I recently submitted an application for a puppy, while everything checked out they questioned me about a dog kennel in my yard. When I spoke to Joy about it ( dogs spend very little time in it ). She was informed that the dogs use for own safety. Joy asked why I didn't just put the dogs in the house. Wouldn't you rather see them outside with use then inside. Joy would not listen to what I was telling her and then rudely told me her finale word was that we are not fit to adopt for her group. I have had five dogs in the last
27 years that have been our family, my children have grown up with them. We had just recently put one of our beloved dogs to sleep and hoping for a new puppy. Well Joy I would never recommend your group. At last count I saw 176 cats and dogs up for adoption and you tell me I am unfit.
Cons: they don't make good judgement calls

I adopted my little pom, Griffin, from Joyful in January. I found him on petfinder while searching for a lost pom. Taken in by the beautifully written story and his gorgeous little face, I wrote to Joye. My husband Karl and I drove to the Rochester area and met the most wonderful couple who were fostering Griffin. If I am lucky I have made lifelong friends with Susan and Lee Buckman. Joyful rescues had our little boy twice before but he is mine forever now. My experience was great and we are totally in love with our new addition. Joyful's description of Griffin's personality and health was complete and accurate.
Pros: wonderful, caring people

WONDERFUL!! I have adopted from Joyful Rescues (more than once) & appreciate their dedication to the pets in their care. I love that the application is so detailed to make sure potential adopters are responsible pet owners & the pets will get ONLY the best! I have met many of the volunteers & they are also WONDERFUL! I see the other reviews here as emotional revenge to being rejected. I LOVE THIS PLACE!!!!!!!!
Pros: Loving People, Very Detailed Application, Great Facility, Can't say enough
Cons: A bit of a drive but worth it!!
