Having met Raizza has been a blessing, Raizza rescued who today is my reason for living, Nena. Through Resqme I met Nena and fell in love with her. Raizza after evaluating us as a family and complying with all their rules so that the rescued never return to the street, she gave me Nena for adoption. Nena is my baby, I love her with my soul. I don't know what my life would be without her. thanks Raizza and Resqme for giving me the opportunity. You are the best!

Riasa and her team are amazing. She has such a huge heart and is a voice for the voiceless. She takes such awesome care for the pups in her charge and would do ANYTHING for them. Sunny is my ray of sunshine and I am deeply grateful to Resqme for putting us together.❤️

ResQme - Raisa, was determined to find us our perfect fur baby after our first adoption did not work out. Because she already had visited us and saw us interact with a possible adoption she decided Bella was perfect for us - and drove her to us in North Carolina!!!! To say that she is an angel is not an overstatement...and I’m talking about both Bella AND Raisa!!! I have never met a more dedicated lover of dogs who’s life mission is to rescue and find the right home for each and every dog in need. We love Bella and love Raisa and feel so lucky to have them both in our lives.

My name is Ana, I am the mom of Dino the handsome dog from the picture. I have no words to say how grateful I am to have found this great organization of Resqme to adopt my little baby. Raizza, Brittany, and her team are great and sooo lovely. They are 24/7 there for any concern you have for your dog and help you without hesitation. Throughout the first months, they called me all the time to make sure how we were doing with him. :)

We love our rescue mutt! She was dumped by her previous owners and was picked up and shown kindness and love from Rescue Me. This restored her faith and trust in humans. She is a great addition to our family and we love her❤️

We found our precious Lupita, a Terrier and Dachshund mix, on the ResQme website. We drove all the way from St Petersburg to Miami to meet her. When we saw Lupita in person, we fell in love with her right away. Rayssa, the rescuer, is the most loving and caring person to all the dogs she has under her roof. When she handed Lupita to us a week later, she even cried as she said good-bye. What an incredible woman! She has a huge heart.

First of all I want to say RAIZA DOESNT CARE ABOUT THE DOGS. If she’s overwhelmed she will make sure you know it and treat you like shxt. We tried calling her multiple times about this dog we found and after the 4th attempt contacting her she literally said “take him to the shelter and they’ll give you a date to euthanize him.” SHE IS A HORRIBLE HUMAN. DOESNT CARE ABOUT THE DOGS AT ALL JUST HER REPUTATION.

Im the proud mom of three rescue pups, well, as they say...they actually rescued me. Resqme’s dedicated mission to save lives and find a loving home to sweet angels has no comparison. They care and love each dog, cat even goats they take in and minutiously review the adoptees to guarantee a match between human and pet. I totally trust ResQme and thank them for all they do. It’s a labor of love. Bless you

This is my Dog Titi! , she came into my life when i most needed a friend. She sleeps with me, we go on walks, we play, we are best friends!! She is the sweetest doggy i have ever met, she loves cuddles and kisses. Resqme is hands down THE best nonprofit organization. What they do for their dogs is beyond this world and they give them SUCH a good and happy life until someone is able to adopt them. They are always in contact and love to be in touch with every family that has adopted a puppy. I love ResQme. Thank you for showing doggies that they are not disposable, you are a true hero.

I adopted one of their pups and had the pleasure to foster her mom too. I love Raizza and her dedication. She is one of the only rescues I know that also takes in dogs no one wants because it’s hard to find a home. Keep up your amazing work. You are the best, love Mirell, Nathaniel and Luci ❤️

ResQme rescued Molly, who was pregnant and dumped in the Redlands, Miami. I was able to adopt one of the puppies, the runt named flash (Gordon). Flash is the best thing to happen to me and my husband. He was loved and nurtured at ResQme and now we will do the same for him, because he is a miracle! Without these ladies dedication and devotion, flash and his 6 siblings would not be alive today. Their mom Molly has become a ResQme mascot! ResQme needs our support and devotion to be able to continuing their mission. Please help them grow and prosper!

Resqme is a wonderful organization. We rescued our lab mix Nala from them and from day one Raixa was amazing in making sure Nala was happy and felt safe with us and her new sibling Whiskey (Shitzu) . See pic below. Raixa and her group of volunteers do an amazing job in taking in the animals and making sure they are well taken care of, healthy,feel safe, and are adopted by families that will give them a furever home. I thank Resqme for allowing us to adopt Nala and making her a part of our family. She was heaven sent to us and is now the princess of our home. ❤️

Raisa has been the best. Brownie's Mom was rescued from the Everglades and we got to have one of the puppies. She came to my home and made sure he would be in the best situation possible...loves her pups. I have had him a little over 1 year and he has been a wonder to love and observe. Eventually, I will adopt another from her and ResQme-A Homeless Dog MIssion. They are a fabulous organization!
