Joybound’s Community Solutions Keeps Pets with Their Loving Families

Robby found the friend of a lifetime in a little, scrappy, black cat named Lightning. They met while they were both experiencing homelessness. As Lightning began to trust him and their bond deepened, Robby was determined to provide her with the care she needed to thrive.

Joybound partnered with Robby to provide Lightning with veterinary care, including vaccinations, microchipping, and spay surgery. Through Joybound’s Pet Safety Net, Robby and Lightning had transportation to and from Lightning’s veterinary appointments. Robby enjoys spoiling his best friend and wants nothing but the best for her. Now, Lightning is happier, healthier, and purring louder than ever.

Joybound’s Pet Safety Net Program provides critical resources such as veterinary treatment, spay-neuter, vaccinations, and microchipping to keep pets healthy and with their families.

Pet Safety Net keeps people and pets safe, healthy, and together. We partner with pet guardians in Contra Costa County who, without support, would be forced to surrender their pets because of personal or financial crisis. Pet Safety Net wouldn’t be possible without the financial support of our partner Maddie’s Fund, who has supported Joybound’s Pet Safety Net program since 2017. With their support, Pet Safety Net has been able to keep thousands of pet families together.
