The NJ Crew Make Progress

We finally have gotten to know the crew well enough to be able to name them, which we did with the help of all of you. So many fabulous names were submitted and it was very difficult to choose, but in the end, the dogs named themselves! Four of these JRTs headed up to Dawn in northern New York; a most trusted adopter, foster and dear friend. At her home, she will work with the ones JG deemed most in need of special time and effort. When asked, Dawn agreed to take on this Herculean task (which she did for […]

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 […]

Thank You ALL

Jacks Galore is very fortunate to not only have such amazing support from so many JRT lovers, our adopters, and people who consider our rescue work important and believe in our mission, but also a Jack Russell rescue network that likes to help each other in time of great need. JG what like to thank Russell Rescue who stepped up to the plate with an extremely generous financial donation to help JG with additional vetting and the continued care of the Refuge dogs. So many have already gone to wonderful forever homes, and we’re still working with quite a few […]

We NEED Your Help

With the very large influx of the Russell Refuge dogs into Jacks Galore’s fold, we’re reaching out to all of our supporters and hopefully some new fans, asking everyone to step up and help us reach our fundraising goal of $15,000. JG mom’s sister has already pledged $5000 as a matching grant. Please help if you can right here!!! The need is GREAT; as all the dogs have come up for their annuals at the time we took them in.  Time for updating shots, blood work needed to be done, numerous dentals on the seniors, there were a few spays […]

A Father’s Day Tribute

A day to pay tribute to all of our dads, and even those who no longer have their fathers such as my husband and I, we can certainly appreciate how important a role our fathers have played in our lives. Many fathers are not just dads to two legged creatures, but to all of our little four-legged critters as well. We know that the fuzzy ones also appreciate the fact that there’s a father in their lives. Here is but a sprinkling of pictures of some our many alumnae dads – loving their jacks!!!! JG dad is certainly one of […]

The Oldies That Are Surrendered

Chaplin is the newest member of the Jacks Galore sanctuary, 13 ½ years of age and deaf since birth; not the oldest, but certainly not the youngest either. Family medical issues, no one to take him in, a plea to find him a forever home because he’s still a “great healthy little dog” was the word we got. We can no longer count how many times our rescue gets these requests; emails, phone calls and pleas to help an old dog either being surrendered by an individual, or a shelter reaching out before the dog is euthanized. Too often it […]

A Tribute to Two Jacks by Cara Williams

Cara Snider Williams, ContributorWriter, professor, follower of Jesus, news junkie, animal lover Bookending an Era: Loving and Losing My Dogs 05/07/2017 03:23 pm ET | Updated 1 day ago It was during a warm summer, in 2006, that I brought home two Jack Russell terriers from Baypath Humane Society in Massachusetts. I had never even owned one dog on my own before, but there were Mickey and Nugget, alone-together at the shelter, terrified and accustomed to a home with a couch and beds. They were “the bookends” as the shelter director called them, four-years-old and in need of a home together. To be […]

Adopter Updates

There is no greater joy in rescue than getting updates from our adopters about their jack’s progress, antics, and news of their new companion’s daily lives. There is also no more satisfying moment when someone comes back to adopt their second, third, or sometimes fourth Jack Russell! For the many Jack Russells that have passed through our doors, we always make a point of staying in touch with our JRTs for at least a short while; until we feel confident that the match was a good one, they are being loved, and are not giving their new family any problems. […]

The Meaning of Sanctuary

When Jacks Galore takes on the geriatric set we bring in the senior jacks that are no longer wanted, have outlived their usefulness, whose owners have passed before them, or life has just brought them some bad luck.  We find this part of our rescue mission to be of utmost importance. The sanctuary offers hospice for the feeble, ill of health, or those unadoptable due to age, and care for them until they cross the infamous bridge. The elderly who come into our lives take on a very special meaning for Jacks Galore as we find the reward in showing them […]

A Poem “To My Foster That Saved me”

“To My Foster That Saved Me” There I was, alone and afraid, You got a call and came right to my aid. You bundled me up with blankets and love. And, when I needed it most, you gave me a hug. I learned that the world was not that scary and cold. That sometimes there is someone to have and to hold. You taught me what love is, you helped me to mend. You loved me and healed me and became my first friend. And just when I thought you’d done all you do, There came along not one new […]
