Dog With Terminal ᴄᴀɴᴄᴇʀ Finally Found A Loving Home

Joyanna, the SPCA of Wake County rescue dog who garnered national attention, ᴘᴀssᴇᴅ ᴀᴡᴀʏ on Sunday according to a Facebook post by the organization.

Before the holidays, the shelter posted a plea on Facebook, seeking a loving family to ease the final days of Joyanna, who had been surrendered to the shelter because of a volleyball-sized mammary tumor, which has metastasized to her lungs.

In a Facebook post, the SPCA wrote, “We had 2 different veterinarians assess her condition and both agreed – her ᴄᴀɴᴄᴇʀ has spread far too much for surgery or treatment to be an option, and that the best thing we can do is give Joyanna as much joy and love as possible in the time she has left. ”

According to the facility, Joyanna spent most of her life living outside, without much in the way of attention. The shelter is hopeful that someone will take her in and show her how good life can be, writing:

“We don’t know exactly how long she has, whether it’s days or weeks or longer, but we believe she shouldn’t have to spend her last days in a shelter. She deserves to spend this time in a warm home surrounded by the love of a family. Somewhere she can be held, spoiled, and feel safe.”

Multiple people reached out to the shelter to ask about adopting Joyanna within days of the post. Later that week, Joyanna was adopted.

The SPCA posted: “Our hearts are overflowing to know that Joyanna will finally get to experience a loving family for the first time in her life, and that she will spend the rest of her days being cared for, cherished, and loved the way she deserves to be. ”

“And she couldn’t have found a more perfect family. Her new mom Adrianne is a veterinary technician who just recently ʟᴏsᴛ her terminally ill dog Lemon Pancake after giving her the adventure-filled life of her dreams. AND Joyanna now has a dog brother named Tater Tot (an SPCA Wake alum!) to snuggle and share her toys with.”

“Joyanna’s mom shared these pictures of her first celebratory puppuccino on the drive home from our Adoption Center. She said as soon as they got home, Joyanna went straight for the cat food bowls, spent some time getting to know her new brother Tate, and is now conked out for a nap in bed by the Christmas tree.”

Finally, Joyanna’s wish was fulfilled. She had a happy, happy life before leaving. Thank you to the doctors and rescuers who gave her the best.
