     Uma was adopted by a young man, Oleg, who has over four acres of land, and she is the only dog. Oleg is working with her and takes her on hikes along the Appalachian Trail. This is a great success story, and all the pictures of Uma I'm getting have a big smile on her face.

     Thanks to Rescue Me!, we found our girl Cassie. She is adjusting well to her new home and family. We all love her so much. She has become very attached to our children in such a short time, only one month with us. Very lucky to have found her. Thanks again to Rescue Me!

     Storms medical needs were close to not being met. Divorce is really hard on families and pets. I tried my hardest to maintain my loving girl's health needs, but vets and medication costs can add up quickly. Through the support of Rescue Me! and my local Newfoundland rescue group, I was able to find a loving adopter who will be able to take care of Storm's needs. I had several inquiries through Rescue Me!, and it wasn't easy choosing who'd be the best fit. But after talking with the applicants' vets, I was able to make a good and informed choice for Storm's best interests. Thank you.

     Thanks to Rescue Me!, Coal found a great home. I posted him on the site only two days ago and the calls and emails flooded in. I have spoken to so many wonderful families looking to give Coal a home. We decided to choose a family in the Cleveland area in case there would be any issues, however, I could tell they are a perfect match. Thank you to all who have responded and I hope you find your new family member. If you need to place your pet in a new home, definitely use this site! I heard from families across the states, from California to Maine. So many families are willing to open their homes to save these animals from shelters or worse. So before you give up on your pet, try Rescue Me! first, it's amazing!

     We received an email from Rescue Me! that there was a Newfoundland that needed a home. I contacted the number that was given to me in the email. We talked a couple of times, and then set up a time and place to meet. We drove 4 hours to met Sasha, and immediately fell in love with her along with my other dogs when we got her home. I could not imagine my life without her, she is a gentle giant and everybody that meets her loves her. She goes swimming everyday and walks twice a day. She could not hold her head higher, she is so proud. Thank you so much Rescue Me! for allowing success stories like these to take place.

     I posted Libby on Rescue Me!, and the first day I received two phone calls and six emails about her. She found a home with a very experienced Newfie owner. I could not believe how simple and efficient it was. I'm glad that she's found someone to take good care of her.

     I'm so happy to say that, thanks to Rescue Me!, Gunner was placed in a loving home. A perfect match sad as it was to leave our gentle giant, the folks who have him just lost there Newfie to old age, and Gunner is a great replacement for them. As I was leaving, Gunner ran up to me, I hugged him and said you have a new home buddy, you go with them and he winked at me and ran to them... I knew then that it was a good match. Thank you Rescue Me! Scott

     I cannot believe the responses or how timely they were. I am truly grateful for how many great families replied. Hagred has given us many years of great friendship and helped my son through truly tough times. He is now going to bless another family the way he blessed us, although our hearts break to see him go, we know through interviews, visits and his response we have made the correct choice. Thank you, Rescue Me! This tough time would have devastated us if he ended up in a pound, our boy deserves the best and thanks to you... He gets it!!!

     Larry was very popular on Rescue Me! We received emails and phone calls from several homes. We selected a home where their old Newfoundland had recently crossed the Rainbow Bridge. Larry will be the only dog and will have a three acres to play in. Thanks to Rescue Me!, Larry has a fabulous FOREVER home.

     Thank you so much for this site! Lincoln, my Newfie has been successfully adopted by a new family. After many emails from interested families, Lincoln was placed with Ken and Carol. His new home wil be one where he is loved and has the room he needs to play. And, he will now have other newfies too play with, which lifts the heartache I was having placing him with a new family. Thank you, thank you, thank you to Rescue Me! for all you do!!

     I want to thank Rescue Me for making this site available! I have successfully adopted 'at risk' dogs because of this site to wonderful places and homes! The most recent is Buddy! I drove to Eugene, OR and met a wonderful teacher from Portland- and knew it was a match! I had a lot of interest! What is nice about this site is that we volunteer at various shelters and are moved with passion- and desperation to save these animals from the 'alternative' and sometimes perhaps to hasty, not wanting the animal to be euthanized,- we jump at the first who is interested! But having this site affords us an audience that allows us to be discriminating! Thank You! Raleigh, Volunteer for all dogs in need- and formally with the Josephine County Or animal shelter!

     I had a few people call me within the week, I had picked who I thought was best and would be able to afford his medical issues. I am very happy that he will be taken care of, of course very upset to see him go but I know he is going to be taken care of very well. Thank you RescueMe.

     I would like to thank Rescue Me for helping Tahj find a new home. I met some wonderful people who were caring and compassionate. This was the best and easiest site to use. I would recommend it to anyone having to face the devastating fact of giving up a pet that you love. I spoke with people in Washington state, Rhode Island, Texas, California, and Ohio. This site really opened my options and let me choose the perfect home for Tahj. I can't thank you enough for setting up Rescue Me and taking some of the burden of placing Tahj for adoption. You're doing a great thing! Tahj went to a family in Ohio who recently lost their Newf of 9yrs. They were so excited to find her and I felt very comfortable with Bill, Linda and Kerry taking her. I know they'll love her and treat her well.

     Thanks for your help in finding Bubba a new home. I was able to talk to several families wanting to bring Bubba into their lives. He will now be spending his days with his new sister Zoey, another Newfoundland, and his wonderful new family. Your website allowed me to find a home that is so perfect for my buddy Bubba. You helped me find comfort in a very difficult decision! Thank you! Kathie

     I was at my wits end and low and behold I get an email from Rescue me! I adopted Rocco last year and He is a wonderful dog! He had a fenced yard and the run of the house. Then.....we made a move to Illinois and no more yard and no more free time to spend with our good boy. He had been tearing up the house and I could not keep him contained in anything but a locked bathroom. That is no life for my good boy! I was devastated when I came home one day and he had jumped on the stove to get a package of soy sauce off of the microwave and turned on the burner, burning a cloth grocery bag a set of grilling tongs and the spoon rest. Lucky to still have a house. I did not know what else to do so I called the local pound. He was set to be put down this morning and I get a text from a wonderful couple that has a stay at home mom and a 14 year old son. The response I got from my post was so fast it was overwhelming. I am so glad we did not have to have him put down! I thank rescue me for being so prompt and caring.

     I am so thrilled at the outpouring of interested people who love this beautiful breed of dog! Within 4 hours I got a call from a lady who was interested. In 3 days we had a total of 11 inquires. Each one was very sincere and very knowledgeable. Punkin Head did go to his new home last Sunday, for a vet appointment on Monday and now to a home filled with love. Our family enjoyed the experience of caring for him through the winter. We may never know where he came from... but thanks to RescueMe.Org we know he is safe now. Reva Sheffield

     Dear Jeff, Our Abbey has been adopted! As sad as we were to have to find a new home for Abbey, we are happy to announce that she is now living with a wonderful, dog loving couple in Oregon. Your site opened up many windows of opportunity for Abbey. Living in Oklahoma, there are very few Newfies and most people are just not familiar with the breed. Within hours of posting on your site, people from all over the United States were contacting me about adopting Abbey. One woman in particular called me and touched my heart with her many dog stories. Yesterday, I loaded Abbey in a very large crate and headed for the airport. She arrived safe and sound in Oregon several hours later and her new family just called to let me know how wonderful she is doing. Thank you for your site and best of luck!

     Dear Jeff, Tug has been adopted. We want to thank you for your website. It was a short time after posting Tug up for adoption that we had started to receive responses about adopting him. We are very pleased with the experience that we had with RescueMe.org. We posted Tug on Friday evening and had found him a new home by Sunday morning. We will definitely be getting another dog fairly soon and will be looking at RescueMe.org for our next new dog. Thank you, Judy and Dale Otey

     Jeff, Thank you for this. When we realized we had to give Olaf up, we were really worried about finding a family that would love and care for Olaf and realize the unique breed of Newfoundlands. No sooner had I posted Olaf's name on the site and I was receiving emails from individuals whose spirit I recognized, a spirit that loves dogs and realizes the pain of giving one up. Every email I exchanged (and I assure you it was close to 50 in less than a week) was compassionate and excited and thoroughly interested in not only adopting Olaf but joying in his eventual placement. Several people even offered to keep him for a bit until we re-settled after graduate school (the reason for his placement). Thank you for this service, I hope many more benefit from it as I have. regards, Dan

     Jeff, Ethel - and Arnold! - have been adopted! I was amazed that there were so many inquiries from so many very special people willing to provide a home for one or both of our Newfs. In fact, as I write this, I have a number of people to write back to, to let them know that both dogs are now spoken for. Many thanks to you, this site, and the wonderful folks that look out for this very special breed of furry love! Cindy

     Jeff, Lucy was adopted yesterday by a nice, caring couple from Ohio that lost a newfie last year. My experience with your site is beyond 5 stars, I listed Lucy on a Thursday around 1p.m. by 4p.m. I had received 11 emails and 2 phone calls of people who were interested. She was adopted on Friday and taken to her new home in Ohio around 3p.m. So in a little over 24 hours Lucy was placed with a family that was a perfect fit and lived a little over 3 hours away. I would have never found them, without the help of your site. I would recommend rescue me.org to anyone looking for or needing to place an animal. Again thank you for the great site, It saves lives of animals in a need of a good home Ronald J. Francis

     Hermosa was adopted! Using the Rescue Me site was a wonderful experience. We were fostering Hermosa for a friend who could no longer take care of her. Although we fell in love with her, we did not have adequate room for her to run and play the way a puppy needs to do. She seemed happy here, but we were looking for an even better place for her to stay. We fostered Hermosa for almost a year and tried to find another family to take her by word of mouth and by posting her on other websites. Each day, we were falling more in love with her and knew the longer we had her, the more attached we would become. So, I stumbled upon the Rescue Me website. Once I found it, I easily posted a description and picture and someone contacted us the next day. This was one of those 'God had a hand in this one' stories. A family in North Carolina had a 6 year old Newfoundland/Lab mix who got cancer in her leg. They were going to have to amputate to save the dog's life and they ended up losing her in the surgery. Obviously, the family was heart broken as they thought they would have her for years to come since she was so young. The oldest daughter, Ryan, began asking for another dog like the one they had lost. Her parents told her that if she saved up her allowance, and found a dog to rescue, then she could have it. So, Ryan worked hard and saved $50. Then, without her parents knowledge, she placed a letter in the mailbox of a woman who lives down the street who rescues dogs. The letter told the story and asked if she new of a Newfie or Newfie mix that she could have. Well, the woman only rescues small dogs and had nothing like what the girl was looking for. Moved by the letter, the woman told her grown daughter, Jennifer, the story. Jennifer then saw our dog's picture (Hermosa - a Newfie/Lab mix) and contacted us. The story gets even better....the family lives in NC and we live in Atlanta, GA. Jennifer just so happened to be coming to Atlanta the very next week for job training! She put us in touch with Ryan's family and we answered their questions and go to know them a little better. We decided they would be a good fit for Hermosa and they decided she would be a good fit for them. One week after posting Hermosa on Rescue Me, she had a new happy home. Hermosa now lives in another state and we are staying in contact with her new family. She has 3 acres of land to run around and play on and 2 other puppies to play with as well. The family called to tell us when Hermosa arrived that she is identical to the dog they lost last year - all black, cute as can be, identical personalities, and a Newfie/Lab mix. They couldn't be happier and we couldn't have found a better place for Hermosa. Rescue Me was definitely a God sent way for us to make our pet and 2 families very happy! Thank you for all that you do! Sincerely, Jillian Palmiotto
