     After posting Linus for adoption I started receiving calls. I posted other places, but Rescue Me was the most popular site. We found him the perfect home and so far after one day seems very happy.

     My baby girl found her new forever home by a nice couple from Oklahoma! Even though I was in a cat carrier, (a big one) I was transported to my new home by private airplane. And I liked it! This is a great site for finding your new best friend. After I submitted my post for Stormy, only two days later and I was contacted by two interested parties. So thank you, Rescue Me, for the easy access and the free service.

     My success story is about a white Maine Coon Cat named Rosebud. She was found on the streets. Rosebud was frightened and starving. She was also spayed and microchipped. The microchip led us to discover that she was adopted from the city shelter. When the owner was repeatedly called, the phone would be answered, then the listener, hearing that it was about a found white cat, would hang up. This happened several times. Emails to my phone and email address were received, but not responded to. It seemed pretty clear that Rosebud was no longer wanted. Once she was posted on Rescue Me, the responses poured in. Many wonderful people offered to adopt her, to foster home her, etc. Yesterday, Rosebud's adoption became a reality, but this time it was to a caring, responsible couple whose beloved 17 year old cat had recently passed away. She is already the queen of her beautiful new home. Rosebud went from rags to riches thanks to Rescue Me!

     After the death of my almost 13 year old cat and enough time had past and was ready to adopt a kitten (I feel it's important to rescue) I started my research. I was interested in a Maine Coon or Maine Coon mix kitten and stumbled on your organization. I would see the post on Facebook and when Hunter and Hazel popped up, I knew they were meant for me, even though I originally wasn't looking to adopt two kittens. I emailed Jen from St. Francis and with the exchange of a few emails and a four hour trip I picked up my new fur babies. Thankfully, I happened on your website. Thank you Rescue Me! Sincerely, Dee

     Thank you Rescue Me! I received 10 applications through this site for two beautiful girls I was helping an owner place. After interviewing there were two absolutely wonderful potential homes found and the girls, Piper and Bella, were placed with a couple about two hours from their original owner. They even keep in touch and sending pictures! Again, thank you for the wonderful service you provide!

     Sammy was exactly what we were looking for and well worth the six hour drive. I was really happy to meet his owner and speak to him at length on the phone to make sure he was the right cat to fit in with ours. A little over a month later, and all of the cats are getting along and even sleeping together. Sammy is such a perfect addition to our family and all of our friends and people and the vets office love him too. He purrs like a motor and we just love him. Thanks, Rescue Me!

     What a great service! I don't know how you do it but I had so many responses to my posting for our three year old Maine Coon. I was able to communicate and place him quickly despite the fact that he needed to be an only cat and needed special consideration when it came to being placed where there is a dog in the home. We found the perfect spot for him within a week of posting on Rescue Me. True, he is a purebred cat, young and healthy, so I'm sure that makes placement easier but I also had him posted on Craigslist and Adopt-a-pet and received easily six times the responses from Rescue Me than any of the other combined. Thank you for providing an excellent service!

     Rescue Me was instrumental in getting her adopted. It can take a while, but I knew that she was getting seen and ultimately, adopted. Very thankful. Adopter drove a long ways. I'm so appreciative that the website and format up got her adopted to a person really wanting her. Thanks much!

     Thumper is aptly named. After being caged for months, it took a little time to get her out of the corner where's she stayed only venturing out for a nibble. She has the run of the house now and sleeps in her basket in the middle of the family room. She even visited with the noisy grandchildren and has found Popo's recliner a very safe place to nap. We have to rename her, she hasn't thumped us in a while and sits at attention for brushing and tickles of course it costs a few treats. Thanks to the rescue center and Rescue Me for matching us and saving her life.

     She is beautiful; after being 'caged' for months. But she was well taken care of by the ladies at the shelter. She was very vocal on the way here. And then, she found a safe corner, close to the big front window. It will take time she has nothing but time now with big rooms waiting to be discovered and a big comfy couch. She'll find all that in time. Welcome home, Miss Thumper! Thank you Rescue Me and Bayou Animal Service for bringing us together.

     Today is a very good day. My lovely Toby Two Toes was adopted today by a very nice lady who lost her lovely cat to illness not too long ago. Rebecca and Toby Two Toes quickly became friends. So she took him home today she has informed me that he is chatting with her on their three hour ride home and all is well. Its funny Toby was not happy here having to compete for attention with other cats and never made a sound in the seveb months since I rescued him off death row. I am thrilled he has a person and forever home of his own. Thank you, Rescue Me, for making this possible. I donated Toby Two Toes adoption fee to Rescue Me moments ago. Thanks so very much.

     This post is to praise Rescue Me as a premier venue for posting and adopting pets, such as my Maine Coon mix named Buster. This website is free, clearly organized and user friendly. I commend Jeff Gold and his team for providing this excellent forum to rescue pets. Buster recently was adopted into a very lovely family who have now given him a special place in their hearts. It took a while to find his fur-ever home, after several 'nibbles' that didn't work out. Buster's new mama sends me photos and updates on him, and I couldn't have asked for a better outcome. Thanks so much, Rescue Me!!

     Buckwheat was adopted (along with his brother) to a lovely lady named Jean. I could tell immediately she was a cat lover. She met them at our home, willing to do it over time, and let them come to her when they were comfortable. She emails me pictures and updates and I know she will love them just as much as we do. Thank you, Rescue Me!

     We just wrapped up Ceaser's adoption to a great home. I've had many inquiries about him, but I knew that Steve would likely be the person we'd go with. Every single person I had a conversation with was absolutely delightful. I had not one worry about the quality of life Ceaser would get from anyone who adopted him from this site. The gentleman that he went to was very knowledgeable about the breed and knew what he was looking for. Very, very pleased. I will always keep Rescue Me in mind should I look for another Maine Coons in the future. I can't wait to hear from the family that has adopted him!

     We are overjoyed with our new family! It was very nice to be able to have access to photos and some background of the pet through the Rescue Me website. It was also very nice to be able to meet them in their environment, spend some quality time with them and their owner, and to be able to do so at a time that was good for all. They have been with us for 42 hours at this point and have adjusted well. Thank you for encouraging this type of adoption. Best Regards, Robin

     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 recently took in another Maine Coon. The family could no longer keep her due to extensive traveling several months out of the year. I tried for several months to help her incorporate into my cat family of five, but she was from a hoarding situation. She was so so scared of other cats that it just wasn't working. She was getting very stressed, as were my other cats. I had to keep her separated, which is not a good thing for Maine Coons. They like constant company. I was hoping she'd be a buddy for my current Maine Coon, but nope. She wanted nothing to do with any of my other cats. So, I posted on Rescue Me, and received several inquiries. We found the perfect home for her. A gal who is retired military adopted her and has cat toys all over her house. Tiny was immediately relaxed and is being spoiled rotten. I'm very thankful for this site!

     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!

     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!

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!

     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!

     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.

     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.

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.

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'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.

     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.

     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.
