     Rescue Me! helped me to find a home for two dogs that I rescued. I had no other way of finding a home for these two dogs, but this website helped me get their information out there. It makes me happy to see that they have found great homes with wonderful families. They both came from a home where they were both neglected, and to see how much their lives have changed for the better is incredible. Rescue Me! really helps.

     Rescue Me! assisted us greatly in finding a new home for Trixie. We are thrilled. Unable to sustain her medical bills, we thought it was a hopeless situation with no options. Then I spoke to my coworker who is a foster pet parent, and she told me about Rescue Me! Trixie is a wonderful pet, and though we will miss her, we are confident her new home will be a warm and loving environment and Trixie will do what she does, and that is give love and be an awesome family friend.

     Jack has found a home. My husband and I brought Jack, a 6 year old Westie home today. First stop was at the pet store for high quality food to help correct a skin allergy. Tomorrow we go to the vet for some help with the allergy. We are looking forward to a long happy life. Smithy, our 17-year old cat welcomed him home. Everyone is happy. Pets are our important members of our family. Thank you Rescue Me!, and the family who cared enough to list him on Rescue Me! rather take him to a shelter where the outcome may not have been so good.

     I'm so happy to report that a lovely couple drove four hours to adopt our little blind/deaf Westie yesterday. She has multiple issues, and miraculously went right to both wife and husband! My husband has been very ill, hospitalized seventeen days altogether, and has had numerous doctor visits plus infusion sessions every day for six weeks. It was becoming more and more impossible for me to attend to her like I wanted to. I myself am 72 years old with walking issues of my own, so my prayers were answered thanks to your wonderful website! I can't thank you enough for being there for all concerned: yours truly, our Westie girl, and the wonderful people who so lovingly took her into their home. God bless!

     Mickey has found his forever home! The decision to put Mickey up for adoption was not an easy one, but Rescue Me! made finding Mickey the home he deserved so much easier. I didn't think anyone was going to want a senior dog, but wow... we had so many positive responses, it was a hard to decide who was going to adopt him. We made our decision on what was best for Mickey. I want to thank Rescue Me! for all the information on finding a good home and having a site that has the dogs best interest at heart. Thank you!

     I found a great home for Turbo. I feel he will do well. He has been lonely with no one home to keep him company, and now he has a lot of company. I also believe he will get the help he deserves with his spine problem, in his new home. Thank you for helping him and myself.

     I had put my Westie, Lootie, up for adoption on this site. Within hours there were many inquiries about him. Everyone seemed wonderful, but I selected a couple who had recently lost a Westie to an illness. We arranged to meet and although their home was 40 miles or so from mine, I was so glad that I went. They were a loving, caring couple and it was love at first sight for everyone. We arranged to go home and think on it while things were checked out like vet, etc. and to carry out our adoption if all went well. To make a long story short, Lootie is one happy dog in his new home, and his adoptive parents have emailed me with notes and pictures. This has been such a positive experience. Thank you, Rescue Me's Westie Rescue. Jan Rutenberg

     I have used the Rescue Me! site for customers that needed to rehome their companions because their lives had changed unexpectedly. This has been an invaluable and immediate resource. I helped the owners of two pure breed dogs that needed to be removed from the home quickly, and both received overwhelming responses and were placed within days of posting. I volunteer for the Humane Society, and am grateful for other adoption nonprofits, but when you can place a dog directly to a good home it is the best option. Thank you, Rescue Me!, and all the wonderful people that are waiting to take on perfectly good companions. Linda Hilger, Complete Canine Companion, Charlotte, NC

     I am very thankful for Rescue Me! Within hours of posting Jazzie I received several inquiries. I am happy to say that Jazzie now has a younger brother (Snowy, who is also a Westie) and a loving family to love and care for him. His new home is not far, and I will stay in touch with his new family to see how he is doing. I am comforted knowing that he will be in a loving home, and now has a brother to hang out with each day. I definitely recommend Rescue Me to anyone who for whatever reason is unable to keep their pet, and is looking for a home where they will know that he/she is truly loved. Thank you so very much Rescue Me !

     Since my job requirements have changed and I travel every week, I had to find Bella a new home where she could get the love and attention she needs. Within 24 hours of posting her, after interviewing 7-10 prospective families, I have found the perfect family. Bella loves children and outdoors and she will have both with her new family. Thank you Rescue Me for finding my Westie a home!!

     I thank Rescue Me very much for assisting me in finding a loving home for Misty. Misty is a 11 year old Westie in very good health. Even though I did not post a picture I received about 10 inquires in about two days and selected a home a week later. I selected three homes to visit and was impressed by the care she would received in all three locations. I selected a family that made her feel right at home the most and had lost a 18 year old Westie last summer.

     Our Northwood Veterinary Hospital met Bo, an 8 yr old male Westie, in June of 2012. We knew he was sweet, loving, and may need a home in the future. Sure enough, he came to us again in late September. We took ownership of Bo and began our quest in finding him a new home. I'm not sure how I stumbled on the Rescue Me! website but I am sure glad I did. Within hours of posting Bo on the site, the phone calls and emails started coming in. Two families certainly stood out as great possibilities and were relatively close to Springfield, Ohio. The first family who was able to meet Bo adopted him Saturday October 15th. They too have an 8 yr old female Westie named Orly. Bo and Orly did a meet and greet for an hour and they decided they wanted to take Bo to his new home in Cincinnati, Ohio. Seems Bo is settling in very well, has been to a pumpkin patch, the dog park, and has already had his picture taken numerous times! I am unable to post a picture with this success story, but again, thank you for the opportunity you provide people with this rescue site. It is awesome! Vicie

     I placed my little Westie, Angus, on this site and he was immediately loved by everyone who saw him. A lovely couple in Michigan adopted Angus and he is off to his new home. Thank you Susan and Don!

     The success story is that we are keeping him. We had a family that wanted him but found that he wasn't the right dog for them. We have worked harder to get the dog and kitten relationship to work. It took 3 months but we have almost harmony. In that time the kitten has grown and can cohabitate with Jesse. Jesse is on strong meds for his skin issues but he's coming along. Everything worked out for the best and we have peace and a great dog and kitten. Thank you for your site at the time my relationship with my daughter was strained because she was worried about Jesse harming the kitten. So along with saving animals you save relationships too.

     Thank you for wanting to adopt Benny. I had 3 inquiries within hours and have selected a new home/owner for Benny Boy. I sure will miss this little guy but I want him to be a happy dog in a great home. We have success! Good luck to all those folks searching for a new pet. God Bless you and all Gods little creatures waiting for new homes. Good night.

     I put Louie on your site last night and received an email within an hour. Today I had four more inquiries, and all of them were serious. This afternoon Louie went home with Jim and Sue (the first couple that contacted me). Jim's retired and looking for a play mate to share yard work with. I think it will be an excellent fit, and although I miss Louie terribly, I think he is in an environment that best suits his needs. I was very pleased with the service, and I will be sending a donation to this wonderful organization.

     This is a bitter-sweet occasion for my family. We will miss Kattie dearly, however, Kattie found a good home and true love. Yes, our 12 year old Westie found a new home with a kind and compassionate woman named Jackie and a companion, a male dog (another Westie) named Zerus. Today, St. Patrick's Day, we met Jackie in Columbus and gave Kattie to her. After Kattie met Zerus, and after they were found to be very compatible, Jackie took them to a doggie park near her home. She send us a picture. The two dogs looked very cute and happy together. I would like to thank Jackie for giving Kattie a good new home and a new companion that she can grow old with! Regards, Tina

     Jocko did find a new home, and very quickly. Your website was very helpful in finding someone who understood the kind of health problems that Westies might have, know how to deal with them & are willing to do so. There are a lot of people out there with big hearts, ready to rescue these cute little dogs. Thank you for your help also. Sharon

     Yes we did find someone to adopt coconut. A very nice family with children, makes us very happy. Although it was very hard to see her go. I could not believe the response we got on coconut. Their are a lot of good people out there and a few, well I wont say. But thanks to rescue me we found a good home for coconut. Thank you again.

     Molly was adopted on Saturday. I certainly did not know where to turn trying to re-home my Westie. I was never planning this action, but due to my family situation, it was the only fair thing to do. The thought of Molly living in a crate most of the time was nothing short of cruelty. The responses I received were amazing. Most were truly compassionate people....some were just curious. I took some time to research/talk to the family I finally picked. Thanks so much for your site. I hope everyone using it finds success. Yes I will send a donation.

     Grear did find a new and wonderful home and is very happy and loved there. I am grateful for your site as I know only people who truly want to care for and love a dog will go to the trouble to find them on the internet as compared to listing them for free on some newspaper, you never know who might impulsively want my beloved pet. Thank you.


Sender: Crystal Novinger     Date: August 13, 2011 _
     I found using Rescue Me very helpful. I wanted to find someone that was looking specifically for a Westie. I got many responses from people, it made the adoption process much easier than having to put out flyers and place ads all over the place. Thank you for your help. Because of Rescue Me.org I was able to find a wonderful family for Yuki. Sincerely, Crystal
