"Had it not been for them saving him, and Darci rushing to New Jersey, I would never have had the pleasure of meeting the dog version of myself. So for that, I owe Darci and Melissa everything for bringing him to me."
"That dog had been adopted but she told me she'd be happy to find me the perfect fit. I'm not being cute when I say she is a matchmaker — she truly is. She sent me photos of two dogs she thought might be a good fit and that's when I laid eyes on Moby. It was love."
“Fostering him has proved to me that I am stronger and more resilient than I give myself credit for; even when I so often wish I didn’t have to be. He has reminded me that I am capable of doing difficult things, even in the face of adversity...”
“Melissa took action and was en route to save our dog before a huge thunderstorm hit that night in Texas. The whole time she texted me photos of our dog and updated me. I felt that night that there was truly a guardian angel saving our dog.”
"Aggie arrived safe and sound a week before Christmas — best present ever. I think it was love at first sight for him, just like it was for me. I included our first picture together. I had just told him we were going home — to his forever home — and he kissed me... multiple times."
"Now almost two years later, I can't imagine what life was like BF (before Finnegan). He is my best friend, the love of my life, the apple of my eye. He's my little shadow (although he'd probably say the same about me)."
“So I sent the picture to my husband... he didn’t even ask any questions, he said that’s our baby when do we get him? But... Texas... Bill says well we can drive there right? We live in upstate New York... so ummm no?”
"I can’t say enough about what these families do to give these dogs a good start. I can’t imagine opening my home and loving a dog and then having the strength to let them go. But somehow, thankfully, they do it over and over again."
"Princess Annabelle will always have a place in my heart and letting her go made it possible for me to help save another life pulled from a shelter. Fostering has opened a part of my soul that I never knew existed and I am a better person for it."
“The day June left with Greg via Rescue Road Trips, Melissa texted me and told me that a piece of her heart had left on that truck. There are no words that can describe the love and compassion Melissa has for the animals she fosters and for the work that she does.”
“We already had a dog that we got from a Breeder. I didn’t know at the time how important it is to rescue. My best friend is a big advocate of rescue and she convinced us that if we looked hard enough we could find what we were looking for in a rescue.”
“After talking with Melissa a few times and feeling like she really understood who we were and what we wanted, I asked her to pick or find a dog for us. She told me that she thought Calvin (formerly Lego) would be great for us.”
"Gryffindog has changed my life. He is the reason I am excited to get home after class and is the best study buddy. peacelovedogs is a trustworthy, transparent rescue that made out-of-state adoption possible (and easy!) for me."
"Echo arrived on a cold rainy April morning via Greg with Rescue Road Trips. We brought him home and he immediately made friends with our dog, Luna. Fast forward to about a month later and we were a complete foster failure and adopted him!"
“I had a little pug that was 12 years old and became very ill. Unfortunately, I had to put him down and was heartbroken. I love dogs and missed my little buddy and have so much love to give so I decided to adopt a rescue rather than purchase from a breeder.”
"Parker had been at peacelovedogs for 9 months, because he is "just a Poodle" and everyone wanted a Doodle, which is normally some kind of dog breed mixed with a poodle. Well, "just a Poodle" was perfect for us!"
"We couldn't be more grateful to Melissa, Cash, and everyone involved in peacelovedogs. Opal is everything we had hoped for and more! Despite the neglect she suffered in her previous life she is the sweetest girl, good with kids, and a kiss monster!"
