     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!

     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!

     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!

Thank you for offering this avenue for people like me who prefer a better way to rehome a pet besides the pound.

     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!

     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!

     Thank you, Rescue Me. Through our post, Mama found an amazing home in Canada. The adopter had been a follower of Xtreme Rescue since Xtreme opened its doors. Wendy retired and thought getting another dog. So the process began. Application, home check, and now the transport. Three days only to fill 20 drivers and two overnight drives from the rescue to Canada. Mama had been a shelter dog in a kennel and loves having free run of her home and running in the snow in the backyard. She is so excited she couldn't sleep for two nights just running back and forth from her bed to the door.

     Thank you, Rescue Me. I just wanted to write a few lines to let you know how Cy is doing nowadays. Cy has quickly become the little baby in this house. We love him so much! Dylan loves his new best friend, and Jesse and I love to spoil him every time we can. Cy loves to run in the backyard and today for the first time ran around the snow. We take long walks with him. He really enjoys watching as Dylan trains during TKD, and is popular as an awesome, loving dog around the other students in his class. He is still not fond of his bath time. I try to bathe him with a nice oatmeal and tree oil bath for his skin and prevent dry skin. He enjoys his big crate, although he would rather spend time walking around the house. He also loves car rides. He comes with me wherever I go. I am adding some pictures to keep you updated... Wink. Thank you so much for allowing us to adopt our boy. We love Cy so, so much and couldn't have found a better dog. We are very lucky doggy parents!

     I wished to find a home for the sweet lab/pit mix who wandered into my yard a few months ago. She was so sweet I couldn't believe her family wasn't looking for her so I kept putting off the inevitable of calling the pound. I got a call last week from a young lady who saw 'Baby Girl' on Rescue Me, and wanted her so badly that I took her out there later that day. They are bonding and her new mom has graciously kept me updated with pics of how she's doing. We got the miracle we were hoping for!

     Liam is my foster. He is an always happy, wiggle-bottom boy, whose tail never stops unless asleep. Liam has been adopted by a wonderful family. He will have a wonderful life with children, a warm wood stove to snuggle close to on cold northern winter nights, a cat as a new fur sibling, horses, land to run on and be loved forever as he should be. Liam was saved from the EBI (Euthination By Injection) list by Lucky Lab Rescue. Given this second chance, he will now have a wonderful family to love him forever.

     We have been so blessed by discovering Rescue Me. Our family was finally ready to add new lab in our home after losing our precious girl Loa, a few years back. Loa was a drop off at our place of business and we fell in love with her immediately. After she passed away, we took some time to heal our hearts. When we were ready to begin looking, we thought of a puppy, but once we found this site and saw all the adorable 'older' labs available, we knew, just like our Loa, this would be the perfect fit for our family. Much to our surprise, I found these two beauties, Lucky and Kayla, and began to correspond with their owners. We had not planned on two, but I knew right away these were the two for us. Our family prayed about this, prayed about the owner's choice to select our family, and it was a perfect match. I know how hard this has been in the family making this decision, as these are two wonderful dogs. We have been blessed to get to know this family better and I truly believe this was a God-thing. Lucky and Kayla were re-homed today and are settling in nicely and receiving lots of love and attention. We are telling everyone about this wonderful organization and how blessed they will be by giving a rescue dog a forever family. I am so glad I found this organization and will continue to support and recommend it to all.

     We were very interested in fostering/adopting a senior dog. We emailed the rescues when seeing senior Labrador-female on Rescue Me. One rescue was located about an hour's drive from where we live, and the dog came to our home for about two weeks. She was not a good 'fit' for us, so she was returned to its' former foster owner. The search began again, for a senior female Labrador. If one was 'found', I'd email the rescue of our interest for the dog. Surprise! Two rescues, in the same week, notified us. The senior dog(s) would be arriving soon! It was a really TOUGH decision, but Carolina was the dog we would foster/adopt. After a long car ride by a rescue volunteer, Carolina came to my home, tail wagging, and a pink/brown fleece blanket. I told them I want to have more than five days to foster or adopt. We only needed three days to adopt. It was meant to be.. The long search. Although we know nothing of her background, she is full of love and devotion. Carolina has a forever home, and we have an awesome dog. She loves car rides and retrieving. She loves people. She's so awesome in every way. It's like we all have been a family for years, not just a few weeks! So thankful that Carolina is with us, and the long search is over. Carolina was meant to be ours!

     I picked up Buddy yesterday. She posted that Buddy needed a forever home on Rescue Me, and I have one for him. He loves his big, fenced in yard. He has a beautiful black coat and boy is he friendly. Buddy is not the only winner here. After my black Lab, Kaos, succumbed to cancer three years ago, I swore I would never get another pet. One look at Buddy, and that thought went out the window. I have my companion now and, hopefully, so does he. You have a great rescue site. Keep up the good work!

     Rescue Me certainly helped me and a particular fur baby. I found Piper tied up underneath an old trailer with no food or water. It was obvious he had been there for a while. He had minimal social skills and wasn't in great health. After a few months with me he was good as new. When I first posted him on Rescue Me, I thought I wouldn't have any luck. Too many people buy from breeders these days. My head was low, but my hopes were high. Sure enough, I received a message from a potential adopter through Rescue Me! It's now been several weeks since Piper was adopted and he is thriving in his new home on five acres with three other brothers. His life drastically changed. He is the poster pup for a real genuine rescue and he deserves it all. Thank you Jeff Gold and Rescue Me for putting the time into such a fantastic site.

     A thousand thank you's to Jeff, who had the initiative to start this web site. I am thrilled that Tucker has found a new home in the country. He will have 10 acres of open space. The best part is for the very first time he will have his own six year old boy to be a loyal companion to. Although my heart breaks to have to give this dog up, I feel 100% relieved that he is going to a good home where he will get lots of love and attention. Thank you, Rescue Me.

     I posted my Lab, Lily, on Rescue Me and I received a response the next day. I was sad to have to post her, but I knew she needed more than I could give her right now. The family who adopted her is awesome! They know what to expect from a Lab and they have another dog so Lily has a brother now! Lily has come a long way from being a skinny stray. Thanks Rescue Me for helping my girl find a new loving home. I will consider your site if I'am looking to adopt in the future.

     My first rescue from Rescue Me, Layla, a yellow lab, and I went to Beatrice to meet Jake from PawsUp rescue. Kathy and Mary were awesome, Jake was described perfectly and the next week, they brought him for the tow week trial. Layla was a little unsure about sharing Mom and her space, but quickly warmed up. Jake now has the run of the house and the big farm we live on and he is happy all of the time! We are so happy to have found him. (I had wanted another black lab.) It was the perfect fit and I couldn't have asked for a better experience with Rescue Me. I have recommended this site multiple times to friends and they have had their own success stories! Thank you Rescue Me, and thank you Kathy and Mary from PawsUp!!!!!

     I recently posted a dog on Rescue Me and I'm happy to say she found a few in only a few days. It was easy to post information about my dog and a lovely older couple adopted her. I couldn't have been happier for her though I hated to see her go.

     We were so sad that we had to give up our dog. We were moving to a new home with a small yard and it just wasn't fair to bring him with us. We found a family with two acres that lives within 10 minutes of our new home. I can't thank Rescue Me enough! It made the process so much easier and it worked out well for everyone. Thanks for providing such a valuable service; we truly appreciate it. God Bless you all!

     Bo Jangles... We rescued him as a 10 month old puppy from life in a crate that he had outgrown. After we helped him adjust to and discover life outside the crate, this boy has been a flawless companion for us. We love him like life itself. About two years ago, my hubby and I both suffered big losses in our health, income and home situation. Daddy is now in long term care and I am moving to senior housing. So sad, Bo Jangles can't come with me. From devastated to overjoyed, this is how our story goes. Because of Rescue Me, Bo Jangles found LuAnn and Sammy, and a wonderful new home surrounded by exercise trails and a new friends to take him for runs on the beach. I'm so happy for Bo I can't even be upset. LuAnn did the crying for me when we traded hands with the leash. I love you, my big fluffy boy! Take good care of LuAnn and Sammy! I know they love you already!

     To make a long story short, a local pound will only keep dogs for a maximum of five days (yeah, I know) so these two puppies were supposed to be euthanized on Monday. I ended up taking them and getting them ready to go to a forever home. This site was awesome! It is breed and gender specific, which helps everyone choose the right dog for them. The female was adopted today to a home I myself could not have imagined to be any better for her...... Thank you Mr. and Mrs. M!!!! The male is still available for adoption! Thank you to everyone who cares about the unwanted and to groups/websites like Rescue Me!

     Diesel found his furever home Thursday night! So thankful to Rescue Me for posting Diesel's pic and story for David and Austin to see. They drove three and a half hours one way to see Diesel and how he and their dog, Link, would get along. It was love at first sight for these two precious babies! I know David & Austin will give Diesel all the love, care, and attention he deserves. And now he also has a new best friend to romp and play with every day! Thank you, David, Austin, and especially Rescue Me for this happy ending!!!

     We were looking for a yellow lab puppy for some time and I finally found the Rescue Me web site. In one day, we managed to find three different dogs that we were interested in and ultimately decided to adopt Blondie to save her from a scheduled euthanasia. We won't be able to pick her up until later this week after the vet sees her but we're one extremely excited family. Thank you to Rescue Me for helping us save this beautiful dog!

     Dally arrived at our rescue only two weeks ago. She came from a high kill shelter and was pulled from that week's euthanasia list. After vetting and spaying, she came to Be Loved Rescue. Already she has found the most wonderful family! She will live on an island and I can't think of anything closer to heaven for a lab!!! Thank you, Rescue Me, for bringing this wonderful family to Dally. A happy ending for all!

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!
