Rescueme is a Very damaging organization to all the real rescues and animals. The stuff must be fired right away. Jeff Gold is a nonexistent person or totally indifferent to this. No use to talk to R..a so called 'customer service director' with 0 in knowledge, 0 in intelligence, 0 in respect or logic. No response or explanation can help, because she just does not understand anything. A simple complaint from a not approved adopter, who wanted to get a dog for free and wanted to do some damage to the rescue was supported by this ''so called director'. She wrote: "They seems as a legitimate rescue, but I will take them down anyway!!" She took down 2 rescues. Law suite is crying for this shameful 'director' and this whole organization. And that is not all...

Hi I was trying to adopt a dog from Rescueme.org and they don’t even so much as give you an answer or even a response to MY MANY EMAILS AND MANY PHONE CALL MESSAGES I HAVE LEFT. I FEEL they are a scam and not legit for sure.

I contacted (via phone and email) the Glendale, AZ location re: a Senior Female Cat that was posted about being Euthanized soon if she didn’t get a home.
They didn’t answer their phone (I left a message). The only response I received by email said I’d have a better chance of getting a response if I chose more than one animal.

They are also on Facebook but have their account set up so you can’t post a public message. When I sent them a message via Messenger I got a response that I needed to send a message to www.RescueMe.Org.

Tried doing that also and Internet says invalid email address and it wouldn’t send. I’ve got screenshots on my phone for proof.

RescueMe prohibited real rescue animal organizations with real pets! Our rescue saved hundreds dogs and got notification that our account has been closed, but that’s ok, we will continue our mission without this weird place.

Seems like a terrible organization with scammers trying to get you to deposit a “reservation fee” without delivering specifics about the dog. I am interested in a pup and contacted them via the form on rescueme.org. I get an email back in confusing broken English from whomever listed the pup on the site. I don’t think the 3 month old pup listed is even real at this point. Very leery about this referral adoption service. And shame on you for not vetting those that subscribe to your service and profiting from it.

Jeff Gold, the founder of Rescueme.org, should be ASHAMED of himself and this despicable animal clearinghouse that he mildly disguises as a charitable venture on his part.

There is absolutely no sort of vetting process that anyone goes through in order to put up an animal for "rescue" on this site.

As other people have mentioned the descriptions are often extremely vague not only of the dog but also of what they are looking for in a potential adopters.

And the sheer number of times I have not received any sort of communication back after numerous emails is simply mind-boggling.

This site does NOT seem to help animals in need but may help those trying to "get rid" of unwanted or useless (to them) pets.

I've looked everywhere to try and find a way to contact any sort of administrator for this site and have not been able to find that information. This should be readily available as it is a 501(c)(3) and receives grant money to fund the site.

Rescueme.org is a sham!

They also send out requests for donations on every holiday and whenever there is any kind of natural disaster (anywhere on earth). They state that they "fund rescue efforts" for dogs, cats and other animals ". How can one check on this? If they are taking donations that people think are going to legitimate rescue efforts, that is totally wrong.

This site had a post of a cockatoo that was about to be euthanized if a home wasn’t found but couldn’t get any response to my emails. Now that I’ve seen these posts I’m not surprised. I’m just hopeful the poor bird isn’t legitimate and doesn’t die because of “RescueMe.”

Rescueme.org is a shady site. I found a Malinois dog in Glendale Arizona on the site owned by Gina Bowles of Working Dogs Rescue (also a shady organization). The dog had been on the site 2 weeks. I finally had a meet and greet with the dog at the Glendale location. There were at least a dozen other dogs on site. The dog I was meeting was extremely emaciated, but I fell in love. I asked if other people were looking at him and was told 4 were. I contacted Gina when I got home, expressed my concerns about his health and asked for an application to adopt. This was a Friday. After two more email exchanges and promises to send me the application, by Tuesday still nothing. I emailed Gina AGAIN on Tuesday morning and asked point blank if the dog had already been adopted. She finally admitted the dog had been adopted out the day I went at saw him. She alleged that 3 other people had seen him that day and one guy was really interested and they did the home visit that day and have him the dog. That's such bullshit, I didn't leave the home until 3 pm. The girl I talked to looked like a meth head and the home was sketchy as well. Beware of Rescueme.orf and Working Dogs Rescue, they take people's money claiming to be a charity, I haven't verified if they are a legit 501(c)3 yet. And they take all the high profile dogs from public shelters before people can adopt them for a reasonable fee and then offer them up for $450 average.

I’ve been trying to adopt a dog found dumped in Chicago. I have sent emails and finally found someone with the phone number of the owner. He finally picked up the phone as I went down the list of numbers given to me. He gave me another number and I still have no replies and now a broken heart. This dog was to become my ADA service dog to help me with 51 years of Type1 Diabetes, balance issues and seizures. It would have been nice to save her while helping me.
Extremely disappointed!

Don't try to adopt from this organization. They posted a fake picture of a dog and then sent me an "application" asking me for all kinds of personal information, like my DOB and driver's license number. Then they never got back to me about the supposed dog. When I complained, the contact person sent me a text in which she never apologized for the run-around, and made unhinged comments about being some kind of saint who was too busy to contact me because she was "holding dying puppies" in her arms. I am still wondering if I am going to have to contact the Attorney General to investigate these people.

Tried to foster a dog through rescueme, met him and told the foster we needed to sleep on it due to a heart condition. We were told they would let us have first choice before accepting another application and would contact us if another application was submitted. We contacted them less than 48 hours later and said we did want the dog but would like our vet to check him out first. Within an hour his profile was pulled and several hours later told us they decided to give him to someone else.

I inquired about a puppy and kept getting put off about arranging a meet and greet. Everything seemed to be going well - we tried to make arrangements, the foster was exited for us to meet the pup, I told her all about us, etc. After two and a half weeks of communicating with the foster, I was abruptly told that the dog was “no longer available for adoption” as the foster decided to “hang onto him” and “I’m sorry.” Sorry? We were completely heartbroken and so excited to have this pup be a part of our family. There was no good explanation or anything. I’ll never inquire about a dog through this organization again.

We adopted an adorable Shih Tzu for my mom from them making it clear that we needed house broken and healthy. Neither were true once we got him home and now no one will answer calls or e-mails. Very disappointed.

We adopted a beautiful husky lab puppy from this rescue snowed thought, The puppy is now fighting for his life and is in an animal hospital . We have emailed this group numerous times to find out what is wrong with the puppy so the doctors can save his life and the only response that we have received is that it is not there problem This rescue should and will be investigated and criminal charges will be brought if warranted .My concern right now is saving the life a beautiful puppy that this rescue neglected so badly . Please do not use this rescue if you do not want your heart the the hearts of your family brokem

This organization claims that they find homes for thousands of animals, however, l send emails to many of their rescue groups that are listed with this organization and l've never received a reply.

that is because they do not work with real rescue organizations who save many pets. They took down the biggest rescues that saving hundreds animals in TX and work against of them and the animals. Real rescue organizations do not give out animals for free and do need deposits, especially when animals get transported. So called R.- customer support director is is totally useless and has to be fired. She is taking down real rescues and supports animal abusers and free animals give away.

Just found this site and my new puppy! It was easy to navigate and very helpful in finding just the right dog. I love what this site does in helping animals find a new beginning! Keep up the great work. My puppy was just as described and the kennel owner was so helpful and kind.

I found and adopted my newest dog thanks to this site -- it's well-designed, easy to use, offers alerts to be emailed to the user based on the type of animal wanted, and offers animals from all kinds of shelters as well as those from private homes needing to be rehomed (thus, avoiding the shelter experience altogether). It helps shelters reduce euthanasia rates by expanding awareness of their animals. It accepts donations to help it continue this valuable work, and the donations can be earmarked for a specific type of animal.
