     We had great success with Rescue Me. Within a few days, we had multiple folks interested in adopting Snickers and Doodles. I could not believe the calls, texts, and emails, some from great distances. I know I will miss them, and the adjustment will be difficult. My allergies and migraine's will diminish, so I guess it's worth it, but we have never had an empty house. It will be an adjustment. I am very happy that they are going to a home with a cat enthusiast; I wouldn't have it any other way.

     We've had to say goodbye to our little girl, Rainy. I got an email and a call this morning from our Rescue Me post. There is a woman who runs a Bed and Breakfast who would dearly love to have Rainy. She already has an eight year old male Maine Coon named Elroy. That is quite a trek (four hour drive each way) for someone to come adopt a kitty, so I am sure it will be a good home for her. It is very sad to see our little girl go. We will miss her and her antics. I know she will have a very good life the rest of her life with the run of a place like that with her new friend Elroy. It's the best we can do for her now. Thank you so much for this site as a resource. I also placed our other Maine Coon, Oliver, with the help of this site last week with a young family. They fell for him instantly when they met him here. I'm certain he will do well in his new home with them.

     It was very easy to use Rescue Me. Ralphie is adapting slowly to his new home. He is still very timid, nervous, and shy at this point. He has never lived with other cats before, but my orange tabby is a nervous fellow in the first place they are staying at opposite ends of my home for now. It's all very normal the way they are going about it. I will update in a month when we've all had a chance to get to know each other better. Thank you Rescue Me and Shelby for making it easy to transition. -Lisa

     I rescued this wonderful Maine Coon baby from a guy named Robert. Robert had Diamond for over one year, he rescued her from this same website. When Robert rescued her, she was nine years old. I wanted an older cat, thinking they are harder to place and would need my help. She quite gentle but very vocal, especially at dinner time. She likes to hiss and bat me with her paw when she first wakes up. We just recently got back from the vet and she seems quite healthy. She had a flee problem and needs her teeth cleaned. But everything else is great. Any further information would be appreciated. Thank you, Rescue Me!

     Simon is the exact Maine coon cat I have been searching for, and he turned out to live very near me. They brought him to me right away! Such nice people! They even gave me a Petland gift card for any future needs. He is gorgeous and I love him so much! This is the third or fourth animal we have adopted from Rescue Me. You are the best!

     Rescue Me helped me re-home my mother's cat in just a couple of days. Ironically, the adopter lived only a couple of blocks away. My mom passed away suddenly in November and my step dad was not really able to take care of the big boy, and he was moving into assisted living. I feel really good about this adoption and I will recommend this site to anyone. I had many inquiries from people who sounded really great. Ya gotta love cat people!

     Just a few days after posting Sebastian, a couple who had just lost their older Maine Coon, contacted us. Sebastian went to go live with them that night! A heated tack room and heated cat bed, access to the outside any time he wants, run of the barn, and access to a warm bed in the house when it's really cold out! So thankful for Rescue Me! We were fostering him and he was not working out in our home. We planned to take him to the SPCA that day after trying him in our home for three months. He loves his new home!

     Thanks to Rescue Me, I got many responses for 'Masterpiece', the Maine Coon. All were not in my state, but far away. Still, I viewed them carefully, to find a perfect home for her, and I did! She went to her forever home to a great retired family. I drove eight hours together there and back. It was well worth it and I get updates and can visit her.

     Lizzie was somebody's kitten! That person got three more kittens and when Lizzie was not pleased, she was put outside! Poor Lizzie lived in love inside with her family for eight months to suddenly be discarded. A kind neighbor saw this act and took her into the safety of their garage until we had room for her at the rescue. Lizzie has found her new home and is now the light in someone's life as she should be! Thank you, Rescue Me, for this outlet of networking. Without your website, I would have less success. We have found homes for six kitties and three dogs with your help!

     I tried frantically for two weeks to find a home for Kaylee. When her veterinarian's office suggested that I post her picture on Rescue Me, I never expected the response that I got. My phone started ringing off the hook! A wonderful family drove 10 hours to adopt her. I had a lot of local calls too, but I promised the Draughn family that I would hold her for them. Thank you for a very happy ending.

     A mother and daughter adopted my pet. It was obvious from the moment they met Bella, she would be loved as family. The rehoming fee was not important to me, and since they had driven so far, I did not want it to be costly for them. Bella being loved is the most important thing. Rescue Me was easy to use and allowed me to place her with an animal lover and not to the highest bidder.

     We rescued Midnight several months ago, and he was a perfect gentleman. We have two elderly female cats inside and an outside male, who lives in our connected workshop. He goes in and out, so he is never left out in bad weather. Midnight was adopted by a very nice gentleman who is single through Rescue Me. Midnight immediately snuggled up to him. He has a forever home. We were so happy that this had a wonderful ending. Thank you so much for your wonderful service.

     I had a Maine Coon named Gertie that passed away. I recently decided I would like another. I was looking all over the internet and almost gave up. I decided that I would look to see if there were any websites through Facebook and discovered Rescue Me. I went to the website and saw Kaylee. She was going to be euthanized if someone didn't take her. I looked at the clock and it was after 11:00 pm. I decided I had to take the chance and call. I didn't reach anyone so I tried again the next morning and received a call back from Alexis. After work and a few phone calls back and forth, my husband, daughter and I drove to pick Kaylee up. It was a 10 hour drive one way, but she is so worth it. Now she sleeps in my bed and follows me all over the house. I love her as much as she loves me. I would recommend Rescue Me to all my friends. I also want to thank Alexis for trusting me to give her a loving home. We still keep in touch. Kaylee has become a celebrity on all of my family's Facebook pages. She's a sweetie. Thank you Rescue Me!

     We drove to pick up our newly adopted Maine Coon mix, 'Earl Grey', and we were not disappointed! He is just as sweet as we had been told, and best of all, he didn't caterwaul on the trip home. In all my years of cat ownership, he is the first cat I have had that didn't hate riding in a car! He and 'Greyson', our other MC mix adopted through Rescue Me last year, are off to a good start. They are both three years old and look as if they could have been litter mates. Thank you for your fantastic referral service.

     I found Apropos on the Rescue Me website and am so very glad that he was not taken before I could get down to pick him up. He has been with us for three days. It is an adjustment for him as we have a huge Saint Bernard. He snuggles and purrs and makes 'biscuits'. We love him so much already. Thank you for this website you answered my prayers.

     We adopted this beautiful girl just yesterday. My daughters named her Luna. She was obviously well cared for by her foster family. We have a dog that loves cats, but I think the dog is taken aback by Luna's size. Luna is persisting in making friends with the dog with a head-butt every now and then. I am so happy to have found Luna on Rescue Me. It was easy to contact the fosters, and to arrange a time to meet with them.

     We were so scared we wouldn't find a home for Mr. Darcy - a nine-year-old Maine Coon. I emailed several local rescue agencies who were pretty discouraging about older cats. I found Rescue Me and was quite hopeful. After I posted him on Rescue Me, I had several responses! One immediately stuck out to us and now Mr. Darcy has a new caring owner who has owned an older Maine Coon before, and is aware of their special needs and personality. I'm very glad this network exists.

     I found my kitty Leo an incredible home. A woman who also had an older Maine Coon mix contacted me in hopes of finding her 'Big Boy' a new buddy. She came to visit the next day and fell in love with him. I could not be more thrilled that he is living in her home, as she was clearly an incredible cat owner and lover. I'm very grateful to Rescue Me for being the gateway for us to find him his forever home. Thank you!

     Within two days of posting Zack and Maggie on Rescue Me, I had a number of calls. The first couple took them home, but the wife had and allergic reaction and brought them back. The second couple and their daughter took them. They sent me a couple of pictures of Zack and Maggie; clearly they both were very happy and relaxed. I had two other serious inquiries after that about them. Until your organization, I had no success with networking, shelters, fliers etc. Thanks so much. I'll be making a donation in the next few days. -Dennis

     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.

     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.

     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!

     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.

     I had several emails and phone calls within a few hours of posting Brodie's picture. I spoke to a few of the interested people but one lady really stood out. She has a 16 year old daughter who wanted him. They live in the country and have another cat and a house trained bunny. His forever family sent me some pictures of him and he looks very happy. Thank you, Rescue Me.

     Smokey and Cream were adopted together to an acreage home with horses. They will be in a similar setting as they grew up in and also they will be together.

     I adopted a six year old Maine Coon cat. He's absolutely the most amazing addition to our family. He's so sweet and wonderful with my kids. When I come home from work in the afternoon, we always cuddle on the floor for a little bit. He's such a mush. I couldn't have asked for a better cat. I am so glad I came upon 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 was adopted by a woman who is giving her a beautiful and loving home. She will be (for the time being) an only cat. 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.

     I am so happy to say that Sweet Pea has been adopted. Although he was lucky to have had the help of a neighbor find him a home, I am so impressed with the Rescue Me website. Within two days of me posting, I received three emails from caring people. This site has restored my faith that there are still good people out there willing to give these poor homeless animals a loving 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!

     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 cannot believe the amount of responses I received, and how quickly I received them! 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.

     Posting Butters on Rescue Me! was a gift from God. We found a perfect match for her within a day, and multiple other possibilities, as well. Butters is living with her new family now, including a teen girl who is a home school student. Butters will be a great therapy for her new mom's special needs, and Butters is loving all the extra attention. Neither of Butter's families can express our gratitude enough.

     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!

     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.
