     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!

Another lady and her daughter drove three hours to adopt little Chloe (brindle puppy). We are so grateful to you and the wonderful folks that open their hearts to share their love and homes with all the animals. Thank you so much for the service you provide to us all and for helping us find suitable homes and owners. Sincerely, Annette

     I tried for weeks to find this poor guy a home. I had saved him from euthanasia after being told he passed his temperament tests and would be good with other animals, which was vital as we already had furry family members. After organizing his travel, it seemed like everything was great, he was safe and we had a new family member. He was still an angel with people, but a killer towards the smaller and fuzzy. After contacting over twenty rescues and shelters, only one said they'd take him, and they told me if he walked in, he would never walk out. As a last resort, I posted him online, and there we have our success story. Through Rescue Me, we found him a forever home with a lovely lady, her kids, and a fenced backyard.


Sender: Linda Miconi     Date: March 30, 2015 _
     Thank you, Rescue Me. He did find a home, though his owner never came forward. I had a few families interested in him. A wonderful family with three children took him. He took instantly to the 12 year old boy. He wasn't afraid. He was the sweetest dog you could ever imagine. I just wish people saw Pits as wonderful and loving animals. We just hear so much bad, not the good. I would have loved to have kept him, but I have four girls, and I just couldn't keep him. This was a great, happy ending for such a wonderful boy. I know that twelve year old and him will be best buds. Thank you so much for your unconditional love of these animals. We sure could use a few lessons from animals for the way they love even different species. Let us love each other and treat our dogs and cats as they treat us. Sincerely, Linda

     I love the Pit Bull Rescue Me site! You provide such a valuable service linking people with people to find the perfect homes for all the beautiful doggies!! Puppy Folen was adopted today by a wonderful family. Lisa is a vet tech from another county with a 16 year old daughter. It was love at first sight for the daughter according to her mom, Lisa. They drove from two counties away to adopt our little puppy, Folen, and I am extremely grateful she went to a loving responsible home. Bless you Rescue Me for the resource you provide. Without this site, it would be very difficult for pet owners to connect. Thanks! Annette

     Thanks to Rescue Me, Hercules has found a great home! He was found a few months ago near starvation. We fattened him up and got him through the cold winter and in the process fell in love with him. However, we only let him in when it was very cold and he was lonely. He would sit and stare in the window at me and usually fall asleep sitting up. He was such a deserving dog and I truly wanted him to have a home where he could snuggle inside all the time. I posted him on the Rescue Me site and the next day got a call. A very nice lady had a dog the same breed as Hercules that she wanted a companion for. He is now inside and plays all the time with his new friend. I cried when he left but I couldn't be happier for him and his new family!

     Thank you, Rescue Me. We had Blue Mamma here for months. She has many skin tags, lymphoma in chest and under arm, rash from a skin allergy and had another fatty tumor removed from the leg. She has a great vibe, quite spirited and just joyful! She has ridden in the parade, had a photo shoot done and all we can to spread the love we have for her! A woman inquired about her, the woman stated she was retiring soon and really looking for a Pit to give love and strive to be a Goodwill Ambassador for the breed. She enrolled Mamma in clicker training classes and hopes to give Mamma a real chance to be all she can be! I personally can not wait to hear the updates!

     After fostering my Bella for six months, she had a run in with another dog. I was given thirteen days to find her a forever home. I was skeptical about posting on Rescue Me-but never again. Bella was adopted within three days to her new daddy. After spending almost two days with him I swear they were meant to be together from the very beginning. I highly recommend this site. Without it, Bella would have been euthanized. He saved her as much as she did him. I can't express in words how grateful I am for this site and can never repay you for saving a pup who spent her entire life in a puppy mill and lived her entire life in a basement with very little human or animal interaction except for breeding purposes. Through your site, she now has a perfect forever home. Thank you so much and God bless all of you for caring so much about these babies.

     As you would probably guess, I started receiving messages the day after I posted on this site. I contacted the first family that contacted me and spoke to the father of four who recently lost their family Boston Terrier. After hearing him tell me how his family fell in love with Candy at first sight, I had a feeling she had found a new home. The whole family drove two hours to meet her and Candy greeted them at the door with licks and tail wags. It was love at first sight there too. I confident that they will provide her a loving and happy home. Thanks again for taking care of her! Thanks to all who contacted me about adopting Candy. I truly apologize to those who I spoke to and also really wanted to adopt her. Please continue looking here on Rescue Me. I'm sure you will find the right dog for your family!

     After posting our 'foster' dog, Roxie, here a local dog daycare saw it and shared it with their Facebook friends. We immediately got calls about her and were able to place her in a loving home with another dog that looks like she could be her mom. The initial went amazingly well and her new owner already loves having her as a part of his family. We are so happy that Rescue Me helped us find her a forever home and will recommend it to anyone looking for a dog or that wants a safe way to adopt one out.

     Thank you, Rescue Me. Sadie found a home with a volunteer who loves pit bulls.


Sender: Julie Dragnett     Date: February 23, 2015 _
     Dixie was an important part of our lives. We rescued her from the SPCA where she was covered in white marks like scars and quite afraid of everything, obviously, previously abused. My family loved and nurtured her. She is the most loving, dear pet anyone could ask for. My college student children graduated, my husband's job began taking him on long distance trips. I then took a job that required travel. Poor Dixie was staying with her boarding family more than her own, so we decided to look for another loving home for her. Someone with the time to devote that she deserved. We tried to find the right fit for over a year, posting through my vet and various other avenues. But since pit bulls have such an unwarranted reputation, I had no luck finding a proper place for her. Shortly after posting Dixie on the Rescue Me site, she found a loving family to give her the time and wonderful home she deserves. It was so hard to see her go, but we are so happy knowing she is in such a great environment and is loved as a part of her new family. She just moved on to bless another family with her sweet and happy companionship. To anyone considering adopting a pit bull, know that in my experience in a lifetime of pets and farm life, pit bulls are the most loving, nurturing companions you could hope for. Look at Dixie with our rescue kitten- she nurtured him like her own! There aren't many bad dogs, just bad owners that make them that way. Thank you Rescue Me!

     I posted two of my foster dogs on Rescue Me. It was easy and productive. My Pittie teenager was adopted by the family that contacted me through Rescue Me. I had several inquiries on her almost immediately (she is awfully cute:). I still have another puppy posted, a lab/terrier, and I'll be posting my next Pittie foster as soon as this one finds her family. Very happy and appreciate the service.

     Riley walked into our lives about two years ago. We were not looking for a dog at the time, but were told that he wouldn't have much of a chance at a shelter. We opened our hearts and our home to this playful pup and got back ten fold love and companionship. Our family grew very attached, but we also knew Riley needed regular exercise, that we didn't have time to give. We are thankful and grateful to God and Rescue Me for finding Riley a new home with acres of land to exercise on. Thank you for making this match made in heaven!

     We have been using Rescue Me for almost 10 months and I must say, WOW! Our success rate for adoptions have gone thru the roof. We may have to travel to meet potential adopters, but we don't mind as long as we find the perfect family for our babies. Since joining Rescue Me, we have found perfect forever homes for 17 of our babies. Now I know that may not seem like a world changing to some, but to us every life is worth saving. We have had Mallory in our rescue for two years and she goes to the adoption event after adoption event, Last week we got and email from Eric M and his wonderful family wanting to adopt Mallory sight unseen. Of course we could not do that. Application and home visit along with reference checks had to be done. As soon as they were approved, we set out to meet them. When we arrived they were waiting and as soon as we pulled up their daughter got out and waited for us to get Mallory out. It was love at first sight for them both. Mallory loves kids, but when she meets her, she almost pulled my arm off trying to give her kisses. She pretty much ignored the mom and dad and just loved on her new sister. After a few hours we started to leave and Mallory looked at us and then jumped in their car to start her new life. Thank you rescue me for this wonderful platform and because of you. Mallory is in her perfect forever home with a new mom, dad and the love of her life (her sister). We can't thank you enough.

     Today, I was looking on the internet to adopt a Pit Bull puppy. However, I didn't know that I was going to fall in love with a blue nose young Pit. I contacted the owner who had him and she instantly contacted me back. Karen is her name and she is one sweet lady. She met with me today so I could adopt Buddy from her. We took Buddy home this evening. He is the sweetest dog I could ever possibly adopt. If it wasn't for Rescue Me, I would've never found Buddy and I would've never been this happy. Thank you to the caring people out there. Adopt don't shop.

     Little Bit was adopted by a wonderful family! We had a couple of families interested in her. This family welcomed her with open arms and she now loves snuggling and hanging out with her new brother and family. She has a big back yard to run and play in and a warm bed to sleep in and parents to spoil her rotten! We posted her information on several rescue sites and Rescue Me was the one that brought us the most viable leads. I will definitely post rescue dogs here again in the future.

     She had been taken from the shelter twice and brought back. She startled easily and wasn't too crazy about my other dog. She wasn't overly fond of people either. I trained her to do some basic things. Mostly I just gave her a lot of TLC. She calmed down considerably and my neighbor said she was amazed at the change. But it wasn't enough. I found a man who said he wanted her. A couple of months later, a mutual friend said she was sweet and friendly and seemed to be very happy in her new one dog home. Thank you, Jesus! I can always count on you to help me with placing and rescuing dogs! Thank you, Rescue Me. Hannah

     Thank you, Rescue Me. Bree has successfully been adopted to a great loving family. She always won your heart over when you met her. She ended up in a new foster home when her foster Mom got sick and was rushed to the hospital. Bree's second foster Mom and daughters fell in love with her. They asked the rescue if fosters are allowed to adopt. We of course said yes!!! Bree has a wonderful loving home she shares with two cats who they actually get along. She has a family who truly adores her and most of all she is not a princess in the home as she should be. We are so happy for Bree and her new family.

     My spouse and I adopted a blue and white female American Pit Bull Terrier through Rescue Me. Her name is Crissy. She weighed 41.6 pounds when we adopted her she has gained 10 pounds in 11 days. House training is going great and our 90 pound Pit Bull boy, Buddy, is in love with her. He even shares his toys and he has never shared his toys with any of our dogs. Crissy loves our Maltese girl dog. She fit in quickly to our household of two dogs, a gecko, 18 year old granddaughter and two adults. -Chuck and Mary

     At first I was pretty skeptical of the possibility of a successful adoption, keeping them together, or even anyone interested enough to get hold of me. It seemed to me that there were just so many dogs for adoption and my having so little background information on these two, how would they stand out? It was in fact that same day I received my first phone call from a gentleman very interested. Stating he and his wife were wanting another dog, but really wanted to. Their concerns were in finding two that would get along. This was very much a perfect timing situation, or rather, fate. We arranged a meeting where the girls could be their happy selves and it was practically love at first sight. I am every bit as grateful to and for this couple, I will not name, as they are to me and for the girls. I am sad to see them go, but overjoyed they will be given the attention, time, and life they deserve. Thank you both. And thank you Rescue Me.

And when I get the chance and the opportunity to donate, I am going to support Jeff Gold in the future! Thank You for finding Sasha her forever home! Sasha is going to make her new family happy to be with her, and visa versa!

     Rescue Me has been very helpful in finding our Brutus a home. Within a week of posting a gentleman emailed me to tell me he was very interested in our dog Brutus. He saw his picture on your site and fell in love. They met at my sister's home and fell in love with him and adopted him. He has had him two days and they are doing very well. He has a home with a fenced in yard. That is what he needed. Thank you again Rescue Me for finding our Brutus a loving and caring home.

     The pit mix that we rescued was adopted! It took several days for someone to call, but he seemed very excited about her and asked lots of questions. We took her to his home and met his family. MJ went right to them and seemed very content. We have called a couple of times to check on her and the family even invited us to stop by again if we were in the area. Thanks for helping us get this sweet girl a forever home!

     We had two responses for Bubba, a two year old stray that we took in. The first family to visit fell in love with him and Bubba returned the favor. If it wasn't for the Rescue Me Site, Bubba would still have had a good home with us (and two other dogs and four cats) but now he has a great family home without having a competition for his love. Keep up the good work.

     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 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!

     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.

     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!

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.
