     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.

     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.

     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 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.

     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

     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!

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!

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!

     Our family had a very sad occasion recently when my older brother passed away. My wife and I took in my brother's two Shih Tzu dogs to try to find a home for them. We have three dogs of our own, two of which were rescues, so we were not able to keep them. My brother only had one of the dogs for four months, so we decided it would be OK to split them up. I tried different avenues such as word of mouth, Craigslist, and Facebook to try to find them a home. We had the dogs for over a month, and my cousin said to try Rescue Me Shih Tzu Rescue. It was very easy to enter the dogs into the system. I entered them on a Thursday, and by Monday we found the perfect home for one of the dogs. The new owner has a two year old Shih Tzu male and wanted a companion for him. He went on the site and found our two year old female. The rest is history. We are dog lovers, and to find the perfect match made us feel like we really helped. We are still waiting for someone to adpot the male 11 year old, but we have high hopes. Thanks to this site many dogs can find a new home.

     I had been looking for a few months to find the right Shih Tzu for my parents who just less than 6 months ago lost there Shih Tzu to illness. My parents did not want another breed, it had to be a Shih Tzu. They did not want to raise a puppy, as the puppy could outlive them. My search for a Shih Tzu was a long and sad road until I found Rescue Me! I immediately e-mailed the owner of Dolice, and he answered my e-mail within the hour. In the meantime I forwarded the photo of Dolice to my parents and they knew right away that she was the dog for them. I reassured the prior owner Dolice would be an only child. Yes, I did say child, as my parents will treat this dog just like a child. Dolice, you are in good hands. You will be treated like a Queen. My experience with Rescue Me! was wonderful, I just wish I had found it sooner. Thanks to Mr. Gold for adding tips to get the dog we wanted. One tip was to act fast, and glad I did act fast, as the owner had just put Dolice on this site one hour before I called. So my suggestion to new people who are looking for that perfect dog, act fast, do not wait... Thanks to all who had a part in getting this sweet baby to my parents. Teresa

     Reiko found a home right away once I posted him on the Rescue Me! site. The people were close to home, and Reiko took up with them immediately. Very satisfied.

     The same day I posted Reilly for adoption, I had two inquiries from about 100 miles away. The second person drove over that night and instantly fell in love with him. It sure seemed that the feelings were mutual. I never dreamed he would find a good home so quickly. Thank you, Rescue Me!

     I posted Max on Rescue Me! just one week ago. Thanks to this website, I had multiple inquires and they were all great, but I had to choose only one. After many emails and phone conversations, I went with my instinct and I was right. I could not have given max to a better home. He is with his forever family with two beautiful children and a big Labradoodle named Clyde. It made my heart feel good when I left, I thought I was going to be very sad to let him go, but I walked away knowing that he is with the best.

     We drove to adopt Arggie. It was a whirlwind of a round trip in one day. He turned out to be a very sweet, personable, little guy. He has brought so much love and joy to a very empty pair of hearts. We had lost our 16-year old Shih Tzu 'Trap' some months back. When we learned of his urgent plight, we couldn't let anything, like being bounced around from homes to shelter, happen to him. We are grateful to his owner for giving us this precious little ball of joy, and to Rescue Me! for facilitating this adoption.

     Thanks to Rescue Me I was able to find a new, permanent home for my dog. I really appreciate it!

     After a divorce, I got the two dogs, but it was challenging to adapt them to living in an apartment building with an elevator, after they had grown up having their own room and an outdoor run. I found Rescue Me! and immediately received numerous inquiries about adoption. One response was from a nice lady who already had two Shih Tzus, slightly younger, and wanted a third for her large family. We met right away, and she and Roxi seemed to really hit it off. She has since sent me photos of the three dogs on several occasions. I really appreciated the follow-through from her. It was tough enough to separate after six years... I thank Rescue Me! for making this possible.

     I adopted Za Za this past weekend. I had been in contact with the owner for a couple of weeks. She is the sweetest little girl. Very quiet, and wants to just be in my lap. I picked her up on Saturday and had the rest of the weekend to bond with her. She sleeps in the bed with me, my other two shih tzus, and my boxer. She is a wonderful little girl and I love her so much. She became part of our family the moment I picked her up.

     Rescue Me! helped us adopt the perfect little one for us, Pharaoh. We lost our 18-year old Lab about a month ago; before that we lost his sister. Even with our cat family rescues, the house felt empty and lonely, and we missed them terribly. At first we were not going to get another dog to put ourselves through another eventual loss; and being seniors we could not consider a puppy that would outlive us, it would not be fair to the dog. So when it got too hard without a dog to love, we started looking for an older adult dog for adoption through Rescue Me! When we saw Pharaoh, who lived close to us, we contacted the owners at the time. We spoke with them and they brought this adorable eight year old little guy to us, and he immediately took to us. At first he cried and looked for his owner, but then he quickly cuddled in our laps and snuggled in bed with us. The cats took to him pretty quickly. He gets healthy food and treats and grooming, and our love and devotion. He loves to be walked and go for car rides. But most importantly, he returns our love and affection. Sincerely, Gary and Sandra Auerback

     A family who does missionary work within their community, visiting nursing homes, hospice, etc., were looking for the ideal therapy dog and discovered Lady. We felt she would be wonderful for this situation because of her calm demeanor, so we are happy to say, she was the chosen one for her new job plus she will be their new family member.

     I feel so blessed being chosen by the Johnston's to adopt not one but two little Shih Tzus. I wanted two, and it happened. I promise to do my very best in keeping them well loved, will keep a careful watch over them, and give them a loving home and plenty of space to roam!! As happy as I am, I'm saddened in the same sense that they have to leave their old home. They have been well taken care of by the Johnston's, who raised these sisters since they were babies, eight years ago. Kudos to Rescue Me!, without this service I would probably have never found Gracie and Belle!!! Blessings and good luck to all, Joe

     My three loving shih tzus were adopted by the most wonderful families! They still keep me posted about how the dogs are doing, which helps me tremendously. I consider this to be the best way I could have found to place my dogs where they can get everything I was not able to give them. It made what could have been a very difficult experience, a relatively easy and peaceful one.

     Little Phyllis found a wonderful home less than a week after we posted her on Rescue Me! This has been such a wonderful website for our pet adoption center. The interest in our animals has been great. I have passed the www.RescueMe.Org website on to other shelters and rescues. The more we all share, the better for the homeless animals in our communities. Thank you, Rescue Me! Mary Saalmanlman, Dubois County Humane Society
