     Rusty's elderly owner could no longer care for him. I found out on a Tuesday afternoon. I posted a Rusty's picture on this site on Tuesday evening. I received a response within 45 minutes of the posting and the lovely couple who drove from a nearby city on Wednesday to meet Rusty fell in love instantly. Rusty is now in another loving home! Thank you, Rescue Me!

     Thanks so much to Rescue Me! We got so many inquiries about this little angel. Luckily, a wonderful couple has adopted Ozzie. They called me today to tell me that he is happy in his new home, and likes his new sister, Bailey. And, or course he has already stolen the hearts of his new parents, and human sister. I already have two rescue dogs at home, and Ozzie was supposed to be temporary. With the help of Rescue Me, we accomplished this. We are so thankful, and happy!

     Thank you, Rescue Me, for being there!!! You truly did just that, you rescued me, and my pal, Tucker. As difficult as it is to give up a wonderful Jack Russell, it is a relief knowing he is going to a good home. To meet the people, and choose where he goes gives me some peace. I know Tucker will be happy in his new home, with a stay at home dad! Just what he needs!!! Thank you, Rescue Me!!!!

     I put my sweet pup that had to be re-homed on dozens of sites. I only had responses from Rescue Me. The woman that ended up adopting my dog is just perfect for him. She was specifically looking for another Jack Russell so this site was perfect. Thanks, Rescue Me, for helping me find my dog the perfect new home. This was very hard for me to do, but with your help, my mind is at ease knowing he is right where he should be!

     Jake is an absolutely perfect dog for me! I was a bit concerned at first because he is only five and has pretty high-energy, but he and I do fine in that area! Since I've been an animal person for 76 years now, I don't come apart at the seams if a doggie or horse (no longer a possibility in my life) isn't perfect. Jake is certainly not perfect as he shivers and shakes his way through thunderstorms, refuses to go out into the backyard if it's sprinkling rain or if it's night, etc. When he refuses to do something I stop to sadly ponder what might have happened to him in his five short years. The best part of Jake is his eagerness to please, his hard concentration on what my words might be telling him, and his little non-stop, wagging tail when he thinks we're headed out the door for a truck ride or a quick walk around the block and his 'kisses' on my cheek. He's so easy to please! And really the best of all is his hopping up upon the bed to snuggle under the blankets with me at night. This is my second rescue JRT after many years of labs and border collies when I was young, and believe me, I have become extremely attached to this JRT/mixed breed. They are wonderful, easy to love and extremely bright as far as I'm concerned. Thanks to Rescue Me and all involved in bringing Jake and me together!

     We adopted Jackson several months ago, shortly after I had to make the decision to put my dog of 17 years to sleep. We did already have another Jack Russell about the same age. We weren't really sure how he was going to interact because he had never really been around any other dogs. So, we set up a meeting to meet Jackson and his family. He was sitting in the back of their SUV. They opened the back and he popped up to say hello. I reached in to pet him and he gave me a growl. I knew then and there that if he and Ashby got along he was the one for us. We set up a time the next day for them to come over so they could meet each other and play off leash. It was not very long before they were running around the yard playing like they had been with each other their whole lives. Jackson has truly filled a void in a place where there was a hole. Ashby and Jackson are now best buddies. It has also made Ashby even a little less hard headed. We are truly blessed to have met his previous family. And all they wanted in return for Jackson was to know that he was going to have a good, loving home with a fenced in yard so that he could run and play. Thank you, Rescue Me.

     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.

     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!

It was a very hard decision to make for us. A very gracious, understanding woman looking to open her heart and home, she lives five hours away, and is the perfect person for our Cabby. Bittersweet ending for us but thanks to Rescue Me! we were able to place Cabby in a safe, loving home, and his new owner is all smiles.

     Thank you Rescue Me! Within a few days of posting my baby, someone contacted me with interest in her. They had just lost their beloved dog after 15 years and were looking for another to love. They read my story and fell in love with her before they met her. She is now loving her new four legged brothers and sisters, as she romps on one acre of fenced land contained on a nature preserve. I couldn't be happier! Thank you so very much! I've just posted recommendations about your site to all my friends in the hopes that others will find your amazing service, too!

     I am so grateful to have had Rescue Me! to help find a wonderful home for my Jack Russell, Annie. Were it not for Rescue Me!, I fear that I would have had to take Annie to the local pound. Annie's new owners stepped up to help her even before they were able to make the drive to pick her up by paying for a needed vet visit. I know that she will be loved and well taken care of in her new home. Thank God for Rescue Me! and for such loving and committed animal lovers!

     Beau was adopted, and the family even decided to take his sister Bella so they would not have to be separated. It was hard on me to part with them but they are happy and safe in a loving home. They are settling in with their new family quite nicely. Thank you.

     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!

     Kasper was adopted after a long year of searching for the right family. The couple that adopted Kasper were actually looking to rescue a greyhound, they found out that the local Greyhound Rescue shelter closed and searched the web. That's when they happened across Rescue Me! and read the desperate plea for a safe and loving home for Kasper. 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.

I have a feeling that Bandit will continued to be loved and spoiled like he was in our home.

     Sugar was adopted by a great family in Ocala who needed a playmate for their other Jack Russell. They have updated me and can't say enough great things about her and how much they love her. I truly wanted her adopted outside of Miami because that's where I found her running around hungry and thirsty. There's far to many dogs here in the same situation. Thank you Rescue Me! for giving Sugar that opportunity.
