing the quick responses I received. Old English Sheepdog fans are truly Sheepdog fans! They are such wonderful, loving, fun dogs. Today I received an e-mail expressing total love for Lily. She was just what their hearts needed after losing their Sheepdog a year ago. Thank you, Jeff, for founding this wonderful organization. It was a difficult decision to adopt Lily out, but a necessary one. Making it so easy took a lot of pain out of the process. A donation will be made this year to help keep this organization running.

     Chopper and his 'sissie' have gone to a wonderful family about an hour away. They are now living on a 20-acre horse ranch and are thoroughly enjoying it. I miss them but their new family is keeping in contact with me about their adventures. Thanks so much to Rescue Me! I was so afraid I was going to have to take them to the shelter. Chopper had been through a hard life before I got him. He was used as a bait dog in fights at only 10-weeks old. So you could imagine how bad it was before we got him. My husband died last August and I'm having to move. I couldn't take him or his 'sissie' but Rescue Me! was there, not only for them but for me as well. I would have felt so guilty if I would've had to take them to the shelter but now I feel they both got the home they deserve. Thank you Rescue Me! and thank you Chopper and Karma's new family.

     I was saddened to find Rosco had been chained around the neck so tight that he could hardly breath! I was very glad that I was able to rescue him, and he jumped right into the car. He now runs on a fenced half an acre with my other pit, and sleeps in the house. Because he was not worked with before, we are now working on manners, house breaking and the basics. He is eager to please. I can't wait for the head halter and lead that I ordered to arrive so we can work on walking.

     After being diagnosed with a rare illness at the age of 42, I knew I had to make a very difficult decision to rehome my purebred male Bichon Frise, Chandler. Even though I love him, I could no longer physically keep up with his demands on my time and energy. My only concern was in finding him the best home possible. After receiving 12 responses within the first 24 hours, I made the decision to hold a meet-n-greet at a local dog park with the family I thought could meet his needs best. Coincidentally, they were the first ones to contact me about him. Some of my requirements were that the family have young children, other dogs, and a fenced yard, all of which I knew he needed to thrive. We ended up staying at the park for quite a while visiting and watching the children run around and play with Chandler. What a fun time they had! Chandler, my boy, went to his forever home that day. I spent some time crying afterward, tears of sorrow and joy at the same time. I knew in my heart I did the right thing. I want to express my thanks and gratitude to Chandler's new family for giving him a loving, caring home and to the founder of Rescue Me! for this wonderful site. Thank you for giving special pets their second chance! - Traci

     I knew the minute I saw Lilly on Rescue Me! that she was going to be my new furry daughter! Such a gorgeous girl! My husband and I are so excited to get to know her and welcome her to our family. She will now have a brother German Spitz and a sister Pomeranian to play with, and lots of room to run. All our 'children' have couch and bed privileges so Lilly will be very happy! Thank you, Rescue Me!

     I am very grateful to Rescue Me!, Maggie found a new home within one week. I had many responses from a lot of wonderful people willing to offer Maggie a new loving home. I would recommend Rescue Me! to anyone who may find themselves in a financial crisis or simply realizes that their friend and companion may need more than one can offer. I believe being a responsible dog owner is important. For myself the dog pound was not an option. I love Maggie and wanted her to have more than I could give. I had the pleasure of sharing eight years with her, and I hope her new owner Donna will share in the pleasure in her senior years. Thank you again. Best Regards, Catherine Vernetti

     I rescued Boss from a garage that he had been abandoned in for close to a week. He had no food, water, not even a blanket to keep him warm. A friend that knew the previous owner of Boss, told me they had moved from the house to Ohio four or five days earlier and they said they were coming back the next day for him. After a few days this friend was walking by and heard the dog's screams, and him frantically pawing and scratching at the door. Knowing how I am about animals, my friend let me know the situation. I contacted the police. I was told that there was nothing they could do. I explained that I was going after the dog, and, that if they got a call that some girl was trespassing at the abandoned house next door, that it would probably be me. I looked into the house to make sure I wasn't stealing someone's dog, it was obviously abandoned. I got a piece of metal twisted into the lock and opened the door not knowing what to expect. Boss, shied away. I extended my hand to him and spoke quietly and let him know that I loved dogs and I was just there to help him. He looked me over and smelled my hand, then just came into my arms. I hugged him for a minute. It was so cold! I placed a leash on his collar, and led him to the car. I opened the door and tail wagging, he jumped inside to meet my 12-year old daughter, Kayla. He greeted her by smelling her hair and a big wet kiss. I dried the snow off him and he laid on her lap. The roads were bad so what normally took us 15 to 20 minutes took us 45-50 minutes, and Boss got up occasionally to check the roads and give me a kiss. Then laid back on Kayla's lap. Got him home, made sure he didn't look like he needed any immediate medical attention. No sores, clear skin except a little dandruff. His weight was low though. His ribs were very visible. I checked the his skin to see if he was overly dehydrated, looked at his teeth and couldn't believe how truly beautiful this guy was. I started him eating food and making sure he had plenty of water at all times. He came into our home and made it his, and was so happy that sometimes he looked as if he was smiling. He has the most innocent and just funny, personality. You could not help but fall in love with him. I am not in a situation where I can't keep another dog. I am a pit bull mommy already, as well as a pom-poo mommy. Not to mention the cat and two lizards. I had to find this good guy a home and fast. I refused the thought of the 'Humane Society' as I know the horror stories. After screening quite a few calls... The person on the the other end had suffered the tragic loss of her beloved pit. I could feel her pain because I know that pain. We instantly hit it off. Everything about her and her family was perfect for Boss. Boss went home tonight. There were many tears. My daughter and I took plenty of pictures. Gave him plenty of hugs, and got to share in the laughter of his silliness, just one more time. I am grateful for Loretta and Steven and their family. He deserves such wonderful people as you, and you him. Many, many blessings. I know he will enrich your lives, as much as you will enrich his. Thank you for making such a good dog, a loved and safe dog. Many years of happiness, love and laughter to you all.

     Unfortunately, we have to move into a senior community and were sadly unable to take my girls, Cassie and Lacey, with us. They could not be separated because they are extremely close. I had them for seven years and it's been quite a struggle in doing this. However, we are so blessed to have someone contact us who wanted both girls. They live in the country and will be putting up a fence for the girls this spring. The girls have become so much more active living in a house, rather than an apartment. They have all bonded very well. The best part of it for me in grieving, is that the new owners send me pictures of the girls doing different activities and stories. This has helped me so much. I know they miss us as we were so close to them, but they now have walks, more playtime, etc., that were became unable to do. Thank you so much for Rescue Me! We will be sending a contribution as soon as possible.

     My German Shepherd crossed with Lab was in desperate need of a loving home with a big yard. After listing her on Rescue Me! I received a call from a gentleman that has a farm who was looking for a companion for his 9-year old Labrador. We took Sally to them over the weekend and the place was an absolute dream. Sally immediately felt at home, and loved nothing more than to run around and explore. We spent some time there to let her adapt to the new surroundings. Peter and his wife are extremely loving and caring people and they committed to loving Sally as much as we do. Judging from the way their other animals is being treated, I have no doubt that Sally found the best home ever.

     Such an ideal outcome! We wanted to find a home for Riley that was a good fit, and had actually turned down a couple potential adoptees. Then, one day I got a call from Kathy, and we chatted for a bit about why she would want to adopt Riley. They'd lost a Jack Russell last summer, and were looking for a 'sibling' for their other Jack Russell. It sounded like Riley would get lots of attention and even have someone to play with. Kathy showed up with pictures of her doggies and Riley looked just like her lost Jack, except for hers had more white coloring. Riley, being the smart guy that he is, knew something was up and was anxious but jumped right up to the passenger seat of her car and after giving me lots of smooches rode home with her. Kathy texted me that night to let me know that he was doing very well, and she was even getting kisses already! My heart is happy.

     I am disabled and at home all the time, so I was looking for a companion to keep me company during the day to help me get a little exercise by going for short walks and playing. I went straight to Rescue Me! to help me find the dog I was looking for. The website was so helpful by letting me search by breed for dogs in my state that needed to find a new home, and that led me to Penny! When I saw her picture, I thought she looked so sweet, and reading the details posted by her current owner I knew she was the puppy I was looking for. I called the phone number listed in the post to arrange to meet Penny, and when she arrived at my house I instantly fell in love. It has been a week so far, and we have quickly become best friends. We go on walks and play throughout the day. Penny has brought so much joy into my life, and I wouldn't have found her if not for the help of Rescue Me!

     We found Bella wandering in our rural area almost six months ago. I had seen her many times before close to our house, and thought she belonged to one of our neighbors. Then, one morning as I was on my way to work, I saw her out on the main highway. I was afraid she would get hit by a car, so I stopped and intended to coax her into my car and take her back, and later find out who owned her. She didn't need any coaxing, but whimpered and all but jumped into my arms. She was dirty and had some splotches of tar on her. We cleaned her up and took pictures of her and posted online and in the neighboring grocery store, vets office, laundry mat, etc. No one ever claimed Bella, so we posted her on Rescue Me! We didn't have too long to wait until a nice man called about Bella. After emailing back and forth, we chose a place to meet, and on a Saturday morning Bella met her new family. It was so very heartwarming and satisfying to find someone who will give her a forever home, and love her as much as she deserves! Thanks, Rescue Me!

     Yoshi needed a new home with a patient family to take care of him. He had showed continued guarding behavior toward my girlfriend, probably from when he was tossed out as a stray at less than five months of age. Our local Eskimo Dog rescue wasn't active, and leads from friends weren't getting anywhere, so I turned to Rescue Me! for help. There were many people who showed interest in Yoshi - some potential adopters were not good fits, while others had a lot of potential. However, one of the first people who turned in an adoption application also consistently showed that she was on top of things. She traveled for three hours with her daughter to come visit us and my girlfriend, and we were very impressed by her calm but commanding demeanor, as well as her straightforwardness. Yoshi probably sensed it, too, as he immediately took a liking to both her and her daughter. The treats probably helped, too. They were the only ones granted a second visit, and after making sure everything was in order, Yoshi went on a long journey to his new home... Without Rescue Me!, I don't think we would have met Yoshi's new owner. The whole process of pre-screening and interviewing people would not have gone so smoothly otherwise, as well, so thank you for providing this service. And, thank you Pam and Beth for taking Yoshi in. Rick Tang

     First, wanted to start by thanking the staff of Rescue Me! for their work and dedication! The site Rescue Me has been a huge asset in find homes for many of our animals within our small rescue. While we only have 40 animals that are ready for adoption at a time, the Rescue Me! site has given us the highest response from potential adopters out of the three sites we use. This site also makes it easier for us to identify who a potential adopter is interested in. After Christmas I received a wave of emails on a number of our animals, Blossom a Poodle/Maltese mix being one of them! While sorting through applicants and emails, one family was very persistent and patient with us. When it came to our adoption event day, I emailed and called a few of the families that I believed would be a good fit for her, and shared our location hoping a couple of them would at least come meet her. The Sweeney family came - the whole family - grand parents, parents and grandkids, all of them fell in love with her even with her pink Mohawk reminiscent from the previous weekend of being dolled up to parade around Glendale Glitters. After sharing with them her story of rescue, her accomplishments and a couple things we hoped they would continue working on, and some friendly advice from a partnered behavioral trainer that was there for the day, the Sweeney family adopted Blossom! We couldn't be happier with the match! As we all know any adoption is bitter sweet, but leaves a foster home open for the next animal to learn to love again, and find their forever home! Thank you again, Rescue Me! Chasity Cross, Mavyn Animal Rescue, Behavioral Training Director

I found Rescue Me! and received overwhelming responses to the dog. I was very pleased with the efforts some individuals were going through to help this guy find a lovely home. A lovely girl had come over to the house to meet the dog. The girl fell instantly in love with him, and decided right then and there to take him home. I am happy that he found his forever home and that the girl's personality was similar to the dog. Lovely, bouncy, and happy to be with one another. She keeps me updated on the dog and I couldn't be any happier. This site helped all three of us have a happy ending!

     I tried so many different ways to find the perfect home for my best friend of almost nine years, Amber. With no quality or serious inquiries on other sites, I began to get discouraged. I did not want to give her up at all and I never thought I would have to find her a new home, but life has its way of changing things unfortunately. I was contacted only a week after posting on Rescue Me! by someone very interested in Amber. We swapped emails, spoke on the phone, and arranged a time to meet. She is such a sweet person and showed up with everything Amber would possibly need... a new bed, toys, treats, food, etc. She reassured me that Amber would be cared for and loved, and that she would send me lots of pictures and updates all the time! I truly could not have handpicked a better person to adopt my baby. She came this morning to meet and pick Amber up and although I was a blubbery mess, she was so sweet and hugged me and let me know I have nothing to worry about. When Amber got to her new home, I received a few very sweet picture messages to let me know she was settling in well. Thank you so much, I could not have asked for a better experience or a more perfect new home!

     Our heartfelt thanks go out to Jeff Gold and all the people that work or volunteer at Rescue Me! Within hours of making the post for this precious little Doxie, Emma, we starting getting responses via e-mail and some called! The decision of having to let go of a dog is never easy - we were heartbroken - but our other Doxie that we raised as a puppy and who is now 6 1/2 just did not want another dog living in her home. Through Rescue Me! we were able to be in contact with many interested people, this allowed us to select just the right home for Emma. It was important to us that she have a big, fenced in backyard, she now lives with a loving family, a stay at home Mom and Dad, on a small farm with a huge backyard, and a doggie door so she can go in and out as she wants! Emma now has a family that can give her all of the love and attention that she so desperately wants and needs. Wonderful! Thanks so much to Rescue Me! We plan to make a donation, and encourage everyone that has used this great website to do the same. If you have had results, whether it be to adopt a pet or that you needed to put a pet up for adoption, just think about how you just cannot put a dollar amount on the value when it comes to the love we get from our little furry friends!
