     My heart was aching for a Great Dane and the slobber kisses only a Dane can give. This beautiful flower became a member of our family and immediately wrapped us around her little toe. She is adorable, loving, smart, goofy and so sweet natured, in short the perfect addition to our family. I thank you, Rescue Me, for facilitating the meeting and placing of these adorable cuties in loving forever homes. You provide a needed service which benefits both people/families and animals alike.

     While searching for a Great Dane mix, I saw Lil Ben's profile and fell in love with that sweet face. We drove two hours to go meet him and it didn't take long for us to fall in love. He is now very happy in his new home and has so many new bones he plays with them all. We think we have found the perfect dog! Without Rescue Me, we would have never found our new family member.

     Luna was adopted today to a very loving home with two young children who are ready to love her and play with her constantly! Thank you Rescue Me for helping Luna find the loving home that she so deserves.

     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.

     Our two Great Dane/Boxer mixes were adopted into a permanent home. Rescue Me is wonderful in that I had several responses very quickly. I would definitely use Rescue Me if I needed to find a dog a great home.

     Thanks to everyone so very much for my Great Dane named Daisy. I have had a difficult and financial nightmare with internet fraudulent persons perpetrating to have Great Dane's for sale. Daisy and I will have a wonderful life together. Rescue Me was prompt and professional on my plea for obtaining a Great Dane. Highly recommend your services to everyone. Will keep in touch and God Bless!

     Thank you, Rescue Me. Brook,this beautiful Great Dane, was fostered then adopted by an incredible family. Actually,to my surprise, a very young family. He is seven years old and undergoing heartworm treatment. I am so grateful. He is surrounded by loving mom, a dad, three kids and their beautiful dog, Daisy May. And how fun is it that their neighbor has a Dane!

     I found a home for my Great Dane in three days!

I hope every animal on here finds a home like my Great Dane did. Thank you Reacue Me!

I hope all the animals listed on this site get great loving homes like Cassie and Bella!

     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.

We lost our beloved been about two months go to Wobblers disease and our home has not been the same until now.

     As a rescue that only works with dogs with special needs, Double J Dog Ranch is always searching for new avenues to get our adoptable pets exposure and into great homes. Vinnie, our deaf and visually impaired Great Dane pup, was the first dog we listed on your website. Within the first week we were receiving inquiries about him and he was adopted into a wonderful home with another Great Dane. Vinnie's new mom drove 8 hours to come and pick him up and we are thrilled. I can't wait to get all of our dogs listed on your amazing website! Thank you, Rescue Me! Without you, Vinnie's new family would simply not have found him. Cristene Justus, Director Double J Dog Ranch Inc.

     Rescue Me was a wonderful experience. We got the call last Friday to let us know that Harley was still available and if we were interested we could come see her. I told the owners that we did not want to come see her, that we wanted her. We drove to her yesterday and brought a new family member home. She slept with me last night and seems to be fitting in just perfect in our little family. I am extremely grateful to Rescue Me for this opportunity to bring a special pet into my home. The owners have been wonderful in explaining everything we needed to know and talking with me today about vet records and meal schedules. I am a very happy new pet owner. Thank you to the prior owners of Harley and to Rescue Me.

     I had so much response for help after I posted this dog's call for help on Rescue Me. I was amazed! She was rescued yesterday afternoon and spent the night at a vet who will dip her today to get rid of all the ticks and fleas. Then she is going to her new home with a wonderful lady who will care for her. She lives close by me, so I will be able to go and visit her regularly and can still take her food at times. Thank you Lord for saving this poor old lady! I am so happy.

     We were contacted by an awesome family who absolutely fell in love with Ms. Annie. She now has a new Mom, Dad, two human brothers and a human sister to love and adore her. Ms Annie will never know neglect or abuse again, and we are so grateful for the opportunity to be able to show Ms. Annie to the world for adoption on Rescue Me!. Meeting her new family was such an awesome occasion, and to see the bonding was fantastic. We wish Ms. Annie a wonderful awesome life, and look forward to all of the future pictures and updates we will receive from her new Mom and Dad.

She is about five years old and gets along great with our three cats, two kids (ages four and six), and friend's dogs. She loves car rides and showers (found out accidentally as she hopped in!). Thanks, Rescue Me, for such a great addition to our family!

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.

     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

We can't thank you enough for helping give Dakota another chance!

     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.

     My name is Jennifer and my brother brought home a great dane named 'Max'. We kept him at our home but already had plenty of pets/good friends. We found him an owner, Lacey, who just took him home yesterday. She was great and very interested and we spoke for about a month to arrange a meeting and to great success. 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. Take Care All You Animal Lovers, Jennifer Felts

     Dear Jeff, Your wonderful service guided a rescue group from Hendersonville, TN to me. They are a Great Dane rescue service and they took both Danes, brother and sister. They are going to adopt them out together. This service is a lifesaver. I also had many other inquiries about them. THANK YOU.


Sender: January Wallace     Date: February 9, 2013 _
     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!

     I am very happy Tonka just went to his new home and I believe he will be happy with his new Mommy. I posted him on Rescue Me! less then a week ago and everyone that contacted me was very nice. I am grateful to the local Humane Society that told me about this site.

     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!!!

     I recently had a Dane that I rescued and asked for advice on how to place a Dane we saved from getting hit by a car, Rescue Me! was a great help. I was impressed with the replies & advice. I recommend this rescue for anyone who not only has questions about placement, but needs to find a good home for a dog in need. Thank-you: Rescue Me!

     I was desperate to find a home for this wonderful great dane and decided to try online and found Rescue Me! I have gotten emails and phone calls from many places. I am happy to tell everyone that Marmaduke has a new home way out in the country. I know he will be very happy. Thanks to all interested parties and for Rescue Me! for being there for me.

     I just wanted to thank Rescue Me! for all the help they have given Forever Paws Dog/Puppy Rescue. Without this site we would have many pets without homes. Duke is just one of the very many doggies that your site has helped find a wonderful forever home. Thank you to all of the adopters who have opened their hearts and homes to a rescued animal. Thank you...Thank you....Thank you!!!

     I had never used the Rescue Me! website, and accidentally stumbled onto it by searching for a Great Dane Rescue. I was able to place Bonnie and Clyde in a wonderful private gated community on the beach. I now have two other mixed breed pups listed... I find the Rescue Me! website very effective and plan on using it in the future, now that I know how to maneuver thru it. Thank you, I am in rescue and have shared your website with others in rescue as well.

     My friend reached out to me about two weeks ago looking for help with finding a new home for her dog Lucky, as she was headed into the Air Force at the end of the year. I looked around and posted on several sites, including RescueMe.Org, and within a week she was contacted by a wonderful family who is a great fit for Lucky, and we were able to find him a new forever home! Thank you!

     We are very grateful to Rescue Me! for assisting us in finding a home for Cooper. We were very sad about having to give him up due to moving. Tonight an amazing couple came and adopted him. We feel it is a perfect match. They have already sent us pictures of him settling into his new home. Thank you.

     My first success story had to be cancelled as the people backed out; however, last night a wonderful family with three boys adopted our Draco. He will be surrounded by little hands loving all over him for the rest of his life. Thanks to many prayers and rescue me for finding Draco and great home.


Sender: Debbie Gates     Date: October 16, 2012 _
     I spent the last month worried about where my Draco would move too - this morning it occurred to me about Dane Rescue. Years ago we adopted thru Dane Rescue. Less than two hours after I put Draco on your website, he was adopted. Thank you so much for having this website available. When I get into my own house again, I will adopt thru this website.

     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.

     This sweet girl was turned into our shelter on Friday because her owner passed away. I posted her picture here on Rescue Me! that night and I had an email the next morning about her. 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!

     Ally did find a fantastic home and is doing well. She has a new friend just like her and a safe big yard to play in. Thanks so much. I still get frequent calls, even though I have tried to post messages so your readers will know that Ally is in a new home, but some even think I am the 'dog whisperer', I have not tried to portray myself as someone to call with issues with peoples' dogs! Thank you for your website, and all the people who took an immediate interest in Ally! Sincerely, Donna Kuster

     Luke was a wonderful dog but unfortunately a move created a problem for a big dog in a little home. I had four calls about Luke. Unfortunately Luke as already adopted by a friend of the family. I would strongly recommend Rescue Me as a source to find a good home for any pet.

     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. Thanks again Rescue Me!!!!!! You will be getting a donation from us soon!!! Thanks Charles and Kathy Saxon
