     I adopted young Zuli, a one and a half year old Maine Coon girl, who had been rescued by the wonderful Kim from a kitty mill. By a year old, she had birthed a litter, had a damaged tooth with infected gums, and no vaccinations. Kim had adopted her half sister and saw the pitiful conditions of these breeders. She could not leave this innocent girl there, and took Zuli home with her and nursed her back to health. I saw her posting on Rescue Me (luckily before her photo had loaded) and called right away. My friend and I then drove the hour and adopted her. She is the most adorable little Gray, Maine coon girl with a very distinctive face. I am completely smitten with this new kitten. She is the best cat traveler, I have ever known. I had had two other Maine Coons in my life, one who found me as a kitten on the streets and followed me home, and later one other big boy who had passed away of natural causes over a year ago. Zuli is the answer to my prayers for my new feline best friend. She is adorable and wonderful. I anticipate many years of joy with this darling and very special girl. Thank you Kim for being our godmother and thank you Rescue Me for connecting me with the special cat of my dreams.

     Thank you, Rescue Me. Logan, his brother Angelo and mom Marisol were dumped in a back yard. The two kittens were very young and Logan's brother had a broken jaw and is also deaf. When they were all ready, all three were put up for adoption. Angelo was the first to be adopted and is living with an amazing family. Today, Logan was adopted by the same family that rescued him. Mama Marisol is still looking for her forever home!

     It's never easy when you have to let go of an animal, but sometimes it is best for all. I did not want to have to take our kitty to a shelter, but we needed to find him a new home. Rescue Me allowed us to find him a new wonderful home with someone who could continue loving him. Thank you so much!

     I posted my Maine Coon up for adoption on this website and found the perfect family for her. I was stunned to receive over 15 responses of interest in her. The family that adopted her are the best I could ever have wished for. I think she's getting even more love there than she was with me! Thank you so much Rescue Me! Awesome that we have this venue to use to help us when we need to re home a pet! It's a heartbreaking process enough as it is, but to find the right home and audience is just a real blessing.

     The young lady that adopted Rascal was very sweet and she seemed to love him right away. This must be one of the firsts, but I just posted last night that he was available for adoption and she contacted me this morning and we met at her work and took him a couple hours ago. Thank you, Rescue Me.

     I am so happy for Harry. He has found the perfect forever home. He is such a sweet boy, I am just sorry he didn't get along with my cats, but he is purr-fectly content in his new digs. He settled in immediately, like he had lived there from day one. I always love a happy ending. Thank you Rescue Me for being there for Harry. You all are the BEST!

     My son is terribly allergic to cats and has severe eczema with secondary infections. No medications/specialists have been able to help. We had to re-home our loved kitties, and one day after posting one of our Maine Coon's, Van Gogh, I received an email from the kindest couple who had recently lost their Maine Coon and wanted to adopt. Today, Van Gogh went to live with a caring couple, and I know he will be well-loved. Thank you to Rescue Me!!!

     I've been waiting for the 'right' cat to find me for a few years now, since my beloved Paws died at around age 22. Mostly I wondered if it would be fair to adopt, since I might only live another year - or another 30. Who knows? But since I moved in with my son and family (three kids, three dogs, two rats, fish and frog) it seemed 'right' and by golly, there was the 'right' cat just waiting for me at Rescue Me! From the minute she arrived, it was as if she'd always been a part of our family. She very quickly let the big goofy Lab/Shep know who was boss. The bulldog hasn't noticed her yet - he's more interested in her food. Our 18 year old Lhasa wouldn't notice an elephant in the house. She sleeps at my feet as all my cats have done - but next to them, not on them!! YES!!!! She's the perfect cat, at the perfect time... Already spayed thank goodness, and without higher adoption fees some places charge - it's just not affordable for many people. I'm happy to be able to just donate what I can afford to help Jeff just a little bit. Thank you, Jeff, for the wonderful work you're doing!!! I just haven't felt 'whole' without a cat these last few years. The boys adore her, and my three year old granddaughter is totally fascinated with her ears and soft fur! My daughter in law adores her, although with three kids, she's too worn out to spend much time with her, and my son is all excited and can't wait to meet her. Our critters are totally pampered and loved!

     Hi. I just want to share Sassy's story. There was a lot of interest in Maine Coons, and I had numerous calls from states away. Out of those calls, one came to see Sassy. That was all it took, was one serious person. I am SO HAPPY, my Sassafrass is in a nice warm home being cuddled and loved on as she deserves to be! I want to thank Rescue Me for the work people do behind the scenes to place animals in good homes. Thank you!!

     Our gorgeous Lulu found a new home with a loving woman just one week after posting her on Rescue Me. We are so happy that we were able to find her a new home rather than having to place her in a shelter. Now that our two cats are living in separate homes, they can both have happy, stress-free lives. The process was very easy and we are very grateful for the Rescue Me adoption services.

     We are delighted with our Rescue Me Maine Coon adoption. We had a place in our hearts and our home for a young adult cat. We explored many avenues before finding Rescue Me. The process went so smoothly; it was unbelievable. Gracie Girl has a forever home with us, and her previous owner will be able to relocate out of state with reduced stress and worries. One tip I would give folks is to inquire about several cats, as folks do not always send a reply.

     Salem has a new forever home. His transition was difficult at first due to Salem being a senior and never having been away from my home, but his new family showed much love, kindness, and patience. They kept me updated and invited me over to visit Salem to help comfort and make his transition less stressful. I'm happy to say their love won out. Salem has bonded with their oldest son, who gives him extra love and attention, I'm so grateful to Rescue Me for having this site. It has allowed me access to other cat lovers and the ability to re-home Salem into a loving family!

     I had been looking for a home for Lucy for a couple of months. My health is not good and I needed to find her a new home. I talked to a lot of people in my day but no luck. A local rescue was full with no place for Lucy. They gave me the Rescue Me site information to see if you could help. Within an hour or so of posting here on your site, I got a call. The girl had been looking for a Maine Coon cat for some time and was not going to settle for anything else. She had checked every rescue and every site until she saw Lucy on your site. She had just walked in from school and called me. The girl, along with her Mom and Dad, drove three hours to pick Lucy up. Lucy took to them straight away. It was like it was meant to be. I am so happy. Lucy found good people, a good home and lots of love. The girl said she will be sending me pictures of Lucy; now how cool is that?! Thank you, Rescue Me.

     Rocy was said to be not adoptable by the holder of him. I was not convinced and we had someone pull through and offer to foster him for two weeks. It is a huge success because Rocky liked her hubby- he is a man's cat and didn't like being cooped up in a big room with a lot of feral cats. That was the problem, but we wouldn't have known if he didn't have a chance. Thank you, Rescue Me, for your wonderful site and also for Pawzclawz pet food pantry, Diana for helping me find you!!

Marble's mom drove over 150 miles to pick up Marble and was such a kind person I waived the adoption fee. Marble's mom promised to keep in touch and send pictures of Marble as she grows. I would like to thank Rescue Me for their site. This was a great experience and Marble now has a perfect forever home.

     Hello Animal Lovers, My cat Brody was adopted after only a few hours of being posted on Rescue Me! We moved him from a place where he was free to run and play with other cats outside to our new home where he was stuck inside in a third floor apartment. Even though we love him very much, we knew he was unhappy after noticing that he was trying to push our screens through to escape outside. The family who adopted him have other cats, two and a half acres of secure fenced in yard and 150 year old trees for him to climb. Three generations of cat lovers came to pick him up! I will miss him, but I know without a doubt that he is in the right family. I'm glad we brought him to our new state because now he has year round to play outside with his new tribe. Sincerely!

I posted him on a Tuesday evening, and within two hours I was receiving emails from people all over Florida wanting to meet the kitty. By Thursday, I was meeting with a potential adopter who took him home and adopted him. I have been doing rescue work for years, and this is the fasted adoption I have ever had...all thanks to Rescue Me.

I was able to see the initial visit of the potential family. Let me tell you, it was love at first sight! Watching the family bonding with Bob as soon as they walked into my home, allowed me to not worry if this family was right for him. As a matter of fact, they have sent me many pictures of him getting used to his new home. I know I made the right choice. He is extremely happy. He is being treated like a king. Thanks so much again!

     I moved to Georgia from Hawaii in March 2013. I tried for 2 months to find Jean a home, asking people, looking for no kill shelters. Somewhere he could be taken care of, but every place I tried told me, 'No.' With the anxiety of getting evicted, fined and losing Jean to a county shelter, I started becoming depressed. Luckily, a woman from PAWS told me to try Rescue Me! and as a last resort, I did. I made a video message featuring Jean, and in just two days a wonderful man named Michael e-mailed me and said he and his family definitely wanted my kitty! I took Jean to their home and was greeted by Michael, his wife and his two young children. Their home was a beautiful two story house, with lots of room space, and window sills for Jean to climb up onto. He loves staring out of windows. Compared to my apartment, their home was a castle for Jean to play in. His two children were so excited to see Jean, and I really appreciated that the little ones understood to give Jean some space since he was a little frightened to be some place new. Thank you Rescue Me! for such a wonderful service you've created, and thank you, Michael and family, for taking Jean in. From where I come from we say Mahalo nui loa. Thank you so very much.

     Both my kittens, each part Maine Coon, got adopted by a great artist. I belong to a rescue group and I initially had five. Three got a good home fairly fast... I became desperate when the last two reached six months, and discovered Rescue Me! Within 30 hours of posting their photos, I received a phone call from a fairlywell known artist who was ready to adopt both of them. The more I talked to him, the more I thought he was perfect. I drove down with a friend with the two kittens and brought them to his beautiful home. It was a 1,000 mile trip. Immediately, Cheggo the brother was at home and slept with the artist the very first night. Harrison slept on his personal cat tree. I loved the people I met, the art, their home, their outlook on life and the artist's paintings. These two brothers are incredibly lucky, and it was worth waiting for the perfect match.

     Bangor is a beautiful, sweet Maine Coon who was abandoned by his owner. I took him into my rescue program to put up for adoption. He tested positive for FIV so I placed a post with Rescue Me! for a special needs adoption. The most wonderful family of five adopted him, knowing that he could get sick at any time. I then had a different, more specialized test done on him, and its turns out he does not have FIV after all! The results came back on Christmas Eve, so it was the best gift for me and his new family.

     I was very weary about posting up my handsome man on any site especially since we have had him since birth. Due to some personal circumstances, I had to make this decision but I felt assured this site would be great. I got an email from a nice woman named Porter with a love for animals who has rescued a beautiful bull mastiff, and has five acres with a horse. The animals are her children, which stole my heart. Husky is now at his new home. Though he will be very missed I know he is with a great lady who will love him furrever.

     What a happy ending! Molly's former owner was put in a nursing home, and her house sold a few weeks ago. My husband is allergic to long-haired cats, so we weren't able to add Molly to our menagerie. The Fishers, who have a Maine Coon show cat, kindly took Molly. She has quickly become a member of their family. She prefers a separate location from Kenny, the show cat, but Kenny checks on her often during the day. Molly has taken to her new owners and sits by them as they watch TV and fold laundry. Thank you Rescue Me! for the good work you do!

     This is my first experience using Rescue Me! I was happy that it was so easy to post my cat, and within hours I was surprised at the overwhelming response of people interested in him. This was a great experience. I was nervous about posting my cat online, but I found an excellent new family for him. Thank you so much for helping me!

     A few days ago I posted my beautiful kitty to help find a loving home for him. Within hours, folks from all over inquired with great questions and sincere interest. Happily, I believe I have found a wonderful match for my most deserving boy. I was expecting the process of finding a loving home for my kitty to be long and difficult. But Rescue Me! seems to be populated by animal lovers with a good heart.

     Fluffy has a new family. Lia and her son traveled over an hour to my house. Then we spent two more hours trying to find the hiding Fluffy. This was good because I got to know Lia and her son Aston, and they are very nice sweet people . Dad didn't come that day but apparently Fluffy likes Dad, too, so it worked out well. Fluffy is a very loving cat and has a distinct personality that I think is the Maine Coon in him. They are such loyal cats that people who have had Maine Coons seem to stick with the breed because of the loyalty. Thank you Rescue Me! for helping Fliuffy and several of my other rescues find their forever homes.

     Rescue Me! made a huge difference in Hobo's life. He found a forever home which I think is going to be perfect for him. I think he will be good for her, also. We are going to keep in touch so I can see how he is doing. He was a stray needing someone to love him and keep him safe, I think he's found both. Thank you!

     The first night home with our new 'Angel' was great! Ute absolutely described Angel to the tee. Angel is loving and affectionate and in good health. The transition between her and our 102 lb Lab, on the other hand, is still in progress, but I have no doubt they will soon become best friends! Thanks so much, Ute, for all you do and the effort you give in ensuring these guard cats find good homes! Perette

     Bandit got adopted, thank you so much! Rescue Me! helped me reach more people than I could on my own. This will allow me to take in the next animal and prevent another one from staying in the shelter. I plan on donating as a thank you for helping me find homes for Bandit and any other animal I foster in the future. Sincerely, Tracy

     Puma has been adopted by a wonderful couple that is going to give her a great home. We adopted Puma in February and since then our little eight pound calico has bullied her. Adopting is a huge responsibility and knowing that she's going to a loving caring home is all we could have ever asked for. Without Rescue Me! I'm not sure I would have found the right home for Puma

     Thank you so much for assisting me in finding a good home for my beautiful cat. I found this poor cat starving and pregnant outside my home during a tropical storm. When I brought her home from the vet, she immediately jumped into my lap and began to purr. This was not a feral cat, just a displaced house cat. She became a wonderful addition to my pet family, 'adopting' some kittens I had rescued. I would have kept her permanently, but my landlord threatened to take her to the local animal shelter if I did not find another home for her. I really did not want to traumatize her again by putting her in a shelter where she may or may not have been adopted. By Divine Intervention, just days before the deadline, I was contacted by a gentleman who wanted a Maine Coon Mix for his mother. It seemed like a perfect match. I cried when I had to leave her, but the new owner seemed very pleased with the cat. Thank you again.

     Rescue Me! is an amazing site. We were able to get our two cats adopted together, which was great since they were brothers and have always been together. Also knowing that the new family loves Maine Coons and knows the pros and cons of this breed of cat made me feel better about letting them go. Thanks so much.

She will be a part of a loving home with a mother and grown daughter who saw this post... She came over to visit for an hour, and happily got acquainted so we could give her some clues and characteristics. Thank you, Rescue Me Maine Coon Rescue!

     I would like to thank Rescue Me! for helping me find a new home for my cat. I have been trying to find someone to take him for a few months now, and I was getting discouraged. I just posted him a few days ago, and a very nice couple came today and took him home with them. I feel very confident that they will be very good to Jazzi. He is such a sweet boy, and I do miss him. I just could not give him the proper care for economic reasons, and I am very glad that I found the Rescue Me! website. I was afraid to post him on Craigslist; I have heard so many stories about what happens to cats posted on Craigslist. Thank you, again, Rescue Me!, you truly are a life saver.

     Thank you, Rescue Me! We loved our dear Maine Coon but with temporary 'no pet' housing in our future, and a second baby on the way, we needed a caring home for our Tex. Our prayers were answered within one day by a terrific man who adopted our cat as a birthday gift for his wife. Thanks so much and good luck to all.

     Merlin has found a fur-ever home at last, thanks to Rescue Me's Maine Coon Rescue... Keith Gleason, having owned two Maine Coons in the past, drove five hours round trip to claim Merlin. My big, beautiful, 16-pound baby hid under the sofa and cried piteously, but he warmed up to Keith much more quickly than expected. Keith has emailed photos showing Merlin cozy on a bed, gazing out a window, playing Goldilocks with all the chairs, exploring with confidence instead of cowering in the closet. Finally, the little jungle prince is king of the forest. No more daily persecution from Bobinksi, our first cat. Thank you, Keith and Terry, for opening your home to Merlin, and to Jeff Gold for founding and maintaining Rescue Me!

     I had several calls on my Maine Coon, and one guy coming next week to see him. I've had so many immediate responses, I've taken his post off Rescue Me! because I have many waiting in case he doesn't want the cat.

     I was feeling so discouraged with finding my baby a new home! I resorted to the local 'List' to post him and got no calls in 3 weeks! I then posted on Rescue Me! and had 3 calls in the first 6 hours. And that was without a picture! Found a home with 5 kids, 2 dogs, one cat and 30 acres of sheep pasture! Cappy may think he died and went to heaven... But really, thank you Rescue Me!, for lifting the burden... Now, although I have to 'set him free' and gift him to a new home, I know it will be a happy life of forever hunting! Oh the treats you will find... You will be missed Captain Hook, my masked sweetheart!
