My story

In Memory of Papa Ouderkirk

  'I have always had a huge heart for all animals, but especially cats. We even adopted two cats from Joyful Rescues: Leia and Lucy. Lucy is actually one of the cats that came from a transport, and when I saw how small and weak, she was, as well how she always scarfed down every meal as if it would be her last, I felt terrible for her.  I would like to name this transport “The Papa Ouderkirk Memorial Transport” in memory of my grandfather, who passed away in 2019 due to lung cancer he was a lover of cats as well'. - Christianna Reynolds 

Freebie was born around August 04, 2019 and weighs about 20 pounds.  It seems Freebie came from a puppy mill or backyard breeding situation.  She ADORES other dogs and is happy and playful with them.   Freebie wants to love us humans and will walk up to us but runs in fear when we try to touch her.   Freebie has never been aggressive to human touch just extremely fearful.  Freebie must have a secure fenced in yard and another playful well socialized dog in her next home.  It is going to take some work and patience to show Freebie that humans are wonderful but the outcome will be well worth it for you and for Freebie .  Please do some reading on working with mill dogs before applying to adopt Freebie.  Update:  Still no human has touched this girl, but she will come within a few feet of the human she sees the most.  When she gets near I smile, wave, and say her name and she wags her tail, but will run immediately if I move toward her.  I'll keep working on it.  She does use the dog door freely and does come into the TV room with the other dogs and two humans in the evening, but she looks around, plays with another dog and then she is off doing more dog things.  Freebie does shed.
The Adoption Fee for this dog is $450.00
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.
