About Us

Welcome to Joyful Pets, an all-in-one online pet destination for everything you need for your pet, including another pet!
We have a two-fold mission:
  • To help you find the perfect pet from the many furry friends who are being rehomed by their loving families or who are at a rescue or shelter eagerly waiting to be adopted.
  • To provide you with everything you need to raise a happy and healthy pet, including 24/7 online veterinarian service, trainers, boarding facilities, pet sitters, daycare, groomers, toy and food recommendations, pet insurance, and a library of articles from a variety of pet experts.
We are on a mission to help these sweet and loving furry friends find happy lives with pet parents who are willing to open their hearts and homes. If you’re ready to adopt a furry ball of happiness, then please click here to start your search. Be warned though; you’re signing up for an overload of cuteness, hours of fun playtime, and a lifetime of unconditional love!
If you already have a joyful pet, we invite you to join our community of pet parents at Social Petwork. We’d love to see your photos and videos, read your stories, and hear your news. Welcome to the family!
