     Thanks so much for Rescue Me! I was contacted by at least five people who wanted to adopt the Akita that I posted. Of the two I chose to follow-up with, one turned out to be the perfect fit for her! She is now in a good home! I highly recommend this website.

     Hi Jeff, Keiko got adopted to a nice loving owner who has a companion name Rio. Rio and Keiko get along great. He now lives in the mountains in Colorado. He has plenty of room to roam outside and explore. I couldn't be happier for him. He has a amazing new family, and because of Rescue Me!, he now has a wonderful home. This was my last resort with finding the right agency, rescue places, or sanctuary that specialized in this breed. The minute I put up his information, I got a response from someone who inquired about him. I would highly recommend this site! Keiko is now in a wonderful, amazing home with an amazing owner who takes excellent care of him, and will love him just as much as I do. Thanks to this organization!

     Hi Jeff, Thank you so much for the opportunity to use Rescue Me! to find a home for my dog. She has been adopted and I think she is going to be very happy with her new family. Your website was very easy to use and navigate, thank you for that. If ever I am in need of posting another animal I won't hesitate to come back, or if I'm looking to adopt I will be back. Thank you again, Patricia

     My Akita was adopted yesterday! She was placed in a home with special needs children, and will be trained as a service dog. Your website is a lifesaver, easy to use and gets a lot of visitors. I recommend it to anyone.

     I absolutely love the Rescue Me! website. My rescue dog Ginger found her forever home tonight. She was a beautiful red Akita mix. She happily went home with a young couple who were looking for a companion for their German Shepherd puppy. Although they had looked at other dogs, their Shepherd really responded to Ginger and they were instant friends. Ginger was very happy and exited and hopped right in the car with them when it was time to go. This was her signal to me that she had finally found her forever home. Thank you, Rescue Me!, I will be back with my next rescue...

     My Akita, Kaedo, has found a home. A family from 3 hours away found him on Rescue Me! after he had been posted for less than 2 weeks. She is a Vet Tech and has also had an Akita before. She plans on using him as a therapy dog. He found the best home possible. He will be loved and get all the attention he needs. Thank you for helping me find him a good home!

     I love this website! I was so surprised how quickly word got out to several different states, with individuals who were just looking for the perfect companion, or extra addition to a loving family. The decision to put this little sweetheart up for adoption was tough enough. The hard part was finding the right owners, having faith that he will be loved all his life, and cared for. I am eternally grateful for this website's service. Little, young puppy Kronos the Akita was successfully rescued by us, and adopted by an individual looking for a life long companion!

     Blackjack has a new, forever home with an amazing man who will love him and baby him for the rest of his life. James emailed and asked me about Blackjack, when I called him and he said that he needed 'a new best friend' because his Akita of 19 years had passed away, I knew we had found the perfect person for Blackjack. Blackjack and James will be forever best friends!

     Thanks for your help! ...a nice family called me a day before I was to hand Hachi over to a local rescue agent. This family was so nice and loving. They took the time to get to know him and ask all of the right questions and were even willing to allow him to have his beloved stuffed animals that he has slept with since he was a small puppy!!

     Dear Jeff, Asia's story starts very sadly and has ended in such great success.... My husband was at a shelter when Asia was brought it... she had been tied to a tree and her family had moved away and left her, a neighbor noticed her, realized she had been abandoned and brought her in. Being she did not respond well to other animals. Euthanization was their ONLY option so he brought her home. As she matured she has become very agitated by neighboring animals and on 2 occasions actually attacked the neighbor's dog going through a 6 ft privacy fence leaving us with 2 options find a home that addressed Asia's needs or have her put down. By this time she has been a part of our family for 3 years so we were in heartbreaking distress over the situation. I listed Asia and waited having to keep her confined to our garage or tied other than walks. I was so afraid of scams and have seen many reports on animal testing and fighting. I talked to several people and by God's grace Asia has found her new family and a home that understands her needs. Thank you for this beautiful sight. I tell everyone I know to check out your site for adoptions and pray you continue to be successful.

     We did not actually use anyone found on this site but we did get feedback. I was very surprised when we got mail from people in Springfield Missouri, wanting to drive 14 hours to get our puppy doggy. We are up on Lake Erie just east of Cleveland Ohio. Its wonderful you have put a great site together for us animal lovers to find good homes for good animals. Thank you very much.

     Dear Jeff, I would like to thank you for this beautiful website. I tried flyers I put them in the news paper I even asked friends & family to help if they even knew anyone & nothing. I came across your website looking for shelters for my babies because 4 Akitas was just too many for my house. But the shelter was not the option I wanted to go. I saw RESCUE ME & thought to give it a try. To my surprise I was able to find both Nena & Gunner a great home. They are with beautiful people that spoiled them before they even arrived to their new home. (toys, bed, collars, a throw cover for in the car) you name it they went & got it. It is such a blessing to find great people to take in my babies. The 1st day I put them up on RESCUE ME it was pretty late by the time I woke up in the morning I had so many people emailing me. It was so hard everyone seem really good. Within a week and a half of posting they found their new home. They left yesterday 10-08-12. Now they have the space to run around & play they were adopted together. I could not ask for better people for my babies. Thank You Gerard Dello & your Wife for the room in your hearts for my special babies & Thank You again Jeff for your website. Love Demary in PA PS will be making a donation soon.

Sender: Riki-Lynn Goll     Date: September 4, 2012 _
     Hi! My name is Riki and we got our Akita at just 9 weeks! We sadly, were not a good fit for an Akita! Our dog, Arkouda, was extremely smart, loyal, happy, and LOVING. He just wasn't fond of children other than our own (and by children I mean under the age of 12ish) Our house is very busy and we have MANY children in and out... so we had to put him up for adoption! We were very weary of scams though, because many people want these dogs to fight them. So, I just asked a lot of questions... and really weeded people out, through what information they were willing to give. I wanted Veterinarian references and pictures of the home... meet the people... etc.... Well 6 months later... we found a home! And it is the best fit! The people who adopted him have kept in touch are willing to keep me informed! They've even emailed pictures of them together! My dog (well THEIR dog) seems happier than he's ever been! He lives on a ranch, where someone always is... there is a river, land, and friends! Thank you to the Akita Rescue site for all of your help!

     Titus was rescued by a wonderful family. He now goes for walks twice a day, has new friends (cats) and is spoiled and loved by his new owners. I know he is happy and it helps not to miss him as much knowing he is loved and appreciated by his new family. THANK YOU RESCUE ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

     My Akita was adopted less than one week after I posted her on Rescue Me! In addition, the person who adopted her is very knowledgable about the breed (she's had three previously), so I am extremely grateful that Maya is going to a good home.

     Anu did find a new home... I did receive a lot of inquiries for her and I'm happy about that because she is a really sweet and intelligent dog. I still regret having to give her up but unfortunately, I could not move with her as they do not allow dogs from America to be imported to Jamaica. Keep doing what you do!! Thanks, M. David

     Jeff- Hiro was adopted by a WONDERFUL older gentleman on a farm that had lost his own Akita to diabetes last March. You wouldn't believe (or maybe you would) what an incredible blessing this has been for EVERYONE. The gentleman had been on numerous sites trying to find the perfect Akita for him but was unable to find one due to a mixture of personality differences and being unable to pay the very high prices for a better bred Akita (Hiro is AKC, but I asked for absolutely NO rehoming fee in exchange for my being able to strictly interview potentials). I refused several interested parties but when Hiro and I met him at his farm I instantly knew 'this was it.' It has been almost a week now and I cried when I learned today how great Hiro's day-to-day is now compared to before. I'm a single full time student that ended up recently needing to get two jobs to make ends meet, so he was constantly cooped up in the house, alone. Now he is on a farm with cows, llamas, another dog, and an owner that is almost always home and who truly loved Hiro from the moment they met. This site has been a true answer to my AND that gentleman's prayers. He held out for the perfect Akita for him, and I held out for the perfect owner for Hiro, and RescueMe! made it so we found each other. Thank you thank you. I'll be setting up a monthly contribution for a year tonight to help make sure this wonderful service keeps going. -Samantha Tracy

     Max the Akita found his forever home! Thank you all SO MUCH for circulating Max's story and trying to help with his cause! Thank you to those of you who donated toward his care. Thank you for your prayers and kind words and kind thoughts. Max has gone to live with a couple named Mike and Gayla. He is an American Airlines pilot and she is a retired flight attendant.

     Hi Jeff (Rescue Me), Yes my Akita was adopted by a WONDERFUL loving family that if it wasn't for the site I wouldn't had found them. I wanted him to go to a loving family that he was coming from & I truly believe I found them, or maybe I should say they found us. I had a number of responses & they were all very nice & supportive people. This wasn't an easy decision for me giving up my companion of 3 years but everyone that utilized this site were all very friendly. Thank You
