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 […]

Winter Fun in Rescue

Winters are quite hard on rescue, not only do you have to deal with all the shoveling, keeping paths cleared for walking, no salting in dog areas, ice, and high heating bills.  “Newcomers” need to learn the dog door quicker than in the summer; can’t have that plastic flap open for too long with arctic temperatures outside!!  The thing we worry about most is keeping the dogs entertained; busy and still physically active.  It takes a toll on their paws, their diet and their sanity; much like humans, they too can get depressed, bored and oh so very chunky. When they […]

Summer’s Heat and Fireworks

Summer is the time to spend with your jacks, dogs and family; but it is also a time of dog parents beware.  Hot summer days means the pooch should stay home when running errands and not left in the car.  Not only can a dog succumb in minutes in a hot car with the windows cracked or even open, but children do as well.  It is already all over the news and summer has just begun. Use common sense when doing things with your dog in the car in the warm temperature months, but also be aware of other cars with […]

Dandy Andy

Adopted!!!  on a cold spring day in late March, Andy left for his forever home in MA, not far from Jacks Galore.  Jumped into his new car seat, tail wagging all the way, he will be with his new fur parents constantly, both who work from home in the field of art and publishing.  Lucky Andy.  Already he has been showered with toys and affection.  A very special jack, he tore at our heart strings here, tough to see him depart, it was easy to shed tears of joy for this amazing dog.  Off with a skip in his stride, Andy […]

The Cost of Rescue

Where does the money go, what is it spent on? These are two of the many questions rescues get when it comes to what people’s donations are used for. As with any rescue the major expenses are vet bills, medications, dog food, toys and treats. Some, like Jacks Galore, also have transport costs to bring dogs to safety. There are always incidentals: helping another rescue in need; paying a vet bill so a dog can stay in its home; purchasing some dog food and supporting the fosters that hold dogs for a time or forever as in the case of […]

Comrade Casey

Casey (left above with his dearest pal Becky now in heaven) came to us from Russell Refuge, another unadoptable dog exhibiting health issues that nobody wanted to tackle. The unknown is always a scary thing, but Jacks Galore knew the potential this little pint size jack had. He loved other dogs, a comrade to all who met him, so what is just one more pack member? And Casey was adorable. Found wandering on one of the Hudson bridges and picked up by animal control, he constantly had sore feet, did not want to have anyone get near his pads, limped […]

Perry – RIP

On November 11 on the way to the vet, Perry lost his battle to cancer in the seat of his mom’s car safely snuggled with love. Perry did not grace his forever home for long, but he had immediately warmed their hearts with his smile, his gentle nature and his love of life. Their complete devotion to this rescue jack was amazing and Jacks Galore asks if there was anything we would have done different, but we think not. We are so happy that Perry was brought to safety and did not die at the end of a shelter needle, […]

Clete, the three legged wonder

Clete, now named Clyde, went home this cold dreary November weekend to his own 200 acre farm in Vermont.  With a new mom who is a vet, to make sure he never has physical problems and able to monitor his health should he encounter arthritis as he ages, he joyfully performed his no nonsense play for his new fur parents.  With a very large German Shephard puppy as a pal, he found his bliss mouthing his new mate and showing the MASSIVE pup who can speed as well as a four legged giant.  Clyde will continue to run like the wind, for his […]
