PetFest - Rescue Reunion 2019:

On August 3rd, we celebrated our 15th PetFest & Rescue Reunion at our main site in Cuba, NY. PetFest 2019 certainly came with the perfect weather! We welcomed SO many of you! This event is a lot of work for staff and volunteers, but the joy we get from visiting with our amazing adopters and hearing how well their Joyful Rescues’ fur companions are doing is surely worth it.

We take so much pleasure in seeing how much your rescued pets love you and how well they’ve filled out – we love the shine in their eyes and fur! Dog lovers could share stories, show off their beloved dogs – and in some cases, cats in strollers – and enjoy the country setting while watching the antics of SO many dogs!

This event included opportunities to meet Joyful Rescues adoptable dogs and cats who await their “furever” homes, tour Joyful Rescues facility, eight-acre property and a self-guided pond tour were held, followed by a parade and our perfectly imperfect dog show.

Event sponsors included Original Field Roast Company with their Artisan Vegan Grain Meats, Dina’s, Tops and Williams Restoration Construction Company. PetFest helps us to raise funds we require to save so many lives.

​PetFest is a yearly family friendly, including your leashed pet, event!
