I'm one of Pru's Crew!"Our mother, Prudence, enjoyed celebrating the holidays.  She believed in giving and would share her last $1 to help others.  After her passing, my sister and I support non-profit organizations in honor of our mother's generous spirit.  Joyful Rescues holds a special place in our hearts and their volunteers work hard to bring hope to animals in need of a safe and loving new beginning.  Our home is filled with three special additions that were adopted through Joyful Rescues' transport efforts.  Our dogs: Troy, June, and Harper Rose bring us joy and love.  Please consider adopting!  In loving memory of our mother" - Diana & Jen from Orchard Park NY
Merlot was born around June 12, 2007, and weighs about 11 pounds.  Merlot came to us from KY where she was found as a stray and no one came looking for her. Merlot is an older girl and has some lumps and bumps.  At her age, we have chosen not to test them.  Her sight and hearing are fine and her teeth are in great shape for her age.  This sweet girl does not ask for much and just wants to hang with her human on a comfy dog bed or better yet your lap. She is not the typical chia type that nips and barks.   Merlot is fine with other dogs and doesn't care about cats.  I can't imagine she would be a problem with children but may not appreciate really young ones poking and prodding at her.   Merlot rode well in the car and walks well on a leash.  This amazing girl is going to fill your home with love and you won't be sorry you took a chance on an older dog!   The Adoption Fee for this dog is $300.00
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.   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.
