Joanna takes donations and spends the money on herself not the animals. The animals get dumped. She will lie and try and make you believe her stories, but don’t. I called the vets she supposedly uses and none of them have seen her bring a single cat in. BEWARE! Read google reviews on her and you will get a clear picture of her deception.
Joanna is amazing I reached out to her late one night about a mom and pups in the woods and she immediately responded and was there the very next day with a foster to rescue them. She really truly cares about these animals and does whatever she can to help them.
I adopted a rescue pup from mama Jelly Bean in 2011 and have followed the Top Paw rescue efforts. They are amazing and do so much for the local community. My "Spike" still is my best buddy and will love him forever!
I have rescued a wonderful pit from total neglect...soooo sad and I am now fostering her. So I researched rescue groups to help me give her exposure and help her find a Forever Home...I signed up with 4...TopPaws being one of the groups. Joanna is the only one of the rescue groups who contacted me after posting her, to see how she was doing and to see If I had any luck finding her a home. She gave me great information about what she does and I'm meeting up with her to look over this sweet poochie...I can't say enough about how great it feels that there's someone out there so devoted to helping these poor animals find a home...I will do what ever I can to help her continue...reading thru her other posts gave me ideas of different ways to donate...love the blankets, towels, socks toys and many other things we can do to help.
Very helpful placed our pets on many listings and they reunited them without when they were found! Their grooming is a master peice
Recently rescued a pit bull family and Didn't ask for a single dime. They rely on public donations but Joanna leaves herself broke just to help the fury voiceless souls. Love Joanna and her work!!!
Top paw is amazing and spends all their energy and efforts accomplishing finding amazing homes for each pet!
We truly need the general public help with donations so we can accomplish an actuall shelter or mobile rescue / grooming van... We need public help
I've known Joanna from Top-Paw since 2009. Way back then myself and a friend adopted 2 kittens from them for her daughter and Joanna was more than help ful. Also back around then and 2010 they helped to TNR cats/kittens for me that were coming to my feeding station. Never did she complain or say she didn't have time or anything like that...it was a phone call and the help was there. I have received good advise regarding different animal situations from Joanna and was fortunate that she picked me to foster one of her rescue dogs named Samantha a little over a year ago. Of course Samantha is still with me and Joanna could not be happier knowing this precious soul is in great hands. I wish more local rescue people would be more down to earth and just be willing to help no matter what the circumstance...I took her to BCAC once to pick up a pittie girl that she was so worried about...She sat in the back of the truck with that doggy and held her like a baby. To me this was a sure sign that she is indeed a pure at heart dog lover and guarded her with her life. Dedicated and real about what she does is what's important. I'm happy to have maintained a "friendship" also all this time. Thanks for all your help ever Joanna !!!! Love Trudie and all the furry kids !!!
Thank you so much for this! I appreciate the help you have given me in return :)
Joanna and Top Paw Rescue are stellar! Top Paw does amazing work and rescues and SAVES LIVES on a daily basis. Rescue work is rewarding BUT extremely time consuming and can at times be heartbreaking, BUT Joanna and Top Paw do such a WONDERFUL job helping so many animals in need. GOOD JOB FRIEND.
Thanks friend! Thanks for being such a great supporter!
Joanna does great work, and I know that whatever I donate will be well-spent.
Thank you! All donations are always put to great use!
I donated about 20 blankets and comforters along with a few playpens and (I know funny) socks. Joanna made such great use out of everything when she was rescuing all the pregnant mothers and nursing mothers. She cut holes out of the sides of the playpens so mommies could get in and out meanwhile keeping babies 100% safe. The socks were filled with rice and placed in the playpen for whenever moms needed a little break. I absolutly enjoy reading their stories on facebook about what they have done next.
Everyone should take some time and get to know who they are. Since they started they have been trying to apply for their 501c3. No luck as they rescue the worse cases and spend most of their funding on vetting instead. please help this great org!
I wanted to explain the story of Angelina. This little girl was skin and bones and ready to be destroyed at BCAC. I remember emailing Joanna from Top Paw in regards to her condition as did a few others interested in saving this little girls life. Joanna made some phone calls, pulled some strings and saved her!
This little girl since has found a happy home and moved on to her next chapter in life. Without Joanna there is no way this little angel would be on earth with us now. Thank you for being so amazing!!
