     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.

     Thank you, Rescue Me! Rocko was rescued by a couple of concerned ladies, out of deplorable conditions. 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.

     Poncho was a dumped puppy along with his two other brothers, Lefty & Townes! The three were very untrusting and scared when we found them. We brought them to the ranch to give them the time they needed to become confident, loving, playful pups and help them find their forever families. It worked! We are so happy that Poncho found his family! A wonderful couple who fell in love with him from day one and adopted him. Now, he is a spoiled lap dog..as it should be! We Love Poncho! You have an amazing life ahead of you, my friend. Thanks, Rescue Me!

     We are so happy to report our sweet boy, Topher, was adopted! He went to a lovely young couple who understands his needs and will work with him to continue his training and love. They only live an hour away and they said we can visit him any time we want to. It could not have gone better. We are so thankful for Rescue Me. (We contacted several rescue organizations and none of them could take him either due to full capacity or his history not being compatible with their services). This website literally saved his life. We are elated!

     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.

     We could not keep our dear Hamilton, but within hours of posting his picture and profile on Rescue Me, we were in contact with his forever home. We took him for a visit and they loved him. He was the dog they had been searching for four weeks. He is now with them and we are so thankful we could re-home him and not surrender him to a shelter or pound. Thank you for a quick and easy site to connect animal lovers. Thank you from the people who can't keep their pets to the ones searching for their next family pet. Love you forever, Hammy.

     Jax has been looking for a new home for about two months since my medical conditions are needing some expensive tests costing about $1500. 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!

     What an incredible love story! Sadie was adopted by a couple who lost their beloved 17 year old Lab/Plott Hound mix. 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!

     Thank you, Rescue Me! Zebo was my stepson's dog. My stepson has been struggling with drugs. He left his dog with us, but soon realized that he had a long rehab in front of him. He knew that it would be better for Zebo to go to a more stable home. He trusted me to handle it since I do dog rescue. I feel he made a mature decision and in the best interest of his dog. Prayers for my stepson as he goes through this process.

     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.

     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!

     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.

     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

     I used Rescue Me to find our precious new family member, Bronx. He immediately stole my heart and continues to just give out more love by the day. My husband and I are beyond grateful for this site and how helpful it was in aiding our search for our boy. He spends his days lounging with me, playing tug-o-war, and trying to make friends with our cats. Thank you, Rescue Me for leading us to this amazing pup. I hope everyone else has just as much success using this site as we did!

     My experience with Rescue Me was awesome. We had some unforeseen circumstances that would not allow us to provide the home that Molly deserves. The ease of use and response was great! We successfully found Molly a new home in less than a week. Thank you!

     I rescued Molly, a lab/boxer mix through Rescue Me, and she is a love. From day one, she made herself right at home, she is very gentle and loving and likes to follow my three cats around the house. I believe she knows how fortunate she is that I found her. She has lots of adults and children that love and play with her in her life now. I strongly believe in adopting a rescue pet, so good luck to all future adopters.

     We were heartbroken to have to re-home our beloved dog, Bella. We wanted to make sure we found the perfect home for her, and I was amazed at how many genuine inquiries we received through Rescue Me. We ultimately placed her in a home that has experience training labs, loves to take dogs camping and other active adventures--exactly what this pup deserves.

     Thanks to Rescue Me, this sweet pup Noble found a forever home locally! I couldn't be more pleased with the family that chose to adopt and welcome him into their lives and home. I have used this site previously, and there is a reason I came back again to use it. I have also found my own loving pet through this organization, and I have nothing but gratitude for the people running it, and keeping it up and running. What an awesome resource to find/adopt an animal a home! Noble is safe, and loved, and thankful for Rescue Me!

     It was exceptionally helpful to see many available puppies of one breed on one site rather than having to look all over. We are very happy with our new little girl. Well, little for the moment but soon to be a big girl! Thank you, Rescue Me!

     Joansey was left abandoned in the yard with her brother and another pet when her owner was arrested. The neighbors shot at Joansey, her brother and the other pet. Her brother, Jones, died from the wounds a week later. The other pet, Takeo, had to have surgery due to his wounds and lived. He was adopted as well. Joansey, who hid under the house, escaped without injury. However, she was traumatized and very timid because of her experiences. Because of the help of Rescue Me and others, she got her fur ever home. This is what Rescue Me does for these pets, gives them a chance at a decent live. I am endlessly grateful for their help.

     By kismet alone, we happened to be at a high kill shelter when this dog was being surrendered. We talked with the family and asked if we could take him into our rescue and asked that they keep him until we could find a foster. They gave us one week. Within that week, we posted on adoption sites, including Rescue Me. This is where his new family saw him. They emailed us, filled out an application, and allowed us to do a home check before even meeting the dog. We did a final meet and greet a week after we first met the dog, less than 24 hours after we physically removed him from his home and brought him into a rescue. It was instant attraction on both sides. He is now home, nine days after he was to be surrendered to the shelter, with a family that will love and cherish him until his time comes to walk across that Rainbow Bridge. Thank you, Rescue Me!

     We found our dog, Hershey, an excellent home. He is with a very nice family. Also, he has a new friend, Guner. They will be partners in crime. I am very happy with Rescue Me. This site is the best! Thank you so much. Without your help, we will not be able to find our lovely dog a new home. Thank you again!

     I am so thankful to Rescue Me for helping me to find Hank. He is such an incredibly sweet dog! He's only been here for a day, but he's already settling in just fine. I am deeply grateful to Kristin and her family for allowing me to adopt Hank. They were so gracious and generous with their time and made sure Hank had everything he needed when he headed off to his new home. Thanks so much!

     My boyfriend and I adopted Eleanor together and we couldn't be happier. Eleanor's foster mom was fantastic and helped Eleanor become the healthy, playful pup that we have fallen in love with. The transition was easy and we are so happy to have a new dog in our life. I truly appreciate Rescue Me for making this possible.

     AMAZING UPDATE! With the help of some awesome animal rescue warriors, Diamond, Daisy and Soda were adopted yesterday! Thanks to everyone who helped by sharing the story, networking with animal lovers, and those who donated food and other items for the dogs! I know their owner would have approved of this extraordinary gentleman and his family. They even invited us to come visit the dogs whenever we can! I'm so grateful all three got to stay together and that their new owner is so excited to get to know them! Thank you Rescue Me and everyone from the bottom of our hearts!

     Daisy was seen by the director of a senior living facility. They had searched Rescue Me many times and were looking for an older gal to become part of their community. They contacted us and, after a few meet and greets, Daisy will be calling their home her home. If it had not been for Rescue Me, they would have never seen Daisy.. Thank you! The seniors are harder to find homes for, but Daisy is going to have more attention than we ever could have hoped for.

     Sara and her brother, Rusty, were adopted out as puppies to someone who wanted them to become police dogs. They did not respond to his attempt at training them and were subsequently returned to the shelter. When they came in, we noticed how unsocialized they were and we shudder to think of the neglect they endured at the hands of their former adopter. Fast forward four years and three months, a wonderful woman came forward to meet them and it was love at first sight. She wanted both of them! They have their own yard and a forever home together. We could not be happier and wish them a happy life out of the shelter! Thank you, Rescue Me!

     Buddy found a wonderful home with people who see the beauty in giving second chances. I am grateful for the Rescue Me site and the wonderful people on it. I am still searching for a good home for his brother Buck, who is still with us. I know that there's a family out there who could love him and give him the attention he deserves and needs as well. Thank you for offering this avenue for people like me who prefer a better way to rehome a pet besides the pound.

     I am happy to report that Shamus has found his forever home by being posted on Rescue Me. I am very thankful that he did not end up in a shelter. The people who adopted him told me that he is adjusting beautifully and that they adore him. I am so happy for Shamus. He is such a good dog and deserves a loving home. They told me they will gladly keep me updated on how he is doing. Thank you, Rescue Me, for helping Shamus and so many other dogs find the home they deserve.

     We are very excited and are waiting for our new lab to arrive next week. As soon as I saw the Rescue Me post regarding this lab, I knew he was the pup for us. So sweet and playful. He reminds us a lot of the beautiful black lab we had to put to sleep who we still really miss. I have been communicating with the person handling the adoption, etc. She is amazing. I know how busy she is and she still takes the time to answer my questions. My family and I are very impressed with the loving care and devotion in the way they seek out good homes for these dogs. Bravo!

     A girl I know adopted Lucky from animal control for all the wrong reasons. When she decided she didn't want the dog anymore, I took him in and told her I would find a good home for him. Within a couple of hours of posting Lucky, I got two responses. The first one I emailed was exactly what I was looking for! We are going to a meet and greet on Sunday. If everything works out, Lucky will have a one-year-old lab mix brother, a six-year-old human sister, a huge fenced in yard yard to run and play in, and a pool to swim in. I thought it would take a long time to find a home for him, but I couldn't be more thrilled with the results!!! Thank you, Rescue Me for all you do!!!

     Thank God for this website! I'm a brand new mom and felt like I couldn't take good enough care of my beloved 100 plus pound lab anymore with my new baby. I didn't want to give him to just ANYONE (i.e. a shelter, a foster home, etc.) so I tried friends and family first without any luck. Someone suggested Rescue Me and we found Harley the best home ever - where he can run off-leash every day and play with other dogs and get way more love an attention than he would have with me now. And it really all happened so fast, which is good for him so he can enjoy this springlike weather. Thank you, Rescue Me!

     This truly was a wonderful way to find Dixie a new home. Her new Daddy contacted me a couple of days after I posted her photo on Rescue Me. We finally met yesterday. He and his wife and their other rescued lab made the four hour journey to meet us. A wonderful couple that I feel very comfortable leaving Dixie with. I highly recommend this site to help find your pet a new home.

     We adopted a sweet Lab/Bloodhound mix that we found through Rescue Me. I have had full blooded Labs and Golden Retrievers in the past. I was looking at Bloodhounds when I came across a black Lab/Bloodhound mix. We have had him for about 10 days, and he is a gentle sweet dog. To the untrained eye he looks like a solid black Lab, but with larger ears. He is about three years old. What is really neat is that he howls at sirens. My neighbors think I have a howling black Lab...What a neat combination!
