     Rescue Me was so very helpful in finding Mongo a great home. I cannot thank you all enough. Mongo was not to greatest at being with other animals, nor strangers and when this awesome couple called me saying they were looking for another shepherd to be friends with their eight month old female Shepherd. I was a little nervous if it would work out. They came down to visit, and Mongo he took to them right away. It was their puppy who took longer to adjust, but within an hour, they were running around the yard playing and having a great time. Even though it was so very hard to give him up and he is part of me, I am so very blessed to have found a great new home for him. He loves running and playing with his new stepsister. Thanks again for everything! -Cheryl

     Magnum was adopted by a wonderful family a little over a week ago. He has three young children that play with him everyday after school. There is someone home almost all the time, so he gets lots of attention. He has a nice backyard and goes on walks in his new neighborhood every morning. Magnum's new family loves him very much and they called him a big teddy bear because he's so cuddly. Thank you, Rescue Me.

     I want to take a second and let everyone know how amazing this website is! I had a German Shepherd who needed a loving home, and if it weren't for Rescue Me, I don't know what we would have done. I received several requests to adopt Mathias. We were able to place him with the perfect family. My children and I are so relieved to know that he will have a loving home for the rest of his life. So, to all those who have helped create this website, thank you from the bottom of my heart!!!

     I posted strays on your site that we were in search of homes for. We had numerous inquiries on many of them from visitors to your website. A forever home was found for one of the pups through posting on your site. Thanks for allowing an easy way to 'get the word out' of dogs in need. I would highly recommend Rescue Me to others.

     This is our first experience with Rescue Me. Wolverine (Wolf) was posted late yesterday afternoon. He was not more than 10 miles from our home. He is a beautiful German Shepard pup and we took him to our vet this morning, and he is going to be just fine with us and our older dog. Thanks for the program.

     Due to a sudden life change, I had to find a home for my dog. Rescue Me was able to help me get exposure to people that were actually able to adopt. I found a good home for him. Thank you so much, Rescue Me. A huge tear jerker here, but you just have to trust. God Bless!

     It has been a new experience for me to be a foster mom to a rescued pet. Lily has been wonderful. She came to me a shy, withdrawn dog and has blossomed into a 70 pound puppy! It has been amazing to watch her learn to play and really stretch those long legs of hers! She is going to a wonderful couple who will treat her like one of their children. She will certainly rule the roost as the only pet in the house! Luckily, I will still get to be 'auntie' to this beautiful, loving dog who was rejected by her original adoptive family. Lily has certainly made my attitude change about fostering other animals in the future. I now look forward to helping other pets find their forever homes one at a time. Thank you, Rescue Me, for posting Lily for me. Without your help, another dog would have been euthanized for no reason. Thank you again. -Aimee

     I am very happy to have found Rescue Me. I received many calls from very nice families interested in adopting my dog. Had I not posted through this site, I would have ended up having to give up my dog to a shelter, which I really couldn't do. The family my dog ended up going to is perfect for my dog and have no doubt he will have a great quality life. I will recommend this site to everyone. I never had any spam calls or negative experiences here.

     Walle came into the local shelter and tested heartworm positive, a result that usually warrants euthanasia. The shelter manager has worked on holding these animals for as long as possible based on the budget hoping a rescue can pull the dog and save it. I found Rescue Me after receiving an email apparently generated from working with Petfinder for this facility. I posted on the site in the past for animals running out of time for adoption and most recently for a heartworm positive, now successfully treated, dog that I decided to treat and foster until a rescue or adopter came forward to take him. When Walle came to the shelter, his disposition was so great that he was worth the effort to see if someone could get him out. His picture was posted less than a week before someone saw him and wanted to adopt him. I had just come from a local vet with a price of $600 to treat him and was sure that he would not get out of the shelter due to the cost. Then someone saw his picture and fell in love with him. He was adopted two days later. Not all of these dogs can be saved, but everyone that makes it out is a good thing. I have already posted the next one and hope the outcome is just as good. Thank you, Rescue Me!

     Gunnarr is the most playful, outgoing, sweet boy. I love the shepherd breed so I was looking at a website that locally sold German Shepherds. From their website, I actually came across Resume Me and I fell in love as soon as I saw his picture. I'm all for rescue and adoptions so I went from there. The woman I spoke with that helped me through the whole process was amazing! They were all so helpful. I drove three hours one way to pick this handsome guy up. When he came running up to me, I knew I made the right decision! I promise to give Gunnarr the best life possible, and nothing less than what he deserves. I promise to fill his life with more love than he'll know what to do with, and to make sure he has nothing less than the best. Thank you all so much for this opportunity!

     Wonderful experience indeed! We had heard through the Facebook grapevine that this beautiful GSD was set to be euthanized very soon. That just wasn't an option. Especially after we met. Our family lives in the wide open country. We have the heart, space, and experience working with and training GSD's. This boy is going to fit in here just fine. Thank you Rescue Me!

     Sadie found a wonderful home! We could not have asked for a better home for her. And crazy enough, she took to the new owner and stuck to her side, like she belonged with her the whole time. While she was a friendly dog, we had never seen her do this prior to anyone, other than her owner. So, this truly was a PERFECT match! She will be living in the lap of luxury and with a truly wonderful woman. Thank you to Rescue Me another wonderful match has happened.

     We have had five German Shepherds in the past and are absolutely in love with the breed because of their loyalty and disposition. We lost our last buddy in 2007. It broke our hearts so bad we had sworn we weren't going to get another, but with time we felt the pull at our heartstrings and began searching casually. This casual search became earnest approximately five months ago. We began looking for a new buddy every evening and feared that our blessing would take far too long for either of us. When we came across a Jade's picture, we immediately knew we had found the one we had been waiting for, and feel that she had been waiting for us too. Our hearts are completely stolen. She is our first female shepherd. We have only been home for about an hour, but she has already made herself right at home. We have truly been blessed. Thank you, Rescue Me.

     I wanted to rescue a German Shepherd. I was all over the place looking at all kinds of sites. When I saw this angel I just fell in love! She is a special needs dog who needed my patience, love and time. She was actually going to be put down if no one rescued her! But thanks to this Rescue Me, I found her and saved her life! She was immediately part of the family and I never leave her side. I am so thankful and blessed to have found my perfect doggie soulmate!

I was so worried about letting her go, but after a bit, I could tell she was very comfortable with him, especially when it was time for him to leave and she jumped right into his truck all ready to go! I think she is happy! Thank you Jake and Rescue Me!

     I posted the information earlier this afternoon and had a call before dinnertime and met the adopted family just moments ago. Thanks to this foundation, we were able to find Murphy a great home with loving people that are going to have the time and space to allow Murphy to live an enjoyable life. Anyone that is able should help donate either time or money to organizations such as this one. Thank you Rescue Me and thank you to Laura, the adopted mother of Murphy. Enjoy your time with him and please give him the life he deserves!

     I filtered through dozens of craigslist requests from questionable people and inexperienced families as well as some families from the Rescue Me site that I knew before taking him to visit he would not be compatible based on numerous factors. I was very picky with what I knew he needed for his new home. I would read an email and go on to the next, then there were two families that were a match. I was in contact with them and it turned out that the first family that we took Bear to visit ended up being the perfect home for him. I was not going to even consider anyone else after going there! The new potential adoptive family noticed differences, yet the similarities in Bear to their male that had passed the previous year. Their female German Shepherd who is a little older was missing her best friend and was their reason for looking to adopt him as he was a bit more mature than starting over with an untrained puppy. Bear warmed right up to their family and the female and he is doing very well adjusting to the new environment and faces. There is even an eight month old female Shepherd puppy next door for him to keep his exercise up and have as another playmate. I don't think I could of found a more loving, deserving family to care for him as I made from this site. I thank Rescue Me for existing so that I was able to get him to his wonderful new family!!

     Rescue Me was great! I met a lovely all female family looking for another loving female to add to their family. We met on several different occasions, both at my home and at theirs. They as well as Snow White loved each other, both were very friendly and affectionate. We met the entire family, went for walks with Snow White, looked through the house to make sure it was in good condition for her. I checked out the backyard area, etc. As much as I miss her I know she is in a good healthy, loving environment. Thanks Rescue Me, and Edwina!

     Finding Judge the perfect forever home seemed impossible. Once I came close to what seemed a great match, then the adopter just stopped emailing me. But I promised Judge he would go to the perfect place or he just wouldn't go anywhere. Judge is that special to me. And just when I almost gave up, I received an email from a very wonderful lady. She and her husband had lost their sixteen year old german shepherd several months ago and were looking for the perfect companion dog to complete their home. She asked all the right questions, had all the right answers, researched the heart worms, talked to her vet about HW treatment. As things progressed she bought Judge his special dog food, two dog sofa beds, various treats and toys. When he and I made the home visit it all fell into place. It is a quiet environment with a lot of space to run around safe, run of the house and two humans who are in awe of his beauty and his sweet personality. It is a perfect fit. He is the center of attention in their world. I miss him so much, the bond was strong between us, but I know he is where he needs to be. Thank you Rescue Me for providing the format to make Judge's story one of such great success.

     We are so happy that our two lovely dogs found a new home. A caring family with two children have opened their home and hearts to our dogs. They have been very supportive in for us a very difficult move and sent us pictures of the dogs in their new home and we can come visit them whenever we are back in town. A big thank you to Rescue Me that helped us find a family that could permit our dogs to stay together.

     I stumbled on to Rescue Me when searching for a German Shepherd rescue site. I had originally rescued Buddy from a local shelter for my brother five years ago. When he unexpectedly passed away, I found myself needing to find Buddy a home once again, as we could not provide the best permanent home for him. Within two hours of posting, I had three or four phone calls! Within 36 hours, I had seven calls and he was picked up on a trail basis. I got tremendous response from posting on this site, which gave me good options to choose a great home for Buddy. Most all of the contacts sounded great, and I wish them all success in finding their 'fur-ever friends'. Rescue Me provided good support, knowledgeable suggestions and an option to donate back the adoption fee, which I was happy to do in order to support their fee-free postings! I keep telling everyone I talk to about the site. Buddy's new family LOVES him! Thank you!!!!

     When our six year old German Shepherd bit a UPS carrier, my wife and I were very upset and resigned to the fact that we should put her down. We live in suburban Omaha and have zero-tolerance for a biting dog. We thought the odds were very slim that anyone would want to adopt a six year old dog with a biting history (just the one time.) Boy were we wrong! The response was tremendous. We received eight inquiries within a matter of a few days, with two-three of them being from good candidates. We ended up getting a call from someone my wife used to work with, and found her a perfect home. Although we're sad to give up our Shepherd, we're happy to know she'll be in a good home. And, we'll be able to visit her if we want. This was a happy ending to a sad start. Thanks to the Rescue Me organization for providing the forum to allow this to happen. - Bernie

     Dear Mr. Gold and Rescue Me: I tried for months to adopt a German Shepherd Dog from my local newspaper ads and came away saddened and disheartened each time. Once I signed up for alerts from Rescue Me, I found my forever fur baby! The staff at Fullmer Menagerie Animal Rescue really wanted the best match for Ronan, and I was really impressed with how thoroughly they checked out my references, animal owner history, and a home check. I needed a dog to train as my Service Dog, who could keep up with my active lifestyle, and who was even good around horses. My beautiful boy, Ronan, fits the bill on ALL levels! From the moment he became mine, he settled right in! I'm so grateful for your group! Thank you for the hard work you do! It is so appreciated!

     We were not able to keep a second animal due to regulations at our living quarters. I am training a 'service' dog for me so Jedda had to be put up for adoption. I AM SO HAPPY for Jedda as I believe, after several interviews, we have found the perfect home for the almost perfect GS. She is a purebred and is very smart. She took to her new family without a hitch. Lynette and family who adopted her had lost their GS several months ago. She emailed me about Jedda's new environment. Chickens, bunnies, four cats, a few birds and lots of space which I saw when I visited for the interview. Rescue Me is a wonderful service and deserve all the good press we the user can provide. Thank you.

     Our wonderful German Shepherd (Biscuit) was having behavioral issues that we no longer could handle. He was having issues with our other dog and this was not the first time. We had been trying to find him the perfect home for about six months before finding Rescue Me and it was the best thing that has ever happened to Biscuit! He now lives with his new momma and is an only 'child'. We thankfully have the privilege to still communicate with his new owner and have even been invited to come see him anytime. We are extremely thankful to have found this site- it was easy to use and made me feel like I was in control of who adopted him! I've already recommended Rescue Me to two people who are trying to find a new home for their fur-babies!

Kyle contacted me, we met, he fell in love with the Fish and I get updates on FaceBook almost everyday. This is the most effective way I have found to post my fosters. I have had interest on every dog I have posted here. Thanks for creating a simple way to connect with adopters.

We placed a posting for Shadow and in less than 24 hours, we had three responses. I know his new family will give him the home and love that he deserves. We wish this gentle giant the best in his new found life! Now let me add this; What a WONDERFUL service Rescue Me provides. After this experience, I couldn't help but donate to this wonderful organization. I encourage all of the readers of this posting to do the same!

     I'm so glad I found Rescue Me to help me find a home for Sundy!! She's a special dog and has been a wonderful companion for me, but since she was always an outside dog at my home out in the country, I really needed to find a new home for her before I move into a small apartment. I got several responses to my post on Rescue Me, including one from a lady who worked with a poodle rescue. Because she took an interest in Sundy, she passed along her information; a wonderful lady with a young German Shepherd got in touch with me to see if Sundy would be a good friend and play fellow for 'Wolfie.' When we got the two of them together, they romped and played and made great friends. After spending some time with them, the lady gave me an update and said 'She's a keeper!' I am SO glad that Sundy found a new home where she will be loved and well taken care of and where she'll have a friend like 'Wolfie.' I'm so grateful this worked out so well!

     I am happy to say, that Reina was adopted today. She found a new home. I prayed that she made it to a home where she finds love and care because she deserves nothing less. And my prayer was answered, thank you Rescue Me for providing me with this great website.

     I posted Talbot on this site only a couple days ago and he has already been adopted. A wonderful couple who has a house and will allow him to continue being an inside dog but have five acres for him to run and play on adopted him today. We all exchanged contact info so we can stay in touch and also visit Talbot. I am so happy with this site, I hope it helps all the other pets needing new homes!! Thank you Rescue Me!!!

     Thank you, Rescue Me. Thanks to this website, I found a wonderful home for Maggie, and the adopter found a new best friend! A wonderful site with great results which enables you to find the perfect home for a pet quickly and easily. I tend to find dumped and stray animals often, and will definitely use this site again. Thanks again!

     Thank you, Rescue Me. A friend told me about Jerry Garcia being available, via A Way for a Stray. My last dog died of cancer, she was a stray a deputy found. I waited until I was ready again, and Lindsey from A Way for a Stray helped me out. I met Jerry last week and got to bring him home on Friday. He is great. I am a song writer and this guy with a music icon's name is a wonderful inspiration and companion.

     Wow. Rescue Me helped me find the most WONDERFUL HOME for my dog within two hours of posting. We all need to spread the word about this site. It is so nice to have a site that owners can post on, so dogs do not have to be returned to the Humane Society and sit in a cage until a new home is found.

     I just wanted to thank Rescue Me for putting the word out that we needed to find a new home for Diablo. With their help, Diablo has found a new home with a forever family. Thanks to them in our hard time of having to give him up we had lots of responses to people wanting Diablo and Diablo seems to be happy with his new family. So thank you for helping us find him a new home. I also wanted to thank the wonderful family that took him and I know they are a good match.

     I needed to find my four year old German Shepard a new home because I was moving out of town. I found out through a friend about Rescue Me and I posted. Within hours, I had people calling and emailing me about King! He has now been adopted by a new family who will enjoy having him. I miss King dearly and I hope he'll be happy with his new home! Thanks, Rescue Me.

     What a wonderful group! For several reasons we needed to find a new home for our GSD. It was heartbreaking to let her go, but the response from so many caring people who wanted to adopt her was overwhelming. She could not have gone to a better home. We are very grateful to Rescue Me.

     I've had more contacts through Rescue Me than any other website. Every foster goes to Rescue Me and every foster gets adopted. It might take a little while, but they get adopted! Tove went to a wonderful home, as an only dog, with a man who absolutely loves her. He goes on walks, hikes and runs with Tove. Exactly what she wanted! Thank you Rescue Me for your wonderful, free website!

     Our new baby in our home is a precious German Shepherd mix. His foster mom, Michell, house broke/trained him quite well and 'Beau' has become best friends with his roommate 'Henry' (German Shepherd/Golden). So thankful for Rescue Me and we tell everyone to go online - adopt locally from your state!

     We are so happy to welcome Tuck into our home. The previous owners wrote an honest, thorough description of their much loved pet, and made every effort to work with us on pet introductions, medical records and delivery. Their cooperation and caring made it possible for this sweet German Shepard to skip any shelter time, leaving much needed space for less fortunate animals. I first saw Tuck on Rescue Me and resolved to either find a home for her, a more desirable place, or adopt her myself. In two short weeks, her intelligence, good nature and desire to please has been essential to merging into our pack. It hasn't been perfect, but with gentle resolve, boundaries and lots of love, we are glad to say we could not have adopted a better dog. Please note Tuck is six years old. She is a seasoned, well trained pet, and positive proof that adopting an older dog can be a huge success in all ways.

     We really didn't want to have to re-home Mae, but she just wasn't comfortable with our small child. Through Rescue Me, we were able to connect with a K-9 trainer. Mae is entering into her new life as a working dog and I sincerely believe that this will fulfill her working needs and give her the quality of life she deserves. We were contacted and worked with the adopter to make the transition smooth for everyone. Of course, tears were shed, but minimized by the fact that we knew she was entering into a great new life. I would absolutely recommend this site as a way to re-home your pet and connect with people that can provide a home that meets their needs. Just remember to please screen your potential adopters carefully and call on references provided. Thank you!

     I wanted to share my story to help encourage others trying to find a home for their pets. I tried everything and had almost given up finding a home for our puppy. I am so thankful that I came across Rescue Me! I found the perfect family for our puppy and couldn't be more pleased. I don't know what I would have done if I hadn't found out about this site. I think it's a wonderful thing that Rescue Me is doing to help people in finding homes for their pets or people looking to adopt. We have a terrible problem with people dumping animals out on us and it just got to where we couldn't afford to feed everyone while trying to take care of our family. I feel really good that I did my very best for our puppy and I couldn't have done it without Rescue Me. Thank you!!

     Our family was looking for a well-mannered, adult dog after having recently lost our husky to cancer. When I saw this doggie's adorable face on the Rescue Me website, I knew I had to meet her. Her foster mom made that very easy. I brought my new dog home the next day, and she loves it here! We go on long walks several times a day. She is so smart and sweet. Thank you, Rescue Me!

     My wife and I met Gypsi today and immediately fell in love. This five year old female was standoffish initially, but she loved to be petted by my wife. Gypsi came from a loving home and it could be observed in her manners. She is a beautiful, alert, and loving GSD. We hope to have her for a long time. Even our black lab took to her immediately. Thanks, Rescue Me, for the opportunity to 'rescue' this beautiful animal.
