     My Rescue Me experience was awesome. I greatly respect the background checks that they made to make sure I was not a dog fighter, breeder or a hoarder. It is our job to protect these babies. I would definitely use them again to adopt. I will recommend this organization to all my friends looking for furbabies to love.

     I rescued Benji off the streets near my neighborhood and fostered him until I could find a new loving home for him. Just a few days after rescuing him, I received a message from a woman who was interested in adopting Benji. After talking on the phone with each other and going over everything, we both decided that Benji's new home would be a great fit for him! His new owner lives four hours away and can't wait to come and pick him up to take him to his new home. The woman loves to go on hikes and can't wait to have Benji join her! I am super excited for this new journey for Benji and his new owner! Thanks, Rescue Me!

     My family and I have to relocate to another state for a job promotion. Although we were very pleased to do so it came with a heavy heart that we had to rehome our beloved puppy, Kiki. Within hours of posting Kiki on Rescue Me we were getting calls (mostly local) to adopt her. We ended up finding a great family for her in a great location. We are extremely happy with Rescue Me and more importantly, knowing that Kiki will be well taken care of.

     We were looking for a second dog after the loss of our yellow lab, Otis. We thought we found him. We were told by the previous owner that Jack was not only good with other dogs but good with cats. Jack got along great with our springer, Marley. Unfortunately, we found out later that evening that he was not good with cats as he went after our boy, Geddy. We thought we could slowly introduce Jack to Geddy in time as his other dog qualities were pretty darn awesome. A week into it, we had to accept that it just wasn't going to work out. We decided we would foster Jack until we could find the perfect forever home for him. Out of the blue, we get a call from a gentleman from Montana, mind you we live in Idaho. He would love to meet Jack. Well, they made the long trek to Idaho and when they met, it was love at first sight. We knew they were the right family when a double rainbow appeared off in the distance. They loaded Jack into their RV. Jack jumped right in and went straight to the bed to lie down. Jack is off to Montana to spend the rest of his life with a wonderful retired couple from Montana who have a lot of land for him to run around and get lots of love and doggy kisses. My husband and I feel truly blessed that we were able to give Jack the perfect home through Rescue Me.

     Our lab Clayton, who was also a rescue, passed on at 16 years old. We found Zoey on Rescue Me and her picture with a big smile on her face. I knew she was the one for us.

     We found a eight month old pup in our field that somebody had dumped out and left and he very obviously had been abused. He was so fearful and timid that he would growl when you walked up to him, we were able to get him safely to our house and began the search for a home . The local shelter advised us that they usually use a nice black dogs very quickly because there are so many of them and people usually don't adopt a black dogs, add that he was timid in growling a little bit and they most certainly would've seen him his feral and put him down . All the no kill shelters were full so we stumbled across Rescue Me and posted him, within an hour a beautiful young couple made arrangements to visit. Today, he went home with his new family. Without, Rescue Me he would not have had a chance at the life he deserved. Thank you for this service that is so desperately needed and works so well! God answered our prayers through your website! Thank you, Rescue Me!

     We were so pleased to find Nacho on Rescue Me. When we went to meet her, she was very timid and scared. I initially only agreed to foster her for a week to see how she would do in our home. Within four days, I let the rescue know that our family wanted to adopt her. She has become a great companion for our beagle mix and dachshund and is healing their hearts after the loss of their furry brother. She has also become very attached to my young daughter and is so loving with her. She has really come out of her shell and has quickly stolen the hearts of everyone she meets. Thank you so much for bringing rescued animals and their forever families together!

     I left a message at Hardee Animal Clinic, HART aka Hardee Animal Rescue Team that works out of the clinic that we were wanting two mastiff mutt puppies. Shannon called and talked to my husband about the puppies, he was not sure about them. I was told HART used Rescue Me so I have been looking on occasion at the website. It was nice to be able to look up the puppies and see a picture before I emailed Shannon through your website that we would like a meet and greet. What would greatly improve your website would be to have it set up not just by states but by counties. Instead of all of Florida I could look at just the animals in Hardee county up for adoption. This would be really helpful for the Lab dogs only 180 in Florida to surf through which takes a long time! These puppies were not listed under HART so looking just at there postings these puppies did not show up, they were in Polk county which again if you could look at just the counties close to where you live it would speed up the search. With three rescue cats and two puppies, it should be a very long time before we need to use your website again, but it's a great way to help find homes for homeless pets.

     Rusty won the lottery for sure. After many replies of interest, an actual adoption, and a trial adoption - both of which fell through - Rusty finally found his forever home. He now resides with a loving couple who have another dog, named Rusty!! The two Rustys became fast friends and are the perfect playmates and companions. After all Rusty went through, including being dumped at a high-kill shelter where his brother was euthanized, enduring treatment for heartworm and a myriad of intestinal parasites, he deserves only the best. The new owners now find two Rustys on their bed each night! Rescue Me was the perfect forum to find prospective adopters.

     Nibbles has found a home a couple of hours away. The folks who adopted her are experienced Lab owners and plan to train Nibbles to be a Therapy Dog, at which I think she will excel. The grandchildren already like her, when they met in our yard. We plan to visit in the spring. Very glad that Nibby is getting used to the new surroundings. The family report that Nibbles is sleeping on a dog bed and comfortable in the house. Thanks, Rescue Me!

     I have adopted a wonderful, loving, respectful, caring puppy, 14 weeks of age through Rescue Me. I love everything about this experience from the caregiver to the transporters. I knew I had the right one when I first saw her, and by no doubt, getting to know her now, I love her. My only thing that had me bummed was, she was so infested with fleas. I gave her a bath twice, sprayed frontline on her, and used the fleas brush, continuously for three hours, straight. I know dogs get fleas, it's my job to continue to prevent that. I just wished it didn't start off so flea infested.

     We live in the country and often have abandoned dogs at our door. My friend, Karyel, told me about Rescue Me and when the last dog, a black lab mix, was abandoned at our home she posted his information for me. In a few weeks, a very nice couple drove TWO hours to our home to meet Blackjack and instantly fell in love with him. Since then, I've had a great update and it looks like Blackjack is loved and happier than ever. I'm sending our donation and hoping this site stays up for a long time. Thanks for making this adoption possible.

You need to check out if previous pets received their yearly vaccinations. Thanks, Rescue Me!

     My husband and I have wanted a Chocolate Lab for a very long time, but the opportunity was on the table when a co-worker was on your site. I got on, and Remmie was one of the first dogs to pop up, and it was Love at first site! I emailed from the Link, and Remmies owner got back with me very quick! I sent her pics of my family and dog, and told her how much I would love to have Remmie, and we connected almost immediate, I gave her my number, we started texting questions etc., and she said she would love for us to adopt her! Two days later, I drove two hours to get her, and now I have the best Chocolate Lab ever, and a new friend. The site was extremely easy to use! Thank you, Rescue Me! We now have our dream dog!

We miss her like crazy, but we are so very thankful that she chose a great home! Thank you, Rescue Me!

     Thank you Rescue Me for helping me to find a wonderful new home for my Slugger (aka Sluggy-bug). From the pictures and numerous texts I have received from his new owner, it is a great fit. I was so worried that he would not find a good home. I prayed and cried for weeks just thinking about having to re-home him, but we were gone all of the time with work, business, children, sports and elderly sick parents. He sure looks happy in the pictures and his new owner says that he has even met the neighbors now and everyone just loves him. I'm so relieved and happy. Thank you and God bless this organization. If I ever decide to get another pet one day down the line, when our lives are less busy and stressful, this will be the first place I look. I will also tell my family and friends about you, too.

They love her and we know that she will be cared for properly! She is a sweet girl for sure. Thank you, Rescue Me!

     We received an inquiry from KR just after she visited another family in our area. The mother made the contact with us by phone. She was willing to once again return to our area so she and her children (and a family friend) could meet BeBe to see how she behaved. We wrote an agreement outlining the arrangement and her responsibilities to take our dog back to her home for a couple of weeks to acclimate and to meet her husband. We texted often to discuss behaviors and ideas. This morning she sent us a lengthy email accepting BeBe into their family on a permanent basis! We agreed to contact our vet for her records and will forward them. Thank you, Rescue Me! This was sad for us, but we know BeBe found a 'forever' home with a new loving family. Thank you for providing a website that made this situation possible.

     I have been looking for quite a while for an adult Lab that was healthy, mature, and past the puppy stage. I looked at several sheltered dogs, online websites, and even seriously thought about another breed, besides a lab. In my area of the northwest, this type of Lab is hard to come by and was getting very discouraged. Then about a week ago, I saw a new post on Rescue Me by a lady fostering/adopting out a seven year old female lab about 100 miles south of me by the name of Maisey. Everything sounded great, made an appointment to meet her with my wife's small spayed Yorkie/Maltese mix of 15 months. We all just clicked immediately, even Molly, our small dog liked her. We were able to obtain all of Maisey's items {two beds, bowls, all vet paperwork, etc.} from her foster, and after about an hour, Maisey was on our way to her new home near a huge lake, and halfway up a mountain. Have had her three days now, and we made our first two mile round trip down to the lake for a swim. She loves water, and now exhausted and is sound asleep on the floor next to me. She is a perfect fit, well mannered, obedient, healthy, and after such a long search, was well worth it. She is a keeper. Anyone searching for a particular type dog in mind, don't give up, there is one out there, and when you least expect it, will show up!

     Gator Bear was rescued by a couple who loves the companionship of dogs and he even gets to live and sleep indoors like he did with me. They checked him over with their experienced vet who actually called me to let me know how pretty Gator Bear is. They told me that I could visit him, and check on him anytime which I do. That meant the world to me. They are both business owners nearing retirement and have a beautiful home they opened up to share with Gator Bear. I can't tell you how relieved I am knowing that he is taken care of, the way that animals should be. Thank you Rescue Me! Finding a loving forever home for my best friend was manageable, however, I don't want to say easy only because I screen people carefully only because I want what is best and not quick. But that is a personal preference. If you do want to find a home for your furry friend, I would suggest using Rescue Me as a tool. You won't need any other. Thank you, again.

He had multiple sores from flea and fly bites, was severely underweight and left chained up in a yard with no shelter. His owners were being evicted and made no plans for the dog. The owners were agreeable to the ladies taking the dog. He was then taken to the vet for an exam, has been given his vaccinations, wormed and was then placed in a foster home. Thanks to all the rescue groups, he found his forever home and we can only wish many happy adventures for Rocko and his new family.

     The last year or so I've been considering getting a puppy, then on a recent camping trip with friends someone had their new puppy with them. The camping trip with that little dog effected all of us. It made my mind up that the time is right, and truthfully, it is. I have lots of time to spend bonding with a pet this summer. Rescue Me made the search very easy. I never had to leave the house. Once I identified the puppy for me, the process was quick and easy. Can't wait until my companion arrives. Thanks to all the staff at Rescue Me for walking me through the process.

His first post didn't get many results and I lost his ID number. So he was posted again with a different picture and in less than two hours, his perfect fit called me. It was a prayer answered and now he will be the center of attention and will be in a home that has time to train him and give him the life he deserves! I am so appreciative of Rescue Me. Both of my sweet dogs have found their homes and families that are so wonderful!

After searching for a new addition to their family for months, they saw Sadie on Rescue Me and simply knew she was the one. After driving from St. Louis to North Carolina to pick her up, Sadie now has a new home with acres to run that backs up to a preserve. She's camping this weekend and they had a 'welcome to the neighborhood' Tiki party in her honor. Sadie will now be living the life all dogs dream of and certainly deserve. Welcome to your new home, Sadie Girl!

     We got Gracie from a local shelter with the prediction that she would be 30 pounds full grown. When she topped out at 57 pounds and began jumping over our fences, we knew it wasn't fair to keep her here in the country without adequate fences. We posted her on the wonderful Rescue Me site and had two families who wanted her. Yesterday, we adopted her to a lady who lives on a lake. Gracie was very friendly with the lady from the moment the two met and I believe she will have a wonderful life. Thank you, Rescue Me and Jeff Gold, for creating this site where pets can find the homes they need and deserve.

     I am so very thankful to have found this sweet young lab mix on the Rescue Me site! Barley is such a sweet boy, with a loving, affectionate disposition! He had been living in a shelter for over four months last winter waiting for adoption. One lucky spring day I showed up looking to adopt. Barley's life now is filled with hugs and love and he truly seems very grateful. He gets along wonderfully with his new brother, my eight year old German Wirehair/Flat-coated Retriever mix. This energetic boy eagerly looks forward to our daily runs in the forest and soon we will be backpacking together. Thank you Rescue Me!

     Willow rescued us. She loves as much love and affection she can get. She is very smart and most of the time she minds well. It was over 3 years before she would not take off if the front door was open. She would run down the street and ignore us calling her. We would have to get in the car and go after her. Open the door, call her, and she would jump right in. She loves car rides. She has one quirk that we cannot figure how it started. If you tell her to go outside, she stares at you. If you try and force her, she becomes dead weight. If you walk out with her, she will go. If you open the door and walk away, she goes out. She has a very strong reaction to fireworks, tires that blowout on the freeway behind us, and any sharp, short noise. She tries to melt into you and she just vibrates once you hold her. She now has a sister that's six months older than her. They mostly get along great. Bella loves to play. I think Willow is learning to play. It is so sad that she didn't know how to play when she was a year old. She is still unsure of people, but she's getting better. We love her so much. We've always had 'talkers' and her daddy is teaching her to talk. I'm so glad we found her. Thank you, Rescue Me!

     Thank you, Rescue Me! Little Bella has been adopted. She now lives in a big house with a big yard, a big swimming pool and LOTS of love. She has a sister, Maggie, who is a big Labrador. Maggie has taught Bella not to be afraid anymore. The two of them are inseparable. They eat together, sleep together, play together go swimming together and then at night they go sleep with Mom in her big bed. I had a lot of wonderful people contact me through Rescue Me. Thank you! I had been warned that there ARE bad people out there who pretend to be good so that they can adopt these animals to harm them. You might want to warn people and advise them to be extra careful about who adopts. Ask questions, screen, go to the home and examine it and try to get a sense for the adopters while you are at it. If there is anything you don't like, don't do it. Wait till you find someone good. You can never be too careful these days. The little animals are completely helpless and it is our responsibility to make sure they are safe and loved and fed and warm and well taken care of. Thanks again, Rescue Me! You truly make the world a better place!

     I posted my dog for adoption on Rescue Me and got a reply that evening for adoption possibility. We talked on the phone and arranged meeting few days later. The home and the family were perfect for my dog. We spent around two hours with the family. Even though we planned to come back later, we ended up leaving our dog with a new family that night. We kept in touch that evening and next day. We took the rest of the dog's belongings, medical and health records next day to her new home. The dog and her new family looked very happy. I am so excited for a new life for my dog. Thank you Rescue Me, for a great help to connect us with the perfect family.

     Our sweet boy, Diesel, now has a new home and a brand new playmate too! So glad I got in touch with Rescue Me! I had no idea how we could find another loving home after my son's accident. It was as if Diesel found heaven (with lots of room to roam)! Once he jumped out of the car and checked out his new forever home, he was all smiles. Glad I got in touch with Rescue Me. Thank you!

She was lucky enough to be in the process of being adopted. Then I saw Chloe! My boyfriend and I looked at several older dogs and applied to adopt. We never heard back. Thank goodness I decided to visit the puppies! We plan on giving her a long healthy happy life! Thank you, Rescue Me!

     Sweet Misha is the perfect dog, loving, loyal, house trained, perfect on the leash and with other dogs and people. She was empathetic and would just melt into anyone who would let her near them. Luckily, after being pulled out of the local shelter by our rescue, then treated for heartworms, then remaining here for months recovering and enjoying our foster home with the other animals, she caught the eye of a pastor who was looking for the perfect dog to join her in her home. Knowing that the dog had to be loving and accommodating to those who came there in a crisis and hurting, Misha was the right dog for her. I am thrilled to have used Rescue Me to make that connection for this awesome dog. A black lab success story!

     My husband and I were at a crossroads as to what we should do about our dog. My husband is a musician in four bands so we are away from home a lot. And we thought about how our dog was alone more than we were able to spend time with him. I posted on Rescue Me on an evening. The next day, I had 14 phone calls and messages! The first call we received was a person out of town and she wasn't sure if it would work for her, but the second call was from a really sweet lady. She informed me that she and her husband had been looking for a dog and when she saw Bear's picture, she knew he was it! She and her husband came today and Bear went to his new home! Meeting the couple in person really made us feel that we made the right choice. We both know Bear is going to have a great life!

     Through a change in life circumstances, I had to make the truly painful decision to re-home my Lab mix. A couple contacted me who have a farm and just retired. They wanted a constant driving companion and couch buddy. When my dog met the couple, she immediately connected with both of them and off they went. I could not have done this without Rescue Me! Thank you for making a very painful time easier. I know she will be in a good place and very happy.

     Sasha found a wonderful home with a gal whose 14 year old dog passed away two years ago. She was finally ready to open her heart to another furry friend and Sasha captured her heart! Sasha is a sweet and loving companion who was found in the mountains of Kauai. Animal rescue wasn't sure how long, Sasha had been alone, but based on how timid and scared she was, we suspect she may have been feral. We adopted Sasha and brought her back to California in hopes of finding a loving home and a better life for her. Our two year old Viszla, Cooper, warmed up to Sasha and they quickly became best buds! I think Cooper helped Sasha gain confidence and feel at ease as she learned how to live in a home and be part of a family. When we realized it was time and Sasha was ready for a permanent home, we could not have asked for a better match with Shelly! During our Holiday visit with family, we took Sasha to spend a couple days with Shelly for a trial run. I'm glad to say it was a match made in heaven! We miss Sasha but are thrilled she is happy, thriving and making new friends! Thank you Shelly for opening your heart and home to Sasha! And thank you to Rescue Me for providing a safe, reliable service for placing animals In a good home! Sincerely, Kellie, Maddie and Michael

     I rescued Shine from our shelter where I volunteer. She was so shy and withdrawn. When I looked into her eyes, I knew I could not leave her there. I was able to foster her with a local rescue in the county. Her shyness was a barrier to her adoption. Someone saw her posting on Rescue Me and fell in love with her. Shine will stay with a great foster family who will help her move through some shyness and into the home of the adopter.

The women I dealt with from beginning to end was fantastic, very professional and loves her animals. Thank you Rescue Me for helping me find my forever family.

     As a Comedian, for well over 10 years, there's nothing funny about an animal having to find a new family after loosing the one that they believed was going to be forever. I can't express the support that this site has provided me in regards to finding homes for these animals. Usually, I would use social media and/or rescue resources that I've acquired over the years. I've received just as many inquiries through Rescue Me as I would have the old school conventional way. Jackson came to me with a surrender deadline of only a week to find a home. A willing adopter was found the day before Jackson was supposed to be surrendered... Whew! For me, searching for homes for animals is like a comedy career, you'll probably find more failures than success within your efforts as I'm sure most people and rescues on this site would agree. This forum gives us that extra resource to increase the probability of actually finding a home and eliminate, at least, some burden. I, again, can't thank the creator of this site and the supporters enough for their help and willingness to care. -Andre Gatling

     When I set out to start a rescue of my own after working for another shelter for six years I thought it would be a lot of work, but relatively simple. What I didn't realize was how long the 501c3 process would be to become a legal non-profit organization. I became nervous that all of the ways I was used to in my previous shelter to promote dogs would not be available to my new group for months while we worked towards non-profit status, but then I rediscovered Rescue Me. Your site was the only one where we did not have to be 501c3 yet, or interview at inconvenient times on the phone, or scramble to find a vet willing to write a formal reference for our organization before being willing to post our pets. Your site is focused on one thing: finding pets new homes. I was able to post our available animals the very day they arrived and this week with your help, Coco and Dio make the fifth and sixth official Wayward Ranch Animal Sanctuary adoptions, and every single one of those has been found through Rescue Me, and Rescue Me ALONE. Thank you for what you do for rescues and individuals that are just trying to do the right thing for their animals. Eleni Calomiris, Founding Director Wayward Ranch Animal Sanctuary
