     I've been a member of this website for a while, but was in the midst of moving so I was unable to adopt. I closed on my house the same night I logged in and found this little gem. Khalessi is a ray of sunshine to me. In 2011, I lost my black and tan male dachshund due to age. He passed at the age of 18. After losing him, I said I didn't think I could love another Doxie the way I did him. Once I joined Rescue Me, my feelings began to change. Now that Khalessi is here, I know adopting her at this moment was the right thing to do. Adopting a rescued pet means a life saved, and she's so worth it.

     A family with two children came out for a meet and greet with Hans. While I was a little concerned that Hans may be too much dog for children ages five and eight, Hans was great with the children. He seemed to sense they were small and he needed to be gentle. Hans has waited a very long time to find his forever home and the home he did find was well worth the wait. They love him and he loves them. He is young enough, he will grow up with the children and they will be best of buddies. We know little about Hans' background, we rescued him from a kill shelter and he had been picked up running loose. No one came in to claim him. He will have a great life now as a family member. Thank you, Rescue Me!

I was very impressed with Toni and her family that drove a long way to pick him up! I highly recommend Rescue Me. -Morgan

     We just adopted Buttons. She is a wonderful, sweet, smart, energetic girl. I know her former owners had circumstances that made it impossible to give her the companionship and attention she needs and deserves. My elderly Mother just lost her 15 year old Doxie. She was so unhappy and this little darling has made her smile non-stop! Buttons is now a 'farm dog'. We have acreage and lots of interesting critters for her to get to know. I am so thankful that her former owners love her enough to let her go. It was very hard for them and I truly admire them. Buttons has a forever home, and I am so happy she is part of our family! Thank you, Rescue Me!

Izzy is now in the home of the one of the first people who called me from seeing her posted on your site. After a week I will check on her to make sure it is going well and that she has her forever home. I have heard from a lot of great caring people on Rescue Me and would highly recommend it to others. Thanks so much.

     I'm sure no one has had a success story like mine. I had a few people contact me for my baby, Angel. There was one lady that stood out among the others. She and her husband and their son were more than what I expected to find. Angel would be treated just as she was treated at home with me. The only reason I was giving Angel up was I had to move and I could not afford to pay the deposit for having an animal. Stephanie and Robert came to my house to pick her up. As they were leaving, I was crying because I was going to miss Angel so much. About an hour later, I got a phone call from Stephanie saying that she cried all the way home and knew how she would have felt should it have been her baby. She then informed me that they talked it over, and they wanted to pay my deposit so I could keep Angel. They wouldn't take no for an answer. So, I still have my little girl with me and I have met two new friends. They also wanted to update her shots this year and every year. God sent them to me, I firmly believe. Stephanie and I text every day. I now have two new best friends. I love you Stephanie and Robert. Thank you, Rescue Me, for putting us together.

     After finding out that we were expecting our second child in two years, we knew that our beloved dogs needed a new home to get all of the love and attention that they deserve. They really were our first children so this decision was extremely hard. I wanted the adoption to go quickly because it was so painful. When our dog groomer recommended this site, I was nervous at first, but after posting them, I was quickly put at ease as I saw the amount of people looking for dogs to love. After a few screenings, my husband and I found a wonderful couple. The entire process was hard but took four days. I could not be more grateful to Rescue Me for making the re-homing process so easy for my family!


Sender: William Wright     Date: January 30, 2016 _
     I am sure that even though my heart is breaking right now, I did the right thing. My dogs will have what they deserve, a good life... A better life that I could not give them. Thank you, Debbie and Debbie, for being guardian angels and taking care of something very precious to me. And thanks to Rescue Me! It took less than a week.

     I found a lovely family to take my super weenie dog! I posted her, and in no time I got several replies, I was able to respond to several people and find a perfect home for my Sammy. Also I was blessed because a rescue for dachshunds reached out to me, and was able to provide medical care and find a home if I was unable to place her myself. It was very bittersweet but I am so thankful to this site. You helped me place my Sammy! Thank you so much, Rescue Me!

     We posted my sister-in-laws Dachshund, Anna Bell (my sis-in-law died unexpectedly this month). She was adopted very quickly. We were unable to care for Anna Bell because my wife is undergoing major back surgery. I'm disabled and unable to look after her myself. Rescue Me has been a blessing! I highly recommend the site and donating what ever you can afford to them!

     I am so pleased with my success in finding two doting new parents for my Rascal. I had been looking for a good match for about three months before posting on Rescue Me. Two nights ago, I stumbled across Rescue Me online, posted his information and picture, went to bed. When I woke up in the morning and checked my email, to my surprise, I had a prospect! We made arrangements to meet which required a four hour round trip ride in the car. As soon as we got there, I knew this was just what I had been searching for. Rascal liked the couple and I loved watching him explore their fenced in yard. It was painful to leave him, but I wanted what was best for Rascal. 48 hours later, and I am grateful to the new owners and Rescue Me for helping me find a good home for Rascal.

     I needed to find a forever home for my sister's dachshund, LuLu. My sister is dying of pancreatic cancer, and due to my full time job, I am not able to give her the time and attention she needed. I posted on Rescue Me, and, within an hour, I had a number of inquiries. By the end of the day, I had found her the most amazing home where she will be treated like a princess. Rescue Me is such a great place to help you find the right home for any pet.

     Cece was adopted by a very nice family that recently lost their Dachshund to cancer. Their little dog's buddy had become very depressed and lonely with the lost of its friend. The family had a history of adopting dachshunds and chose to find another adoptee to replace their fury family member that they recently lost. We were pleased that they chose Cece. She will make a great addition to their family. She is a loving and nurturing little dachshund. We very please with the experience with Rescue Me and the placement of Cece, we know she will have a great new home.

     We are so pleased with the results of Rescue Me. Our little Theo found the perfect new owner. After only posting Theo's information over the weekend, we were contacted by a wonderful woman that saw his picture. We exchanged information about his needs and her desires as a Dachshund owner, they were a perfect match for each other. This kind woman drove all the way to pick up Theo to give him a new home. We were very excited about where he was going and his new life, not just for him, but also for his new owner too. We had never heard of this website until we started looking for a place to assist us in finding a home for two little Dachshunds. Within days, we have received quality people inquiring about our furry friends that need a good home. We just wanted to say thank you, Rescue Me.

     Thanks to Rescue Me, we were fortunate enough to find a young family to adopt Emma and Lucy today. They have two young children and she doesn't work outside the home. They had rescued a Doxie 10 years ago, at age four, and had until she passed away at age 14. They were delighted to get our dogs and I think they will be a good fit for Emma and Lucy. We are happy that they won't have to be crated any longer. They have a doggie door and a securely fenced back yard so the dogs can go in and out on their own. I'm so happy we were able to use this site to help find this family!

A complete stranger (I don't know if I should tell her name) contacted me, and very generously sent me a check, to help pay for her food and medication. Her generosity allows me to keep her for the next few months, as I wait to hear about a possible job. Your site sent me a very rare angel. I'm so appreciative of her help, and if I get this job, I won't have to give up my best friend and very much loved pet. Once I'm back on my feet, I'll send a check expressing my gratitude.

     I cannot express enough the importance of the service Rescue Me provides. This site enabled me to obtain and adopt a beautiful, sweet and loving Dachshund. Her name is Bella. It was a heart wrenching decision for the original owner, and it was a long awaiting dream of mine to own a Dachshund again. I know there were many who also wanted to adopt Bella, and I am so grateful for the privilege of becoming Bella's new mommy. This would not ever have happened without this wonderful site.

     My main focus on finding a home for Mia and Willow was a loving, forever, safe home. My girls were young and I wanted them to stay together and know that the adopted family would be the right one for them. I had several phone calls from a wonderful couple that discovered Mia and Willow on Rescue Me. They kept calling and emailing me until I could return the call. I felt in my heart that this was to be a possible forever home. They offered to drive back to meet the girls and they wanted to see if Mia and Willow would accept THEM. I was torn between letting my babies go to a home that could give them the love and care I could not continue doing. When I met these wonderful people they listened to my concerns and they just gave me a sense that they were the ones. Since then, they have sent me a picture of Mia and Willow's new home with the girls. I hope they will continue to stay in touch. This site is a legit site. I found a home within a week and I owe this site so very much with making a tough decision. If you want a dog, consider a rescue dog, They all need a forever, loving home. -Sheila

     Some folks just have to have THAT dog, regardless of where it might be located. It reminds them of a lost pet. The picture just speaks to their heart. For whatever reason, Jimmy has moved across country. Our humane society volunteer transported Jimmy to meet with the brother of the sweet lady that just had to have THAT smiling pup. It was a three hour drive in the middle of the night. Literally the middle of the night--2:00 a.m. Jimmy quickly made friends with the trucker's Jack Russell Terrier and they were off. Jimmy was in bed with his new mom the next night and everyone is very happy. Doxie mixes have that special glow that makes them special. Jimmy was one of the lucky ones. His brother Joe is still waiting for that miracle to come his way. Thank you, Rescue Me.

     We had two Dachshunds and recently lost them to old age. Our little guy was 18 years old and died last May. Our sweet little girl was 17 years old and we had to put her to sleep last month. My husband and I were so devastated when we lost them. We loved our doggies so much and the silence of the house was making our sadness worse. We started looking at Dachshund rescue sites because we wanted to get an adult dog and there are so many good dogs needing homes. We'd been looking at a couple of websites trying to decide which dog would be best for us. One morning, I got on Rescue Me and saw Eddie and fell in love and knew he was the one for us. My husband agreed and we made arrangements with Eddie's foster Mom to go see him. It was love at first sight for all three of us! Eddie is so smart, housebroken, full of energy and so sweet! He's adjusting to us very well and we love him dearly. He is a ball fetcher of Olympic caliber! Eddie's foster Mom and I have stayed in touch so she knows how he's doing and their family is always welcome to come visit Eddie any time. Anyone who is thinking of getting a Dachshund, I urge you to consider adopting a rescue dog. They are all good dogs and deserve to have forever homes with people who will love them.

     I adopted Wilson on Saturday. When we got home, I sat him on the bed and he owned a place to sleep as fast as I put him on the bed. He is crate trained, but I don't think he will spend much time in his crate, (only enough to keep his training honed.) I felt so sad for the dad we adopted Wilson from, having to adopt his baby out. This is the second best Doxie I've ever had. This web site 'Rescue Me' is a real good place to adopt out and to find wonderful dogs of any breed, (I chose Dachshund because mine passed away and I need another friend to pet to help me sleep). I couldn't be happier with this wonderful boy, and this great site. Wilson is just what his dad said he was and I will keep him and give him a great spoiled him for ever. Thank you, Rescue Me, and to Wilson's dad. (Hey, does that make Wilson's dad, 'My baby's daddy'? LOL... Joking, of course, but he can see Wilson when ever he wants. Visitation is given liberally here. Thank you, thank you to Wilson's daddy.

     Our little Autumn was adopted about one week after we put up her posting. She was a little girl that was rescued from a hoarder situation. She was afraid of people and being around all humans. She would cower and run and not want to be a part of the 'human' pack. After six months of rehabilitation with her foster, she was loving with people and while still a little skittish, she would allow us to pet her. Because of Rescue Me she found a great and wonderful home where she is going to be spoiled beyond belief. Thank you Resuce Me for helping us to find her FUR ever home. -Precious Pets Rescue

I was advised to have three surgeries and advised against lifting more than eight pounds. We are in our 60s and my husband still works. We realized that Michael needed a new home, but despaired of finding one for a dog with disabilities. When I found Rescue Me on the web, I posted Michael's story, with all the details, and his photo. We received an email and then a text from a lady who lived about 30 miles away. She and her husband had already rescued three female mini Doxies, one of whom had developed back problems and lost the use of her back end. The lady took her for laser treatments and did physical therapy, including water therapy, on the disabled dog; the treatments were successful in restoring the Doxie's ability to walk. We took our dogs to meet their dogs and they all got along (after the first few minutes). After giving everyone a few weeks to think about it, we took Michael to his new home. His new mom has kept us posted with texts and photos. She says Michael has settled in with the girls, has received his first laser treatment and she is doing physical therapy with him. Finding a home that was so well suited to Michael's needs was just amazing. This happy result would not have been possible without Rescue Me! Thank you for providing this forum!

     Thank you Rescue Me for helping Snickers to find a loving couple to adopt him. Snickers was thrilled about his new family because he was giving them lots and lots of kisses when they met.

     A wonderful couple interested in starting their family with a puppy adopted my Daschund, Hoppy Toad. We met at a park, and after spending time with the couple and Hoppy Toad, it was evident that Rescue Me helped find a good fit for my little girl. Thank you for providing a place where I had the opportunity to find a good home for her.

     The Dachshund I posted on Rescue Me had serious issues and I was worried we would have trouble finding him some help. I had many replies and found a rescue that not only agreed to take him but was really excited. He already has several people who are interested in adopting him. This is the first time I have used this site - I am very grateful for it!

     I had to put my Jack up for adoption due to where I am currently living, and my hand was forced in the situation. It was a very hard and sad decision for me. However, knowing that Jack went to a great home, with a family who loves dachshunds, was extremely reassuring to me and helped me cope through this hard time. I strongly believe, without Rescue Me, I never would have a found a family who was the right choice.

     I posted Sandy on Rescue Me and had several responses the next week. After lots of conversation through email and a phone call, this wonderful lady and one of her sons came to visit, and after visiting for a while they took Sandy home with them. Sandy was so excited to meet them that she jumped on the couch with them and started to lick the son's face. I feel very confident that the right decision was made to allow them to take her home. I am sure she will be very happy with them. Thank you to Jeff Gold and this website for allowing this to happen.

     I want to thank Kelly and Joel for their fast response to my post on Rescue Me and their compassion in one of the most tragic events of my life. Giving up one of my babies in a nightmare. And to the family that takes her in. God bless you and enjoy Zuckers unique personality, she is a special girl. I was a rescuer for many years, never thinking I would be in need of one. The true blessing and thanks are in the eyes of the babies you help, and God sees every one of you. Thank you all again. God bless.

     I am so thankful for Rescue Me! I had Quincy and Sophie on the site and decided to renew their post. Less than a week after posting them again did I receive an email that led to their forever home! The couple had just celebrated their one year anniversary and had lost both their dogs to old age shortly afterwards. They are retired and semi-retired and had had no children of their own and wanted to round out their home with two new 'babies'. They are the ideal fittest. I waited almost four years to find the most appropriate owners for my deceased mother's dogs, and because of this free site, it was worth every minute of the wait. What a terrific resource. I will continue to use it if and when need-be and promote it to anyone I know looking to place or adopt an animal. Thank you again for helping to facilitate this experience. Sincerely, Melissa

     I am so excited to announce that Sebastian was adopted by what I believe is the perfect family for him and they only live ten minutes from here. A family of Dad, Mom, two young daughters, and two other small doggies were looking for a rescue Dachshund for one of their young daughters whose own Doxie recently died. It was moving to see how Sebastian chose her as if he knew somehow that she needed him. The Mom works from home so he is not alone much and he now has two new doggie friends to play with. The whole family came to see him and all agreed he was perfect. They all loved him and took him right away. I posted him and adopted him the same day, which is amazing. I think it was just meant to be. Thank you Rescue Me!!!!!

Thank you, Rescue Me.

     Rose found a wonderful companion within 24 hours of posting on Rescue Me- And she had two backups in waiting! Rose is the dog that keeps on giving. You see, it's not Rose that got rescued. We found Rose six years ago for my mother-in-law through dachshund rescue. She was a wonderful pet and companion for my mother-in-law for all those six years. Now that my mother-in-law is unable to care for her, Rose has moved on to 'rescue' another spry elderly woman in need of a pet companion. Thanks to organizations like Rescue Me, Rose has been able to perform her role as serial companion. All's well that ends well. She has made us all happy. Thank you for offering this great vehicle service to find homes for pets.

     We registered with Rescue Me looking for a Dachshund several weeks ago. At first we weren't really ready to adopt after our last Doxie went to the Rainbow Bridge, but finally we felt that we were ready to love another little Doxie. Last Sunday morning I checked my email and saw that a new Rescue Me Doxie was listed and found out that he was in a nearby suburb. I first emailed the lady who had listed him and then decided to call her. What a wonderful day it turned out to be! We have adopted Valentine and he has been with us for almost a week. Such a loving and happy boy, he loves to play and is totally house trained. We couldn't have gotten any luckier. At first I didn't think I would find such a perfect dog here on Rescue Me, but we certainly did and we are so happy with our new little spoiled guy!

     Dear Rescue Me, My Tiny has been adopted today. Thank you, very much for offering this free service. I will be making a donation to show my appreciation. He is in a good home, beautiful new mommy, clean other dogs and a dog park. Thanks, again, and she said I can call to check on him sometimes he lives about ten minutes from my home. The easiest and fastest adoption I have ever known. I am so happy he is in a good home, even though I miss and love him so, much, he is a good boy, anyone who be blessed to have him. He's smart too, and a great alarm and watch dog. Lol.

I talked to so many people until I found the perfect fit! Linda and her husband were the perfect match.

     My sweet little boy Ozzy was adopted by a wonderful family. It tore me up and I cried when I had to give him up, but when David sent me pictures of him after the adoption I got to see how happy he was. It relieved my mind and made my heart feel happy to see how much Ozzy was enjoying his new surroundings and family. There's nothing harder than having to give up a beloved pet that was part of your family, but this site made that situation for us a lot easier to do. Thank you 'RESCUE ME' for helping me find my baby boy Ozzy a new and loving home! And Thank You David for loving him so much!

     Friskie is a 13 and a half year young Dachshund who slept for eight years, so she is probably only five years old!!! We tried a local online service, who was very helpful, but we did not find a good match for us and then we tried Rescue Me. Our first call was from a lady some three and a half hour drive from us, but it was important enough for us to meet her and make sure that this would be a good home and a good person to take care of Friskie. The lady had an older male rescue dog from Hurricane Katrina that she had taken care of for a number of years. And the dog 'Henry' still looked great, although he was developing some problems. Friskie had never been around other dogs or many people, but she ended up with this lady on her couch being petted and looking content in about 15 minutes. Good beginning instead of ending for a great little dog.

     At this time am feeling wonder. I had been searching for a new playmate for my dachshund and I feel God has blessed me with the perfect Rosie to fit in better with my family and give Buddy a super playmate. I really like how fast Rescue Me responded to my application and allowed me to receive the dog that I was looking. So, thank you!

     I used Rescue Me to find my Bella a loving home that could give her the attention and love that my home couldn't pair up to. It was extremely sad for us to have to give her up, but the situation was not fair to her or our other dog. I had many good inquires about Bella once I posted her. I met up with a couple one day, with Bella, and instantly knew it was going to be okay. The people who adopted her are a wonderful couple who knew how heartbroken my son and I were to have to let her go. They have kept in touch with me and have sent me pictures of her. I honestly could not have asked for anything better for her. It was, and continues to be, a wonderful, even though bittersweet, experience.
