About Us

joyful-pets-lauren-mccarron-founderWelcome to Joyful Pets, the “all-in-one” community where pet parents (and parents-to-be!) can find up-to-date and useful information about pet adoption and pet care.

We have a two-fold mission:

  • To help you select the perfect pet from the many furry friends who are in local animal shelters or rescue facilities eagerly waiting to be adopted.
  • To provide you with everything you need to raise a happy and healthy pet, including 24/7 online veterinarian service, trainers, boarding facilities, pet sitters, daycare, groomers, toy and food recommendations, pet insurance, and a library of articles from a variety of pet experts.

We are on a mission to help these sweet and loving furry friends find happy lives with pet parents who are willing to open their hearts and homes. If you’re ready to adopt a furry ball of happiness, then please click here to start your search. Be warned though; you’re signing up for an overload of cuteness, hours of fun playtime, and a lifetime of unconditional love!

If you already have a joyful pet, we invite you to join our community of pet parents at Joyful Pets. We’d love to see your photos and videos, read your stories, and hear your news. Welcome to the family!

Our Founder

The founder behind Joyful Pets is Lauren McCarron, an animal welfare advocate, rescue group founder, and tech entrepreneur.

After selling her first business, A.S.A.P. Advisor Services, Lauren was able to realize her dream of helping animals in need by founding a non-profit rescue group, Joyful Pets Animal Rescue, which she continues to manage in addition to Joyful Pets.

Lauren’s rescue work and time spent helping hundreds of new pet parents navigate the world of pet parenting inspired her to create Joyful Pets.
