Congratulations and thank you for deciding to adopt a rescue dog! Adopt 1 + Save 3!


How is it 3 dogs? By adopting a dog from JRNC, you create a space for another dog to become a JRNC foster and this allows a shelter to make room to save another dog.

Although “Jack Russell” is in the name, many of the dogs JRNC rescues are mixed breed dogs. The dogs rescued often come from puppy mill seizures, or from high-kill shelters that euthanize dogs. Occasionally, dogs come from families who can no longer care for a dog due to ill-health, death or the inability to take a dog with them when they move. No matter what the reason, they deserve a second chance! Thank you for giving it to them!
