     This is my second Great Dane I have rescued from the Rescue Me site. Both experiences have been very positive. Both dogs are just as they were represented on the site. Both Danes are just wonderful and if I rescue another this is the site that I will use. I also adopted an older Labradane off this site six years ago. Unfortunately she has since passed away, but was also as represented on the site. I would highly recommend this rescue site to everyone looking to rescue!

     About a year ago, I found this website while looking for a way to find a home for a dog that we were suddenly fostering. This site is definitely seen by people; I think we have had more than 10 inquiries about Ky in the past year. Some I investigated, some I didn't. I have been very particular about where 'my' boy would go. He came from a neglectful/abusive past. I didn't want him going to another one. Of all the people that contacted me, there were four near adoptions. About two months ago, I was contacted by someone that felt 'right'. We exchanged several productive, pleasant emails. Also extremely helpful in this process were two rescues. The first was Mutts n Stuff. Chaunessey from that rescue was helpful beyond measure. She found a lady from a rescue in the area, who has 14 years with a Pit Rescue. She did the interview with the adopter and the in home inspection. She called me with glowing reviews on this family! It will be very difficult to let Ky go, but knowing that he is joining a GREAT family helps a lot. In the adoption contract I made sure that I will receive monthly updates and pictures. It makes me feel better knowing that he will have a wonderful life, which is what he deserves. I can't thank you enough for your help, Rescue Me! Ky will be re-homed within the next few days.

     Because of Rescue Me, we were able to place our great Dane in a much more conducive environment for her conditions! At only two years old, she was diagnosed with Wobblers Disease. We have slippery hardwood floors and lots of steps. After seeing her struggle for months every single day, we came to the hard decision that it was time to find her a loving home with a flat yard and somebody that could be with her on a more consistent basis. After meeting her new mommy and many tears, she is happily enjoying a lot of hugs and love, kisses and snuggles. She is a beautiful soul and it is exactly her life she deserves. Thanks Rescue Me!

     Her name is Lily Dane. She has completely stolen my heart. I am her new family, devoted, delighted and humbled by her love and devotion to me. She is one of the truly great ones. How blessed I am to have found her, fallen in love with her, and to have her love me completely. It is nothing short of a miracle! And, all my other dogs love her. Aw! Thank you, Lord! I wasn't looking, but God sent her as a surprise. She is mothering the little black, three month old pup that survived being thrown in Sandy Creek from the bridge. Him, and her four litter mates sadly did not survive the long drop off the bridge. So far, Lily is teaching him manners and both these unwanted and unloved dogs have filled my life with their sunshine and love. Such joy! Now I have eight loving and delightful dogs. Wow! God is so good!

I met the dog at a local Petco during an adoption event and she was everything I hoped for. I took her home and she is doing great. A great family companion. We couldn't be happier! Give Rescue Me a chance!

     Thank you so much for helping me find a great home for my wonderful dog, Rufus. I inherited Rufus, a 10 month old Great Dane, from someone who used to live with me but was not properly caring for him. When he moved, I stepped in to ensure the dog would be safe. I've cared for him since he came to my home in April, but did not think I was going to have to do that on my own. As he continued to grow, walking him and even being safe around the house quickly became unattainable goals. I was completely distraught at the prospect of losing someone who loved me so unconditionally. When I found his new mom and dad, I knew everything would change for the better. Today, Rufus went to his forever home. He recognized the people immediately and jumped into the dad's lap, kissing him all over the face. I was jealous and happy and relieved all at the same time! My life is now safer, Rufus future is bright with a loving family of three plus another Great Dane playmate and a fenced yard. The family was ecstatic they'd found the perfect dog. I can't thank you enough, Rescue Me!!

     There are so many dogs on this site, that I thought for certain that we wouldn't be able to re-home our King. I received an email off someone who scheduled a meet and greet with King. I didn't think it would really develop into anything because I had been stood up the past to meet and greet. The nice gentleman actually showed and talked with me for over an hour. God had answered my prayer and had found a wonderful companion for our King. I'm so glad that I was led to Rescue Me! Thank you once again!

     I wrestled with the idea of re-homing my Great Dane, Penny, for over a year. I had her for over three years, since she was three months old. I love her and didn't want to give her up, but I wanted her to have the life she deserved. She is a headstrong girl and needs a lot of attention. About 18 months ago, I started having a lot of mobility problems and couldn't give her the exercise she needed, so I rescued a German Shepherd mix for her to play with. This helped some, but I felt she deserved more. I posted her on the Rescue Me website. Within two weeks, she was adopted by a nice family with time to spend with her and another rescue dog to play with. Within two visits, I knew that this was the right decision for her. I am confident that Penny's new family will love her as much as I do, and give her the exercise and attention that I can't. Thank you Rescue Me for being there for me and all the animals you help find their forever homes.

     Thank you, Rescue Me. Frankie found a new home within 24-hours and in the area. He now has many more brothers and sisters (and step-brothers a.k.a. ponies) who accepted him into their family. He even has more space to run around than before. The family's daughter decided within minutes of meeting Frankie that he will sleep with her dogs in her room. Enough friends to play with and more than enough hands to give him attention. I know he will be okay. Thank you, Ann, for taking my little boy and giving him the good home he deserves. May he bring you the joy he gave me. Warm Regards, Riaan

     Our family member was undergoing cancer treatments, then divorce! Remington was living with the husband on the family farm when an unfortunate accident happened, and the husband was going to have Remington euthanized. Our family member said absolutely not, took Remington, and called on me for help. We tried many, many rescues to take him, but everyone was full and a shelter was never an option. I posted Remington on Rescue Me, and within days got three responses. A very nice man called who had recently adopted a dog who was very active, and needed a friend to romp and play with. Yesterday, the man, his daughter and their pup came to meet Remington. It was love at first sight, and Remington went to his new forever home yesterday! Our family member was sad to let him go, but due to her health issues wasn't able to care for him properly. Thanks to the networking forum of Rescue Me, she knows her heart can rest easy knowing Remington is in the right place.

     Lucy came to our door, starving for food and love. When I found her owner they did not want her and ask me to find her a home or keep her. I already had five dogs, four rescues. What made this a nearly impossible job is that Lucy had been shot in her face and chest, blinding her in her right eye. I had many people ask about her, but when they learned of her blindness, they were not interested. One family came to see her, fell in love and that was her new family. Thank you, Rescue Me!

     My fiance and I recently lost our beautiful girl, Jade. She was a pointer/lab mix and we had decided eventually we wanted another pointer or pointer mix (she had been my second) because they're such amazing dogs. That same week I came across Hunter's picture on Rescue Me. We went to meet him and the rest was history. He has become my shadow. He is such a sweet boy despite his intimidating size. He and our little terrier mix (also a rescue) are thick as thieves. I'm beyond thrilled we found him. We couldn't have asked for a more well mannered, sweet dog.

     After I read the email and checked with our rescue group, I met the lady who picked up both pups. They were not Great Danes, but a sweet brother and sister who looked like Labrador mixes. I took them to our vet and they were given Parvo shots. Both were heartworm negative also. Our rescue group took them home and expected a couple, who wanted two puppies that were from the same litter, would adopt them. They were beautiful and very well behaved. I have adopted a Great Dane from Rescue Me before and she is one of the most loving dogs ever. Thank you for your great work and this website.

     Smoke now lives in a cabin on 40 acres with a super new mom and a 180 pound Fila playmate. This is a wonderful opportunity for this big girl that has been staying in a contained yard. So happy for all of them. They sent back a message and said they didn't know if they saved Smoke or if she saved them, they had been so sad since their female Fila died and Smoke filled the void. Thank you 'RESCUE ME' for having this site!

     I posted my Great Dane, Stewart, on Rescue Me on Friday, and he was adopted by Sunday. I've been trying to contact the Great Dane rescue organizations in my area for about two months now to no avail. Stewart did not get along with my one year old son. I'm so so glad I used Rescue Me. Stewart is now in a loving home, and I have a great sense of relief.

     I truly appreciate this site. Due to an unfortunate medical situation, I was not able to keep Jackson. Within a few days, he was given a loving home. He is such a wonderful dog that deserved more than I could give. He now has everything and much more. He is truly missed! I am so pleased he went to a safe home where he can continue to grow and offer his new family the love he gave me.

     My partner and I finally moved into a home where we are able to have a dog, which as a dog lover is a big thing for me. We saw Bella on Rescue Me! and fell in love instantly. We read that she needed a new home because another dog was bullying her. We decided since we only intend to have one dog, that she would fit perfectly into our lives. She undoubtedly has. Since then we've become regular fosters for stray or lost dogs, and Bella unsurprisingly has been an amazing blessing with this. For a dog who was bullied by dogs, Bella has become a strong pack leader and has helped us rehabilitate a few dogs now. Our lives will never be the same, this giant puppy has completely changed our lives.

     There are obviously things harder than giving a pet away, but not a lot. This was a heartbreaking decision for my wife and I, but it was the right one for our Dane. Rescue Me! made the process as painless as possible. Within the first day we had several calls from adopters and within three days we had a half a dozen families for us and our dog to choose from. Our Dane found a great home, not far from us, where he is doing great. The adopters let us visit him to make sure the transition was easier for our dog. Rescue Me! is a fantastic organization and website that made the adoption process a breeze.

     Thank you so much Jeff and Rescue Me! Because of your website we were matched with the new love of our lives, Luna, who we are so grateful for! The network involved behind the scenes is fantastic, and without them this match would not have been possible. Again, thank you all so much. We lost our first dane of old age while my son was in Afghanistan, a heart breaking time for all of us. Now my son is home and we decided to rescue again. We were pleased to find Luna, who made the decision for us! Thanks again, Jeff! The Brooks Family

     It has been almost four wonderful months since I adopted Mr. Maslow, a 2 year old harlequin Great Dane. I saw that he and his brother were up for adoption, so I posted both of them on our local Great Dane site, not knowing that I would be one of the lucky adopters. I have two Great Danes and was not looking for another. After some research, I realized he was related to one of my Danes, Gilda! So I contacted Melissa only to find out that he had been adopted. I thought I had waited too long. But, Maslow was returned to Melissa due to separation anxiety and I said, 'Yay, Bring him over!' When they arrived, Maslow ran straight to Gilda and they both ran together out the back door, playing like they knew each other. (I think they did!) He settled in like he owned the place. He tore up a few things out of habit but now is comfortable if I leave the house for a couple of hours. Gilda has never been happier. She was so shy and sad when I adopted her a year prior. Now she can't stop wagging her tail. I had no intentions of having three Great Danes and thought 'what have I done?' But when Mr. Maslow caught me in tears one day he tip-toed over to me, head down, tail wagging and nuzzled my neck. It tickled and I couldn't stop laughing. I realized at that moment, he was meant for me. He runs in the horse pasture, goes to dog parks and sleeps on the bed. I even am working with him to get his Service Dog certification. Thank you, Melissa and Rescue Me! for bringing us together. His brother also found his forever home, too. Keleen

     When a rescue group wouldn't take Dakota back after he started getting in fights with our other dog, they suggested euthanasia. All the other rescues in our area were full, and we were quickly running out of options. Rescue Me! helped him find a new family and most likely saved his life! We can't thank you enough for helping give Dakota another chance!

     To everyone out there considering using the Rescue Me! website, let me tell you that it is a wonderful tool for finding a good home for your beloved pet. I recently listed Hercules my Great Dane on the site and had many replies. I managed to find a great family that will be able to provide Hercules with a wonderful loving home. If you have a dog you need to find a great home for please do your dog a favor and list him with Jeff and the gang on the Rescue Me! website. Please remember that the website is supported by donations given by its users, so please donate to this great site if you can. Thanks again to Rescue Me! Mike and Hercules

     When I decided to adopt a dog I searched the internet for adoption sites. I found Rescue Me! totally by accident. What a find. After watching for a couple of months, everyday, I found Oscar. When I saw his picture I knew he was the one. After reading his bio, he was so much more than I had hoped for. When I met him it was clear he was meant to be mine. I would, and have, recommended this site to anyone looking to adopt a pet. Thank you for connecting me to my new buddy.

     We've been looking for a female Harlequin Great Dane for about a year now, another baby in the house to keep our Great Dane company. When I saw the post for Kate, I immediately wanted to respond, but my husband had his doubts, adopting a young adult from someone we didn't know, you know how the story goes, you don't know what you are going to get. I must say after about a month of begging and pleading he gave in, saying if Kate is still available I should try and see if we could get her. So I did. We have had her for almost two weeks, and I must say, she's part of the family, she fits in so well, our friends say that they cannot believe she's only been with us for such a short time. All I can say, is thank you John, Werner and Jaco. You gave us the perfect gift. We will take good care of her for a very long time.

     I am thankful for the Rescue Me! website. It helped us find the perfect home and family for Jasper. It was apparent right away that he and they would mix well. They had a big backyard for him. The best part was they were as concerned with making the process as easy on Jasper as possible, as we were. Thanks to Rescue Me! they were able to connect with us.
