We just wanted to give a very special shout out to Sweet Cream Co. of Columbia, South Carolina. They recently surprised us with an amazing donation check of $315 for the sales of their doggie pops in March and April.
Our little lamb Barkley has moved from his medical foster home to his new (possibly permanent) foster home. Yay! For those wondering if fostering before adoption is a possibility, absolutely! We actually prefer this route to adoption. It’s a great experience for the dogs and the adopters all around.
Last night was our 3rd Annual Paw Over Some Jack and Chow Down fundraiser, our “big” fundraiser with Chap's Chow Rescue at Plants Creative Landscapes' warehouse in Decatur. Thank you to everyone who came out (despite the heat) to support the rescues. Everyone was having such a great time, we even went beyond our usual 9 o’clock cutoff time. Thank you to all of our sponsors, volunteers and, of course, attendees for making this another great year that went to the dogs … literally!
Join us for our 3rd annual fundraiser for Chap’s Chow Rescue and Georgia Jack Russell Rescue, Adoption & Sanctuary this Saturday, June 13, in Decatur. It's an event not to be missed! Food, drinks, live music, silent auction, raffles, wine wall and cool giveaways.
What a fabulous JRT Fun Day we had at the ranch Saturday with the Dogwood Jack Russell Terrier Club. All of the dogs (including some of our current and former rescues) had a blast participating in the lure course, steeplechase and barn hunt activities. Thanks to everyone for making it such a fabulous time.
Want to escape to the Great Smoky Mountains for a couple of nights with your dog(s)? Even better, want to do it for the possible price of a $5 donation, which goes directly to the rescue? Well, here's your opportunity! We are thrilled to announce the return of our annual cabin raffle. A couple of our amazing volunteers/supporters are once again donating a two-night stay at their luxury cabin in the Great Smoky Mountains.
Congrats, Team Russell, on taking third place the corn hole tournament! $1,000 for the rescue! It was some tough competition, but Brad and Wonder Donna pulled us through to the semifinals. Woohoo!
Are you up for a Challenge? On May 4, CrowdRise will kick off a special fundraising challenge for animal shelters/rescues and other groups focused on benefiting companion animals. They are giving away a $50k(!) grant for the team who raises the most during the challenge, which ends June 5. There are also offering incredibly generous grants for second-fifth places, as well as bonus challenges and prizes along the way that total over $25K. Holy vet-bills-paid, Batman!
What an absolutely fabulous day yesterday was at the Rescue Ranch. Team Russell showed up bright and early to prepare for a day full of special guests and festivities.
