The animals listed here are looking for new guardians directly from members of the public. This is a referral service only; provided as a courtesy to help caregivers rehome their pets. These animals are not housed at Joybound and have not been seen or evaluated by Joybound. All arrangements to meet these animals must be made directly with their guardians. We make no claims and accept no responsibility as to the pet’s health or temperament and cannot be held liable for any outcomes resulting from adoption. 

The animal’s caregiver provides the description and photographs, and they determine the adoption process and fee. Joybound is unable to provide space at our adoption center for introductions.

If you need to find a new guardian for your pet, please see our rehoming guide and complete Joybound’s animal rehoming form. We offer free, 30-day listings. Be prepared to upload a clear, well-lit photo of your pet. Someone from our team will be in contact with you within five business days.
