Why are we still here?

There’s never been a time when we’ve had such a wonderful group of jacks waiting to find their forever homes. Cozy in the kennels, busy on the agility field, long walks in the woods, on the back country roads and snuggles before bed, and that’s all absolutely wonderful; but it’s not a home. It’s not snuggling on the sofa when you’re watching TV, it’s not getting that morning hug from your new family, and it’s not sitting at your window and watching the birds and squirrels in the yard, or greeting the mailman with bounces and barks.  The current crop […]

T-shirt fundraiser for heartworm positive Jacks

Treating heartworm positive dogs costs lots of money and takes a long time. So we’re asking for your help once again! Heartworms in dogs is a very treatable disease, and can be prevented from even happening by a monthly heartworm pill. Two very good and factual articles can be read at the Heartworm Society (yes there is such a thing) and at Pets WebMD, a very informative site. Often many dogs who come to Jacks Galore have not had the advantage of being treated year round to prevent this disease, so they come up heartworm positive when we do their […]

Puppies on Parade

ADOPTED – all pups are heading to their various homes THIS week, the first week in July.  Congrats to one and all on your new kids. Jacks Galore has a hand right now in helping some puppies looking for homes. Mom is a long legged rough coat Jack; and daddy? We are all assuming he’s a Heeler by the markings of the pups. These little Jack mixes, two girls and four little boys, are currently four weeks old and weigh in at 4 pounds. They’ve already started their vetting and continue to nurse with Mama; although she’s getting tired of […]

Who are the sanctuary Jacks?

With the loss of three of our sanctuary jacks, Simon, then Merlin and now Milo, we thought we’d introduce our supporters and adopters to the jacks we call the sanctuary dogs. Currently living out their lives as family members in the JG household, Simon, who crossed the bridge the week of April 20, was one of 24 Jack Russell terriers living together. With the loss on April 27 of Merlin, another senior statesman, and then quite suddenly our dear 7 year old Milo on Sunday the 3rd of May, JG’s numbers have dropped to 21. These dogs, most now over […]

Jovial Jacob

ADOPTED!!!!! Jacob is a little 9-year-old shorty, tricolored 9-pound smooth coated male who lives for the ball! And we mean LIVES for the ball. This little firecracker is not just extremely small but has the energy of 20 Jack Russells. Jacob gets along with all other dogs, and has been rooming with various small Jacks at the kennels here at Jacks Galore, but we think to preserve the peace for the tennis ball’s sake Jacob would be best living as an only dog. Extremely loving, Jacob is a pint-sized bundle who loves to jump on your lap and be adored. […]

Young Adopters

In the last year we’ve been blessed to adopt many of our Jack Russells to families with children and young adults. The kindness, love of rescue, and care they show for their rescue dogs give me great hope for the future. Seeing parents raise their children to love animals, to show respect and kindness, and show responsibility for the dog in their care means future success for rescue. One day these young people will also adopt their own dogs, and perhaps raise a family to show the same kindness they were taught when growing up. It is true that a […]

Already housetrained, extremely smart (the dog door […]
