Slow Going

It is time to explain to all of our supporters and alumni the reason for JG mom’s seemingly dragging her feet on all things rescue. I am sure many applicants are getting frustrated with the length of time it is taking for me to reach out. Many of you have already been approved but are still waiting to be contacted with a possible match. I first remind you that we are an incredibly small rescue and many approved applicants do not fit the need of the Jack Russells we currently have in rescue. Jacks Galore kind of works backwards, we […]

Who Am I?

I am a puppy mill dog. I came from a horrible place in New Jersey. I have been bred every chance possible. I have lived in a crate since the day I was born. I have never known the kindness of human touch. My paws have most likely never touched grass. My crate was my house, my bedroom and my bathroom. I know no other space. I have never been walked on a leash, and a collar is a foreign object. I have only been picked up by the scruff of my neck, and it was never done gently. I […]

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 […]

We need you to help us with names.   Anyone who would like to share their favorite boy and girl dog names we would love you to send them in.

You can send in your suggestions either to the website or to our email at jacksgalore@gmail.com.  So put on your thinking caps, let us get these kids some names. We are not very happy with […]

The NJ Crew Needs

We are going to try to make sense of the little jacks that came into our care this past week and let you know how they are doing as we go along. The most important thing is they made it safely to Jacks Galore and now we are working with them to get to know them, assess their needs, and see how we will move forward.   We want to thank everybody for your incredible support both verbally and financially, and many supporters have been asking what they can buy and send.     At this point vetting is the […]

The Sadness of Rescue

As I sit at my computer, typing this between tears, I ask myself what breaks a person so they have to walk away from rescue. There are many times I think I come close to having to step back, I know of many rescue partners who have thrown in the towel and could no longer carry on. Rescuers all have different reasons for this move; financial, personal matters, health, family, burnout, depression, age, and I’m sure there are more I do not know of. We lost Jane today, a very dear beautiful little rescue Jack Russell soul.  A pretty girl […]

Grateful for our Volunteers

If there is anything that keeps this small rescue moving forward and allows us the ability to help as many jacks as possible; then our volunteers are certainly the linchpin that makes us tick. Most of our volunteers are transporters, and we are part of an amazing transport group of dedicated drivers who always seem to jump to the occasion to help. The list of those who transport is lengthy, but I cannot thank all of you enough (and you know who you are) for always being there for the dogs. We are part of a rescue group whose volunteers […]

2018 Comes To A Close

It’s gone very quickly 2018, and with it we celebrate lots of JRT adoptions, amazing fundraisers, but also sad days of holding our sanctuary dogs in our arms as they cross the bridge. This year Jacks Galore found forever homes for 98 of our Jack Russell Terriers. Many little four-legged creatures passed through our gates this year and of those quite a few were seniors. We are very blessed to have so many wonderful forever families find our rescue and open their hearts and their homes to a jack in need. It is always wonderful at years end to get […]

Dog Toys as Gifts

There are a bazillion places where you can buy dog toys, no lack of choice. It is always wise to buy high quality toys made in America, and best to avoid many made overseas, depending of course on the country where they originate. You want to know what you are buying, because some toys can be very dangerous and deadly to your dog. We would like to suggest one vendor in the US that makes wonderful plush toys from recycled children’s toys, all done by volunteers.  At Glad Dogs Nation,  your entire purchase price goes to spay and neuter programs in […]
