     I was surprised at how quickly Lucy was adopted, being that she was a senior dog with a couple of health issues. I was hoping to find her a good home, rather than send her to a shelter, even a 'no kill' shelter. There were two gentlemen interested in her initially, but one had to pass due to a change in his circumstances. Lucy is now happily residing in her new home in a very dog friendly town. Thank you, Rescue Me!

     Yeti was abandoned on a corner across from my workplace. For six months, neither I nor anyone else could touch him. In December and after many untold roadblocks, he came home with me. Slowly he began to trust and love. Unfortunately, my Chiweenie did not like him nor would she play with him or even let him have affection if she was in the room. He deserves more and as a herd dog, he needed more. Though I wanted to be his real Mom, it became clear that for his sake he needed a home without a hateful Chiweenie included! The sweetest couple who only recently lost their white Heeler saw Yeti's picture on Rescue Me. 'He's the one,' Yeti's new daddy said. After they came to meet him it was obvious to us all Yeti belonged with them and his new little brother, Amos. As a plus he would have ten acres, a large yard, a pool and two retired parents to spend time with. When he left two days later, my husband and I sobbed. So did his new parents. But Yeti's story has the happiest of endings I could ever have asked his maker for. Thank you, Lord and thank you, Rescue Me!

     Thank you, Rescue Me! Buddy was a family pet and when Dad died, he lost his pack leader. We decided to re-home him because he deserved to find someone who could give him the time he requires and love him. We posted him on Rescue Me and received a few responses and then we found Ed or should I say Ed found us. It was a perfect fit. I think Buddy has found his new 'best friend' and I hope Ed found his.

     We needed a home for our young Heeler/Aussie who needed much more time and attention than we could give him due to recent added responsibilities. A wonderful family called and offered a home where he would have more interaction and freedom to roam inside and outside. I am sure he will love it! Thank you, Rescue Me!

     After having my dog Matilda on Rescue Me, within a few days I received a call from a woman approximately thirty minutes away. Unfortunately, she had just lost her male Cattle Dog three weeks earlier. My sister and I drove to her residence to see how Matilda reacted to the woman, her sister, and her sister's two dogs (one being a male Cattle Dog). The visit went well, and the woman decided to give Matilda a loving home. She also happened to be a groomer and an agility trainer. It could not have been a more perfect match, and now Matilda has a wonderful home including a memory foam dog bed at the foot of her new owner's bed. I was so grateful to this woman for giving my sweet dog a loving home, that when she asked me how much I wanted for her, I had not even thought about money being involved. Therefore, I declined her offer and told her that I was just so very thankful for a good home for my beloved dog. Thank you so much Rescue Me!

     When my beloved dog, Red, died unexpectedly, something in me died too, and the heaviness in my heart was inconsolable. Then I found myself searching for a dog that reminded me of him and I saw Radhu on your Rescue Me! And to my amazement saw that he was en route to my home state. Oh, this was meant to be! I drove the 80 miles through heavy, blinding rain to adopt him. He was the most timid, scared puppy curled up in a tight ball and just cowering from whatever life had thrown at him. I had to carry him to my car and when he met my two Schnauzers awaiting their new brother, he started wagging his tail. As I drove home a huge double rainbow formed ahead of us over the highway and I couldn't believe we were actually driving through the colors! I felt my dog Red was leaving me now and running up that Rainbow Bridge. He will never be replaced, but little Radhu has restored my joy. Now he is the happiest, funniest boy. Pepper, my female Schnauzer, has taken him right under her wings. The best of friends, all three dogs cavort and play and race all over the 10 acres and through their own forest and that little dog has pulled me back into the world of the living. I have renamed him Radhu Muni Raksha, (Radhu) For those of you who know Sanskrit piecing it together God save the hermit. And He has.

     Baxter was found running in the streets during an ice storm. A kindly resident took him in during the storm, but he was too much energy for her. He was turned over to the Animal Control Officer. He was wearing a blue harness, but no tags and no microchip. His picture was posted throughout the city and neighboring towns, but no one claimed him. After he was taken to the vet for an exam, blood work and neutering, I agreed to foster him. He has been with me since March 24. A wonderful family found him on the Rescue Me website and came to meet him last night. They fell in love with him, but the mother told me that she had to discuss it with her husband. Less than an hour later, I received a text message that Baxter had a new family and home! He will be living with another dog, a couple of cats, and three children on two acres of land. Just perfect for a one year old with boundless energy! No doubt I will cry when they pick him up on Saturday, but it's the best thing that could have happened to Baxter. I am so pleased he was able to find a family to give him the home and love he deserves.

     We fostered Sierra and had hoped to keep her, but our female Husky didn't like her. We found a wonderful family for Sierra using Rescue Me. The family has a three year old red cattle dog and they plan to take her camping with them. She found just the home that she needed with another playful dog and lots of people to love her.

     Charlie was a pet that was brought in from the shelter with a fractured leg and was going to be euthanized until the doctor requested for the shelter to surrender him to our hospital. The doctor took x-rays and revealed where the fracture was and attempted to correct it with splints but it was not successful. She then decided to fix surgically and that was not possible so the leg was removed. Since January, Charlie has been at the hospital trying to find a home and has been unsuccessful. We posted Charlie on Rescue Me and not even a week later he met his forever home. Thanks Rescue Me!

We posted him on Rescue Me and two days later he found the perfect home with the help of the posting. Over the next two weeks we were able to get Boud out to his new home to live the perfect Cattle Dog life. Boudleaux will always be grateful to Rescue Me for getting him out to the country and into his furever home.

     I have been trying to find Piper a home where she would be happy. She was a rescue and we fostered her. She was a sweet, happy dog who loved everyone and she is good with other animals also. We just couldn't keep here as we are never home and didn't have a big place for her to run. She found her forever home on a big farm. She seems happy and adjusted well. The person who adopted her really loves her breed. I am a selective person and am happy I found this site. Thank you, Rescue Me.

     I have always adopted my pets through shelters, but never searched online before. I first spoke with Kaitlyn on the phone and she was extremely helpful with walking us through the adoption form process. We live two hours away and she made sure all was in order for our visit. When we arrived Codi was so helpful and accommodating in introducing us to the dogs we were interested in meeting. Griffin quickly stole our hearts and it wasn't long before he had a bath and we were on our way home. This was the easiest, friendliest, most pleasant experience we have had when adopting a new family member. Day three of Griffin's transition into our home and he has already begun to settle. He enjoys admiring himself in mirrors. He is a Velcro pup and so interested in all we are doing. He loves investigating all his surroundings and sleeps soundly after our hikes. He has staked claim on the couch and our hearts. Thank you to the staff at the Hill Country SPCA and Rescue Me!!! We love our sweet boy, Griffin. There is a special bond between a human and their cattle dog.

     My cattle dog passed away a year and a half ago at 14 years old. I'd recently been thinking about getting another one. I came across the Rescue Me website by accident, and I am so glad I did. I saw Carlos on your website and reached out the couple that rescued him. Yesterday, I drove across the state to pick him up. The couple drove an hour out of their way to meet me which saved me two hours of driving. They were amazing to work with and Carlos is settling in nicely.

     I was desperate to find the perfect home for an Australian Cattle Dog that I offered to foster for a bogus rescue group. I posted Austin's profile and within three months, I got a call. It may have only been one call, but it truly must have been love at first sight, because the man that came to meet Austin, couldn't have been more of a perfect match for him. Austin is a large, energetic dog, and his new master is super tall and very athletic. Austin skateboards, runs and hikes daily. He's getting more exercise than I could ever provide for him. He spends his weekdays hanging out with his new owner and crew on the job site for the company his new master owns. He is the company mascot! I keep tabs on him regularly - he looks amazing and HAPPY! Thank you so much, Rescue Me, for providing this service for individuals not associated with a rescue group.

     My Pit mix dog died at age 16 about a year ago. I have been looking for an adult dog for walking, hiking, and companionship. I loved my Pit, but needed a more dog friendly breed as I meet all kinds of dogs every day. I was happy to find Henry. I am told this is a very smart breed that needs attention and stimulation to be happy. I am sure he will teach me a few tricks. I appreciate that Rescue Me gives information on temperament. Some sites give only a picture of the animal and little other information. As you know, the look of an animal is not the most important element when choosing a new family member. (Although he is quite handsome). Thank you so much. I look forward to getting Henry after his trip to the vet. Can't wait!

     Our family has a tendency to collect animals in need... We foster them for a bit, help them unlearn negative habits and learn new positive habits. Diamond was a rescue who stole our hearts. She was just four weeks old when she was literally thrown in the garbage with her sisters. We trained them, bottle fed them and found homes for Diamond's sisters, but kept her. The lack of socialization when she was young and not having a mother caused her to be mildly aggressive to dogs and humans (other than those she accepted into her pack). In the three years we have had her, she never let another dog near her, so we didn't worry about getting her spayed. This year she decided she wanted to be a mama. She had four puppies (two females and two males). We kept Bindi, one of the females (the one that looks the most like Diamond). Through Rescue Me we found three amazing families to take the other three puppies. Each of the families has been updating us, sending pictures, and sharing stories about how much they love their new puppies. Diamond is due to be spayed next week, so there will be no more puppies. Thank you Rescue Me for playing a vital role in helping us find furever homes for our sweet pups!

     Ubu was adopted by a couple with another ACD. Her new sister is also deaf! They use sign language with all their dogs, so having a deaf dog is no big deal. They have been sending us videos of her playing in her new back yard. She has a whole acre that is fenced in for the dogs to run around in! They let me know that Ubu is already getting accustom to their routine and has already picked up on the signs that they use! They love her sweet personality and are very impressed by how smart she is! Thank you, Rescue Me, for helping us find such an awesome home for our baby! It is such a relief to see her so happy and adjusting to her new pack!

     I was contacted by a wonderful family the day after I posted Apollo on Rescue Me. The family that came to see him fell in love with him and took him home the same day. I am so happy. I was so concerned we would have to take him to the shelter and he would be euthanized. Great success. Thank you so much!

     Two and a half years ago, one month after burying my 14 year old Cattle Dog, Sammie, I rescued Dingo from 'Rescue Me'. He was nine years old and had lost his owner to death. No one looked at him because it right before the holidays and everyone wanted puppies. I knew I might only be able to give him four or five years, but he deserved to finish his life in a forever home. Thanks to Pilots for Pets, he was flown to a small airport near where I live. Dingo was the most incredible dog ever. He took to me immediately and we were inseparable. Sadly, he developed a tumor. We removed it, but it was bone cancer. He continued to live a happy life with shots and pain medicine until two weeks ago when the cancer erupted again and he went completely paralyzed in the rear section of his body. I stayed with this precious baby while he went to sleep. Although I was grieving badly, I still clicked on the Rescue Me links. I wasn't ready. Then two days ago a sweet, red speckled Australian Cattle dog popped up and unbelievably, she was from where I live. You have to understand, our town is super rural so it's unlikely you'd ever see anything come up here. I contacted the family that had rescued 'Daisy' and again unbelievably they live off the same road as I do only about four miles away. We went to meet Daisy yesterday and again it was love at first sight. She came home last night to her forever home and had acclimated to the home and yard as if she had been here forever. I could never do anything but rescue. Thank you for all you do with your site to help these wonderful companions.

     This sweet little girl was left behind when her owner moved. He had no place to keep her and asked me (a neighbor) to feed her until he could find a new home for her. After three months of his not finding her a new home and showing no concern, I posted here on Rescue Me and within a week she has been adopted by a wonderful lady who has another Australian cattle dog mix. Her fate would have been going to the pound soon. This is a great service for dogs and concerned dog lovers!

     Burns was placed less than a week after we posted - thanks to a combination of word of mouth and the Rescue Me site, interested people who heard from friends and neighbors hit the Rescue Me page and the rest is history. Burns is now with his new family - registered trainers of agility dogs and working dogs and owners of several Aussie shepherd and cattle-dogs already. He assimilated into 'the pack' in hours and is 'bounding toward greatness' as his new family described it. Thanks for the assistance. -Cynthia

     Garth and Paisley's human companion died suddenly and left many of us bereft and at a great loss for how to find a proper, loving forever home for our brother's faithful dog companions. Since Garth and Paisley are a bonded pair, it was absolutely critical that we find them a home together. A friend-of-a-friend helped us get the dogs posted on Rescue Me and the PERFECT family contacted us saying that Garth and Paisley were just what they were looking for for their large ranch home. Rescue Me provided the answers to our prayers, the new family's prayers, and what we believe would be the wishes of our departed brother. We're forever grateful for the great work of Rescue Me.

     I have had several calls regarding Bear. A few of the calls had been just to provide information to help when he needs hip surgery. Yesterday, a man called very interested in Bear. He and his toddler came to meet him. It was love at first sight. He took Bear home. He left me a voice mail letting me know Bear was doing well and he would send me pictures soon. My family and I were very sad to see Bear go. We loved him very much! We knew that he needed more room and attention than we were able to give him and that is why we posted him on Rescue Me. Thanks to all those who I spoke to who gave me help and information.

     Our sweet Tanner got his forever home today, with help from Rescue Me. I had several requests for him from different sites, but the family that adopted Tanner was very well educated on this amazing breed of dog. They were not only WILLING to have a high-energy puppy, but are looking forward to jogging, hikes and him being their newest family member. One of the dearest, most important things to me was said as Tanner was being led away...... 'We just have to be patient' while he adjusts to his new home. I have no doubt that he will be living an enchanted life!

     We adopted Riley, who is a Rotty Blue healer mix. We picked her up on Sunday and love her madly. She is so smart and just wants to be loved and cuddled. She is adjusting very well to our other four legged kids and, since it has only been a few days, this is great. I highly recommend Rescue Me to all my friends. We are very happy to have Riley as a new addition to our home..

     I looked at many dog photos and kept on coming back to our special friend for life. The experience was not only easy but the lady that called me back with his info was very helpful.

     I come from a background of volunteering with Animal Shelters and Rescues so when my husband and I moved into a house that allowed us to have a dog we were intent on adopting. This site has been amazing in helping us track down the perfect dog! We drove about 350 miles to meet Ruger and his owners. They were such a nice couple and we are grateful they choose us to be Rugers' new family. We fell in love with Ruger immediately and he has been loving his new life! We live in a big house in the country and we are right next to a beautiful lake. We are committed to giving Ruger the best life as his new forever home. Thank you Rescue Me for connecting us to our dream dog!

     I posted on Rescue Me two weeks ago and got six phone calls. I did some screening and found a loving family near me to take my dog. I met them today and they were really happy. It was so sad to let him go, but I know now he has a really good family and home where he will go to the dog beach and enjoy the ocean on a daily basis. I am blessed to have found your website. Thanks you so much.

     We tried for over a year to find Charlotte and her siblings a home when Ben and Amy contacted us. Ben had lost his dog of 18 years and after a time had been searching for someone to share his pet love with. After some long chats on the phone I drove her to her new home just blocks from my old job. As Ben and I chatted, I realized that we had a very similar outlook on life and many shared interests. Amy has shared custody of her dog so I knew they were committed to any pet they had. I realized that she might miss some aspects of country life, but as a shy girl she would at last be the center of attention and just what a wonderful life she would have in their care. Her sister and brother are missing her, of course, and haven't been taking their runs to the creek as usual, but we now have hope that they will find homes where they are the center of attention as well. So please take a look at Jimmy and Tinnetta. Thanks so much for your support and help Rescue Me.

     I found, and adopted Molly, a three-legged, nub-tail Blue Heeler through Rescue Me. She's the sweetest dog ever, and in two days has settled in like we've been together for years. She's VERY lovable, even for being a cattle dog! She's got a look that I know is going to make her spoiled, she can melt me with just a glance, of course I am biased, but already I think she is the most beautiful girl there is! She's fast (especially for missing a leg), and loves to play, she's bringing out the young dog in my other dog, Texicali (14+ year old red heeler). I can't believe how lucky I am, and how happy Molly has made me, I know we're going to be best friends and have a lot of fun together. You wouldn't know she's missing a leg, she doesn't miss a beat, and I doubt she notices it's not there! If anything, she misses her tail, she tries to circle-chase it, but there's nothing there! Anyway, I can't express just how lucky and happy I am to have this awesome little girl, she's perfect for me and Texicali (and the cat Smokey!), she's already a natural member of our pack, and has brought so much happiness to our farm! Her foster was awesome, thanks Frannie!

     Daisy was brought to me as an owner surrender, sadly due to her family moving and being unable to keep her. I wanted to help keep Miss Daisy out of a shelter environment, so I brought her home and introduced her to my three dogs and took her to the doggie daycare I work for. She turned out to be a fantastic pup. I interviewed two families, and the first family had a slight hitch come up. Daisy was adopted by a wonderful lady named Brenda and her husband. She now enjoys spending all kinds of time hiking and going through obedience classes. Daisy was my first foster and successful adoption. Huge thanks to Rescue Me for getting her picture out there.
