     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 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 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!!

     My girl, Roxky, found a new home. Actually, she found her old home. I posted her on Rescue Me and then contacted a local group, MARC, for help as well. Do you believe in coincidence? Her original owners saw her posting and contacting me for info on how long I had her, etc., believing she might be their dog who got out of the fence when they moved a couple of years ago. After an exchange of photos, it turned out that they WERE her original family. They live only two blocks from me. They have been looking for her all this time. They came to visit that afternoon and she remembered them. We made plans for the family to be able to tell her goodbye and then I would deliver her to them that evening. The reunion was bittersweet, because, as much as she loved us, she was impatient when they left, and when we took her to their home, she went in and never looked back. Our hearts will forever miss her. She was such a good dog. But if the case were reversed, I would want the same outcome. It was meant to be this way.

     After finding a beautiful lost/abandoned male Lab-mix, I placed a found poster in the area but to no avail. I then followed the easy on-line process of posting this beauty I called 'Gizmo' on Rescue Me. Within four days, a wonderful family from about 200 miles away called very excited. We simply met in the middle and they fell in love with Gizmo. He, in turn, showed a lot of immediate love for them. It's always very heartwarming to see an animal in a safe and happy environment. And thanks to Rescue Me, that's exactly what happened. May God bless you.

They were found together on the highway and had been neglected and abused. We've had them less than a week, but they are thriving!

     Thank you, Rescue Me, for helping me find Bosco a forever home and a loving family. I had rescued Bosco from an animal control shelter and planned on giving him a forever home. Over time, I realized that Bosco needed something I couldn't give him, and that was the attention and companionship he needed. I have 12 other dogs (all rescues), and therefore I decided it was in Bosco's best interest to find a home that could provide the love and attention a Lab so deserves. Through Rescue Me, a family contacted me. They have two kids, a big fenced in back yard, and a lake next door. I went for a home visit yesterday with Bosco and saw not only the kids' eyes light up, but Boscos as well. They threw the ball for him, and he was so happy. I am friends with them on Facebook now, and they have been posting pictures of Bosco looking so loved and happy. Last night, he slept in the bed with the children and truly seems at home now. I think that somewhere in his past he came from a home with kids. While my heart aches and I miss him so much, I find great comfort and happiness knowing that he will be in a loving and caring forever home. I saved him from a kill shelter, gave him the best home I could, and in the end he ended up in a forever home with two wonderful children and loving parents. I would call that a success story, and Rescue Me made it all possible. Thanks again.

     Our seven month old Chocolate Lab Arwen found a wonderful home through the Rescue Me website today. (I just placed the post yesterday!) She's a beautiful purebred Lab with a great personality, but we finally realized we could not provide the vigorous exercise and training she needed, so we decided to find her a home. Sunday I posted her on Rescue Me, and almost immediately began getting inquiries by phone and by email. Lots! The winner was a very fine person who has two older labs, lots of fenced yard, miles of trails and fields along a river where she walks them off leash every day...in short the ideal home for Arwen. Using Rescue Me has been a very pleasant and positive experience for us, and I'll be highly recommending it to others.

     My husband and I have been looking for a dog to adopt since we lost our lab, Junior. I started looking at the Rescue Me site to spot the dog right for us, and last week, there he was!! A male lab just a few miles away who needed a new home. After exchanging several emails it was finally time to meet Odin and his owner. What a wonderful dog!! Stephen, his owner, just didn't have the time Odin needed. How awesome it was to find a dog owner that was willing to put his dog's needs first. After just a few minutes of our 'meet and greet' we knew Odin would fit right into our home. We could also tell how hard it was for Stephen to be giving up his friend. We hope we made his decision just a little easier by letting him know how much we wanted Odin in our home. Rescue Me is a wonderful site, allowing owners who need to rehome their pets, to giving access to rescue and shelter sites. We looked at a lot of sites. Rescue Me was factual, easy to use and allowed us to communicate directly with the dog's owner. It's a good day!! We have a Lab in the house!!

     Thank you Rescue Me for helping us find a great home for Madison. It took just seven hours to first hear from her new family! Though trusting Madison would receive the greatest care, we did as was suggested by Rescue Me to get information from her new family about their previous pets and their veterinary contact. When contacting the vet, they highly recommended her new family! What a relief! We could move forward with the greatest peace of mind. After meeting Madison's new family in person, all our prayers were answered! They are the perfect match and we know she will continue to be loved as much as we have loved her. Thank you to her new family!

     I live out on a rural highway in Oregon. One day, my neighbor and I were talking and this guy rides by on a bicycle with Bear following him. Well Bear stopped off in the neighbor's yard to visit with other dogs, then came to my yard and visited with my dog. In the meantime the bicycle kept going down the road. I yelled to him that he forgot his dog, and he looked back and kept on riding. We took Bear down the road to this house where we thought he might belong. The people there said he followed a bicycle from another town. We called the pound in both counties and listed him, and I put him on Rescue Me! In the meantime, between my neighbor and myself he was cared for both night and day. He spent the nights in my neighbor's house, and spent the days in my yard. He was such a gentle, beautiful and special dog. We could not risk putting him in the pound. Bear was adopted after about a month with us. He went to a loving home on the coast. In my opinion Bear couldn't have found a better home. Thank you for letting me share my story.

Though they are older they are very energetic and want to be in the middle of everything. We can no longer keep them in fear that they may knock my husband down. Rescue Me! helped me find new families and homes for them within 24 hours of posting them. Thank you so very much.

     We adopted Odie from a very nice family last Sunday that were getting ready to move as their family is growing and needs more room. Unfortunately, Odie could not be part of the move and was in need of a good home. We lost our 10 yr old Lab back on Jan 3 to cancer and there had been a void in our lives from that time. While one can never replace a pet, there's always a place for a new one in the family. Odie is adapting well to his new surroundings and is without a doubt a welcome addition to our family.

     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 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 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!

After, she was taken to a kennel where she spent a year of her life on a concrete slab until I shared her story on Rescue Me! Then a couple five hours away drove all the way just to adopt Lucky.

     Within a day of posting Eva on Rescue Me!, the perfect match was made. Prior to finding this site I had Eva posted on fliers at local vets and several pages on Facebook. It generated some inquiries, but no serious candidates. I feel that people that go to Rescue Me! are seriously searching for a specific dog to adopt. I have forwarded this site to our little small town rescue shelter, and will be using this site myself in the future, as I live in an area with a high dog dumping rate. I am excited to have found Rescue Me!

     I have been getting 'rescue alerts' from Rescue Me! for quiet some time now, and thankfully so! I had inquired about several labs from the Rescue Me! site as they were posted, and I found exactly what we have been searching for! Our family has a 10-year old Lab who lives with my daughter, and we love him. I always said if I could find another Sullivan I would take one in, and yesterday I saw a post about Harley. Today after meeting him, and taking a chance, he is home with us and awesome! He is a younger version of Sullivan, and just who we have waited for! Dealing with Rescue Me! seemed much safer than Craigslist, and I am glad we waited, and so glad we found Harley. He spent his day at Petco and with my 3-year old granddaughter getting to know all three acres! He is a joy, so those of you looking and waiting, TAKE a CHANCE and bring home a pet. Harley is my Birthday gift for myself!

By the second day we had three interested parties, and we think we have found the perfect home for AJ, where he will get the love and the care that he needs.

     I had posted my Lab, Pebbles, on Rescue Me! and she was adopted by Kelli and Rich. I knew when I first talked to Kelli that she would be the one, I could hear in her voice the compassion and love she has for dogs. It was not an easy decision to put Pebbles up for adoption due to our medical issues, but it was unfair not to give Pebbles the best life she could have as a Lab. When we meet them we knew instantly they were the ones to ensure Pebbles has that life. I have already had a update on Pebbles, and now can rest knowing that Pebbles is 'Home'! Thank you, Rescue Me!, and big thanks to Kelli and Rich!
