     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!

My Boughe is a senior kitty and his new mommy understands and knows how to handle issues that may arise. I know he will be loved and cared for.

     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.

     Paige was a sweet kitty that needed a new home. I posted her on Rescue Me and the perfect family contacted me. They drove four hours one way to pick her up. Now she is being spoiled rotten in a home where I know she is getting lots of love and attention. So glad for Rescue Me! I couldn't bear the thought of placing her in an animal shelter.

     Thanks to Rescue Me I was able to find a new home for our kitty with someone who will give her all the love and attention she deserves. This made the very difficult decision to rehome her a little easier. We are so grateful to know she is with someone who will be her forever home. She was a much loved part of our family and now gets to bring that love to someone else. Happy ending for all. Thank you, Rescue Me, for helping us find each other.

     I am so grateful for Rescue Me. I just found this website while searching for Maine Coon rescue sites when I was trying to find a home for a Maine Coon I rescued. 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 just wanted to say 'Thank you so much'. I posted his picture on a Sunday afternoon and got a call the very next day. I really liked that I had control of who was going to be Bob's new family. 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 will not hesitate one minute if I need to place another animal.

I am a person who rescue pets on my own and attempt to fix them up and adopt them back out as soon I feel they are back in good health. Your site makes my job so much easier. This site is out of this world. I am constantly spreading the word about Rescue Me! I do not know another site that is as efficient as this one. I would like to meet you, Jeff Gold.

Thank you millions for what you have done for all the animals and humans out there that need sites like these all over the world!

     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.

     I was worried about finding a home for Izzy, because she had a skin condition. I agreed to foster her. Three days on Rescue Me! and I got a call from a woman, only 20 minutes away, who had adopted a male Maine Coon six mos earlier, also with a skin condition. She and her husband came to see her. Izzy practically jumped in their arms. I feel so good about this match. Thank you, Rescue Me!

     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!

     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.

     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.

     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.

     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!

     Dear Jeff, Thank you very much for providing the Rescue Me! website. Denise was abandoned by her previous owners.... Denise was left behind to fend for herself and try to survive. I was so touched and impressed by her determination to stay at her home that she instantly became a favorite to me. Unfortunately, with 3 cats and 2 dogs of our own, we just couldn't keep her. We fed her and kept her warm and dry through the winter and placed the post on Rescue Me! this spring... I'm confident Denise found an amazing forever home and it happened with Rescue Me! I am very thankful for your site and will be utilizing it again as I need to find a home for one more stray that has taken up residence in our backyard. I'm hoping for the same wonderful results. - Thanks again, Marisa

     We can't thank you enough for helping us to find the perfect home for my aging father in law's companion, Percy. We posted Percy's story and got a response from a wonderful woman who was looking for a cat that matched her laid back lifestyle - a companion kitty. It was a perfect match and we couldn't be happier for Percy! Thank you.

     This little cat found a wonderful home due to her story on Rescue Me! I got about eight emails from people who were interested in adopting her. She's had a difficult life, not much loving care, but last Tuesday, April 23rd, 2013, she and I flew to her wonderful new home in Tucson, Arizona. It was a little quiet flying home without her. But now she has everything that she always needed but never had. True love, loving care, someone who is interested in her welfare. Two wonderful people, shining stars in this universe have taken her in. She will have a yard to explore in, lots of trees to scratch her claws on, someone to see that she has food and fresh water, a dog to become friends with, and a wonderful basket chair (her favorite type) to nap in. Rescue Me! did a wonderful job of finding this recently abandoned cat a Forever Home.

     JoJo was in a low-kill shelter, they got my name through another rescue group for Maine Coons. I posted JoJo on Rescue Me!, and a lady who lives quite a distance away saw her, fell in love with her, drove up and adopted her! This happened in two days!

     I was in need of a home for my cat Little because after moving she refused to come out of the utility room. The new floor plan made it too easy for my dogs to chase her. She lived in the utility room for 8 months when I made the heartbreaking decision to find her a home. I listed her on Rescue Me! and I was flooded with emails from potential new homes. I wanted her to go to a home with an experienced cat person because Little is very shy with people she doesn't know. I also wanted a home with other cats but no dogs. I was able to find the perfect home for Little. Her new mother has been great about updating me on how she is doing and she sends me lots of pictures. I have found homes for many cats that I have rescued but this was a special case and Little is so happy thanks to Rescue Me! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!

I will be packing a box of tissues for the ride...

     I recently had twins 10 months ago and found I did not have time for my cat of 9 years. He required and deserved a lot of love and attention and has always been an excellent companion. I was afraid people would see an older cat listed and label him a problem cat even though if I had more time and energy I would never have imagined letting him go. I wanted to find him a new home where he could roam freely (indoors) and be spoiled again. It was very hard to let him go but I felt selfish keeping him especially since his living quarters were becoming more and more confining. I contacted a rescue but it was hard to imagine him hanging around a foster home and having to transition more than once. I listed him on Rescue Me! and a few people contacted me but I was very fortunate to have been contacted by a very wonderful man who was looking for a cat just like Matrix and Matrix needed someone just like him. I am so thankful he found us and accepted Matrix into his home. I could not have made a list of the perfect person or hand picked someone better than this in my dreams! His girlfriend is also an amazing lady and very much an animal lover. They are truly the perfect match and although it hurt to let Matrix go, I can be assured he is in a much more suitable environment bringing someone else the same happiness and joy he once brought me.

     King George's owner passed away; King George had been an indoor only cat. He went to a new owner but a few months went by and we received a call from our vet that George had been found. We could not locate his new owner and can only assume they moved away and left George out to fend for himself. He was hanging around a restaurant on a busy highway trying to come inside. It was cold and raining. A young college student felt sorry for George and picked him up and took him home, called the vet and located us. He had lost all his weight. His backbone was sticking out... We gave him a soft pillow, good food and lots of TLC. George bounced back quickly. This time, I posted him on Rescue Me! and was contacted within 24 hours by a nice lady 5 hours away. George now lives in the luxury he deserves. Thanks!

     Mellow Yellow has been adopted today thanks to Rescue Me! This website was so comfortable and technically easy to work with and overall it became a safe place for me to post my cat up for adoption. I felt I had strong and positive responses from people who were genuinely interested in Mellow. Therefore, I knew he would find a good loving home to call his own. I posted Mellow this past week, and he was adopted today. He now has a huge house to roam around in and loving people to care for him who really wanted him in their home. Sincerely, Cheryl Mills

     The lovely maine coon cat that was trying to stay warm in our garage during this bitter cold snap has found a loving home with a wonderful compassionate young woman who picked him up today. 'Tiger' showed up in our neighborhood a couple months ago, but at that time we thought he had 'people'. He looked well cared for with beautiful brushed fur. As time went by he began looking thin, matted and scared, and we realized he'd been eating in our garage where I keep food out for a wild orange stray. It was obvious he had nowhere else to go, but I couldn't get close to him. We put a large animal bed and with the onset of cold weather added a heated cat bed to the garage. He quickly discovered them and moved in. It took a couple weeks or more before he would allow me to touch him but then he cuddled right in and purred. His body was full of lumps of matted fur tight to his skin. It also became apparent he couldn't hear well, so it was even more of a challenge to get him to be less fearful. We have four other cats so could not move him into the house without problems, and we are so thankful this lovely young woman with the big heart has adopted him. He's gong to be an absolute love, and deserves a good home.

     I am extremely thankful to you at Rescue Me as my sweet girl Cami found a wonderful home with two loving and special people within two days of my posting. Your site rescued me as well since I had to give her up due to my health and physical limitations so that I was no longer able to care for her properly. I am happy knowing she is now in a good home! Cami is now living a fabulous life because of your rescue site and I am thankful to the loving couple that adopted her and took her into their lives. I can now rest easy knowing that she will be happy with them for the rest of her life. Thank you for helping by putting us in each others lives.

     Garrett, my 10 year old Maine Coon, was adopted a couple of days ago after only posting for one day on Rescue Me! I posted his information on Sunday night, and by Monday had eight emails requesting more information about Garrett. One thing I liked about this site was the ease in posting information -- on other sites it is hard to even find out how to post an animal. Most sites seem to be developed more for the folks doing the adopting rather than those posting animals for adoption. Thanks again. Hopefully we won't need to adopt out any more of our animals, but if we do, we'll definitely consider using your website.

     Three hours after I posted Willie on the Rescue Me Maine Coon website a wonderful young man called inquiring about her. He came to see her with his family visited for about an hour to make sure they were compatible and tonight he came to take her to her new home with him. I believe that Willie will have a wonderful life with this gentle man named Frances and truly believe that somethings are meant to be such as Frances and Willie Girl finding each other! That you Rescue Me! for assisting in finding a happy home for my girl, Willie.
