     Hi Jeff, Many many thanks for creating this wonderful website! We picked up a stray that turned out to be a Catahoula. The owners never came forward, and we unfortunately couldn't keep him because of compatibility issues with one of our other rescue dogs. We spent weeks trying to find a local foster/adopter with no luck, and I refused to take such a precious loving animal to animal control where he likely would have been put down or possibly used as a bait dog. A friend referred me to Rescue Me and I'm so glad! Within days of posting the dog on here, I had multiple people contact me, one of whom decided to adopt! It was so fast and easy. If we ever come across another stray without a home, I will definitely be using this site again. It was another wonderful confirmation that we did the right thing, loving animals (even strays) are worth it, and it is possible to find a loving home!

     I just posted Pumpkin last knight to on Rescue Me. I was called TODAY about her! She met her new family and fell in love. I was so happy to see her hug them and give kisses. While I'm sad to lose such a wonderful baby girl, I'm thrilled she found her forever home. Thank you.

     We are very happy with the results we got on Rescue Me! We have been looking for a more appropriate home for our dog - one with a family that had some acreage and possibly a friend. Our home did not have much of a yard and with our work and school schedules we were not able to give him enough exercise and we felt this made him unhappy. We found a lovely family with the right type of property and schedule to give our sweet dog a perfect home. We do love him, so this was a difficult decision. Finding him the perfect home made this much easier, knowing we were doing the right thing for him. Thank you so much for a great website!

     My husband and I took in two strays that were wondering our court. We took them to get checked for chips and they had neither chips nor tags. We then went the 'old school' route by putting up flyers and calling vet offices, and shelters to get the news out that we had them if they were in fact missing. It seemed no one was looking for them, but they were so sweet and smart that we just didn't have the heart to dump them at a shelter or animal control where they might be put down due to 'space.' Two days after we found them, I found Rescue Me and holy cow! In two days time, one of them had a home and a day later the other did too! We were able to meet both families who are spoiling them and loving them as we speak! It was such a blessing finding this amazing site to help these amazingly sweet dogs. We can't save the world, but we can make a difference in the lives of the ones when the opportunity presents itself. Thank you, Rescue Me!!!

     The original owner of Nala and her Catahoula puppies gave them to me to adopt out through Animal Rescue Kompany. We found very good homes for all of the puppies except Cami and mama Nala. I am thrilled to report that a young couple found Cami on your site and adopted her. Thank you, Rescue Me, for providing a place where she could be seen.

     The three beautiful puppies were taken by DCI, which is the state prison that is in our town. They have an adoption program for dogs that need to be adopted. They also do dog training. The guys taking the puppies were commenting on how nice they were. I hope they will be placed in good homes. Thank you for your service that you provide.

     We rescued Petey last summer, and he was adopted by a wonderful family. A few months later, due to family and dog dynamics, Petey needed to be rehomed. We contacted many rescues to try to get Petey some exposure, but the ST Furever and SE Catahoula rescue groups were the only ones that responded and offered assistance. The organizer immediately put Petey's story on their site & Rescue Me. Petey was finally adopted by a fabulous family who saw him on Rescue Me and contacted us right away. We cannot thank the ST Furever, SE Catahoula and Rescue Me rescue groups enough for caring about this great boy.

     We recently started looking for a new family member. We had lost our beloved Murphy of eight years on May 31, 2013 and had decided we did not want another pet ever. It was very heart-breaking when he passed. So one day out the blue I started searching for puppies on the internet without the knowledge of my spouse. I went to a lot of sites and checked out lots of pets on these sites. I notified the lady who had our 'Lily' and we tried to hook up, but the darn weather kept us from getting together a couple of times. So I went to several shelters and rescues closer to Sedalia (she was three hours away). When my spouse found out about what I had been doing he started searching as well. He fell in love with Lily and her sister Minnie online. So we once again contacted Lily's caregiver and finally we met her. Her sister Minnie had gotten adopted the very day we went to see Lily. We fell in love with her and brought her home that day. She is already so much a part of our family. My grand kids (all 6 of them) love her and she loves them. She is playful with them and never aggressive at all. She loves to be loved and we could spend every waking moment loving her. Thanks to Rescue Me! my family and my newest family member are extremely happy. We really needed her to be in our lives as much as she needed a forever home.

     Thank you, Jeff, again, for hosting Rescue Me! There are so many dogs here to save, and it's tough to do it without the help of your site! I have successfully adopted out ten dogs this year, and I couldn't have done it without Rescue Me! Today this Catahoula pup 'Little Man' found his forever home on a large farm with other dogs, goats, cats, and chickens. Thanks for another successful adoption!

     My one year old Catahoula mix pup Lainey found a new home within days of being posted on Rescue Me! I feel very excited for her because she will get the care and attention that I, due to medical problems, was having trouble giving her. I was sad to see my sweet, beautiful girl go but I know that this is the best thing for her. Ironically, she went to a family with a little boy named 'Chase' and one of her favorite pastimes was to play 'chase' with my nephews. Chase has wanted a puppy for a while so I hope that they become best friends. Thank you, Rescue Me!

     Tulie is a very special dog and we were able to find her a loving new home. In my opinion Catahoula's need homes with people that understand and appreciate their unique qualities in comparison to most other breeds. Rescue Me! makes this possible.

     We called the puppy 'Dixie' for the 3 weeks we fostered her. Through Rescue Me! she found a forever home with Bonnie, Jerry and new fur brother Eddie. They needed a new sister for Eddie as he was devastated over the very recent death of 9-year old Catahoula, Suzanne. Dixie is now named 'Phoebe' and we have received correspondence with her success! What an incredible experience!

     Thanks to Google, I found Rescue Me! Our dog Lassie, a rescue from Virginia, was very old, and passed away last month. Our dog Buddy, rescued at a truck stop, was sad and sulking after that, and obviously missed her. We missed her, too. We found Rescue Me!, and found Mocha a loving and lovable puppy. The lady I contacted was extremely nice and helpful. She gave us a profile of the dog and many suggestions, explained very clearly the adoption policy and stages. We picked up Mocha today, and could not be happier. Thanks and God bless you.

     Thanks to Rescue Me, my special doggie found a great furever home. Banjo was pulled from a high kill shelter on his last day. I posted him and he found a great home within two weeks. This boy learned to shake, sit and not potty in the house in just 7 days! Amazing how far a little love and patience can go. Thanks so much Rescue Me!

     Thank you, 'Rescue Me!' Last night we had a call from a couple who found our posting of the remaining two Catahoulas we rescued...they were found abandoned near our neighborhood, starving and pitiful. With the care of our local vet they were rehabilitated and readied for adoption. Today we delivered them to their new 'FOREVER HOME,' adopted by a wonderful couple. They now have love and kindness, room to run, plenty of food, the company of other sociable animals, and a wonderful future in store for them! It is wonderful to have this link to other like-minded people concerned about the welfare of animals. This was truly an incredible, gratifying, and hope inspiring experience for us. Now all three of our deserving Catahoulas have been placed in a wonderful situation. Thank you again, Katherine & Richard

     Thanks to Catahoula Rescue for helping us to place both of our catahoula puppies! We were able to find good family homes for both of the puppies that we had rescued off the streets! Thanks to all of the people who wanted to adopt these little darlings - we're only sorry that there weren't enough to go around for everyone that was interested.

     Jasper was being treated by a groomer for his demedex mange & I told her we were advertising his picture & story on this site. Well, she just couldn't stand the fact after working with him for so long that someone else would come & take him away so, SHE ADOPTED HIM HERSELF! He has 10 acres, other dogs to play with & a retired couple that loves him like no other dog they have ever had! Thank you for providing a safe place to advertise for homes for our animals. I am forever grateful! Now hoping my other sweet Catahoula, Hunter finds just as good a home! Thanks from Dawna & Ed Christy!

     Hi Jeff, We have found the perfect dog for our family through your rescue site after searching for several months. I had subscribed to the Catahoula rescue for Georgia and Alabama but found our girl just a few miles from our home! She needed a new family because her previous owner couldn't care for her any more. Now he can come visit her and we have a wonderful addition to our family. Last weekend we took her to North Georgia to introduce her to the mountains. She was really in her element and I think we actually tired her out after running loose in the pasture for hours. Then yesterday we introduced her to the Piedmont Park dog park and she out ran every dog in the park. Catahoulas are just wonderful dogs. This one is a Catahoula/pit bull mix. She's very smart and wants to learn. We're looking forward to many happy years. Thanks again for your website, Betty

     Good afternoon, Jeff, Fortunately, Torre was adopted, and I have this website to thank! I took in Torre as a foster after her previous family lost their house due to foreclosure, and was forced to move into a rental house that did not allow pets. My husband and I already had three indoor pets, so we set a deadline to find Torre a home or take her to animal control and hope for the best, of September 22. Meanwhile, a lady in Ohio had lost her Catahoula after being hit by a car several weeks ago. It was very important to her that she rescue another dog, and she preferred to rescue a Catahoula if she could find one nearby. She found Torre's listing on this website and fell in love. We talked several times on the phone and arranged a meeting yesterday, and it couldn't have gone better. They had an instant connection, and even though we lived six hours apart, I felt it was meant to be. Thanks so much for helping sweet Torre find a home! I know she's in good hands, now. Thank you, Emily H.

     Jeff, Cheyenne found a wonderful home. The perfect home. I had several inquiries from this site, and luckily for Cheyenne the first contact ended up being the perfect fit. She is now a happy little girl 'running in the wind through the field' of her new 12 acre home. I could not have picked a better couple to be Cheyenne's new parents. We met at a half way point for each of us so they could meet Cheyenne and I could meet them. I was feeling so guilty for giving her up but my heart is full knowing she will be so much happier where she is. I want to thank you for having this site for responsible pet owners to either find homes for those in need or for those looking to give an animal a new start in life. You are doing a wonderful thing and I will refer this site to anyone who may benefit from it. Thanks for all you do. Ronda Felts Kansas City, MO
