     Just wanted to say thank you to Rescue Me for helping us find the perfect home for our adult Aussie 'Jackson'!!! A change in our living situation made it necessary for us to find another home for him. I placed a post through the site and had several inquiries. The one that stood out as the best fit for him turned out to be the perfect match!! Lamar and Jana were looking for another Aussie to adopt and after several communications we decided on a trial over Memorial Day weekend. He was immediately welcomed into their home and he felt content right away! Jack, as many Aussies, tended to be cautious of new people but that wasn't the case with the Jenkins family, and just after a day he was feeling right at home with them. As hard as it was to part with him it was so important that he was content in his new home and that made my heart happy!! Thanks again! Vicki1

     I am a very happy new mom of sweet Harper. After speaking with the AMAZING Connie Sparks, she explained how the pups are transported etc. She walked me through the whole process and dealt with my multiple phone calls and questions, she made this whole process a simple one! My puppy was very well cared for by Angels Heart Puppy Rescue and Got Orphans transport! You are all amazing kind hearted people and will certainly send anyone looking to Rescue Me! Thank you for all you do.

     A family contacted me about Lago. She had been searching for four months for a new dog to add to her family. She found Lago on Rescue Me. So she headed across country in hopes she would like him. He was perfect, and he immediately took to them. He had been in the pound for longer than we like, because of a hot spot on his back leg, people didn't understand and would overlook him, but she didn't care. She loved him and he loved her within minutes. Thank You Rescue Me for a successful adoption!!

     I posted my Suzie's picture on this site at the recommendation of a friend when Suzie started to show a few signs of aggression. I live in the city and Suzie was getting agitated as she originally came from a more rural area. Although trainers told me they could work with her, they all felt she would probably be happier in a more rural area or on a farm. After posting her picture, I had three people respond immediately as to wanting to meet her and others who offered their moral support and some suggestions. Without this site's help, I don't know what I would have done. Suzie has found a new home with Bob, who knew exactly how to handle and work with her. I think she will be happy in her new home as she has room to run and some new sheep friends to play with. Last text I got, Suze and Bob were riding in his truck and she was licking his face. Thank you Bob for taking my Suzie, to all of you who offered words of encouragement and support and to Jeff Gold for creating Rescue Me.

     We are so happy that Rescue Me helped us find a loving home for Mya. She has been such a special dog to us and it means so much that she has a good forever home! Her adopters are wonderful and love her so much. They have even invited us to visit her anytime and have updated us on how she has been adjusting. My niece suggested Rescue Me and I am so grateful of the services this site provides. I really hope other people have great experiences as well and that each an every dog posted finds a home as loving and receptive as the one Mya went to. A big thank you to Jeff Gold and all of those who make this site possible.

     I fell in love with this beautiful boy the second we saw his picture on Rescue Me. He is already filling the hole left in our hearts by the loss of our beloved Benny last May who was also an Aussie Shepherd mix. Linda got the ball rolling with the adoption process right away checking our references and processing the application. She also facilitated our contact with Fran about four hours south of us. They had done a fantastic job getting Stanley started down a loving, structured path in life. Yesterday was a long, rewarding day as I had worked an overnight shift and got off at 7:00 AM before we hit the road to go down and meet Stanley at Fran's ranch. We were so excited to meet her and her daughters, but especially Stanley. He is even more handsome in person than the photo shows. It was obvious that it had been a great team effort to work with Stanley and provide him the strong training he needed. I admire these people willing to devote the time and effort it must take with the understanding they can't get too attached to these beautiful animals who will soon be leaving their homes. I am very grateful to Fran and her family, to Australianshepherdfurever and Rescue Me for getting us together.

     Rescue Me is absolutely amazing! Within 24 hours, I had at least a dozen interested adopters. I have placed Lola in an amazing home on five acres with two other Aussies. I am so happy she will have other dogs to play with and she will get to run and play and be active. I would recommend this site to anyone that finds themselves in need of rehoming a dog. The people I have talked with being all wonderful and true dog lovers.

     My mother passed away unexpectedly, just six days after her 87th birthday, leaving her faithful companion, Annie, without a home. On the last day of her life, Mother asked my brother to leave the hospital to go home and check on Annie. She felt Annie would be worried. When mother didn't come home, Annie was sad and confused. All of our family members already have multiple dogs, so it was our prayer to find a loving, forever home for 11 year old Annie. The loss of Mother was difficult, but not knowing Annie's fate made it even more distressing. Just one day after posting an Annie's story on Rescue Me, I received several messages from folks saying they'd like to meet Annie. On about the third day, I got a call. Wendy said she'd lost her 14 year old Aussie a month ago and she wanted to give Annie a home. I told her that Annie had been without grooming for over a year and I wanted to get her cleaned up before anyone saw her. Wendy said I had enough on my mind, that she would have her groomed and not to worry about anything. Wendy already had a small dog, so I told her Annie hadn't been socialized, that she was raised on a farm and I wasn't sure how she'd react to another dog. Wendy wasn't discouraged. We delivered Annie to Wendy and the love story began. The groomer came the next day, and Wendy presented Annie with a red sweater and a collar with rhinestones on it. Annie met her new brother, Bandit, and they hit it off immediately. I've been invited to visit Annie any time and Wendy has sent text messages and pictures to me on a regular basis, giving me updates on Annie's new journey. I'm so thankful for our good fortune. I believe Wendy was our angel, an answer to our prayers through Rescue Me.

     We are happy to announce that we have adopted a darling Mini Australian Shepherd all due to the services provided by Rescue Me! We adopted a rescue dog many years ago, but lost her seven months ago when she was 14. We were heartbroken and decided to look for another rescue. I checked many shelters and online sites for months looking for a dog to join our family. Then, I found Rescue Me where I could register for alerts and would be notified when new dogs were put up for adoption. That's how we found Jackson. I responded immediately to the posting, and the next morning I heard back! We had applied for so many dogs over the past months and seldom received a response. The owner did an excellent job describing Jackson's personality and needs. We wanted a calm, cuddly companion and that describes Jackson perfectly! We've only had him for a few days and can hardly believe how smart and perfect he is. Thank you Rescue Me and Jeff Gold for providing this wonderful service. We have our sweet little Jackson because of you!

     We fostered this amazing Red Merel Aussie until we found the right match. That didn't take long on Rescue Me at all. I was fortunate to find an amazing owner on the first shot. She knew about the need and knew what it requires to have one. She had plenty of land and lots of mental and physical work for him to do. This was my first time using Rescue Me and I was a little nervous. With this experience, I am quite pleased with the quick turn around.

     We found 'Buster' as a lost, hungry, scared 'rez-dog' about four months ago. After getting him used to being in a house, riding in a car (he loves it!) and on a leash, we posted him on Rescue Me and got a call within a few hours! A wonderful couple drove across the state to check him out, took him home and he's doing great there. Thank you!

     Rescue Me helped find a home for the last male Aussie. All three pups went to very good homes, two within five miles of me. I met one of the new moms at the vet this past Friday, her husband was the one who came to adopt the puppy. Very nice folks and good dog people! The two families close by happen to know each other, so two of the siblings will be able to stay in touch throughout their lives. Great success for all the pups!! God bless you!!

     I'm so pleased to announce that I've adopted Phil. Just this past spring our family received the sad news that our adopted eight year old male Australian Shepherd, Remington, came down with cancer. We did everything that was humanely possible to save him, but it just wasn't in God's plan. He brought so much joy to our family we couldn't bear the thought of being without him. So I made a pledge to him that I would continue to offer our home as a safe haven to another in his honor. Rescue Me is to thank for helping me honor my pledge. From the moment I saw Phil on the website and then later when I met him, I knew that he was Remington's choice. And no doubt mine too! My thanks to all of you at Rescue Me for the wonderful work you do and to your commitment rescuing our BEST FREINDS! Your Aussie Partner - Tim

     I am so grateful for Rescue Me. After losing my Australian Shepard to old age, I was devastated. I thought I'd just see if there were any Australian Shepherd rescues, because I really believe in rescuing dogs. I never believed I'd find another, and there was Yodi. It took a few days to contact his previous owner as they had taken him to a shelter, but I finally did. Today I drove five hours to a wonderful shelter to get him. It was love at first sight. Aussies are so amazing. I'm not quite sure who is rescuing whom at this moment, but I know that it's all about the love and we are very happy!

     We've had our little miniature Australian Shepherd for almost two months now. When we first got him, he was fearful and would snap and try to bite sometimes when certain motions toward him were made. It took several weeks for us to gain his trust and now he is as gentle as he can be. However, he is still wary of some strangers, including some children. His prior owner said that he didn't like car rides, but according to his owner, he had never been anywhere but to the veterinarian's office and now he goes with us everywhere. He is my second Australian rescue and when my elderly English Spaniel passes, I will be adopting an another Aussie playmate for him.

     I was looking for an Australian Shepard, but did not want to purchase a puppy from a breeder because there are so many dogs out there that need a good, loving home, and we found Gypsy on Rescue Me! She is perfect, sweet, kind, gentle, and smart. I am so glad that I looked around before buying a puppy. She is a blessing to add to our family.

     My husband and I got Major at eight weeks old several years ago. We quickly found out he had already contracted parvo. We spent months caring for and praying he would survive, which he gratefully did. Over the years we have had the greatest gift of love and loyalty from this wonderful creature. Now, due to a number of health issues I have from a brain tumor and numerous surgeries, I can not play with Major and do the things with him he enjoys most. He wouldn't complain, but I love him so much I wanted better for him than I can give. Thanks to the Rescue Me website, Monty and his family found Major's ad. Major bonded with Monty and Pam immediately and I am 100% confident they will give Major the love he has become accustom to getting, as well as, all the activity I am unable to give him. I can't thank you enough for providing this medium that connected us to Major's new family. God Bless You!!!

     It broke our heart to have to find a new home for Sadie, but she was just too much of a ball of energy for our two 13 year old dogs, and we didn't want them to spend their final years in fear of their overly playful sister. While we are so sad to see her go, we are thrilled that she found a new home with Melanie and Josh, and their two year old Norwegian Elkhound 'Skye'. When Melanie and Josh move two months ago, that meant Skye had to be separated from her brother Roscoe, and she has been in a deep funk ever since. Now Skye has a new sister to fill her days with, and Sadie has a playmate more suited to her energy and enthusiasm. And Melanie and Josh appear to have more than enough love for the both of them. Thank you, Rescue Me.

I love the Australian Shepherd breed as they are the most loving, loyal and gentle dogs that anyone could hope to have in their life. This little guy lives with me now and is as sweet as he can be. I hope many others will consider adopting an Aussie and I am thinking about adopting another in the near future. Thank you, Rescue Me.

     Late last year my sister, who was living with me at the time, decided to move out of state, leaving her puppy behind. Since we had two other dogs and we absolutely loved Denver, the pup she left behind, we made the decision to try to raise him as our own. As time went on and he grew from a rambunctious puppy to a rambunctious dog it became very apparent that our eight to five work schedules were not working for Denver. He began to get bored during the days with no one to play with him and entertained himself with the destruction of carpets, trash, shoes, blankets, etc. Since we are renters, this forced us to kennel him during the time we were gone. After a month or two of watching poor Denver's sad face every morning when putting him in his kennel for the day we made the tough decision to start trying to find him a new home. We didn't need him to be rehomed right away and after hearing all the Craigslist horror stories of puppies going to unfit or abusive homes, we started to search for other options that might give Denver the best chance to find a good forever home. In searching, we were referred by a couple people to this site and only heard good things about it so we decided to give it a try. We posted Denver and within a week were getting tons of responses from people interested in giving him a home. I was able to interview everyone who contacted me in depth which helped to ease my mind a lot during the whole process! After about two or three weeks and a couple of days of asking a potential family a billion questions, we had finally found a couple that we thought would be the perfect match for Denver. They drove quite a distance to meet Denver which to me said a lot about their want and dedication to finding the perfect pup. Once there, we brought Denver out to introduce him to his potential new family and immediately Denver and they fell in love with each other. Denver has been with his new family for two weeks now and we have received about two weeks worth of pictures and videos of Denver playing in his new big backyard, enjoying the dog park, playing with his new toys, and giving his new mom kisses. Letting him go was admittedly very hard for us, but being able to see him in his new surroundings so full of life and happiness and knowing how much he is loved in his new home continues to make the healing process 20x easier! We were so lucky to have found Denver's new family to give him a perfect home and love him for forever and we were even luckier to have found Rescue Me to make it all possible. Thank you Rescue Me from us, Denver, and his new family!

     Due to circumstances beyond my control I was forced to find a new home for my great little two year old Aussie female. I posted her on Rescue Me yesterday afternoon and received a phone call from a very nice lady this morning. She and her husband had just lost their dog and were interested in adopting a new dog. We met this afternoon and they immediately fell in love with my dog and took her home with them. This is a wonderful organization and if I can ever get another dog this is where I will find it.

I took Cora in to give her a loving home, however, with my work schedule and my husband's work schedule, we were unable to provide the love and attention Cora needs. We took her in to help out a friend and he offered her to us. But Cora is so sweet and so loving she deserves to be in a home where she can run and be free live a happy dog life.

     Thank you so much Rescue Me! We were madly in love with a stray we found, but due to her strong prey instinct, we were not able to keep her with our cats. I checked with friends and family and was not able to find any leads for her. I knew I was at least her third home and I wanted to be sure she went to a true, forever home. We had our first inquiry the same day I posted and had several homes to choose from within a few days. Maddie is now at her new home where she will learn agility skills and work to learn enough skills to be a therapy dog. I could not have dreamed of a more perfect place for her and could have never connected with her new owner without you.

     Mandy, a three year old Australian Shepard, has a vision problem that will leave her vision impaired, or perhaps totally blind. We didn't feel that our home would continue to be a safe place for her. We live in a remote area with livestock, snakes, cactus, etc. I was thrilled that within 24 hours of posting Mandy, she had a chance at a new home, and it turned out to be just the perfect one for her. Also wonderful was two other responses I got, one with help to find a blind dog rescue, and another with an offer of a home. Thank you Rescue Me! I will occasionally foster working breeds or large dogs or rescue from the shelter, which is a kill shelter in my area. Rescue Me will be my first source in the rehoming process.

     Wow! What a wonderful adoption for our cute little man! His new mom and dad drove six hours one-way to pick him up! They are a very active young couple who enjoy hiking and running, which will be perfect for his personality and intelligence! He needed to be with a very active and fun-loving group with friends who have active dogs as well! So very, very happy! Thank you, Rescue Me.

     I lost my two dogs in less than a year due to cancer. When my Aussie passed a few weeks ago, I started looking for a new dog. First went to the SPCA but didn't find any that suited me. Then I started checking the Australian Shepherd Rescue Me site. Within less than a week, I found Delaney. She came home with me today and is doing just great. Think she was surprised with all the toys that are lying about and is having a fantastic time playing. I also brought my neighbor's Labrador over and the two of them had a great time in the back yard. I highly recommend this site for anyone wanting to adopt an Aussie or Aussie-mix.

     Using the word rescue is a little misleading in this situation, because an unfortunate scenario caused his previous owner to find a new home for Toby. Toby traveled from seven and a half hours with me. WOW, what a traveler. Would stop every couple of hours to let him walk. He was so mellow and loving the entire trip. Since he has been in our home, he has settled in like he has been here forever. Follows me around and constantly shows love. He likes attention and shows respect and consideration for Retread (our other Aussie), and Brooks (our German Shepherd). Last night, our first night with him in our home, we truly experienced a Three Dog Night. All three slept on the foot of our bed. Thank God for king size beds. Retread and Brooks, both have accepted Toby and try to include him in there play. He is still getting use to their activeness, but is joining in well. We feel so comfortable with him in our home and he is a welcome addition.

     Bud and Beauford were adopted by a wonderful couple. They drove all the way to pick up the boys. They were thrilled to meet the dogs and have already made arrangements to attend behavior/training classes with them and have their vet waiting to see them to get a check up and shots. Beauford was so excited to meet his new Dad that he crawled up in his lap! Thank you Rescue Me for giving us a way to communicate to prospective adoptive homes for these wonderful animals.

     She was adopted today by a great family. Six families were interested, and all put in applications. The specific person I wanted did not get to adopt her because she was not the first nor the second line, but will continue to watch for her if it does not work out. She said she was heartbroken in one way, but happy she found a family. Thank you, Rescue Me.

I was a little unsure about posting her on a website, but I have had so many warm responses, I couldn't have been more happy. It hurts my heart to hear some of the stories of peoples' hearts breaking in search of a new family member. This is truly a wonderful site, and I will definitely recommend it if asked in the future. I hope everyone out there finds a loving baby like my Mena to fill their hearts once more.

     Max is an absolutely perfect addition to our family. Ever Thankful! Max's foster Judy was a genuine pleasure to work, we really lucked out by finding and using Rescue Me. In the week that we've had him, it's become very obvious that Max is the perfect dog for my two boys. He brings the best out of them both. He settled in immediately as if he's been living with us for years, and is a better fit than I could have ever anticipated. Thank you so much!

What a great way to help these precious animals and give them a home. Thank you!

     Sparrow was adopted by a wonderful family. Although this family did not see him through Rescue Me, the site was still very beneficial. A second family, which did see Sparrow on Rescue Me, also wanted to adopt him and would have if the other family was a day later. In addition, I have received many emails requesting to meet Sparrow in the short amount of time between him getting adopted and me being able to update his status on the site to adopt. So, I have no doubts that Rescue Me helped and also helped by getting the word out that a deaf dog can have a happy wonderful life!

     I love Shep! He stays by my side all the time and looks at my face constantly for cues! What a great boy he is! We just moved and he has gotten protective while on walks, which is a godsend for an old woman like me in a town like this. He does not get vicious, but he does bark and he looks very imposing! Shep has a sister who is a ten year old bird dog and a brother who is a twelve year old Sheltie. He also has three cats whom he respects. I am so glad Rescue Me exists. I am so happy to have Shep! Peace and love to all and good luck in your searches!

     My two Australian Shepherds died of old age problems. I never thought I would find the right Aussie, but I was so pleased we found Izzy in the next city over from us. Izzy turned out to be the greatest present ever! When I first met her, she kept flying around the room (usual Aussie) never holding still a minute, but Izzy knew how to keep someones interest. She gets along with all my cats and my old Chespeake Bay Retriever. My husband and I love Izzy! She is the cutest, small Australian Shepherd we have ever met. I have plans to start her agility as soon as we get some leash training in and to find a closer place to take agility lessons. She is so smart. Once you introduce her to something, she wants to do it again. I can not thank Jeff Gold with Rescue Me enough. If it had not been for the Rescue Me post, we might never have met. And another thanks to the owners who had her and gave her to us. I just want you all to know she is God's little angel to my prayers of finding another Aussie! Thanks and God Bless!

     Due to divine intervention and Rescue Me, Splash found the most wonderful home that I could ever have hoped for. Due to the extreme illness, my sister could no longer keep Splash. He has always lived in a pen and had very little interaction with the outside world. Now he has a life with three other Aussies, and the most wonderful woman that takes him out on hikes every day. He goes to the lake to swim, and he gets to run off leash. This is something he has never in his life been able to do. You see, Splash was born blind so his world consisted of a pen. Now he gets to live the life that he so deserves. He is such a gentle soul and such a sweet dog. I am so thankful for Rescue Me and the wonderful lady that adopted him.

     I found Rescue Me while looking for a rescue shelter and thought why not try it. I think this is a great idea and a great site. Soon after posting we received numerous calls and emails and texts. Homes lined up for three of the four dogs we posted. Taffy is the first to go to her new home. She had a rough trip to meet her new owner, as she had never been in a travel crate or a car before. As soon as soon as Taffy met Jerry it was love on sight. Jerry does team roping and Taffy will be going with him and be his daily companion around the ranch. Thanks to Rescue Me and keep up the great service.

     Last year I found Beauregard 'Beau' - an Australian Cattle Dog / Australian Shepherd mix - on Rescue Me! He'd been rescued from the shelter by a family, but he wasn't getting along with their existing dog, so he needed another home. Beau's foster family posted him on Rescue Me!, and they were great about providing very complete and honest information and arranging a meeting. They had trained him well while fostering him, which I'm very grateful for. Beau rapidly became my best friend, running and hiking buddy, and general 'shadow'. And my then boyfriend's (now husband's) dog loves him; they're true 'brothers' - playing, arguing, and missing each other when apart. Beau and I have been inseparable for almost a year now. His 'birthday' is next week, which prompted me to finally write this review. The thing I like best about Rescue Me! is the ability to search by breed. My previous dog, Toby, was an Australian Cattle Dog mix, so I hoped another dog of the same breed would also be compatible with my lifestyle. I also appreciate that the people posting on Rescue Me! are generally able to provide great information about the animals, leading to a more likely successful match. I mean it in the most sincere way when I say thank you, Rescue Me!, for helping me find my best friend! - Jane

     Bella was adopted by a very sweet woman named Cathy. I drove out to meet her and introduce them. She knew it was hard to say Goodbye to Bella, so she allowed us to take our time to say our goodbyes. I knew it would be hard, but it was even harder than I thought it would be. I knew she was going to a great home, Cathy is very loving and had some really nice things in her car to keep Bella comfy on the ride home. She has kept in touch with me to advise how well Bella is adjusting. I am so grateful for the Rescue Me! website. I have had numerous calls on Bella and Harley. Thank you so much for having this available to all of us that love our animals, but cannot keep them and want them to be adopted by another loving person.
