Our Story

What People are Saying


Stephanie Quinn

Love this rescue! Between myself, my mom and my best friend; we have rescued 3 dogs from Sophies (Balto the husky, Baylee the pekingese and Shelby the shih tzu and they are absolutely wonderful!! Baylee and Balto are the best of friends. Thank you for allowing us to rescue such wonderful fur babies!

Gwen Dixon Bush

This group is amazing! I’m blessed to work with Jen at her paying job and I watch her work tirelessly as her phone never stops. These women stop at nothing to save as many as they possibly can and provide the best vet care for each one they take responsibility for. It is truely amazing to witness and be a small part of. Love them!!!

Joann Quinn

Max (formerly known as Zeak) was rescued by Jen from a shelter in Orlando. I’m pretty sure Max would not have made it out of there without Sophie’s Circle. A black pitbull with one blind eye is not the “cute” family pet everyone is looking for…but, the volunteers at Sophie’s Circle have a knack for finding and saving the sweet souls that deserve a second chance.
