     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!

     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.

     We posted our Dakota after a hectic move to acreage. We have three other dogs and four cats. He snapped moving out here and started attacking the cats that he always loved. Within 24 hours of posting, a wonderful couple called me (who had a quiet life with no other pets) and wanted to know about him. They lost their dog months ago and fell in love with our dog immediately. I WILL MISS MY DOG SO MUCH!!!! But he will be so much happier thanks to this website!!!!! These adoptees are the most wonderful people I could ever imagine for my knucklehead!! THANK YOU SO MUCH, RESCUE ME!!!!

     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.

     I received many inquiries about Baby through Rescue Me. I can not thank everyone enough! I'm happy to tell everyone that Baby has found her new home. She was adopted by a loving couple who have made it their mission to foster and/or adopt only older larger dogs. She is fitting in very well at her new home, where she was quickly welcomed into the pack. Thanks to all who responded! This site is so easy to navigate, it's easy to post, as well as to search. Keep up the good work Rescue Me! Thanks for being there! As an extra little note to everyone, we've also been able to make some new connections and we now have a new way to show our appreciation. We were contacted by many who were involved with local rescues, and we will now be volunteering to trap and socialize feral cats and kittens. We are so happy to be able to have made so many new friends!

     Thank you Rescue Me for making it possible for me to adopt my new puppy. If it weren't for your site I would have never known about Prince. After having to send my 16 year old dog to the Rainbow Bridge, I felt it was time to add a new addition to my family. Rescue Me made it easy to do just that by posting Prince. Prince is adjusting to his new home and is a happy, healthy 11 week old puppy.

     I ended up keeping Bella. I fostered three pups and Bella helped with the fostering. One of the pups, the runt, ended up being unadoptable due to a heart murmur and more. I raised the money to get her heart checked and she should live a normal life. Bella and the pup, Mia, bonded so well, I just couldn't separate them. So, I now have two young, energetic dogs. But hey, it keeps me healthy too! Thank you, Rescue Me, for this site.

     I fell in love with Emmy Lou when I saw her picture on your website. When I showed her to my husband, he said 'call right away what are you waiting for?' We were the first to call, got our application in immediately and were approved. The foster family was amazing. It was unclear if the puppy possibly had Giardia. The foster mom kept the puppy for a week to treat her and then got a stool sample to assure she was clear. The foster mom, sent me pictures everyday and updated me throughout the day on Emmy Lou's antics and progress. It was hard to wait to pick her up, but when we got her it was worth every minute. We lost our 15 year old boxer/lab mix and were missing having a dog in our lives. Emmy Lou has filled our hearts again and we could not be happier. Did I mention the one o'clock am needing to go out!!! LOL. It's like having a baby again. What could be better? Thank you to all the volunteers for everything you do for dogs. I think Rescue Me is amazing.

     Tippy was adopted by a lovely young woman who drove four hours one way to meet Tippy and give her a loving home. Aly has a three year old puppy who will now have a big sister. Tippy welcomed Aly very warmly right away and did well in the drive to her new home. Aly has called me to tell me how she did in the car and how she is doing in her new home. I have also been welcomed to call anytime to learn how she is doing and will get photos too. Rescue Me gave me hope for Tippy and to know my puppy will be happy in her new home. She was my family and helped me through difficult times in my life and now I can move into my new home knowing she is well taken care of and loved. I will be forever grateful of your website and services.

     We have had our three year old lab Annie since she was a puppy. As time went on, family members started showing allergies as well as having asthma problems. We tried to make it work but those who were affected were pulling away and the burden of caring for her became the task for Mom, who also suffered from allergies and asthma. It became too much and we wanted Annie to be happy. So after much searching and debating, we decided to re-home her. We were uncomfortable posting her in our local paper and Craigslist. Upon searching, we came across Rescue Me. Although we didn't feel Annie needed to be rescued per say, we felt this site would only get traffic of those who were animal lovers and were serious about being a forever family. We love Annie and it has been extremely difficult to make this decision. Through lots of tears, we picked a family who answered all of our many questions and agreed to become friends through a social media page so we can see how Annie is doing as well as possibly stopping by when we are in the area so we can say 'hi'. We are so grateful for Rescue Me and giving us a safe and secure way to find a perfect home for our sweet Annie. Thank you!

     This was my first time using this site as well as raising puppies from birth. I have nothing but great things to say about both experiences. My boyfriend and I had to unexpectedly go out of town when my father had a heart attack. We left our three adult dogs at a rescue farm where my dog has stayed previously. One of our dogs ran off with the neighbor's dog, who was not neutered, and, shortly after, we had seven puppies. It was not planned or intended, but we knew that we had to do whatever possible to find responsible pet owners and great homes for each puppy. We planned on posting in area vet offices and networking with local rescues. None of this has been necessary since posting on Rescue Me was our first step. It turned out to be the only step we needed to take. The communication we received was phenomenal and we were able to find amazing homes for all the puppies. We have received updates and pictures of each of the seven puppies. The new pup-parents, we found from Rescue Me were outstanding and the homes we settled on never caused us doubt. We considered finding this site a blessing because we were able to help our puppies find their forever homes!

     Stripe went to her new home today. I have to admit her adoption was a hard one for me. I foster in my home and am a coordinator for Wet Kisses and Wagging Tails. I have had her in my home for a while, with her mom and sisters and brother. I have grown very attached to all my fosters and letting one go often has me in tears. I know she is going to a great new family and that is what comforts me. I grew very attached to her. Her personality always brightened my day. Her new family drove for over three hours to pick her up and they were very excited to get to meet her and hold her. Thank you, for all you do to help find homes for those in need. Your site is a great help to our rescue. Our rescue is a small, and, without your site, we would not be able to do what we do. Thank you, Rescue Me!

     Trevor is a special guy. He is partly blind and was trained through our prison program, Wet Kisses and Wagging Tails Rescue. We are a small group that foster in our homes and through our prison program, which has enabled us to help our local shelter keep their no kill for near a year now. We are able to save more lives with the prison program and using Rescue Me. Trevor was pulled straight from the shelter and went to the prison program to get one on one training and lots of love and attention. He got adopted by a mother and daughter that will keep training him to go into retirement homes and schools to teach others to love and respect dogs. He is one blessed dog that will be sharing his love with so many with the help of his new family. Thank you for your help, Rescue Me. You made it possible for them to find us. We would have never found this family, and they would have never found us!! Love your site and all the help you have given us!! Thank you!!

     Due to our daughter moving away and our constant travelling, we felt like we no longer had the time and the attention that Misty needed and deserved. We put her up for adoption on Rescue Me and, within six hours, we had a response. Misty now has a new home with wonderful parents and their two children. Best of all, she has the cutest little sister, Sophie, a 14 month old Labradoodle. Misty and Sophie immediately clicked when they met and are becoming best friends!

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

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

     Almost every dog I've rescued -- and that has about 16 dogs in two weeks-- I have adopted out through Rescue Me within a week of posting. The postings go nearly viral in the rescue community which then reposts the post, and the response has been extraordinary. Christy, this magnificent chocolate lab, was scheduled to be put down along with six other highly adoptable dogs at a high kill shelter. A friend and I pulled all seven dogs at the 11th hour, and all but one who I am now fostering found ideal adoptive homes largely through Rescue Me. We ask all potential adopters for a vet reference to ensure they are good pet owners. I've gotten suspicious calls from dog fighters, so NOTE TO INDIVIDUALS who post: thoroughly check out potential adopter by asking for a vet reference (phone number) at least and if they are local do a home visit.

     Thank you for Rescue Me. I can not say enough about how this site has helped us as a rescue and the people that adopt. I got emails right away with people interested in Daisy, and I found her a perfect home. Her adopters drove four hours to meet her today and take her to her new home. She will be so loved and happy. Thank you so much for this site, it is the best!!

     We lost one of our furry babies and our surviving girl looked so sad when we had to leave her alone. After signing up with a local Lab rescue and attending a few adoption events (non-Labs), I came across Rescue Me. Ella's human mom loved and nurtured her, but could not keep her for various reasons. We are so thankful for this chance to continue to give Ella the love and nurturing she has had and to fill the empty spot in our home!

     You have a real gem in Anne Somerfeld as a rescuer. She brought Daisy to my house to check the condition of where this dog was going to live and for me to meet Daisy. This is the sweetest dog I have ever encountered. She is wonderful. Anne is finishing up the heartworm medicine this week and I am supposed to pick her up Monday. Thank you for this program, I have sent a donation thru Paypal. I have never seen anyone who cares as much about her adoptions as Anne does. Please let her know how much I appreciate her. Thanks again, Rescue Me.

     I am new to the rescue world, and I am so grateful for this site for helping getting our rescues out there. Hoss found a great home, and will be loved. He is a big boy and a lot of people could not and would not want to take him on. His new Dad, is prepared and used to a large Lab in his life. It's a match made in Heaven, I know it. Thank you to Rescue Me and John for adopting Hoss. I had fostered Hoss, I fell in love with him myself because we have big boy labs too. A Lab lover myself, it was hard to let him go, but knowing he is going to get all his own attention and will also help John heal from his loss. That is what makes this site so great! Thank you for your site and hard work too. Saving as many as we can.

     I put Jack on Rescue Me on a Sunday, and on Thursday his new family found him. Even though it broke our hearts to re-home him, he is very happy having children to play with. His new family loves him very much, and because of that we are happy. Thank you Lab Rescue Me for your assist.

     Thanks so much for hosting Rescue Me. We tried everything we could to find them a home but had no success. They are terrific animals. Within a week of posting here, they went to a great loving new home and another chance at life. God bless this site and the Angels that work together to preserve these precious animals.

     We were looking for a new dog for our two teenage boys. They wanted a playmate and a cuddle buddy. A Lab seemed like the best choice. Rescue Me made it a lot easier to find a reputable organization. Everyone we dealt with was very quick to get back to us and give us any info we needed and if they didn't have any in their care, they would recommend others. We adopted this little guy and he is exactly what we were looking for, he has a forever home as part of our family. The foster Mom did a great job and the dogs were in fantastic shape. Very social and loved people. I would Highly recommend Rescue Me to anyone who is looking for a dog. They just made it so much easier with daily updates on new dogs in the breed I was interested in and you could just look at boys or girls. Thank you again for making it easier and more helpful.

     Thank you, Rescue Me, for sharing Thunder to find his home. He was scheduled to be euthanized today. . A home was found for him eight hours before his appointment. How awesome is that? And then, I received a notice from his page that another adopter was interested in him. I was so happy to be able to help Thunder get his second chance to live the life he so greatly deserves and thank you again for posting him. I will definitely post here again.

     Jake was our baby for seven years. Unfortunately, he was not great with children and we had to find a new home for him. With the help of this site, I was contacted by numerous people who were interested in this sweet guy. My husband and I finally were able to find him the perfect loving forever home and that is all thanks to this wonderful site. I am so appreciative of the service that made this possible. It was such a difficult decision to make, but Rescue Me put us in contact with so many amazing people who were interested and ultimately the lovely woman who adopted Jake. I cannot praise this site enough. I am eternally grateful.

     Oscar went to his forever home today. His new parents are wonderful! I couldn't believe the amount of responses I received within hours of posting Oscar for adoption. I met very nice potential couples, everyone I communicated with were positive people. It was easy to go through all the emails and pick out potential homes. Thank you Rescue Me so much for helping me find the perfect home for our beautiful Oscar.

     When I posted Grace on Rescue Me, I thought I would either be wasting my time and get no responses or I would be attracting some crazy person out there. I am so happy to report how wrong I was and how great a help this website was to Grace and me. She received numerous responses and as a matter of fact, it was quite overwhelming. I am so happy to report that Grace has found a new home and it's a wonderful match! I visited her in the new home and she is so happy and adjusting perfectly to her new owners and her new surroundings. The new family is experienced with dog ownership and they offer her a big beautiful home, a haven of a yard, and most importantly a family who will cherish and love her! The family will keep in touch and send me pictures from time to time. Thank you Jeff Gold and the Rescue Me organization!

     We hated to part with Nacho, but when we sold our home and had to move to a rental, we had trouble finding anyone that would allow us to keep one, but definitely not two big labs. Nacho wasn't the kind of dog that would be happy out in someone's yard. He's very needy and wanted to be around me or in my lap. I was thrilled when I got a call within a day. Nacho's new owner is retired and was looking specifically for a black lab. He gets to spend huge amounts of time with her and her grand kids. He's no longer left alone during the day when someone's at work. It was such a blessing to have found a perfect forever home for him. He's really living the good life now, more spoiled than I could have hoped for! Thank you, Rescue Me.

     Poor little Misty was born with several birth defects- may be the result of interbreeding. We posted her anyway, hoping there was an angel out there somewhere who would consider adopting her and giving her some love and a good home, despite her problems. Thanks to Rescue Me, we found just the right person for her and she is now in her new home. We hope for the best for this little dog.

     Well, we have only had Baron about four hours, but he is a sweetheart. We adopted another dog along with him, and we have an eight year old black lab as well. They all seem to be getting along. They have already chased each other in our backyard, and are now worn out. We have high hopes that all three dogs will get along with each other, and be a part of our family for a long time. Just a note about Small Dogs Animal Rescue: They were wonderful to work with. A very simple adoption process compared with others, we have dealt with in the past. Thank you Rescue Me.

     Thanks to Marilyn at a rescue group, this dog was saved. His owner had been given a last minute's eviction notice and was hysterical and more concerned about the fate of his pet than for himself. Rescue Me brought people into play that not only took him in but also drove a very long way to get him. They then got him adopted by a couple that were looking for a wiggly BFF. We are grateful for your site and to the rescue group that made it all possible.

     We posted Luci on Rescue Me on a Monday night, and she had a new home by Wednesday. She couldn't have matched up with a more compatible family. She did not have any room to run at our house and sat in the house all winter getting plump without much attention. As our family has grown and kids have gotten older, we are gone all day and most evenings. Luci was not getting the attention she deserved. Her new family will be there for her, and she will live the rest of her life loving life! Thank you for helping us place her. I could not have found a home like she is going to without the Rescue Me website.

     I posted Cameron's picture and details, and within a week I had multiple responses. The couple that adopted her had recently lost their dog of 15 years and wanted another Lab, but smaller in size. They came to see Cameron, and it seemed they all bonded immediately. Rescue Me helped me find a great loving home for Cameron. She had lost her owner recently and had no where to go and no one to share all her love and energy with. Thanks to this service, she now has a new, loving family, and I just know her original owner is looking down with great joy, knowing she will be loved and cared for.

     I was looking for a puppy to adopt from a local shelter. Unbelievably, none were found at shelters close to home. A link took me to this site. The best part of the posting is that it lists energy level and personality, along with a picture and other bio information. I ended up adopting from Brantley Animal Rescue in Georgia. The foster Mom was VERY helpful. The dog is FABULOUS and healthy. I would definitely adopt from them again, and I wouldn't have found them without Rescue Me. Thanks!

     Rescue Me put me in touch with a number of deserving families and individuals interested in providing a loving home for my beloved lab, Samson. Within a matter of a few weeks, I was able to place him with the perfect family. I would never have been able to do so without a platform like Rescue Me!

He has been my faithful companion since I brought him home, and he has met more than 20 people in our complex who fell in love with him. Thanks to Al and Nancy for posting him on Rescue Me. I would never have known this treasure was out there needing help.

     I was at my wits' end and desperate to find a new home for my 'best friend', Cooper. Within 24 hours of posting info on Rescue Me, I received the perfect response and am happy to report that Cooper was adopted by an adorable teenager that was 'looking for a best friend'! I spent last evening with Cooper's new family and am so thankful to have found folks who will love him as much as we do. Big thanks to Jeff and the team at Rescue Me. This happy ending would not have been possible without you all!
