     Thank you, Rescue Me. Cody has gone to a fantastic home. His new owner fell in love with him the minute he walked out of the trailer!!! Cody's new mom was seeking a partner that would help rebuild her confidence and be patient with her. This was a perfect match. I want to thank everyone that inquired about Cody.

     I posted my four horses on Rescue Me. My husband and I weren't riding or working with the horses anymore and we felt they needed a home where they would have a job and a purpose. Nakita and Little Bit went to a very nice lady looking for horses to work with. Her friend adopted Shiloh and Rahab. I know they went to good homes when I watched Rahab's adopter work with her. He was very patient and used natural horsemanship to get her haltered. I am so happy that Rescue Me was available to help me find new homes for my horses. I was hesitant about auctions due to the horse slaughter buyers. Thank you Rescue Me and Jeff. We have also adopted a Pyreneese/St Bernard mix through Rescue Me. He is a great addition to our family and to the security of the farm. He is such a sweetheart!!

     Pocket found an absolutely amazing home with Jane. He receives the royal treatment daily, and is loved for who he is, not for what we would like him to be. He is so very deserving and I appreciate Rescue Me being the liaison between myself and Pocket's new Mom. He waited for two long years to find his forever home, and because of Rescue Me, he finally found it!

Unfortunately, my parents have become too old and in need of care themselves and were no longer able to care for Sir John. I posted him here and, well, the response was positive! Over ten different contacts were made and a wonderful new home and owner came about. Thank you so much for helping the horses and those who care for them. THANK YOU!!

     I posted my horse here at Rescue Me quite some time ago looking for the right home for my horse. Many inquiries later, I found a good home and just moved him over the weekend. I'd tried to place him locally with friends, but were it not for this website, I may never have located the 'right' environment for him. Thank you.

     We had a fantastic response to our posting on Rescue Me to re-home Beauty. The responses ranged from people wanting to adopt to people just offering pasture space for free if needed. Thank you to all of you who care! After careful consideration, we found a family that was a great match for Beauty. When they came to pick her up this morning, this amazing horse who had never been on a trailer, trusted (and she has a great temperament!) these people she had come to know and just walked right into the trailer.

     This was our second successful rescue through Rescue Me. The family we got him from were doing a wonderful job pampering him. He needed a home for someone to just love him and gently ride him for life. My daughter is just losing her horse. They already have that same connection with her previous horse and she had once they meet. He will come to her whether she calls or not. And waits for her unconditional love. We even bought her everything she needed to switch from Western to English as this is what Roy was used to. This site is awesome for getting horses to people who want and are willing to rescue or simply adopt for the horses best new or forever home. The horse, Lucky, is happy to know he will have food every morning and evening. His wounds are almost completely healed and the long task of putting the weight back onto his bones is progressing greatly. He has filled in. Starting to see the chest filling, hope to see neck and back soon to show filling. His coat is shiny and his teeth are white again. He's now the adult in the pasture after rescuing Roy (age eight) and our son's Beau whom we rescued at four months who's now seven years old. They are all trotting around without a care. Just enjoying being a horse.

     I want to say thank you so very much for helping me find a great home for my mother's horses! My mother passed away from cancer two weeks ago and I ended up needing to place three horses and six dogs. It is so sad what people do to the horses nowadays because of the price of hay. Rescues are over run and barely getting by. Some I contacted were even closing this summer due to financial hardship. Thank you so very much for establishing Rescue Me and maintaining it. Without you, many of these animals would be destined for horrific fates, but thanks to you, many will instead find their rightful place in this world. I also want to thank the wonderful people who turn to sites like this or rescues to save an animal rather than just buying one from a breeder or something. They are truly doing God's work! It is wonderful to know that my mother can rest in peace knowing her animals have found loving homes. I love you mom and am so grateful you raised me to see the beauty in things most people would cast off or take for granted.

     Sage is sweet and kind and is getting used to his new surroundings. His owner and a friend delivered him to me (a 500 mile round trip), and I'm very grateful that she allowed me to adopt him. He is assured a forever home and is getting to know his new buddy. I recently had a previously rescued horse pass away, and my other horse was lonely. I happened upon the Rescue Me site and found the post for Sage. I emailed Sue, talked with her at length, and drove up on a very rainy weekend to meet him. It was love at first sight. Your site made it easy, and I would recommend it to anyone wanting to rescue a horse for a lifetime companion.

     After calling and emailing about 25 charities and getting little response or only notification that they were full, Rescue Me saved me from having to make a tough decision and gave Catfish a second chance! I am ever so grateful. This website is organized, efficient, and very professional. What a wonderful way to help animals and their owners. I received about 15 responses and had Catfish in a wonderful new home three days after posting. I must mention that many of the people who responded to the post were knowledgeable horse people, which eased my mind and helped me feel comfortable with finding a new home. Good job, Jeff Gold! You have filled a void connecting well intentioned owners with serious good homes!

     I posted on Rescue Me! to find help for a young Welsh size horse that had been terribly abused. He had a halter that was so small when I got him, he had a hole in each side of his face from the metal in the halter. So sad! Anyway, through Rescue Me! he now has a wonderful home with folks that can take care of him. He was so weak when I got him that my grandson could pick him up, literally! Thank you! Bless you.

     I am a long time rescuer and animal advocate, and really appreciate the help Rescue Me! has provided. This mare 'Whisper' came to me as a weanling, sick, under fed and scared. I doctored and babied her, and tried working with her, however time, money, my age and circumstances kept me from working with her as she needed. I am so thankful a mother and her daughter who have horse experience visited her and fell in love with her. She will be going to a new home soon, and hopefully will end up being a wonderful loving riding horse with the chance to be all she can be and more. Thank you, Rescue Me!

     I found my new horse Pend Oreille through Rescue Me! I had lost a mare to colic on September 6th, and because I was so impressed with a friend's OTTB horse, I searched for a thoroughbred and to my surprise found Pend was a half brother to my friend's mare. I had no intention of getting another horse so soon after losing my mare but sometimes it just works out. I met Pend at Fallen Horses Rescue and adopted him on October 12. I love my new horse and hope for many healthy, happy years with him!

     Wow!! I cannot begin to explain how great Rescue Me is!!! My Mom passed away last year and her mare, that she had had for fourteen years, Shena, is 26 years old. Dad also had a horse that he could no longer ride due to health issues, and also he was not really wanting to ride alone. These two horses were such a part of our family that we really did not want to give them up, unless the absolute perfect home came along. Well, within eight hours of putting Shena on the Rescue Me! site, I had several responses, all of whom seemed good. But we found the perfect home for our old girl, as well as my Dad's girl Sierra! They are together, and sooooooo happy!! Thank You to Jeff Gold for his website, it was truly a Godsend for us!! I will tell everyone about this website, it works, and fast! Thanks again.

     Tucker had a tough life from the get-go. When I first saw him he was skinny, scared and dull eyed. After many conversations of faith and compassion his owner finally allowed nine of her eleven horse to be brought to my farm to be adopted out. Thank you, Jeff Gold and Rescue Me!, for giving this gentle gelding the loving appropriate home every horse deserves. On his first day out they asked him to jump a two foot rail on a whim. He had never jumped. He soared over it with perfect form. Who knew? So touching that a scared little red horse would put aside his neglected beginnings and trust so completely.

I still have three here, but they are spoken for. The one blind colt I mentioned in my posting has a nice forever home at Happy Haven Farm & Sanctuary in Byers, Colorado. He will spend his life helping traumatized children regain themselves through therapeutic riding. Thanks for being there for me and for the horses!

I am happy to say they both found a new home together, which is more than I had hoped for. Ashley came out, road Jett, and loved her. Her brother saw Apache and fell in love, too. Both horses will be leaving in a week or two, and as sad as I am of seeing them go, at least someone will ride and appreciate them more than I am physically able to.

     After many inquires... I finally found the perfect family for Rusty, and his new home is only 30 minutes from my house. I was really picky about who I would let Rusty go to as I knew what an exceptional boy he was, and letting him go was only out of financial necessity, not personal desire. This family has lots of acreage, nice barn and have already begun training Rusty. They were thoughtful and kind enough to call me and let me know how and what was happening with Rusty, his quick adjustment and to invite me to visit anytime. A huge Blessing for both Rusty and me.

He is a wonderful horse that deserves a lot of attention and is sure to get it at his new home. I was very glad to be able to place him with the help of Rescue Me!

     Rosie was adopted within a week of posting on Rescue Me. I am so happy to find her a home. She had developed behavioral problems and I could not keep her. I hope she will do better in her new home.

     I posted my horse Bree on Rescue Me! and within a few days I got a email from a lady named Jan. Bree is heading to Indiana where she will be trained and loved by Jan and her family. Thank You Rescue Me!! If you have a pet that you have to place in a new home I would truly recommend Rescue Me. I got a fast response and a forever good home for my horse Bree.

     I am ever so grateful. I acquired two horses that were locked in a barn for five days with no food or water or lights. One of the horses was 31 years old and very frail and with her daughter 12. They had never been separated. I did the best I could with them but could not imagine finding them a home and after 4 months knew I had to put them up for adoption. I also have two other horses that were rescued. I received a lot of calls but, at first, no one wanted the older mother horse. Well we received an email from a woman who was looking for these two well deserving horses. She insisted on taking them together, fell in love with them from first sight. Thank you so much for providing the means of communication for these animals. We delivered them to their new farm yesterday.

     I'm so glad to have this page to post our wonderful rescue horses. In the last year we have found wonderful new homes for 10 horses over this site. Please keep up the good work, you make a big impact for our rescues every day. We just adopted Little John, Lady and Blitz out thanks to you. They have been at the rescue since April and have recovered from undernourishment and abuse. Thank you again and God bless, sincerely Lynda Koch, Golden Triangle Horse Rescue

     Dear Jeff~ I was overwhelmed by all the responses I received on Immotion, it was quite a long list. After the first one fell through, it only took 2 days and he now has a new, wonderful home! I am thrilled for him, he is a wonderful stallion, and the spitting image of Imtarriff, his sire, who has passed on. Thank you SO much for all of your help with this site. I am still on crutches, and unable to work, but as soon as I can, I will send you some money to help with your organization, IT'S AWESOME!! Sincerely, Renee

     Dear Jeff, Thank you so much, I had found myself in a situation where I needed to find loving homes for my animals and was scared to post them only to have the wrong people inquire, however, I had such wonderful people asking about my Danny and approx 2 weeks later he has finally found a loving home where he will get the care/love he deserves. I am so greatful for your site, this is such a stressful thing to have to go through, to give up part of your family but this site relieved a bit of the stress for me by meeting such sincere people, thank you again!

     I cannot believe how this website helped me. My husband hurt his back a few weeks ago and is bedridden. I also take care of my 92 year old mother in our home. Trying to do my husband's work and taking care of Mom made me need to cut back on barn chores. I posted Rip, our rescued haflinger and he was adopted within two days!!! That is incredible! And, the people that are adopting him are wonderful! They have a wonderful place and are driving all the way from central Michigan to pick him up from us and we live in Ohio almost to the Pennsylvania border. I did not have him advertised anywhere else as I did not want Amish to take him again and that they are prevalent in our area.

     Dear Jeff and Rescue Me! members, We are deeply grateful to let you know that a wonderful couple, Linda and John, have adopted Sunny and she now has a beautiful and loving home with a giant pasture of her very own that John fenced just for her. Some people warned me about listing a horse for adoption on the web, but we could not find anyone to help trying to do it on our own, so we gave Rescue Me! a try. We truly could not have asked for a better home for her, nor better people to care for her and enjoy her companionship. When Linda came to visit Sunny and my Mom, Sunny came right up to her and it was clear that they liked each other from the start. The kids rode her around and were very friendly with her. When we moved her, she marched out into her new pasture, turned her head around and gave us a look as if to say 'Yes, this is awesome'. We are most thankful for her new family, and your site which helped bring them together. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

     I posted my horse Shadow on 4 other sites starting 2 weeks ago. Well I posted Shadow on Rescue Me on Tuesday July 17th & had so many so many legit and serious inquires it was overwhelming. Shadow was adopted! She went to her new home last night, Sat July 21st. My main concern was that she would have a forever home where she will be spoiled and loved and now my concerns are satisfied. She has 3 new horse friends lots of acreage with pasture & shade as well as stall she can go in and out as she pleases. A nice retired couple with a sweet, very well mannered nephew that is so excited to have her in their family now. Thank you to the family and to Rescue Me. I have referred this website to everyone at my barn. Good Luck Shadow! I will always love you and I'm going to miss you terribly but you are now going to have the attention again that I couldn't provide anymore, you will be missed...

     Wahoo!!! Majestic Kiss was adopted this weekend! He met Mimi last weekend and the two had an instant bond. Fast forward a week and he and Mimi are reunited and ready to hit the trails together. Congrats Mimi! As you know, you've got an amazing horse! Mimi and Majestic took a trial trail ride last week and both enjoyed each other's company. So much so that when they were done, he hung around Mimi and put his head on her shoulder. Lots of happy new adventures for these two!

     In January 2011, we accepted a 7 year old TB mare with an injured knee she was no longer able to race. She earned several thousand dollars total between the different owners that have owned her over her racing career. By the time we were called out to load 'Dottie' (nickname we gave her) up in our trailer and bring her home; she was significantly underweight and suffering from rain rot. None of the things she dealt with altered her gentle, loving personality. We spent the next twelve months putting weight back on her, providing vet care and giving her a lot of TLC. Many sights and sounds were new to her, such as; barb wire and night time sounds in the woods. Our overly brave gelding made a positive impact, because she copied his 'no-fear' reactions to everything. Approximately 14 months after she first arrived, our oldest daughter put a rope around her nose and rode her bare-back. Dottie responded perfectly. We would have been impressed if she would have had a bridle, but without a bridle!?! We were blown away! In May 2012, she was adopted by a wonderful family, which included a fifteen year old girl 'looking for a best friend.' Although it was heart breaking to see Dottie leave the gelding she'd grown attached to...... It's a happy ending because she now has a forever home that will love her, feed her, and spend time with her each day one on one. She also has two other horses to bond with. Many thanks to Rescue Me! for being the reason Dottie found such a perfect home. I also want to thank the people who emailed me.
