     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!

     Hi Jeff, She was adopted by a wonderful family. I carried her there myself to verify it would be a good fit. She was playing with their other babies having the time of her life. This is the best website if you care about baby and want to make sure that baby has a great home. I will recommend Rescue Me! to anyone looking to rehome, or looking to get a new baby. I have spoken with so many wonderful people, I almost wished I had a baby for each of them. Thank You, Mary

     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

     After contacting several rescues in our area, it became apparent that it is very difficult to get a dog placed with a rescue organization due to the lack of available space. I came across Rescue Me! during my search. This was the only site I found that allowed me to post my pet myself. It took just over a week for Mel to be adopted by a wonderful couple.


Sender: Deb Fiore     Date: November 24, 2013 _
     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!

     After we had made the difficult decision to rehome our Maltese, we were only concerned in finding her the best home. I posted her on the Rescue Me! site and had a number of responses very quickly. I chose Tom and Lorraine, and they came to visit with us later that day. I thought they would be a great couple to care and love our dog. Thank you for helping us find our dog a new and wonderful family!

     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

     Hi Jeff, I met with Marlene Waterman today and she fell in love with Truman. It seems to be a good fit. She is retired and has a large group of friends that have small dogs, and they all walk together daily. She will be able to give him the love and attention he needs, so that is a plus. Thank you so much. Regards, Carol Roberts

     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.

     Rescue Me! helped me find a wonderful home for Buddy. He went to a loving home and I would not have found such a home for Buddy had it not been for this wonderful site. I can't say thank you enough. My dog was my heart and soul, but life changes forced me into making the hardest decision of my life, giving my baby away. 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.

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!

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 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 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.

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.

     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.

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!!!

     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!

     Within hours of placing the posting, a lady needing a new buddy phoned, I took Witty to visit, and a new home was found. She had lost both her husband and dog last year, and Witty was an amazing gentleman with her. As her last dog had the same temperament as Witty, she knew what to expect and he now has a big house and HUGE yard to play in. He was feeling pretty proud of himself on learning how to use a dog door when it was time for me to go. Thank you for your service.

     Harley was adopted today! It was hard to say goodbye, but we feel confident he is in a great home with wonderful owners. We are so thankful for your organization. We knew Harley needed a new home, but we had no idea the best way to find him a good home. Within minutes of posting Harley on your site, we had people emailing us. We were very pleased with Rescue Me! Thank you, Joshua

     Jeff, Chester went to his forever home this afternoon. As soon as I added my picture today, I had four emails of interest. He went to a great home that I felt very good about. I loved how easy your site was to use and how easy the contact back and forth was. I will absolutely donate to the site, I appreciated having a place to go to find a great home for our puppy. Thank you, Lori

     Someone has adopted Annie and we are so grateful. We had numerous responses, and that was without a picture. Some thought she was all maltese as your site highlights the maltese and the mix did not appear to them even though it was there. We will consider donating to this site and thank you for your work in helping to place these animals. Blessings, Christa Kirk

     Stella is our new Maltese Poodle. We were processed by Ron's Rescued Rascals. I appreciate the care and thoroughness that Ron's staff take to place these sweet animals in good homes. They followed through and interviewed our vet, and us as well. Stella is the perfect pet for us. Kathleen

     Hello Jeff, Howie was adopted this morning by a great family here in Knoxville. It was actually a referral from a mutual friend but I received several emails from prospective 'parents' from my posting on RescueMe.org. I would not hesitate to use the site again for an animal in need of a good home. Thanks for the wonderful resource Jayne

     Dear Jeff, Rylie was adopted 2 weeks ago! She went to a wonderful home with many advantages for her and I am sure she will be happily loved for the rest of her life. I had many responses to my post on your site, and as I am sure is normal... I have been very pleased. Thank you for providing such a wonderful resource to dog lovers. I would highly recommend the site to others.

     I cannot believe how easy this was. I have had dogs (3 at a time at one point) all my life, so I think I'm responsible in the care/feeding of them. For 13 months, I was worried about Shasta being left for days at a time. While others can do it, I felt guilty putting her in a GREAT boarding place because they caged the dogs out of necessity. My dogs have always come with me and 'run free' in my backyard. The people, who drove 4 hours one way, to get Shasta are very special. I posted Shasta on Saturday morning and 24 hours later she is heading to live with 4 other Maltese mixes in South Carolina. I cannot shout praises loud enough about Maltese support people and your website. Thank you for helping me and, more importantly, the dogs.

     Sweet Pea was adopted by a very nice lady who has and loves Maltese. We were very lucky to find her through Rescue Me! We always dreaded the possibility that our little friend might have to go to a shelter. Thank you. Rim

     I received an email alert for Boss who is the shih-tzu maltese mix....having a fond love of the Shih-Tzu breed and wanting to add another to our family, we thought we'd throw our name in the hat for the current owners. She responded to let me know that I was second on her list and I thanked her and shared the story of how I fell in love with this breed....She asked for a day to consider her options. Here is the response and my story! Please take your time as I understand this must be a tough decision. My husband is a stay at home father and we home school our children 8 & 5, one of which is autistic. We always wanted to get a smaller inside dog that my oldest (autistic), could help with. We have seen and researched a lot on the subject as we have seen so many reports where dogs help these kids come out of their 'shells.' The problem was that I have always been allergic to dogs. A year and a half ago my mother died, two week afterward a black and white shih tzu showed up on our front door. My oldest kept telling me that there was a puppy on the porch, he insisted so I opened the door and in walked this adorable dog. Knowing that we couldn't keep him because of my allergies we searched for weeks for his owners, finally realizing that I was not going to find them we came to terms that he adopted our family and much to my surprise I NEVER had one single allergy problem. This was explained when I researched the breed and found that they have hair and not fur. Rex has now been with us for well over a year, sleeps in my bed every night, follows me around everywhere I go and what is most amazing of all, he will get up with me in the morning and while I am getting ready for work he goes back and lays down with my children. He then won't leave their sides until the last boys wakes up. We decided a few months ago that we would love to add another to our family since this is an amazing breed of dog but decided to adopt one instead of buying one from a breeder. I'm sure that there are far more dogs out there that need a good home and love than spending an excessive amount on one from someone who is going to continue to breed them for profit. Rexi goes everywhere with us and is truly my third child. Thank you for taking the time to respond to me, we look forward to hearing your decision which ever you decide I am sure that you will make the decision that is best for your puppy! We drove almost two hours today to pick him up, and fell in love. Our Shih-tzu likes him as well as our autistic son who refused to call him Boss since, as he informed us, he was not the boss...so we now call him Ross. I hope that this helps, he is a great pup that is going to make a wonderful addition to our family. Sincerely, Katy Wilkerson

     Thanks to your open free posting and adoption option our Boss found a wonderful home within 24 hours. We got to meet and spend time with the new family and he loved them immediately, without divulging their personal situation..I believe they are a perfect fit! Thank you so much for allowing responsible owners that are under extreme circumstances to post their loved animals for people who want to give these pets a new family. Was simple and we will sleep good tonight knowing he will be ok and will get updates from this wonderful family

     Hi Jeff, Fancy did find a home... The people that adopted her came to my home and brought their 4 year old (1/2 of Fancy's size) with them and they loved her from the start. It only took a short time before she started going to them. (She'd been pretty clingy to me so I was worried) but the husband and wife keep me updated as to how she is doing and I love that because I do miss her, but I know I just couldn't afford to care for an animal at this time with just my income. Fancy apparently loves the neighborhood. She loves to go away and she is now joining 'her sister' on the recliner and it only took a short time for them to behave as if they had been together all their lives. Maybe that is what she needed. I'm thinking because the people I got her from in February had bread her 3 times, maybe she was missing the company of another dog but I know she enjoyed cuddling with me but just didn't like the noise from the street. She is living in a quiet community and loves it. You have my permission to use anything i said that might help others know that 'Rescue Me' shelter was helpful. Even after she was adopted and I 'thought' i had marked adopted, I had about 6 emails asking if she was adopted. So people are using the Rescue site. Thank you so much. Thanks again for your site. It was very helpful. Debi Miller Gettysburg PA

     Jeff - I am pleased to say that Joshua was indeed adopted to a sweet lady and I can only thank RescueMe.org for the platform in which to find him a new home. Having a special site dedicated to the adoption of the Maltese breed made it easier because the only people who contacted me were people interested in this breed specifically. While I am sad that Joshua is gone, I am happy that his new mommy and siblings were happy to have him in their home. Sincerely, Nancy

     Good Morning Jeff: Jane's Maltese was adopted by a physical therapist... She heard about Jane's plight and had just lost their own loving pet. It has been a wonderful transition for Jane because each time the therapist comes here she shares stories about Miss Precious to keep her 'in the loop.' We received a few requests to adopt Miss Precious through Rescue Me! Each email demonstrated a genuine concern from the writer and an earnest desire to fill the void in their life from the loss of their own pet. Thank you for all you do. Sincerely, Rosemary Saatjian Resident Support

     Harley has been adopted by a woman who says that she had a dream she would find the perfect dog named Harley. We are both very happy, thank you. Lara

     Denise saw her on the web page and contacted me from Denver, Colorado. We conversed quite a few times, and she paid for Baby Girl's last surgery to remove a lump and clean her teeth (she also had 5 teeth pulled!) Denise drove from Colorado to Muskogee and met me there to transfer Baby and her medicines, food, toys and sleep comforter. I have talked with Denise since they made it home and they seem very happy! Thank you for all your help! Rebecca
