Reflections on the Year Past

It was a very busy but happy year: despite setbacks we all encounter in a day, 108 dogs passed through the Jacks Galore doors in 2014.  Those dogs that came to us for help that were not jacks were taken care of and placed in their forever homes through the Berkshire Humane Society, our marvelous local private shelter for which we also volunteer and which we love deeply.  The 97 needy jacks who found their way to us landed with marvelous families throughout the United States; some flew in cabin to their new homes, some went in our JG dogmobile.
