Donate to the Russell Refuge - We Need Your Help

Please consider donating to our Refuge

Russell Refuge, Inc. provides temporary shelter to Jack Russell Terriers in the northeastern United States that are no longer wanted or have been placed in public shelters. We provide medical care before adoption and find suitable homes for terriers in our care. Our organization is funded entirely by donations. These donations are used for temporary housing, spaying/neutering, transportation from shelters, veterinarian treatments, food, etc.

Fire at the Russell Refuge - December 4, 2014

The Russell Refuge suffered a devastating fire the morning of December 4. The kennel was destroyed and some of our beloved dogs perished. We need your support. Please don't call or email right now as Dale, her family and staff are busy with the aftermath of this fire. Please see our donation options below (one-time or Refuge Sponsorships would be most helpful to us). Thank you for all of your support and generosity.

Update: 1:30PM   12/11/2014

Listen to Dale's Interview on Dec 11th (Thursday) with Hudson Valley News Radio.

Update: 3:30PM   12/10/2014

Dale is scheduled to do an interview on Hudson Valley News radio on Thursday morning at 8AM (Dec 11).

A Memorial page with photos of each of the dogs that perished in the fire has been created.

Also, here are a few items that are in short supply at the Refuge:

  • Canned Natural Dog Food (made in the USA)
  • Stuffing Free Toys
  • Rubber Toys

Update: 10:00AM   12/9/2014

Dale has posted an update on our home page.

So many if you have rushed in with kind words and gifts of support since our tragic fire. I thank you from the bottom of my heart. You've gotten all of us at Russell Refuge through the worst time in our history. You've also had questions, as I do. What happened? What's next? What about the surviving dogs? Read the Update

Update: 11:00PM   12/6/2014

It is with a heavy heart that we post the list of terriers that were lost in the fire. They were put to rest today in a quiet ceremony on the grounds of the Refuge surrounded by those that loved and cared for them. Rest in peace.

Little Jack, Big Jack, Buddy, Buddy 6, Rocky 5, Pork Chop, Avery, Sadie 2, Casey, Hope, Shine, Banshee and June

Update: 7:30PM   12/6/2014

Because of your tremendous generosity over the past 3 days, we no longer require additional tarps, bowls, broth, treats, etc. Donated goods have been arriving by car and truck and with the goods that are currently in transit plus what we have already received, we wanted to let everyone know as soon as possible. If we require any additional items we will post them on our site and on our Facebook page.

Monetary donations also continue to arrive and we are so touched and overwhelmed by your support. Dale, our staff and the Refuge terriers are very appreciative of everything that is being done to help us get through this crisis. Thank you.

Update: 8:00PM   12/5/2014

We wanted to share an update on today's activities in the aftermath of yesterday's fire. Electricity has been restored to the undamaged kennel runs (used for lighting and heating the dog houses). The tarps that were damaged by the fire were removed from the kennels and replaced with the donated tarps (thank you!). The staff spend the morning putting away the new supplies that came in and receiving deliveries. There is only so much cleanup that can be done until the inspector gives the us the OK.

Update: 7:00PM 12/4/2014

We would like to thank everyone for the thoughts, prayers, emails and donations today.

Our mailing address is displayed below. Thank you again for your support of the Russell Refuge.

Russell Refuge Sponsorships

Dale Mountan - President and founder of Russell Refuge

Monthly donations are a great way to help the Russell Refuge do even more to save lives and find forever homes for our terriers. As a Refuge sponsor, you'll make a difference by providing steady income to the Refuge, month after month... income that we can count on to do our work of providing shelter, food, veterinary care, love and protection.

When you sign up to be a Refuge sponsor, your contributions will be charged automatically via PayPal to your credit card, or deducted from your checking account, on an ongoing basis (once a month for 12 months). Your donations are tax deductible. You can select your level of giving, and if you wish, you can sponsor one of our terriers by writing his or her name above the subscription button. You may leave this area blank if you'd like the money to go where it is needed most.

Each sponsorship subscription lasts 12 months (i.e., $5 sponsorship = $5/month x 12 months = $60 total). We offer sponsorships in six denominations: $5, $10, $25, $50, $75 and $100.
