In Honor and Memory of Our Dear Friend

Karen McGonnell
Karen was one of the founding members of Joyful Rescues. We would not be where we are today if not for her tireless efforts to help pets in need. Even in the after-life she has continued to help and guide us in our efforts. She truly was an angel on earth and is greatly missed!

I looked at all the caged animals in the shelter… the cast-offs of human society. I saw in their eyes love and hope, fear and dread, sadness and betrayal. And I was angry! “God,” I said, “This is terrible! Why don’t you do something?” God was silent for a moment and then spoke softly, “I have done something,” was the reply. “I created you.” - Author Unknown
