     Bruno received five interested parties from Rescue Me website. He has been successfully adopted to a wonderful family with other pets and children. He fit in right from the beginning. Bruno was the last of nine dogs we rescued this year and we had zero success from other sites and rescue groups. Can't say enough about this site and the people who support it.

     It was very hard for us to list our pit bull. Laura is a sweet, loving dog, but had too much energy for us and my aging mother. We tried several avenues over the course of many months, but re-homing a pit bull is hard -- there are so many needy dogs out there. Our listing on Rescue Me got several responses, but none of the homes were a good match at first. But finally we were contacted by a nice couple who needed a playmate for their pit bull. The two dogs hit it off right away, and we could see that we had found a place where Laura would get the exercise and stimulation that we could not give her. We still miss her terribly, but are happy that she has a new, happy home. The website made the contact smooth, and put us in touch with people we could never have met otherwise. Thanks, Rescue Me!

     Rescue Me helped me find the best possible home for Petie! I was surprised how quickly and easily it all happened. The timing was just right. Thank you so much for helping me find a loving home for my beloved dog. She has been my best friend and has added so much comfort and joy to my life during some really chaotic and stressful life events. I'm just so glad to have found her a safe and loving home.

     Rescue Me was a miracle come true! We rescued a pit bull named Lincoln from someone's porch where he lived. He was alone, dirty and malnourished. On Saturday morning at 9:00 am, I posted him on Rescue Me with a picture and by 11:00 we received the call! It is now 3:30 and we're on my way back after delivering him to his new family. They were a perfect match!! I couldn't have asked for anything better. Thank you Rescue Me for the opportunity to bring these guys together!

Romey was adopted by a Petsmart dog trainer who just lost her Pit Bull to old age. She had a soft spot for an old Pittie so it was the perfect fit! Thank you, Rescue Me.

     At first I was hoping that I could find a foster home for Lola, but after a lot of heartbreaking consideration, I decided that she really needed a permanent home and was blessed to find one on Rescue Me. I was contacted by a family not too far from me that had seen Lola's pic and contacted me. It was love at first sight on both ends (new family and Lola). It's only been a couple weeks and while I miss her terribly I know she is where she needs to be. Her current home is perfect for her with kids and cat(s) to play with plus a mom & dad who love her. She has a yard to run in, parents who are very knowledgeable and kind. Knowing she's in a wonderful place, makes the heartache just a little less.

I don't know you personally, but I know he is going to a good home. He took right to you when you got here to pick him up. I know your family will give him lots of love and attention he so deserves. I hope Apollo brings your family as much happiness as he has brought to my family. Thank you again!

     This morning, Big Boy met his new family! Mom, Dad, and two small kids. First child is seven years old and the other child is one year old. He was so good he acted like he grew up with them. This, in a huge way, is how he was raised, because I raised him with nothing but love. And today he is sharing that love with his new family! Thank You Rescue Me!

     Thank you, Rescue Me. Without your website, I doubt I would've found a suitable home for my Sabrina. Some difficult behavior issues, being a pit bull (a breed some view negatively), and that her previous owner turned out to be a breeder who raised out bulls for fighting (though it seems she was solely used for breeding). She is a very sweet girl, but needed to be an only pet and only around older kids. We have two cats, and a one year old granddaughter. Only one person expressed an interest in her. He adopted her inspite of her challenges (he'd had dogs with behavioral issues before). In this case, that one person was all that was needed to find the right home for Sabrina. I'm so grateful.

     Thank you, Rescue Me. Cole found his forever home! He's now a very happy, relaxed, well-adjusted dog! He had some issues at our shelter, and we were kind of concerned that he'd be hard to place. But as you probably very well know, a shelter environment has different effects on different dogs! Cole wasn't happy at the shelter, and he wasn't adjusting well to being here. He was, however, at his best when he could be out with a buddy! And now he has a Pittie sibling to play with, and is thriving in his new home! Congrats to Cole and his new forever family!

     Something about Chesney's picture. I had a connection, I know that may sound weird. Some people have such abilities. I showed my husband his picture and he said, he's nice looking. The fact that he is pit bull mixed, made it difficult to fully agree to adopt him since we have a two year old son. I'm not against any breed. We are lucky to have found a new family member from Rescue Me. I believe it was fate for us to adopt Chesney. It took a week before my husband agreed to see him. He had seen a dog similar to him where we live and said he really does look like a nice dog. I contacted Chesney's owner on a Monday and we went to visit. He connected with us instantly! He's such a wonderful pup!

     We recently adopted Buddy, a three year old Blue Pit. He has been an amazing addition, adding laughter and love to our family. He is such a kind, playful, beautiful dog with no aggressive behavior at all. We have a blind dog in the house and Buddy has been really loving to him. Just truly blessed to have lucked upon Rescue Me. His owner, Rhonda, was amazing, honest, helpful in all possible ways, and was very thorough in making sure Buddy went to a kind, loving home. This has been the best, all around experience I have ever had adopting a pet and I will send everyone I know who is looking this way. Thanks for everything!

     I am extremely satisfied with Rescue Me. I saved this poor puppy today and within hours of posting here, I received several calls and found an excellent family for her in Nashville. This is truly a useful and remarkable site to adopt an animal. I love pit bulls and would do anything to make sure that people understand pits more as a family, loving and loyal breed. This puppy deserved a chance to live and thanks to your site she will live a long and happy life in a loving home in the best and most beautiful state on earth!

     Poor Satchel waited and waited as others got adopted at his former rescue. We listed him on Rescue Me and he found his perfect, forever home. Satchel was a victim of the east coast hurricane that almost wiped the eastern seaboard off the map. With his home and his family gone Satchel had given up hope till he was found locked in the garage of what was left of his family home. Moved to NYC, the poor boy looked and looked for his family. They never came. As the days came and went, so did Satchels hope of finding his family. We come upon him at his former rescue and fell head over heals for this big lover. We took him home to the country and he fell in love, But living in a foster home was not the same as his own. Satchel watched as others came into the rescue and left without so much as a look. We found Rescue Me and started using it simple and so easy to navigate. A family contacted us and the rest is rescue history. Satchel is in love with his new family and doing so well. Thank you Rescue Me for helping us find the perfect family for our hunk of love Satchel. Much love the unchained love gang.

     I want to thank Jeff Gold and Rescue Me for the great work that they do in helping to find animals (especially Pit Bulls) a home. My Pit Bull, King, was adopted by a young college student who decided he needed to have man's best friend sharing the college experience with him. This worked out perfectly for King, my family, and me. I wanted to make sure that King had a home with someone who had as much energy as he does. Thank you!

     Rescue Me was a wonderful way to advertise the urgency in getting my son's pit bull rescued. No shelter wanted to even give me the time of day and other rescues were full, leaving this poor, sweet, innocent, one of a kind pit bull in danger of being put down. The person who responded to my post has a wonderful, loving home that will let my son's dog live out many years left of love he had to give. I can now rest knowing he was found by a wonderful person who also has a lot of love to give him back. I couldn't be more pleased with the outcome and can't thank Rescue Me enough for allowing me to tell his story. The new pet parent will never truly know how much her being rescued means to me.

     Zeus is a great puppy. He is almost two years old. We rescued him from a friend of a friend. Zeus was being left outside and neglected due to a recent divorce in a family. We took him in, made sure he was healthy and built up his strength. Although loved, we could not keep him in our home, so I posted his information yesterday morning on Rescue Me and by late evening, I got a response from a sweet man. I hadn't even posted a picture and he wanted Zeus. We texted and spoke this morning, got to know each other. He has raised pit bulls and other large dogs his whole life. Now he wanted to replace his dog who passed away after a long 13 years. Zeus was perfect for him. Zeus is loving, playful and will be a perfect fit for his family. The man was so loving already and I feel confident that Zeus will be happy in his new home!! Thank you Rescue Me for making what I hope will be a perfect match for Zeus and his new family!

     I would really like to thank you for Rescue Me's assistance in finding a wonderful home for my dog. I received lots of great emails from people wanting to see my dog and, thanks to Rescue Me, I did find a wonderful home for my dog with a real nice couple. It is nice to know that there are other people out here who love animals, even pit bulls. People really need to realize that it is not the dog breed, but the owners of such breeds that create bad or negative ideas about them. In owning this dog I fell in love with her and her personality. Please consider a pit bull, since they are a loving breed of dog to own. Thank you.

     This Pit pup was left tied to the fence in my yard six weeks ago. No one knew who left her or why they picked me to dump their dog on. We took her in and named her Emma. She's a typical Pit puppy under six months old- very, very hyper and super lovable. Unfortunately, between my 12 year old Golden Retriever and my kids, Emma was just too wild for our home. I was faced with having to take her to an animal shelter where I feared would lead to her being put down within a few weeks. I posted her on Rescue Me. Within four days, I had a very nice family come to meet her and take her home. I didn't want to just list the dog on Craigslist or dump her at the pound. She is an adorable girl who needed a chance and she got it.

     Memee was adopted!!!!! Yay. I am so happy; she found a home where we least expected. MY 47 year old sister, who has never had a dog,came to visit and stay with me for two weeks after she suffered a stroke. The next day, I had to go and pick up Memee from a boarding place. I have been boarding Memee for close to a year. I had to due to my working hours and two other dogs I have. So, that day when I brought Memee home, my sister and her met and it was so funny. Memee kept following her around the house and even wanted to sleep with her!. My sister accepted her and you won't believe how they bonded like glue! Oh my! They both played, slept and were together those two weeks. When it was time for my sister to leave, I was so surprised to hear when she said, 'I want Memee to come with me!'. She wanted to keep her! I was so happy and somewhat worried due to her sickness, but I went ahead and made arrangements and they both left. I was just down there a week ago and visit with both. I am so happy to report that this bond is stronger than ever!!!! Don't give up with your dogs being adopted...when you least expect a miracle..it will happen!!!!! Thanks also to Rescue Me.

After spending almost two hours with the puppies, he finally decided on Coco (although it was a close match between Shaggy and Coco).

     It's so sad at the bad rap that the Pit Bull's get. I have four and I can't imagine coming home to a house without them. They are my very best friends and are such good dogs. Sasha was eight months old when we had to make the decision to let her go. I had postings on a few different sites and talked to numerous people before I found what I think is going to be a great fit for her. She is going to a home with two kids who fell in love with her the moment they laid eyes on her. I have no doubt that she will make them just as happy as she has made us. Thanks, Rescue Me!

     After two or three days, I got a phone call from someone six hours away. They were the sweetest people and were looking for a pitbull just like Cisco. We made arrangements for them to come down and see Cisco. They came down and took Cisco home with them. For them, the long ride was worth it. They love him and are great pitbull parents. Only the Lord could match up a pitbull over such a distance with the help of Rescue Me! Thanks so much!

     Claire, the sweet Pit Bull, came into our rescue with another dog as a neglect case. She had to have an emergency surgery done on her dewclaws, because they were growing into the pads of her feet. This girl needed a lot of love and rehabilitation when she was healed up from this. For starters, she played very rough, didn't get along with other dogs except the one she came in with, and didn't do well with cats. She stayed in a kennel for a good six months while we worked on some of this. During this time, she had no prospects at all for adoption...not even an inquiry. She then went to live with our dog trainer. There, he worked on her issues with small animals and other dogs more. Still, no one wanted poor Claire. Then, finally, one day an email came through from this very site asking about Claire. The gentleman wanted to meet her! He came out to meet Claire and fell in love. Today, Claire is a trucker with a short distance truck driver, seeing what most dogs can not even imagine. She is with her owner ALL the time! If it was not for Rescue Me, I am sure that Claire would not be adopted yet. So, a HUGE thank you, from all of us and a wonderful Pit Bull named Claire!

     Hi, Jeff! I did find Lyah a new home through your website. She is in an awesome place, where people love her and take care of her. There is a little girl that she plays with constantly! They let me email them to see how she is doing. I know she is in a good home, but I still miss her a lot! She is a very good dog, and I wish her the best in her new home. Thank you for letting me post her on your Rescue Me website! This is a good place to find a home for your beloved pet. Thank you again!!

     Missy has a new home. She was rescued from going to a kill shelter only 30 minutes before I was going to be forced to take her there. I am very grateful for the Rescue Me website. I got so many responses so quickly, and my post was only up for a few days. Thank you, Jeff Gold!

     I posted a beautiful blue Pit mix puppy that I rescued from my abusive neighbors. He was only a month and a half old, scared, hungry, and very thirsty. He had been kept in a rabbit cage without food, (hytf (~~He typed that while walking on my iPad.) water, or shade in 90 degree plus heat. With three very high energy dogs of our own, we sadly could not keep him, but we refused to let him stay in those conditions. I didn't know what to do with him, and after putting out an SOS call on Facebook, none of my friends could take him either. I found Rescue Me and was blown away by how great this site is. I posted his photo, and within minutes I had received emails from wonderful people telling me that they were interested in taking 'Grody'. Well, within one day, he found a new, fabulous, loving, forever home. I cannot express enough gratitude for Jeff and his vision (RescueMe.org), as well as the many other projects he is involved in. It is people like him, and people like the ones I got emails from, that make this world a better place. I am so, so happy that this pup, who had a pretty rough start in life, with the help of Rescue Me will grow up happy, healthy, and loved - the way he and every other creature deserves to be loved. ;)

     We are very happy with our new family member. He loves walks twice a day and sometimes three times a day. He is full of energy. We plan on some dog training classes. We would love to keep you updated on his new life. If I could, I would adopt many pit bulls, because it is our favorite breed.

     Today, I was able to accomplish a goal for any pet lover: adoption. The process and family that I went through were very positive and helpful. Sasha is going to be loved and very well taken care of. She is a very, very special friend of our family, and we hope that she stays as excited as we are. Thank you kindly for your services.

     Good day! My puppies all got very loving homes. They were taken by their new owners to the vet on the first day for their vaccinations, and I believe they will be very happy!

     Hello! I adopted Stereo from a nice family last Sunday, and I am so glad I did. He is getting along well with all of the members of my family, especially the kids, who make sure he is groomed every day. He loves it!! He is very well behaved, and everyone is amazed at how friendly he is. I am so glad that I found the Rescue Me site, and I highly recommend it for anyone looking for a dog. This is a better option than buying from a puppy mill or backyard breeder. Before you buy, please consider giving a sweet rescue dog another chance at having a family. I did, and we are so happy. A special thanks to the wonderful family who took such good care of him and loved him so much!!


Sender: Joshua Melendez     Date: April 18, 2014 _
     Yes, my beautiful, sweet pup was adopted by a wonderful pair of women who loved him at first sight. We introduced him to them for a few hours, and he loved them as well. Thank you for all your help!

     Annie was adopted at an adoption event. Annie appeared to recognize the people so they must have reminded her of someone she cared about. She was very eager to be with them. They are a mature couple, who has had experience with the breed, and they have a safe home which will allow her to run within a fenced area. Very happy with this match!

     We got to add this little guy to our happy family thanks to Rescue Me! I heard about Rescue Me from a close friend and set up an account to notify me when a pit bull is up for adoption and because of that, we get to take home this sweet little guy! I love what this website does for dogs in need of a home.

     California was left with us by someone who didn't take very good care of her but we couldn't keep her due to our living situation. Our Cali girl was adopted by a lovely couple with two kids and another pit bull. I have received updates and pictures and she is adjusting very well to her new home. We couldn't be happier that she finally found a permanent home.

     We posted Montana's photo and information on Tuesday, and the following day I got two responses. I went with the lady that I spoke with, she sounded very sincere and capable of giving Montana the life that we can't provide for her at this time. I'm confident that she'll love her new home. I'm so happy that I found Rescue Me! I will make a future donation and will definitely tell others about adopting a pet that needs a good home. Thank you so much again!

     My new name is Carby. I can't really remember my old name so my foster-dog-mother named me after the street she found me on. After a ride in the car, I went to a different house with another dog. I think everyone should know that Rescue Me! is a great website. Gotta run, just heard the food bowl drop!

     Most people that are pit bull owners know what it feels like to have their dog discriminated against because of its breed. But also get the benefit of having one of the most loyal dogs that was ever made! Jackson is one of the best! I was told after a year and a half of being at my apartment I was no longer allowed to keep Jackson because he was considered a pitbull breed. Just packing up and moving was easier said than done. I just started Paiton in kindergarten, I didn't have the finances to move right away and they gave me a deadline. I looked for months to find him a new place to go and then heard about the website Rescue Me! By far the best thing could have happened to my family at this specific time in need. I couldn't believe how easy and quick it was within 3 days I had several people asking about Jackson, on the 5th day I had a family coming to see him for the first time, on the 7th day said our good byes. I took Jackson to his new home. A wonderful family of four that also had another dog! Jacks couldn't be happier! Thanks so much to his new Family! *Jackson we love you so much* Most of all thank you Jeff, words couldn't express what you have done for more than just me by creating Rescue Me!

     Within hours of posting Reece on Rescue Me!, I received an email inquiring about him. We met two days later. I could not have found a more loving, caring home for my dog! The woman that responded to my post was just as much an animal lover as I! They seemed to be off to a great start before I even left him at his new home. His new family made the transition as easy on him as possible. As soon as I met her I knew she was the right fit for Reece. There is now a bond between two families that is very special! We will continue to communicate and she is even going to send pictures as he grows. A very positive experience! I would recommend this website to anyone who needs to find a home for their pit! Thank you so much!

     I was saddened to find Rosco had been chained around the neck so tight that he could hardly breath! I was very glad that I was able to rescue him, and he jumped right into the car. He now runs on a fenced half an acre with my other pit, and sleeps in the house. Because he was not worked with before, we are now working on manners, house breaking and the basics. He is eager to please. I can't wait for the head halter and lead that I ordered to arrive so we can work on walking.

     Chopper and his 'sissie' have gone to a wonderful family about an hour away. They are now living on a 20-acre horse ranch and are thoroughly enjoying it. I miss them but their new family is keeping in contact with me about their adventures. Thanks so much to Rescue Me! I was so afraid I was going to have to take them to the shelter. Chopper had been through a hard life before I got him. He was used as a bait dog in fights at only 10-weeks old. So you could imagine how bad it was before we got him. My husband died last August and I'm having to move. I couldn't take him or his 'sissie' but Rescue Me! was there, not only for them but for me as well. I would have felt so guilty if I would've had to take them to the shelter but now I feel they both got the home they deserve. Thank you Rescue Me! and thank you Chopper and Karma's new family.
