     Amazing Zita found her forever home! She loves her new family and they adore her! She sleeps with her two legged siblings, enjoys long walks twice a day, has a fenced in yard, tons of toys, and most of all, a family to call her very own. Thank you to all who have shared and cared and thank you to Rescue Me! for allowing her to be posted and networked on your site.

     In the beginning, I was a bit leery of posting Sailor online, but to my surprise, Rescue Me! was a VERY easy and quick process. Within a day, Sailor was sought out by a family, and two days later he was sought out again by another family... This family was in constant communication and continued to reassure me that Sailor would be well loved and cared for. I am 100% sure that Sailor will now be in a home that is better fitting for him, and will be able to go on long walks and have a mommy who will give him full attention. He will be able to grow up with another puppy and the family's son. Thank you, Rescue Me!, for allowing us to be able to re-home with reassurance.

     Cleopatra has been adopted! A wonderful new home on 5 acres with an invisible fence. She will be the only pet in a home that has a history of long lived dogs of over 13 years each. She is now living inside this new spacious home and riding around in passenger seat with her new best friend.

     Rescue Me helped me to find a new home for my Nino. It was a bitter sweet moment because I had him for nine years, he was a great companion for me and I couldn't bear the thought of a shelter putting down such a great dog. I had so many replies within minutes after posting I had to take a deep breath. I want to thank Rescue Me! for existing, and helping me and many others find homes for our pets who would other wise be euthanized. Thank you, Korneil

     We are so thankful that there are sites like this, and thrilled that Rescue Me! is free. The new forever home includes a twelve year old little boy who had recently moved from another state and was having trouble adjusting. The parents wanted to get him a playmate to help ease the social pressure. They have experience with training, and wanted a four year old dog. Zoe fit the bill perfectly. Thank you, Rescue Me!

     I was very pleased I could post a puppy I rescued to save her, and find the best home possible for her. I have two dogs and just wanted to save her from terrible things happening to her. Rescue Me! was exactly what I needed since I am not a rescue myself. I got a lot of response on the puppy and found her a perfect match. Thank you very much.

     Zeus was adopted by a retired couple who have fallen in love with him... he walks on the leash for them... he plays fetch with their 8 year old grandson... when family and church members visit he entertains them... he sleeps in his crate at night and will take a nap in it during the day... he does chase the cats, but his new mom and dad are working with him on that and he is getting better at resisting that urge but the kitten likes to torment and that is sometimes just too much for Zeus to resist... best of all he loves sleeping as close as he can get to his new mom and dad, usually on their feet while they watch TV.

     Mona Lisa had a pretty tough start to her life. Rescued from a notorious Animal Control facility, many people worked together to move her out of that system and find her a new life. She had been extensively bred and had also been used as a bait dog in a dog fight ring. We worked very hard with her and she ended up being fostered in my home... She had been networked extensively, but Staffordshire Terriers can be difficult to place. Within a month of posting her on Rescue Me! - I received a telephone call from a wonderful young man who loves this breed and had been searching for one. His ex-wife kept his last dog and he missed that dog so desperately. He came to meet her, and it was love at first sight!! Mona is a special girl, and this was terribly difficult for me after fostering her - but she needed a one-dog home with someone who could dedicate time for her training and walking and give her all the one-on-one attention she deserves. I am thrilled with the process - and with the help of Rescue Me! - Miss Mona Lisa is smiling her big smile all the way to her new home.

     My heart does leap for joy because of the adoption of lovely Lyla! Lyla was at our shelter for too long. And everyone passed her by because she had pit in her... We don't do DNA but suggested she was part pit and border mix. She had the soul and spirit or the Great American Shelter Dog! Finally a young family from Portland saw her, and she was the one. I did warn of her killer tail of happiness. I am so happy to say that Lyla departed the depot of the Josephine County Animal Shelter on the 'Hero Train' today... Destination: Portland, Oregon. Sound the Horns, blow the whistles, hail the conductor, she is home for ever! Thank you Rescue Me... my heart is crying with joy!

     Hi Jeff, my name is Amy and I just wanted to thank you for creating this web site. I am currently fostering a sweet red nose pitbull and her puppies. They were rescued from some pretty miserable conditions. I found 4 of them their furever homes through all my wonderful close friends on facebook. I have found myself running out of options to rehome all of the rest of the pups. I was told about your web page and immediatley posted. With in the first week of calls I met with a wonderful couple who have other large breed dogs. They came and picked her up today to go to her new home. I know they will have her for the rest of her life. I am so grateful that I am able to feel comfortable in knowing that your organization helped her get there. Thank you so much!!! Sincerely, Amy :)

     Success!!! Buddy was adopted today by a loving couple with 2 children near the Austin area. I'm sure he was a little scared at first when he was taken out of his comfort zone, inside the house with his siblings, to meet the family but then once he acclimated to his surroundings and got comfortable with them, he was much better. He was giving kisses in no time and receptive to the children too. He and his brother Doc were both adopted by the family as a pair. Buddy, his brother Doc, and New Master along with the family will have lots of new adventures ahead. First thing is they get a new sister dog, Tinkerbell, to meet and show them the ropes!!! Thank you Jeff Gold for putting Rescue Me.org together to help place these wonderful animals who are so mistreated and misunderstood! I already miss those 2 little love sponges but I know with out a doubt that they are in a wonderful home and loving family and strong master who will give them lots of positive training, direction, affection and all the exercise they need and crave. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!

     Sable has a new home at last!! In late May we got a call about Sable and took her to meet her new family and their dog Buddy. The family, Tom and Laurie, had adopted Buddy less than a year before but he came with anxiety issues and an escape routine. Buddy seemed to want to leave his yard to go visit other dogs instead of bonding fully with his new family. And then came Sable, in the hopes she would ground Buddy more and stop his running away problem. Well, the idea was a big hit. Buddy and Sable have become fast friends and Buddy has settled down a lot and has not run away even once since he got his new sister. Sable bonded quickly to Tom, who couldn't be happier about that. Buddy seemed to bond with Laurie more and so now each dog has it's own snuggle buddy for time spent on the couch :) Sable is well adjusted to her new home and Tom and Laurie, and especially Buddy, all love her. Her former family miss her a lot but are happy to know she is in her element and getting lots of attention and pampering. Sable is a great watchdog too. And in mid July Sable and Buddy will be staying with Sable's former family for a week while their parents go on vacation. Free dog sitting was part of the arrangement and it will give Buddy a chance to socialize with other dogs and just learn to have more fun and hopefully less anxiety about strangers and new places. Everyone is so happy Sable has a wonderful new family!!

     Monkey found her forever home with a family in Cary just before Memorial Day. She now lives with Yvonne and her 4 kids and gets LOTS of attention. They adore her and she knows it. Monkey was rehomed because she wanted to be the center of attention in a 6 dog home and didn't share well. Now she is 'the center of the universe' and is very happy about her new home. One look at her funny face confirms that :) Her former owner has visited her since she was rehomed and it is clear that Monkey has found her place in this wide world. She plays all day and has already demonstrated to her new family that she is an excellent watch dog. All the kids in her new home adore here and even let Monkey sleep with the youngest child as they have become great friends. Monkey's prayers were answered in this family who find Monkey to be a great addition to their family. Deepest thanks to 'Rescue Me' for helping find this great family for Monkey!!! Her former family miss her funny face but seeing her happy and getting to hog all the attention of not 1 but 5 people is a joy :) God Bless!!

     Dear Jeff, I am very happy to say that Tank was adopted out to a wonderful home after being placed with a shelter! The couple that saw him on the website instantly bonded with him when they went to see him. It was a good feeling to know that the breed, size and color didn't play a factor in their wanting to adopt and that he was going to a good home. It's amazing to know that there are loving caring people out there who are willing to adopt a dog and give them a loving home. Thanks so much for having such a wonderful site for people to use and help the dogs. I will get around to donating something in the next few days. It was a great experience. Sincerely, Dario R.

     Dear Jeff, I am very grateful for the Rescue Me website. It allowed me to rescue Deejay, a senior AKC champion AmStaff and sire of my AmStaff, Jada. I was just surfing the web one day researching pedigrees on AmStaffs and your site popped up, which I thought was very strange. The first dog on the site was Deejay. I immediately called my husband and we decided we had to go get him, so I emailed and called Gerald...his owner. My Jada is 8 and Deejay will soon be 13. Jada drives him crazy licking him in the face and they loved each other from day one. He has been here since Sunday and is adjusting. He is hard of hearing, has arthritis, and has limited sight, but we will take care of him until his last day. Thanks so much for your efforts in finding placement for this wonderful breed. I will get around to donating something in the next few days....just busy trying to get 5 French bulldogs use to Deejay too! Sincerely, Cretia Ridderikhoff

     Dear Jeff, I am very happy to say that Sasha was adopted out to a wonderful home! The couple that saw her on the website instantly fell in love with her and were enthralled when they came to see her. They made us feel very safe and happy to know she was going to a good home, and were very willing to stay in touch with us and update us with pictures of her. It's amazing to know that there are loving caring people out there who are willing to adopt a dog instead of buying as puppies. It was incredibly sad to see her go and our hearts broke, but at the same time we were happy to know she will be well taken care of and spoiled. Thanks so much for having such a wonderful site for people to use and help the dogs. It was a great experience for me. Sincerely, Lisa Amey

     Our ultimate wish was to find a foster family for Diesel until we could get into a place of our own. We tried everywhere and anywhere we could find or were directed to. We hit a lot of 'no room' 'at capacity for 'aggressive breeds' or 'you'll have to surrender.' We were at the point of needing to surrender when I put the listing on here. The very first day I received an email from a wonderful woman who was willing to help:) I don't think we could have asked for a more perfect foster family for our boy!! Thank you thank you thank you!!!

     Hi Jeff, Your website is the only one I could find to help pets find new homes. If it wasn't for your site, God knows where Bella would be! She was adopted yesterday by a wonderful family that has had Staffordshire Terriers in the past, and is familiar with the breed and has rescued several dogs. She is sleeping in their bed and will even get to go camping with them! It is truly a happily ever after. They offered to bring Bella back for visits too! I can't say enough good things about your site. Thank you so much for your site and God bless you for all you do for these poor animals! Best regards, Barb Ayala
