     My mother is about to pass away and I'm unable to keep her senior dog. I posted her on Rescue Me. Within an hour, she had a potential adopter. We met the next day to introduce my mom's dog to her dog, and it all went so smoothly. Now, this senior dog, who otherwise wouldn't have had much of a chance, has a wonderful new fur-ever home (with a new dog brother)! Thank you, Rescue Me, for the service you provide!!!

     Buddy came to us this scared, timid little guy due to being abused by someone. Now, almost three weeks later he is playing, running with our three other fur babies, one with we rescued from Rescue Me! He is just a joy to have. We just love him. Thanks, Rescue Me.

     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!

     I received a few inquiries after I posted the long narrative on Sasse on Rescue Me and we finally chose a new owner for Sasse after arranging a meeting in person. I'm happy Sasse got a new owner that is retired and spending all his time with her. I will say most callers enjoyed the thorough description of Sasse and her personality.

     My number one priority was finding a good caring home for my Jack Russell. Within an hour of posting, I received a response. I also received two more responses, but the first one is the one I met up with at the park. I thank the heavens for Rescue Me. It broke my heart, but I couldn't take care of my dog anymore and she went to a very nice, retired couple.

     This website is amazing. I am glad I found Rescue Me; it made it so I can find a good home for my dog. People were quick to get a hold of me to take her home. It made it possible to find her a good loving home so I didn't have to bring her to a shelter. Penny is now in her new home and couldn't be happier.

     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.

     We met with a lovely mother and daughter earlier today, who found us through our Rescue Me posting. They came with their dog, asked questions about our dog and told us about their home and other animals. You can just see how much they loved all their animals. We were so glad he found a forever home with a family that can really take care of him!

     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.

     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.

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.

     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 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!

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.

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.

     CJ is an awesome dog that only a Jack Russell fan could understand. High energy and intense focus could get him in trouble in a flash. But his new family were insistent on giving him a chance to blend with their three other dogs. And it has been an ending even better than we could have even imagined. He has the opportunity to play to his heart's content with his new best friend, he has the run of the house and a huge yard to frolic in. A happy ending for our seven year old rescue. He is a very special boy!! Thanks, Rescue Me.

The nice thing is that she is very close by and I am able to visit her every now and then and I am excited about that. Sincere Regards, Edna Smith

     Our boy, Jaxon, has been adopted by a wonderful family that lives right in our same neighborhood. My husband and I just knew that this was the right family for him. We both felt it the first time we met them. When they came back the second time they brought their JRT, Ace, and Jaxon got along with him immediately. I know very soon they will be best of friends. We are heartbroken to see our boy go, but at the same time feel so blessed by this family who I know will love and care for him as much as we do. And we'll get to see some times and maybe even be able to dog sit for them. Thank you Rescue Me for helping us find the perfect match.

     I was very impressed with Rescue Me! I posted Taz at night and by the next morning had someone interested! We emailed back and forth, found the time to bring him to them and he has been there ever since and he is loving it! I was so worried about posting him on a site and who might want him, but I am pleased with how things turned out!

     We inherited two Jacks from friends who recently passed away. They were about to be put down when we stepped in. We listed both on Rescue Me and have successfully found a home for one through your great service. We still have a ten pound, long legged female (see Annie) and have gotten inquiries on her too! This is a really good way to avoid putting down wonderful dogs that otherwise would be. THANK YOU!

     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.
