     This little Doxie girl has been in our foster care since April 2017, she came in seven pounds underweight and had signs of being terrified and abused. Thanks to Rescue Me, she has found her furever family and will be going with a fun loving and kind-hearted family! Thank you!

     I wish I found Rescue Me sooner. I was looking for a dog for my mother-in law. I started off with another rescue, left three messages and no one returned my call, sent emails. Someone said they were waiting for a reference to return a call but they never left any of my references a message. When I found Rescue Me, I had messages returned the same day! Great place to adopt a dog! My mother-in law only set out to adopt one dog but adopted two!

     My two babies were adopted. I was overly picky where they were to go, but had to find them a home. Finally, I did. Thank you Rescue Me! I couldn't have done it without your site. I'm missing my two terribly but I feel good about the new home I finally found. Doxies are special little people and need lots of love. I found a special woman who knows the breed, which is wonderful for them. Thank you Rescue Me, and thanks to two special ladies. Love my Doxies for me.

     I lost my adorable Doxy, Tobias. I was devastated. I knew I would want another Doxy in the future, but only time would tell as to when that would be. Then, about a couple of months ago, I started going to the rescue sites and checking out Doxies. Very tentatively. I saw several that I found promising, but still could not bring myself to take the next step of making inquiries. Then, about three weeks ago, I saw a photo of a dachshund mix who I felt compelled to inquire about. A family was already in the process of adopting him. The next day I saw a posting about Lacey. She looked so proud, self-confident, and simply adorable on the stump! I also admired Ann Kelley for recognizing that she could no longer care for her beloved dog. That matched perfectly with my hope that I would adopt a dog from an elderly person. I called Ann, went over to her house, which is only about two miles from mine, and left with Lacey. That first night that she snuggled with me in bed was the first really good sleep I have had since Tobias passed. Since I only live two miles from Ann, I suggested going over to her house with Lacey once a week, and let them have some quality time for a couple of hours. Ann loves the idea. Now Lacey will have a mom and a grandma. Thanks, Rescue Me, for your efforts that make good things like this come to pass.

     This is truly a success story with Rescue Me! I know I found the perfect home for Rockie. The person who adopted him has a Dachshund by the name of Roxie. Rockie and Roxie, what a team. The new owner sent me pictures of Rockie to let me know he was doing fine. The pictures he sent me warmed my heart. Rockie, just after a few hours after adoption, was already sitting on the new owners lap!! Wow! This little boy usually has trouble warming up to anyone. I know for sure that this little guy will have a wonderful, safe and Loving home. Thanks Allen!

     Our sweet Cookie was adopted by a wonderful family. We are grateful she has found her fur-ever home! She was posted on Rescue Me for less than 24 hours before we were contacted with several inquiries and we were able to choose the home that best fit based on common sense, asking the right questions and visiting the potential new home to be sure it will meet the needs. Thank you Rescue Me for your help!

     Our sweet little seniors have gone together to a couldn't be better forever home. Their new mother, Jan, is a compassionate and a very knowledgeable dog lover. She's adopted two previous rescue dogs. Pirate Pete is in one of the photos as he and Brenna become acquainted. All of the dogs got along fine; Piper was preoccupied with 'squirrel patrol' during the photo shoot. Thank you to all who helped Brenna and Finley on their journey, by sharing their story and keeping them in your thoughts and prayers. We send special thanks to the good people at the Dog Stop South who gave Brenna and Finley good care and good times at doggy day care. Most especially we thank Jan for opening her heart and home to Brenna and Finley and making the rest of their lives the best of their lives. Thank you, Rescue Me!

     Today is Buddy's birthday. He is one year old. The first year of his life has been a bit rough. He has been in and out of four homes, which were supposed to be forever but because of circumstances in the lives of each adoptive parent, he was unable to stay in the homes. But, today, on his first birthday, he is resting in the arms of a new mommy and daddy who are shedding tears of joy! They lost their beloved Dachshund three years ago at the age of 15. Now they are ready to love again and little Buddy literally bounced into their door and took his place in their lives. As I left him in his mom's arms, I looked back at him and his forever family and saw through my tears, all of us had years and Buddy has a big smile on his face. Thank you, Rescue Me!

     One week ago we rescued Trixie from Kelly and she is just the most precious little girl! She is only about 10 weeks old now and sleeps a lot but when she is up she is a bundle of energy! Working with Rescue Me and Kelly was so great and she was and still is so much help. It's been about 18 years since we had a puppy and it is tiresome trying to potty train her but she is sooo worth it. I know she will bring us years of joy! Thanks for all your help!

     We lost our last baby JoJo, who was a Chiweenie last August. We have always had a Dachshund or Dachshund mix and decided to start checking on websites. Barney really touched us when we read the circumstances of his being available for adoption. We talked with Roxanne there at Rose Acres Rescue, she was very helpful in telling us all about Barney. We set up a time to visit and were very pleased that all his shots had been done and he was ready to come home with us. Thanks so much to Rescue Me and Rose Acres for helping us make an easy transition for Barney.

     We adopted Chester from Joanne after we lost our beloved Chocolate Lab, Ranger, after having him for 15 years. This little guy is one of the nicest dogs we've ever had and we have owned lots of dogs over the last 50 years. He has filled a big empty spot in our lives. He is 10 months old and has found his forever home right here with us. We have always taken excellent care of our dogs and spared no expense when it comes to their health and well being, and it will be exactly the same with Chester. The hardest part was leaving Joanne's home with him because we knew how hard it was for her to give him up. She had reached the point in life where she felt she could no longer give him the care she thought he needed, and had the strength and courage to transfer him to someone who could. Her dog's wellbeing was very important to her. She has an open invitation to come visit him any time. We would not have found Joanne or Chester without Rescue Me and very much appreciate your website. Larry and Mary LeFever

     Thank you, Jeff, for Rescue Me. The new owners of my dog Greta are very pleased with the adoption. I had about 10 requests, so I had a choice who to pick. I could have not asked for a better couple to care for Chester. He is very happy in his new home which gives me much emotional satisfaction and pleasure. Thanks again, Joanne

     Thank you Jeff for this web site. I had 10 requests for my dog Chester, my 10 month old dachshund red mini. I had a choice who to pick for the adoption. Parting with my dog was difficult, but the new owner was very patient with me before I decided to part with Chester. I know Chester is very happy in his new home, which gives me much satisfaction and peace of mind. Due to my age and health, I could no longer give Chester the life he deserved. It was the right decision for both of us. Thank you so much, Rescue Me. -Joanne

     The day that I found Coco and Monakee on Rescue Me was a great day!!! We have a love affair with Doxies and were not deterred from taking on two at a time. They are eight and ten years old but you would not know it. It has been a month now and they are adjusting well as are we. i did not realize how much we missed having the little hot dogs in our lives. I micro chipped both dogs yesterday because Monakee has gotten out of our yard a couple of times now. She is not good about coming to your command. I hope to take them on a long trip soon as they both love going for a ride. I could not be happier that we were able to give them a loving home and look forward to many years together. Thank you, Rescue Me!

     I had the most amazing experience with Rescue Me! Happy Tails Rescue contacted me and offered me help in placing my dogs. This was the hardest experience I've had to deal with in a very long time. I wasn't able to stay and care for my home anymore. My son wanted me to move to Seattle and I could only have one pet. I also was going to spend the winters in another state and could only have one pet where I'd be staying. So, to have to decide which one to keep was more than I could face. So when Terri, from Happy Tails Rescue contacted me, it was like a prayer had been offered. She agreed to take Ace and Mia into her home and access them to see if they should stay together or could be split. She took them to appointments and got them ready for their forever homes. She even let them sleep with her and her six dogs. What a woman! A wonderful woman was looking at pictures of the dogs posted on this site and she saw Mia and Ace and just knew that they would be a perfect fit for her 85 year old Aunt. All three of them met and Terri interviewed them and she agreed that it would be the perfect home for my babies. We've all kept in contact and I know that in the end, I did the right thing. I know there are some of you out there that are saying 'I'd never give up my dogs for any reason' and I was probably one of you that yelled the loudest. But sometimes things happen in our lifetime that we do not get a say so. So I'm asking those of you not to judge too harshly because until you are personally in that spot, you just don't know. So please be supportive of these people. I cried for days. I couldn't talk about it to anyone. It was too raw. I felt like someone had taken part of me and it was gone, and to have to face the fact that you couldn't change it. Maybe knowing that you could make one phone call and get them back... But then you'd have to go through it again. I hate the fact that my body didn't last as long as me, and that family feels that I am no longer safe living alone and that someone has to monitor me. I'm sorry to have gone on and on, but my dogs deserve the best and this site provided that. Thank you for all of you that support and look to this site to put love back in your life.

     Friday the 13th was a lucky day for my wife and me. We saw Marlow on Rescue Me. We lost our little boy Dachshund to heart failure and we were heart broken. As soon as we saw Marlow, we knew we wanted her to be our little girl. We contacted Marlow's foster Mom and things went so well that two days later we were on our way to pick Marlow up! It's only been one week and she is already a part of the family. We want to say thank you to Marlows foster mom and to Rescue Me for helping us find our precious little girl. -Randy and Karin

     Oreo was living in a wire crate in the back yard. One of our volunteers talked the family into surrendering him to PAWS. We found out later that they pressure-washed him before handing him over to us! Poor Oreo was in need of some LOVE and medical attention, but he didn't let this get him down. He is very loving and is a lap dog now. Thanks to Rescue Me, Oreo was adopted to a great home and gets plenty of attention, car rides and LOVE. His new family now wants to adopt another dog from us. PS: We are still trying to get Oreo's former family to give up another dog that needs us.

The family was moving north and would travel close to where I live. I contacted the previous owner and she agreed to meet me. I fell in love with these two dogs. They are adjusting very well and have made their self at home. My grandchildren live next door and the dogs just love them. I rescued a stray dog before from the streets.

     I found out about Rescue Me when inquiring about how to find a good home for three dogs. Success for our little girl Reddy (Dachshund)!!! She found a wonderful, loving couple. I asked that they donate to this website. We didn't want to sell her, just to find the right home and we did. I'm hoping for two more success stories with our other two, a dachshund mix and a German Shepard mix.

     The term 'rescue' in this case is definitely an appropriate action for our little Spinelli. He was in a private home where I drove two hours for him. When I arrived, it was evident that he lived in a small carry crate outside. He had a terrible skin rash and a large area on his back and tail that was missing hair. He itched constantly. He also had fleas. We treated him immediately. We also loved him immediately. He literally has a huge smile now. I do not think he was ever walked and he loves to go. I am so thankful for Rescue Me, which led me to this new member of our family.

     Sparky came to us as his owner couldn't keep him. We kept him knowing it would be temporary until we could find a loving full time home for him. Putting off the inevitable for a while, our children becoming close to Sparky and it wasn't making the decision easier. We are a very large and busy family. It is not fair to Sparky or an animal to not be able to devote the time they deserve. A friend told me about Rescue Me, and within 24 hours of posting Sparky's photo and story, he found his forever home. Our hearts hurt as we had grown close to him in this short amount of time, yet we are thankful for this site. We set up the adoption fee to go towards Rescue Me. We hope that others would consider the same.

     Rescue Me is a wonderful site. My son and daughter-in-law brought this pretty little dachshund home about three weeks ago. They were moving out and couldn't take her. I became her foster parent, but am not ready to have a dog right now. She became potty trained very easily and had a wonderful disposition from the start. The six people that adopted Olivia 'Sweet P' had to drive three hours to get here, but they were very determined to get her. Sweet P did not want to leave me, but I am sure she'll bond very quickly to her new family. They did give me money, and I have already donated it to your wonderful service. Thanks so much! -Mary On behalf of Sweet P

     We had been searching for a home for GiGi for months! She had been abandoned at our boarding facility two years ago and had already been returned once before due to a change in circumstance for the adopter. She was a sweet girl that was so well behaved, it was completely frustrating that she was not being adopted! We had her on Petfinder and tried to post her as much as possible, but it was looking doubtful for poor GIGI. Then after only a week on Rescue Me, she got three people who wanted her, all within three days time! It was so amazing to see that sweetheart get so excited to be leaving the kennel! It was my mission to get her adopted, and after so much heart ache to see her have three potential homes. It was so relieving!

     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!

     Rescue Me provided a great way to find a new owner for Snoop Dog. I had seven qualified parties interested in the first few days. Snoop Dog was taken to his new home on Saturday. 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!

     I want to thank all the people for calling about Izzy and you for your wonderful free site. Within three hours, I had two inquiries and have had much more about Izzy since then. 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 had numerous calls within the first hour that I posted on this site. A couple stood out that had recently lost their dachshund due to old age. They had been very attached to their dachshund that had passed away and had been looking for a young dachshund or a couple of dachshunds to love. I am grateful to this site for enabling me to find a loving couple and a good home. Thank You, Rescue Me!

     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.

     We are combining households and couldn't keep all three dogs and three cats. I literally have been losing sleep over what we were going to do, so I am so grateful to Rescue Me for finding a wonderful home for Oscar. This website is truly a Godsend for people who love animals and want to see their pets go to good, safe, loving homes. I will definitely share this excellent resource with others! Thank you, Rescue Me!!

     I adopted Stretch and his brother Shorty. I already had one dachshund baby and now I have three. We are all so in love. They bring me much laughter and joy. They both (well, all three) love to cuddle close at night in my bed. They are enjoying the large fenced in yard which we have given them. We thank you for the opportunity to grow our family with rescue dogs. Thank you, Rescue Me.

     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!

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!

     Thank you Rescue Me. My sweet Hope was not adopted, but there was a much better and unexpected outcome. 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. Thank you so much for have this site! -Randy

     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. I cannot thank you guys and Carolyn enough for making it possible for Bella and me to be together. We are doing fabulous and are nearly inseparable. I will spread the word. Thank you!

     Thank you, Rescue Me, so much for what you all do! Circumstances in my life changed, and I needed to re-home Sophie. Within one day, I found a new family, and I was so surprised to know that they were in the same situation we were. They had two Doxies as I did, and one passed away. My Sophie lost her Sammy and was very lost without him. Now Sophie has a new friend to live with, and a new mommy to love her! I am so grateful for this site, I can't say it enough. I will support this site, and recommend it to everyone I can. Thank you again. Sincerely, Roberta
