     Abby became homeless when her Human became so ill she needed an assisted care home. Abby found her new home within days. I praise God the Creator and I thank you Rescue Me and Claws and Paws Rescue of West Branch who contacted me with THREE prospective forever homes. It was an all-out cat fight for Abby! The man who adopted her lost his Calico 10 days ago to old age. The moment he held Abby, the tears began to fall - his, mine, and everyone's! Thank you!

     Rescue Me was very helpful in assisting us to get out the pictures of our kittens. We adopted out two of our four kittens due to them having been seen on Rescue Me. Thank you so much!! Keep up the good work.

     Thank you so much for caring, Jeff. I just adopted two kitties to a great family. These were kittens that were born of a stray cat that made her home on our porch. I am on my back recently with a back injury and can no longer care for these kittens. Even though stray, my heart goes out to any animal and so wanted to find a good home for them. I had asked and called all over, and no one seemed to be able to help. This is the first time I've run across Rescue Me, and I am so grateful. This has been so helpful. Thank you so much for the love of these animals.

     Rescue Me has been a lifesaver for me and my beloved pets. All of my pets are rehomed into loving families! I never had to rehome a pet before. Finding a new home was looking like it would be terribly painful until I found Rescue Me. I got a great response and found the proper homes to fit the needs of each pet. Thank you everybody!

     I received a call pretty quickly from Rescue Me! and took my pet over to the person who answered my post. Toby was adopted to cat lovers, and he has found a forever home.

     Dear Jeff, Thank you so much for all the effort you've put into Rescue me! Thanks to one of your rescuers, my cat 'Sweet Pea' was able to get the help he needed, and is now very comfortable in his new home. May God bless the precious woman who gave above and beyond to help me with our situation. Sincerely, Jonathan Baldon

     Using Rescue Me!, one of my pets found a pretty friendly set of people to go home to. Thank you for the help!

     We had to put our dog, Loki, down Labor Day weekend and our hearts were heavy, along with our other cat that was Loki's best friend, so we were hoping to rescue another cat to fill our empty hearts. We met Titan's owner and fell in love with him immediately. He is a beautiful, loving cat... We took him to the vet and found out he has a heart problem, and needs to be monitored every few months, but we are loving him. He's a big beautiful boy that loves attention, giving kisses and playing. We are thankful to have him.

     Little Squirt just went to his new home. Thank you so much for having Rescue Me! available. Someone asked about him from seeing his picture on your site! Wanted to wait a couple of days to make sure he is being well loved, and he is! Thanks again, Diane

     I got a response to the posting for Galway, my silver-gray gentleman cat, almost immediately. It seems his new owner, Pat, had just lost a 22-year-old male cat companion, who needed a successor. Fortunately, Lord Plushmonster, as I sometimes called Galway, really loves to have his photo taken, and made himself irresistible. Thank you so much for being there. I'm in kind of a spot, having to move to a place where no pets are permitted, which will be hard for me. But Rescue Me rescued ME! Thanks again, Bill

     Rescue Me! has been a tremendous help in finding homes for my rescued kittens and cats. I've also recommended the site to a lot of folks inquiring about adopting dogs and cats in other areas. I appreciate all of your help, and my rescues do, too.

     Rescue Me sure did help. I got a response from an adopter within days of posting Brenda, and just took her to her new home today. Thank you Rescue Me. You are doing great work. God Bless you.

     We have gotten many kitties adopted through Rescue Me! It is a wonderful sight. If I stop to count all the cats that have been adopted from people looking at Rescue Me! it is about 20 in the last 12 months. Thanks you for providing a fantastic service to the rescue community!

     Wanted to share our happy ending & Gimli's new beginning! We are relocating and could not bring Gimli. It was urgent we find her a new adoptive family. We placed her for adoption on 7/16/12 in the morning & that SAME morning a nice gentleman called saying he was on a mission to find a family cat & Gimli seemed perfect. The following evening after the family consensus that Gimli was to be adopted, father & young son arrived to pick her up. It was heartbreaking to send her off with them but they were very reassuring she'd be loved & cared for so that helped. We believe they also liked using the site & rescuing a good sweet cat in need of adoption! THANK YOU to this family for helping us entrust our beloved member of the family to them! AND THANK YOU JEFF GOLD & RESCUE ME! SITE for the accessibility & use of this essential service being a way for pet owners to do right by their pets in the face of time sensitive situations!8ol

     Zahara and Casperov found a new home together with a very deserving couple. This couple lived in an apartment with a dog they had for nine years and a cat they had for two years. The cat actually belonged to a sister in law who moved into a place that would not allow her to keep her cat. Once the sister in law's lease was up she relocated to a place that would let her have her cat, so on a Monday the sister in law reclaimed her cat leaving the couple with their nine year old dog. Sadly, earlier in the month the complex where the couple lived had sent a notice that they were no longer permitting dogs. All dog owners had until the end of the month to get rid of them. The Friday before the sister in law claimed her cat the couple had given up their companion of nine years. By the following weekend the couple realized they missed having a four legged companion. They began searching for a cat or kitten of their own when they saw the article and pictures of Zahara and her brother Casperov. The couple fell in love with the kittens. They went to Walmart and purchased everything they could think of the two kittens would need, even a nice big cat carrier. I interviewed them and they came to my house so that I could meet them and they could see the kittens. The couple wasn't there five minutes when Zahara and Casperov were all over them. It was love at first sight for all four. I was impressed with the couple. The way they handled the kittens and what they said to me. All four left together in less than hour. It has been a happily ever after since.

     Townie, a Siamese mix tuxedo male kitten was adopted along with his companion Glory, a black, small feline young adult cat, by a wonderful family with two children and a pet rabbit in a country home with everything they need to have a fantastic quality of life, love, and unconditional commitment to their well-being. Our organization, Friends of Felines, are very grateful for a site like Rescue me which helps to find happy endings to our fosters' lives. Thank you so much for caring and offering your services!

     I want to share a story from a cat that I posted, that was going to be put to sleep at my local shelter and I took her in to try to find her a home. I live in Miami and I posted her online, a wonderful guy saw her and reminded him of his previous cat that had passed and he fell in love. He flew from Atlanta just to come and adopt her, all thanks to the fact that he saw her through Rescue Me! Great web site! Sofia
