Year in Review 2015: March

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."

Year in Review 2015: February

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.

Year in Review 2015: January

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!

We Have a Winner!

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.
I WILL get that lure next time!

JRT Fun Day in May

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.

Team Russell Takes 3rd

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!
