The JOY Dogs are fortunate to have sponsors

We are happy to announce a new sponsor – Ascendis.  They have agreed to sponsor Jazmine with their product CalmEze.  Jazmine suffers terribly with the thunderstorms and CalmEze has been the only product that has worked for her.  We are grateful to Ascendis.

I was recommended to try Paws for Thought in Ballito, Kwa Zulu Natal by friends. They specialise in kennelling but also have chalets on the property where you can stay with your pets.

On enquiring if I could bring 3 large dogs with me I was offered free accommodation as the JOY Dogs do such good work.

We were so spoiled from the moment of our arrival (soup and rolls provided) to the free dstv and complimentary rusks, tea and coffee. The chalet was perfect, there were 2 areas for the dogs – a paved courtyard which was great as it rained and I couldn’t have the dogs paws get dirty – and a grassed area. The dogs were so happy.

Management was superb and we look forward to our next stay with them. Highly recommended.



Hyper Paint in Booysens kindly sponsored some paint for us (this is the second time).

Thanks Hyper Paint, we appreciate it.

Robot Paints, Hardware and Timber Co. (Pty) Ltd

They are sponsoring the cost of printing photos for The Hamlet where we visit every second week. It’s going to make the residents so happy to have their photos printed.  They pose for photos every visit with the dogs and it’s one of the highlights of the visit.

Thank you Robot!



Nerdybits is our IT support partner.

I have been with Max and his crew since they started in 2009 and they have provided exceptional support.  A lot of our marketing is done via our website and a working computer is vital to our business.  Grateful thanks to Nerdybits for sponsoring us in this way.

You can contact them on 011 432 6597 or on 010 007 0019 or 082 44708801, max@nerdybits.co.za  and their website (sales) is www.nerdybits.co.za


Choice Brokers and Leppard Underwriting. They are sponsoring the public liability insurance for the JOY Dogs. This saving on our running costs will enable the JOY Dogs to visit more aged homes and institutions who normally would not be able to afford our visits.  In this way we can keep spreading the JOY.  We are very grateful.


Kyron Laboratories http://www.kyronlabs.co.za for their donation of a hamper of grooming products.

You can imagine all the grooming it takes to keep Jazmine, Oscar and Yola in tip top condition.  Below is a new photo taken at Kyron Laboratories – they have once again sponsored the JOY Dogs with awesome products.
