Because Joni was an avid dog lover, in lieu of flowers, the family would be honored for your donation made in her memory to a dog rescue and support center, such as www.apollosupportandrescue.org, the organization where she had rescued some of her beloved pups, including Loki. Along with Apollo support and rescue center, she also supported www.aspca.org/donate and all local animal shelters. She was passionate about rescue dogs, especially pit bulls, and would feel grateful for a memorial tribute in her honor.
