     I am so happy i found Rescue Me! I found an amazing new home for my turtle. She is now with other turtles in a large pond. The person who adopted her lives a block away so we can still visit her until we move! Thank you so much!

     I adopted Olive to a wonderful woman named Linda. She has another Russian and a Sulcata. We have exchanged text and pictures, and a video! Olive looks very happy. She now has siblings and a wonderful home. I feel very blessed to have found her such an amazing home. I thank Rescue Me for this service. I think Olive would too!

     Awesome experience adopting our bearded dragon. He is fitting in very well. My boys love him and he gets attention all the time. He watches TV with my boys. It's so cute. I would recommend Rescue Me to anyone looking to adopt.

     I had been trying for days to find a place/person who could take the non-native box turtle that I rescued from the road. Only a couple hours after posting on Rescue Me, the local county conservation got back to me to request it for their children's education program. Before I could delete the post someone had already reached out via the website! Wow that was fast. I was able to get it to a good home with the conservation group so that's a happy ending but I would have been just as happy, if not happier, to find this website a week ago!

     Thanks for your service. My adult son moved, leaving his pet turtle for my wife and I to care for. He kept growing and growing, so we wanted to find him a home with a pond or bigger aquarium for him. We were able to connect with a 'Turtle Fanatic' who had another aquatic turtle in a pond she had built. We understand the turtle has adapted well to his new home and are grateful for Rescue Me for allowing us to connect to someone who can provide a good home.

     I posted my yellow foot tortoise, Squirt, on Rescue Me. I received many responses, but never felt comfortable with any of the people. Some would not answer my many questions, some had no experience with tortoises, and some were flat out rude. I finally got a response from a couple who I immediately knew would be the perfect new parents for Squirt. I even dropped a large amount of the adoption fee, gave them all of my supplies, and drove two and a half hours to transfer her to them. In the end, it cost me money instead of recouping money, but I know she is in good hands, so I feel at peace. This site is wonderful.

     I'm glad to say Sobek was adopted. A nice feature of Rescue Me is that posts are deleted after 60 days. This was useful to me because I had forgotten to delete my post once the adoption was finalized, saving everyone the trouble of barking up the wrong tree. Thanks.

     It took about a month, but Lily was rescued in part thanks to Rescue Me! I would like to thank Rescue Me and the rescuer, Dylan! Thank you so much for giving Lily a great new home! I know her life is in good hands now! Thank you Dylan!! I had no idea how I was going to find Lily a new home when I moved. Unfortunately, she could not come with me. I found the site Rescue Me, and posted before I moved. At the time of my move I had to bring Lily to one of my friends until her rescue. Fortunately, Dylan contacted me via Rescue Me! And now Lily is in a good home, and I know she will be happy!! It was easier than I could ever have imagined. Rescue Me gave me a way to let people know that there was a beautiful ball python looking for a new home! Without Rescue Me, I have no idea how things may have gone. I did not want to put this beautiful creature down, but I almost thought I had no choice. Rescue Me gave me a choice. Thanks again Rescue Me and most importantly, THANK YOU Dylan!!

     I first saw a post for two turtles on here named Nash and Stitch. They needed a new home. Our state recently banned stores from selling turtles so the owner had been having a difficult time finding someone to adopt the turtles. I was able to get in contact with her, and I went over to her house to get the turtles. I got the turtles and moved them into a much bigger tank which I am decorating for them as well. They both seem very happy. I even let them run around my place from time to time, restricted to laminate areas. They seem to enjoy it, and have actually been more entertaining than I expected. The previous owner was really nice. I'm very happy that Rescue Me exists to help rescue pets. It is sometimes hard for them to find homes. Often times, they cannot, and it does not turn out well for them, especially animals like reptiles and amphibians. I thank the previous owner as well as Rescue Me for the turtles.

     Thanks so much for helping to find our Iguana (Spike) a new home. We really appreciate what you are doing for people and their animals. So many organizations do more to harm the movement of protecting animals like PETA while your company actually helps animals and people alike. Keep up the benevolent work you are doing.

     I want to thank Rescue Me for very, very quickly finding a forever home for my beloved girls. There were several wonderful people that contacted me. The girls wound up with Larry from Critter Crusaders. I was very impressed with his knowledge, experience, and mostly his love for these special little creatures. I know they are in loving, capable, caring hands. Thank you, Jeff and Larry, for making this a virtually pain free transition.

     Rescue Me really helped me find someone I knew would care for my snake. Through various circumstances I needed to pass this snake along and asked pet store clerks and friends what I could do. After browsing the internet for some time, I finally found this place to help me in search for a new home in my area, which was perfect. Through Rescue Me, I uploaded a picture and a short description of my situation; the next morning (no more than 12 hours had passed), I was contacted through email and text from this woman in a neighboring city who sounded like an awesome fit and was more than happy to take him in and give him the nurturing he needs. Thanks for bridging this gap in my search for a new home for my ball python. Thanks again!

     I'd tried many other sites before this, including Craigslist, but none showed any results for me getting my snakes a new home that would be suitable for them. When I finally found Rescue Me and tried it, they were adopted out within a few days to someone who has decades of experience with snakes! I'm so happy they found a good home, and hopefully other people will find their pet homes too.

     My red foot male went to a reptile lover. She has a female amongst other reptiles. She is very knowledgeable about her reptiles. I had been looking for a home like hers. Tortoises live a long time and she is much younger than I am. I am pleased with the re-home thanks to Jeff Gold and Rescue Me. Adoptions are so much better from this site. The homes have all been awesome. Thank you!

     I was thrilled to find Kobe, the five-year-old red eared slider, listed on Rescue Me last month. Her caregiver and I met immediately and we placed Kobe in her new habitat two weeks ago. She is thriving! Although very shy at first, she is now 'coming out of her shell' and responding to her dinner bell with enthusiasm. Thank you for making this site available to us who prefer re-homing rescued animals to perpetuating the trade of baby exotic animals. I continue to peruse your site in search of companion females for Kobe and applaud everyone's efforts to re-home these precious animals. Keep up the good work! Lucas L

     Thanks to Rescue Me, my two yellow bellied slider turtles have found a great home with a nice young lady who I know is going to take excellent care of them. She was excited to have them and said she had been looking for them for a while, but knew they were expensive alone not to mention having to buy all their supplies. So when she found out that they came with all their current housing it just made her day. She was able to get someone with a truck to help her transfer them and bought containers for them to travel home safely. I felt happy to see her with them. Thanks again for your website. I will be donating my rehoming fee to your rescue.

     My son convinced me to get Pierre, a bearded dragon, three years ago, after him taking care of multiple kinds of pets over the years. Unfortunately, Pierre was not as lucky as most, and my son was not taking care of him with the level of stimulation/play/outside time that any pet needs. We could not find an interested friend to adopt Pierre so I posted him on Rescue Me. Within 24 hours of posting Pierre, we got a call from a reptile rescue guy who has a passion for solving these types of situations. We dropped Pierre off a couple of weeks ago, and all was well as we left him running round the lizard room interacting with other bearded dragons in Greg's care. Thanks to both Greg and to Rescue Me!

     We've had this beautiful little female turtle named Bob for about 12 - 15 years now. She has been a wonderful pet for my daughter all these years. Unfortunately, we are no longer able to keep her due to a big move coming up and my daughter joining the Air Force. We turned to Rescue Me not knowing where else to go and had several requests on her within hours. A wonderful, loving family contacted me about her and drove over an hour here to adopt her. I couldn't be more thankful the them for adopting her and I want to send out a great big THANK YOU to that fantastic family and your site for making it happen. It gives our family great peace to know she has found a new home with a loving family.

Thanks to Rescue Me, I was able to find a good home for not only the two I posted, but for more than several of our other turtles. It's hard to give up our family of turtles, but because they were getting too large for their tanks, it's reassuring to know they are going to homes with plenty of room to grow and will be so much better off.

     I love this website! It helps so many unwanted animals find homes! I can't stress enough that these animals are often given a second chance due to Rescue Me! I found my beautiful bearded dragon named Khaleesi on here. I fell in love with her! We spend so much time together and she loves all the attention along with her new home! She is a perfect match to me! She is going to have a great impact on my life. I've loved lizards before, but she really has my heart. I got my iguana (Slasher) off this site and I never thought I'd fall in love like I did, but Slasher has now passed away. His memory lives on and Khaleesi is picking up where he left off. I had a great experience getting to know Khaleesi and that wouldn't be possible without this website.

He is a great person who formally adopted a couple other animals like a 300 pound tortoise and another iguana. I miss my iguana a lot, but I know she is in great hands. She has a big tropical area with a very nice pond and waterfall and has everything she needs as well as thermostat for humidity and temperature. Thanks so much, Rescue Me.

     I was looking at the pictures of the two puppies we will be fostering, and decided to look at the reptiles. We have a bearded dragon (loved by myself and our three granddaughters), and when I saw Puff, I knew he would be just as loved. The girls were at our house when their previous family delivered him, and I didn't tell the girls he was coming. They were SO excited when they saw him. Now there are only a few fights over who gets to hold which Beardie. LOL. I want to thank the family that allowed us to adopt Puff. He is loved. PS: We also have a dog we adopted from Rescue Me.

     I can't say enough how happy I am that I was able to find a good home for my snake through Rescue Me. I posted her and, within a week, I had two interested parties. One was a young man who has had years of experience with snakes the other was a Reptile Education center. I've been looking for a home for her for two years now and have been unsuccessful in finding someone who would take her in her senior years. The young man she went to not only was prepared to care for her, but was happy to take her in her senior years and with the aggression she shows since she can't see well - she startles easily. It scared off a lot of people, but he was experienced and looking forward to spending time with her. Thank you Rescue Me for this site!

     We struggled for a long time to find the right home for our Bearded. We wanted to make sure she would find a home that would continue to care and love her as we did. After a single post it only took us a matter of days to find a great adoptive family that was close to our home. We connected and the following weekend our bearded was in a new home with young children who were excited for their new family member. What we appreciated most about the site was that all the inquiries came from people who were experienced about reptile ownership and had truly cared for them. Thanks, Rescue Me.

     We took in scar about five years ago. After loosing Anna, it became very hard for me to run the refuge center by myself. The worst part was not just my loss of her, but Scar, she really loved him and took him out everyday to hold him and you could tell she really loved her as well. His name is Scar due to the scar he has from being abused in the past and sometimes he was a bit nippy. But he really liked the young lady and her mom that came to meet him today and they him as well. He was very friendly and acted very happy, they also said they really liked him after meeting him and would be happy to give him a loving home. Which was great, my main concern was finding people would really like him and want to work with him due to his partial blindness and how he can be nippy at times. The first animal from our shelter [reptile & amphibian refuge center] to be adopted here on Rescue Me.

     I had no idea how to find a new home for our turtle. I happened to find Rescue Me. One day after posting this he was adopted!

     We made a very easy and quick connection to a young man who offered a loving home to our bearded dragon, BD Wong. After a few conversations online, it became clear that this was going to be the best possible transition for BD. He moved with his original cage and his new family seems to be in love with him. BD was always well-cared for but is now enjoying the attention and stimulation that he deserves and has apparently bonded with his new family. This was a real success story and I want to thank Rescue Me for allowing our little guy to find his new family.

     It did not take long to find my ball python a home with Rescue Me. I was worried that I would have trouble, but it was only a matter of days before a collector contacted me and drove almost an hour to pick him up. Thanks for the help, great website.

     My beardie, Mr. French, found a wonderful home with a nice couple who have many other lizards and a great social environment for him. It wouldn't have happened without this website. I can rest easy. Thank you, Rescue Me!

     Rescue Me was absolutely the best way to adopt out a dearly loved pet! It is my belief that all the creatures on the planet are threatened by our human nonsense so it is our duty to steward and protect every creature on the planet and insure the balance of nature now more than ever. Rescue Me was the answer to our prayers. Our little box turtle found a wonderful home with a really loving family and we made new friends. Of course, everyone must be discriminating in finding the best match for their pet and we did.

     What a great site! We listed our turtle and found a very good home for him. I'm confident he will enjoy his new home and receive excellent care. Thank you for the opportunity to offer my turtle on Rescue Me. Within hours, I received several inquiries and was able to place him within days!!!


Sender: Eric Kneller     Date: September 19, 2014 _
     Rescue Me helped us. Within two days of posting, I started to receive correspondence from someone in my state who turned out to be the perfect taker for our animals. He was able to take in both snakes as well as the large cage that I had built for them. I would recommend your site and service to anyone that is looking for an adopter of pets or looking to adopt themselves. Thanks again!

     So happy I found Rescue Me! We had listed our corn snake multiple times on Craigslist, and only one person showed any interest, but didn't take the snake. We found a wonderful family with Rescue Me, grandma is a vet, and the two boys are so excited to have a friendly snake. Thank you for this website!

     I had three turtles that were too large for their tank and nowhere to move them to. I also had another turtle that I rescued from a friend who captured him from a lake and then didn't want him. I was having a lot of trouble finding someone to adopt these turtles that I could not effectively care for. The very day that I posted on Rescue Me, I heard from a very nice guy who has an amazing turtle pond in his backyard. He drove a long way to pick them up, and ended up adopting all four of them! I've already received a picture of all four of the turtles enjoying the sunlight at the pond!

     When I got a new job overseas. I was very worried about finding a good home for our two Anoles, Georgie and Anatole. I am so happy I found Rescue Me! Posting information was easy and straightforward and I had lots of responses within only a few days. Last weekend, our little 'house dragons' were picked up by a nice lady and made their way to their new home. What a great service, and it's nice to see that there are many people out there who care about animals - even the 'weird' ones (animals, not people.... ;-) ).

     I have adopted two pet doves and a native king snake for our living collection. They help to educate the public on native wildlife conservation. Thanks, Rescue Me!

     All animals I adopt from Rescue Me enter into a permanent home. This site is wonderful despite the new Lacey Act Laws restricting the transporting of certain animals across state lines. We manage to find homes for so many appropriately and within the law. Great job guys and gals!!

     Adopted this guy out and love him to death. Currently building him a 75 gallon enclosure. He is so gentle and gets very excited to see me. He eats like a champ. Thanks Rescue Me.

     My two three-toed box turtles were adopted two days after I posted them on Rescue Me. Plus, I had three or four additional people who wanted them after they saw them on your site. I am so pleased. I was able to find them a great home immediately with someone who lives close by. Thank you so much for this site.

     Thank you so much. I found myself in the situation where you know something needs to be done and then asking myself 'What now?'. I was told by a coworker having two turtles that were being kept in a small container for a year. She wasn't sure what to do and was considering releasing them. I told her I would take them, but I knew I was out of my depth. I received them and started doing research. I found Rescue Me and, within 24 hours, received a response. My husband and I took a road trip south and dropped them off with a really nice gentleman that has a passion for turtles. He helped identify what type they were and said they were in good shape overall. They went from an 8x12 inch container to a home where they will have both an indoor and outdoor enclosure. Thanks to this site and the wonderful people who rescue from it.

     Rescue Me has always helped me with animals. I rescued two iguanas and the female was being mean to my male so I decided to see if this site did reptiles and to my surprise it did. I posted her a while back and I have had some posts of encouragement and one wonderful family who adopted my female and they are an absolutely wonderful experienced family. They brought her to Pet Smart to get some stuff for her before they went home, everyone was saying how beautiful she was. We exchanged numbers and emails so we can keep in touch! Thanks again!

     Placed my turtle on this website for adoption due to her size and my lack of a large sized tank she deserves and, within 24 hours, found a home for her! She is going to a turtle pond where she will have the space she needs along with many friends. :)

     A wonderful young man adopted Zoey, and the situation could not have been better for him. Nate had a true love for iguanas and knew exactly how to take care of Zoey. There is no doubt in my mind that Zoey will live out the rest of his days happy and comfortable in Nate's care, which gives me great peace of mind, given the fact that he meant so much to us. Your Rescue Me site is AWESOME!!!!!
