 About Our Founder

In 2014, Lauren McCarron established an animal rescue group called Paws Crossed. During her early rescue efforts, she witnessed the shortcomings of the shelter system, including the distressing reality that nearly one-third of animals in shelters were once family pets.

This revelation about the shelter system, burdened with an influx of pets surrendered by families, led Lauren to create Joyful Pets in 2018. Her mission was to provide a loving and empathetic alternative for families facing the heart-wrenching decision of parting with their pets. Joyful Pets was born from her unwavering commitment to improving the lives of pets and their families while preventing beloved family pets from ending up in shelters.

Our Commitment as a Social Enterprise

At Joyful Pets, we operate as a social enterprise, blending our passion for animal welfare with the practicalities of running a sustainable business. While our heart is in the mission of keeping pets in loving homes and out of shelters, we rely on a modest fee structure to support our comprehensive services. This approach ensures that we can continue to offer high-quality care, advanced technological tools, and personalized support for every pet and their new family.

Our fees are reinvested into the services we provide, helping us to maintain and improve our platform, expand our support network, and develop resources that benefit both pets and their families. By choosing Joyful Pets, you’re not just finding a new family member; you’re supporting a model that strives for a better future for all pets.
