     We found Dudley a wonderful home with a family that has 40 acres for him to run. I am very grateful for this website because he went to a great home. Thanks again, Rescue Me!

     Raigan was successfully adopted into a home of Irish Setter lovers, who have rescued seven over the years. They know and understand the breed and have lots of space for him to run. He'll have a new sister too to keep him company. I had so my inquiries from the Rescue Me post on the first day I was stunned. The Irish Setter of America Foundation also called to offer help. It will be bittersweet to see him go, but I know he will be loved and a happier dog than he is now.

     After seeing the photo of Murphy and hearing his story I knew he was destined to come to Vermont and live with me and my 11 year old girl, Marli. I drove from Vermont to Missouri to rescue Marli, my third Irish Setter. She was nine months old and confined to a tiny outdoor kennel with no roof. She loves to run and has been free to do as she pleases on the 50 acres we live on. I was so excited for Murphy to arrive, I didn't sleep for two days. James and Jackie brought Murphy to Vermont to make sure this was the place best for him. We had a great visit and Murphy was excited beyond words with the green mountains. After they left me, Marli and Murphy headed into the woods. I didn't dare let him run free. I wasn't sure how far he would go. On the second day, Murphy got the lead in his mouth and with a snap of his head, he was gone. I freaked and up the mountain he went. In a panic, me and Marli took off in pursuit. Went a mile and then headed back down, lost his track so zig zagged back to the house and Murphy was hanging by the house. What a relief!! So now Murphy is free to come and go from the house anytime he wants. Me and Marley does a loop of the property every day and Murphy just disappears. He's not into staying on the trail and the terrain he blasts thru is thick brush and woods. Him and Marli are slowly becoming best friends. Had five dogs at the house over Thanksgiving and after the initial meet they all got along, sweet! Murphy is a fireball with endless energy and every day is a party for him. we had snow already and he loves playing in it, but chasing birds is all he cares about, toys are ignored. We have plenty of pheasants on the property so now I'm training him to concentrate on these. He already found the neighbor's lone chicken and killed it. I wouldn't let him have the spoils and he hasn't been back to the barn since. He wasn't happy that nearly got the chicken, she teased him with it for two days. I am so happy i was able to help James and Jackie because they were broken hearted to have to give him up. Murphy will have a wonderful life and now i have two Irish babies to play with and enjoy life.

     Miss Hanah, has been successfully adopted! Thanks to Rescue Me, she went to a home that understands Irish Setters! Thank you Tim, Debbie, and Gina.

     Our Irish Setter was adopted in one day from Rescue Me! He was a dog with some problems typical of rescues (separation anxiety, house training issues), but there was such a big response that we were able to choose from the 'applicants' and find a wonderful, permanent home for him. We're glad that Rescue Me has such a large audience and a national presence - it really made it easy to reach a lot of potential homes for him and find just the right situation.

     Clyde was adopted by a great family with three young girls, two other dogs, horses, chickens and cows. He now lives on a farm where he can run off all that energy he has. So happy for Clyde!

     I can't believe how many people contacted me. They all seemed to understand the breed very well. This dog seemed typical of the Irish Setter. They don't have an enemy, and have boundless energy. One person mentioned, If you want a watch dog, use your Irish Setter as a greeter.

     Within a few hours of posting Petals for adoption, we received three emails from interested parties. The one that stole our hearts was from Stephen and Laura. Stephen is a disabled veteran with PTSD and he wanted to adopt Petals to become his service dog. She will sleep next to his bed and go everywhere and do everything with him. He's even planning to take her to visit the elderly as a therapy dog. As painful as the decision was to give her up, we've ended up feeling that we did something that will improve her life and Stephen's. Thank you Rescue Me! Joe and Terry Mooney

     Thank you for all who responded to my post. There were over 21 loving homes that wanted to meet this little guy through Rescue Me!!! Thank you again.

     Kisses was brought in to Animal Control in Clarendon County, SC. A Second Chance Animal Shelter rescued her from euthanasia and brought her over to the Shelter. We immediately posted her on the RescueMe site. We have had very many emails regarding her from viewers of the RescueMe site - some as far away as Florida! In addition to posting her on RescueMe, we made up flyers and put them at businesses all over town. The happy ending to this story is that one of our citizens came in and said they knew Kisses. She had seen one of the flyers at a restaurant in town, so she immediately came to the Shelter. It turns out that Kisses' owner had died one year ago and was a friend of the woman who came to the Shelter. No one really knew what had happened to Kisses after her owner died. Kisses was so glad to see the lady and she was immediately taken to her new 'furever' home. What a wonderful ending to a very sad story!
