Our previous two rescue dogs were mixed hound breeds and had been perfect in so many ways. They were both adopted from local centres. Having looked at hundreds of rescue dogs advertised on the various wensires, I saw Harvest who was a mixed hound breed who I saw advertised on a UK website. I immediately fell in love with him and was disappointed when I found he was actually living in Cyprus. I had strong red lines as I wanted a dog who was medium sized, good with people, children and other dogs. We have two young grandchildren and I was very unsure about adopting a dog from abroad whom I had not met/seen. June at Cyprus Pride sent a description of Harvest but I was concerned how accurate the description was! Much to the amazement of my friends and relatives, I agreed to adopt him. Harvest arrived one week ago. I have to say that June’s assessment of Harvest was absolutely ‘spot on’ She described him as ’submissive , gentle and adorable.’ It is early days but so far he has certainly proved to be the most adorable young dog imaginable!! I cannot thank June and Michael enough for

I cannot thank June and Michael enough for the way the whole process was handled. They handled all the paperwork and arranged his flight to the UK. It was totally hassle free and went very smoothly. Harvest had his vet check yesterday and he was given a clean bill of health. Our vet was amazed to see his passport as he said he had never seen a rescue dog from abroad with such a fully documented passport. He was so impressed that he took it to show his partner in the practice!! I feel I must say a very big thank you to June and Michael at Cyprus Pride for providing us with the best Christmas present we could have wished for! I can fully recommend Cyprus Pride Rescue Centre to anyone considering adopting a pet from abroad. I could not give them a higher endorsement!!
Thank you

We had been looking for a rescue puppy for over a year, however it was proving difficult with local centres due to my youngest daughter being 7. I came across a post advertising our gorgeous Keira (previously Shea) a beagle cross and immediately fell in love. At the time of enquiry, she was 9 weeks old, and I wasn't aware these puppies were located in cyprus with CPH, however this didn't put me off wanting to give this little girl a forever home. I did alot of research, and read so many amazing stories from other CPH adopters. The process took around 4 weeks in total, June was so helpful and took care of all aspects of the adoption. Keira arrived with one of her other sisters at Glasgow airport and instantly became part of our family. She is the most kind natured, funny wee girl. we couldn't be more grateful to June and Micheal for everything they have done and continue to do for these animals, and will be forever thankful for bringing Keira into our lives. If you are thinking of adopting, please consider CPH, so many gorgeous animals still needing homes, I wish I could adopt them

I should have commented sooner but didnt think... I was so wrapped up in our new girl GSD Cross shes been such a delight to have, everything I was advised about her nature has been exactly as said. June and Michael make this so easy for us that all we had to do was pick our girl up from the airport.. and since then we have gone away on mini breaks and walked so much. Shes a gem and all down to these two amazing people

Thank you x

Similar story to many others. Experienced pet owners unable to adopt in the UK as we have 3 young children (10-13) and a cat. Someone suggested to us looking at foreign rescues and we discovered CPH. I made a few enquiries and was very impressed with the way everything was handled. What we didnt realise at the time was that all of this work was managed by June and Michael, with their dedicated network of volunteers. Wow!

Nala arrived at about 15 weeks of age and has been a hit ever since. She is so calm, loving and happy - I couldn't imagine our home without her. We love it when we meet all of the designer dogs locally and when their owners ask us what she is, we say we have no clue. We just know that she is the perfect dog 🙂

We also know that June and her network are some of the most dedicated people we have come across in their efforts to help these animals and we are proud to have done our bit to re-home Nala and sponsor some of the more recent puppies until they were rehomed.

We adopted Olaf from June and Michael. He came to us on 1 November and wasted no time in settling in. He is the most affectionate , beautiful boy. June and Michael had done an amazing job, from rescuing him to rehoming him.We cannot thank you enough for allowing us to adopt him. I’d recommend adopting from June and Michael any day.

I had been looking for a rescue dog for a while but was struggling to find the right dog. When I first saw a photo of Matilda (was then Earth) I had a really strong sense that she was my dog! But as an older girl, and an overseas adoption (which I hadn't planned to do!) I had lots of questions!
June was wonderful, she knows the animals in her care so well and provided me with lots of honest information, veterinary test results, and details about the process for adoption and flights.
The home check was arranged swiftly and then I had a short wait for Matilda to fly. During this time June sent me a couple of videos of Matilda and that was just brilliant as I could barely contain my excitement at her impending arrival!
A few days before her flight June sent lots of info about the flights and what to do when she arrives, and her diet for the first few days. Collecting my dog from Bristol airport was fairly surreal, very emotional, but also a very straightforward process.
Matilda has been an ABSOLUTE JOY. I cannot emphasise enough how absolutely perfect she is. I

Matilda has been an ABSOLUTE JOY. I cannot emphasise enough how absolutely perfect she is. I am so thankful she is in my life and have so much gratitude towards June and Michael for not only making it possible - but for saving her in the first place, and the lives of so many dogs and cats in Cyprus.
I am also so happy to be part of a wonderfully supportive online community of Cyprus Pride House adopters, it is great to see others with their Cyprus Pride House cats and dogs, and to share info and lots of cute photos!
If, like me, you are maybe not sure about adopting from abroad, I would definitely say to go for it, and I cannot recommend CPH highly enough!

Whilst Holliday in Cyprus in July 2019 we sadly seen many animals especially cats roaming the streets, many very ill or badly injured, as always we done our best to help feed them during our stay but never intended on bringing one home as we already have multiple pets back home - this was until we met the very affectionate, gorgeous Jess, we instantly fell in love with her, she wasn’t like other street cats, far too trusting and soft, we feared she wouldn’t last on the streets of Cyprus, one day during our stay we couldn’t find her for a full 24hours as she was always at the same spot, we feared the worst 🙁 the next day she returned, she looked unharmed but seemed shaken as if something had happened to her, there and then we knew we had to do whatever it took to get her home to us. We made several calls and many rescues although lovely, couldn’t help us or were full, it was then we found the amazing june and Michael at cph, they could not have been more helpful, with only 48 hours till we had to depart to go home so we

We made several calls and many rescues although lovely, couldn’t help us or were full, it was then we found the amazing june and Michael at cph, they could not have been more helpful, with only 48 hours till we had to depart to go home so we really did have to move fast. We managed to secure Jess in a carrier and made the drive to cph where we met the incredible June, any doubts I had in my mind gone the second I met her in her home and all the amazing animals cph have saved, there were multiple dogs cats and even rabbits, all looking so healthy, well and happy, I was lost for words at the tremendous work June and Michael were doing for these innocent animals, I knew our special girl had landed on here paws and would be so well looked after until she was ready to fly to us in bonnie Scotland , it was so hard leaving her but leaving her at cph made it so much easier. We flew home and cph really couldn’t have done any more for us, they arrange her passport, all her vaccs, flights, absolutely everything and took such amazing care of Jess, on top of a massive work load with these animals we were kept constantly upto date with Jess’s progress with lots of photos, Jess arrived to us in Glasgow airport in the early hours of 5th September 2019, since this day she has settled so well, almost too good to be true and I know I owe all of this to the amazing people at cph, without them I couldn’t have got Jess home and she would still be on the the streets if she lasted that long, we will forever be greatful for everything June and Michael did for us and for everything they still do every single day for the animals of Cyprus., two genuine loving animal lovers doing everything from the kindess of their heart. Bringing Jess home and doing so through cph is literally one of the best things we have ever done. We hope in the future to bring another furbaby over to us from June and Michael

Words cannot do justice to the amazing work that June and Michael do. They love these animals and do everything in their power to find them wonderful new homes. The adoption fees cant even cover the costs they incur, they do so so much great work. My little girl is the love of my life and I will never be able to give June and Michael enough thanks for all they did for her before she arrived. There is a closed FB group for adopters and every single one adores their pet(s) and does their best to support fundraising for CPH. If you can give a good home to a rescue dog or cat then please support CPH, you wont regret a second. If I could give more than 5 stars then I would.

After my elderly cats passed away I desperately wanted to rescue a couple of cats but with a dog and 2 young children I found it, somewhat unbelievably, impossible to find them in the Uk.. eventually I stumbled upon June & Cyprus Pride and although I was a bit nervous it was a scam, I took a chance and my goodness I am so glad I did! June took the time to find me the perfect pair and Annie & Zinza arrived a few weeks later... fast forward a year and Frank joined us as well! June took time to get to know what I was looking for in a cat and also to make sure that the ones I had seen and taken a shine to were right for my family (the first couple weren’t and I’m glad I listened). Annie was bold straight off the plane, Frank took a couple of days to come round and was sleeping with our dogs within 4 weeks. Zinza took a bit longer (we were told he needed a lot of patience) but became a beloved member of the family too. I would have no hesitation in recommending a CPH rescue.

We were looking for a rescue dog and a family friend shared a video of a little spaniel in Cyprus who immediately caught our eye. The application and subsequent home check all happened very quickly and we were approved to adopt within days! We had a tense few weeks waiting as Christmas and new year slowed things down. Just under 3 weeks ago we went to pick up our beautiful little Scarlett from Gatwick- a surprisingly quick and straightforward visit. We were immediately in love with our precious arrival. She travelled well and has settled amazingly. I would thoroughly recommend Cyprus Pride House for choosing to rescue from. June has been amazing and we are forever in her debt for making our family complete again. I would also like to thank everyone else who works so hard both in Cyprus and in the Uk. You are all stars xxx
