     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!

     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.

She seems happy and I am so glad to get him a permanent home. I could not have gotten such great responses without Rescue Me! Thanks for finding a great dog a great owner and home.

     I ran into Rescue Me! online, looking for Great Dane rescues in my area, after unsuccessful attempts communicating with a rescue I initially chose. We are moving overseas and cannot take our dogs. Max's adoption was a complete success. My family and I just met the most perfect family for him, and could not be happier. We are truly grateful there are angels out there who are willing to love Max even more than we could. I am so grateful for this website as well as the family who loved him before they even met him.

     I decided to use Rescue Me after most of the options I have tried to get my dream dog Diesel the Great Dane adopted. My family and I ran into some financial issues and could no longer provide like we wanted to for Diesel but I didn't want to just give him to anybody, I wanted to be comfortable with who I chose and have many to choose from. This site helped amazingly before I knew it I had 5 families inquiring about Diesel and telling me their Great Dane stories! Diesel is now at his new home and getting acquainted :) I'm sure he will be very spoiled and lived by this family and I even get to keep in touch :) Thank you guys so much!

     We found a very emaciated great dane by our house Dec 18th. We tried to locate his owners for two weeks. We finally came to the conclusion that he must have been abandoned. We fed him and provided shelter and he picked up his weight. I could not keep him becuase I already have 8 rescue dogs. My 3 yr old grandson named him Jack. Jack is just a super sweet dog. We finally posted him on Dec 30th on Rescue Me and on the 31st we had two wonderful families wanting to give him a home. He is now on a 200 acre farm in South Carolina with another great dane. His new owner took him right into his home where he needed to be. He also has a new name - Blacky. His new owner has emailed us and he is doing great.

     I had to find a new home for my Great Dane and quickly. This site helped me tremendously! I posted my big guy and in less than a week I had found him a new, loving home. Finding a new home for my dog was a last resort and something I never thought I would have to do, but unfortunately Levi was not adapting well with a baby in the house. Levi needs a lot of love and attention and is a great dog. Giving him up was one of the hardest things I ever had to do, but with the help of this site, it made a painful situation a little easier. Although I miss him so, so, so much, I know I found him a great home using this site. Thank you!!!

     Zoey is an AKC pure Great Dane. She was purchased by my wife, but left when we separated. As a full time professional, I could not give Zoey the attention she deserved. She is a beautiful dog. My wife was supposed to find her a home, but couldn't. So on 10/1/2012 I posted her on Rescue Me!. By the end of the day I had a call from a woman with kids who could give Zoey a good home. I loved Zoey and she was well cared for and up to date on shots, heartworm meds, and had been spayed and had the stomach tacking procedure. I just couldn't see her being so lonely everyday. Today, a nice woman with lots of room and kids to play with her came, met Zoey and fell in love with her. We packed up her crate, elevated bowls, toys, dog bed, food and medications. She is off to a better home. I pray Zoey is happy. I know she will be better off with the attention she deserves. She was adopted in less than 24 hours. Of course being disease free, a pure blood animal, with good vet care helped and all the equipment helped.

The people came Saturday afternoon they drove about 5 hours one way to get her. They were a wonderful family and the dog bonded with them and climbed right in the car with them. She only spent one night in the shelter and without Rescue Me! this family never would have seen her. Thank you so much Rescue Me!

     I had a tremendous response to my Rescue Me ad for Great Dane Ramsey. Even though I did not post a photo, I had dozens of calls. It was very hard to choose a new family for Ramsey, I wanted to make sure it was the right fit. Ramsey is a very special dog, well mannered with a unique personality, I wanted a forever home for him. I narrowed it down to three and took the time to interview each before selecting his forever home. I feel comfortable that he will be loved, safe and well taken care of. Thank you Rescue Me for providing this wonderful service.

     We never expected our infant son to have allergies to dogs as no one in either side of the family was prone to pet allergies. But unfortunately he hid and this made it difficult for all involved. If I included our Dane in family events my son suffered & if I didn't, our Dane wasn't getting the family time she needed. It was time to find her a home who could provide more. I tried our local newspaper, the Nickle Ads & even Craigslist. But the people I did receive contact from we're looking at breeding her or turning her for a quick profit. I wanted a forever home! This is when I turned to the Oregon Great Dane Rescue. They had a wonderful site full of information. I placed an ad on the adoption section about our Dane & within 48 hours our beloved pet had found her forever home! A home I felt would be excellent with a caring new owner! It's an excellent idea that a rescue would encourage and provide owners a way to help rehome their Danes!!! This gives us a feeling that we are really having a hand in our Danes future!

     We rescue dogs and have done this for many years. We have placed at least 100 dogs over the past 5 years. Your site is awesome. Thank you for providing this service. We found Brutis wandering in a very remote rural area of Tennessee. It is not unusual to find stray dogs that people just 'dump' on the sides of roads. It is, however, not usual to find a Great Dane in this region. So, in short, we rescued Brutis and we had no idea how we would place a dog as large as his is. We currently have 14 dogs--many misfits that we have rescued and have been unable to place. We searched all possible avenues for lost dogs but no success. We then remembered RescueMe.Org!!! and our previous success with a Red Bone Hound. So we posted Brutis on your site at around 10pm and had 3 calls by morning. All together we had over 10 responses in 48 hours. All very interested in a Great Dane specifically. It was a hard decision but we feel we made the best choice. The adoptive family drove 6 hours to pick up Brutis. They were thrilled to meet him and take him to his new home. We have told many other rescue organizations about your site.

     Our neighbors totally flipped out and threatened us and our dog. So we had to either find a new owner very quickly or do the unthinkable. Within a day after posting on Rescue Me we had an interested person. Thanks for saving our dog :)

     Hello Jeff, We were able to find a great place for Zeus. We had several quality inquiries as a result of listing Zeus (and his siblings) on the Rescue Me! site. Thank you for setting up this site and I truly appreciate your efforts. Best wishes, Sonya Wood

     I actually used the same Rescue Me! post for two of our Great Danes and both were adopted to fabulous homes. I believe one of the families actually ended up donating to your rescue on our behalf. Thank you so much - it really was a HUGE blessing to have your rescue help with the placement of our puppies. They went to such caring and loving homes. Thank you again - Bethany Arnold

     Just want to let everyone know both great danes were adopted together. Clem the male and Luna the female. I am not sure who got them because I no longer live at Diana's but she said they went together. That makes me happy. They have been together for a long time and I think they would miss each other terribly if they were separated. Thank you to everyone who emailed me and to the Rescue Me Society for all of their help. Again Thank you everyone.

     I just posted our Great Dane on Rescue Me! last night and we got several phone calls this morning. Glad to say Dixie went with a very nice family today. Thank you!

     Good morning Jeff, Thank you Pietman has found a new home in Pretoria North and Ounooi his sister is with people in Krugersdorp. Both new owners are keeping me up to date on their well being and they are both adapting well at their new homes. The website worked very well and I had a very good response from people all over the country. The only problem was that people do not realize what it costs to transport an animal over such long distances. Regards Cornans

     Hi Jeff, First I would like to thank you for having such a great website out there for animal lovers! This was one of the toughest decisions our family has had to make. We decided to keep Jazz and somehow make it work. Which we will. There has been so many compassionate people that have responded, it was a very emotional and moving experience. Thank you again for making this difficult decision a happy one. thank you. Laura.

     Hi Jeff, I'm happy to report that Nola was officially adopted yesterday. My experience with rescue me was wonderful! The website was so easy to use and it was really easy to communicate with everyone who was interested in Nola. I was pleasantly surprised at the amount of interest I had from the very beginning. It only took a couple of weeks to find the perfect new home for our Nola. Thank you so much for helping us do that! Lauren

     Hi Jeff, So far so good, Mr. Splodge has moved to a new home with a female Dane as his new companion. His new Dad was brilliant with him and was so calm and collected when the dogs first met that we were confident he would make a great Dad for Splodge. Thanks you for having a wonderful site which is built to help the Gentle Giants of the Canine world Steve

     Thank you Jeff. Using your website was very easy. It allowed me to find a Great Dane that needed a home. I was looking for a puppy under 4 months in order to make sure it was well house trained to my needs. The youngest puppy I was able to find was almost 5 months, but I accepted her anyway because I would rather pay to adopt a puppy than buy the 'perfect dog' from a breeder. Lilly has since turned out to be the PERFECT dog for our family. She is an indoor dog and one of the smartest dogs I have ever seen. If at any time I am able to, I will definitely donate to your cause. Thank you again for Great Dane Rescue. Aaron

     Yes sir we did find a new home for her. We were sad but happy at the same time. I keep telling myself it was the right thing to do, but it was hard to do and i hope the new family treats her well. A couple drove 4 hours yesterday evening to pick her up. The web site really help us out. We highly recommend using this website to help loving dogs find loving homes. Again, thank you. Denny

     She found a home quickly..I met a wonderful lady who come to find out was the owner of Nena's father..she recognized Nena in the post and was excited and instantly asked if she had been taken yet. I am so happy that I, by the grace of god could be so lucky and find someone who could love her...it completely overwhelmed me to find someone to love her as much as I do...and I am so thankful she is going to a home full of love.

     Jeff, Thank you so much for providing such a great service for helping us find new permanent homes for our two great danes. We had multiply replies to our postings within days of them being active on your site, and we had new homes for both of them within 2 months. I really do not think we could have found them both loving homes so quickly without the help of your service. We have made a donation for your group so you can continue to make your service available for others who may need it. Love and light. Lee Ann Odom

     Hi Jeff, We went and rescued this baby and brought her back here to our rescue to keep her from being put into a kill shelter. I will continue to do this as long as god allows us. Doing rescue and really not having any sources for donations an other assistance it is some times hard to do, but this little girl needed a chance and we were able to step up. Thank you an god bless you for what you do. We have been able to save 4 dogs from being put to sleep or sent to kill shelters because of your site. God Bless and Thank you again. Please Keep us in your prayers as we are always in need here. Terry GREAT BABIES RESCUE

     Using Rescue Me! was an excellent experience and we now have two great additions to our family, Duke the Dane and Daisy the Weimaraner. Their parents were able to meet me and our dog at a dog park and then come over to see where their babies would be living. Giving them up has been extremely difficult for them, so to be able to know what kind of home their babies are in seems to be a comfort. We're staying in touch, so not only do we have wonderful additions to our family, we made new friends as well. Thanks for the great site and service! Judith (Judy) Judson

     Daney has found a new home thanks to Rescue Me! Thank you for the opportunity to find the perfect new home for our beloved pet. We were able to locate a couple 45 minutes from our home that was looking for a Great Dane to adopt. A change in our location and lifestyle made it hard to provide the best home possible for our dear dog. Our 5 year old Great Dane is now in the loving care of a young couple who had owned this giant breed previously. They have the time to devote to her and the secure yard that she needs. We are very happy to have arranged an 'open adoption' meaning we have an open invitation to visit her if we wish and the assurance that they will periodically send pictures of Daney with her new family. I have shared the link to Rescue Me! with all my friends on Facebook. I have friends who due to new babies, allergies and changes in lifestyle are also struggling with the hard decision of locating new homes for their pets. I hope they will find the same success that we had with this service. Thanks again, The Lay Family

     I truly have now found the world's sweetest dog because of Rescue me. I had been wanting to adopt a bigger dog for my family but having triplet 1-year olds I was hesitant about going to the pound. Rescue me was perfect because it gave me the option of finding a rescue dog with a little bit of background! Thanks again!

     Your site was a god send for my family, Porsche, and the new owner. I only had her on the site a couple hours and got a quick email and phone call. I knew someone was really interested in our big girl. It only took Saturday through Monday as she was only about 4 hours from us and now Porsche has a new PERMANENT home with another rescued great dane:) This site made all the difference in finding that special home for our baby instead of a questionable one. Thank you so much Rescue Me! Your life savers! Kristina & Porsche
