Tony's 3rd Memorial Transport!

The HOOSIER TRANSPORT has arrived at Joyful Rescues, saving 18 precious lives! This run was sponsored by our volunteer, Jeanne D'Angelo and her friends, in memory of Jeanne's husband, Tony. Photos of the Hoosier dogs will be posted in a few days.
Jeanne says, 'This is the Hoosier Transport, aka Tony's Transport 3, in memory of my husband, Tony. Tony loved Indiana Basketball, aka 'The Hoosiers', so this transport named in honor of one of his favorite teams. One year he convi nced me to buy tickets to 5 IU basketball games, which was great, except the games were in Indiana -- in January and February. Tony only made the trip to Joyful Rescues twice, but he loved, loved, loved it ! The first time was to adopt Vada, and he felt awful about leaving the other dogs behind, so I sponsor the Transport in his memory for something I know will make him happy in Heaven. Thank you to all my friends that helped me sponsor this Transport, I love you all ! Please spread the word about rescuing a dog that needs a forever home, you wont regret it ! Your new best friend forever just may be in the van on the way to Joyful Rescues.'
Thank you to Jeanne, and her friends, for such a loving act in Tony's memory!
Twyla was born about July 21, 2014 and weighs 9 lbs.  She has been wonderful with all of us and great with all the other dogs.   Please understand that we have no prior knowledge of this dog and we will be learning as we go and so will you. We do want to mention that many of these tiny dogs struggle with house training throughout their lives and may benefit from having potty floor pads handy.  From her Foster Mom:  
My name is Twyla and I have been in my new foster home for three days now.  I was told that my tail is docked.  Whatever that means.  My people tell me that my whole butt wiggles when I wag my tail and it wags super fast!  I love cuddling next to my people under a blanket, and I follow them everywhere, even down into the basement!!  I love to be outside with the other dogs too.  There is a nice fenced yard, and the people think that will be best for me because I got out and I RAN!! Thank goodness these people knew how much I LOVE food, and they bribed me with treats  to come back into my yard from the next door neighbors yard.  Speaking of food, I love food just a tad too much!  My people tell me I have a few pounds to lose, and they are watching what I eat.  These people give me vegetables as treats.  Is this normal?  I do jump when I am excited and the people here are working on me with that.  I can't wait to meet you and kiss you everywhere.  Kissing is my favorite!!!!
The Adoption Fee for this dog is $275.00.
Adoptions fees vary based on adoptability. In general our fees include spay/neuter, all age appropriate vaccines, Home Again micro-chipping & registration, worming & flea control - a 'complete' pet. We accept CASH or Visa/Mastercard ONLY. 
Joyful Rescues has no funding except for our adoption fees and miscellaneous donations. Pet care and vet bills are expensive - you must be ready to take on this financial (as well as emotional) responsibility.

We keep our pet list as up-to-date as possible. As soon as a pet is adopted, it is removed from the list. If a pet is still showing, it is still available for adoption.
