I adopted one of the Cheese Balls (lab/setter) back in April of 2010. The mother and her pups were rescued in Arkansas and transported to their foster home in Wisconsin. S.O.S was incredible and arranged for the transport of "Fudge" to Pennsylvania. They are a terrific organization that thoroughly follows each adoption process from beginning to end. I look forward to adopting another pup in the near future.
I have at the moment 3 dogs from SOS. SOS is in the midwest and we live on the east coast. All of the arrangements for adoption were made on line or through the telephone. Everything went very smoothly with matching dogs to our living situation and transporting them to our state. We do our best to monetarily support this organization and I hope that they will receive the donations they need to continue their wonderful work.
I have adopted 2 Irish Setters from SOS. Each time they have been kind, informative and helpful in finding the right dog for my lifestyle and needs.
I have donated to SOS for a number of years. Unfortunately, I am not able to foster or adopt. However, when my sister's setter died, I contacted SOS. Alissa was wonderful! After months of talking to my sister about her needs and the profiles of a number of dogs, an adopting was arranged. Samantha could not be more perfect for my sister if we had created her. They are truly a match made in Heaven at SOS. Reading this site over a period of years has shown me how truly remarkable these people are. Accepting the elderly and the infirm, SOS makes an incredible effort to give each the best quality of life possible. Sometimes this involves huge medical bills. Sometimes it involves hospice care. Whatever the need, SOS does its best. It is truly the" Superman" of setter rescues. Joan in California
