Adoption Fees
Our adoption fees are based on the adoptability of that pet. Joyful Rescues has no funding with the exception of our adoption fees and miscellaneous donations. Your adoption fee is how our group survives paying for extensive veterinary bills, food, litter, medicines, vaccinations, vehicles, travel expenses to adoption events, utility costs, etc.......Any additional you feel you can add to the established fee would be so appreciated but not required. 

Each pet will have at least 1st distemper/booster vaccine, wormer and flea treatment.Pets will be spayed/neutered and given rabies vaccine if of age prior to leaving Joyful Rescues for their forever homes. Cats will also be tested for Feline Leukemia/FIV and only adopted out if negative.

Dog & Puppy Fees:
The fee for our puppies/dogs generally run $200.00-$400.00 each but could be more or less depending on the pet. For a senior or high maintenance dog (behavioral/medical issues) the fee will be more negotiable.
