     Maggie found us this summer. She is such a sweet dog and we wanted to make sure she found a terrific home. I really didn't expect to find her a home as quick as we did, nor have as many responses to this posting as we did! We sifted through all the responses and found the home that we thought would be best for her. We were so happy to find that one good home for her, that we drove her from one end of the Florida panhandle to the other to meet her new owners. Meeting them gave us a peace knowing that she would not only be well cared for, but would be loved as well. That was very important to us. Thank you for Rescue Me! I am telling all my dog trainer and rescue friends about this site. Great work you are doing here.

     I am very happy to let everyone know that we were able to find Penny, our foster rescue dog, a forever home through Rescue Me! A wonderful woman contacted me about Penny, and within a month she was adopted. Penny is loving her new home and family, which includes a fellow English Setter. We are so pleased to have Penny's rescue story end with a happily ever after.

     A young couple in Oklahoma saw our posting on Rescue Me, and had just lost their setter pet of 14 years. It was love at first sight.

     Dear Jeff, My husband and I are the lucky people who adopted Freckles. We left our daughters house after Christmas and drove to North Carolina to pick up Bird (her new name). Thank you so much for your web site. It was so easy to stay updated on the latest dogs needing homes. I have been looking on Rescue Me! for about a year. We lost our last English Setter two years ago and weren't sure if we would replace her. The ache in our hearts was too strong and when I saw Freckles on your site, I knew I had to act fast. We use to show setters and breed them. I didn't want to buy one, I wanted to rescue one and that's what SHE did, she rescued us. She is getting housebroken; she has learned how to heal on a leash, take her treats to her bed to eat and we are working on her getting her leash to bring to us for her walks. And she sleeps in our bed every night. Walking her, getting her kisses and playing with her... PRICELESS! Thank you ever so much, Dian Aulridge

     I received the first call about 'Freckles' within 24 hours of posting her on Rescue Me!, and she was put on hold and adopted by a nice couple from Nashville within the week.

     We have tried finding our English Setter a home for over seven months. Within just a couple of weeks of posting Noel on this site, we received several interested families and she is now placed in a wonderful home!

     I have a very interesting success story! I had never heard of Rescue Me! before, but found the site while frantically trying to find my dog Alice a new home. She is a great dog, but my 3-year-old daughter had startled her (Alice is deaf) and she bit my daughter. The day after I posted her, I received an email from a woman who had a deaf English setter and wanted Alice badly. However, she had an Australian cattle dog who was not getting along with her setter. Long story short, after many conversations and many tears, we decided to trade dogs. Alice found a loving home with a family who knows deaf dogs well, and I am now the proud mama to an Australian cattle dog named Gina. It could not have worked out better. Thank you Rescue Me!

     I've been trying to find Mable a home for a long time. It was hard because not very many people are willing to give the time it takes to work with a deaf dog. This sight helped me find her a loving home, with people who love her and take her everywhere with them. I have told others about this site and other people looking for a pet to rescue. Thank you Rescue Me for getting her a loving home so quick .

     We received several inquiries via Rescue Me, one of which was from a nice couple who have a five month female English Setter and recently lost their seven year old male, who died suddenly with an aneurism. So they were eager to find a replacement and companion for their puppy and a good bird dog to hunt with - which they did by adopting Boo.


Sender: Anna Paskaitis     Date: April 9, 2012 _
     There was no problem using the Rescue Me! site. We found someone we know who adopted our ES. Hunter our other ES is still posted and hopefully will find a home using your site. Thank you!

     Jeff, We found a great home for Flint through your site. He now lives with a couple who can spend lots of time with him. They also have an English Setter, so I feel very comfortable knowing he is in the right home. Thank you so much for your site -- I couldn't have done it without it. Thanks again, Scott


Sender: James Seitz     Date: March 4, 2012 _
     Hi Jeff, Red has been adopted. I couldn't have found a better home for him without your help. I found your web site very easy to use. Every person who responded seemed very sincere, all of which I could trust to take Red. Keep up the great work your site will serve many to come. I certainly will recommend it to all! Thanks Again, James Seitz

     Hi Jeff, We just met with the fellow who will be Bo's new friend and it was a wonderfully tearful experience. To find someone who will love Bo as we have and for whom Bo will become a special companion was priceless. He will be happy, his new owner will be happy and that is all we could hope for. All smiles in these tears. You are doing such good with this site. Thank you so much for helping us find a perfect home for our guy. Jeff and Lena O'Mealy

     Jeff, Rescue Me has been great. We now have used the organization twice. We got Tess (purebred mutt) and Buck (English Setter) through the organization. My experience has been positive if not heartbreaking. Tess was close to being euthanized because no one wanted to adopt her. Both dogs had been severely beaten by previous owners. Buck's previous owner spoke on the state Buck was in when he brought him home. It was sad. His old owner did a great job rehabilitating him but 12 hour work days and living in town was not healthy for a setter. It's sad because people want a dog because it's 'cute' and then realize that they are in way over their heads once the pup gets home. I am fortunate that we have a 120 acre playground that Tess and Buck both enjoy and living at the lake they get plenty of water time in the summer. They definitely are loving life now. I wish more pet owners realize the damage they are doing with their animals and change the circumstances. Or even better, researching a dog before rescuing. Jeff

     Jeff, I have nothing but good things to say about Rescue Me. My dog Buck was adopted within two months of his posting to a very nice family. I just received and email from that family and they are about to send me pictures of Buck playing on their farm. Thank you for the assistance of Rescue Me in finding a new home for my dog. Michael

     Freckles did find a home along with her sister Speckles. I am so thankful I found your website! I would not have known how to go about finding homes for these beautiful dogs. Thank you so much; I have already posted 2 more English Setter rescue dogs on your website. Hopefully they will find their new homes soon. Sincerely, Betty Murfee

     Thank you - we had a very nice family come take Silkie last weekend. The next day they said he was adjusting well and since I've not heard back from them, I assume he has found a permanent and loving home. I had two calls on Silkie - I was very happy with the results.

     Dear Jeff The English Setter found a home today, thanks to your website! The couple that adopted him saw him on your website and sent me an e-mail. They live very close to us and have other bird dogs and a fenced in yard! We are grateful to have found a good home for this very sweet dog! ( My healers are relieved to not have the 'young dog' here anymore) :) I will not hesitate to tell people about the website, it was a blessing! Thanks Again Jackie Sheppard

     Jeff, I found a new home for both Nellie and Pepper. I did get a number of inquiries from the Rescue Me! site. I am confident they have a good home. Gordon Rose

     Bo found a wonderful home!! His new family saw him on RescueMe.Org and came to CT from Albany, NY to meet him! Thank you so much!


Sender: Tiffani Bollinger     Date: September 18, 2011 _
     Bailey was adopted and we took him to his new home today. We have had a very hard time with not having him here but we have no option. He is with a loving family that loves dogs and she is going to keep me posted on all his new life experiences. Rescue Me was very helpful. Within one day of Bailey's posting I had a phone call (two while his posting was up). It is great to have an organization that helps find homes for good Setters. Setters are very sweet, funny and loyal dogs. Thank you for all the help and hope anyone else that is in need finds good homes. Tiffani

     Hi Jeff, I just want to say you have a great web site. I reluctantly posted my English Setter hoping to find a loving home for him. My family is going through some very tough changes and Bandit is not getting the attention he needs and is taking on the emotions. Immediately after posting on your site, I received a phone call from a family looking for everything I described Bandit as being. My eyes swelled up and I got a lump in my throat. I spoke with my wife who had the same emotions as I. I called the family back and explained that emotionally we weren't as far along as we thought. She totally understood and even offered to take Bandit for a period of time until our lives settle down. She too had gone through similar situations in the past and was very empathetic. I thank you for your site and appreciate your interest. Dan Delie

     Jeff: I can't thank you enough for having a part in this site. I was at the brink of insanity with my (old) dog. He was such a nice dog, but had issues with separation anxiety. The next day I had him adopted to a fantastic home. The last thing i wanted to do was leave him at a shelter and not know what happened to him. Now he's gone and it is sad, but he is in a better place with a more qualified owner. Although I will not be replacing him anytime soon, I will refer anyone looking for a dog to your site. So many thanks and have a great day! Sincerely, Dan Lemon
