Adopter Reviews

We realise the importance of adopter confidence when looking to rescue a dog. So hopefully our adopter reviews from our current adopters will show how much we put into rehoming dogs from Cyprus to the UK. The main founders in the team have over 10 years experience each and have helped find loving homes for 1000s of dogs.

A brilliant rescue organisation
Dogs Name Adopted:: Mavis

I adopted Mavis, a pointer cross, in April 2021, and she'll be 2 in December. She is a total joy and I am so glad I adopted from Saving Souls. The whole experience of the process was great, right from the first time I got in touch to enquire about her - loads of communication, lots of photos and videos and lots of information and help for settling her in. The application and home check process was also really thorough and reassuring. Jan still takes the time now to check in on her and her siblings. Its a brilliant organisation and I would really recommend it if you are thinking of adopting a dog.

Thank you Rhiannon for your kind words and for opening your heart and home to Mavis xx

A heart made full
Dogs Name Adopted:: Nyx (originally Debbie)

I was looking for another puppy/dog after the sudden death of my 12 month old pup in summer of 2021. It was by chance I had stumbled across Saving Souls Rescue on Facebook. I kept seeing lots of dogs looking for homes but it wasn’t until December I saw my own puppy’s advertisement and knew that’s the one I wanted. I was nervous at first for many reasons, was the charity genuine, what if me and Nyx don’t get on (our first meet would be picking her up from the services). But, as soon as I picked her up in January I knew I had made the right decision. Everything before meeting her had gone smoothly, the communication and home inspection and then receiving the wonderful news I had been successful. Fast forward 6 months and Nyx is honestly everything I could of wanted. She’s very loyal and protective of me, we bonded so quickly to my surprise. Her recall is coming along wonderfully, she has beautiful loose lead walking and is full of character. I think she thinks she’s Bend it Like Beckham with her balls. We have slight reactivity and trust issues with new people but we’re making absolute waves. I can’t recommend Saving Souls enough, they have a lovely Facebook group of other people and their adopted furbabies. It’s wonderful to see the dogs all flourish. The other members helped my concerns and worries and my heart has honestly never been so full of love and joy. I know Nyx is certainly thankful and thriving with me and that makes us a happy household.

Thank you Joanne for your kind words and opening your heart and home to Nyx xx

Dogs Name Adopted:: Morris

I adopted morris 15 months ago. Initially we were only talking about possibly adopting a dog, then came across saving souls and spotted morris's profile. As a famiky we all completely fell in love with him. Having two children who were 11 and 7 at the time and 3 cats it seemed impossible to find somehere to adopt from. Jan was amazing along with his kennels dog valley at giving us all the information we needed and getting to know Morris before he came. I was worried intitially about how he would settle and if he and the children would get along ok. There was no need to worry we all fell in love with each other the day he came. He settled so quickley, house trained within days and has won the hearts of everyone who meets him. Wouldnt be without him now and look forward to adopting again in future.

Thank you for your kind words. And thank you so much for adopting through us and opening your hearts and home to Morris. We love helping make a family complete. xxxx

Duke my handsome boy.
Dogs Name Adopted:: Duke

I came across Saving Souls by chance online and on seeing Duke just fell in love with him straight away. Their site gives you lots of information but I was quite worried about adopting a dog from abroad. I already had a rescue dog, and I felt that there might be a problem with them not being able to meet before I took another dog into my home. Initially in the process I was able to talk to Vaso who was looking after Duke and discuss all the things that worried me, she was a great help as was Jan, also, the team member who home checked me was very helpful. I appreciated their wealth of knowledge and obvious care on making sure both dog and person who is adopting were well suited. Vaso sent me loads of videos and messages keeping me in touch with Duke, so I felt I got to know him a little whilst waiting for him to arrive. I have now had him for approximately five weeks and he is lovely, a great big hairy loving boy who has fitted in with my family so much better than I expected. The support and interest after Duke arrived has been great, they are there if you need them for anything, a great bonus I think. I have rescued dogs from various uk centres for many years now and I can say that Saving Souls is the best rescue centre I have ever dealt with. A big thank you to all the team.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write us a review and your kind words Jacqui, it means a lot to us that adopter and their dogs are happy. Thank you for adopting Duke and giving him such a loving home xxxx

Best decision made
Dogs Name Adopted:: Sotira

I can't even say how amazing the team is and I'm so thankful that I have Sotira in my life she makes my days a lot happier and she is really coming out of her shell and showing me that even though she is 9 years old she still is a puppy at heart. I wouldn't know what I'd do without her she brings me so much joy and loves to cuddle up in bed with me. Rescuing her was the best decision of my life and I would always recommend saving souls animal rescue.

Thank you so much for your kind words and for opening you hearts and home to Sotira. Thank you so much for adopting through us xxx

Great experience caring people
Dogs Name Adopted:: Sully (Rocco)

I had been looking to adopt for a while, had contacted a few organisation but had no response. I came across saving souls and I could see how much they cared for the dogs and cats. Great process very thorough which i would hope for. Great communication from start to check in after Sully arrived. Love seeing the updated photos and videos even on his journey at the airport and van. I know they all put their heart and souls into getting every animal a home.

Thank you so much for your kind words and opening your hearts and home to Sully xxxx

Thank you for Dylan
Dogs Name Adopted:: Dylan

Well Dylan adopted us just over a year ago, he is 8, nearly 9 years old now and he is a big bear of Malinois lushness who has leishmaniasis, which was a bit of a learning curve for us but with help from Vaso and Jan he has a tablet each day and a regular blood test to make sure he is well and we can’t thank you guys at saving souls enough for bringing him over to us x x x

Thank you for your kind words and for opening your hearts and home to Dylan. He had such a terrible time before he arrived with you but now he looks so healthy and happy. Thank you so much for adopting Dylan xxx

Great dog, great support from the team
Dogs Name Adopted:: Bonnie

Jan was so helpful to help us find the perfect dog for our family. We have young children and it's not always easy to find a match. Due to pre-booked family holiday we couldn't make arrangement without impacting Bonnie's arrival, Jan found a wonderful foster so our little dog could be taken care of while we were away.

Bonnie is with us now and we couldn't have found a better match. I would definitely use Savings souls rescue again if I had enough space for another dog!

Thank you again for all your work!

Thank you so much for your kind words. We are so pleased to have helped you and Bonnie find each other. Thank you for opening your hearts and home to Bonnie and adopting through us xxx
