     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!

     Jojo was adopted yesterday, finally. She is a very timid girl, who had a sad beginning. We were looking for a settled couple with maybe one other dog, that would be patient until Jojo made her human/dog bond. A very nice couple saw this post and came out yesterday. They very patiently spent hours with her until she felt confident enough to come out and go on a walk with them. I know this is going to be a wonderful home for her, and I couldn't be more pleased that they saw her post on Rescue Me.

     We lost our 14-year-old lab mix last month, and wanted another dog right away. When I saw Winston on Rescue Me, I knew he was the one. Bill, from Riley Rescue, brought him to our house. We immediately fell in love. Thank you for giving us our little sweetheart.

I cried when she left, although we needed her to find a furever home due to our health. Her personality is missed! Thank you, Rescue Me, for posting her photo.

     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. Thank you for this amazing site where these adoptable animals can be seen everywhere and not just limited to one state or county. Lima will be going home with our amazing transporters, thanks in part to your adoption site. Keep up the amazing work of saving so many lives, Rescue Me!!!

     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.

     Rocky, a handsome, soulful Lab/Mix, came into the shelter from the city streets as a starving young dog. He responded well to shelter life, made many new human and four-legged friends. He is now in a great home where he is happy and healthy. Thank you, Rescue Me for creating this website, which allows us to post animals, and allows them to be seen far and wide. If Rocky could speak, he would thank you too!!!

     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!

     We had several inquiries about Bosco within days of our posting on Rescue Me. He is in a wonderful and loving new home with two animal loving humans and three cats. We have received e-mail updates and pictures, which has helped us know that he is adjusting well. Excellent experience with Rescue Me!

     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. Keep it up and never stop fighting to save animals. Adopt don't shop!

     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!!!!!

     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!

     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.

     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.

     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!

     Just to let you know my sweet Brylie was adopted through Rescue Me. She was adopted by an older retired couple and so far is doing great.

     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!

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

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

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

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

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

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

Her bleak future, wrapped around a tree and heart worm positive, has now turned into life with a new mom and dad sitting on the sofa between them, riding up to The mountains to be with children and grandchildren with her family.

     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!
