It's about time they clarify. She didn't "steal" any dogs!

She should have let the trooper and Rosetti in the day they came, if she had nothing to hide and if she really cared about returning the pet to its owner. Also, there are other people who had there dogs taken from her and finally returned to avoid charges against her.
Joy may care about the animals, but she also loves the money she is making and the free perks that goes with it such as food, helpers, etc...

Joye needs to stop playing God with these animals.
She needs to remember they are animals and they don't always like to be in doors.

I agree, hounddog. Joy recently rejected our application for adoption simply because we have 2 small children. THAT WAS THE ONLY REASON!!!!! It wasn't even for any particular dog. She said, "No dog for you. Try again when your kids are older." Give me a break. I've seen pictures of dogs that have been adopted literally laying on small babies (check her "Happy Tails" section.) I think she just plain didn't like our family. In fact, I think she's racist (my husband isn't white). She definitely has a god complex when deciding who "deserves" to have a dog but we're more than happy to find another adoption organization to support.

Oh, Rejected, I feel your pain. She just turned us down because although I did say our dog would be allowed on the couch I was apperantly not as enthusiastic about it as she wanted me to be. She said we didn't sound ready for a small dog. No checking of references or anything, I wonder if she even bothered reading our entire application, because we spent over an hour filling that thing out making it clear how ready we were for a dog and that we knew what responsibilities we were taking on and had done a lot of research. She was really mean about the whole thing as well, she was just rude. We were absolutely crushed, I cried most of last night over it, we had a particular puppy in mind and I had already gotten too attached. Did you end up getting a dog somewhere else?

I too was turned down because I had returned a dog to them 2 years ago due to divorce. I thought it would be better for the dog , but now my children & I are punished 2 years later.

Doing some research on Joye and her "rescue" as I also was deemed not acceptable to adopt from her org. Even though I have a rescue cat (11 ) a rescue dog (2) had my last rescue dog for 13 yrs!!! I was dumbfounded as she didn't even call any of my 9 references - not even te rescue org I work with now!!! She wouldn't respond to ANY of my emails or give cause. And her rescue dogs are upwards up 400-450??? Went to a local event today and was told she NEVER shows up at events,the volunteers are so frustrated as they put in all this time to place these pups and Joye shuts everyone down?? But she did just allow an adoption last week and the dog was returned because it "whined" - perhaps someone else should be screening her apps. And she doesn't even do home visits - DONT WORK WITH HER, so many other orgs that are on the up and up!!!Joyful rescues? More like Painful rescues!!! Go elsewhere!!!

I understand your concern. But it's frustrating being a shelter owner. I have 70 cats and I can tell you it's a lot of work
