We Need You!

Russell Rescue, Inc. is an all-volunteer organization dedicated to placing unwanted or abandoned Jack Russell Terriers. We have coordinators throughout the United States that arrange for emergency rescues and gather information designed to match appropriate dogs in suitable permanent and temporary homes. Volunteers are needed for everything from transporting dogs to fostering dogs. Our greatest need is for foster homes.
