     We found a wonderful home for Destiny. I emailed John, called his vet and everything just fell into place. John has two other dogs and he researched the dog whisper on how and when to introduce the dogs. He has the most wonderful setup for the dogs. We took Destiny to him and saw the setup. We've kept in contact about how Destiny is responding to her new atmosphere. John loves her and she loves him. I'm so lucky we found a wonderful home for her and it never would have been possible without Rescue Me. Thank you very much! I have no reservations that John is providing a much better home for Destiny than I could have ever provided for her.

     Russel wandered up in the country during the heat of summer. A kind family contacted Saving Whiskers and Tails, a local rescue. We have no shelter so we depend on foster homes. Russel was vetted and remained with his foster family for the next two weeks. A family found him on Rescue Me, and he was EXACTLY what they were looking for to complete their family. Russell went from dumped, hungry, lonely to the center of his new family's attention. They have checked in with us several times. They love him and he is finally at home.

Now he is in his new home with a fenced in yard and plenty of space to play. Thanks, Rescue Me, for connecting him with such good people.

     Bruno is a 11 month old Pit Bull that I posted on Rescue Me one week ago and I found a home for him today. I had a wonderful lady and her husband adopt him. She drove over four hours just to meet him, and fell in love. Over two months ago, Bruno was abandoned by his owner while boarding at my hospital. I have searched high and low for him a good home. Thanks to your website, I was able to find a loving home where he will be neutered, trained and spoiled rotten. Thank you so much!

     I was contacted by a friend about a Pit in need. Rex was in an abusive home that wasn't right for him. The owners were about to put him up on Craiglist for free. In order to keep him from a nasty dog fighter, my wife and I swooped in and picked him up. We already have two dogs, and planned to foster. Rex was perfect... Except for his cat aggression. We fell in love with him and if we could've broken his aggression, we would've kept him. However, someone's grandson found Rex on Rescue Me, and brought him to his grandmother's attention (he lives with her). She had just recently lost her pit of 14 years to old age, and was lonely and wanted to rescue another. Her former Pit was rescued from a shelter, then badly burned in a horrible house fire, but she nursed him back to health and kept him for nine more years after that! Goes to show she loves her animals. So we took Rex for a home visit, he immediately fell in love with the kids, and seemed to make himself at home, so there he stayed. We will be checking on him, but he looks to be in good hands!

     Marli was adopted by a WONDERFUL couple who are so excited to bring her home. It was a total 'meant to be' situation and I am so excited that I am able to add another success story to Rescue Me. Pit Bulls get such a bad rap and everyone is so quick to blame the dog. I am sure I will keep in contact with the adoptive family who is taking Marli and am so thankful for their equal love of the breed. Thank you, Rescue Me!!

     I want to thank Rescue Me for help in getting Keiko Matsui a good home. She was posted for a few days. On the second day, she had two people that wanted her. My friend, Aletha, told me about Rescue Me and I am very glad for her help. Keiko is now in another city, about an hour and a half drive from me. A very nice young family with children came to get her. Aletha has donated to this site because they are fantastic.

     Thanks, Rescue Me. This is Willia. She had been at our pound for a very long time. Several months is a very long time for a dog to be in the pound. We all loved her very much. She was adopted once but brought back because she wasn't a big fan of cats. We kept trying and trying to get someone to open up their home to this beautiful girl. We couldn't find anyone, and it was getting down to the wire for her. The wardens asked us, 'Have you had any interest in her at all?' Unfortunately, we had not. She was put on the paid list, and was scheduled to be put down the following Monday morning at 9:00. At just a little before 9:00 AM, a fellow volunteer received an email from someone wanting to adopt Willia!! She was overjoyed, but also remembered she was supposed to be put down in just a few minutes. So she hurried and called our vet office to ask if she was there and the dog warden had rescheduled! So, I rushed to the pound, and met the lady that wanted to adopt her. Willia fell in love with her. Willia never really connected with anyone there. She was jumping on this lady and licking her face. I couldn't believe it! So, we finalized with her signing a few papers, and she took Willia home. She's doing great! What a miracle!

     I rescued Bailey from a shelter. She was about two years old and sweet as could be; however, I had an older dog at home that just didn't want to be around a playful dog. I wasn't going to take Bailey back to the shelter. I vowed to find Bailey a good home. I made sure I asked a lot of questions and I even wanted to see where Bailey would be living. After several contacts, I came across a wonderful gentleman who had no problem offering any answers to questions I had and I even got to visit the home Bailey was going to live. She is now living with two other male pits who she fell in love with the day she met them. The family that adopted Bailey continue to send me updates about her along with photos. Baileys family was a blessing! And Bailey has brothers whom she can play with daily. Thanks, Rescue Me.

     I posted my grandchildren's Blue Pitbull on Rescue Me not believing I would have any luck finding her a decent home. I was without a place to keep her, and almost out of time knowing I would be having to leave town soon. I was elated when I received a call from a woman that was interested in giving her a home. She and her husband have several Pitbulls, and saw her knowing they had room for one more. Sadie was all wagging when she was united with her new family. They were excited to see her also. They were going to let her stay in the house her first night with them. Thank you so very much for helping me place her with such a good family. Your website was easy to use and easy to post her picture. I will donate to this organization because part of my heart now also has a home.

I almost took him to a so called Pitbull friendly, humane shelter only to find out after they refused my dogs. They said that they would have put them down within the days. My dogs are very friendly, as are a lot of Pits out there. I am so thankful that he found a very good home due to your site. Again, thank you so, so, very much for your help.

     I placed Chevy on the Rescue Me site after his former owner relinquished him to me, and I was no longer able to care for him. I posted a photo I'd taken of him when he was first left to my care, but I did not include my telephone number so I could filter through the responses. I quickly received an email and contacted the individual who lived a few hours away. Although this individual professed to be interested in adopting Chevy, she refused contact after our initial conversation. However, in the interim, I received another email. I reached back out to this individual to let her know Chevy was still available for adoption. We arranged for a meeting, and Chevy was placed with her and her family. We continued to be in touch for the next 10 days as Chevy adjusted to his new home. I feel confident that Chevy is being cared for properly and this site made that possible.

     Rescue Me is very easy to use. I appreciated being able to read little bits about the dogs. I had to put my tri-paw to sleep a few weeks ago. She was a rescue too. My house was too quiet, so I started looking at a few places for rescues not knowing what breed would be next. I absolutely adored a white pit bull with many black spots. After calling the city to make sure pit bulls were allowed, they replied, 'we believe all breeds are great dogs and would never discriminate'. I sent an email to the person with the cute smiling white pit bull. We exchanged information. After some phone calls I got my sister to come take a road trip with me to get this dog. She is more than I expected. I am so lucky to have found her on your site. She is home with me now and she's already learned a command and it's only been two days. She's so smart and I am so happy. Thank you!

     My neighbor had a pit bull on a chain. Her name was Samantha. She was a beautiful dog with a sweet personality. My heart broke every time I went out and saw her, especially through the winter months. I asked them if I could find a home for her. They said that would be great, However, pit bulls have a bad reputation, and I had no luck. I put her on Facebook and had my friends share her picture, but still no takers. I decided to keep her in my backyard until I could find a home for her and get her off that chain. An acquaintance and pit bull advocate told me to put Samantha on a pit bull rescue site. I found Rescue Me, posted some pictures and a brief story about Samantha. I waited for some time, and then one day I went to my email and this lady had messaged me she was interested in her. I could hardly believe it, because she lived five hours away from my town! We talked and she said that she fell in love with Samantha, and she wanted to come and get her. The rest is history. She now has a new home. She will never be on a chain again, and lives inside the home!!! A big thanks to Rescue Me!! I owe a donation!!!

     Bucky came to me because his previous owner couldn't handle his chewing. He had caused hundreds of dollars of damage. She had rescued him when his leg had to be amputated because his first owner didn't want to take him to the vet when he broke his leg. I was fostering this sweet boy, who really just wants to be with his people. He wins over everyone with his gentle and cheerful personality. This dog had some good karma coming his way, because within one week of posting on Rescue Me, I was contacted by a man who is a great fit for Bucky. He works from home, so can allay some of Bucky's anxiety. This man loves Pits, and understands them very well. His previous Pit had a leg amputated from cancer, so he even was familiar with tripods! I couldn't ask for a better home for Bucky. Thank you, Rescue Me!

     I rescued Bruno from a crate half his size where he was covered in his own feces and had cigarette burns on his neck. Bruno's owners wanted to breed him but willingly surrendered him to me. He was terrified of people and starved. I rehabilitated Bruno, then I adopted him out to his 'new family'. Long story short, they dumped him and left him to die. I received a call from the local police department because they did not change Bruno's microchip information. I was devastated. I wanted to keep Bruno for myself, but I already had nine indoor rescues of my own. I posted Bruno on Rescue Me and a couple instantly fell in love. I drove seven hours in one day to take him to his dream home. Thanks, Rescue Me!

After searching for his family on Facebook, we finally located them. They quickly agreed to surrender him to us. They told us of his show dog status and that he was retiring. We're not sure why they didn't want him anymore, but we knew he'd be safe with us. After being neutered, microchipped and vaccinated, Canelo was posted on Rescue Me. We were contacted by a great family shortly after that wanted to give him the retirement home he deserved.

When we met Stephen and Teena, I knew they would love her like I do and they even have a giant yard for her to play in. As we left yesterday to meet them, I wanted to just call them and say nevermind. But I couldn't. I had no where to keep her with me. When she jumped right up into their truck, my heart sank. I told her to behave and to listen and gave her one last pet and she licked my face. I thought I could make it through without crying, but as they drove away the tears started rolling. I miss my baby girl, but she lit up when she met them. I know she'll be happy and well loved. We plan to keep in touch with updates and pictures. Thank you, Rescue Me, for keeping my baby happy!

     I am so thankful for Rescue Me! My office is in a remote area and this pup was abandoned on my land. After only a few hours, a wonderful family has chosen to adopt 'Bolt'! They are driving several hours to pick him up this weekend. I am very excited for Bolt as well as for the seven year old boy that will become his best friend. Thank you Jeff and all for this fantastic website. You are truly a blessing!!

     A friend of mine occasionally gets calls from people desperate to help them find a new home for their Pitbull dogs for different reasons. This is the second time we've used Rescue Me to help re-home a Pitbull. Both times we had at least four people contact us within 24 hours who were interested in adopting the dog we posted with positive results. This is so much easier to get the dogs information out to the public than FB, Twitter, and other social media sites because we can reach so many more people much quicker than other media. The site is very easy to navigate. Thank you Jeff Gold for developing such a wonderful tool to help so many animals in need!

     Thanks Rescue Me for helping me find my baby a forever home. It's heartbreaking knowing he's gone but I'm happy that he was adopted instead of having to give him up to a shelter.

     My Pitbull found a new home. Hurray! I'm so relieved because I could not keep him I felt very bad and this is why it was so very important to me to find a home where people are pet friendly. She got adopted by a family with two children. The most excited person about the adoption was the head of the household, but the rest of the family joined in celebrating the new family member! Thank you very much for a superb job, Rescue Me! Your efforts made it possible. You walked with me through this journey. Honestly, I feel different feelings. I'm elated, and I'm sad having to part with this special animal. She is smart and lovable in every way. Thank you, Rescue Me. You get a ten out of ten from me.

     I found the best home for sweet Max on Rescue Me! I am so happy. I took him to his new home over a week ago and he is adjusting well. After finding out Max had heart worms, I really didn't expect to adopt him, but this wonderful family took him in and they are treating him for the worms. Luckily, her sister is a vet and is helping him with his recently diagnosed medical problems. It's the best feeling to find such a loving home for a dog that was just obviously neglected and left to fend for himself.

     Flo has had a tough life, she was on death row because she was heartworm positive. We funded her treatment through the HeartBeat program and a rescue took her on, but the rescue hit hard times and closed down. We retrieved Flo and posted here on Rescue Me, and she had several applications. Today, she was picked up by her forever family!

     Thank you, Rescue Me. I was moving away and I couldn't take my dog. I got her when she was three months old and just couldn't bare the thought of being without her. But she found a really good home out in the mountains. The couple that adopted my dog seemed like a very nice family that will spoil her rotten.

     Our little Maddie found a new home. It seems like a lot of Pit lovers know about Rescue Me, however, just because they are Pit lovers doesn't always mean they know how to handle a Pit with issues. Thanks for having a site like this for Pit owners and rescuers alike to merge and find good homes.

     I posted my Tess' story on Rescue Me yesterday morning and she found her forever home last night. The young man who took Tess is such a special young man because he is an animal advocate. I am grateful for sites like this because the only other options was placing her in a shelter and then she would have been put to sleep. So again, I thank you all for what you do.

     I was so hesitant to give Nya up. Nya was dumped on my boyfriend and me. Neither of us had time to give her the attention she needed. I posted her on Rescue Me and found someone to adopt her, but my 19 year old son wanted to take her back. That didn't work out due to his school and job internship, so I posted her again. Within two weeks of posting on Rescue Me, Nya went to a GREAT family. Having so many mixed emotions about letting her go (I am an animal lover), Wendy and Morgan, (mom and daughter) made me feel so good about letting her go home with them. I get text messages of pictures of the happy kids and Nya. Thank you Wendy and Morgan for taking her into your loving home and thank you to Rescue Me for having this site so that people like me can find a loving home for pets like Nya.

     The hardest thing that I've ever had to do was find a new home for my wonderful dog, but posting on 'Rescue Me' was by far the best thing I could have done for him. Within three days, I was getting calls and texts from people who saw him on this site and wanted to meet him! We found him a great, loving family with two little boys, which is exactly what we had been praying for. He is an amazing dog and deserves an equally amazing family and that's exactly what we were able to find for him through 'Rescue Me'. Thank you guys so very much!

     I prayed and prayed that I could find a better situation for Bella, not only did I find the Perfect family for her, but they have far exceded my expectations. She found an experienced dog owner who had lost his Rotty to old age. While they had never had pit bulls before, his neighbor kept telling him he should consider one. When he saw Bella's pictures and learned she had been professionally trained and was ready to start enjoying a new owner, he called and I took her right over the meet him. Terry works from his home and was looking for a companion dog. Bella is now with either Terry or his wife, 24-7. She has a fenced in back yard, the run of the house when she is inside and is cherished as an important member of her new owners' family. I couldn't be happier with the results of this site. Thanks a million for all your hard work. -Lisa

     Zeera has not a perfect dog, but for Jayso she is. She was indeed adopted and I did the house check and had a contract filled and signed and she is very happy in her new home. I have posted two dogs on Rescue Me and adopted out both dogs here. 100% success rate. Thank you very much!! I do want to add that after getting to know Zeera, I knew she needed a special family with knowledge of Pit Bulls and I feel that this family qualified. Zeera is the most loving dog I have ever met and she will be the best part of their family.

     THANK YOU SO much, Rescue Me, for all your help. This beautiful Pit pup was left at our shop. We could not keep her because we already had dogs at our shop and the landlord would not allow us to have one more dog. We posted here on your site and found her a LOVING family within a few days. I will inform everyone I know that is looking for an animal to look at your site first. Thank you again!
