     My family found an amazing angel we named 'Sammi' (American bulldog). Someone obviously had abandoned her. She was malnourished with frostbitten feet. Sammi, through all she had endured, had an amazing love for humans, especially children. Sadly, Sammi and my pit bull did not get along, so I posted Sammi on Rescue Me. The very next day, I got a call from Christine, another angel on earth. Sammi is now with her loving family, which by the way includes two little girls! This couldn't have been a more perfect fit for Sammi and the amazing family that has her!

     I had a few inquiries about Max but when I spoke to Max's new daddy, I knew right away he was a perfect fit. Max now lives in a different city and the family is perfect for him. He is happy and healthy and even Max felt comfortable right away with his new family. Awesome! Thanks, Rescue Me.

     I like to thank Rescue Me for giving our precious Rocco a chance to live! Due to my mother's illness, he was not getting the attention and love he deserved.. And mom even consider taking him to the pound. I of course refused to have him put in that risky position of getting euthanized, so I prayed about it and asked my apartment manager to allow him to live with me until a family can adopt him. In a matter of few days, I got a response about Rocco. Many potential families... At the end, though, two weeks into him being on Rescue Me I believe with all my heart that GOD sent the right family for Rocco. Thank you, Mr. Ron and Patty. If you read this post, please give Rocco lots kisses and big hugs from me! GOD bless you for taking him into your home.

     Uriel was one of a litter of eight rescue puppies that my husband and I took in. We had several dead and inquiries, but was soon contacted by a very sincere couple over an hour away who cared enough about this angel to cooperate with my concerned requirements of adoption, and drove over an hour on their little boy's birthday to adopt Uriel. They brought their other dog, per my request, to make sure the fit was appropriate. I was very pleased that he had his dog for 15 years and counting. It is such a joy to find a family like this for a puppy that may have died prior to his rescue. He is such a doll baby, and I couldn't be more pleased!! Thank you, Rescue Me!!

     Very happy tails to this 4-year old American Bulldog CHLOE, who captured the heart of a breed-experienced adopter through posts on social media sites. She trudged through the rain storm and an eight hour drive to meet CHLOE, and it was love at first sight. CHLOE will be with her new owner 24/7 and will be going on many road trips together. Staff and volunteers are thrilled that this great dog found her forever home. Happy Tails to CHLOE !

     I saw Petey on Rescue Me. He was emaciated and had been living in a filthy cage for who knows how long. Hillside SPCA rescued Petey, a female and her puppies. After emails and phone calls, I drove my two dogs, husband, and me to meet Petey. In the week that he was at the shelter, he looked 150% better. We brought him home on a Thursday. By Thursday night, the other dogs had taught him that outside was for the bathroom and the house for his home. He now plays with his 'older brother' whenever possible, such as right now. The other dogs have accepted him into the family and Petey is a happy young dog. He understands the word NO, and has learned the boundaries of the invisible fence, so he now has the run of the yard. Thank you, Rescue Me, for the chance to add a third dog to our family.

     Rescue Me was an answer to a prayer. Had some reservations about posting such a special friend and family member, but those fears were put to rest when an amazing family contacted us. They gave us information to verify about them so we could insure our beautiful boy was going to be taken care of, loved, and become part of their family. They even traveled several hours just to meet with us and our boy. They now have adopted themselves a wonderful Furbaby. Without Rescue Me, we wouldn't of had the response that we did in re-homing our boy. Thank you adopters and Rescue Me.

     Fat Boy or Milo as he is now called by his new loving family found a great home. He was spotted on Rescue Me and looked like the dog they had loved and lost. He is his own dog in their home now and has blended in making friends with their Boston Terrier female. Both are neutered, not to worry. Thank God for Rescue Me and I encourage everyone that can hold on as long as I did not to lose hope.

     Thank you, Rescue Me. Annabell found a new home with a family who owned other bulldogs, know the breed and love them. I was apprehensive because she was so territorial around myself and my boys. When the man came together, I was just praying for a smooth transition. He pulled up to our home, I walked Annabell over by him (cautiously) and she acted like they were old friends, climbed right in his truck and lay down. That helped with having to find a new home for her. We really loved that dog, but she was seriously needing more room, more time than I had to dedicate to her with our schedule and health issues that seem to be multiplying. Thank you for your service!

     I loved having the rescue alerts. There are so many beautiful American Bulldogs that come through here and wish I could have them all. I've been looking since late last summer. I saw this little girl and immediately contacted her owner. He replied right away. I told him about ourselves and our pets, and that we had a 1/2 acre lot for her to run around in. He agreed to meet halfway. He did have others interested, but had promised us and worked out a place and time. This gentleman was fantastic. What he wanted was a good home for her, and we will give it to her. We are so happy with our new addition to our family. Thanks to Rescue Me's American Bulldog Rescue. Lola

     Thank You so much, Rescue Me! I had posted Gray on other sites but it was not until I posted him on Rescue Me! that I received calls and e-mails from people who really love dogs and other animals. Gray has found his forever home with a nice stable family who is committed to keeping him for the rest of his life. I was so worried about his future before I posted him on Rescue Me!, but now I know he will always have a good loving home with people who love and want him. Again, thank you Rescue Me!, for uniting homeless animals with loving homes. I plan on becoming a consistent donator to your program as I want to help ensure that other needy animals can help find loving homes. Your program facilitates those connections, and helps animals that really need help. Sincerely, Kathy

     Thank you for your services, Rescue Me!, you helped in finding Tiny Paco a good, loving and happy home. These days it's so hard and rare to find free services that are more interested in helping out the animals than the money. It is important to help support this kind of mission in an effort to keep these free services alive and well by a simple donation. Even one dollar from each generous pocket helps, so don't let that stop anyone from donating. Please continue the great effort and work.

     Otis was adopted by a wonderful, young family yesterday! It was pretty difficult for me to let him go, but I had been talking to his new mom and felt she was such a sweet person. It really made a difference to me when she told me more about her family. 'There's kids. Awesome. Otis loves kids,' I thought to myself. I started to get excited for Otis. I imagined all the hugs and kisses he would get, and how much love he could show this new family. I was still a little sad, though, because I love Otis so much and I knew it was gonna be hard to see him go. I just knew that I had back surgery coming up and wouldn't be able to take care of him the way I knew he deserved. I knew that it was the right thing, just not the easiest thing in the world. I was also comforted by the fact that the family I was talking to was much like mine. I began to think, 'Now this is starting to sound like the perfect family for Otis!' I decided it was time for a meeting. That's what ended up sealing the deal. I took Otis to meet his new dad, and when I saw how Otis was instantly so very happy to meet him, and how nice and what a genuinely good person his new dad was, I was positive Otis would have more than enough love and fun times with his new family. It all just seemed to fall right into place, and I am extra grateful to have met such a wonderful new family for my sweet little boy, Otis.

     My family had Wrigley since March and had been working with her on socialization. She is a good dog and needed someone with no other animals that could show her all the love and affection she needed. This last week Sgt. Cody contacted us stating that he was disabled military and had an American Bulldog before that had passed due to age. After a background check and taking Wrigley to meet him on his farm, the two were instant friends. While my family and lone dog are sad to see her go, we are complete thrilled that she is making someone else totally happy, who is there to make her totally happy. Thank you so much!

     I couldn't be happier with the help we received for our beloved Jayden. A wonderful family who we meet through your website contacted me and we met with one of his Bulldogs to see if he and Jayden would be compatible. I'm happy to say they Jayden and the entire family really hit it off. They are experienced Bulldog owners. They live on a five acre farm that is totally fenced. They even have a doggie door which I had hoped for, and feed their dogs the same food. It was truly a match made in heaven. In fact, it was an answer to prayer. I was thrilled when I saw that you have already been responsible for the adoption of over a thousand other American Bulldogs. They are a special breed but not everyone understands how loving they are when they are with the right people. Thank you Jeremiah and your family for giving our sweet girl such a wonderful home!

     I have been looking for a pet because my dog passed away in September 2012. My sister-in-law suggested I try 'Rescue Me!' because she knew that others had success. Since April I had found several that I wanted to adopt. I got responses from six people. One was not a match and four others were adopted before my request was sent in. Adoptions seem to go rather quickly, which is a good thing. With Bella, as soon as she was posted I e-mailed the owner, and within two days we were a family. She's very friendly and energetic, and with a little training she'll do fine. She's cute as a button and her previous owner was a delight to work with. Thank you for having this site. It's a great service to pets who need a forever home.

     Thank you for allowing me to post my rescued American Bulldog Luna. Thanks to Rescue Me!, we reached a broader number of people, and were able to find Luna the perfect home. She was adopted by a family who understands the emotional intelligence of the breed, and is willing to put in the time it takes to care for a large breed rescue dog. I have rescued and homed many dogs, and each is special in their own way. I got a picture of Luna snuggling in a lounge chair with the young daughter of her new family. That is where she wants to be, in the middle of a lot of love. All it takes is one person, and they can change the world of a special animal.

     After returning to work this year my 110 lb. American Bulldog, Maggie Mae, began acting out. She was lonely and needed someone to spend a lot of time with her. I found Rescue Me! online and liked what I saw, so decided to give it a shot. About two weeks later I received an email from an interested party. She was in a kennel from 6am to 6pm and that wasn't fair to her. She needed a home where she could run and play and get the human interaction she was desperately craving. So, I called the gentleman back and he was thrilled to have the opportunity to adopt her. We exchanged a lot of information... I needed to know this was a good fit for both Maggie Mae and for his family, she is a big girl and not everyone is cut out to handle such a large breed. Well, as it turns out it has been a perfect fit! She has been with her new family for a little over one week now. She's happy and her new owner says, 'I'm in love!' and 'She gets a lot of compliments!' She is with him 24/7. She goes everywhere with him... work, shop, store, park, running. They are so thrilled to have her and I am so thankful she has found such a loving home to call her forever home. Thank you Edwin, and thank you Rescue Me!, for making this all possible!

     Thank you to Rescue Me! We were able to find Batman a wonderful home in less than a week. I am sure he will be happy, as well as his new owners. We look forward to updates as he grows, and all the memories he shares with the new family.

     Thank you so much for the Rescue Me! website. I foster bully breeds, and within 1-week of posting him on your website he found a loving fur-ever home. We work hard to save and rescue animals, and with a website like this one we can find great homes quickly. And that helps fosters and rescue groups save more lives!

     Jonathan and I are grateful for all the hard work that was done before we adopted not one, but two rescue puppies. Oreo was adopted by us first and our hearts were so touched by what the foster parents (Holly & Justin) did with taking care of Oreo that we drove back to their home (2 1/2 hour trip one way) to adopt Oreo's brother, Flash. Both are beautiful, American Bulldog mixes. The joy we observed by bringing them back together was amazing to watch! Jonathan and I are very happy we adopted these puppies, and look forward to years of fun, adventure, and love! Thank you, Rescue Me!, and a big thanks to Holly & Justin for bringing joy in our lives! Best regards, Jonathan & Mike

     I cannot express my gratitude enough for Rescue Me! I read the other 'success' stories about finding homes for their rescues within hours of posting to Rescue Me! and thought they had to be paid testimonials! I WAS WRONG! Literally, 7 hours after posting Petey I received the first (of many) emails inquiring about him. Though the first family did not work out, we had so many interested that we just had to start interviews with other families immediately. After having Petey for a total of 11 days, hundreds in vet bills, and 8 days on Rescue Me!, Petey's new family drove 4 hours to come take him to his furever home! I received an email with photos of him and his new family today and he is HOME! He has adjusted well and is exactly where he is supposed to be!! Thank you so much, Jeff, for your compassion and initiative to start such a wonderful organization like Rescue Me! I only wish I could do as much as you have for all of the homeless dogs, and animals, out there! Thank you again for helping my family to find such a wonderful home for Petey!

     After 7 years of having no dog, I was finally ready to get a lifelong companion (other than my husband). I decided on the type of dog I wanted, and that I would obtain the dog from the humane society or a rescue organization. I found a prospect from the local humane society, but decided to search for a rescue organization. So while searching the Internet I found Rescue Me... But did not find the exact type of dog I wanted locally. Since I border another state, I decided to widen my search to the bordering state. I scanned the photos, and shortly found the 'man of my dreams!' Oreo was an American bulldog mix and the most beautiful dog! A perfect match! I communicated with the rescue family for several days and she (Holly) was a phenomenal person inside and out who further made it apparent that Oreo was the dog for me. After me and my husband drove 2 1/2 hrs to pick him up from the perfect rescue couple (Holly & Justin), we now have Oreo home with us and he has made our lives better already! Thank you, Rescue Me!, for all you do to bring joy to all of us!

     Only a short time after we posted Bruno's picture, a kind lady e-mailed us that she was interested in giving Bruno a forever home. After talking to her we couldn't believe how kind she sounded -- the perfect answer to our prayer. We both drove over one hundred miles to meet at McDonald's and exchange passengers. She let us know how well Bruno was doing in his new home. She promised she would spoil him rotten. This dog had been abused and deserved a loving home. We had him neutered and shots, etc. Glad to do it to make Bruno more adoptable. It worked!!! Thanks for the Rescue Me! Without your help, we could never found Bruno such a good home. We will send a donation to help you continue your work.

     We were very satisfied that a young lady drove from Kansas, 4 hours away from our home, just to come meet our Lucy. She had her dog meet Lucy, too. After two hours of introductions it was decided that Lucy was to have a new home and we were all very happy with the outcome. Lucy will have a new large area for running around in, a sister dog to run with, and she will have two teenagers to play with or be played with. Lucy seemed to love the idea and was happy to get in the car and take her assigned seat in the back seat and have the window down a bit so she could smell her way to her new home. If it were not for Rescue Me!, we were looking at having to put Lucy in a local pound, and if she had not been adopted she would have been euthanized. We are so thankful that Lucy has a new home we hope is giving many hours of pleasure to her new family. Thank You!!!!!!

     Artie had been on Rescue Me! a few weeks with a couple inquiries. Then we changed his picture - what a difference it made! We suddenly received 10 inquiries in a span of 5 days. We got to select the best possible match for Artie's forever home. Don't give up, put a cute 'smiling' picture and there is a home for everyone.

     Thank you Rescue Me! for helping me find my bully a new home! My personal circumstances had changed and I could no longer give him the kind of life he deserved so I found this site... I had several very high quality responses, and I'm so happy about the family that adopted him! He went to a happy home, and I know he will have a happy life with a family who will love him! This was such a better way than other avenues I might have chosen. Thanks again!

     Thank you for Rescue Me! Zeus was listed less then 24 hrs when I received our 1st call from Paul and his wife. All we wanted was Zeus to have a wonderful new family to give him a happy life, all we had was love and sometimes that isn't enough. Did it break our hearts - yes it has. We had to give one of our family members away for several reasons, not a yard big enough, house too small, loss of income, and love just wasn't enough Zeus needed more and my family and Zeus believes we made the right choice thanks to Rescue Me! I called other rescue centers that didn't want to help me because they thought our dog was a Pit Bull. He's an American Bulldog, but even if he was a Pit Bull, if you run a rescue then you should RESCUE ALL!! No matter what... these poor Animals are they all need love, caring, and sharing a part of life. My Daughter got this Beautiful dog without thinking he really needs 'more than love.' Don't take a animal if you can't do all the things that it needs, and it will need more thean Love... and Im glad Paul and his wife can share that with our Zeus... we will always love you Zeus!

     Rescue Me! was a blessing!! Angel was found just skin and bones on the side of the road left to die... she was taken in and between myself and a group of ladies she was brought back to healthy, brought up to date on shots, and fixed. She was living with me until I could find her a home, but she laughed at my chain-link fence! She didn't want to stay in the fence at all, so I turned to Rescue Me! as well as a few other social media outlets. It was Rescue Me! where Angel's new dad found her!!!! And now she will be trained to be his service dog, family member, and loyal companion!! I'm so proud of her and all that she has fought through to now become someones hero! All thanks due to Rescue Me! AND Healing 4 Heros!!!!

     I am truly happy that I found this service. I was able to find a suitable new home for my American Bulldog, Rudy within a very short period of time. The family that took in Rudy were previous bulldog owners and a very loving family. Rudy needed to be placed in a single dog home with a loving attentive family and he was because of this service. I feel blessed to have found this service in a time of need. I pray that my boy has a wonderful life with his new family. He deserves the best. I will miss him terribly but I know he is in a better environment for him.

     I live in Indiana and saw this beautiful American Bulldog online in a shelter in Arizona. One look at his face and I knew I had to get him out and to Indiana. On New Years eve of 2010 he arrived by transport and a few days later taken to my vet for a complete check-up and neuter. I was hoping he would fit in with my other dogs but sadly that wasn't the case. Hank needed a home where he was the only dog and could have all the attention he deserved. After months of trying to place him in a good home I decided to put him on Rescue Me. It took awhile but finally received an email from a woman in Rhode Island who fell in love with the same face I did. He is on his way tonight to his new home and new mama and I'm so happy for him and her. I will always love Hank and he will hold a special place in my heart as does the woman who adopted him to give him a great life . Thank you Rescue Me for making Hank's journey have a happy ending :)

     Buddy was left at my house by a friend of a friend who asked if I could just keep him until he found a home. They never found one. That's when I found Rescue Me on the web. It took about a month but Buddy has found a great home with a retired couple who had previously had an American Bulldog. They drove all they way from TN to NC to get him. I am very happy he found a home with someone who really wanted him. I think he will be very happy. Thanks Rescue Me. Buddy and I really appreciate you.
