Kay Jacobs's Story...
Thank You Lizzie Jacobs!
Due to the generosity of an amazing young supporter, Lizzie Jacobs, who wanted to do something meaningful in honor of her two rescue dogs, Joyful Rescues was able to save more precious lives! Lizzie tells us, "I named this transport in honor of my two rescue dogs, Miles and Sadie. When I visited Joyful Rescues for the first time I saw a very special and unique type of rescue. Just to name a few reasons why Joyful is so special: the dogs have no deadline for when they need to be adopted, they receive top notch healthcare, food, love, and time outdoors to run and play (as opposed to being locked in a crate all day which is standard at many rescues and shelters). There is so much need for a place like Joyful Rescues and that is why I wanted to sponsor a transport." ~ Lizzie Jacobs Thank you Lizzie! Miles and Sadie are very blessed to have a mommy who has so much compassion for homeless animals!
Kay Jacobs was born about September 9, 2013 and weighs about 50 lbs. She appears pure bred, but that may not be the case. The volunteers in VA heard about a hoarding situation in KY and jumped in the car and brought back Kay and two other dogs to get them out of the situation they were in. The volunteers promised to come back if they chose to release any more dogs. We are told the humans feel they are doing a good thing, but it is not a good situation. The dogs are living outside and Kay has a previously broken leg that has not healed properly (we will be getting it checked out to see if anything can be done) and she uses it for balance, but otherwise holds it up. She has severe cherry eye in both eyes which need to be repaired at an estimated tune of $1,600 - $1,800 for both eyes at Animal Eye Care of Western NY. If the leg is what it is (it should NOT be amputated as she does use it) it is only the cost of an x ray and diagnosis. If something can be done to help this leg it could run into the $1,000 - $3,000 range. It was requested that we bring back a, very deserving, special needs dog on this transport and Kay was the chosen one. Please, if you can help us with her medical bills we would be so very grateful and so would she! Kay is doing wonderful with all of us and 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.
The Adoption Fee for this dog is $300.00. This fee will be adjusted accordingly depending on if we are able to find funding to help her or if we let her go "as is" to someone that has the funds to make this girl better after adoption.
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.
YOU MUST BE AT LEAST 25 YEARS OF AGE TO ADOPT A DOG FROM JOYFUL RESCUES
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.
Our primary goals here at Joyful Rescues are to re-home pets and save them from becoming homeless in the future, educate the public on pet care and spaying/neutering to control the pet overpopulation, to spay/neuter every pet before they leave us and spay/neuter as many pets, belonging to the public, as possible within our means.
