Back on my birthday in November 2017, I arrived home from work joking, "Where is my puppy?" and my 22 year old daughter later told me that it broke her heart a little bit. We had lost our 11 year old dog Sugar to cancer almost a year previously, and my daughter had been reluctant for us to bring a new dog into our home. She could see that I was really missing Sugar and wanted so much to offer a home to a new dog. So, she went searching online and found a beautiful 3 month old Kokoni puppy called Meringue under the care of June and Michael at CPH. She emailed immediately, hoping to be able to give this puppy to me as a surprise for Christmas. Of course, adoptions need the whole family to be present for the home visit, so I had to be let in on the secret. I was thrilled that it was my daughter's idea because it meant that she was finally ready, too.

Back on my birthday in November 2017, I arrived home from work joking, "Where is my puppy?" and my 22 year old daughter later told me that it broke her heart a little bit.

Of course, adoptions need the whole family to be present for the home visit, so I had to be let in on the secret. I was thrilled that it was my daughter's idea because it meant that she was finally ready, too.

The adoption process was as easy as filling out a form and having a very enjoyable (and thorough!) home visit with Natalie. Then we had a little wait of a couple of days, as we were understandably not the only family hoping to welcome such a beautiful puppy into our lives, and there were other home visits to be completed. We didn't have to wait long to find out that we had been the selected family to rehome Meringue, and even better - we could have her with us by Christmas! All that remained for us to do was send the donation and June and Michael took care of the rest. Vet visits, passport and flights were all sorted out by them while we filled our house with new beds, bowls and toys and waited to be told when to collect her from Heathrow. Collecting from the airport was as simple as just showing up, as CPH always have a representative there to do all the paperwork for you. You just turn up with a pet carrier or slip lead, open arms and open heart. The experience is shared with other adoptive families there to greet their new four legged family, and it is MAGICAL.

We renamed our puppy Juno, and she has been with us for seven months. She is an adorable, clever, affectionate, funny little clown who is so beautiful that we have people stopping us in the street or park to ask about her all the time. She has brought a light and warmth back into our home and hearts that only a dog can do. The whole experience of adopting from CPH was so much easier than I could have imagined. The care and effort they put into vetting us gave us confidence that they truly want the best for every animal that they rehome, and that we would be matched with the right dog for us. Even seven months later, June is always available to answer questions and is still so interested in following Juno's progress. I have no hesitation is saying that if you are nervous about overseas adoption, Cyprus Pride House is the place that will make it easy for you, and they do their absolute best for the animal you will welcome as your new best friend. We are forever grateful.

My daughter spotted Jasper aged 6 weeks old on June's Faceache page and desperately wanted him but at the time June was hoping to rehome him with his brother Joey.

We were not able to commit to two at the time.

As it got closer to the time that they could fly Joey was offered a furever home and Jasper was quickly snapped up too - once again my daughter was thwarted.

Flights were booked and suddenly there was a plea from June for a foster/furever home for Jasper as his offer of a permanent home had been withdrawn.

My daughter asked if she could have him (she was still living at home at the time). I did warn her that as the rescue centres in this country had said no (without visiting us they decided we were not suitable as I own a pub and we have no garden although I rent eight acres close by for my horses and chickens) June may not entertain the idea.

We explained our position to June and she told us that each adoption is looked at separately (no blanket list of rules) so we decided to complete an adoption form on the

We explained our position to June and she told us that each adoption is looked at separately (no blanket list of rules) so we decided to complete an adoption form on the Friday, home check on the Sunday (we all had to be present and meet Victoria) and Jasper arrived on the Thursday!

We are so grateful that June didn't just discount us and we even went on to foster Joey for three weeks when, due to personal circumstances, his people had to give him up. Joey now lives a two minute walk from Jasper as my daughter has now moved out to her own place.

My daughter works for us so we see Jasper most days and I now have my own Cyprus rescue, Zeus and am currently fostering another Cyprus rescue, Lucia as her mummy is fighting leukemia so may be with us for some while.

I have now done some home checks for June and was lucky enough to go and collect two puppies from Gatwick (eight hour round trip with two and half hour wait in the middle) - they travelled so well and have settled into their new lives perfectly.

I definitely recommend adopting or even fostering from June - you will continue to have as much support as you need throughout your Furbaby's life x x

June - you and Michael do an amazing job - we all love and appreciate what you do x x

I have always adopted rescue cats - homeless waifs, always from Cats protection, but this time CPH were recommended by my daughter, I spotted Falafel on the website, a priority adoption Tom who was found wandering around on a main road. Another adopter collected him from Heathrow and I collected him from Birmingham. He settled in fairly quickly and has become much loved, appearing happy I've given him a home. Bradley, his new name, has even become very close to Ellie my CP adoption, we both love him to bits!

We have three dogs from CPH. Like others because we work other rescues in the UK wouldn’t entertain us. We have a friend who comes in everyday so they’re only ever on their own for three hours. Without CPH we wouldn’t have them. Miley Cyprus is 4. Red is 4 in December and Bruno is 3 in January. Love them to bits.

No suitable rescue cats available in the UK (hard to believe but true) but June found us an older cat & kitten who have been amazing since day 1.. don’t be scared of getting cats you’ve never met; if you give June all your requirements she will make sure you get the perfect match. Highly recommended.

I wanted to adopt a rescue dog but already had 5 dogs.... so most places would not even consider us. June and her rescue are completely different. We were home checked and the lady was very happy meeting our other dogs. They knew where we were moving to so we were agreed we could adopt. Getting Elsa was fantastic, as was Ripley who we'd donated to help fix her broken leg... then came obi, who we were fostering only initially. So far we have adopted 4 dogs from June, and helped foster 5 dogs in all. The dogs June rescues are fantastic, yes you can adopt in the UK but a dog in need of a home is just that no matter where it comes from. The dogs are very well socialized and very loving! It's been a pleasure to help the charity and to adopt x

When I saw little Charm on the CPH Video Posting I knew she had to come home with me. The whole process was very easy to complete and, after a thorough home visit, we were ready to go. After a 4 hour drive down to Manchester we finally met her. She travelled extremely well back to Scotland and instantly we all fell in love with her. She melted into our family life and bonded with our other 3 cats and absolutely loved our dog who she lay on constantly. She thrived for cuddles and was very playful. I would definitely adopt from CPH again and am so glad there are people like June and Michael in the world to help all these poor animals. I do what I can to help with their fundraising as the work that they do cannot continue without other peoples help. Please support CPH and adopt/adopt/adopt.

our family adopted an eight month old pointer cross called max four weeks ago and could not be happier. the experience of picking our new boy up from the airport was very heartwarming as we knew we had done an amazing thing in saving his life to some extent as these poor animals struggle to find homes in Cyprus. of course we had not met our pup nor did we know much about his personality but what I can say to anyone thinking about doing this is that we believe these animals will be content after settling in as they appreciate the love and security of their new family. the process is very easy and June and her team are a caring and hard working team of super humans in our eyes and we are so glad to have come across this project and gained a wonderful new pet who is also very loyal to us. he is already very attached to us all. rescue dogs in the UK get homed so much quicker and find families easier so we'd urge anyone looking to adopt to consider this process first and help to save another life in Cyprus 🌝

We adopted our dog Red (pka Brick) 8 months ago. My partner and I were worried about not having met him before, however after lots of helpful information from June we decided to get him. He is an absolute star and we are so proud of him. Our families love him and he is great with new people (despite being a bit nervous when we first got him). He has so much love to give and it is fantastic that June and Michael gave him a second chance. We love him

After spotting Fleckle (now Molly) on Facebook I couldn’t resist looking into her further. I then contacted June at Cyprus Pride House and began the process of adoption. Everything was so thorough including my home inspection. This gave me a lot of comfort in the knowledge that everything was done properly and to high standards. June was very knowledgeable and very kind and helpful. The whole experience was so special and when the evening came to pick Molly up I was so excited! Walking to the office to collect her I could hear a noise in the kennel outside and I just knew it was her!
I had a quick sneak round and yes there she was. My gorgeous fur baby and she was so happy to see me. I just wanted to (and did) cuddle her all the way home. She has settled in so well everyone loves her. A big Thankyou to June for all the hard work and time that goes into saving these precious babies. I would do it again and again if I had the room lol💖
I couldn’t recommend to people enough to rescue from here. As my title says it is the best
