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

I hope that the public will rally behind this amazing organization and continue to support their incredible mission of saving lives. The animals fortunate enough to be carried through those doors have the benefit of someone and an organization who will care for them until they find their forever homes.

"We love our newest addition to the family. We brought Jax (Elmer) home a while ago but just now getting around to posting. We love and adore this dog! He fits right in with our crazy family. He loves playing with the big dog Ginger, car rides, and running along the fence trying to get our neighbor’s dogs attention.

We had such a great experience adopting our 5 year old maltese mix from Saving Orphan Souls Rescue. We never felt rushed, and they answered every question we asked honestly and were very forthcoming. We were given the backstory on the dog we chose, andSOSwas so excited for us. The foster mom had tears in her eyes for this being such a great match. I highly, highly recommend Saving Orphan Souls Rescue. It was a great experience.

We adopted our sweet Lily Rose last weekend. She was a little laid back when we arrived at the foster home, but climbed up on my lap and didn’t want to leave it. Every single day she blossoms a little more. Her fun, cute personality comes out!! Enough about that part.. let me tell you about the rescue. The foster was so friendly and straightforward with us. I will forever recommend this rescue to anyone that wants a small dog. Thank you.

I am Gabi’s uncle and wanted to also post what an awesome girl she is. Saving Orphan Souls did nothing but take her back into rescue, let her regroup, showed her love and most of all she is safe and sound.

People need to take responsibility for their actions, and stop blaming others. Gabi was adopted out as a young puppy. She spent over 2 years with her family, and all they did was post how awesome she was. All of a sudden things changed and she became vicious!

If Gabi was a threat, this rescue would have never adopted her back out. They do thorough assessments of every animal, and ensure no one or no animal is ever at harm.

I call this more than a super successful re adoption - she is a total love and we thank this rescue for giving her another chance.

To the former owners, whatever happened in your home is not the fault of the rescue that is on you. Furthermore, you have right to bash this awesome entity for speaking the truth.

Gabi is happy and well loved, and that is all that matters.
