     I posted Shorty last weekend and had two calls on her. She wasn't necessarily what you call 'adoptable' because she is nine years old; however, someone saw the post and drove over an hour and a half to come get her! She's had four Schnauzers, so I knew Shorty would have a good home! It only took a week to find her a permanent home. Thank you, Rescue Me.

     What a wonderful and easy website to use! We have adopted the most beautiful and loving Schnauzer princess, Kona! She has so much love to share with her new family! As a sepsis and septic shock survivor, she is just what we needed! Thank you, Rescue Me and Holli, for making this adoption possible!

     Great web site. What a sweetheart Halle is. She has fit right in with our family of two other Schnauzers. She has better manners than them. We just wanted her to have a good home in her later years. Jeramy has been great. Thank you, Rescue Me.

     Smokey has found his 'fur-ever' home along with four other schnauzers. He acted like he was meant to be there. My heart is still broken, but I can rest easy knowing that he will be loved and taken care of. Thank you to the Rescue Me site for helping him get home.

     We had been searching for a long time to find the right fit for our family. Our prayers were answered when 'Curry' became available for adoption in our local area. He is the dog that we've been waiting for... Always greeting us with a smile, ready to play with the kids, and so well-behaved. We couldn't have asked for a better little guy. We are so thankful for Rescue Me! Our family of four has become a family of five.

     Thank you, Rescue Me! We found him! Who? The perfect dog for our family! Charlie is our first family dog and he is perfect! He is gentle, obedient, sweet, playful, and a great companion! I cannot believe that anyone would have surrendered this little angel to a local 'high' kill shelter. Thanks to Maggie, who rescued him from there just in time, nurtured him back to health, gave him much needed love and made him available through this site. We love Charlie!

     Thanks, Rescue Me! When we suddenly found ourselves with what the trainers were calling a 'Blood Feud' in our rescue pack, we were faced with the heartbreaking certainty that we were going to have to rehome one of our beloved pack members in order to keep ~all~ of them safe. I was honest in her profile about the problem that developed in our house. That worried me because I knew that was going to scare off more potential pet parents than it would attract... But I couldn't ~not~ be honest. Thankfully, her story touched the heart of another, someone who'd lost her own snuggle bug just a few weeks before. She had experience with larger, more aggressive breeds as well, so it made her the perfect solution for my somewhat aggressive girl... Plus, she wanted a cute little dog she could spoil... And Vi was more than happy to oblige her in that case. Thanks again for giving me a safe place to hunt for new parents for her. And thanks to all of the people who contacted me about her, too. I may not have responded to you personally, but please know that I read every inquiry with great care!

     This was such a wonderful experience for placing our dogs into a loving and caring home. Due to circumstances beyond my control, I could not care for these dogs that were placed here at our home due to family members that are having difficulties. I received so many inquiries that it would have very easy to pick the right fit for these dogs. I would highly recommend Rescue Me to anyone needing to place their pet in a good home.

     Sam is a great dog. I have no doubt he is bringing joy to his new family. It gave me peace of mind to have Sam go to a home where he would be loved. The family that adopted him was in contact with me for like the first five days they adopted him. When they had questions or needed advice on how to make Sam's transition easier they would contact me. That told me he had gone to a great home. That was my baby and it was hard to let him go but my son's allergies are taking a toll on him. I am so grateful that I found Rescue Me.

     Our dog was adopted by a wonderful couple. They are both animal lovers and loved Scottie from the moment they saw him. I knew it was an instant connection. I did a follow up with them, and he is very happy at his new home. Just want to say thank you to Rescue Me.

     While Hunter doesn't appear to have any Schnauzer in him, I am head over heels in love. In the end, for me it wasn't about bringing a pure bred or specific breed into my home, rather a good fit. Because I take him everywhere, I am stopped over and over again to ask me where I bought him and I am very proud to let them know that he was a rescue and that there are so many dogs out there that need forever homes. Rescue Me was awesome and so helpful. I foresee another rescue in our near future! Thank you!

     I needed to find Cody a good home. After trying to do person to person adoption and having no success, a friend of mines suggested putting Cody on the Rescue Me site. I wasn't going to do it because I felt that it too would not work, and I had so little time because my daughter is going into the hospital for a month. I need to be there for her. Also, after that she will be going to appointments almost every day to maintain her health. I just knew that Cody would get lost in the shuffle of things and suffer possible neglect. Oh no! I could not have that. I was going to find him a good and caring home! So, I posted Cody on the Rescue Me site. The next day, I got a call from a very caring and lovely lady. She wanted to have Cody. We set up a meeting. She loved Cody, and I think he felt safe with her. He went to her and let her rub his head and back. She took him home that day!! I felt so good about her, and Cody is being with loving people!

     This little guy reached out from the computer and stole our hearts. Our adopted Great Dane lived with us 11 years and died eight years ago. We had been dog-less since. Debating for two weeks since seeing this picture (delayed, because an adoption was pending), we finally took the drive and brought him home. We did our research prior to selecting the Schnauzer mix, so we knew what we were getting. The non-shedding, hypo-allergenic hair was a bonus we hoped for. He is a bit alarmed about things that 'go bump in the night', but is smart as can be and picked up on being house broken easily. With our quick training sessions, in three weeks, he will come, sit, stay, stop at the doorway and on a good day will slap me five. His energy level is perfect for us; we needed to walk more anyway. We call this silly creature Fritz. My husband and I are half in and half out of retirement, a granddaughter visits us often, and Fritz certainly fills our home with joy and laughter perfectly. His size, stamina, and sturdiness, make him a super addition, as our traveling companion too. He's a perfect fit for us, and I think we are a fit for him also. Thank you for your Rescue Me efforts.

     I found Rex on Rescue Me a month after I lost my little Mini Schnauzer, Ralph, who rescued me in March of 2014. Ralphy had Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD), and no one would rescue him because of his illness. I rescued him because of it. I was his dog human for 553 days; he was my little Journeyman. We went through many life changes together, and his loss changed me. The decision to end a dog's suffering is both difficult and brave. It is a decision that will change the way you see yourself. I was sitting at my desk last week and decided to Google 'Schnauzer Rescue'. It was then that I found Rescue Me... And Rex. I filled out the application the same day and Rex rescued me four days later. He is a blessing beyond measure and I am filled with gratitude that he and I found each other. Dogs are divine beings; we humans can learn many things about ourselves from the dogs. They are the best teachers! It is my opinion that people should stop breeding dogs until every dog who needs a home finds one. Rex is my third Schnauzer rescue. I also have my darling, Fritz, who I rescued in 2013. He is a 14 year old dog that was in and out of shelters, neglected and deserted. He was ragtag, old, scruffy and the most beautiful dog I had ever laid my eyes on. Rex has settled in. After the first 24 hours, he trusted me enough to roll over on his back and let me rub his belly. 72 hours later he was licking my face and running to greet me when I came through the door. He knows he is home, and he knows he is loved. Thank you, Jeff, for founding this wonderful organization that gives dogs a chance to rescue humans and gives humans the opportunity to see the good they have inside of them. Dog: God spelled backwards!

     When my elderly next door neighbor made the courageous and ethical decision that he could no longer care for his gravely ill wife and still meet his seven year old miniature schnauzers' needs, he asked my help in re-homing them. Because of their age and his reasonable requirement that they stay together because they are litter mates who've never been apart, I expected that finding the perfect adopter would be a challenge. And initially, it was. I volunteer as an adoption counselor at the local dog shelter and have a wide circle of dog loving friends so I immediately put out word to my network--and got zero response. So after a week or two, I went online and stumbled onto Rescue Me. Eureka! It took a few days for me to get the dogs' picture posted, but then the calls and e-mails began pouring in. And one of the first calls came from that perfect adopter: an older person who'd lost both of her beloved schnauzers recently, who was looking for an older pair, who was not only breed-knowledgeable, but who volunteered in dog rescue, AND who was already planning to travel from her home to visit a family member nearby this past weekend. Thank you, Universe! Thank you, Rescue Me! (And as a fringe benefit, I got to talk to many lovely people who will continue to look for the dog or dogs they're perfect for.)

     We posted a rescue dog on Rescue Me and received a call the very same day from the person who ended up adopting her several days later. I was amazed at this response! I appreciate your site's map that shows how many dogs of a given breed or type are available in each state; it certainly helped in this case. Also, I found the process of posting extremely user-friendly compared with others that feature adoptable pets. Three cheers for Rescue Me! I will be listing every dog I foster from now on.

     Our beloved Schnauzer, Abby, passed away unexpectedly. We were devastated to lose her. At first I couldn't even think about 'replacing' her, but as time went on, we began to really miss that bouncy, sweet, snugly personality. I found Rescue Me online and put in a request for alerts. When the alert came through for Millie, I took one look at her sweet face and thought that this might be the one for us. We went over to see her the next day, and sure enough, we fell in love and brought her home. She and our Golden Retriever took to each other instantly. She is calm, but playful, and loves to sit in my lap. After just a few days, it feels like she has been part of our family forever. Thanks so much for all you do.

     We received at least ten emails and five phone calls from people interested in adopting Heidi through Rescue Me. We were so pleased with those who were interested. We wish we could have provided for everyone, but are so happy with those who came and took our Heidi, now their Heidi, home to a quiet neighborhood and fenced yard. We moved from a quiet neighborhood to an apartment complex and the cars, constant people and many, many dogs of all sizes was just too traumatizing for our Heidi. Oftentimes she trembled going outside. We grieved over how hard it was for her. Now she has a loving couple who no doubt will spoil her and take good care of her. When they came to meet Heidi, our dog jumped up on the sofa and laid next to the husband and looked at us like 'see my new friend' She felt loved instantly. It was easier to watch her be driven away than what I thought it would be. So happy for Heidi!

     We lost our beloved schnauzer in February. He was 12 years old. We had been looking for one like him for a time, and a couple of days ago, Cooper showed up on Rescue Me, which we had been checking for some time. We called Alan Norman and discussed Cooper with him. It sounded like a good match so we said we wanted to adopt Cooper. We live about 235 miles away. We planned to drive to the Norman home on Saturday. Alan called later and suggested that we meet about 100 miles from our home, on Sunday. We met there and I got to know Alan and Cooper. Alan actually drove much further than I did to meet me, but refused to accept compensation for his drive. I am very grateful for Alan's charity. I drove home with Cooper, who slept most of the way. It took us less than ten minutes to fall hopelessly in love with Cooper. He has now sat in the laps of me, my wife, Shirley, and my son Jeffrey and being petted outrageously. Thank you so much for filling the void in our lives for the love of a special dog.

     A big thank you from Dusty and Troy (his puppy) to Rescue Me. I continually check and everyone is happy!! A dog was dropped off at my house by an evicted family. I did not have the heart to refuse it! Before we could address the issue, he got my dog pregnant. I had too many responsibilities and Dusty was a handful!! This site allowed me to not give up on him. I explained all of his needs and behavior issues. All of which previous owners of this breed are familiar with. Thank God for a family who knows this breed well! I screened potential owners well and Dusty is now blessed!! This site allows busy, responsible owners and dog lover's a very good avenue to help a temporarily homeless dog find his own LOVE again!!

     Precious was adopted and is doing just great. A caregiver asked for her as a companion for the stroke victim she cares for. He is an older, single gentleman who needed a therapy dog to encourage use of his hands again. Precious immediately took to him and would not leave his lap. Her need for affection and petting forces him to use his hands involuntarily and she is now bonded with this man. Recently, I got a call from the caregiver who told me that the gentleman went into seizures and Precious ran hysterically back and forth, howling, to alert the caregiver. The gentleman was saved. Now, our little heroine has become this man's bosom buddy for life. Thank you, Rescue Me.

We received half a dozen well qualified applicants almost immediately. She was adopted today! The other great thing about Rescue Me is that we now have some good applications that came in for Lola, which we will try to match up with some of our other rescued dogs. So everybody's a winner!

     Kingsford came to us as 'The Gentleman Stray'. We don't know how, or why, but somehow, little Kingsford he lost his way. What a little delight he is. Everyone at the Rescue quickly grew attached to his charm. After an exhaustive and unsuccessful search for his home for a little over a month with ads and postings, we felt so sad for him. We had Kingsford visit our friends at the veterinary clinic who took great care of him. We are delighted to report that he has a NEW forever home with a wonderful new best friend and two Schnauzer brothers! Kingsford is a happy, happy boy. We're not sure who's happier - his new family or him. Either way, we are delighted! Thank you Rescue Me for getting the word out about this special little boy!

     We received a call from a lady on Monday that said she had wanted a white Schnauzer for a long time. She sounded very interested in Pooh though I told her that I thought we had found him a home already. I left the post on Rescue Me because I wanted to be sure that my Stepson and Daughter In Law were going to be able to keep him. I told her this and she said, 'well please keep me in mind if you should happen to get him back or hear of another one for adoption'. It turned out that the very next day, my Stepson called and said that they could not keep him so I called Carrie back. At this time she explained that she had MS and wondered if Pooh might make a good companion for her and possibly be trained as a service dog. I told her that he was very smart and that I thought it very well possible that he could learn to help her with the things she would need. They came up on Tuesday and fell in love with Pooh took him home. I was told last night that he moved right in with their Chihuahua and has made a new friend, has also started to pick up on the fact that Carrie needs help with things at times. In fact on the way home, they stopped for a restroom break. Carrie was getting tired to the point she could not push the restroom door open and Paul said that Pooh just automatically jumped up and pushed it open with his feet for her to get through. Thank you for a great website that is very easy to use, and is a great help in placing good dogs with the people they need to be with.

     Soooo happy for our Maxxy. We posted him on Monday night and by Tuesday at noon found someone who wanted him. The man who adopted him had the same type of dog with the same NAME for 10 years and recently lost him. It was a perfect match! Max is doing great with his new owner, and we are grateful to Rescue Me for helping us find a loving home for Max.

     I knew when I saw his picture and read about him that he was meant to be my dog. The staff at the shelter were helpful and told me as much as they knew. He adapted very quickly, is fully housebroken, and knows some basic commands. He does have some health problems we are taking care of. He follows me through the house and cries if I leave. As he feels better and learns to trust us, he has become more playful and is training us to recognize when he wants out or wants to play or be fed. He is an easy to love dog, and we enjoy having him. I had been checking Schnauzer sites for several months, and he was the first one I inquired about. It makes no difference that he is a mixed breed. We got a really nice dog. He will be well cared for and cared about.

     Hi, Jeff! Another great adoption has happened thanks to the Rescue Me website!!! Three Schnauzers were owner surrendered to our rescue due to a tragic death in the family. The dogs had been in boarding at a facility, and she just released them to me yesterday. I posted the girls on here Thursday night and had a family interested in adopting two of them Friday morning. The couple drove over 100 miles to adopt them today! So in less than a month after signing up on Rescue Me, I have found homes for three dogs and have two more pending adoptions from here. Happy Tails indeed! Thanks!!! From me & the Pack @ 1 Lucky Dog Rescue, Inc. ~ Florida

     I want to thank founder Jeff Gold for this wonderful site with such easy access to list a dog for adoption. This site was easy to find while conducting a Google search for Schnauzer Rescue Groups! I had gotten a beautiful young Schnauzer out of a neglectful situation and brought her to my house in hopes of finding her a good home because her owners were not making any effort to do so, and I was fortunate enough that they gave the dog to me. The whole adoption process was easy and I got lots of great responses from the wonderful people that were very interested in little Sophie as I named her. I gave first priority to the first respondent and she allowed me to question her as well as conduct a reference check with her veterinarian. I tried my Facebook page for starters, but nobody responded to me there so I tried this site and it was amazing. I appreciate people like Jeff Gold for founding such an amazing and wonderful site to help bring people and pets together. I would recommend this site to anyone and everyone and may God Bless each and everyone that is doing even a small part to help an unwanted and neglected animal. My little rescue Sophie is now Happy and content in her new home with a loving Mom and Dad and three canine siblings. She loves her new Mom, Teresa, and her new Daddy as well.

     We have been looking for some time for a standard schnauzer. When I saw Zoey on the Rescue Me's schnauzer page on Facebook, we fell in love. My husband and I drove a round trip of 1,400 miles to drive to get Zoey. It has been a long time since we have had a puppy. She will be a year old next Thursday. It has been an adjustment for all of us, but in a week's time Zoey has made great steps. Zoey lives with two mini schnauzers. They both have accepted her very well. With a little time, patience and love, Zoey will be a great part of our family. Thank you so much for your wonderful site! Thanks, Rescue Me! Schnauzer Rescue.

     I had these beautiful girls since they were babies and fell upon financial problems. I came across Rescue Me! and I am so glad I did. There were so many wonderful people who called about my girls and I had a very hard time in making a decision. I really wanted someone who stayed home and would fuss over them and love them as much as I do. I do believe I have found that person. I met a wonderful lady who lost her husband, and these girls are a true blessing to her now. She now has two beautiful girls to play with and lift her heart. I am so blessed to have found someone that will love them as I do. Thank you to everyone who has offered to take my babies as this has been one of the hardest things to do. The Rescue Me! site has helped me in being able to make a choice for my girls. Thank you! Thank you, Jeff.

     My mother is ill and could no longer care for her Schnauzer, Winston. We tried Facebook, word of mouth, and posting on a community bulletin board. We didn't get any interest. Then, when we posted on Rescue Me!, we got five people interested in Winston. The family that ultimately adopted Winston is wonderful, with two other Schnauzers. We met at a dog park yesterday and the three dogs got along so well. It was a very difficult process, but Rescue Me! made it a little easier.

     I recently lost my sweet Jacye, a silver miniature Schnauzer, to cancer. I got her when she was eight weeks old and she would have been nine in March of 2014. Her passing left a big hole in my heart, and an emptiness in my home. I began looking for a new dog and just happened to find the Rescue Me! website. When I saw Scooter, and realized he only lived a few miles from me, I decided to contact his owner. I went to meet him and my heart was immediately captured by his sweet face and loving disposition. After praying overnight about whether I should adopt him, I had a peace about making him the new member of our family. He needed a 'furever' home and I needed a new baby to love. I went to pick him up the next day! He has fit right in and was no trouble at all to house train. He has brought such joy back into our house after losing Jacye. I am grateful for this organization and would highly recommend it to anyone who is searching for a new pet.

     We sorely miss our 13-year-old Schnauzer. We waited until we felt we were ready for another Schnauzer in a line of six previous ones. We obviously love the breed! We searched many sites and other resources, without success. Then we spotted 'Boomer' on Rescue Me! and after a few e-mails and phone calls with the owner, the adoption was completed smoothly. We now have a precious, active and loving puppy. He is adorable, with the typical Schnauzer traits, yet a personality all his own... Rescue Me! provided us with the information we needed to find and adopt this adorable little guy. Thank you, Rescue Me!, for your terrific work at finding forever homes for needy animals. We definitely recommend your services to anyone. Dale & Debbie

     Our little Nixie has found a wonderful home where she can live out her senior years in peace. She was my husband's dog, or should I say his best friend, and after he passed away she really missed his constant, peaceful companionship. Then my one year old grandson came to live with me and the chaos that came with him was too much for her. We knew we had to make a change. But at ten years old we did not want to submit her to the stress and trauma of a shelter. Rescue Me! helped us make a wonderful connection with an older gentlemen, a retired police officer who just lost his schnauzer. He was looking for that same quiet companionship. Her new owner was very pleased to learn that she loves to play ball still, so I'm sure they will get a lot of enjoyment out of each other playing catch. When we met to drop Nixie off she took to her new friend right away, and left cuddling under his arm comfortably. She knew she was going home. So thank you, Rescue Me!, for the wonderful opportunity you gave us to help find Nixie a loving home and making the transition an easy one for all!

     Dear Jeff, Reading the success stories gave me the courage to even consider giving Fritz up for adoption because my personal living situation had changed. So I put the thought out there first, then listed Fritz on your Rescue Me! website. Only one week later some distant family members of Fritz's original owner called inquiring about Fritz. They have a 9-year old schnauzer, and wanted a companion for him. They have a large fenced in yard, provide companionship most of the time (they are active retired golfers), with the golf course right next door. They are dog lovers, have good knowledge about their needs, and take them on a lot of rides around town which Fritz loves. He lives in a different state now where the climate is milder, Fritz never liked the scorching Arizona heat. The reports so far have been positive, and Fritz seems to be adjusting and settling in. I think it was a very good solution to my dilemma, even though I still cry when I call to see how he is doing.

     Chopper was only on the Rescue Me! site for a few hours when I got a text from a woman who has another Schnauzer, who wanted a companion for her other dog. This is a great site and works really well. I feel much better knowing that he is going to a home where he will be well taken care of. I feel I was his foster home in a way, and re-homed him from a place where he was really not wanted. I had him only for a week, but he was a special dog and I helped him find a special place to stay with a sunroom and fenced back yard, and a doggie door to get to it!

     We rescued Sandy from an abusive home in '08 and were patient and rehabilitated this precious schnauzer. Sandy did learn to trust again and has been a delight to us. But things change and due to my husband's health we needed to let Sandy go. I posted Sandy on Monday with Jeff at Rescue Me! On Tuesday, I received my first call from a caring man whose Mother was grieving the loss of her dog of 12+ years. Wednesday, Sandy was adopted by that extraordinary lady as a result of her son's call the day before. My sincere thanks for the part you played in helping me to find the perfect new home for Sandy. 'Rescue Me!' is a tremendous resource to help people do something emotionally difficult and achieve the desired result with ease. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!!!!!!

     I want to express my thanks to the Rescue Me! organization. I rescued an elderly schnauzer not knowing whether or not I could give her a home. In three weeks time, I received two potential replies to my post to adopt Zoey. I had the option whether I would adopt her myself, or let someone else adopt her. I was able to give her vet care and she has made a perfect fit into my home.

I posted the situation on Rescue Me! and within a week I heard form an angel who was willing to adopt him and provide the treatment that he needed.
