     Thank you Rescue Me for helping find a wonderful loving home for my precious Cordery! I received many emails and phone calls within a week of posting her on your website. I found a local family that absolutely LOVES her and is so happy to be getting such a loving and friendly Jack Russell. They have a 3 year old Terrier mix, a cat, and a bird. I let Cordery go to their home for a few days to get to know all her pets and she is so happy with ALL her new friends. She has made quick friends with their dog which makes me happy because I didn't know how she would get along with other dogs. Apparently it is not a problem. They play, sleep, eat, and go for walks together. I am so happy for Cordery that she has a loving home with new furry friends. I will miss her desperately, but her new family and I have exchanged emails, phone, and Facebook friends so that they can send me pictures of my precious baby at home with her new family. What a great feeling to know she is with a wonderful family who truly loves her! Thanks.

     Let me begin by saying we are huge Jack Russell fans. We had our last one, Jackie, from 8 weeks until she was 13.5. We lost her two months ago and the quiet in the house was deafening. Some people might laugh when I say I had the same dream 11 times where my girl was 'telling me to adopt a senior Jack who needed a good home.' Same dream 11 times so I clearly got the message and started to look on the rescue sites for a Jack who needed us. I was set on a male because I didn't want to get caught up in comparing a new female to Jackie. I also thought after 13+ years, it was time to allow my husband to have a little guy to bond with. I fell in love with Conway at first glance; loved his little face and broken coat. He's been with us just a day and is making himself right at home as only a Jack can do. Thank you to his foster mom who sent daily doses of cuteness in the form of pictures and videos for two weeks until we able to arrange the time for the 9 hour round trip drive to pick him up. We feel so fortunate to be able to adopt Conway and have him join our little family. We're not really sure who rescued who at this point, but he's stolen our hearts. Jenna & Jeff Graham

     Thank you Rescue Me! Max found a good home with a lovely couple who have the proper space and time to spend with him. He even has a new sister Jack Russell Terrier named Annie. We've owned Max for 10 years, since he was a puppy, and while it was heartbreaking for me and my children to let him go we know it will be a much better environment for Max. It really helped the kids to be able to see Max's new home, meet the couple who were going to adopt him, and meet his new sister! Thank you Rescue Me!

     Today I met a wonderful woman who has offered me such great hope for the future of Milo, our dear Jack Russell, who was in need of a loving home. She called, less than 48 hours after I reluctantly posted his need for a home. She had lost her Jack Russell a couple of years ago and was looking for a companion, not only for herself, but for her other dog, whom she said had lost some of his spunk when his buddy had to be put to sleep. After swapping dog stories for about a half an hour, and hearing her obvious love for dogs, we agreed to meet at her house. I packed Milo's belongings in case the meeting went well and headed out on a trip that took nearly an hour. Shortly after we arrived, the dogs were lead outside, where her dog started to run around and Milo chased him. Then Milo ran, and her dog chased. She said she hadn't seen her dog run since he lost his buddy and this was exactly what she wanted for him. We visited for some time, as the dogs got to know each other. There was some posturing, and correcting, but for once, I saw no fear in Milo. She was very accepting of his total lack of manners, saying manners will come later. He ran in and out the dog door like he had done it all of his life. He chased squirrels and even met the cat (who I believe let him know he wasn't interested in playing with him at the moment). Before long, Milo came and laid at my feet, completely at ease. We both felt there was a great chance for Milo's success in her home. So, after a brief goodbye, I left. I was sad, naturally, but couldn't help feel elated at what a wonderful home Milo had found. I spent the whole drive home gushing to my husband about how well the meeting went and how happy I am for Milo. No sooner had I walked through the door, I got a call from Milo's new mom asking how I was doing. I assured her I was okay then she told me all about Milo's dinner and how he was doing. We have agreed to keep in touch. Thank you Rescue Me! Not only do I believe Milo has found a fabulous, loving home, I believe it has been a win for everyone!

     Such an ideal outcome! We wanted to find a home for Riley that was a good fit, and had actually turned down a couple potential adoptees. Then, one day I got a call from Kathy, and we chatted for a bit about why she would want to adopt Riley. They'd lost a Jack Russell last summer, and were looking for a 'sibling' for their other Jack Russell. It sounded like Riley would get lots of attention and even have someone to play with. Kathy showed up with pictures of her doggies and Riley looked just like her lost Jack, except for hers had more white coloring. Riley, being the smart guy that he is, knew something was up and was anxious but jumped right up to the passenger seat of her car and after giving me lots of smooches rode home with her. Kathy texted me that night to let me know that he was doing very well, and she was even getting kisses already! My heart is happy.

     We lost our long-time friend, Riley, to a tumor last Spring. She left a Jack Russell-sized hole in our hearts. I starting looking at our local Humane Society's website last fall, hoping to find another Jack Russell, but to no avail. Then my brother told me to try typing in, 'Indiana Jack Russell Rescue', and I found Rescue Me! I was instantly drawn to Jack. Not only was he close to my home and work, he sounded like the perfect dog for us. I work on my brother's farm, plus we have several other farms to visit and help care for. Since Riley has been gone nine months, I'm sure Jack will be very busy ridding the barns and sheds of all the critters that have moved in. We're looking forward to when the weather breaks. We will love seeing him in his element - doing what he was bred to do. Thank you, Rescue Me!, for helping us find Jack. We've only had him for a couple days, but he's already been a real blessing. He's my little friend!

     I found this little dog hiding in the weeds by my mailbox. We coaxed her into to the garage with food and water so she'd have a warm place to stay. Indoors was not an option due to another pet and family allergies. This little girl was so scared that it took a good two weeks of me dropping to my knees for her to let me pet her, and another two before she relaxed enough for me to pick her up. She stayed with us for about two months as I could not find a 'no kill' shelter or a foster family for her. With the weather getting colder and the coyote activity where I live, I knew I could not keep her. Desperately searching the web, I found Rescue Me! A very nice family came to meet her and took her home. I cannot believe the number of responses to my post on Rescue Me!, in such a short period of time. I am grateful that she now has a warm, safe place to stay.

     Bunny got adopted today! A wonderful woman named Angela contacted me through Rescue Me! last week and said she was interested in Bunny. I gradually supplied her with Bunny's biography, and she said she thought she had the perfect home for this cute little girl. Today, I placed her in the capable hands of an animal rescue transporter, who drove her to her new home. I just received an email and pictures of Bunny in her new home, and she looks like a happy girl. I could not keep her because of a conflict with one of my dogs, but now she will be the only dog, a role she is meant for. I am so thrilled that we have a happy ending here, and I so appreciate your organization's part in it. Thank you from the heart. Joyce Adams

     We are thrilled with Stella and so thankful to Kitty and Hunter for sharing her with us. After our Jack Russell passed away we knew we needed another dog and did not consider any other breed. With a large yard and the ability to take her wherever we go, including the office during the day, we looked for an older Jack Russell who needed a quiet home and would enjoy being part of our family. Stella is perfect and we look forward to many years together. She is beside me as I write this, stretched out on the floor with ears at attention.

     Miss Gidget was first rescued from a high kill shelter when she was a mere 8 weeks old. She was placed in several foster homes with wonderful people but they were not meant to be her people, until, one day her new humans fell in love with her and knew she was the one for them. After meeting Gidget, they immediately went home and started working on their yard to make it safe for their girl! I am happy to announce that one week later Gidget is in her new home with her humans and a feline sister! She has a wonderful yard to explore and a beautiful, soft bed and all the comforts of a loving home. We wish you and your new family many years of happiness together-we love you, Gidgey Girl!

     I took home Sushi with the hopes of finding a home for her for a friend, thinking it would be easy to find a home for her if I put her on Facebook. Not so! I asked my neighbors and friends to pass along the word that a small dog needed a home. Nothing. Thankfully after about three weeks of fostering Sushi, a groomer from a local pet store told me about Rescue Me! I immediately looked it up when I got home and found it very easy to post Sushi's information and a photo of her. In less than 24 hours I had multiple requests for more information about her. Each day when I checked my email there were at least two more inquiries about Sushi. Today, I drove Sushi to a PetSmart store about 30 minutes from my house to meet two potential families for Sushi. They both would have been great homes for her thanks to seeing her on your site!! They were from in state and both had driven at least thirty minutes to one hour to meet Sushi. Since she seemed like the perfect dog to be the only dog in the house, I adopted her to the person who was a single college student in their senior year of college and lived in a one bedroom apartment. They are going to adore her and treat her like the princess she is! Thank you so much for creating this easy to use site, and my cat and German Shepherd dog thank you, too!!!

     Scooby is our second dog adopted from the site. Scooby was adopted within a couple of weeks of posting. Their Jack Russell had passed away and they wanted another. The saying once a Jack you never go back is true. We ourselves recently adopted our fourth, we tend to adopt ones at eight years or older, although our first was a puppy. All dogs are a gift. We are the blessed ones. This site has already saved two families.

     Spaz went to live with a 9-year old girl who had for the last year, been looking online and researching what type of dog she wanted. Her parents told her that when they bought a house, she could get a dog. The whole family came out to visit Spaz. We spent several hours together, me getting to know them, and them getting to know Spaz. This family has a fenced in yard, and was very excited to be taking her home. I don't think I could have found Spaz a better home. While it was a very hard decision for me to make to re-home her, this family helped make it a little easier because I really believe they will give her a good, loving home. I still miss her, but I know that she is happy.

     After losing my little baby Salem, I knew she would want me to adopt another Jack Russell to love as much as I did her. My heart was so broken when I lost her, and I knew finding another would help me as much as I could help the one I adopted. I looked at many of those babies and I came across two that reached out to me. One which had been adopted by their foster home, and the other, Tucker. Tucker was special, he was deaf. I set up a time to meet Tucker. I knew I already loved him and upon meeting him, I knew he loved me. There was never a doubt that Tucker would be joining my little family. Tucker has been such a blessing to me. Not only did I receive a wonderful blessing in Tucker, I made a new friend, his foster mom, Shelby.

     ...The people who had Jackson told me his story, that their family member had rescued him from a puppy mill at the age of 2, and at the age of 5, Jackson's owner passed away. My daughter and I decided to go ahead and meet this little guy. For the first week I was worried he wasn't the right dog for me because he was so timid and mainly stayed on the couch and nowhere else until someone took them to bed with them. Now I'm so glad to have him here with us. He has come out of his shell and is doing great! Thank you to the folks who drove him here from out of town to meet us, not sure if we'd even be keeping him or not, and thank you to Rescue Me! for providing the service that made it possible for us to find Jackson.

     Today we met up with Ashley Fisher and her family to get Roscoe in Richmond Hill, Georgia. When we got there Roscoe was full of energy, and we could tell he came from a great family. I just hate that they couldn't keep him due to the dog hair making Ashley break out. Since we had gotten back to Florida and to his new home, he has checked everything out, claimed his spot on the couch and has settled in very well. I can't wait to take him on his first walk around his new neighborhood. :) Thank You so much, Ashley Fisher and Family, for Roscoe. He is such a great match to our family. And the kids and my family love him so much, they can't wait to come over and play with him.

     I posted my my Jack Russell and within a week I had about three responses. I went and met the person that was extremely interested in adopting him to see how he would interact with her grandchildren and other dogs. He was extremely happy and they loved him. After taking him to get his updated shots, I allowed Kush to go to his new home. I have received updates and pictures of how well he is adjusting, and I am very satisfied with the entire process. Kush now has the time and attention that he needs as well as plenty of exercise. Thank you, Rescue Me!

The couple are a huge fan of 'The Dog Whisperer' and have used his techniques on previous rescued dogs with great success. They felt that they could work with Kasper and after a weekend trial, Kasper had quickly shown signs of fitting into their routine. I've talked to them a couple of times and they are really enjoying Kasper. Thank you God and Rescue Me's Jack Russell Rescue!

     I am extremely happy and excited that I found a home for Zoey. My worry was she couldn't go to just any family and Rescue Me's Jack Russell Rescue allowed me to send her to a family that understands this breed of dog. Jack Russells have a lot of energy, and I did not want her to be abused for being who she naturally is: inquisitive, hunters, hyper, etc. She needed land and other dogs to keep her occupied and I found exactly that! The family appears to be loving and kind, they actually allow her to sleep with them and they have a combined four Acres of land for Zoey to roam and seven other small dogs to accompany her. I received approximately five responses from Rescue Me!, but they were after this family, so I think she's where she's meant to be, in a loving and caring environment full of land for her to run, run, run and play with her new family. Thank you SO much Jeff!!! This website is a safe haven for all Jack Russells it's not just an adoption site, but one that caters to each particular breed... Thank you for helping me find a safe home for my Zoey.

     I was on my way to work, and saw a Jack Russell limping across a busy road. He seemed disoriented, and I stopped on a safe spot to fetch him and take him to the local vet. Although cars were slowing down to avoid the little fellow, he was knocked down just before I could reach him. I rushed him to the vet as he was in shock and bleeding slightly. The vet treated him for shock and a dislocated joint. I then fostered him and was blessed to find a couple, Bev and Bushy, who were willing to take him in permanently. He is still traumatized due to past experience; however, Bev and I are going to work together to get him through this. I would like to express my deepest thanks to Rescue Me! for helping me find the angel called Bev. Rescue Me! is user friendly and the notifications are very helpful. Thank you!

     After calling every shelter and rescue I could find within a 200 mile radius, no one had room for Daisy. Our local shelter told me flat out she was 'unadoptable' due to to her age (10 years) and epilepsy, even though it is well managed. They faxed me a euthanasia agreement. Rescue Me! was the only self-service rescue site I could find. Within days of posting on Rescue Me!, I found an excellent home for my terminally-ill brother's beloved Jack Russell Terrier. Rescue Me! was a life-saver.

     Thank you, Rescue Me! We truly struggled with our decision to let our baby go. We decided as a family that we had to put her needs first. She was not a throw away. Sweetie is very much loved. Only the best for our baby. We all agreed that she would NOT go to a shelter. We posted her photo here and within hours, my phone was ringing and my email went nuts. The very next day, we got our wish. We wanted an older couple who would have more time at home with her... a family who had JRT's previously and would love her in spite of her having lived half of her life. She is an amazing companion dog and needs someone to love and who will love her each and every day. We are sad that she is now 2 1/2 hours away but happy that Rescue Me! connected her to the right home. If our situation changes, I will certainly consider adopting from here as well. God Bless, Cindy and Rescue Me! for giving our fur child a forever home.

Chester was turned into the Moreno Valley shelter as a stray, we picked him up on his last day there, he was a very easy going dog. He now has a perfect home thanks to Rescue Me!, allowing our rescue to make room for other dogs whose time is up.

     Dear Jeff, My dog Dubz was adopted this past weekend by a lovely couple and their daughter to live in their home. I received numerous emails from people who truly seemed like they would provide a good home for my pal. So the problem of choosing between the many good options of homes was a good problem to have. I love my dog but due to career change and relocation I was unable to give him the attention and care he deserved. It took a little while to convince myself he would be better off somewhere else. Luckily I found his new family and with the help of Rescue Me, I felt as comfortable as I could be in a truly testing situation. I would recommend your website to anyone in need of the help. Thank you again. -Alex Weldon

     Jeff Gold, Thank you for creating the 'Rescue Me' website! I used RescueMe.Org to find a new home for a Jack Russell Terrier named Cosmo. The dog belonged to my boyfriend's mother, who died of colon cancer. I thought it was going to be a huge challenge to find a suitable living situation for Cosmo since he doesn't get along well with other animals. To my surprise, I was soon contacted by a sweet couple whose only pet (a Jack Russell Terrier) had recently died of old age. What a great match! The wife is even retired, so she'll have lots of time to look after Cosmo. Using your website, I found an excellent home for the little guy in less than a week. Appreciatively, Kathryn

     Thank you NH Jack Russell Rescue. Otto, the dog I was fostering after my cousin put him in a local shelter, has finally found a new forever home because of your site. An 86 year old woman in Norton, MA lost her 92 year old husband this past spring, and then her 14 year old Bichon Frise in July. The woman has always owned dogs and wanted another. Her son saw Otto on this site and thought it would be a perfect fit as a Jack Russell was one of his mother's favorite breeds. The woman fell in love with Otto the moment she saw him, and he was just as comfortable with her, which is saying a lot, as he is a very nervous dog. Within half an hour Otto had jumped up on her couch and proceeded to take a nap. Hopefully these two lonely souls will be the perfect companions for each other during the remainder of their senior years together. God Bless you Otto and God Bless you Mary for giving Otto a new home. I will greatly miss him.

     After quite some time of trying to find just the right home, a lovely lady expressed great interest in Alvin after seeing him on this site. After a few conversations I decided she was the one! I was not going to let Alvin go to just anyone; the family had to know how Jacks are-energetic, mischievous, always one step ahead. She had a Jack for quite some time that had passed away & was looking for a special Jack to adopt when she found Alvin. She often said she just 'had a feeling' when she looked at his pic & it was meant to be, so to speak. We drove the almost 4 hours to take Alvin to his new family & we were not disappointed! As hard as it was to let Alvin go, we knew immediately he would be in loving hands! I've received a few email updates & Alvin is fitting in just fine! I couldn't be happier with Rescue Me-this site has helped more than any other media outlet in finding a good, loving home for Alvin. Thank you!

     Sixteen years ago we adopted a one year old Jack Russell Terrier by the name of McGee. His original owner said she was moving out of state and could not take him. Well needless to say the lady never moved. I think that he was just too much for her. After having McGee for a few weeks we really fell in love with the breed. I lost McGee January 23, 2012. He was 17 years old. I miss him terribly. I was looking on line for a Jack Russell Rescue in Illinois, but did not find a dog that would get along with other dogs. I decided to look in Indiana and that is where I spotted Alvin. I spoke to Crystal a few times on the phone and we e-mailed each other. This past Sunday Crystal and her beautiful family brought Alvin to our home. It was love at first sight. He fit in great!! I have three other dogs and they all get along wonderfully. He is such a warm and affectionate little guy. We are thrilled!!! I can't tell you how happy he has made all of us. Thank you Crystal and family for Alvin. He has made our home complete!!!!! RESCUE'S ARE THE BEST!!!!!!

     Molly was adopted by a wonderful woman in Columbus Ohio who recently lost her Jack Russel terrior and was very lonely. Her neighbor contacted me through the Rescue Me post and within a week Molly was in her new home getting all the love and toys that she deserves. It is a very happy ending even though there were a few tears shed as we left Molly with her new family because we had grown attached to her. Fostering, while it is a wonderful thing, never does get easier when you have to say good bye.

     Thanks for your website Jeff! We had both of our Jack Russells for 6+ years and had to let them go due to life & career changes after the birth of our son. We had tried for a month to get any response from the original breeder/rescue agent (Claddagh Kennels) without one returned e-mail or phone call. I reached out to other rescue agents listed around the state of Ohio with the same amount of success. Finally I tried your website. Your website asked all of the right questions, that an adoptive owner would want to know. Plus gave us an area to describe any other behavior quirks the dogs have. Both of my dogs were adopted by a couple from Texas with another Jack of their own who is about the same age. Although my wife and I were really sad to see them go, we were comforted by the fact that we found great adoptive owners via your site. I have already recommended your site to another Jack owner.
