Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animal Protection & Welfare, Animals

Mission: Saving Orphan Souls Rescue is run by an outstanding team of volunteers, fosters and directors who take the animals best interest to heart at all times. Their love and passion for animals is heartwarming, and any animal who passes through our doors, receives exceptional medical care, socialization, unconditional love, and a warm and clean foster home to relax while they wait for their forever homes. At Saving Orphan Souls Rescue, our mission is to empower and educate our community on low cost options regarding spay/neuter/vaccines/microchip of all animals. Our goal is to work diligently to end the cycle of breeding/over population, relinquishing animals, abandonment, leaving them tethered in the back yard with no social interaction, and allowing the pets in Arizona to run free causing unending suffering. Saving Orphan Souls Rescue works in conjunction with our community to help reduce the euthanasia rate by educating the public on the utmost importance and benefits of spay/neuter clinics, along with immunization and licensing services offered by various entities throughout Maricopa County. Please send an email to: savingorphansouls@yahoo.com for further information, and help us reduce the overpopulation epidemic here in Arizona. In addition to helping the abandoned animals in our care, we try to give back to the community. Saving Orphan Souls Rescue often runs clothing and food drives for the homeless AND their pets. We collect socks, shoes, pants, shirts, etc, as well as leashes, collars, harnesses, food, treats and booties for the dogs of the homeless and the working poor. We try to involve the entire metro community, because homelessness effects us all in some way. Families who could otherwise not afford to keep their pets, are provided resources for food and low cost medical options for their furry friend.

Results: In the 4 years we have been a non profit small animal rescue, we have saved over 2,100 animals and placed them in their forever homes.

Target demographics: Displaced individuals, homeless, those in financial crisis by providing their animals with food, etc. We focus on strays, animals at the Humane Society, County Shelter, relinquished by owners, abused & injured.

Direct beneficiaries per year: 287 animals + provided food throughout the year for St. Vincent De Paul and the homeless population.

Geographic areas served: Animal Rescue - Felines and Small Dogs up to 20 lbs.

Programs: Cat & Dog Food Distribution, education on spay & neuter, along with the benefits of micro-chipping your animals.

Such a great experience in finding our new family member. This rescue is professional and very thorough in vetting adopters. We filled out pages of their matchmaking questionnaire, answered lots of questions, had a home check done, more questions before we were approved to adopt. Their process was lengthy, but I respect the fact that they just don’t give their animals to anyone putting them in harms way. Even one little sniffle, and we had to wait for the final adoption to take place as the reacue ensures our baby was totally healthy when we picked her up. I cannot say enough great things about this rescue. Thank you SOS. Sincerely Duanne Lobeck

My wife and I were so impressed with Ro from Saving Orphan Souls Rescue. Ro is an excellent advocate for the dogs and cats in her rescue. Her animals were all very well cared for and she was accommodating with her schedule throughout the process. It is easy to see that Ro truly cares for her animals and wants to find the perfect home for them. We cannot recommend enough the work Saving Orphan Souls Rescue and Ro are doing!

I adopted a 4 month old Chihuahua mix 2 years ago. She is adorable and sweet. She is very attached to me since the first day. The foster was very friendly and kind.

We took her back for the last shot three weeks after adoption and "Canelita" (that's her current name) jumped to them to kiss them. She was very happy to see them again. That means that they care and give love to the dogs they have. I am very happy that I had the chance to get her from this rescue. Thanks to all the team!!! I am very thankful!!!! :)

We adopted our little gal from Saving Orphan Souls Rescue a few months ago. She is the best addition to the family and is very well socialized. Our experience with the volunteers was wonderful, and we could see the love the volunteers have for the animals. Running a non profit shelter is hard work. However, if it wasn't for the tireless efforts of rescues such as this, many of these animals would have been euthanized. Thank you Saving Orphan Souls Rescue for giving dogs such as our little Daisy a second chance!

Hands down the most amazing experience I have had with a rescue. I found my new best friend Garth through a web search that led me to his temporary foster mom Andrea and ultimately Saving Orphan Souls Rescue. Andrea was not only incredible and kept me updated and waited for me to get settled into my brand new house, but she made sure Garth and I had everything we needed to start our new family. I would recommend this rescue to anyone looking to adopt their next best friend❤

I adopted Sassy December 2 last year I saved her but I think she saved me more. She is the best - she is service trained and enjoys helping a lady with CP. She is so smart got over her fears very fast and took to training with a passion for learning. She is a blessing to everybody she meets. I can't believe she was going to be put down at the pound this time last year. Thank you for saving her she just needed a chance.

I adopted a dog from this incredible rescue. Maggie has come to me as a rescue dog that was a stray county had picked up. Her foster home prior to my adoption of her, obviously loved her very much. The support in the first few weeks was invaluable, since she had a few trust issues. With their support and guidance, it's obvious I have a new best buddy. Please support these amazing people. If you can't adopt then donate, give, volunteer, support, and encourage others to adopt don't shop

Everyone was just great to me. I had several ideas about adopting the perfect dog for me. I wanted an adult dog. potty trained, and laid back enough to just live a quiet life as my companion. I met Eddie, my dachshund mix and didn't fell in love with him immediately. I thought about it all weekend and realized he was exactly the pooch I was hoping for. I contacted the foster, came back to meet him again, and just knew he was the one for me. We are very happy together and that wouldn't have been achieved without the team at the Saving Orphan Souls Rescue.

Recently adopted my first dog. I was a little nervous and hoping it would not be a bad decision. The description of my dog on was pretty accurate and helped let me know what I was getting into. He is great with other dogs and my kitty Fred. I have to say this was the best decision I ever made, as well as going to Saving Orphan Souls Rescue......great group of people.

Truly the best rescue I've been to in the greater Phoenix area. Every animal had a very lengthy description, which included the good, bad, and the ugly (which is greatly appreciated). This rescue knows their animals inside and out, and for that we are grateful. Our sweet Matilda is the best animal ever, and fit right into our large family.

I saw my little guy on the adoption websites under Saving Orphan Souls Rescue and knew he was perfect for me. Phoned to see if he would be available to see the following day. Boy, did I hit the jackpot !!! He is the sweetest boy that you could ever possibly asked for !!! Was asked a lot of questions to ensure I was right for him, which I found very responsible for the furbaby !!! He is and will bring much joy to our family for the rest of his fun-filled life. Had to travel almost 2 hours to go and see him, and well worth it !!! Thank Saving Orphan Souls Rescue.

The people working at this rescue are caring and professional. They go through all the paperwork with you so you understand what has been done with the animal and what still needs to be taken care of if anything. They clearly care about each of these animals and want to match them well to ensure forever homes.
