A Four Pack

Dumped at an old abandoned farm building, our four pack of jacks came to us in desperate need of forever homes. They came a little feral, with a little fear, but with an enormous amount of desire to love and to do good. Three brothers, about a year old, now known as George, Jonty and Moo, and a female about two years old from another litter, Evi, all made their way to Massachusetts to be saved. Our rescue partner in Louisiana begged us to intervene once they were caught, and we gladly obliged knowing that they would find the perfect […]

Muffin; here is her story

        Muffin, a little black and white 11 year old female Jack Russell,  just recently came to Jacks Galore because she has severe health issues that currently requires expensive medication and food. A wonderful rescue we work with in West Virginia had adopted her out in 2016, after being found as a stray. But inexplicably Muffin became very ill and the elderly couple could no longer care for her. While the rescue was trying to figure out her health issues, she was placed in boarding for quite some time until she was stabilized and then they wanted […]

Winter Games

It’s been a while since we’ve reached out and connected with our supporters and adopters, but the rescue has been so extremely busy that when the day ends it’s almost impossible to keep working on the computer just because so many of the jacks need us and they are our priority. This March has been absolutely miserable, the three major no’r easters, back to back, has taken its toll. All of our time has been spent managing the more than 2 feet of snow with each storm and final count of more than 6 feet before mid March.  We still […]

A Legacy for the JG Jacks

It is rare to be so humbled by a gift from a donor unknown to us, whose love of the Jack Russell Terrier assured that Jacks were in his will. By chance his dear friend Barbara, also a JRT lover and owner, learned of us and proposed we be part of his gifting. It thus happened that Dick, his executor and friend of more than 30 years, made sure Jacks Galore was the recipient of a generous donation by The Daniel Edward Offutt III Charitable Trust of Weston, Connecticut.  The donor, Dan Offutt, passed away at 85 following an illness.

The Gift of Giving

The year seems to have gone by extremely quickly, and with that JG mom noticed that she did not kept up very well with news towards the end of the year; I have truly neglected our webpage. The technology of social media keeps the rescue very busy and that is in addition of course to the most important task we have; taking care of all the jacks in our care. We nurture an average of 33 jacks! But as the year comes to a close, we do want to take a moment and thank all of you, every single one of […]

Passing of the Torch

A week ago the torch was passed from one Jack Russell rescue to another. Russell Refuge has closed, and Jacks Galore has stepped in with open arms greeting those jacks remaining when it shuttered. In 2003 we adopted our first “Jack” from Dale, and it became apparent that our love for this breed would lead to the forming of Russell Refuge. Dale had been doing Jack rescue already for more than 20 years when I met her, but forming a 501©(3) charitable organization made the most sense so that more dogs could be taken in and adopted out; providing the rescue […]
