     I was really happy with Rescue Me! and so was Thunder. I posted him around1:30pm and Thunder had a new family by 6:00pm. I was so worried I would not find a home for him. It was easy to post and only took a few minutes. The results were awesome. Thanks again Rescue Me!

     Harley has found her forever home with a wonderful family. They are a wonderful young couple with a little boy, they are in love with Harley. She seems to be very happy with them. They traveled 4 hours (one way) to meet Harley. Thank you so much for your wonderful web site! It made finding her a permanent home so easy. Yes, I will be sending you a donation. Thank you again for your love and devotion to such a wonderful, and often times misunderstood, breed of dogs!

     I agonized over rehoming my dog. I was encouraged to begin receiving inquiries so quickly. Your recommendation to ask to speak to a potential family's Vet was excellent advice which was heeded. Mia is going to a wonderful family who lost their 13 year old Shepherd to cancer about a year ago. I was convinced by their scrapbook of cherished pet memories and wonderful stories that she will be happy having their undivided attention. It was tough to choose between such promising candidates as there are some very loving people willing to open their hearts & homes to a new member of the family. I would encourage others to look for a pet here first.

     After only a few days on Rescue Me! I had numerous inquiries on Max and found a wonderful home for him. The family flew down from Northern Nevada and spent several days getting to know him so the transition would be easier. He loves them and they adore him! I will recommend Rescue Me! to anyone who needs to find a warm and loving home for their pet. My only advice is to make sure to carefully interview any prospective owners and make sure ahead of time if they have a suitable yard, will be crating the pet, or have another animal (or child) in the home that is aggressive.

     I posted my shepherd on this website and soon began receiving calls. The family that got him were eager to meet him and came out to see him. The thing that was important to us was that he took to them immediately. They have sent us pics of him and say that he is adapting well. Thank You.

     I was looking for a playmate for my other male dog, Buddy, who is about 5 years old. I spotted Candy on your website and thought the two would make a great pair. She has learned many things already from Buddy and a few more things he doesn't know or do. We are very happy with Candy and the two play and run together like old friends. Candy has met other dogs on our daily walks and seems to be very friendly to all those she meets. Thank you for putting me in touch to place her in our home. She seems to be very happy to be sharing her new life with us.

     Delgado was rescued by us at our neighborhood dog park. After getting him healthy and vaccinated we put him up for adoption on Rescue Me! We didn't require any money because we helped him out of the kindness of our hearts. The family that has him now has a great lake to take him to with doggie parties, and plenty of love with their daughter. I am so happy Rescue Me! helped us find a great home for this wonderful pooch.

     Rescue Me! provides an important avenue for people who have hard to place pets. My Iris is 8 years old and is not friendly with cats. Several people we know loved her and wanted her, but most of them had cats. When people called about Iris they were concerned about her age and her aggressiveness with cats. It would take the right match and circumstance for her. We started looking for Iris a new home as soon as we realized we were moving to another country. Yesterday she went to her new home and her new friends, thanks to Rescue Me! Her new owner saw her on this site and drove two hours to meet her. We then set her up to visit him and it was a great match! My husband and I are grateful for the opportunity to ensure her safety and future. She is happier than she has ever been! Thank you! Regards, Marie

     Hi Jeff. We lost our German shepherd in June 2013. He was a State Police trained shepherd, and very gentle. We had him for 12 years. We were are at a great loss, and decided to adopt another German Shepherd. We came across Rescue Me! on the internet and found Toby. We decided this was the dog for us. We are so happy to have been able to rescue Toby, and look forward to him coming to us soon. The wait time was unbelievable, never expected to hear from Rescue Me! so quickly. Thank you so much for the work your organization is doing for the animals. Truly, Philomena Butler

     My German Shepherd crossed with Lab was in desperate need of a loving home with a big yard. After listing her on Rescue Me! I received a call from a gentleman that has a farm who was looking for a companion for his 9-year old Labrador. We took Sally to them over the weekend and the place was an absolute dream. Sally immediately felt at home, and loved nothing more than to run around and explore. We spent some time there to let her adapt to the new surroundings. Peter and his wife are extremely loving and caring people and they committed to loving Sally as much as we do. Judging from the way their other animals is being treated, I have no doubt that Sally found the best home ever.

     We found Bella wandering in our rural area almost six months ago. I had seen her many times before close to our house, and thought she belonged to one of our neighbors. Then, one morning as I was on my way to work, I saw her out on the main highway. I was afraid she would get hit by a car, so I stopped and intended to coax her into my car and take her back, and later find out who owned her. She didn't need any coaxing, but whimpered and all but jumped into my arms. She was dirty and had some splotches of tar on her. We cleaned her up and took pictures of her and posted online and in the neighboring grocery store, vets office, laundry mat, etc. No one ever claimed Bella, so we posted her on Rescue Me! We didn't have too long to wait until a nice man called about Bella. After emailing back and forth, we chose a place to meet, and on a Saturday morning Bella met her new family. It was so very heartwarming and satisfying to find someone who will give her a forever home, and love her as much as she deserves! Thanks, Rescue Me!

     Hi Jeff, So glad I found your site as I have adopted a beautiful 4 1/2 month old long haired german shepherd pup from Jodi and Mike, named Simba. Me and my sister made the 2 1/2 hour trip to pick him up. His mom and dad are wonderful, caring, loving people. They even sent me home with a care package of homemade doggie biscuits. Simba is doing wonderful and I'm just loving him to pieces. He is everything that Jodi described him as and better. Si is a perfect fit for me and will be spoiled and loved immensely. He did not know how to do steps, especially since I have 4 steps out back door which is a doggie door, and he mastered them beautifully. I will highly recommend Rescue Me! to others when searching for an animal. I love how easy it was to use and communicate with the parents. I will gladly make a donation to your cause, also. Thanks again to founder Jeff, as well as thanks to Jodi and Mike, Si's parents

     I posted on Rescue Me... a wonderful woman called and said she fell in love with the photo of my Mama Girl and wanted to know if she was still available. After a thorough home check, reference check and numerous conversations, I drove the girl that I had rescued from the streets five months earlier to her new home. It was truly an amazing gift to have an outlet like Rescue Me! for individuals to showcase dogs that need a home.

     Thank you for this wonderful site. As difficult as it was to have to put my Lady on Rescue Me! to be rescued, I am thankful that this was an option. Although many families showed interest, I met with the first family as they were very proactive in meeting Lady. They drove four hours, hopeful to take Lady back with them. I'm thankful that it was a good meeting, and Lady was able to join her new family. Visiting with her new 'parents' I know that she will be very well taken care of, loved and spoiled. I will move to another state with peace of mind that my sweet Lady will continue to provide companionship and love to another family.

     'Rescue Me' was an awesome avenue for helping us find a good home for our beautiful German Shepherd! It only took about two weeks to find her a home, and we had multiple people contact us about her. Her new owners have even more ways to help her have lots of fun due to having a giant back yard, a swimming pool, etc. and the best thing about the whole deal is that they only live a couple hours away from where we are moving, and we will still be able to visit her anytime we want! This whole thing ended up being a blessing due to the fact that we were all heartbroken to have to find her a new home due to a job relocation in an area that considers German Shepherds aggressive breeds, but we will still be able to see her. Thank you 'Rescue Me!' for having such an awesome site that allows people to get help in certain situations that they may be in!

     Decided to get kids a German Shepherd for xmas. We fostered one for three years (found on Rescue Me!) while family lived out of state. They were unable to take him, and when they moved back I gave him back to them. Was going to get a puppy, and then we saw this one. He looks like our old foster, and like the one my boyfriend used to own. Brought him home and he's doing great. Did great with our dog and cat, glad we took the chance with a young adult.

     Duke has been adopted as of today! Rescue Me! was great help in finding him a 'forever' home. I received several e-mails from people interested in him.

If it doesn't, I will gladly take him back and try again using Rescue Me! Thank you for all you do in finding homes for German Shepherds who need it!

     We had to find a new home for Ralph. My husband found him on the side of the road and brought him home, but he did not get along with our two other dogs. We did not want to post on Craigslist because of all the horror stories about people using Craigslist, and putting him in a shelter was not an option. We also did not want someone to keep him on a chain in their backyard. We felt if someone from the Rescue Me! site inquired about him, they were truly looking for a dog to be a part of their family. His new family drove over two hours, spent time with him, and both the family and Ralph were happy with each other... So home he went with them! They even called the next day to let us know how much they loved him, and how well he was adjusting. If I ever again need to put a dog up for adoption, it will be through Rescue Me! Thank you!

     I have had Gunther since September 20, and it was truly the best decision I have ever made. He is the most loving and mild mannered dog. I have two granddaughters, with the youngest being five years old, and she has always been somewhat afraid of dogs because of them jumping on her. She was intimidated by Gunther at first because of his size, but now she adores Gunther and can't wait to come to my house on the weekends and play catch with him. I had a German Shepherd as a child and have always wanted to find another some day. I came across the Rescue Me! site by accident and am grateful for it. Thanks so much for Rescue Me!, it is wonderful, and now I have the most loyal companion. Annette

     We saw this beautiful dog's picture on Rescue Me! and knew immediately that we wanted to save him and bring him into our family. He was in a kill shelter and was listed on the urgent list as one that could be put down within the next few days. After contacting the shelter and getting them to agree to put a hold on the dog for a few days, my wife and I took a day off of work and drove 6 hours to reach the shelter. Zeus appears to be a German Shepherd / Husky mix and is only a few months old. He is an extremely friendly and loving dog and is full of the normal puppy love. While we were driving home, he kept trying to climb up into the front seat with us, so my wife finally had to get in the back seat with him. He was just starving for the attention he had never received. Within five minutes, we both knew we had made the right decision on our newest family member. The hardest part of the entire day was seeing the other dogs in this shelter and knowing that some of them might never have a chance of a decent life, or know what it feels like to be loved and cared for. Thank you for all your organization does.

     Hi, my baby girl Shay was posted on Rescue Me! and she has been adopted by a great couple. They allow her to run free on their 14 acres. They tell me she has a real knack for chasing rabbits back into their holes. I have been to visit her already, and plan to continue to go at least once a month. Though it truly broke my heart, the situation at our home with neighbors would not allow us to keep her, we know she is much better off. Sometimes the hardest decisions are the best decisions. I love what your website does for fellow German Shepherd/animal lovers such as myself. Please keep up the good work!

     Macy was adopted by a good family. We met at a park and let Macy get to know them. It was an emotional moment for my wife and I. She took to them rather quickly, and I was surprised since Macy is usually very cautious around strangers. We talked and the adoptive mother took Macy for a walk and when it was time to leave, Macy got in their car with no problems. Needless to say it was a somber drive back home. My wife and I know this is the best thing for Macy and we pray she'll be happy in her new home.

We were looking for a home without other pets or small children, so we had to turn down many applicants before finding the right one. After leaving her for a one day home visit, we knew we had found a home for Santanna where she would thrive... Her new owner is a perfect match, giving her so much love and attention and plenty of exercise. She has already adjusted and is protecting her new home. And the best part is, we can make regular visits so she won't forget about us! Thanks so much for your assistance.

     We are happy to say to all the fans of Akea, he has been adopted! Many calls came in for information on Akea and even today, after being taken off the adoption list, a nice lady named Sarah called to be sure that he was going to a good home. He will be sharing his forever home with a wonderful companion named Don. They will be doing many fun things together, just like when Akea's Dad was around. Don lives in a very serene location and will be able to take Akea on leisurely walks in the forest and even enjoy a nice ride on Don's pontoon boat! Don has a twelve year old named Baron who is failing in health, and Akea will be a comforting addition to the 'family' as Don and Baron transition through their difficult period. Thanks everyone for your kind interest in Akea. With regards, Judy

     King was a stray German Shepherd living on a porch in Alabama. I hadn't met him but a friend asked me to help find him a home. The first person to respond to my Rescue Me! post ended up adopting him, but she had to hang in there because it was difficult to get him from Alabama to Colorado where she lives, and there was no proof that he wasn't aggressive and could get along with her other two dogs. She stuck with it and kept checking on him. Since he was adopted she has texted me pictures of him on her bed, this huge stray German Shepherd is finally allowed inside. I just saw a video of him walking gently on a leash. His adopter is an angel, she could tell from his photo that he was a gentle giant, and she loved him immediately without even having met him. Rescue Me! literally saved this dog, and now a good family has a loyal friend. Thank you, Rescue Me!, please keep up your amazing work.

     As a small sanctuary, we generally have around ten dogs here at any one time. And sometimes, that many is just too much for some dogs, like Unka. We fell in love with him when we took him in from a woman who was desperate to find him a home. He did alright here with everybody for a while, but eventually we began to understand that Unka really didn't care about being with other dogs, he just wanted to be with people! It was too hard for him to bond with us because there was always another dog or dogs around whenever he came up to us, and he would just give up and walk away. So, we made the poignant decision to see if we could find him a new home. We listed Unka on Rescue Me! and within two weeks he had found his new home! We could not be happier with the wonderful family who fell in love and adopted him after meeting him just once. He went from living with a pack of ten dogs to being the king of his castle, from a country dog to a city dog who gets to go to Petco and Big R and hike on a leash and be loved by people!

     Zeus found a great home today. I was sad to see him go but the family that rescued him, I'm very happy to say, bonded with Zeus right away and showed love right off the bat. Thank you for taking Zeus into your hearts and your home. I know he will touch your lives as he has mine. Thank you Rescue Me! for a great service to provide for animals.

     Thank you so much for Rescue Me! My mom's attempt at rescuing the dog of her dreams didn't work out as planned. But thanks to Rescue Me!, Calypso has found a loving home. I got an email the very same night I posted her, and after a few days, she came from over 150 miles away to see Calypso. Of course she couldn't help but fall in love with such a wonderful dog. Thank you, Julie, for giving Calypso a chance at happiness and thank you, Rescue Me!, for giving all these dogs hope.

     Hi! Just wanted to say thank you, Rescue Me!, for providing a priceless service that I, until last week, wasn't even aware of. I needed desperately to find a good home for an amazing German Shepherd named Bo D, for Bo Diddley, that I rescued 6 months ago. I'm a traveling musician and am therefore on the road much too often to give this special dog the life that he deserves. As it turned out I had a one week break to find a good home for Bo D and I thought that might quite the long shot. A good friend recommended I try the Rescue Me! website and it was the first site I posted on. About two hours later I received my first call and after a short conversation made plans to have the gentleman that called, as well as his 7-year old son, meet Bo D. The introduction went splendidly as Bo D was on his best behavior, so we decided to go through with the adoption. We did have to wait a couple of days for the actual transfer because of logistics but when I dropped Bo D off at his new home earlier today we both knew I made the right decision. Bo D was beside himself to have three kids and a beautiful backyard to call home. And though it was a difficult moment for me, I knew I was leaving him in good hands. I had gotten many other calls and emails about Bo D in the days between posting and the actual adoption but it was the very first one that worked out! Thank you so much, Rescue Me!

     I love Rescue Me! After I lost two German Shepherd siblings due to old age within months of each other, I decided to not get siblings and only adopt from here on out. Through your organization I have already adopted Milla from Washington. She was badly used and abused, used for breeding. She had PTSD and bad arthritis but now she's the little queen of the house. Yesterday I adopted Zeus from Idaho. This time I stayed local, a short four hour drive rather than the ten hour drive that it took to get Milla. Milla was the first to greet Zeus to our home, then myself and another Shepherd, Sarg. I thought that it'd take some time and lots of work to incorporate him to my little pack; however, as I'm writing this all three are just chilling butt-to-butt on the cool floor, napping, and happy after a nice morning run. Zeus is going shopping today for the mandatory doggie necessities. Zeus is an awesome dog. I am really looking forward to a long and fun life with him, Milla, and Sarg. Thank you for Milla and Zeus. Rescue Me rocks!!!

     We listed Drifter with Rescue Me! on Saturday. Interested folks started calling and emailing us the next day. The couple that adopted him has a younger male dog. Drifter had a big smile on his face as they drove away to his new home. Thank you so much, Rescue Me!, for helping us find such a wonderful, loving, patient couple and family to adopt Drifter. We sure hope it works out well, and they keep him as their own dog for the rest of Drifter's life! Drifter is such a fun-loving boy, I hope they feel as blessed to have him as we feel to know he's in such a good home!

     Bear was found at the local animal control, about to be put down. I adopted him from there, got him neutered and got his rabies shot, then posted him on Rescue Me! Within a week, a woman contacted me about him. She drove two hours to meet him and fell in love. He is now running on 35 acres with his new best friend, a boxer mix. He is healthy, happy and loved! Thank you, Rescue Me!, for this wonderful site!

     I had no idea how to find a loving home for our rescue girl Sasha, but I came across Rescue Me! and checked it out. Turns out to be the happiest day for all of us. Within two hours of posting our girl on Rescue Me!, the very first person contacted us about Sasha. Her and her children were so nice, and you could tell right off that they could and would love and take care of her. They came right over to meet with us, and more importantly Sasha. Everything went great and we all had met a new friend and a 'forever loving home' for Sasha. I couldn't believe how wonderful this site was. Easy to add our pet, tell about her and everyone that responded about her was truly interested in her well being. I can hardly believe it was free and she has a new wonderful loving home, that i would probably not found if not for Rescue Me! Thank you for taking the hardest thing we had to do and make it easy to go through. I was so worried that she would not find her a forever home but because of you she found it, and now I don't have to worry about her not being loved. I pray that all the pets that go through 'Rescue Me!' will find a truly loving home because of this site. I will recommend you to anyone that is looking to adopt, or has to find their pet a new home. Thank you, and God bless.

     Bo went to his furever home today... I actually cried because I will miss him. But I am also so happy for him! He will have two fenced acres to run and play in, two boys to run with, and a little girl that he took to at once. He knew not to jump on her because she was little. He went to a good home, and I am glad for him.

     I adopted Sammy yesterday afternoon. She is the perfect German Shepherd for me and my fur family. I have been watching Rescue Me! posts on Facebook for some time, and also had my bet keeping an eye out for a German Shepherd puppy for me. The Vet Tech suggested that I check out Rescue Me's German Shepherd Rescue. I am so happy I did, and signed up for weekly email notices. My Shepherd/Hound mix that I adopted last June from animal control and Sammy are best friends and playmates already. I also have two older rescued dogs who accepted her immediately... My previous German Shepherds were awesome dogs, and being retired and on a limited income finding Sammy was an answer to my prayers - literally. My home is a furever home, so Sammy will not have to worry about being displaced ever again. Sammy is HOME!!!!

     Lady is now home with her new best friend Sarah, Sarah's two brothers, and two new doggy brothers! Trigger who is her same age, and just as full of energy as she is, and Fetcher who is an old, sweet soul stuck in a 5-year old labs body! I left Lady running crazy with Trigger in her new back yard, slipping in the sprinklers! There was nothing but tons of hugs and kisses to be had. Lady took right to her new friend Sarah without any hesitation at all! Everything went so well that I left their tear-free, and totally comfortable and confident that she has finally found the place she was supposed to be from day one! From a cemetery in Houston, Lady's finally happy, healthy and home! A perfect ending for such a sweet soul!

     I found Chief outside of my office in Opa-locka. He was dehydrated, hungry, and limping. I took him home with me, and it quickly became apparent that he had never seen the inside of a home or known any love at all. He learned commands in no time and followed me around like a cat. I live in a small apartment with another large dog, so I could not keep him forever. None of the no-kill shelters had space for him... Alas, within two days of listing him on Rescue Me!, I was contacted by The Peredas. Not only did they have a huge yard for Chief to call his own, they were extremely experienced with German Shepherds... He now follows Maria around the house and is taking to everyone in the household. Maria reports that the adjustment has been much easier than anybody expected. Thank you so much for the work you do! Without Rescue Me!, this story would have not had a happy ending. You helped give Chief his second chance.
