     Thank you for providing a vehicle for people to turn to when circumstances are not in our control. Cotton was adopted by a lovely retired couple who have all the time in the world to devote to him. He will no longer be alone for 10 hours a day thanks to your very user friendly site. I will spread the word about your website. Heartbreaking, but I am at peace with my decision since it is in his best interest. His new parents told me I was welcome to visit him. He will be living about three hours north of me, so it is a possibility that I will get an opportunity to do just that. I would love to see him well taken care of and happy in his new forever home. Sincerely grateful, Mary

     I had been looking for the right dog for me. I am almost 60 years old. I found Princess on Rescue Me, and knew she was the one for me. I drove over 200 miles to meet her. She is doing well and we are both happy. Thank you, Rescue Me, for helping me find Princess. -Wanda

Thanks to wonderful Rescue Me, we found her the perfect home where she will be spoiled. Thank you so very much for your relentless efforts to assist those fur angels we are entrusted with, and in making the world a better place.

     I was looking for a Maltese mix puppy when my husband advised that one of his company's clients rescued a Standard Poodle. I then looked up Maltese dogs for rescue in my area. When I saw this little girl, I knew I had to give her a home. She is such a huge blessing and we love her. It is much better to adopt than to buy a puppy. I would highly recommend to use Rescue Me to find your dream doggie.

     Louis was adopted out to a loving home. I was impressed with the number a quality of applicants requesting the opportunity to adopt Louis. The family who adopted him wanted a companion for their tea cup Yorkie and brought the dog to meet Louis. At first it was a little strained with Louis growling, but after about ten minutes, he became more accepting and wanted to play with the little Yorkie. The family drove two hours late in the evening to meet Louis. I am very happy with the outcome and also surprised at the ease of the adoption through Rescue Me.

     This was my first time ever posting on any site. I do not work with ANIMAL CONTROL, I AM JUST A CONCERNED CITIZEN WANTING AND TRYING TO HELP. As soon as I was finished posting all the animals in our local animal control, it seemed like only minutes before I started getting emails about Harley and Dutchess.. Today, Joe from our animal control called with good news. Now I will go there daily to check and see who I can help. Thank you, Rescue Me!

     I posted my mom's dog, Benji, on Rescue Me on a Thursday and by Saturday he was adopted to a better home than I could ever wish for him. The girl was so excited to bring him into her family and was able to love him as much as we did, but able to give him the one on one attention he needed and deserved that we were not able to provide. Although I miss him a lot, I know I did the best for him by finding him a home on this website. -Cody

     I work at a homeless shelter and one of our resident families could no longer care for their animals so the dogs were abandoned. I posted on Rescue Me on Friday. Within 24 hours, I received numerous inquiries. Monday we placed them with a family that was willing to take them both. They were placed with a loving family who had just lost their beloved pet. Thank you for your service and the great opportunities that your site provides to pets in need. In the future (if needs arise again), I will make sure to use Rescue Me.

     My dog Maxwell was in need of someone who could walk him and love him as I did. I rescued him from a shelter where he would have been put down. I saw the jewel behind the matted coat and scared eyes in this dog and adopted him in 2012. I took him home, groomed him and got his shots up to date. I loved him for the following years. However, my husband got really sick and it was hard to take care of him and all my other animals. Maxwell was not getting the attention he needs.. He needed to be walked to lose his weight. I have RA and its hard for me to do that. So I posted him on Rescue Me. Within two days, I had people wanting to adopt him. He is a beautiful dog and I really appreciate this site. Thanks Rescue Me for helping Maxwell find his new home where I know he will be taken care of.

     We adopted Charlie. Within hours, he adapted to his new family and especially his new brother Tinker (the cat). Even though he is considered an 'inside dog' he loves his new life on our farm. He loves car rides to town, and especially riding around the farm with Papa on the golf cart. Most days you will find him cuddled up on couch and cuddled up on the bed at bedtime. When he came to us most of his hair was gone due to severe flea allergies and subsequent yeast infection, not to mention severely infected ears. After several trips to the vet, he is finally on the road to recovery. He is so very lovable even though he obviously endured a hard life. Charlie has brought so much joy to all of our lives and WE ALL love him so very, very much. Thank you, Rescue Me, for sending Charlie our way. When I look at him I am filled with such love and happiness. It is hard to imagine him ever being fearful, shy or snappy. He never shows that side to any of us. He is just so lovable and sweet.

     My last Maltese is with my husband who resides in a senior facility now. I have missed having a Maltese to walk, so put my information on Rescue Me. I buried one of my cats so was still grieving when this site sent me an alert on this puppy. We connected and now spent my first night with Bella and was out walking this morning! She will probably be my final dog, as I am getting older, and she will always be on a pedestal from now on.

As hard as it was, I made a promise to their previous mom, who couldn't take care of them anymore because of her long term illness, that I would keep them together and find the best, most loving home ever. And I did it through blood, sweat and tears. Tomorrow they will get picked up by their new family who drove 20 hours here, now that's dedication!! Thank you so much Gwen from Second Chance, who did the home check for me in another state!! I couldn't have made this decision without Gwen!!

     Having lost our Gizmo to illness at 11 years old, it took some time to find another perfect fit for us. Not only did we want another Maltese but it was important to us to give a forever home to a dog who needed one. After searching numerous sites I stumbled on Rescue Me and watched for several weeks before Spike showed up. I contacted his previous human who has some changes going on in her life and cared enough to make Spikes well being her priority. We met and took to little Spike right away! One week later he is adjusting to life in the country and seems happy in our home. I appreciate that Rescue Me allows owners to post directly to their site, enabling those interested in adopting to be in touch directly. Angelica and I have been in touch off and on since Spike came to live with us which I believe makes his transition easier. She answers any questions I may have about his habits and preferences while she checks to see what he is up to and that he is comfortable in his new environment. Another successful match, thank you Rescue Me!

     I picked up 'Joseph' yesterday. I knew he was meant for me as soon as I saw him, because tears rolled down my face. He clung to me, and we bonded really fast. I have renamed him Shadow, because that is just what he is. He has such personality. We have gone shopping twice since yesterday. Although listed as a Maltese, I think he has a lot of Yorkie in him. Thank you, Rescue Me.

     Thank you to Rescue Me! for helping me in adopting Tebo! I had another 15 year old dog I had to put down recently due to a massive mass on her liver. She was my best friend. I was sad and lonely as I began to search for a new dog. Then I came across Tebo. He seemed like a nice dog. So I decided to meet him. It was love at first pet. Rescue Me! was hugely instrumental in helping me find and meet sweet little Tebo. I adopted him shortly after meeting him. He is currently getting over a mild case of kennel cough, but he should be home with us soon. Sometime next week I imagine. I can scarcely contain myself because I am so happy. Thank you for your assistance in helping me find Tebo.

     I recently had to put down my old dog after 15 years together because she was sick. I was missing her companionship terribly, so I started searching the internet for various dog breeds that might be suitable for me and my family. That is when I stumbled across Rescue Me! With their help I found a few likely candidates for a new dog. Then I saw a photo of Tebo. I decided to investigate this cute little guy further. To my delight, he met all the criteria we were looking for: a sweet, gentle dog that does not shed much and is good with children. I went to meet Tebo, and he and I became friends quickly. He was just as sweet and gentle as his information said. I am very happy with this adorable little dog. I thank Rescue Me! and the Arizona Small Dog Rescue for their help in helping me and my new friend find each other.

     Daisy & Teddy were adopted today by a lovely family of two sisters and one young daughter. They came immediately and drove an hour & 1/2 to see them and it was the most beautiful thing. I felt this beautiful family had been an answer to my grandmother and my prayers. They walked them a bit and we all went over to my grandmothers nursing home to introduce grandma to Daisy & Teddy's new family. My grandma couldn't have been more happy. She didn't really have words to express how happy she was the little loves of her life were going to a new home. They told us that they would keep in touch via Facebook and would bring them for visits anytime grandma wants. Thank you! You really did save many life's today, what a great service!

     First, wanted to start by thanking the staff of Rescue Me! for their work and dedication! The site Rescue Me has been a huge asset in find homes for many of our animals within our small rescue. While we only have 40 animals that are ready for adoption at a time, the Rescue Me! site has given us the highest response from potential adopters out of the three sites we use. This site also makes it easier for us to identify who a potential adopter is interested in. After Christmas I received a wave of emails on a number of our animals, Blossom a Poodle/Maltese mix being one of them! While sorting through applicants and emails, one family was very persistent and patient with us. When it came to our adoption event day, I emailed and called a few of the families that I believed would be a good fit for her, and shared our location hoping a couple of them would at least come meet her. The Sweeney family came - the whole family - grand parents, parents and grandkids, all of them fell in love with her even with her pink Mohawk reminiscent from the previous weekend of being dolled up to parade around Glendale Glitters. After sharing with them her story of rescue, her accomplishments and a couple things we hoped they would continue working on, and some friendly advice from a partnered behavioral trainer that was there for the day, the Sweeney family adopted Blossom! We couldn't be happier with the match! As we all know any adoption is bitter sweet, but leaves a foster home open for the next animal to learn to love again, and find their forever home! Thank you again, Rescue Me! Chasity Cross, Mavyn Animal Rescue, Behavioral Training Director

     I am so grateful that I found Rescue Me! when we rescued this little girl. We found her wandering in our neighborhood. This area is known for coyotes and the ending would not have been good for this sweet girl. I no sooner put her up on Rescue Me!, and I had numerous calls and emails all from compassionate people wanting to adopt her and give her a new forever home. I am sad that we couldn't track down her original owners, but what a great outcome. Thank you, Rescue Me!

     Jeff, I want to thank you for Rescue Me! I Love my Coconut and Pumpkin, but because of various reasons I decided to give them up, I miss them terribly. Phyllis adopted them. We meet on Saturday in a halfway point between her home and mine. She contacted me within an hour of posting on Rescue Me! We spoke several times and I feel at peace giving her my boys. She is retired military and she has the time to dedicate to them. I am single and need to work a second job and Pumpkin and Coconut already spend too much time in their kennels. It has been a struggle financially to keep up with their everyday care, grooming and shots. I prayed for two years so I could get to a place where I could give them up. Every time I thought or said I was, I would break down. I love them so much, but I had to sacrifice in order to give them a better life. They deserve it. Phyllis and I are going to keep in contact. She said I could visit them. I told Pumpkin and Coconut about Phyllis and why they were going to live with her. I think they understood. I swear they did and they were ok with it. When Phyllis opened her car door they hopped in and were very happy. At home no one could even walked them because they would not go out without me. It's amazing. Thank you again. Maria Irizarry

     Rudy seems like the perfect dog for us! He settled in, and fit quickly into our family as our grand kids came to visit the day after Rudy's pick up. Rudy is a sweet dog and was nice to everyone right away. He feels at home already. We are grateful to his foster home for such good care, potty training and crate training him. His greatest challenge seems to be negotiating up and down the stairs with his short legs. He is better on the deck outside than on the hardwood stairs, but he's a trooper and is making it look easier all the time. We'd never heard of Rescue Me! until a friend of our son hooked us up through Rescue Me's Havanese site. We think that a Maltipoo is the best dog for us.

Knowing the Buddy went to someone who will love him like I did, really helps with letting him go. I know he will be well cared for. Again, thank you.

     Dear Jeff, I am the lady who adopted Tinker Belle. She is the sweetest little girl! She is a happy little girl. She and I bonded right away. She follows me around the house, wagging her tail. She sleeps on the pillow next to me all night. My other two rescues, Cotton and Coco are her new two best friends. I truly believe God brought us together! Thanks, Becky, for allowing me to adopt her!

     Tinker Bell has found a loving home. I am so grateful for all of you who inquired about adopting Tinker Bell. My hope is that she will be able to accept her new loving home with limited anxiety. I hope all of you who inquired about Tinker Bell find another pet whom you will be able to provide a home for. Thank you again, Becky Stath Smith

     I am so happy to say that my dog was adopted in less than 24 hours. I was contacted by very nice people and chose the perfect home. This was a difficult decision but using Rescue Me! made the process easy and rewarding. Thank you so much for making this available to the general public. I'm sure you have found so many homes for pets. We are all grateful!

     Coco was adopted by a wonderful family within 30 hours of posting!! He found a home with a family that will love and take care of him and now he has a little brother - a Maltipoo! His new mom understands him and knows how to train a dog. I think she's the alpha owner he's needed! Thank you to his new family. I didn't think I would find a home so quickly. His new family and I stay in touch and I will visit him over the next couple of weeks. I miss him but I know he's in a loving home.

I thank God for Rescue Me as it saved 2 of my furry kids. :)

     I had to sadly re-adopt the love of my life Poof, a gorgeous Maltese. I miss her every second of every day. The lady who adopted her was more than I could have ever asked for. She loves her and let's her sleep with her in her bed with her cat and husband. She now goes everywhere with her new owner and is loved to death. She still gives me constant updates and it is really great about everything!

     My post on Rescue Me! was a complete success. I posted and nine days later the first contact turned out to be the perfect prospective family. It took some emailing, calling and texting back and forth to finally get together but the adoption happened, and they seem willing to do whatever it takes to make their home be the dog's forever home.

     I am so thankful that someone referred me to Rescue Me! My very sweet dog will have a new home with wonderful people and I couldn't be happier. We were unable to give him the time and attention that he needed and I wanted something better for him. I believe that it just what I found through this rescue site! I will be forever grateful to Lisa and her family for saving Simon!

     Thanks to Rescue Me, a wonderful woman was able to find my post, and take the two abandoned pups I had! She was not able to keep them herself, but was able to bring them to the Oklahoma Westie Rescue in Tulsa, OK! If it wasn't for this site, I'd never have gotten in contact with someone who could help them!

     I put a posting for my mother's Maltese a couple of weeks ago. I had a couple of calls. The second person who called decided to come and take him for a trial to see how things would work. After a day or so, he decided that the dog was not a good fit for him as he was not active enough to keep up with the individual's lifestyle. However, that individual told someone with whom he worked about the dog and that individual decided to adopt him permanently. He is in a perfect setting for him. A quiet home on a quiet, dead end street with two adults, one of whom is around all of the time, no children, and other small dogs to keep him company. He has adjusted very well and I am very please that the word of mouth, started by listing the dog on this website, resulted in a good home for him. I will certainly recommend it to others.

     I want to thank you for the helping me find a great home for Henry. He was my sweet boy and I love him to pieces. I'm so incredibly glad that the person who adopted him fell instantly in love with him and is treating him like a king. He has already been treated to a new bed, toys, great food and so much love and affection. Thank you for helping make this into such a happy ending for Henry.

     Thank goodness for this site! I did not know where to turn when the time came to place Fritz, a four year old Maltese left by Mom as she left this world. Thanks to this site and a friend who referred me to it, I had many responses and potential new families to place him with. He is now living with a wonderful lady who just adores him. She has given me 'visitation privileges' and I hope to be able to visit him in the future once he is adapted to his new home. Words cannot express the gratitude I feel for having a resource like Rescue Me.

     Thank you so very much, Jeff, for this wonderful website; RescueMe.Org. Within one day of posting Rocko's picture & profile, we received three inquiries & requests are still coming in. Rocko chose his own forever family. It was love at first sight; Rocko for them & vice versa. I couldn't have asked for a better outcome & I definitely plan to make a donation so that other deserving rescue animals can have their dreams of a forever home fulfilled via this website. Thanks again!

     Despite some behavior problems, 5 year-old Lilly was profiled on Rescue Me! when I was no longer to keep her due to allergies. Within 24 hours, I had two families interested in meeting her. One of the families drove all the way from Prescott to West Phoenix for a meeting and it was love at first site for all concerned. The family loves their new Lilly, she loves them, and I am so happy to have found a forever home for her. We are going to keep in contact, arrange future visits, and have formed a new friendship. Thank you, Rescue Me!

     Lil'Bit found a new forever home! I want to thank Mr. Jeff Gold for the tremendous success of his organization. I received calls from as far as Virginia. It did not take me more than a month to place him. And due to the responses I was able to be selective about whom he went to. My late husband's beloved Maltese now resides on a farm with another Maltese his age along with a cat and two cows! His new family reports that he has already become protective of their grandmother. Thanks again Rescue Me! I will recommend you to friends and family!

     Rescue Me is a wonderful site to connect interested parties find and adopt animals. We had to find a new home for our little maltese because we were moving and not able to take her with us. This site helped us find a new loving home for little Abby in a very short period of time. Without this site, I have no idea how we would have been able to find the perfect person interested in adopting our Abby. Thank you so much!

I feel like this was a GOD send as my situation seemed very bleak in the beginning. I will definitely donate and support your cause. Thanks

     Hi, I am happy to say this website helped my Bella find a great home with 2 other maltese's. She will now have 2 sisters and someone who is available to give her all the love she needs and deserves. We work so much and it was unfair for Bella to be home alone all the time, so Cindy who adopted her is such a wonderful fit for her, she's home and travels with the dogs, so I am so thrilled! I didn't want Bella to just go to anyone, so I am happy that Rescue Me helped her find a great home.

     I had to find a new home for my 2 Maltese. I posted on Rescue Me site (instead of Craig's List) hoping I would find someone who was very dog friendly, loved dogs enough to consider 'rescuing.' I found a wonderful lady to take my two sweethearts. I feel very comfortable that my dogs now have a loving, caring home. Thanks Rescue Me!

     Jeff, My girls and I have found the newest additions to our family through your website, Rescue Me! Ozzie and Hootie! And, boy Hootie is a Hoot!!! These 2 brothers are amazing! They are very well behaved and are just beautiful amazing dogs. Our experience in adopting and finding them was wonderful! It was like we were all meant to be! Their previous owner was very outgoing and friendly. She was sad to see them go but, I think pleased to see them go to a home where now they have four sisters! That's two canine and two human. Lol... :) as well as a large fenced in back yard to play in. Everyone is doing great, I'm happy to report! Even little Kisses gave in to their charm. :) Funny how we came upon the boys and here they are... Cute, since the sign on my front door says, 'no boys aloud!' ;) Here's hoping I can keep that sign up until the girls graduate high-school... Smile :) Many Thanks!!! Jennylee, Caitlyn, Emily, Kisses, Raspberry, Ozzie and Hootie!
