Facts About Me




My Story

In Memory of Aggie Zittle.

The best friends transport is dedicated to Aggie Zittle and her best friend Alice. They met in grade school and their friendship lasted 65+ years.  They grew up together, had careers, raised families and experienced widowhood and divorce at similar times.  This brought them even closer along with a shared enjoyment of gardening, cooking, and BBC television to name just of few.  They were each other’s family and faithfully spoke every Saturday morning.  When Aggie was diagnosed with cancer she and Alice took a trip to Italy.  When the cancer spread, Alice was one of Aggie’s caregivers.  One of their regular outings was to the Artful Gardener and especially the Cabin Fever event benefiting Joyful Rescues.  They are big supporters and loved many pets.  Somehow stray or orphaned animals found their way to them.  Aggie would have loved knowing that every dog in this transport has been given the chance to be someone’s new best friend.

 Alex was born about February 5, 2019 and will likely weigh in the 28 lb. range when full grown.  He came into the shelter as a Terrier mix and we are going to go in the direction of Jack Russell (due to the rough coat) and Sheltie as he has the beautiful Collie markings, but we are just guessing.  This little boy is happy, fun, funny and very social.  He is on the busy side and it would benefit him to have another fun dog in the house.  He is very good with all of us and is going to brighten up someone's life for sure!    This is all we know so far and we will be learning as we go.  The southern shelter feels it is embarrassing to ask questions when humans drop off their dogs as the reason is so often financial in this poverty stricken coal mining area of VA.  

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.
