This Is Why We Do What We Do

“When we had to move my mother into care because of her advancing Alzheimer’s, we had to take the difficult decision to rehome her beloved six year old dog Bella. It was very important to us to try and place Bella directly with another family. We approached Joyful Pets for help, and never looked back. They provided both practical and emotional support throughout the adoption process, with a service that saw us find a kind and loving local family for Bella very quickly. We have been able to hand her over to her new family in the full confidence that she is going to a safe and happy new beginning. We can’t recommend Joyful Pets enough!”

“Joyful Pets has been a lifesaver! Because of health issues, I needed to rehome my sweet boy and Joyful Pets helped me find the perfect match! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!”


“We needed to rehome our older dog Sneakers. We really didn’t want to take him to the shelter and had no idea what to do. Enter Joyful Pets who not only found a loving family for Sneakers, but also helped facilitate a smooth transition to his new home.”

“Your service is fantastic. I didn’t even know where to begin when it came to rehoming our dog. But after y’all posted about him, I had emails pouring in immediately. We found the absolute perfect home.”


” Rehoming our beloved Zoey. I was contacted by Lauren of Joyful Pets. She explained their process to me. She was very understanding and helpful throughout the rehoming of our pet. I chose the full package since we work full time and did not have time to do this on our own. Lauren got to work right away and was screening applications for our pet. Within a matter of hours, I found a match for her. I highly recommend Joyful Pets, they are truly looking out for the animal’s welfare and your peace of mind in rehoming a beloved family member.”

“I just wanted to say what a pleasure it was working with Joyful Pets. I had to re-home my cats and it was a very sad experience for our family. Lauren was very understanding and compassionate through the entire adoption period. We had a few different families interested in adopting Timothy & Oliver but we decided to go with a very nice family almost four hours away from us.

Although we spoke to the family, Joyful Pets did a nice background check on them, which made us feel even more secure. They spoke to us and to the adoptive family and explained the easiest ways to decrease the cats stress levels and what products, such as calming sprays, would be best to transport them.

Lauren went so far as to contact us the day of the adoption knowing it would be hard on us and asking if we were okay. We were very lucky to find her and so were our boys who are now in their new home (and from what we can see from their new mom via photos, they are doing great so far).

If for some reason you have to re-home a pet or if you are looking to adopt an animal in need, I would highly recommend reaching out to Joyful Pets. They are just wonderful.”
