     This was a wonderfully helpful site. It was easy to navigate, very good at keeping me updated and informed, and worked quickly. Scruffy found a new home in less than 24 hours. He and the new owners are very happy together. I would instantly use Rescue Me again.

     We found Cooper on the road one afternoon, and managed to locate his owner, who no longer wanted him. He had been a present for the grandkids. They soon lost interest, and Cooper had been roaming the streets for the last 18 months. This poor guy was eaten up with fleas. He had stripped the hair off his back, hind end and belly because of the itching. He was thin and filthy. We took him straight to the vet, and learned that he was only two and a half years old. He just LOOKED old. We posted him on Rescue Me, and had a couple of emails within a day. Then a phone call from a professor at a local university resulted in an in-person visit. The prof and his wife paid for all of Cooper's vetting (a happy surprise!) and picked him up a few days later. Cooper will have a Scottie 'brother' and a farmette to play on. We hope to see pics of him, all healed up and happy!

     Thank you, Rescue Me! Although it took us time to find our next baby, we finally did working with Missy's Canine Haven. The team of ladies who rescue these babies are truly amazing. We love our little guy! We have only had him three days, he will be a member of our family for the rest of his life!

     My adoption of 'Bandit' was much easier than I imagined it would be. My and Bandits savior, Nicole, posted him on Rescue Me. I got the alert the evening that Bandit was up for adoption because they had no where without dogs and kids. Bandit's owner died. The daughter drove him to their home, but the family was not able to blend him in. I contacted his adopted parents and said Ill drive across the state to rescue Bandit. I met his folks halfway across the state and it was an immediate success. He shows us his affection and he's happy as a clam. He whimpered once when Nicole and her husband left, but that was it. He was genuinely appreciated all the attention. Bandit's separation anxiety has not been evident. Now the weird side. My Shih Tzu died in Febuary; his name was Bandit same as my rescued furbaby. His Dad's name was Larry; he died a few weeks ago, My name is Larry I found Bandit the night the alert came up. Nicole the adopted Mom was very happy for Bandit. I caught up on my bills and was kind of broke till payday. I had enough to rescue this great little dog. He is very mannered and rather quiet, but he is playing. His forever home is here. I'm sure Nicole's Dad, Larry would approve. A true success story for this little dog!

     My dog was on Rescue Me without a photo for almost a week with no real response. Two days after posting a photo, he was adopted by a young family who immediately took him to the groomer and contacted his vet. I am very happy for him and his new family. I was not able to give him the care he needed and deserved.

     Rescue Me helped find Cooper an amazing family. He is surrounded by love from all sides due to going to a home with not only a new mom and dad, but with three siblings to keep him on his toes. I hated to let him go, however, knowing that he was going to a home that fit his personality so well, eased my spirit tremendously. This was made possible by Rescue Me!!!

     Tye was adopted by a Shih TZU rescue shelter. They will take care of all his medical and grooming needs. I was informed that many inquiries were made to adopt him. The rescue place will notify me when it happens. The experience of getting him recognized on Rescue Me was awesome. Everything happened within a week after I posted his information on this site. All of the inquiries were sincere and I know Tye is being well taken care of.

     I have truly been blessed. I was so worried about finding a place for my baby, Kofi. Because of his medical issue, I knew he could not travel with me next year. I didn't know what I was going to do, I just couldn't put him in a shelter, but yet I wanted to leave the area. I was in the process of moving to a new place for Kofi and me when, through Rescue Me, I met the best couple. They had a 16 year old dog they had adopted when he was ten and were willing to take Kofi. Kofi fell in love immediately with his new dad, I will admit I was just a bit jealous. While I was packing I decided to let Kofi spend a few days with his future family. I received photo after photo of Kofi going to brunch, Kofi at a cookout, Kofi eating on the deck and just having a really good time. I was moving to a condo in the heart of the city with no yard. It was clear to me that the family wanted to keep Kofi so I made the difficult decision to give him up now. I just received photos of Kofi and his brother Sherlock in a stroller listening to cellist play and later sleeping together. I feel like my dog has won the Lottery, I miss him so much, but he clearly is having the time of his life. I tell my friends I 'want to pull a Kofi' find people who want to do nothing but spoil me and give me a lot of love.

     Rescue Me was so helpful in finding a home for this sweet boy! I had numerous requests and found it difficult to choose! He was adopted by a rescue organization who planned to have him neutered before he goes to his forever home. I know this organization will take excellent care of him.

     I had such a positive experience with your website that I wanted to write and thank you for the valuable service you provide for animals and their people. I first became aware of a Shih Tzu in my neighborhood about a month ago. I could hear it barking fit fully every evening, and it would continue into the night. Finally, I walked down the hill to investigate. The backyard where the sound was coming from being pitch black; I knocked on the front door. My neighbor told me that the dog had been left there by his niece, who didn't want her. The dog was four months old, and barked because they didn't let her inside. After meeting the dog, I asked if he would be willing to let me find her a home, and he readily agreed. I found your website that night and posted the puppy and her situation immediately, expecting a fairly drawn-out process. However, I was thrilled with the immediate response I received. The next day I was swamped with calls and emails from people across the country who were interested in adopting this lonely puppy. It was fantastic! Over the next 12 hours, I met many kind folks - animal people are the best - and through Rescue Me, was able to find this dog a wonderful, loving home in my area, all within 24 hours of the initial post! Your volunteers were great at communication and support, and I want to thank you all very, very much!

     Thank you so very much for this website!!! After having my baby boy, it was extremely difficult to continue providing care for Bailey. I struggled with using a shelter to find him a home. I'm so glad I didn't give up on finding a family to make the transition easy. Rescue Me allowed me to locate Bailey a new home within HOURS close to my location. His new family is GREAT, and I know they'll be lifelong friends of my family. I truly feel blessed to know great people like his adopted family still exist in this crazy world we live in. I will recommend your services to more people who cross my path and need assistance with their furry animals. God Bless and thanks again!!!

     I posted a dog found on Rescue Me. She was in decent shape, but older and needed some medical care. She was very, very sweet. I tried to find her owners to no avail. No chip, no collar, no tags and no signs of someone looking for her. I posted her here and was quickly contacted by a very nice lady who was looking for a dog just like her. Within a day, we met for a meet and greet. She seems like a very responsible pet owner. This little dog left my house today in her new leash, harness and seat belt to go to her new home with her new found brother. It all worked out for the best. I know this little one is in good hands.

     Excellent people all caring and looking for a family pet. Many choices but only one Bella. We did the home visit which was important to us to find the perfect fit. The people were completely understanding that we loved our pet, but needed her to go with another family. She was adopted by a lovely couple within a week. They also offered to send updates and email pictures, which makes the transition easier for my daughter. Thank you, Rescue Me.

     We are thrilled to have Molly as part of our family. She is such a good Shih Tzu and learning her new surroundings. We had been looking for several months when Molly appeared on Rescue Me and I knew she would be the dog for me. She is learning the neighborhood on our daily walks and have taken her to meet her Golden Retriever cousins. She enjoyed playing with them. There is nothing more rewarding than rescuing a dog that faces an unknown future. We thank the owner and the good friend who made this all possible for Molly and us.

     Amazing experience! I needed my dog adopted asap and only to the perfect couple. Within less than an hour, I got a call and told them ALL about my dog, faults and all. They were not deterred and explained they intended to use a trainer and obedience school. They came and met him the next day and it was a perfect match!!!!! I know he's in a wonderful home instead of a shelter! Nothing can beat the feeling of knowing where your dog is going and that he will be okay, happy, and loved!! Thank you, Rescue Me.

     Thank you so much for Rescue Me! My nine year old Lhasa/Schnauzer mix, Grayson, just lost his best Shihtzu buddy to cancer two weeks ago, and it has been a very sad time for both of us. When I was told that Grayson howled all day while I was at work I knew that he needed a canine buddy sooner rather than later. He has never been alone before. We found several good candidates on Rescue Me and we went to meet them at a small shelter. Grayson seemed to get along best with Hershey, so after several visits he came home with us. So far things are going well. Hopefully we will train Hershey to become a pet therapy visitation dog at nursing homes, which is what Grayson and his buddy did together for years. Rescue Me made the search so much easier.

     I was lucky enough to adopt Cubby and he is now the loves of our lives. He's still a little shy and my other little Shih Tzu is trying to make friends with him, but at the moment, he's playing hard to get. He is attached to me at the hip and I love it. He looks very much like my 16 year Shih Tzu that I unfortunately lost this summer. He is a blessing. Thank you, Rescue Me.

     Thank you, Rescue Me. Gracie, a Shitzu mix was adopted by a lovely lady. It was love at first sight. Gracie is very shy and is intimidated. For this reason she had a couple of failed fosters. Her new mom is retired, and Gracie will be the only fur baby. She has a fenced yard and is putting in a doggy door. She has a car seat for safe travel. Gracie is learning to enjoy her new mom and home. She will be greatly missed by her foster mom and other fur baby friends. Love you Gracie. God bless you and your new mom.

     My son was driving a country road where we live, and found this cute, little, neglected Shih Tzu male. He brought him home, and after a week in our unused dog pen, (I hadn't known what to do to find him a home), my neighbor suggested Rescue Me. Within less than a day, I found him an awesome home. These people really love this breed, and had lost their beloved male a couple of weeks before due to illness. What an answer to prayers! Thank you so much for the work you do!!

     My friends (we are all senior citizens) wanted a little girl doggie for a companion to their little poodle, a rescue dog.. I have been looking for over a year for a dog for them. We saw one last week and when I called she was adopted that day. My friend said it doesn't have to be a poodle it can be a Shih-Tzu. I came back to Rescue Me and little Missy's picture said I'm waiting for you. I sent her picture to my friends and they said, 'yes make it happen.' I got in touch with the owner and she is wonderful, pleasant and loving lady. We met and Missy is awesome, she settled right in. We can't find a thing wrong with her. She is well behaved, housebroken, loves to play... A little loveable doll baby. She is definitely a diamond. She will never want for anything.. Both dogs are getting along, and are loving to each other. Barbara, the owner, was wonderful to work with.. Thank you Barbara.

     Have you ever heard of fate? Well, that is exactly what happened, fate. This senior was on the EU list. The owner dumped him, and he was about to be put down. He is eight to ten years old. Holly, a friend and fellow rescue person, told me about him and asked if I knew anyone wanting to adopt him. I said let me see what I can do. Time was running out and the transport was leaving at 6:00 AM. Before I went to bed, I looked and there it was, my answer to save this dog. Lynn said I have been looking for a senior Shih Tzu. Her dog is now 13 years old and going blind, and needs a buddy. I called her, and it is a PERFECT MATCH! The funny part is she had never before been on the Rescue Me site, and she did not know what drew her to it. As soon as she saw him, she said that is the dog I want. The next funny part is the transport driver was to leave at 6:00 AM, but her phone went black and she did not wake up in time. She called everyone to make sure she did not leave, because she had to go buy a new cell phone. Because of that, she picked up the Shih Tzu, and he is now headed on the transport to his new forever home. God is good. He had a plan for this dog and Lynn was it! The broken phone played a part in saving this little Shih Tzu's life. I love happy endings!

Rescue Me was the perfect site for me to put her on as I was able to find out a lot about potential adopters via email and phone calls that were coming in in abundance to adopt her. I finally set in with an older couple. It was a great fit. Thank you Rescue Me for making this possible. I miss her like the dickens, but it was better that she goes with a loving family that would give her a stable environment to grow up in.

     I posted little Booker on Rescue Me and a week later he was adopted by a very nice couple. The experience was incredibly stress free and I felt great about letting Booker go to his new home to make another family happy. Don't get me wrong, I started receiving requests for Booker no more than two hours after posting his pic, but I had to know for sure that he was going somewhere great. I had the opportunity to basically grill those wanting information about him and until I was comfortable with what they had to say about my puppy's future, I wasn't having it. Great site!

     Brandy was rescued from the floods. They were putting dogs down as fast as they came in, so I decided to help, She had so many replies for adoption that it simply made it hard to make the right choice. But I held back and waited for that right one for her personality and it worked because Barb came with her friend and she loved her. She said she just made her day, as her dog and husband had just passed away and she so needed a new buddy to be with her lonely days, So happily they both are now, thanks you, Rescue Me, for this great site that helps find the dogs in need great forever homes.

     I found this little guy on Rescue Me and was excited to see he was local. I went to meet him and immediately fell in love. He was so sweet and immediately wanted to play. As soon as I picked him up, he started to give me kisses. I had to have him! There was no information on him since he was a stray, and I had no idea how long he had been neglected or living by himself, but his personality was just so precious. I took him home, gave him a haircut and a bath to find an 11 pound, sweet boy underneath all those hair mats. The vet gave him a 'thumbs up' for health, and he came home to live with my two boys (Peppy and Max), a Maltipoo and Bichon. He is doing well, but it has only been two days and he likes to sleep underneath my bed at night instead of on top and hides his treats, all of which I'm sure will change once he realizes he is safe and has a never ending supply of food. We love him to pieces! I wish I could upload a picture so you could see just how precious he looks now that he has lots of love. Oh yeah, his name is Boomer! He has definitely found his forever home.

     Rescue Me is a great and easy site to use! I'm always finding abandoned fur babies in my neighborhood. It's good to know there's a great site like yours to turn to to find a forever home for these animals. Through your site, it only took a week to find a good home for this dog. Thank you!

     This little precious fur baby came into our lives just months after losing my beloved Ditto. She has been such a joy and her disability has not stopped her one bit. She is now the Queen of our household. Thank you, Rescue Me.

     This was the easiest website to use. I posted Milo and the next day was getting calls to adopt. I spoke with interested people and placed him in an environment where he would be happy and thrive. So, thank you to Rescue Me. A donation is on its way. -Donna

     It has only been a week since driving a hour and a half to meet my sweet Tizzi Mae! It was an instant bond! She has already been to the doctor and gotten all her shots and a great healthy checkup! She has had to have dental surgery to have three teeth removed! She has done very well and feels terrific! I have been amazed at how quickly I have fallen in love with this little girl! She has truly captured my heart and the best little girl you could ask for! We both have been blessed to have found each other! Thank you Rescue Me for the wonderful blessings you have bestowed on so many! I am forever thankful, and Tizzie Mae thanks you too!

     Wow.. I know he's cute, but so are so many others. We posted Baxter around 11:00 am and he was adopted locally within a half hour. He now has a new home with a Bichon girlfriend with no male to fight with him. Thanks Rescue Me for helping all the puppies and kitties out there looking for a forever home. We thought Baccy had one here. We are heartbroken to lose him, but are other two males were ganging up on him and we didn't want him hurt badly or maybe even killed. We will miss him after having him two months but we feel he has a better home. We have checked it out and he seemed happy right away.

     This loving guy was able to find his forever home through Rescue Me! Thank you so so much for your services, as it is incredibly difficult to find foster homes/forever homes on your own. His new family thanks you as well!!

     Rescue Me is wonderful! Thanks to you Teddy was adopted by a loving family in less than 24 hours. Teddy's owner is in the hospital and is going to go to a nursing home. She was devastated thinking her pets were going to the pound, since she does not have any family. I took Teddy and Emma to my house ready to found good families for them, and guess what? Both of them were adopted by loving families in less than a day. Now the owner is very happy! Thanks!

     Fang was a very popular dog, so it was difficult to select a good home for him. Then, Kisha found us. She'd never had a dog before, so she was so inquisitive about Fang (his likes, dislikes, care he was provided). I could tell she really wanted him. She was easy to deal with and we were able to set up a meeting. After some initial reluctance, Fang warmed right up to her. We've since had contact and she was so grateful to have him. Her exact words were 'thank you so much, Fang has brought so much joy to our home... He's funny too!' Ultimately, that's what this is site is set up for....to bring joy into the lives of animals and the people who love them. Thanks, Rescue Me.

     Tito was posted on Rescue Me. We had many inquiries about him. Finally the perfect home for him was found and he was adopted. They were such dog smart people, knowing they had company coming and waited until after to take him home. They are totally in love with him, sending us email photos and updates.

     Thank you so much for this site. Within 24 hours of posting on Rescue Me, I had quite a few responses and just as many showings. I found most of the interested parties to be very good candidates, making the decision of who to place her with very difficult. But your suggestions and much prayer, Pepsi was adopted. Again, thanks and blessings.

     My husband and I lost our 16 year old shih tzu in August, and have been looking for another one. We found Taffy on Rescue Me! We went to see her and it was love at first sight! We had her checked out at the vet, and except for needing to be fixed and some problems with her teeth, she is just perfect for us! She cuddles up at night in bed with us, sleeps all night, and we think she was meant to be our forever fur angel! We could not be happier with her! Thanks to Rescue Me for making our Christmas the best one ever!

     I found a wonderful home for Buttercup! I love Rescue Me. I got so many inquiries and I truly think they were all quality potential owners. I am confident she will enjoy her new owners and will be more spoiled than she already is. I hated to see her go, but I met done wonderful people. My busy work schedule just wouldn't allow me to give her the time she needed. This is the best alternative to a shelter.

     I knew of a little guy who just had a rotten start in life. We 'thought' he was a shih tzu. I refused to let the owner take him to the pound so I posted here on RESCUE ME! I received many e-mails and calls and was able to place him in a wonderful home with a big fenced yard. The new owners are headed to Walmart to buy him some toys already! Thank you!

     Griffin was found filthy, terribly matted, and with a hurt rear leg. I rescued him from running in and out of the street. I cut his hair off, bathed him and tended to his hurt leg. Then he made a trip to get his vaccinations before he could get neutered. He was adopted by one lady whom he didn't fit with so I picked him back up and waited a few days. Then I posted him on Rescue Me and a nice lady has adopted him into her family. He will have two Shih Tzu sister and two big brothers. His new mom has had him neutered today and he is on his way to being a spoiled little fellow. I never expected to find a good loving home so quick he was only listed for two days. I will be forever grateful for the posting that got Griffin adopted. Success because he definitely fits right in with his new family. Thank you everyone!

     We have had Talula for four days. She will be working with me as a therapy dog. I am a counselor in private practice and she went to work with me for a half day on Saturday. She will need a little work on socialization, but I think she shows promise. John and Tammy can feel good about this place. She is a lover and has already adapted to two other dogs and two cats in our home. She loves the fenced in back yard and has enjoyed being off leash. Thanks for the work you do, Rescue Me.

     Patches found a new home the day after I posted him on Rescue Me. The couple who adopted him had extensive experience with Shih Tzu's. They invited me to their home so I could see where Patches would be living. Patches's new family was warm and obviously ready to care for the new member of their family. I am so happy that Patches found a sweet loving family and I felt very comfortable leaving Patches with them.

     Dear All, We are very excited to let you know that Chewbaka ' Chewie' has been adopted by the wonderful Vet and his Staff who have been fostering him since he was abandoned on their back door steps in a box, nearly 2 months ago. Chewie has become a huge hit at the Animal hospital, as the front office dog in his shiny new wheel chair they ordered for him. It lets him run around and go outside to do his business and take walks. I have referred many 'Rescue Me' inquiries to the Vet who wanted to screen potential adopters due to his severe disability. He and his staff realized what an amazing little companion Chewie is and decided to keep him. Our daughter is thrilled, since Chewie has a second lease on life and she gets to see him every weekend when she interns there. A life lesson learned by everyone involved. Many thanks to Rescue Me through which all many inquiries and supportive statements were received. It was a big help when we read the outpouring of support for this sweet ShuiTzu, especially when we thought his days were numbered. It takes a Village! Warm regards and many high paws. Love, Chewie and our Family

     We lost our beloved Shih Tzu nearly a year ago. Only recently have our hearts been ready to look for another little fur baby. Rescue Me and Vincent Luke's previous owner were the answer to our prayers. Our hearts melted when we saw the photo of Vincent Luke, and we contacted his owner immediately. A huge thank you to you, Jeff, for a wonderful service through Rescue Me, and to our dog's previous family, and an even bigger thank you for the precious gift of 'Vincie'.

     The moment I saw the ad for Manny I knew he was going to be ours. He looks like a mini version of our Maxwell and Murphy. Truly, Manny rescued me. We had to put our precious Murphy down yesterday. The pain in my heart is like nothing I've experienced and I know the tears will be ongoing for a long time. But now, as I write this, I'm laughing and smiling, watching Manny run around our house playing with toys that are everywhere. He is a little angel taking care of us. I have told him already (we've just got him five days ago) that I'm his mommy and he is going to have the best life ever. He kisses my tears and makes my heart feel better. Thank you, Rescue Me, for sending him our way. The timing is unbelievable. He was meant to be with us!

     Thank you, Rescue Me! We needed to find a home quickly for Lucy as she was in a temporary placement with us after her owner passed away. My husband suggested we search for a Shih Tzu rescue and, within 24 hours of posting Lucy, we had six inquiries. Lucy was adopted within a few days. We are sincerely grateful.

     I am very grateful to Rescue Me! I found a wonderful home for my mother's Shih Tzu in less than a week. Joy went home to her new family this weekend and we have already received great pictures showing her in her new setting. I received at least several inquiries within hours of posting Joy's story.. I was able to easily email, text or talk on the phone with the interested parties. Rescue Me made this all possible. I had also posted Joy's story on Facebook and had my friends spreading the word, but the real, actual interested people all came from Rescue Me. Thank you!

     My Shih Tzu found a wonderful home with a girl who has wanted a dog since she was four years old. Now at age 12, she got her very first dog. She has a nine year old brother and they are sharing her. The parents are very glad they found her. It was a wonderful re-home for my dog and the family. I am very glad to have found this family. Thank you, Rescue Me.

     I'm so grateful for Rescue Me and for all the responses to my post for the Shih Tzu we rescued but could not keep. I also tried to place him through my network of friends and co-workers but no one could take him. This sweet little dog met his new Mom today and headed off to a new home with a fenced yard and another dog to share it with. This obviously would not have been possible without Rescue Me!

     Thank you for the loving care you give these dogs! Evie was one of three dogs found as strays, starving. They were taken in by a shelter, where they lived in a dog grooming business. Evie is now with us in her new home, (our house :). She's a sweet girl, and we are thankful the process was seamless. I inquired about her two days ago, and now she's ours. Thank you Rescue me and Lisa, (owner, Dawg House Grooming), for your love and concern for dogs!
