June is all about our big annual Jack/Chow fundraiser ... and some fun-raising. (Yeah, we said it.)
We had joy, we had fun, we had a wonderful month under the sun. There were fun days and miracle adoption days. What more could we ask for?
April was another relatively-calm month. (We were storing up for a big summer.) One of our favorite little guys was adopted after years of waiting and our cornhole champs continued their winning streak for the dogs.
Spring always arrives with great anticipation at the ranch. The days get longer and warmer, and the dogs absolutely love the weather. We typically have a Spring Vol Day to remove the plastic from the kennels, but this year, we had an extra-special "fun day."
February was relatively quiet across the board ... which is always good during the cold. It's challenging enough to take the dogs in and out of the kennels everyday to enjoy the sunshine and to stay warm at night.
It's that time again: To look back on the year and highlight the events that impacted the rescue--and the dogs--as a whole. We said it in 2012, 2013 and 2014, and we'll say it again in 2015 ... This year, we helped rescue and re-home more dogs than we have since the days Jimmy was with us and it was more of a full-time gig than us "duct taping" things together. Woo-hoo!
They don't call her Boudica, the Warrior Queen for nothing! She came, she saw, and in the final hours of our first Year of the Jack Calendar Photo Contest, she "conquered" the top fundraising spot! This beautiful senior will now be the featured photo on our calendar cover and have her own month inside. She'll also be bringing home a lot of toys and treats with a PetSmart gift card.
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.
