     When I posted Lolly-pop on Rescue Me and they said that I would probably start receiving messages from interested people within a day I said Pshhhh! But I did! Lolly was only online for a few days before she was able to go to a new amazing Mommy. I couldn't be happier with Lolly's new situation. Lolly's mommy sends me pictures and updates. She asked if we could do a 'open adoption', where I could see Lolly on holidays. I am so grateful for Rescue Me for helping us find each other. Thank you, Rescue Me!

     I had so many people wanting to adopt her. I saved her from being euthanized and paid to have her transported. I then had her fully vetted, never make a dime, just for the love of the dogs. My Rescue Me post stated, 'must have fenced yard'. She was the type to run off and I had to make sure she had the right home with a fence and a kid. She LOVES KIDS. Finally, the perfect home came to her after two months. She was looking for a Chi for her son. She had a fenced in yard, and another playmate for her to play with, which was all too good. When we met them, Missy ran right up to the little boy who is eight years old and she did not leave his side. Danny was in love with her. It was a big win for Missy! She found that perfect forever home. Thanks to the adopters and thanks to Jeff Gold for this fabulous site helping to find the dogs in need good homes. HAPPY TAILS, MISSY!

     So many wonderful people responded so quickly. Thank you Rescue Me. I am blessed there are so many good dog lovers out there. Thank you all for responding. Gizmo was adopted by a great, caring and loving couple. It broke my heart to see him go after 11 years, but I saw him happy and being with a new family. I will always remember today and I am thankful for Rescue Me!

     I adopted a tiny Chi-Weenie puppy through Rescue Me and everything went nice and smooth. They ask questions that I would want answers to myself if roles were reversed. I know that I have many years to look forward to with my puppy but when the time comes I will use Rescue Me again and will recommend the site to friends and family. Thank you Rescue Me!

     I love this website. Regularly, I find strays and foster them until they are healthy and happy. My 'go-to' website is Rescue Me. Both dogs I posted in 2015 were adopted out within 10 days or less to great homes. I am still getting updates from their new families. I tell everyone looking to adopt or looking for a home for a pet to use this site. Keep up the good work.

     Buddy was adopted by a fabulous couple who had three other little Chihuahuas that had also been adopted from our Humane Society. Buddy was almost identical to one that had been adopted previously. All four are now best friends and love snuggling together on the sofa. Thanks to Rescue Me for helping Buddy find the home he deserved.

     Oreo went to a great home with a stay at home wife who just wanted a 'fur baby' to keep her company. She has the time to give him that he so deserves. We miss him, but are happy that he is in the right place for him now. It took me a year to find the right fit for him, but that was at no fault of Rescue Me, that was me doing some heavy screening of folks who inquired about him. Thank you Rescue Me! You're an amazing resource!

     I want to thank Rescue Me for the wonderful work they do to help dogs find forever homes and helping us humans to find forever furbaby companions. We lost our Gizmo and have not been able to find him. We are still looking for him and have placed flyers, posted notices on many web pages, had Dogs Finding Dogs out tracking for him, among other things. During this time, I joined Rescue Me and thought about adopting. I thought someone either had taken our Gizmo or someone found him and wanted to keep him for their own. The first time I saw the picture of JD (sometime after midnight) that Ericka posted, I fell in love with him and immediately sent her an email. We spoke later that day after playing phone tag a few times. From the moment we starting talking it just felt right, we had a lot of things in common. My Gizmo and their JD did a lot of the same things and even his name we all had in common. Once we meet Ericka, her husband, Al, and JD at our home yesterday, it was as if they had brought Gizmo home. OMG, they are a beautiful couple who are expecting twins and JD is just as lovable and playful as can be. He has made himself right at home, lives to give kisses, especially this morning, and loves playing with his toys. And he just loved sleeping in the bed with his new daddy last night. Thank you again, Ericka, Al, and Rescue Me!

     Rescue Me did an amazing job with helping us find a furever home for Max. We are so thankful. We began receiving emails and phone calls almost immediately after posting him, and we were able to weigh our options. We eventually choose a family that is going to love Max like crazy and spoil the heck out of him. Very happy with every part of this process.

This little girl had eight puppy's after I rescued her, and everyone of her puppy's posted on this site. Keep up the great work, I tell everyone about Rescue Me.

     Piper came from a rescue for older dogs. We weren't looking for another family member, but there she was! I was originally told Piper had been adopted. Two days later, I found she had been returned to the rescue. It was just meant to be. I think she was just waiting for me. She fits in beautifully with our three other Chi's. The rescue was wonderful! This is our third Chihuahua from Rescue Me! What a great site!

     Jester came off EU list and was about to be put down for being a biter. With time and love, he was showing much improvement. He is only a pup of about 10 months old. He loved my grandson instantly, learned to go potty outside, sleep in my bed, and give lots of kisses. I decided it was time to post on Rescue Me to find that special forever home. The first call came within a few hours and was a match for him. They have a Chi Papillion mix also with the other side of face with the black patch over the eye. They look so much alike! With time, he will learn to love and trust and have a BLAST with his new sister in their fenced yard. Thanks so much, Dale and Vicki, for giving Jester a chance for a happy life. And thank you, Rescue Me, for such a wonderful site to help find these dogs so in need a forever home.

     My father passed away in August and my mother was left with the reality of living on a social security check. She is moving in with my family, but I can not take her dogs. Maximo is in his twilight years and in need of special care for his arthritis, incontinence, and bad teeth. My mother thought is best to put him down and I said 'no way!' He deserves to live out his life too. Rescue Me helped us find a great home for him quickly and reliably. Thanks!

     My little Rosco needed a stable, no-children home. With a newborn recently added to our family, I knew I needed to get him re-homed/adopted quickly before the winter set in. Luckily, I found the Rescue Me website, posted Rosco, and in less than 24hrs of posting, a wonderful angel named Sarah called me to inquire about adopting Rosco! Hours later that afternoon, they met, he went home with his new mommy... and the rest is history. He is happy, loved and number one in her and her husbands life. She can provide him the love, care & personal attention that I unfortunately cannot give him right now. Thank you to Rescue Me for helping us cross paths with a wonderful animal lover who will give Rosco the quality of life he deserves!

     I adopted Pudge using the Rescue Me site only six days ago. I loved being able to see a photo of the dog and the description provided of their features/characteristics and other behaviors. The description was spot on and it was such a quick process, from the moment I viewed Pudges profile, inquired about her, was given a response and applied for the adoption. Pudge's foster mom was very helpful in answering my questions about Pudge. Pudge has been a wonderful addition to my family and my other two pups love her. Each and every dog deserves a forever home and what they offer their humans is so much more than money can buy!!! Thank you.

     Thank you, Rescue Me. Joanne and Chris adopted two dogs I saved from kill shelters. They said they would foster Minnie because she was so shy. I thought they could help her overcome this. They've had her a month now and she is getting better, but she must have been through some drama. She was on the EU list to be put down, until I had her pulled. Thank God for good people like them! They told me they just want to adopt her to be able to keep showing her love and attention and help her overcome her fear. Thanks so much Joanne and Chris for giving her a chance to be with such wonderful people and live out a happy life!

     I adopted sweet little Maisey, after seeing her on Rescue Me. What a sweet little love bug she is! I have taken her to work with me and, after being afraid of meeting new people (specifically men), she has calmed down and accepted pets and strokes from everyone, whilst being cradled safely in my arms. She gets along well with my two BT's and has now started playing with them. It is so cute to see her racing around and fitting in with our family. So happy this site is available to help these babies find their new 'furever' homes.

     When I saw Piglet and Nina on Rescue Me, I knew they had to be a part of my family. I didn't mind the 10 hour drive to get them. The trip back with them made me fall more in love with them. The process and everyone I communicated with was great and made the process even more pleasant. Today my Piglet and Nina are doing great and loving their new home and family, who I may say spoils them rotten. Thanks to your organization, my family is delighted!

     I searched for many months and had trials with two dogs that were not suitable for the environment I live in. I had just about given up when I found Charlie and decided I had to meet him. He was an owner surrender. They were very gracious and brought Charlie to meet me and, because I am not in the best of health, my son, who will step in if something happens to me. We were both very impressed with Charlie and agreed to a one week trial. I knew by the third day that Charlie was going to be ours forever! He's a gem! Very smart, very obedient and very loving. He really fits into this busy building of senior citizens and disabled persons in the heart of the city. He has many new friends who think he's the bee's knees, too! Thank you, Rescue Me.

     I lost both of my toy poodles that I had since they were puppies in 2012 (age 12) and 2014 (age 16). I got a third (Chihuahua) puppy from a friend in 2009. My son and I started talking and decided it was time to add a new member to our family and get a playmate for my now six year old Chihuahua. I first looked on another popular adoption site, but I was very disappointed when I didn't get any replies to the dogs I expressed an interest in. Then I decided I'd try Rescue Me. When I didn't see a Chi I was interested in or the dogs I expressed an interest in were already adopted locally, I branched out to other states. And that's where I found Luke! I found out ALL about the Tysor Veterinary Clinic also. In less than an hour after I submitted my application for Luke, a lady named Becky called me from the Clinic. I couldn't believe that there weren't other applications for him before mine! After some phone calls and emails, Becky said I was approved! When Becky asked how they were going to get Luke to us, I told her 'If it's ok, my son, instead of me, will drive down to pick him up.' She said that was fine. So on Wednesday of this week, my son went to the Clinic and got him. Becky took a picture and emailed it to me. :) The night of the adoption, she friended me on Facebook. Luke is my first rescue and I can honestly say I enjoyed everything about my experience on Rescue Me. I would highly recommend your site over the other one I tried first. Thank you so much for creating this site! ~Pat~

     Thank you Rescue Me! Due to having placed Max on your site, my sister asked me to send photos of him so that our cousin who takes her dogs to doggie park can show them to see if anyone of these dog lovers would be interested. Well, who woulda thought?! I sent her pictures last night and she called me 15 minutes ago because she couldn't stop looking at him and remembering how affectionate, he was when my family would come over to get togethers. This would not have happened had I not put him on Rescue Me. She will be picking him up in two weeks so she can get doggie door and doggie seat. She is so delighted!

     I help the dogs in need. With the floods, they were putting down dogs so fast it was unreal. I had people from all over the United States who were trying to help. I helped many. And now, thanks to Rescue Me, I have found many homes for Shih Tzus and Chihuahuas. Lola was my baby doll. I just loved her. She took a bit to get comfortable with people, but in no time at all she was in love with her new owner and her husband too. It was just meant to be. They said if Ranger was not adopted out soon, they would think about adopting Ranger too from the high kill shelter I pull from. Thank you adopter! You're the best.

     Due to some aggression Domino had towards my baby nephew, I had to find a new home for my 10-year-old Chihuahua. I was so worried because I just didn't know who would want to adopt a senior dog with some aggression issues towards kids and other dogs, but I know how sweet and wonderful he can be as long as he isn't in those situations. I knew he wouldn't survive going to a shelter and I wanted to avoid putting him down so I turned to the Chihuahua Rescue Me site. It took a few days, but I got a call from a really nice young guy who was looking to rescue a senior Chihuahua. It turned out that Domino looked exactly like his Dad's Chihuahua who had a similar personality. He adopted Domino and has kept me updated with photos and videos. I can see that Domino is happy in his new home and has a second chance! I miss him terribly, but I don't have to worry about Domino scaring or hurting a child in this new situation. Thank you Rescue Me! -Stephanie

     Rescue Me works!!! I am so happy to report another success story. Porter's new forever family traveled over six hours to come adopt him and they never would have seen him otherwise. They fell in love with a Porter's photo and description and, after calling me and talking about him, there was just no question. They said I should have seen Porter's face when they started to put on his new collar with tags. He craned his little neck to them as if he knew exactly what it meant to have a collar put on and he was so happy afterward. I am over the moon for Porter and for his new forever family because they are very lucky to have found him via Rescue Me.

     I think my dog found a good home. He is living on a large piece of property and that is good because he loves to run. The couple that got him are very nice and seemed to love him from the start. He also seemed to love them. Thank you Rescue Me.

     Success! Baxter was adopted by a wonderful family! Baxter now has a yard, children to play with and the being spoiled he deserves. I am very happy he has such a wonderful new home! I know he will do well for many years to come! Thank you, Rescue Me.

     We posted Pluto on Sunday and that very same day, a family who had recently lost their Chihuahua rescued him. We've posted a dozen dogs so far on Rescue Me and every single one has been adopted or rescued by another organization. Pluto was going to be put to sleep Tuesday; instead he will go home with his new family :) 'Those who will exclude any of God's creatures from the shelter of compassion and pity will deal likewise with their fellow man.'

     Thank you, Rescue Me. We adopted Cordelia about a week ago. I had been looking for a rescue and after seeing her picture and reading her profile we fell in love. My husband and 16 year-old daughter couldn't be happier. She's a very loving dog an absolute sweetheart. She's still adjusting, but has come a long way. Every day you can see she's coming out of her shell and really starting to enjoy being a puppy. It's absolutely heartwarming to see her so happy now. I'd recommend adopting to anyone. We're in love!

     My husband and I adopted Oscar. I saw his profile on Rescue Me and decided to go to our local shelter and find out more about him. It was love at first sight and we are so happy to have the pleasure of adopting him. He is really very lovable and we are training him to leash walk, even though he stays right with us at home and is very well behaved. He is adjusting to our outside cat named Lester, whom we also rescued about nine years ago. I really believe that adoption and rescue is the way, but please be aware of all issues and do not be afraid to ask a lot of questions. Too many 'fur' babies get abandoned and need good homes. Thank you Rescue Me for all that you do to get the word out! Our grandkids are so excited to meet him this summer! They range from eight to thirteen years old and I know Oscar is going to get lots of love and attention from them.

     Thank you, Rescue Me. Bianca is a nine year old fluff ball, long hair Chihuahua. Sweetest personally and adapted to my home in a short time. Making friends with the condo staff and neighbors. Everyone loves her adorable little face. Just like my rescue cat I was lucky to adopt her. She came from a good family.

Thank you to the wonderful people who adopted the beautiful babies!

     Thank you, Rescue Me. Cassie was a dog from the county pound. She had not been rescued or adopted so I brought her home as my foster. Dogs can only be fostered for a fairly limited time and I ended up adopting to to keep her from going back to the pound. She is a special girl and I took my time finding just the right forever home. Thank you Kim! Adopt, don't shop. You saved two lives, this little girl and the next one I will be able to bring home and help by getting the next dog their forever home.

     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!

     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.

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.

     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.

     Thank you so much for helping Boomer and all of the pets on Rescue Me! Boomer found his forever home with Denise and her family. We are so grateful to everyone that helped get this little guy a loving family. Most of all Dr. David Fidel, who allowed Boomer to stay in Fidelity Animal Hospital for 'as long as is takes' to make sure he was in the right home. Keep up the great work!

     'Taco' the Chihuahua is doing so well, he has been neutered and is up to date on all vaccinations. He is settling into my home with my other dogs and cats and his previous owner is so glad I have him. A huge 'Thank You' to Dr. Steven Roberts and staff for transporting 'Taco' to me- a wonderful vet and a great man! Thank you to Rescue Me for helping me to rescue another 'little one', you are a wonderful organization!
