     We just adopted our beautiful girl, Bella (thanks to this website!) from a family who unfortunately could not keep her anymore. They actually got her a year ago from an animal shelter and although she's understandably nervous, she is coping well with her new family. We have three other dogs and she drives the Westie nuts by running interference when he tries to run for his tennis ball!!! I was looking to get a Border Collie puppy, but when I saw the picture of her on this website and knew we would be in the area in a few days, we had to go see her. We took the Westie to meet her and they got on great immediately. Me? Well, she growled and barked loudly to 'protect' her house for us, but the wagging tail was a giveaway!!!! As I type this, she's under my office table by my side. It's us that feels very fortunate to have found Bella!!! Thank you Jeff for hosting this site and all the work you have done. I hope my little donation will help. Thanks again, Rescue Me.

     Wow! Within three days, someone was emailing with an interest in Kai. Now in less than seven days, she has been adopted and living in her new home with her new family. What a blessing the Rescue Me site has been. In a week's time, I have posted two rescue dogs and they are both in their Furever homes with amazing families. Thank you Rescue Me, you are AWESOME!

     We have been looking for a Border Collie for some time, but are very glad that we waited for Taylor. She blended right into our lives and is a very happy girl, learned our walking paths within a few days and has us wrapped around her little freckled toes! We all look forward to spending our lives together, thanks to Rescue Me for making this possible!

     Wow. I found a wonderful home for Miss Abbey on Rescue Me. A retired couple found Abbey on this site. They are fabulous! I thought Abbey had a good life with me. She now has a home where they are home all the time, she has a lab mix to play with and a huge yard filled with squirrels. She is very happy. Her new owners have left me a message already. She was also adopted so fast. Thank you again!

     We had just lost our Lucky our friend and buddy to cancer. Then our grandson was visiting us and he talked my wife to look on Rescue Me. They saw Alex and I saw him so I called the owner. We passed the approval and drove almost 200 miles to see Alex. He liked us and we liked him so now Alex is a member of our family.

     Bella was rescued from a kill shelter. When she arrived following an eleven hour truck ride in a cage, she was scared, thin and dehydrated and had undergone surgery only the day before. My home turned out to be a second foster home for her where Bella began learning how to enjoy a toy and romp in a backyard. She warmed up quickly to her temporary home enjoying two square meals a day and the opportunity to sleep beside her mom and dad at night. Rescue Me was the avenue by which Bella found a forever home with a wonderful couple who has had lots of experience with high energy Border Collies. At last check she has settled into a life of fun and leisure...sprinkled with lots of love. My thanks to your website for helping to give Bella a renewed chance for happiness.

     Thank you Rescue Me! One month after we rescued a sweet, high-energy girl who needed lots of time and attention, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. The prognosis is excellent, but the process would be months and we wouldn't have the time to spend working with our doggie. We also did not have a lot of time to find her a new home before chemo started. I found the Rescue Me website, posted, and within two days we had offers from two different, absolutely wonderful homes whose references were excellent. Her new family drove six hours to pick her up one day, and back the next and she is so happy in her new home. Not only that, but they are sending us updates and have offered to let us bring our kids to visit her next time we are in their town. Thank you so much for facilitating this beautiful adoption. We could not be happier!

     I've been searching for a new home for Lexi. She was posted to a variety of websites. I inspected three homes (with the third being the charm), all of which came in through Rescue Me. I found the responses to largely be excellent candidates who would take wonderful care of her and provide her with ample love and attention. Thank you for getting the good word out. I couldn't be more pleased with her final home. It will be my pleasure to make a donation.

     I am so pleased with Rescue Me. Mylah has been adopted. I am grateful for her new parents who came to see her, played with her a bit and was even more pleased to see Mylah accepting them. She is a wonderful little girl and deserves the best life she can be given. I feel confident that with her new parents, she will receive all the care and love every dog deserves. Thank you all for making this possible and giving Mylah and all other animals a second chance.

     Bailey is in a transition period. She is very nervous with change of any kind. We not only found the perfect home for her, but also a kind hearted new owner who is willing to take the time to adopt her so that Bailey can get used to her new surroundings. We are actually doing play dates for about two weeks so that she is totally comfortable with the transition into her new home. This is the best of both worlds for Bailey, she can take time getting used to her new family and pulling away from her old family. She will have room to run and farm animals to play with! Who could ask for more? I am so glad that we posted her on Rescue Me.

     We adopted Bella and we couldn't be happier with her! She is such a sweet, smart girl, and has already bonded with everyone in the family, even Grandma and Grandpa. We were told that she was an outside dog, but we brought her inside right away, and she was thrilled. She is great with our two kids and is thriving on their love and attention. We are looking forward to having her as a part of our family for years to come! Thanks, Rescue Me!

     Mason arrived on Saturday. She is an incredibly sweet girl who wants to please. My 15 year old Abby Louise, who is blind, actually was barking at Mason to play. My little princess even gave her a kiss on the nose on the first day. We have done a lot of fostering, and usually it takes a few weeks for our little one to give kisses. Needless to say Mason is a keeper, and she came potty trained, and crate trained too.

     I was desperate to adopt out two dogs, Bonnie and Clyde. I put both of their profiles on Rescue Me. Within two weeks, I had a response to Bonnie's post, and soon the adoption was complete. She went to an absolutely FANTASTIC new home, and the BEST PART, was that Bonnie's adoptor, Kim, also agreed to take Clyde as well!!! Can't thank Rescue Me enough! By the way, a REALLY GOOD photo, with a digital camera, made the difference for Bonnie!!! Kim noticed her right away!! THANK YOU!!!

     Bonnie is a gorgeous, super smart Border Collie-Siberian Husky mix, rescued from the streets. She narrowly missed getting killed in traffic on the street where she was found. I was unable to keep her because I was over the dog limit in the city. Only two weeks (!!!!) after posting her picture on Rescue Me, her and her doggie friend Clyde, were BOTH adopted by an amazing woman who will treat them as if they were her children! Kim will give them the ultimate BEST FOREVER home for them, as her current dogs are 12, 13, and 14 years old!! She takes her dogs running in the mountains and the desert!! This will be perfect, especially for Bonnie, who needs a really really active home!!!! I'm super thrilled, and can't thank Rescue Me enough. These dogs would have had to go to the shelter if it weren't for Rescue Me. It WAS A PERFECT FIT FOR BOTH THE DOGS AND THE ADOPTER!!!!!! Yeah!!!!! BY THE WAY: a REALLY great picture is a HUGE help to get your special doggy placed quickly!! Bonnie and Clyde had had digital pictures taken, which helped immensely!

     Thank you, Rescue Me. I found my four year old Border Collie, Danny, a wonderful home. A loving, sweet couple who have nine acres and another dog that Danny has become buddies with. They are really active people who have horses, goats and a miniature Donkey. I feel blessed to have found them and although I miss and love Danny very much, I feel happy that he is in a better situation with room to be a Border Collie. They are going to take Danny in agility and I know he will LOVE it!

     Rescue Me has been an excellent source to work with. We posted Carly for adoption and had several great responses and with us doing the work of screening and reference checking we choose a family that she fits perfectly in. We loved having the ability to screen and talk with the potential owner and choose who we thought she was the best fit for and build a relationship with her new family. Thank you Rescue Me for providing a free service and supporting finding our fur babies homes!

     Minnie found a new home within days of posting here on Rescue Me. Her new owners said they were drawn to her post because she looked so much like their Border Collie, Christmas, that had passed recently. After reading her review and seeing that she had the same anxiety issues as their Christmas, they knew they had to meet her. I met up with them within a few days as they were traveling for their granddaughter's graduation. Minnie went to Brenda right away. She was a little skittish of her husband and son, but once they knelt down to her, she warmed up to them in minutes. We visited for about an hour going over her quirks, likes, dislikes, etc. They wanted her! We loaded her up in their SUV with all her goodies and I gave my Minnie a good-bye kiss. Minnie has gone to a 'fur' ever home where she will get 24/7 attention and have the run of the house! I'm very blessed to have found such a wonderful family for her. It would not have been possible without this website.

     My dogs Keisha and Cubby passed away this past Fall after almost 16 years. I miss them so and wasn't sure I was ready to get another dog. While sitting at my computer one day, I did a search for rescue dogs and came upon 'Rescue Me'. I was quickly impressed with the way the website itself was set up. As I scrolled through the pictures, I saw a sweet little female dog named Allanah, that looked so much like my Keisha. I thought long and hard about calling to inquire. A week later, I called the number and set up a time to go meet the dog. As soon as I saw her, I knew I had to have her. She came home with me and my nieces and a friend that day. I am so happy to have her in my life. I am so thankful to Cheryl at the shelter that cared for her. I am thankful that her life was spared and that my husband and I have been given a chance to give love and receive love from this beautiful little doll. Thank you to Rescue Me for all that you do to find loving homes for all of the furry children.

     Rescue Me made it possible for me to find a great home for a dog who needed to be the number one dog in his own family. My family already had two dogs and Chance was always competing for first place attention and was never satisfied. His new country home has a family of four smiling faces, who were waiting for his arrival with his new collar with name and phone number, a fenced backyard, food waiting, and acres to roam around his new home. Now I am able to devote a better level of attention to my other two dogs so they do not feel neglected. Life has become much better for all of us. Thanks for the great website to bring dog lovers together and make life better for our devoted and faithful friends.

     Hello Jeff, I cannot thank Rescue Me enough for finding me a Border Collie in a very short time. I had checked on other sites without any success. Your organization kept sending me updates weekly and we saw Lola. We adopted her from a great family. She is bonding with my wife and I, more and more every day. Thank you and your organization for a wonderful companion.

Thanks to Rescue Me!, I was able to find Riley a loving home. I enjoyed his company for the first part of his life and now the new adoptive family will enjoy his company for the rest of his life! I love you my sweet boy and always will. You will always have a special place in mommy's heart. I hope you like your new family as much as I do and I can only hope they will love you as much as I do.

Zoe now will be able to visit with Debs mom and dad who live next door they share 5 acres of land and Zoe will have the run of the land. This was such an amazing answer to prayer.

     Within two days of posting this pup, I was in contact with someone interested in him. I was so relieved because otherwise he would have been put to sleep. She took him on a trial basis and decided to keep him. He will now get the chance to live for as long as his pain is managed, which could be a year or much longer. I am so grateful to Rescue Me! because it would have broken my heart to put down such a sweet puppy.

     Today we dropped off our beloved Border Collie, Finnegan at his new home.

Knowing he will be living out his life chasing water fowl on the beach with new best friends softens the heartache. Thank you Rescue Me! for providing the platform to make this loving connection.

     Patches was brought into the pound as a stray. She was found by Second Chance Rescue and sent to me as a possible foster. I accepted, as she only had a matter of days to find some way out before they euthanized her. She made the trip out to me, and stayed a while. Apartment living with three dogs was tough, but this beautiful baby was saved and that's what counts. She now has a home of her own, with her sister Cayenne and father Al. She was only days away from her impending doom, and is now in a home that will be hers.

     I am so glad we found Rescue Me! We found this dog a month ago, and the last thing I wanted to do was take him to the pound. Within just a few hours of posting his picture on Rescue Me!, he found a new home. I hope he gets lots of love, and would like it if the new owner would keep us updated on how he's doing. I have to admit we got a little attached to him in that month of him being here.

     Maggie was adopted today by a wonderful family. Maggie was rescued twice, the first time from a badly abusive home, then again after the second owners couldn't keep her. She stayed with me and my family for six months as I looked for a forever home for her. Then, a week ago, I found the Rescue Me! website and posted Maggie. I had three inquiries about her, and after talking to the last family I felt that they were the best for Maggie. My sons were sad to see Maggie go but know that she will be loved and cared for the way she needs to be. Thank you, Rescue Me!, for helping me find the perfect family for this special girl.

     Buddy, the Border Collie who was dumped out near my place in the country, has found a new great home! His new owner fell for him first thing when he saw his post on Rescue Me! He said he'd been looking for one exactly like Buddy for quite awhile. He and his wife met me halfway and took the lucky dog home with them. I'm retired and not able to keep him; he deserved a better home than I could offer, so he has that now. He can run free, help with the livestock, and give doggy kisses to the ones who now love him and will care for him. Thank you so much for your help with finding him a home.

     Patches has a great success story. He was found wandering at a paper plant. One of the workers felt for him and tried to make him a family member. The man has an older dog that would not accept Patches. So poor baby was displaced yet again. We took Patches in and posted him on Rescue Me! We stated Patches needed a job. Within days of posting he had an offer. Come to Kansas and herd 700 to 800 head of Holstein cattle and a family to love him. Complete with grandchildren. Thanks to a nice truck driver headed that way, Patches had the 14 hour ride he needed to his new job and family. He is now in a loving home. Thanks for creating such a wonderful web site!

     My border collie was adopted just a week ago using Rescue Me! He is very happy with an active 'nest buddy'. It took awhile but a home was found just 150 miles away. Thanks to Rescue Me! for keeping my post open. This resource is valuable in finding just the RIGHT home. I recommend this site to anyone who has an animal for adoption. Thanks again. Kay

     Dear Jeff, the service was great. I placed a post in the middle of the night Monday and I received an email from someone early the next morning. Saffron was adopted that same day to a wonderful family who are willing to have me visit her anytime. They also have sent me pictures, and it looks like Saffron is adapting well to her new family. Rescue Me! came to my rescue during a time of crisis and I would recommend you highly. Thank you!

     Our Border Collie was a adopted on March 8th. I talked to different people through email and telephone calls. I am happy with the results of Rescue Me! I am so glad that our dog went to someone who I felt was a really good match for her, and she was adopted and did not have to go to the shelter and possibly be put to sleep. I know that she will be so much happier there as she settles in. I will miss her but knowing that she is in a much better place with people who will really love her will give me the peace of mind I need in letting her go.

     Praying about the decision to rehome Buster was difficult. Our family loves him and he loves us, but he didn't have a job to do (besides herd my kiddos around the yard). While he didn't have any major bad habits, it just became apparent to us he needed more space to run and a job to do. I posted Buster on Rescue Me! because I wanted him to have a home just right for his breed. A few days ago, I received an email from a very nice lady who seemed to fall in love with Buster's picture and bio. We spoke on the phone and made plans to meet. Buster related to her and her husband right away, and this couple seemed perfect for Buster, plus 25 acres to run around!!! I had a wonderful feeling about this couple and felt Buster would be very well loved and cared for. We waved goodbye with cheerful faces and had our little tears afterward, but knowing Buster is happy and in a good family is a great comfort! I hope to stay in touch and see some pictures soon. If things do not work out there, the plan is to bring Buster home and I will try again, but I really do not think I will need to do this. Thank you, Rescue Me! This site made a difficult process very positive!

     Daisy Rose was left in our neighborhood. We brought her into our family with Gabbe, a miniature Schnauzer and Sophie, a toy Manchester. We immediately fell in love, but knew Daisy Rose was just visiting. We posted her story on your web site and prayed. Daisy Rose was adopted by a wonderful young man, just graduated from college and had always wanted a Border Collie. We knew he was the one, and our answer to prayer. She is going to be loved and will have a perfect home. She will always have a special place in our hearts. Thank you, Rescue Me!

     I think Rescue Me is great!!! Thank you so much for allowing me to post my dog's picture on there. It did help me because someone wonderful, Elaine Wilson- searched and found a foster home for my dog Bear to go to; however, when Elaine called me we had decided to keep Bear and just make it work. He was not the problem WE were. He is so loving and sweet. So eager to please, we could see he was trying and we were not trying hard enough. My husband and I cannot live without him. He deserves the best we can give him. Our schedules are changing but we will make it work. Thank you for being there for us and BEAR... This website is a great set up. I love that it is helping so many dogs find a home. We plan to make a donation as soon as we can.

     I posted my dog on Rescue Me... I found him a new home in another state! They just sent me a picture of him in his new home and I could not be happier! I was at a loss of how to find a new home for my dog (he had been in my family for 6 years). We love our dog but with the kids getting older he was not getting the care or attention he needed. I was afraid I was going to have to have him put down because I didn't think I could find a home for him. I am so glad I found this site! Now we are all happy!! Thank you Rescue Me!

     Hi Jeff, Just a quick thank you so very much for allowing me to use your website to find Princess a good home. During the three months I had Princess posted with you I received several good contacts asking for additional information. Although the family who adopted Princess did not contact me through RescueMe.Org, I so appreciate you providing this valuable tool for matching homeless little animals with loving families. I thank you for your loving spirit and your recognition that all it takes to save an animal is humans working together. Sincerely, Ann

     We would really like to thank Rescue Me and Border Collie Rescue for getting Cooper the perfect forever home he deserved. In less than 24 hours after posting, we had 2 different calls from very interested people. We had a couple who were willing to fly down to St. Petersburg from Tennessee to take him home, but we found the perfect fit for Cooper right here in the Tampa Bay area. We're very sad to part with him, but feel so happy for him knowing that he will be really loved and have a great home! Thanks again.

     Within an hour of posting on RescueMe.Org, I received and email from a wonderful retired couple regarding my Border Collie 'Buddy'. After exchanging multiple emails over several hours, we arranged for them to come and visit. Until you meet someone face to face, you never know someone, but the instant we met I knew we had found Buddy's new 'forever home'. They instantly fell in love with Buddy and their two granddaughters were just patting the fur right off of him, and he seemed comfortable around them too. They gave us some time alone to say goodbye and promised they would stay in touch. Within a couple of hours we got a couple of emails showing us Buddy's new home and some pics of him relaxing. We couldn't have asked for anything more in making this process any easier for us or Buddy. I would recommend this site to anyone looking to rescue or find a new home for a family member. I just hope they have the same success as we did.

     Thank you so much Rescue Me :) AmpAngel had went to a awesome home with 2 young boys & there mom I'm so delighted to have found a site where so many people look at pooches that can be adopted :) I have heard that she is very happy & still having to adjust. I think it is only because I treat my pooches with such unconditional love that it is hard for an pooch to adjust to anyone else. It so happens that AmpAngel has been my last pooch I well ever have to put up for adoption as I truly got attached to her & I can't go through adopting out anymore pooches. Thank you so much Recue Me. I have recommended your site to many others. I can only pray all pouches find awesome homes like Amp Angel did. God Bless

     Maggie has found a wonderful home with a lovely couple! I know she will be very happy...The couple drove over to Livingston to meet us and fell in love with Maggie. She was adopted the very next day after I posted her on the Rescue Me site. I have been trying to find her a good home for 2 years but was very apprehensive about it. After talking to Dave on the phone I felt a little at ease and felt like he was truly a DOG PERSON...some people claim to be but are not! Thank You 'Rescue Me' and A Big Heart felt Thanks to Dave and Kathy! (3

     Several people were interested in Maggie. Unfortunately after several e-mails and appointments to come out to see her, no one showed up. This happened at least 6 times. Not sure why? So we reconsidered. We love Maggie. Our Lab that she didn't get along with, unfortunately passed away on Fathers day. We had her cremated and buried her under HER apple tree. Why should we have to give up such a sweet dog. Now Maggie is here to stay. My husband who was never wild about dogs, loves her. She still isn't good on walking with a leash but, we throw her many toys around, she chases them and is getting lots of exercise. She loves being an only dog and is definitely thriving. Sometimes we have to give someone a second chance. I'm glad we gave one to Maggie Phyllis & Howard Karl
