About this organisation

Jack Russell Rescue is a not for profit organisation operated entirely by volunteers which has been working to save the lives of dogs since 1993. Jack Russell Rescue has up to 40 dogs in care at any one time and currently re homes over 250 dogs a year that may otherwise be needlessly put to sleep.

The majority of Jacks that come to us at Jack Russell Rescue are surrendered from homes where they are no longer able to stay or whose owner can no longer care for them. We will of course continue to rescue dogs from any shelter or pound where a Jack needs our help; if we have the capacity – we will always endeavour to accept a Jack Russell Terrier in need.

The dogs that we offer for adoption may not all be pure Jack Russell Terrier, but at Jack Russell Rescue, we believe they are all worthy of saving.

As you would understand rescuing and rehoming these dogs comes at a cost. Many need extensive veterinary treatment before they are able to find their forever home, and others take a long time to rehome during which time they are accommodated at a private kennel where we pay weekly fees for each dog. All dogs in our care are de-sexed, vaccinated, heartworm tested, microchipped, wormed, temperament assessed, and vet-checked prior to re-homing. Unfortunately, the adoption fee rarely covers the cost incurred to save the dog.
Jack Russell Rescue relies entirely on donations and volunteers to continue its operations. Jack Russell Rescue has Charitable Fund tax status, which means all donations over $2 are tax deductible. All donations go directly to the care and welfare of our rescue dogs. For information on how to donate please see our website http://www.jrtrescue.net/How-You-Can-Help.php#DonationsSubscriptions
