     Chester was adopted three weeks ago. He found a home with a nice lady. She has reported that Chester is getting along well with her female beagle. I am glad that he has found a new loving home thanks to Rescue Me.

     Brownie was abandoned, and all efforts to find his former home resulted in nothing. He was found wandering around aimlessly, limping and sad. He was taken in by a family that could not provide a forever home for him. After posting his story here, a lovely, woman older woman who wanted a pet adopted him. She took him to the vet and found that he is seven or eight years old and is in relatively good health. Brownie is now in his FURever home and a happy dog. Thank you, Rescue Me.

     Little Chrissy was adopted last week. The home initially was to be a temporary foster home, as they already have two other rescues and were unsure how it would work out. This loving, young couple absolutely fell in love with Chrissy instantly, and so did both of their rescues, who are MUCH bigger dogs. Everyone loves her and they send me pictures and updates daily. Chrissy is receiving the love and care she so well deserves, and last I heard she was outside galloping around with the gang in their fenced in, large property. Initially she was a little cautious, but she has bonded with the two gentle giants already living there. They are very protective and adoring of her. All three doggies have spaces on the couch and the last picture I received she was snuggling with Blue (a very large hound dog/mix). Chrissy has trouble getting up onto the couch, but she takes running starts and usually pulls herself up by herself. The other dogs step in and nudge her when she slips and also stand by her when she sleeps in her brand new bed. This story had a happy ending and Chrissy is smiling in every picture I see! Thank you, Rescue Me!

     Jax got a wonderful home today! I found the best possible home for him and know he will have a wonderful life! He will be the only pet and will be greatly spoiled. His new mommy was looking for another lil' dog since her last one passed from old age issues recently. I already got my first update today on how Jax is doing. This is what was said: 'We went to my daughter's house and he played with her dog. They got along well. Then on the way back home, he slept like an angel in his new bed. We've played in the yard, and with his toys, had his evening meal, and now he is making himself at home. He gives me sugar and his Daddy sugar too. He will jump up with me on the sofa and sit in my lap. We will send pictures later. I will be following Jax on Facebook!' Thank you Rescue Me for finding Jax a great home!

     We found our prince, Pogo, on Rescue Me, he reminded us of a tiny version of a large American bulldog we lost several years ago to cancer. It was an instant connection and I knew he was meant for us. He is an 18 month old Jack Russell/Chihuahua mix. He makes everyone in my house so happy, even our seven year old Bichon. He is perfection, and he is cuddling me as I write this review. I am so so glad I found this site and found my precious boy, Pogo!

     Pogo was the easiest dog that I have ever had under my foster care. I was so taken with this loving little guy that I was considering adopting him myself. Then I received an email and began corresponding with a nice lady that was so taken with his picture. She and her family made arrangements with me to meet at the dog park. I thought maybe that when they saw him, he wouldn't be what they expected. They drove approximately 100 miles round trip, and I believe that he was meant to be a part of their family! The entire family seemed perfect for him, even their dog accepted him. Pogo was hesitant about leaving my arms and leaving me, his loving foster mom of five weeks, but I received pictures of him with individuals in the family and my eyes filled with tears of happiness for this little guy and for the his newly adoptive family! Thank you, Rescue Me.

     God sent this little fellow into our lives to help heal the pain, loss, and loneliness we had from loosing our Big O Fellow, Marley last year. This little guy will get all the love and care that Marley would have gotten if he were still here. The Lord never makes mistakes, he will answer prayers and here's one that has been answered. Not only do we get another little guy to love and care for, but this little guy gets a forever home, his own ready made family with a little sister too, Bebe. God is good all the time. Thanks, Rescue Me.

     Everything was so easy in finding Wishbone. He is a great Jack Russell mix and such a loving dog. The people at PAWS were great and the process was easy. Very clean facility also. I was also in touch with a foster parent of Wishbone and received lots of information about him. Wishbone is going to be a great addition to my family.

     I have had Jack Russell dogs for 17 years and since losing my last one two months ago I would occasionally go to the rescue site and see all the little faces that needed some love. I came across Diego and there was just something about this little fellow that tugged at my heart; for a week I kept going back and viewing him and decided I would again open my heart a little fur-baby. The application process went very smoothly (I was impressed with the promptness with which my inquiries were addressed). They are very thorough when accessing and getting veterinary care for their rescues. Diego is the sweetest, loving little dog, just as Amy said he was. Thank you, Rescue Me, for helping me find my furever friend!

     We were very worried about giving Sassy away and making sure we were finding a forever home for her. There were great response to our post on Rescue Me. The wonderful people that ended up with Sassy just gave me a very comfortable feeling and they ask all the right question. They drove three hours to meet with us and let us spend some time getting to know them and letting Sassy get to know them. They just gave me that feeling you get when you just know this is right. They called to let me know how she did on the trip back and have kept in touch to let me know how things are going. I know she has a forever home and this is the perfect home for her. Thanks everyone for all the inquiries.

     I had thought I had found a forever home for my little guy, but he was given back to me after only a day. I was sad and didn't think he was given much of a chance, but it turned out to be a better situation. I soon found a family that was so excited to adopt him. He will have so much love and attention for the rest of his life. I had other serious inquiries from Rescue Me, and it is such a great resource for people looking for Jacks. Thank you!

     I have never fostered a dog before, but when I found Elway, an abandoned little cutie, my heart went out to him. He was so sweet and deserved a home where he was loved forever. I could not keep him because my job requires me to be away for days at a time, or I would have kept him in a heartbeat. I needed to find him the perfect loving home, and after posting on Rescue Me, I was contacted by quite a few people. It was hard to pick, because all of the people that responded were so kind and he would have been happy with any of them. It was so hard to say goodbye to him, but I am excited for the little guy to have a family forever. Thank you!

     Justin got adopted by a wonderful couple. He was owned by a woman who recently died. The police took him after the death, but he escaped from police and got picked up by Animal Services three days later. He had a large gash on his hip that required stitches. He was hurt, angry, and hated the cone on his head. He bit at everyone who came near, especially men. He was in the killing room when a lady from Animal Services called me. He was rescued 'just in time', hence the name Justin. He was boarded for a month and became a sweetheart and loving and kind, once again. He now has a new family who loves him. The family contacted the deceased woman's family and told them that Justin was ok. Can't get any better than this ending. Thanks, Rescue Me. -Jan

     I posted my dog, Petey, for adoption. Within two hours, we found him a really great home. I couldn't believe that it happened so fast and was so easy.

I would recommend Rescue Me to anyone who needs help placing your pet.

She is thriving in her new home, and I receive updates regularly on how she is doing. Thank you Rescue Me!

     Thank you Rescue Me for connecting us with a wonderful family for our beloved dog, Rupert. While he was beloved, my daughter, his mother became ill and could not care for him and my travels made it impossible for me to keep him. Now he has moved in with Susan and has two acres of new land to explore and a new mom who has promised to take him out on frequent walks and get him back to his fighting weight. I am so relieved that we did not have to take him to a shelter and that he is going to have such a great life!

     Thank you Rescue Me! We were under the gun (so to speak) and had to find a new home for Scooter ASAP. He belonged to my mother-in-law who had to be placed in a nursing home unexpectantly. We are not allowed to have pets and our local Humane Society had no room. We had four responses in less than 24 hours and were able to select an awesome new home for Scooter. He'll have five acres to roam as he lives out the rest of his life.

     I love to share the wonderful experiences I've had with the Rescue Me team. A few months back, I was searching for a companion to replace the two pups that I lost in a divorce. I found a Chihuahua/Schnauzer mix that rescued me and we became real buddies. Then a couple of weeks ago, we decided that it was time to find another companion for both of us. We turned again to Rescue Me and found the perfect addition in a Chihuahua/Jack Russell Terrier mix. These two girls have become fast friends that love to play, eat and sleep together. Everyone on the Rescue Me team has been so caring of the adoptions and personally care about these animals that it has turned me into a real advocate. I tell anyone who will listen about the organization and encourage them to visit the websites. Here's to your continued success and thanks for Rescueing Me!

     I got this humble but old Jack Russell wire coat terrier last week through Rescue Me. His name has been changed to Jackson. Jackson's dog persona is friendly to all he meets of the two legged or other four legged creatures. Except he does not like cats nor his allergy medications, probably from some pass incident on his time living on a farm. He looks sad in his picture, but I can assure you he feels the love from his new owner. Jackson gets fed two, gourmet Blue Buffalo dog meals a day with chopped pieces of boiled chicken or cheddar cheese, plus a morning and evening stroll. He likes his fluffy pillow in his cage in the evening. Jackson understands at 9:00pm he must go to his caged bed. I leave his cage door open, but have caught him jumping on the end corner of my bed to get close to his new pack leader in the middle of the night. All I have to say is, ''Jackson, really? Ah, no.' He goes right back to his bed in his cage with the door open. Anyway, Jackson has destroyed three stuffed dog toys with squeaky innards which look like animals: a hedgehog, fox and a monkey. The stuffed red crab has squeaky innards, but it does not interest him. I guess it looks too fake. I am glad I got Jackson, he is a joy to have around and is loved by myself and my family.

     It was a very tough decision look for a new home for my 10 year old Jack Russell, Jorge. We have had her since she was a puppy and we all love her very much. Unfortunately, Jorge didn't get along well with our cat (and would attack her if she got near her) so we have lived with gates and closed doors for 10 years. Jorge is a very sweet dog who loves to cuddle and give kisses, but the stress of trying to keep the cat secure was getting to be too much. I refused to ever just drop her at a shelter and didn't want to give her to anyone who wouldn't be open to sharing updates with us as time went on. I decided to try this site and had Jorge posted. I received a call within one or two days from someone who had a three year old Jack (rescued) and was looking for a playmate/partner for her. We met and spent time and the decision was made that they would take Jorge home. I won't lie, I cried, a lot! (Still some tears a day later..) but so far I have received two updates and pictures on how well Jorge is doing in her new home. I was worried I may have made the wrong decision, but their openness to share updates/pictures with us, and seeing/hearing how well Jorge is doing after only one day... My heart is a little less heavy and tears of sadness are slowly turning to tears of happiness knowing she is going to have a great life without the stress of doors/gates. Thank You!

     Miss Franny was a very special rescue dog. I am a Jack Russell Terrier Rescue but my close friend wanted a Chihuahua around nine years ago. Well, Miss Franny was left in a trailer to die. I saw her on dog transport whereby they were looking for help for a special needs terrier. With a lot of long distance telephone calls, I managed to locate someone named Francis Bailer who lived near the actual trailer. She in turn took the little dog in for around a week and then I went online to find a transporter. A lady answered my plea and said she would drive the 300 miles to get the little dog. She could take the little dog several states closer because her daughter was going to have a baby and that is where she was headed. I looked through my contacts and found someone that I worked with before on transport that lived four blocks from where this lady was going. We got the little girl transported to a nearby metropolis whereby I picked her up. My friend took one look at this special needs little girl and adopted her. She lived with her for eight years. She was a little over a year where I first received her. Then my friend became homeless and could not keep her, so I had a lifetime guarantee on her and took her back. I had her here at our rescue for several months and posted her on Rescue Me. A very nice couple came to see another dog and I happened to have Miss Franny outside with her. They took one look at Miss Franny and said that they wanted to adopt her. She is a special needs little soul that was born with three legs. Miss Franny is doing well in her new home and is very happy and content. Thank you Rescue Me for being there for our rescue. P.S. Miss Franny had a published article in Fetch Magazine about her journey a few years back. Thanks again. Penny & Crew - First Friends Animal Rescue Inc.

     I was devasted when I realized that my sweet boy needed a new home. I posted him on Rescue Me and within a matter of hours his new home was found. The new owners were a godsend. They have emailed me and sent pictures showing his progress. This would never have been possible nor would have the peace that I am feeling without the Rescue Me resource. Thanks so much....I love you Wrigley.

     Rescue Me was a blessing. I cared for a Jack Russell for a short time. She was my best friend. I came to an impossible decision that I had to find her another family to take her as I could not. I didn't want her to be mistreated or an outside dog. This site helped me find a good home.

     The day after we posted Naomi to be adopted, we were contacted by a great lady who had lost her JRT. She had two other dogs, and lots of other animals. The dogs all got along and this lady has lots of land, and a rural setting. It was a great fit and knowing our girl has a new home is such a great fit makes surrendering her just a little easier. Thanks, Rescue Me.

     I am very thankful that there was a rescue site such as Rescue Me that was able to assist me so quickly in getting Domino to his new forever home. I am so grateful to Teri for adopting him and the photos she has sent with him adjusting to his new home and other furry siblings are adorable. I am glad to see that he is getting the love and care he deserves in his older age. Thank you again to Rescue Me and Teri for making his dreams come true!

     Thank you, Rescue Me. Scrappy was adopted by a wonderful couple who fell in love with him immediately. They came by to visit him and ended up playing catch and tug of war. Jeanne said 'we have never owned a dog that played with us before.' They were so excited. Of course, Scrappy and all his toys and belongings went home with them. Pictures and emails since have been a wonderful Vet visit and sleeping in bed with them. I hope you have a happy, forever home Scrappy. We love you.

     I am very happy to have found Rescue Me. I rescued a Jack Russell and I wanted to get a playmate for Annie. When I looked on the Jack Russell rescue site I saw other dogs that caught my eye and I was willing to travel to get them. One day I saw Ruby. I knew she was the one to complete my family. I was so nervous to send the email until finally I did and Randy responded. I could not wait to meet her. I met Ruby with my Annie and now my family is complete. Ruby is my heart. She is very special to us. Annie and my cats are Ruby's bodyguards. We love her and we would like to thank Randy for giving us a wonderful dog(daughter) like Ruby. My girls and I love to shop and play at the park. Ruby also likes to help cook dinner by guarding the kitchen. I love her so much it has only been almost two weeks and I really feel as if she has been with us longer. I would also like to thank Mr. Jeff Gold for providing a service to help us adopt our new family members. Thank you, thank you. You are truly a blessing to us all.

     As hard as it was to give up Riley, I knew it was the best decision for him. He has been adopted! I'm so happy that Riley is in a loving home. He has a big yard to play in and cuddles in bed with his new mommy. His new mommy is great and texts me updates and pictures. I can also visit him! I'm so happy for Riley and his new family, I know that he's in a great place. Thanks, Rescue Me.

     Our son called with an 'unusual' request...'Can you keep my new dog until I move to where I can have two pets?'. Long story short, my wife and I took in his two year old 'rescued' Jack Russell and had her four months until he got out of a lease and moved. We had NEVER owned a dog (had some cats years ago) but were going through 'withdrawal' after we gave her back so we decided to look for our own JR. We found 'Zoe' [Rescue Me ID 14-12-21-00194] on your site only 50 miles from us and this 10 month old JR/Chihuahua mix is 'just what the Dr. ordered' for our needs!

     I am so very happy to tell you that Bouncing Roxanne B was adopted through Jack Russell Rescue Me by a family and is now a couch potato. I saw a photo of her wearing a Valentine's sweater with little hearts on it, sleeping on a blanket on the family couch and she is well loved by her new parents. She is taken for daily walks by her Mom, and has a big brother Jack Russell named Buster. She gets to ride in the family car, got proper medical care, and even a bath and grooming. I am so grateful to BB's new parents for loving her the way she deserves to be loved. She is one lucky puppy to have a new home where she can experience the best life has to offer. Thank you to Michelle for opening her heart to BB!

     I wanted to make sure I found a good home for Coconut with someone that had experience with Jack Russells. About an hour after I posted Coconut's story on the Rescue Me site, I started getting inquiries. The very first person that contacted me seems perfect. We talked on the phone and via email, shared pictures and then scheduled a visit. Coconut connected to her immediately and I'm so glad I've found a good new home for her with someone that will give her all the love and attention she deserves.

     We lost our dog, Henry, a terrier mutt, to an autoimmune illness. We loved him and miss him every day. Coming home and entering the house with no dog was sad and lonely. Everyone told me not to get another dog right away. I waited five days and then contacted Rescue Me about Kali. I met her owner, a lovely woman, who knew this dog needed more time and attention than she could devote because of her other responsibilities. Kali is such a good dog, she likes being here, and I can't wait to take her swimming in the creek when it warms up. I wanted another dog, but the adoption fees in this area are $300+ with many stipulations. This organization has worked very well for us. I recommend Rescue Me to anybody who can meet face to face, see what, where, how your dog can live. I care about her former owner, she knows Kali is doing great with us. We will keep in touch.

     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!

     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.

     I just wanted to tell you how thrilled I was with the response for my rescue dog, Molly. She came from a very high-kill shelter. I knew she was special (although no one wanted her there) and when I posted on Rescue Me, I got over ten adoption inquiries within one week. I know she was a STAR but this was incredible. The people were fighting over who was going to get her. Molly is now in her new home with loving parents and best friend Rhett the Jack Russell terrier mix. What a sweet ending! Thank you Jeff -Rescue Me is amazing!

     It broke my heart to give up Penny for adoption because of my health, but Rescue Me was the best thing to happen for both of us. I was contacted within the first hour of posting by a wonderful couple over 400 miles away who wanted her as a companion for a Jack Russell Mix that already owned. They made an eight hour round trip drive to pick her up. I packed her favorite stuffed tiger and blanket plus her other goodies. She is going to a loving home, and they have promised to send updated emails and photos of her progress. Thank you so much for such a wonderful service.

     My heart is overjoyed at the response I received for Rimmi needing a new home! I told our children I wish I could clone him. (Just kidding, of course.) He is a great dog and would bring each responder a smiley face, but there is only one Rimshot, and we believe he is where he should be. There are children old enough to know how to treat a dog. This is my first experience using an online service, but boy, did Rescue Me come through! I have made a hundred dollar donation, hoping this will help in some way for the cause of the doggies. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
