About Us

Pet Pardon was formed to raise awareness of the number animals – many who are perfectly healthy, that are being euthanized every day at shelters around the world.

Pet Pardon will reduce the need to euthanize by making it easier and quicker to share a pet’s plight and pledge for the safe rehoming or rescue of an animal at risk.

Our Story

Founded in the UK in 2017, by Canadian ex-pat Sheryl Joyce – a lifelong animal lover and social media user, she discovered an incredible network of of animal lovers that are sharing dogs and cats in shelters on death row that are destined or already on a ‘euthanasia’ list.  

The euthanized are made up of strays, owner surrenders, survivors of puppy mills and dog fighting rings to name a few. Many are sick or banned breeds. Unfortunately, many are just killed for space.

She first got involved as a networker, but quickly learned how time consuming and deflating this process can be. She began pledging, but found it difficult to track the status of the animals and pledges over multiple social channels.

After being a part of this amazing community of animal advocates, she soon realized a void in the animal care space and there was no platform that connected all of the conversations (about a specific animal) in real time.’

The Pet Pardon app connects this underserved community with the content they are passionate about and the means to make a difference.

Please like and share our page on Facebook and follow us on Instagram and Twitter as the only way to make change is to increase awareness.


Be the ‘go-to’ app for animal advocates to network dogs and cats at high-kill shelters around the world to ‘share to save a life’ from death row.
