     We have found Ace a wonderful home just a few days after submitting a post on Rescue Me! He now has a big, fenced in back yard to run in along with two other Rhodesians to play with. We will miss him terribly but have peace knowing he is with a good family.

     I'm happy to report that this lovely baby girl has found an amazing home. Thank you Rescue Me! Her new mommy and daddy are as sweet as they can be. My heart is so happy. She went from scared and almost getting hit by cars to a wonderful warm home. Thank you so much.

     Our seven year old pup was adopted by a wonderful family. Bess now gets regular runs, has three children and two adults to share a home with and another dog to call her own. The Rescue Me site was easy and, with a little patience, effective. We are happy for Bess and for her new family.

     Buddy found a wonderful forever home with people who love and cherish him. They responded the first day to the post I placed on Rescue Me. We spoke on the phone several times and, since we were far from one another, we agreed to meet halfway to make the doggie exchange. All is good. I called them that evening to check on Buddy and his new Mom laughed and said that she was lying in bed watching a little TV and that Buddy was right there in the bed with her! I laughed out loud. Their daughter has three Ridgebacks, so Buddy now has not only a new forever home and family, but other Ridgebacks to play and frolic with. His new home is on three fenced acres near the beach and his owners take him walking on that beach. He has bonded with them and my heart is full of love and good wishes. I have also gained new friends during this adoption process. Rescue Me works! I received many, many requests, but I know I made the right choice for Buddy!

     I have received so many emails and calls for Marley. This sweetheart that I saved from being euthanized found his perfect home because of this Rescue Me site. I was able to speak one on one with the lady who inquired first. She was very cooperative in letting me verify vet references. I am so happy that he will finally get the loving home that he so much deserves. I am grateful and thank you for helping me and Marley.

     Pepper finally found a home in a very dog friendly city. She has beaches to run and play in, on the sand, and two ladies that will love her the rest of her days. She will be missed. Thanks for your help in finding her a new home. Jo Ann

     We recently adopted Jake, a seven month old puppy. Jake is our second Rhodesian mix adopted through Rescue Me! It has been just as pleasant an experience as the first time! Jake is adjusting well to his new environment and loves playing with his sister Miss Cheff. Thank you for a service that makes adopting so much easier!

     I posted Roscoe's picture on Rescue Me! on a Tuesday evening. By Thursday, I had found a family for him. I was overwhelmed at the response I received, but I had no difficulty deciding which home I wanted Roscoe to become part of. Although I will miss him terribly, I am certain that he will be welcomed and loved by his new owners. Rescue Me! offers a phenomenal service to dogs and dog lovers. Thank you!

     I posted Libby on Wednesday evening and had a response email from an interested family that night. After a few emails, phone calls and a play date with the new owner's dog, she has been re-homed with a new loving family that will be able to give her all the attention and exercise that she deserves. Thank you, Rescue Me!

     My family and I fostered Daisy for one year, and reached a point where we needed to find her a forever home. I received several inquiries on Daisy after posting her on Rescue Me's Ridgeback Rescue. Plenty to choose from in order to find her the perfect home. She is now in a happy home with four children, and she will not be alone as much as she had been. I feel confident that she will be loved and appreciated the way she deserves to be. Thank you for this site!

     I posted Conen's photo on a Wednesday, and he was adopted by a wonderful family who is thrilled to welcome him to their family on Friday. I didn't expect it would be so easy to find such a great home for him so quickly. Would highly recommend Rescue Me! to anyone forced to find a home for their Ridgeback. Kevin Connors

     As soon as I received the alert from Rescue Me!, I contacted Nala's owners and will be taking her in next week. She is a beautiful girl from a loving family, and needs a little Ridgeback know-how. She will be loved and nurtured as all Ridgebacks should. Thank you, Rescue Me!

     I usually foster dogs from Animal Services, a high kill shelter in my area. This is how I met my George. George was on death row. He was on the waiting list to be euthanized. A few days before, Jessica, who works at the shelter, sent out an alarming list of dogs that were out of time and would certainly die, and urged us to help save a few. I visited the shelter and fell in love with George, he was a big boy, but he is so friendly and lovable, with a great personality. He is a Rhodesian Ridgeback mix with beautiful amber eyes and a silly smile. In addition to his goofy walk, he has a charming aura that makes everyone that meets him instantly fall in love with him I fostered him for a few months, and a week ago I was contacted by Jamie Lipman who had seen George on Rescue Me! and was interested in adopting him. We met and Jamie absolutely adored George. Last weekend I said bye to my handsome George but feel so enriched that I was able to give this wonderful boy, who was left to die and forgotten in hell, a second wonderful chance.

     We had nearly instant success with the Rescue Me! website. The SPCA and other organizations were of no help. This pup was dumped at a busy intersection, and it took nearly two days to capture her. She now has a good home. Thanks!

     We were able to find Pipa an awesome home! The couple that adopted her had a Rhodesian Ridgeback who passed away from cancer and they were looking to get another. They came to visit Pipa and everyone including her, fell in love with each other. She is going to a great home with a HUGE yard and a loving 6 yr. old boy to play with and become buddies!! We will be making a donation to Rescue Me in the next month or so to say thanks! Thank you so much for your Rescue Me website!!

     After posting Spice on Rescue Me!, I had calls from several individuals within hours. She was adopted by a loving family who couldn't wait to get her. She has already been introduced to the grandchildren, who fell in love with her. Spice has an older doggie to play with, but most important, she now has a loving family to call her own. Beautiful baby.

     I was able to get Pappi a home in 2 days. He left last night with a man who specifically wanted that breed and wants a companion both at home and at work. He came equipped with another amiable dog lover who knows training which eased the transition. Pappi went right into the crate for the trip home without our help I wouldn't know what I would have done.The new owner is willing to repay me for the shots and I will then donate this to the organization.

     After I put my Rhodesian Ridgeback on Rescue Me I got a call (approx 6 days) & I found a good home for him. I sure hated to see him go but being handicap, I could not play with him anymore, THANKS RESCUE ME. Wish I could help you guys but fixed income don't go to fat. Les Hawkins

My health isn't good so I had to find her a home. I'm on disability and on a limited monthly income but when I get some extra money I will be making a donation for the help of getting her a home. Thanks so much. JOY

     I was very pleased with the website. Without it I would have never met Scott and Jodi Witt or found the best possible home for our Lucas. We have been blessed in a couple of different ways....Lucas has GREAT adopted parents and we have new friends. They are just what we prayed for; a family who would love him just as much as we do or more. Jeff - Thank you for the heart to create this website. Scott/Jodi - Thanks again for the love you have for him and the new found friendship. Margo R. Harris

     Dear Jeff, I did, indeed, find a wonderful home for Sable. At this time she is on her way to Columbus, Ga to meet her 'forever' family. Rescue Me is a wonderful site, and I received many calls from placing Sable and Mink on your site. I am sure that Mink will find her 'forever' home this weekend. Thank you so much for offering this service. Joy www.SchnauzerLoveRescue.org
