We Came and Then………Adopted!

Why did we get adopted before we even got on the website?  Well, sometimes rescue moves very fast.  Jacks Galore (JG) encourages anyone interested in adopting a jack now or in the future to put in an application with JG because sometimes we get jacks that match up perfectly with what applicants are looking for, and they see the pictures and say yes.  The result: a quick adoption.

Matching applicants with the right jack is our mission, a goal we take pride in.  There are so many jacks in need that we have a long waiting list of those wanting to come in, there are never enough spaces for those needing to be placed so we try to work with owners, shelters and fosters to place a jack in an appropriate home as quickly as possible.  We don’t want the jacks to be at JG for any longer than need be.  Mind you, the jacks in our care have a great life while waiting for that forever home; long walks every morning (no matter the weather), play time in the afternoon, lots of attention, the most excellent vet care and of course a healthy diet.  BUT it is not a home, and we prefer they not sit and wait forever to find that family to give them the one on one attention they so deserve.

JG loves helping the jacks that find their way into our arms, the dogs that bring such joy to us and steal a little part of our hearts.  A recent adopter noted that when a jack leaves it must be a bittersweet moment; and he was right, it’s a moment of much joy but of quiet sadness as well, for we have loved them as our own to show them there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

Please keep sharing our FB page and website; please consider putting in your application for adoption.  We would love to speak with you and see if maybe somewhere in your future there’s a Jacks Galore jack that might grace your lives!!!  We thank you for understanding our work, for supporting what we do, but most of all for loving the dogs you have now, the jacks in your lives, for loving a dog in need.

Thank you, you make it possible for us to make adoption possible.
