     I would definitely recommend Rescue Me to anyone. I had four people interested in him within a week of posting him and several there after. Despite my efforts to place him on local animal rescues with no interests, Rescue Me brought by far the best results. Please donate to this page if you are able because this helps so many fur babies find another home which otherwise could have thrown into a possible death sentence. Thanks again Rescue Me!

     Thank you Rescue Me for your site! Our whole experience thus far has been wonderful! We have found our new member of our family! She is funny, energetic, loving and loves to give tons of kisses! She will be with us always! Thank you for doing what you do for all these wonderful animals!

     My dog Daisy, a white lab, found the best home a mother could ask for on Rescue Me. She went to a female physician whom it appears owns two homes, a beautiful car, swimming pool, and lots of doggy toys. She stated she will walk her everyday. She seemed like a very nice person and will make Daisy a wonderful owner. Thank you so much! Now if I could only adopt out the other fourteen dogs!

     We absolutely LOVE our sweet adopted yellow lab!!! Thank you so much, Rescue Me, for making this possible. He has been giving tons of love and kisses to all and enjoys the freedom of running full speed in our fenced backyard. Such a happy go lucky pup!

     Thanks, Rescue Me. I had lost my old Husky named Abbey to cancer suddenly. My remaining dog is 10 years old. I had been looking at puppies. I am not sure what I was thinking! A puppy is like a baby. Puppies wake up at night, require training and 100% if your attention. When I saw Roxy's picture, I could not believe she was 11 years old. She loves playing with squeaky toys, gets along with my older dog and my five year old Aussie. She likes my three cats too! Roxy walked into my home like she had always lived with me! I am so blessed to have her. My dogs love and enjoy her too. She has arthritis, but I do too! We both still have a lot of life and love to share! Adopting a senior dog has its perks and is so rewarding! A senior is totally grateful because it knows you saved it! A senior will love you forever unconditionally and remain your loyal companion. With all the love to share between me and her and between her and my other pets, she could live many more years to come! Just think! The old dogs know a lot before you get them, and they seem to hang around for so long when given love, a home , good food and some fun! Isn't that what every senior dog and older person wants? So adopt a senior pet! You will not regret it!

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

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

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

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

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

     I have been looking for a flat coated retriever who is male, not over 65 pounds, and gets along with cats too. I joined Rescue Me in October 2014 and have looked all over the country. I actually missed out on one male by being the second person in line. I have called people all over the US including breeders to see if they had an older male two-six years old- not a puppy. I was actually considering getting a purebred puppy, because I could not seem to find what I was looking for. This past Tuesday, I saw a Rescue Me alert. I saw this adorable male that gets along with kitties that is between one and two. I raced to my computer and found the rescue group and filled out an application. I got the contact person's phone number and decided I should call them in the morning since it was after midnight there. The next day, I ended up talking to to both women about Austin, resent my application, they called my references and told me I was approved by 6:00PM that night. What is so remarkable is the rescue group does transports of dogs to my state. I am scheduled to pick up Austin only 20 miles from our house! I am so thrilled! Austin is 40 pounds, laid back, and he is perfect. We do fosters, and my cats will appreciate a laid back guy. He was pulled out of animal control and put into a foster family. I really wanted a rescue in memory of my rescued Fella, a flat coated retriever mix, who passed away over two years ago. He was my special boy. I am so appreciative of Rescue Me. Without this site, I would have never found Austin. Thank you so very much.

     We had immediate inquiries from Boot's post on Rescue Me. We had lots of interest and were able to ask as many questions as we wanted to ensure she was getting a good home. We requested several visits and lots of information. We were able to request information such as previous vets, previous pets, any pet deaths, where they lived, pictures of the family, pictures of current pets, pictures of inside an outside of the home. In the end, we were able to choose an excellent home for her where she is spoiled a loved. They still continue to let us know how happy they are she is part of their family. We will always miss her, but it gives us comfort to know she is so happy! Thank you!

     I pull dogs from high kill shelters that have the country's highest euthanasia rate. Rosie was one of three dogs I took out of a shelter last week. I briefly placed her in a foster home to get a sense of her temperament, then posted her two nights ago on Rescue Me. The following day, I received a call from a potential adopter who has since met all the screening criteria and passed the home visit check. In one day, Rosie found a great home. I have adopted out several dogs through Rescue Me and rely on this site to save lots of dogs. Thank you!

     Our Paxton was adopted by a family six hours away. We had many texts and FaceTime with the to be owners. They are a family that is crazy about animals. They lost their lab to cancer. The whole experience went very well and we just saw pictures of Paxton settling into his new home. It was a very difficult thing to do, but we are confident Paxton is in a great new loving home. We will really miss him, but feel that his new owners will take good care of him. It was a good adoption!! Thanks, Rescue Me.

     It was divine intervention. I talked with my veterinarian about how to find my dog Casper a new home and he told me to check out Lab rescue sites. I went online and found the Rescue Me website right away and posted Casper's photo and bio information. The young couple that adopted him even did their 'new pet' shopping before even meeting Casper! My husband and I are sad about having to let him go, but we are also elated and full of joy that Casper will be well taken care of by sensitive and loving people! Praise be to God!

     Stryker found a FANTASTIC HOME!!! I was hoping they would adopt me, as well, as a package deal! LOL. He will have a summer cottage with a lake and a boat to go on; he will be running a couple times a day with his wonderful new owners.. And he is finally getting the attention and care he never had in his previous homes.. Granted, he is now like a puppy in a 6 year old dog's body. So he will be getting tamed down and has a very experienced Lab family to care for him.. Honestly, we could never have gotten a better home than we did here. Thank you again, Rescue Me!

     I lost my best friend, Cassy (an American Labrador), to cancer, and my Border Collie and I were heartbroken and needed a new best friend. There was no one here in my small town or surrounding area that I felt could fill her place. Then I found Rescue Me that let me look all over the country, and there she was, Raven. We jumped in the car and made the 870 mile trip to an even smaller town where we found Her. She is absolutely worth every rainy, snowy, hailing, windy mile we drove. She didn't get car sick, and was perfect in hotel rooms and smiled all the way. She's amazing and wonderful, and has a home with me for the rest of her life. Our home is once again- complete. Without you, Jeff and Rescue Me, I would never have known she existed.

     Dear Jeff and Rescue Me, We at Rescue Ranch are so excited about the door and the collaboration opportunity provided to us and to rescue through posting on your website. The National Disaster Search Dog Foundation (Darrell Wilkerson) contacted us inquiring about our post on Vadar. Many emails and video's later, one of the Foundations 'recruiters and evaluators' came to our shelter to meet Vadar. It was a great opportunity to connect with the Foundation and keep our eyes open in the future for the type of dog suitable for testing for their program. In the end, we tested four of our dogs and both Vadar and Vadar's shelter mate, Casper (lab - border collie) 'passed' all of the preliminary tests and are now in the Foundation's facility for further testing and evaluation. We are all hopeful that Vadar and Casper will continue to progress in their program. If you are not familiar with the National Disaster Search Dog Foundation, I recommend you check out their website and program. Helping rescue dogs become rescuers or finding their job as bomb detection dogs, therapy dogs and loved family companions. Thanks to Rescue Me and the National Search Dog Foundation for helping both Vadar and Casper on the road to success and a happy life.

Yes, she is an 'opportunist' (sneaking food or Kleenex whenever possible) and yes, she does hate small dogs. But the most fabulous family with a large property and amazing children to adore our Abbey came to our rescue thanks to my post here! We had the great joy of raising Abbey her first six years and now Abbey will have the great joy of her new family for her next six+ years!! Thank you, 'Rescue Me!'

I am so happy I was able to find her a home through a rescue site. I know people looking on a rescue site have amazing intentions and are not just looking for a 'puppy to BUY'. I felt confident that she was going to a good home where she will get the love and attention she deserves. Thank you for letting normal people post to the site, and not JUST rescue organizations.

     Thank you, Rescue Me. Mighty Rex found a new home with a young couple who worked as volunteers at a halfway boarding home for senior dogs. They fell in love with the big guy and wanted to adopt him and take him home. He is loving his new life with his 'furever' new home!

     Rescue Me came through for us in a big way. We put the word out on Facebook that we needed to find a new home for our labs, Bo and Angel. A cousin shared our post and one of their friends suggested your website. We immediately started getting solid leads from caring folks who really wanted our furbabies. We really wanted to keep them together, but most only wanted Angel. We finally decided to let Angel go on her own and a wonderful family drove over one hour to get her. They brought her a new collar, name tag and leash and we could tell they were really going to love her and take care of her. She texted me a pic of Angel at her new home and she looked so sad. The next day, we were supposed to take Bo to a friend who had agreed to adopt him, but we were hesitating... it just didn't seem like a good fit. As we were getting ready to leave, I got a text from the woman who adopted Angel. They wanted Bo too!! Bo and Angel were SO happy to see each other (they are married, you know)! We felt so much better knowing they were together and were in a loving home. I would highly recommend your organization and plan to make a donation.

     The hardest thing I had to do was to put my beloved Deacon Blues up for adoption, since he is a beautiful, exuberant, happy-go-lucky Lab, who was just a year old when we had to find him a new home due to uncertain financial and health reasons. I couldn't believe the responses we got! My problem was 'How to select a new family and the 'perfect match' for our 'perfect' (well, not exactly perfect---he is a Lab, after all, so 'mischief' was his middle name!) but isn't that exactly what 'make a Lab a Lab, and why we love them so much? I hope that in another year or so, we'll be able to adopt a Lab ourselves---this time one of three or four years of age, a little past the 'puppy' and 'adolescent' stage, and somewhat adult. Thank you, Jeff and Rescue Me.com! I hope to be back on your wonderful site again when it's time for a new family member; a 'canine kid' so to speak! Rescue Me, you do a wonderful job, and I can't even imagine how many wonderful dogs, Labs and all others, you've helped find furever homes. Keep up the good work!

     Brownie came into our rescue very pregnant. She was in horrible shape and this was compounded by the pregnancy. It took her a long time to regain her shiny coat and body condition after the pups were born, but eventually she became the very attractive chocolate Lab that she is today. After getting spayed, Brownie finally found the perfect home and I have heard that she is doing very well. Thanks, Rescue Me!!

     We rescued Zappa three weeks ago. She is such a good girl!! She has done wonderful transitioning to her new forever home. She went to the vets for a thorough check up. She is now up to date on all her shots. She did very well at the vets. She is enjoying all the attention she is getting along with all the visitors. She even did very well with her first furry friend sleepover. She is very smart and very gentle for her size. She has been such a blessing since we lost our 14 yr old dog. We are so glad we rescued her!!! Actually, she rescued us. Thank you, Rescue Me.

     Rocky was posted on Rescue Me and thanks to a search he has found his forever home!!!! Last weekend, Rocky had a meet and greet, which went off great. Rocky loved his adopter and is so happy when he sees him. We met the following day for Rocky to go home and when his new Dad pulled up Rocky knew he got so happy and excited. We rely on Rescue Me to share our fosters so they can find a great forever home and move out of rescue. We cannot thank Rescue Me enough for sharing all of our fosters helping us place them in a wonderful loving home.

     Your site is wonderful. We lost our eight year old yellow Lab in August due to kidney shutdown. We were devastated and kept checking Rescue Me daily. We found Mike, whom we loved at first sight. He is now part of our family and will go RVing with us and his sister, our little Chihuahua 'Lola'. We are a great family once again. We know our Rusty (yellow lab) would have wanted us to adopt another rescue. RIP Rusty we will always be in our heart eternally.

     I am a foster parent who relies on websites to get the word out about my foster dogs for their furever families. Reggie was placed on Rescue Me and this is where his new furever family found him! Their daughter was searching for a new member of the family and she fell in love with Reggie just from his picture. Reggie was officially adopted by this wonderful, amazing family. They love Reggie and were so excited to take him home. I cannot thank Rescue Me enough for existing. I have placed two more foster dogs on this site as I completely trust and love this website. Reggie is missed very much, but knowing that he found his perfect, loving and incredible forever family is what it is all about. I will use Rescue Me with every foster dog I have in the future.

     We just adopted AJ through Rescue Me and what a wonderful result! A perfect replacement for our lab/husky, Hannah, who passed two years ago. We realize that you can't ever actually replace a dog, but AJ certainly has both the looks and personality of our former dog and will certainly fill a void in our lives for the past two years. Thanks, Rescue Me, for the gift.

     I received many inquiries about Baby through Rescue Me. I can not thank everyone enough! I'm happy to tell everyone that Baby has found her new home. She was adopted by a loving couple who have made it their mission to foster and/or adopt only older larger dogs. She is fitting in very well at her new home, where she was quickly welcomed into the pack. Thanks to all who responded! This site is so easy to navigate, it's easy to post, as well as to search. Keep up the good work Rescue Me! Thanks for being there! As an extra little note to everyone, we've also been able to make some new connections and we now have a new way to show our appreciation. We were contacted by many who were involved with local rescues, and we will now be volunteering to trap and socialize feral cats and kittens. We are so happy to be able to have made so many new friends!

     Thank you Rescue Me for making it possible for me to adopt my new puppy. If it weren't for your site I would have never known about Prince. After having to send my 16 year old dog to the Rainbow Bridge, I felt it was time to add a new addition to my family. Rescue Me made it easy to do just that by posting Prince. Prince is adjusting to his new home and is a happy, healthy 11 week old puppy.

     I ended up keeping Bella. I fostered three pups and Bella helped with the fostering. One of the pups, the runt, ended up being unadoptable due to a heart murmur and more. I raised the money to get her heart checked and she should live a normal life. Bella and the pup, Mia, bonded so well, I just couldn't separate them. So, I now have two young, energetic dogs. But hey, it keeps me healthy too! Thank you, Rescue Me, for this site.

     I fell in love with Emmy Lou when I saw her picture on your website. When I showed her to my husband, he said 'call right away what are you waiting for?' We were the first to call, got our application in immediately and were approved. The foster family was amazing. It was unclear if the puppy possibly had Giardia. The foster mom kept the puppy for a week to treat her and then got a stool sample to assure she was clear. The foster mom, sent me pictures everyday and updated me throughout the day on Emmy Lou's antics and progress. It was hard to wait to pick her up, but when we got her it was worth every minute. We lost our 15 year old boxer/lab mix and were missing having a dog in our lives. Emmy Lou has filled our hearts again and we could not be happier. Did I mention the one o'clock am needing to go out!!! LOL. It's like having a baby again. What could be better? Thank you to all the volunteers for everything you do for dogs. I think Rescue Me is amazing.

     Tippy was adopted by a lovely young woman who drove four hours one way to meet Tippy and give her a loving home. Aly has a three year old puppy who will now have a big sister. Tippy welcomed Aly very warmly right away and did well in the drive to her new home. Aly has called me to tell me how she did in the car and how she is doing in her new home. I have also been welcomed to call anytime to learn how she is doing and will get photos too. Rescue Me gave me hope for Tippy and to know my puppy will be happy in her new home. She was my family and helped me through difficult times in my life and now I can move into my new home knowing she is well taken care of and loved. I will be forever grateful of your website and services.

     We have had our three year old lab Annie since she was a puppy. As time went on, family members started showing allergies as well as having asthma problems. We tried to make it work but those who were affected were pulling away and the burden of caring for her became the task for Mom, who also suffered from allergies and asthma. It became too much and we wanted Annie to be happy. So after much searching and debating, we decided to re-home her. We were uncomfortable posting her in our local paper and Craigslist. Upon searching, we came across Rescue Me. Although we didn't feel Annie needed to be rescued per say, we felt this site would only get traffic of those who were animal lovers and were serious about being a forever family. We love Annie and it has been extremely difficult to make this decision. Through lots of tears, we picked a family who answered all of our many questions and agreed to become friends through a social media page so we can see how Annie is doing as well as possibly stopping by when we are in the area so we can say 'hi'. We are so grateful for Rescue Me and giving us a safe and secure way to find a perfect home for our sweet Annie. Thank you!

     This was my first time using this site as well as raising puppies from birth. I have nothing but great things to say about both experiences. My boyfriend and I had to unexpectedly go out of town when my father had a heart attack. We left our three adult dogs at a rescue farm where my dog has stayed previously. One of our dogs ran off with the neighbor's dog, who was not neutered, and, shortly after, we had seven puppies. It was not planned or intended, but we knew that we had to do whatever possible to find responsible pet owners and great homes for each puppy. We planned on posting in area vet offices and networking with local rescues. None of this has been necessary since posting on Rescue Me was our first step. It turned out to be the only step we needed to take. The communication we received was phenomenal and we were able to find amazing homes for all the puppies. We have received updates and pictures of each of the seven puppies. The new pup-parents, we found from Rescue Me were outstanding and the homes we settled on never caused us doubt. We considered finding this site a blessing because we were able to help our puppies find their forever homes!

     Stripe went to her new home today. I have to admit her adoption was a hard one for me. I foster in my home and am a coordinator for Wet Kisses and Wagging Tails. I have had her in my home for a while, with her mom and sisters and brother. I have grown very attached to all my fosters and letting one go often has me in tears. I know she is going to a great new family and that is what comforts me. I grew very attached to her. Her personality always brightened my day. Her new family drove for over three hours to pick her up and they were very excited to get to meet her and hold her. Thank you, for all you do to help find homes for those in need. Your site is a great help to our rescue. Our rescue is a small, and, without your site, we would not be able to do what we do. Thank you, Rescue Me!

     Trevor is a special guy. He is partly blind and was trained through our prison program, Wet Kisses and Wagging Tails Rescue. We are a small group that foster in our homes and through our prison program, which has enabled us to help our local shelter keep their no kill for near a year now. We are able to save more lives with the prison program and using Rescue Me. Trevor was pulled straight from the shelter and went to the prison program to get one on one training and lots of love and attention. He got adopted by a mother and daughter that will keep training him to go into retirement homes and schools to teach others to love and respect dogs. He is one blessed dog that will be sharing his love with so many with the help of his new family. Thank you for your help, Rescue Me. You made it possible for them to find us. We would have never found this family, and they would have never found us!! Love your site and all the help you have given us!! Thank you!!
