     I was fostering a dog for the local animal shelter. It was the first time I was fostering and adopting out on my own, rather than through a rescue group. I posted on Petfinder and was not hearing anything about this dog I thought would likely be adopted fairly quickly. I posted on Craigslist as well and someone contacted me through Craigslist and suggested that I post on Rescue Me. I did just a day or two ago and today I have had three inquiries for the dog and she has been adopted! Awesome! Thank you Rescue Me!

     Thank you RESCUE ME and Paws and Stars Pet Rescue for helping me adopt Miss Amber. I had been getting regular email alerts from Rescue Me and looking for sometime. When I saw Amber, I just knew she was the one. The whole process was easy and now I have a great little Chihuahua! This was a great experience and I encourage others to look into saving a sweet rescue, they show their gratitude. A big THANK YOU also to the professional rescue women at Paws and Stars for their tireless and selfless devotion to finding these rescues new homes.

     I found a loving family for my little guy. I can't say enough good things about this family. Biggie seemed to fit right in, with the mom, Tonya, and he acted so relaxed in the home, as though it was his. I was so worried, but seeing him interact with Tonya, her little guy, and the house, I was put at ease immediately, knowing I made the right choice for Biggie. I have to say, all that responded were caring people, but this family just jumped out at me. Instead of leaving heavy hearted, I left knowing he was gonna be just fine. I wish that for all the pets and their owners. I got lucky, and so did Biggie. Thanks, Rescue Me.

     Chica has been adopted by a wonderful family that meets all her needs. It was a dream come true when I was recently contacted by a woman with a huge heart who drove 90 miles to come and adopt her. She has a lot of land and two little fur friends for her to play with. Couldn't ask for a more perfect family for her. Thank you, Rescue Me.

     A wonderful Angel needed a companion to take the place of her last companion that went to the doggie rainbow bridge, she almost wasn't able to adopt him due to her landlord being concerned about a new carpet and was going to make her pay a large pet deposit. I informed her he was potty trained didn't even like to go potty in his pen so no worries. The next day she says yes, I 'CAN' adopt Scruffy hooray cause a week before he got beat up by my other dogs, his wounds healed but I was really concerned for his safety. So I met her half-way from where she lives and now he is very happy and spoiled. She loves him and gave him kisses when she picked him up. She is a wonderful woman. Thank you, Rescue Me, for helping him get a forever home

     He is such a cutie, I saved him from being euthanized and had him transported just to foster till he found a new forever home. Today was that day. As he walked up to them wagging his tail, so happy to see them, it was a yes, right off the bat. He seemed like the right fit, as William's wife Joy stays home all day and her dog was put to sleep at 13 years old and I am sure she was lonely. So, this worked out great and Buddy now found his forever home. So happy I saved him; look what this became- a happy ending for him and his new family.

     It was amazing, I received a message within an hour of posting the need for a home for Nila on Rescue Me. She went to her forever home the very next day and gained two brothers and a sister and her very own door to the house. A very lovely woman was thrilled to receive her.

     I saw the post for Lucy and Maggie on Rescue Me, both seniors, who needed a new home after their family situation had changed. I emailed with their 'grandmother' and saw the photos and pretty much fell in love. They're very timid and shy right now, but opening up nicely, and they are beautiful girls... A wonderful addition to our brood.

     Our story is rather odd. I was sitting in the hospital room with my terminally ill husband and thinking that I should find a companion for my Theodore since he would now be alone while I was at work. Since he is a Corgi, I went to Rescue Me and selected the Corgi icon. Kale was listed as a Corgi mix. The picture made it obvious he had been accidentally listed on the wrong page. Having been terrorized by an unpleasant neighbor's nasty Chihuahua as a very young child, I have always disliked the breed. But one look at that face, and the fact he'd been waiting so long for a forever home, I lost my heart. He is sweet, smart and a champion cuddler. I believe there was a reason he was put on the wrong page for me to find because he is exactly what we needed. Theodore and I adore him. My husband passed on New Year's Eve and Kaleb has eased the pain of the huge hole in our hearts.

He is settling into my home with my other dogs and cats and his previous owner is so glad I have him.

     She is my every minute shadow. This baby was undernourished and weighted only four pounds. She was saved by another animal lover that called me, upon hearing her story. I went to pick her up . I have three other rescued Chihuahuas all neutered and spayed. Miss Ruby will see the vet tomorrow for a complete check up. She is just wonderful. And when we get her weight back on her, she will be beautiful. Miss Ruby loves her freedom she has a fenced area that she can access any time by doggie door. Miss Ruby is now in her forever home.

     Hello Jeff, I am truly grateful to you for founding Rescue Me! I was recently forced to put my two Chihuahuas up for adoption due to moving. This was a very difficult decision to make and carry out. It's amazing that a little Chihuahua could bring a grown man to tears. I was fortunate that my groomer had a client that took my male dog. I was worried that Lilly may not be as easy. I was wrong, a wonderful young lady called me about Lilly. After many texts, I brought Lilly to her home to meet. I think it was love at first sight. I feel very lucky that my two dogs have found wonderful people to love them. Thanks Again, Walter

     I just wanted to let you know that our 'Little Man' was adopted by a family. We had several calls within days of our posting. A family came over to our house to see the dog and they fell in love with him immediately. We brought Little Man to their home the next day to see how he got along with their son and another older Chihuahua the family currently had. Everything went great and we left Little Man with them for a few days to test the water so to speak. We received text messages and photos from the other family that night showing our Little Man settling in just fine. After several days we checked back in with the new family and they were so appreciative of us for allowing them to our give Little Man a new home. I have given the Rescue Me website to several other friends I know who were looking to adopt pets. The website and organization work great, thank you so much for helping us find a new house for a stray dog we had taken in.

     Received a call from a 12 year old girl, who wanted Preston for her brother for a present. She said her brother's Chihuahua had died. Told her I needed to talk to her mom and she gave me her mothers work phone number. Found out from her mom that she was her foster daughter, who she will be adopting. And her brother is with his foster family but coming to visit for three days. This little girl has such a love for animals, she wants to be a vet one day. I met this sweet family and hope Preston will be as happy as they were to get him. Thank you, Rescue Me.

     We found our little guy Max on Rescue Me. Neither my husband or myself considered us to be small dog people, but we have always adopted/rescued dogs throughout our lives. Max has brought us such joy in the time we have had him, he is smart, feisty and fiercely protective, especially of my husband who is home with him all day. We have found that he has enriched us in more ways than we could have anticipated. Although he most definitely is a bed hog (lol), and there is not a blanket in the house that he has not taken over as HIS. There is no way we would give up this little one. He is my husbands 'heart dog' to say the least. I encourage anyone who is looking for another addition or even a first addition to their family to look first on Rescue Me! In fact, I tell anyone and everyone to go here if they cannot find a dog at their local shelter. Thank you so much Jeff Gold for having this wonderful resource, you are the animals and our angel.

     Harv found his forever home with a marvelous family! They recently lost one of their chee-wa's. The companion dog, Pumpkin, was feeling lonely. Harv is the perfect match for her! Thank you to Rescue Me. I appreciate the service immensely and will recommend it to anyone who is faced with the heartbreaking challenge of finding a new home for a beloved pet they cannot keep. I'm still teary-eyed after having to let him go, but I know he is so happy right now with his wonderful new family.

     All attempts to find the owner of 'Chica' have failed. We are unable to keep this sweet dog because we have two other dogs already. One of the responses we received from a viewer stated that her family has been looking for a companion for their Chihuahua and if we didn't find the owner of Chica she would be interested in adopting the dog. We met at our home. She brought her dog and her daughter to be sure everyone would get along. All went well and she adopted 'Chica'. We have received messages from her since that time that they are all very happy. We're so glad we were able to rescue Chica from traffic and that she now has a forever loving home. Thank you, Rescue Me for your service.

I was there when she was adopted and am confident she found the perfect forever home.

     I wanted to let you know about a man named Ray who lives in another state, over four hours away! He called me about Hank because he was heartbroken at having recently lost the dog love of his life after only seven years together. There was something about Hank that gave Ray reason to hope he could find a new dog to love and cherish. I never knew how Hank came to be at our shelter, but in the process of the adoption, I learned that he had been surrendered by his owner just before being admitted to hospice. It seemed so fitting they were coming together to fill the holes in one another's lives with new love and devotion. It was an honor to help bring these two together through Rescue Me. Thank you so much for providing this resource!

     Who could resist the infectious happy smile of Rusty? I received many inquiries from people interested in adopting Rusty, this precious ChiPin for whom my brother had to relinquish because his health issues didn't allow him to spend enough time with Rusty. So, after I neutered, vetted, chipped, socialized, and taught him to walk on a leash, he was ready for a forever home. Within days of posting his picture and bio, I began receiving calls. Then, one day a man called who had recently lost his 14 year old Chi due to health issues. He said he hadn't planned on getting another dog so soon after he lost his Chi, but when he saw a Rusty's picture on Rescue Me, he changed his mind. After he met Rusty, there was no turning back. Now Rusty lives with a semi-retired couple who work from home. They adore him, walk him every morning, and spoil him with love and attention. He even has a playmate named Toby. Thank you, Rescue Me for providing a place where people can either find a new pet, or find a home for a pet.

     Tinker Bell was adopted by a wonderful lady, a pet groomer. She is so good to little Tink. She took in little Banshee last month, but could not get Banshee to play or open up. The Banshee just sulked or lay in her bed. So Stephanie got in touch with me and told me the problem. I immediately knew that Banshee was missing her playmate, little Tink. They had been inseparable 'cohorts in crime', into everything and always the non-stop wrestle and play. So she took in little thing too, and immediately Banshee came to life. Now they run and play again, non-stop, bonded buddies for life. And you should see little Banshee with the black wire hair. Now she sports a purple mohawk style- so cute. The two girls have a wonderful home with Stephanie and her family. Thank you so much Stephanie and Rescue Me.

     This was a miracle. I had two days for Coco to find a home or I had to take him to the pound due to a change in my living situation. I had been praying that someone, somewhere, would see him and fall in love with him. At the end of the second day, I was getting depressed and very sad. I started calling all the local animal shelters and was told that they were all full and that if I brought him in he would most probably be put down. Then at the last minute, I received a call and it was a little old lady not far from us. She had seen his add on Rescue Me and was willing to come and see him. Coco warmed up to her right away and now he has a good home, a yard to run in, and three cats to be friends with. This is a miracle. God loves dogs too. Thank you, Rescue Me, you helped save my loving friend. I can not tell you how much this means. I pray that God blesses this site so many more pets will have a chance to live just as my little buddy did.

     Hello! I was able to find a forever family for my cute, little Chihuahua Chick, Madisen. She is in the perfect home. Her new, forever family has a male Chihuahua that she has bonded with very well. She also lives with cats, which she enjoys chasing. The new, forever family keeps in touch with me and says that she is very happy, she loves her so much and that she is such a joy to have around.

They were so kind, and although lived over 200 miles from me, they brought her all the way to me. Daisy is a wonderful little dog, has adjusted fast, loves to cuddle and is a great little companion. I just love her. Thank you, Rescue Me.

     I am so thankful for Rescue Me. My two babies, George and Lopez, found their forever home and the best part of the difficult decision to give them up is they were able to stay together. I am so thankful for the couple that took them. They have been so good with keeping me up to date on how they are doing! If you are looking to adopt, I wouldn't recommend any other site. Thank you so much!

     I was wanting to rescue another Chihuahua of a certain size and age range. I was not having good luck with rescue societies, and private kennels. So I turned in this direction and found what I needed with much less hassle. It was better to go directly to Tiny's owner, and work with them. Thank you, Rescue Me.

     Mocha found her new home where she met her two Chihuahua brothers, Sid and Hoppy. The three of them bonded very quickly and just loved running around their back yard. The best part is the snuggling the three of them do with their new mother, Shelly. Mocha has two new brothers to play with, and a new mom who is so excited to add a new Chihuahua to her family! Thank you, Rescue Me.

     My mother is 92 and was no longer able to take care of Buddy, the Chihuahua she had had for 13 years. She is living with my sister and brother-in-law and would constantly bark at my brother-in-law. Both my mother and siblings didn't think Buddy would survive a transition to another family, but I felt different about it. We brought Buddy to our house (even though our poodle hates him) and posted him on Rescue Me. It took a little while before calls came in about Buddy. People so caring about what he was going through and we found a couple who had Chihuahuas just like him. He is now getting comfortable in his new home. Thank you very much for your website.

     Ozzy was a very special case - he is a stress-filled, little, anxiety biter. He really needed some special people to come forward for him that would take the TIME with him to develop a trusting relationship. THAT happened thanks to having Ozzy posted here on Rescue Me. THANK SO MUCH.

     When my family lost our house and was forced into an apartment, all we could think of was how could we keep our four Chihuahuas happy in such a different environment than they were used to? It turned out that our biggest obstacle wasn't space, but the apartment rules that said we could only have two pets. How do you choose which pet to uproot and how do you find a new home for your baby? I was scared at the idea of taking them to the pound for fear they would not be adopted and put to sleep, but then a friend of mine mentioned Rescue Me! I'm so thankful that through this wonderful site I found loving parents who will cherish my babies as much as we did! It made all the difference in the world to have such a great option as this website.

     I used this website to find a foster / eventual permanent home for my Mom's Chihuahua, 'Bitsey'. My Mom has brain cancer and is in and out of the hospital a lot. Bitsey has never been alone and was just miserable when she was. She grew up with another Chihuahua and cats and my Mom. Now she was the only one left. In desperation, I went online and found Rescue Me, made a post and... I can't believe how many responses I got, it was amazing!!! In my haste to post I left out many details and when I got responses, I disclosed all the little details and... Everyone still wanted to help us. I found a wonderful family just 15 minutes away. My friend and I went to their house and dropped her off, as my Mom is back in the hospital , and when we got back in the car to leave we just could not stop talking about how great they were! I never thought I would get so many wonderful people to respond to my plea and I want to thank each and every one of them from the bottom of my heart. This is an awesome website I am so grateful to have found it and I will be making a donation in my mother's and Bitsey's name.

     Yes---this dog was adopted after one day of being on the Rescue Me website. I was really surprised at how quickly I got a response. I was trying to find a home for a small dog whose master died of old age. I believe I got three responses on the first day the dog was on the site. I only wanted to find a good home for the dog, and I believe that happened with the help of your website. Thank you. Mark

     We found a starving little Chihuahua on the road near our home. After much research, we had to assume the sweet little girl was abandoned. After posting information on your Rescue Me site, we received calls and emails from more than a dozen people anxious to adopt her. My husband and I were touched by all the willingness to pour love on this poor little thing. She's on her way to her new home now. Thank you for the help!

     I had been watching Boris on the Rescue Me website for several weeks after reading his story. I finally responded with an email, only to find out that he had been taken to the Denver Dumb Friends League a few days prior to my response. My heart sank, and I felt a real urgency to find him. Somehow I got a hold of the director of operations, on his cell phone, in his car on the way to work. Although I think I shocked him, he was very kind and listened to my plea to find Boris. After about 30 minutes, he called me back and confirmed that Boris had been left at the Quebec shelter and that he had actually put a 'HOLD' on him for me! Another gal named Jenny also contacted me to confirm that Boris was being held for me until I could get to Denver to get him. She was wonderful to keep me updated, and we kept in touch until the day my husband and I made the trip down there to pick him up. Also, the previous owner and I have kept in touch by emailing each other, and they know that Boris has a forever loving home with us. He has been a complete joy, and we love him as if he were our child! He also has two brothers named 'Carlos' and 'Emilio', our Chihuahuas (also rescued), and they are all very happy together!! We are very blessed to have Boris as an addition to our little family.

     After many attempts to find Marky Mark's original owners, I thought my only other option was to bring him to the animal shelter. This decision was heart breaking for me, since I had grown so attached to him in a matter of hours, but due to my constant traveling for work, it wasn't fair to Marky Mark. However, before taking him to the shelter, I decided to look online to see if there were any rescue places for Chihuahuas. Sure enough, I found this amazing site that was the answer to my prayers! Marky Mark was found on this site by a lovely woman with a Chihuahua of her own. The two quickly became best buds and are living happily ever after! Thank you for saving the lives of these precious little creatures!

     Thanks to Rescue Me for having a website that introduced us to Lillie (soon to be Roxie). We lost our Chihuahua, Dixie, last August, and it broke our hearts. We said we would never have another one -- but never say NEVER! We decided as retirees that Roxie would help heal the loss and give us another 12 or more years of love, devotion, companionship, and fun. Alma was a delight to talk to and work with, and she even helped by meeting us at a closer location. We are excited to meet our new addition to the family tomorrow!

     Brutus found his forever home! His new parents drove all the way from NC! I just knew when I found this little guy that I could not let him down. He is so small and under nourished, but the spark in his eye just gave me chill bumps to no end! I found him a home within two days. I had great inquiries from many distances. Brutus needed a home with parents experienced with Chi's. I found that he needed extra teeth removed, had tartar build up, and needed other important parts looked into too. But, his forever home - with the help from this website - made it happen! BLESS the LORD for RESCUE ME! Brutus is with a 4 legged sibling now, Lucy, who needs him as much as he needs her! What an amazing couple in NC to love him and comfort him and give him the treatment, love, and holding he needs to gain back the faith and security in loving people. I could not have this peace of mind without this site. I just knew that the direction I was led in - Rescue Me - did in fact rescue Brutus! I have heard from the new owners already and wait patiently for healthy, happy pictures of progress from his loving new home! Thank you!

     We are traveling to Long Island to Precious Paws Rescue to rescue our second chihuahua Frankie (Isaac). We found him on Rescue Me, which is the same site where we found our Zoey. We adopted her from Precious Paws as well. We had to say good bye to our French Bulldog (Rocco), and our family was no longer complete. We felt the girls needed a little boy to keep them company and found Frankie on Rescue Me while looking for our next family member. One look at his face, and with Rocco's blessing from above, we contacted Precious Paws to make arrangements to bring Frankie home. Thank you so much for all you do. Your efforts and compassion are greatly admired and appreciated. You've made our family complete!
