Pepe’s Journey to Safety

PEPE UPDATE – FUNDS RAISED!!!  Pepe will be on his way soon in early August.  We will keep everyone in the loop of this gentleman’s journey from Spain.  Thank you one and all for helping Tracy reach her goal!! An email from a foreign land, a desperate plea for help, a Jack Russell destined to die in a no kill shelter where care is not able to be provided, an American student who took him off the streets but could not help him complete his journey to America. This is Pepe’s story. Jacks Galore was asked to perform miracles, and […]

Florida Max’s Story

Another jack on his way to Jacks Galore to fill the void of those that have passed this year. After a plea for help from a rescue partner down south, Max is coming from Florida where there are so many dogs in need that the shelters are overflowing, and many lose their life waiting. Surrendered because his family could no longer afford to keep him, with severe eye disease and cataracts, his one eye had to be removed to relieve the pressure and give him some comfort. With limited vision in his cataract eye, Max is heading up to Massachusetts […]

A Tribute to JG dad on Father’s Day

Jacks Galore rescue would be nothing if it were not for the amazing support and dedication of JG dad. From the very first jack “Jack” adopted so many years ago, the passion and love for this breed has grown over time. Without Howard, there would be no rescue. At 65, JG dad still works full time to make sure that all the rescue jacks have kibble in their tin cups. Every morning 6 to 12 miles are walked, making sure that the kennel jacks have the exercise they need, no matter the weather; few days are ever missed. If snowshoeing […]

A Jack Mix Left to Starve

Left to fend for himself on the streets of New York City, newly named Calvin came to us via another rescue that pulled him from the New York City shelter because he was on death row. We agreed to intervene and nurse him back to health from what was obviously severe neglect. The dearest, sweetest, most gentle tan and black little jack mix who in the future, when he’s healed and healthy, will most likely weigh about 13 or 14 pounds. Calvin, who we presume to be a nine month old jack Russell, mixed with some Italian Greyhound, is the most quiet […]

A Poem for Rescue

Rescue is special, it is something we devote ourselves to, it is for the love of the breed we chose, for those that are underserved and for those creatures that have no voice.  Rescue shapes who we are, we go into it with eyes wide open, with faith, energy and hope.  We know so very deeply that we cannot help them all, that we can never make them all whole.  We hope we can rescue as many as our time and energy allows us, we hope that we can persevere in the moments of despair, sadness and rejection, we hope […]

Nellie Baby to the Rescue (literally)

Let me tell you about a little tiny 8 pound tricolor smooth coat jack russell who is the most delightfully sweet and loving girl despite her physical handicap. Nellie gets along with absolutely every dog she’s ever met, be it a girl or a boy, and her main interest is the tennis ball. The other thing very important to this little jack is that she can share her company with a human. Nellie came to Jacks Galore from a shelter who was desperately seeking help on an emergency basis with what the local vet thought, after taking x-rays, was a […]

The Travails of Tator Tot

Tator Tot, a sanctuary Jack took a long circuitous route to Jacks Galore, but in the end it is with us that he crossed the bridge and was adored at the end of his life.  Reaching out to the rescue listed on his name tag, we learned that he was found in a hallway and brought to a rescue who adopted him out to someone who only kept him for a short time until their  “daughter went back to school and he started destroying things”. He then was adopted by someone else who had him for a couple of years and […]

A Year in Review

2015 certainly was an exciting year, if not also a very sad one for Jacks Galore. We had a record number of adoptions as we watched 83 little jacks and their mixes wander out of our kennels into loving forever homes.  We very sadly said goodbye to nine sanctuary jacks who will all be terribly missed. They graced our home with their lives and love for just a few months to many years, and let us know that they are the reason we do rescue. Wee little Milo who came to us with a liver shunt at the age of […]

Angel’s Homecoming

For a little Jack who came into Jacks Galore from a shelter as a wounded soul, she was given a Christmas gift that many rescue dogs will never know: a forever home that will let her spread her wings like a Jack should. JG mom cannot think of a better home for this little three-legged warrior, as Janet and Jerry have opened their hearts and went above the call of duty when they took Angel in. Now known as Dixie Angel, our little Southern girl will live with her fur mom and fur dad in Delaware and share her life […]
