Russell Refuge, Inc. provides temporary shelter to Jack Russell Terriers in the northeastern United States who are no longer wanted or have been placed in public shelters. We have many dogs at the Refuge that are not pictured on our site. Please contact the Refuge or submit your adoption application to learn about our terriers.
Update From Dale
Hello Friends of the little guests at Russell Refuge!
It seems like I'm always apologizing for being tardy with updates and thank you notes. It's the same this time. The occupants are to blame! They came here with a plan to take every waking and non waking hour with their demands! They discuss tactics in the night to keep me at their beck and call 24/7! The little devils!
Tactics can range from doleful eyes that stare at me, wanting, wanting, wanting, or barking incessantly whenever I'm hurriedly trying to dish up breakfast or dinner for 50, to digging under the building in pursuit of an elusive varmint requiring hours or days of effort to convince them to come out. They're very proud when they've successfully dug out of a pen that would stump Houdini and show up at my feet with wagging tail and big smile after arousing the others by visiting and discussing further tactics. (This is often planned for hours between midnight and 3 AM) They have my number for sure.
We have many dogs and are in desperate need of good terrier homes. Most needed are homes without another dog, cats or children. Fenced yards and someone home much of the time are an enormous plus. They are good dogs that need to find comfort and peace in a real home. The rest will come. If you are thinking of adoption please don't overlook the following that have been here too long:
The list goes on. All are needy. Please consider opening your heart and home to a rescue terrier. Their future depends on it.
More good news! Earl is doing very well in his new home! He'll write soon. Your loyal ongoing support makes all possible for happy endings. Just ask Earl!
With heartfelt thanks,
Please don't miss reading our Letters From Home.
