     Moose had been waiting months for someone to come along and save her, but we kept hearing no... She's too old, or no... She's too heavy. Then I posted her on Rescue Me! Within two days of posting her, an angel came along and adopted not only her, but her 13 year old mother!! What a blessing this site is!!! Thank you so very much!!!

     I was actually looking for a lab for a friend and came across this brown eyed beauty. His story just touched my heart. This is actually my second adoption through Rescue Me. He is a fantastic addition to our family. It has been one week and he has already totally made himself at home. There are so many fantastic animals on this website that deserve a forever home. Before buying a pet, please consider adopting.

     Through Rescue Me, I have adopted out heartworm positive dogs, old dogs, special needs dogs, dogs that were literally moments from euthanasia, and of course purebred and healthy dogs. The quality of the adopter is outstanding, the response sometimes overwhelming. Some very recent dogs I thought would never find a home: a heartworm positive 12 year old lab adopted by a lovely couple, a 13 year old deaf Jack Russell adopted by JR-loving couple (I also got a call from Hawaii for him from a couple willing to fly him out!) but so many more... I would not advise posting Pitts unless you can personally visit the people. Otherwise every breed I've posted gets a fantastic response. I use a detailed screening questionnaire (ask me about that), vet check, references and trust my instinct when talking with a potential adopter. I average three to four adoptions to good homes a week through Rescue Me and always get follow-up pictures of happiness-- and literally transformed dogs, and notes from grateful adopters. These are the most rewarding moments that keep our dogs moving on to the next dog. Thank you Jeff for this incredible service.

     Thank you, Rescue Me! We have always adopted labs. We lost our last one in February and saw his picture and knew he was the perfect pup for us. He is so smart and sweet. He is learning really quickly how to go out to potty. He stays indoors most of the time with us. The Humane Society was very gracious and very helpful in our adoption process. They really care about their animals. His new name is Bodie Chance (after his brothers that are no longer here; Bo, Buddy and Chance). We love him already!

     We had a very sweet stray show up, that we just could not keep. Rescue Me was a great way to link her up with a family looking for just the sort of dog she was.......sweet. It took a week and a half, and we got a call about her, but that one call was her new family. It was a great match. We did not have to take her to the dog pound, and the family that adopted her got a great, loyal, sweet pet. Happy Ending!! I put a lot of detail about her in the posting, and was very honest that she was not good with other pets, and had been dumped and neglected and was skinny and needed some TLC. I think that information kept the call volume down a bit, so we started to get discouraged she may not find a home. However, when we did get a call, the family knew exactly what to expect and they were the perfect match for her. They had no other pets, and were ready and willing with the TLC she needed. She looked pretty happy driving away with her new family!

     My experience with Rescue Me has been very nice. Everyone that I talked to regarding my lab mix puppy, Halo, have been very kind and have answered my abundance of questions very kindly and as quickly as they could. We are in the final stages of adopting her, but overall we have been told that she is all ours and after the home visit she will be brought home to meet her big sister and fellow rescue dog, Sky! We can tell she is EXTREMELY excited to meet her baby sister because she licks our phone screens every time we show her Halo's pictures. We know for a fact that our home is puppy safe considering our other dog is only a year old. We know that she will be happy with us and will thrive in our home and with our family.

     Bear met the family of his dreams. As a rescuer, I knew this was the family that he was meant to spend his life with! I was contacted via Rescue Me on Wednesday night. The family drove an hour and a half to meet him spending the same amount of time with Bear and walking away completely in love. We were able to complete all reference checks and finalize the adoption on Sunday. The amazing part of the story is that Bear was being tossed away by his previous family. He had been used as nothing more than a way to make money, breed over and over and over again. He sought human affection, laying in the sunshine and long walks with his foster dad. He will be loved everyday for the rest of his life by the little nine year old boy with autism who walked out of the house and quietly said 'my dog'. Not a question, nor an exclamation, but rather a statement as if he had been waiting for Bear as long as Bear has been waiting for him.

     Rescue Me has been a blessing for our rescue. Our Lab, Comet, was adopted by a wonderful lady. She drove four hours to get Comet. When they met tears were shed. It was like Comet knew she was the one for him. Needless to say, they picked each other. Rescue Me has helped place many of our dogs with wonderful, loving and caring homes. Thank You for helping Comet meet his Angel and forever family.

     I had been looking at dogs on many websites and had traveled to a local shelter but never went inside. I was still grieving the loss of my two wonderful labs. I saw on Rescue Me that several black lab puppies would be traveling to my local Pet Smart for an adoption event. So I decided to just go and see how I felt with these pups. Well, I never made it to the black lab puppies as my husband saw some chocolate fur through a kennel door. When he opened it, a five month old chocolate lab/Doberman little girl leapt into his arms and looked up at me as if to say, 'Where've you been? What took you so long?' After spending the next three hours with her while waiting for our turn (more volunteers needed and I am going to see what I can do to help) we knew she was ours. Koko is doing very well and has helped me to continue the grieving process of my other sweet dogs (I was stuck in an unhealthy stage). Already love this beautiful girl!

     After just a few weeks, I received an email from a very nice couple who was looking for a larger dog, older and house trained. Zoe fits the description of what this couple was looking for. After corresponding a few times, a meeting was scheduled for Zoe to meet her new potential family. My husband and I met at what soon became her new home. The couple instantly connected with Zoe and she stayed with them. Two days later, I received an email letting me know that Zoe was doing very well in her new home and that the nice couple couldn't be happier. My husband and I were thrilled! We even received an invite to visit Zoe a week later. Rescue Me was the best way for our family to find Zoe a new home. We would highly recommend this site to anyone looking for a new home for their pet.

     Rescue Me was extremely helpful in finding a new home for my six year old lab, Ellie. I had Ellie since she was a tiny puppy, but finally had to admit that I just did not have enough time or space available to give her the life she deserved. Through Rescue Me, I was able to quickly and easily find her a new forever home with someone who I can tell will take great care of her, and now she will get the attention and space to run that she really deserves. I will also definitely be keeping Rescue Me in mind in the future when I am someday in a better position to adopt another dog! This is truly an excellent service, and much needed in the world of pet owners!

     I am ever so grateful for Rescue Me! I took in Midnight after he was hit by a car and the only concern his previous owner had was the vet bill. I offered to pay and when I met her at the vet she decided to let the shelter take him. Oh no you don't! I took him home with me instead. I already had two dogs and one of them did nothing but pick on poor Midnight. After seven months of trying everything I possibly could to work things out I knew I had to look for a new home for Midnight. As much as it was breaking my heart, it truly wasn't fair to him to constantly get picked on. I had him posted on numerous websites and Rescue Me was the only one that I received any response from. Midnight went to live with his new Mommy and Daddy today and he almost instantly gave his new Mommy a hug and kisses! I know he will be loved!

     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!

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!

     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!

     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!

     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 am thankful to have had Rescue Me as a resource in finding a new home/family for my puppy. Letting Renly go was a hard decision for our family, but the right decision for our puppy. We received many interested families through this site, and in less than 24 hours, Renly had new humans to love him. Thank you for helping me place Renly with a loving family.

     I had been looking for a large lab after I had to put my 15 year old chocolate down. I found Ruger. Although he is 11 years old, and about 95 lbs, he thinks he is a puppy and tries to crawl into my lap. He is such a love, a true lab, beggar and food thief, and even tries to share my morning coffee.... A match made in heaven! Thank you, Rescue Me.

     I posted a picture and description of Maggie (Yellow Lab). Within a few days I received a message for information on Maggie. Maggie has a new home with a little boy to play with her and a wonderful family. Though I was sad to see her go, I am happy that I was able to find her a wonderful home with a wonderful family! I had originally posted on craigslist after Facebook did not help, and someone (bless this person) emailed me and said to try Rescue Me! After checking out the site, I posted a Maggie's picture and had many requests for more info on sweet Maggie! I have recommended this site to several people trying to find homes for a few furkids and hope they have the same success that I did! Thank you!

     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.

     Rescue Me has helped me adopt many of my rescue dogs. It is so amazing the great people I have met who have given my dogs such a wonderful home. I am very blessed to have come across your site. I am looking forward to getting my other dogs adopted. I do cat and dog rescue and when one gets adopted it gives me room to save another one's life.

     We posted Diesel for adoption. That same evening, I received a call about the posting and spoke with the interested guy for about an hour. Over the next several days, we continued to discuss Diesel and his fit with their family. I am happy to say that it is a perfect fit, and Diesel moved in with his new family this morning. An update from his new family indicates that the transition is going well, and all are happy, healthy, and loved! We could not have made this match without Rescue Me. Thank you for all you do!

     Lois was in desperate need to be adopted. She was marked to be euthanized any day. I put her up on the site the same day I did Sophie, a boxer, and Lois was adopted today. I'm thrilled her life was saved and Rescue Me was a super easy to use and it saves lives. Thanks again, Rescue Me!

     BEST NEWS EVER: 'Rescue Me!' found my six-year old yellow lab the BEST home ever!! I was absolutely distraught being forced to rehome our family's beloved dog! 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 rescued Eevee from a displaced young guy who could no longer house her. Last night she got adopted by an adult father and son who had found her through 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.

     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.
