     I want to tell everyone how easy it was to find Shadow a home. I tried other methods with little or no success, but with Rescue Me, I found her an excellent home right away. I want to thank them for making it less stressful with a difficult situation. It was not easy to give up our girl, but with our allergies getting worse every year we had no choice. People who come to Rescue Me are sincere people who are really interested in giving a new forever home to your beloved pet, so because of this you can rest a lot easier knowing they are going to be going to a loving home. Thanks again Rescue Me.

     Thanks to Rescue Me, we were able to find a loving home for our beloved cat in under a week. This was a difficult decision for us to make, so the fact that the process was so fast made it a little easier on us. Thanks so much!

     I listed my Gracie May on a Monday and was receiving several inquiries on Tuesday. On Thursday, a local couple came by to meet Gracie, they loved her and are taking her home. I was surprised what speedy response my post got. Thank you Jeff Gold for having this valuable adoption site available for people like myself to use. I do plan on donating to the cause. -Nancy

     Breggy was adopted within a week of my posting and I am so excited that my eight year old, purebred Ragdoll has gone to a loving home. Unfortunately, my newborn was severely allergic to him and although he had slept on my pillow every night for the past eight years, I had no choice but to re-home him. I am so very grateful for Rescue Me. There were over 15 families that were offering him a home within 24 hours of the posting and I will definitely be recommending this website to anyone looking for a rescue pet! Thank You Rescue Me and thank you to ALL of the interested families! ~ Pat

     I was looking to adopt a cat and knew we wanted to rescue or adopt a Ragdoll as well as a senior pet. Well, as luck would have it, we adopted two! We adopted Casey at age seven via Rescue Me and came back and found Biggie just two short months later. We picked Penny up on her thirteenth birthday! We have had them for seven and five months now and it is like they have always been with our family. I am forever grateful that I was able to connect with their previous owners via Rescue Me, and that they chose us to be their forever home. Thank you!

     After a sudden loss of our kitten of 12 years, I was utterly devastated. I found Rescue Me and was thrilled to find this gorgeous boy. I have always wanted a Ragdoll and he is an amazing cat! I loved the fact that the family knew about all of his personality, I think it made the transition easier. We have been so blessed to have this precious furry bundle added to our family. I have definitely told friends and family about the great experience we had! Thank you to all that were involved!

     I posted Bear on Rescue Me even though he was the most beautiful rag-doll I had ever seen. I wanted a rag-doll kitten/cat since my last one passed. He was a love and a 'cuddle cat'. This was what I thought Bear was when I got him. However, he was not, which is why I posted him after keeping him long enough to determine that he never would be. I had four responses, only two of which did I feel would be a good place for him. It was very important to me that anyone who wanted Bear understood exactly what his personality was. I carefully explained his temperament which was a high degree of independence. One of the two people who I felt would provide Bear a good home, drove two hours to see him. After spending time with the woman and seeing how Bear interacted with her, I knew this was the correct place for him. I am so grateful that there is an organization like Rescue Me that provides a venue for cats and other animals to be re-adopted. If I hear of anyone who is looking for a pet - cat, dog, bunny rabbit, what have you, I always recommend this organization.

     We used the Rescue Me site to find a home for a Maltese puppy about a year ago. We had such a great experience that when we realized we needed to find a home for our daughter's cat, we knew exactly where to go! The family who adopted TJ, the Ragdoll, has been great about keeping us posted on how he is doing. They have gone above and beyond the call of kindness to share their email and phone numbers with us so we can periodically check in on how TJ is adjusting. We don't plan to be pests, but it is comforting to know that TJ is in a loving, compassionate home. Thank you, Rescue Me!

     When the time was right for our family, I began looking to adopt a Ragdoll. I have experience with the breed; we have a rescued a Ragdoll at our vet hospital and we are fortunate to have many as patients, so I knew they were right for our family. However, rescuing versus purchasing was the only option for us. I went on Rescue Me, put in what I was looking for, and was promptly notified when a match became available. Because of this, we were able to find and adopt, Whiskey, and he is a wonderful addition to our family. We simply couldn't be happier, and it wouldn't have happened if it weren't for Rescue Me. Many thanks, Donna

     We adopted Annie a week ago and she has already adjusted into our family beautifully. So happy to have found her on Rescue Me. She is such a joy! This is the second successful adoption from Rescue Me. We adopted Cici, a beautiful, three year old Siberian, who is as sweet and loving as Annie is! They are already running around the house playing with each other. Thank you so much for helping us find each other.

     I had barely filled in the Rescue Me form when Boo's new mom responded to our post. He is going to a wonderful home and will have a buddy which I think will be really good for him. We are sad at having to re-home him, but when family members cannot visit for any length of time because of allergies, it just had to happen. In the process, we have gained some new friends and we will be visiting Boo from time to time. They will be sending us photos to keep us updated as to our precious boy. We are very happy with your website and will be sharing it with our local vet for their information.

     We got a call on Lily from her post on Rescue Me and the new owner wanted to see her and brought a crate. She was going to try to take Mollie, a black cat, as a two part deal, but Mollie just is not able to fit into more than a single cat household. So, she looked at Doc, and I think they fell in love with each other. Doc requires special attention. She wanted Doc also, despite his problems and need for TLC. There seemed to be some confusion with some people that these cats still had physical problems, Lily with her ears, and Doc with his eyes, but these beauties have had no problems with their respective ailments since we got them, and are in fine shape. At any rate, Lily crawled into the carrier as soon as we opened the crate, and settled down for a few minutes. The new owner played with her for a while, and after a little while everyone was loaded up in the car with a scratcher, circulating water bowl, two large jars of their dry food, several cans of canned food, several beds, one elevated, they went on their way. Since she had only one crate, I gave her one of mine to use, feeling if one or the other didn't work out, I would get the crate back. And if they did work out and found a new forever home, she would need the extra crate anyway, so it was a win/win for me and her. I hear Lily has gone into hiding and Doc is fussy, but she is confident they will work out. If not, it isn't that far a drive to get one or both and bring them home. The agreement was to return either or both to us if they don't work out. Happy they got to go together, as they were adopted from the same breeder who couldn't sell them as kittens since they were a year old, albeit a year apart, but they were familiar with each other and got along pretty well, no fighting, etc. And they played chase the gate well together.

     I am so thankful to have learned about this website Rescue Me. I was posting far and wide all over my Facebook, and having friends share with their friends, etc. Wasn't having much luck until I posted my kitties here. Almost immediately, I started receiving responses from people interested in my 'girls' and wanting to know more about them. Then I received a message from Jim, who had a story similar to mine. He also had two sister kitties that he had adopted, and they were all together for eight years before his girls passed away. Both, within two months of each other. His girls were actually five or six years old when he got them, so add another eight years to that and they lived to about 14 years old. Can't imagine what a heartbreak he must have endured with their passing. Well, when he saw my post with my 'girls' story of needing a new home, he wrote me right away. His girls even had similar personality traits to those of my kitties. We messaged back and forth for a little bit, and he and his girlfriend, Kristine, were so gracious to make themselves available for whatever was convenient for me. Yesterday, I packed up the girls in their carriers, and we took a road trip. So much about Jim and Kristine was so 'right' feeling from the very beginning. I could tell that they had developed an attachment to my Baby and Bitsy, and were wanting to give them a loving and forever home. I feel so blessed to have crossed paths with them, and probably never would have any other way other than through the use and benefits of this wonderful website. What started out as a sad, heavy heart for me ended up as a grateful, glad, piece of mind secure feeling that my girls were in such a perfect place. Yes, I miss them a lot already, but have already received the first update from Kristine and was told that I would be welcome to visit in the future if I should ever find myself down around their neck of the woods! And thank you Jeff Gold, for creating such a wonderful service such as Rescue Me, and making it available to all of to be able to save lives. Seriously, it doesn't get much better than this!

     I was desperate to find a forever home for my beautiful Nana Kitty. I didn't want to put her through the stress of moving across country and I couldn't find any rescues or no-kill shelters that had any openings. Scouring the internet I came across Rescue Me, posted her picture, and prayed. The next day I received an email from a lady who was very interested. We talked on the phone and she drove an hour and a half to come see my kitty. I knew it would be alright when Nana was eager to smell this woman. She usually runs and hides. Thank you Rescue Me! You were instrumental in helping Nana have a great rest of her life!

     I had a very positive and successful experience with Rescue Me! I posted a six year old Ragdoll cat named Moon for his owner who developed serious health problems and had to give him up. I told her I would find a new home for him. As soon as I posted, I was contacted by a couple of Ragdoll cat rescue groups in my state who must monitor the listings. They offered support and help. I had seven real inquiries and was able to select a well-qualified person to adopt Moon. Even transport was easy. The cat and his new home were more than 500 miles apart, but the new owner worked for an airline and used those benefits to fly and pick him up. How lucky was that! I found the Rescue Me website fairly easy to work on. When I did have a problem editing my posting, the help line was quick to answer my call and fix the situation. I recommend it to anyone seeking to place a cat in a new home rather than take it to a shelter. Just be patient and wait for the right person to come along.

     My husband and I decided to adopt a kitten after losing our beloved 18 year old Heidi. We wanted to adopt a rescue kitten and wanted a Ragdoll if possible. After searching several sites I found Rescue Me! I continued going back to the site looking for our kitten, not expecting to find a Ragdoll but one day I saw a posting of four beautiful babies. The foster mother picked out the one she felt fit our requirements. We have had Buddy for a week now. He is a joy, and wonderful addition to our family. I am so thankful I kept looking and didn't just settle. Thank you, Rescue Me!

I was able to find homes for the kittens, and needed a forever home for this lovely cat I called Boomer. I am moving for work to another town and could not take her with me. I posted her story and photo on Rescue Me's Ragdoll Rescue, and she found her forever home in about 16 hours. Wonderful site to use for adoption and posting those that need a home. Thank you for the wonderful work that you do.

     When my allergist told me I needed to find a new home for my two year old Ragdoll Jasmine, I ignored him. Two years and four bouts of bronchitis later, I admitted he might be right. I tried friends and family but no one could take her. Rescue Me! put me in touch with some great people who were interested in adoption. After communicating with a few people and matching Jasmine's personality to a new parent, I was able to find her a new home. I feel confident that she will be loved and I couldn't have made the connection without Rescue Me!, and I am so thankful that I found this organization to help me feel better about the hard choice to give her up.

     I am so thankful for Rescue Me!! I was very nervous about rehoming my lovely cat and found it hard to find a good home through various other websites and postings at local vet hospitals. After one day of posting on Rescue Me!, I received multiple inquiries. It was a luxury to email with many people who would have all made great new parents for my cat, especially after bad experiences for over six months with other efforts. I found a fantastic new family for my cat thanks to Rescue Me!, and it took only a few days. I'd highly recommend this site to anyone looking for a new furry friend, or anyone looking to rehome a pet.

     Thank you Rescue Me. I adopted Cass and Abbigail. These two babies came at a much needed time. I had a void in my heart that only a Ragdoll would fill. These babies lost their mom a few days before I got them, Abby was right at home after half a day. Cass took a few days, now he's happy and not hiding. They both are so very loving, my heart's content, and I am glad you alerted me they needed me, too. Cass has really taken to our five year old Weimaraner, he loves that dog. Two Ragdolls now have a good, happy, permanent home. Thank you. I pray all your babies find a good home.

He was happy with us but we knew he would be really happy away from his little doggie friends here in our home. This site was so helpful, and his new mommy sends us videos and texts us daily about his new home. We get to visit him in a few weeks. Excited for Winston, and thankful that we had this site to help us find him a home.

     Molly was popular, and the screening went quite well. I've been receiving photos and updates of her transition to her new home. They have a male cat which has taken to Molly pretty well. She has many toys and styles of beds which she is sharing. I was able to meet the adoptees, so my sadness was replaced by the confidence that Molly will be loved, and have a playful friend. Thank you! I have been bragging about this wonderful Rescue Me! website.

     I found a home for her! A very nice lady who just lost her 17-year old cat was looking for a new companion, specifically a kitty with a mellow laid back personality. I think they're doing really well together so far, I just sent her an email asking for an update. Betsy

     Thank you Rescue Me! When I had to make the decision to rehome Rocky and Lucy, I was heartbroken. I was so worried for their well-being and thought for sure no one could take care of them and love them the way I did. I was overwhelmed by the response I received for them on the site! So many people contacted me seemingly legitimately concerned for the cats' welfare that it gave me hope that even though they are both 'senior' cats, they could still find a loving home. It ended up that the first person who reached out to me was who I felt the cats would be most happy with, and I was right! She sends me pictures of them frequently and updates me on how they are adjusting. She even went as far as to invite me to visit the cats whenever I liked! Before coming across this website, I thought I was going to have to take my kitties to the SPCA and pray that a family would be willing to adopt TWO 20+ senior cats, which seemed seriously unlikely. Thanks to the kindness of a stranger and the good work that this website does, my dear kitties will have a safe, loving forever home. Lizzie

     I was fostering a beautiful ragdoll, declawed cat. She was having 'problems' fitting in with new people. She is an inside cat and very shy and reserved, not a typical 'lap cat', but very sweet. The Rescue Me! website was responsible for helping me rehome her within a week. I couldn't believe how fast I got responses to my post! THANK YOU! Anne Faith

     Thank you so much for supplying a forum that would allow a wonderful person to pair up with an exceptional cat. When Tonya saw Desi, she fell in love with him. He's adjusting, of course, but it looks very promising. I'm just so happy that he has found a new home. :)

     Thank you Jeff Gold and Rescue Me! I was dubious about posting Jingles on the Internet initially, but with all other options exhausted, I went ahead. The first day she was posted on Rescue Me, I received several inquiries and they just kept coming. I thought with her advanced age that people would not want to help. My faith in people's kindness and willingness to help is intact. This is a wonderful service! My sweet old lady has a fantastic new forever home with an amazing lady. Many, many thanks again!

     I am writing to let you know that the Rescue Me organization helped me find a new home for my Ragdoll cat Cupcake. Our family loved Cupcake but new family members were allergic to her and it became necessary to find her a new home. I posted a request on a Wednesday and she had a new home on Thursday. I met the woman who adopted her and I knew that she was a loving caring person who I could trust to love and take care of Cupcake. It is such a comfort to know that there is an organization who will help find loving homes for family pets. Thank you for all of your help. Becky Clark

     Dear Mr. Gold, I posted the picture of my kitten just today and it was a success! The family that came to rescue him loved him right away. He will be missed and I also loved him dearly. GOD bless your organization for your willingness to help others find homes for their animals that might otherwise not have anyone who would care for them due to whatever their circumstance might have been. I will tell everyone that I know who might have a pet or know of someone who has a pet that needs a loving home about your website. Merry Christmas and a happy new year. GOD bless you and your family.

     'Rescue Me' helped my husband and I find the purrrrrrfect pet! Not only did we find a sweet addition to our family, we met wonderful people who we now call friends. When I first saw TC I knew there was something special about him and when I read his story I could not wait to meet him! Having to put two of our own cats to sleep left an emptiness in our hearts that was difficult to bare. Losing a pet can be like losing a child and for us it was. 'Rescue Me' made our search easy and now we have a ragdoll cat to love and call our own. Although TC lives in our home, the connection with his first family will never be broken. Not only does TC have us to take care of him, but his first family will be there to answer questions and help with the transition to his new home. Thank you 'Rescue Me' for bringing sunshine to our lives and for taking away the pain of loss that clouded our days. Thank you for TC.

I work with a rescue and many cats pass through my email every day. My wish is to find homes for all of them. Thanks much for helping this cat who desperately needed someone to love and care for him.

It took me a while to find Rescue Me!, where I felt comfortable advertising Tiki. Now she has three people to love and cherish her.

     Today Mr. Rosebudd went to his new kitty Daddy. This cat is going to be 4 years old, someone who careless threw him in a snowbank as a kitten. He survived pneumonia, caliciviris but is robust and the best cat ever. He has a ragdol's heart and with all that he's been through, deserves a long and loving life. I am fortunate to have found a new home for him thanks to your adoption service. Always in the cat's best interest, so thank you so much!

I had worried so much that he wouldn't find a loving home with someone who could care for him as he should be and was pleasantly surprised at finding the perfect match for my wonderful boy. A.K. went beyond what I had hoped for and I know she will be a wonderful MOM to him. Thank you for this site !! He had his forever home within a week!!!

     I cannot thank you enough for helping me find a home for two ragdoll cats I had received when my father passed away. We were lucky enough to find a wonderful caring young lady and her family to make certain that my dads cats would be loved and hugged. I was soo worried about them as I am allergic and have other animals that have medical needs, and could not keep them in the house. THANK YOU THANK YOU to you and our rescue!!

     Hi Jeff, Within 24 hours of posting my Ragdoll, Bella, I received a request from a woman who had recently lost her Ragdoll to cancer. My Bella has been a very lucky lady to have found such a loving person. They hit it off wonderfully which lessened the pain of having to let her go. Her previous owner mislead me to believe Bella had been with other cats amicably. Bella did not want to share limelight with my other cat and time was not going to change her mind. In having to do what's best for our animals' well being, it was a difficult decision but knowing how well LG and Bella hit it off --- love at first sight --- it was the right choice. Thank you RescueMe.Org I am very grateful for a site like yours. Regards, Tricia

     I needed someone to 'foster' Sophie for me while I had a double-lung transplant in Florida, which should be approx. 6-9 months, to 1 yr. I have made contact, both via email, phone and personal contact with someone here that has taken on the project. There is also a Ragdoll in their family, so I know they're the right match. I cannot begin to tell you how much this service has helped me. My heart and mind were in great distress as I knew I couldn't take her to Florida with me and I just couldn't bear to let her go permanently. I know in my heart that the person I have chosen is just perfect for the job. Again, thank you so much for Rescue Me! It has been quite a blessing to Sophie and me. Sincerely, Norma Martin

     Thank you so much for all of you who responded about one of my cats, Sara. I got to speak several very nice people on the phone and am delighted to say that Sara has been adopted by a great young man and his wife. I truly appreciate Rescue Me! because our high kill shelter has been full several months. If there was not this site I would have had a hard time finding a home for this beautiful young lady that is going to give Dominic and his wife and of course Ms. Bebe (their baby Pomeranian) so much enjoyment. These economic times have been painful for everyone... to add insult to injury many of us are no longer able to care for our beloved pets. Thank you!

     Thanks Jeff. Oscar was adopted by a lovely woman who rescues problem cats and tries to rehabilitate them. She fosters cats, including kittens that need to be bottle fed, in Forsyth County, NC. Oscar would not use his cat box all the time, usually when he was annoyed by not getting his way. For example, when I went out the back door and he had to stay inside, he would express his opinion in front of the door. This little habit made him very hard to place in another home. I tried to find a good home for him for months. RescueMe was a last resort, and I'm so glad that you were available for Oscar. Mardell

     Hi Jeff - The RescueMe.Org site was a blessing, and I do intend to make a donation once my husband returns to work (laid of for winter) Anyway, within an hour of posting, I had 3 responses for my ragdoll, and after a weekend, I had six! I was able to choose what I thought was the best permanent home for Ben, and we found the perfect fit. I am now going to try placing Ben's former nemesis, Brom - as he doesn't seem to appreciate my tiny army of Burmese kittens either. And the Burmese are NOT going anywhere. Thanks again - Nan

When I didn't see many cats posted I wasn't sure what kind of response I would get. Then the phone calls and emails came in from some of the nicest people. I was very impressed. I found Rescue Me from Google search. It is a very user friendly website. Thank You and Happy Holidays Holly Burghardt
