Facts About Me




My Story

I Was Saved in Honor of Donny Gionta!

The ‘Gionta Strong’ transport is in honor of our friend, Donald Gionta. Donny was diagnosed with esophagus cancer in June 2018. His positive attitude, his constant smile, and his love for his family and friends carried him through to Thanksgiving 2018. Donnie and his wife Maria have two adopted dogs: Duke and Jake. I loved watching the love between them. It makes my heart smile to know that we are helping to save many who would otherwise not be saved and knowing they will be named ‘Gionta Strong’ and will have another chance in a loving home.  Ro Naomi
Donny was born about March 16, 2013 and weighs about 4 lbs.  He is a bit of a thing and full of the typical Chihuahua spunk.  He is going to need some warm up time and we are told he will bite if he is cornered, frightened, or feels threatened.  We are looking for an adult only home for Donny.  We are told he is house trained, but we always like to mention that many of these tiny dogs do best with a potty floor pad handy – it just makes life easier.  He did well on the ride here.  He is here as an elderly man just could not take care of him any longer.  His fur is a bit tattered, but he should grow a lovely coat once he has had proper care for awhile.  His teeth have been cleaned, but there was no care for a long time and there may be need for another dental in the not so distant future.   Donny is lucky he came to us because he was never neutered and one testicle had not come down which could have caused problems in the future.  If you are looking for a furry, feisty, friend, this boy is for you!
The Adoption Fee for this dog is $100.00.
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.
