Joy's "Gotcha" Day

March 11 2016

In early 2016, we and sanctuary dog Trevor grieved the loss of PVAS founding dog Amber.  Our sadness soon became Joy!

Joy was a neglected outer community pup, rescued from the pound by the wonderful people at SAFE Broome. Knowing we were ready to grow the PVAS family, and believing Joy would be the perfect sanctuary pup, we were soon contacted.


A tiny pup, with a fluffy duck, tumbling out of a huge pet crate in excitement after arriving on a flight from the northwest. Joy was one of many rescue pups finding their families that afternoon, and the terminal was full of smiles. 

Joy by name and by nature, she is the Valley’s A1 watch dog, purveyor of treats, and provider of laughs! Joy loves cuddles, adores the volunteers, is happy to share sunset walks  - and we couldn’t love her more!
