Welcome to Russell Rescue – Max!

This is little Max.  His owner could not take care of him any longer due to her health, so Russell Rescue took him.  Max was well loved for many years.  He is in foster care in Wernersville, Pennsylvania and is settling in well.  He’s a senior boy (14 years old) with cataracts.  Even though he’s elderly he still is spry and pretty active.  He is a typical senior dog.  He loves to sleep in his bed and relax inside.  Max also loves car rides with the windows down, and long walks through nature!  He is a big fan of treats and will even speak for them.  He is completely housebroken and does a good job of going potty outside.  He hasn’t been great with cats in the past, but other than that he is a very affectionate and loving dog!

Max will be available for adoption soon.  Watch for his post, including his adoption requirements, here on our website.  Anyone interested in adopting Max can apply here.  We don’t ship our dogs, so his adopter will need to travel to Pennsylvania to get him.  Welcome to the family Max!    We are going to find you the perfect home!

Hutch (aka Monty) – Happy Tails Update!

Hutch (now known as Monty) – Happy Tails Update!  Monty loves the pool!  As Erica (his human Mom stated) he swims like a seal.  He is a great swimmer.  Everything is fun and games for Monty.  Monty jumps in the pool with the family.  He gets the ball or toy and swims over to Tula (his sister/best friend) and brings her the ball.  Tula does not like getting into the pool.  Monty then gets out and does it again or sits on the step.  He is very busy this summer.  His humans have had multiple visitors and he has loved the attention…from long walks to extra cuddles.  He cannot wait until his big human brother Neil gets home from work so they can play chase.  Tula and Monty have another game.  She drops the ball from the landing, he gets it and brings it up the stairs and goes back down and they start all over again!

Happy Tails Monty!

Rescue Partnerships Save Lives!

Here at Russell Rescue, Inc., foster homes are our biggest need.  There are so many Jack Russells out there in need, and we are limited on how many we can help because of a shortage of committed foster homes.  Permian Basin Animal Advocates is a non-profit serving the Permian Basin area in Texas.  Bessie came along in their area needing help!  They stepped up with a foster home, and Russell Rescue, Inc. helped out with vetting.  Bessie was able to get a damaged eye removed and 5 infected teeth pulled.  She is feeling so much better!  Bessie was able to go home with her foster mom last week and is recovering.  

We wanted to say thank you SO much to Permian Basin Animal Advocates for helping to save little Bessie.  We may not have had a foster home available for Bessie, but the collaboration between our rescue groups still saved a JRT in need.  This is what rescue is all about: putting the animals in need first and thinking outside the box to save them and get them into loving forever homes!  We hope to report back soon with pics of Bessie living her best life in her forever home!

If you are able to foster a Jack Russell Terrier in need, please complete a volunteer form here.   Currently, we have volunteers located mostly in Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Iowa, Ohio, Kansas, Idaho and New England.  Russell Rescue covers all expenses, so all you need to worry about are the belly rubs and snuggles with your dog!  Read more about our organization here

Tex – Happy Tails!

Check out this amazing Happy Tails story written by Julie (loving Mom of Tex!)  We couldn’t be more thrilled for Tex!  He hit the jackpot!  Happy Tails Tex!

“It’s Official – we have a new Devlin!  Welcome to the family Tex!  We felt the Fourth of July was the perfect “Gotcha Day”.  Tex (13) arrived January 2, 2022, as a foster for Russell Rescue Inc..  He had severe dental disease.  He was unsure how to trust and love.  

Well, that’s all changed! 

Tex, fondly known as Mundo and Gumby, is now toothless with an appetite that rivals his senior brother Chip’s.  He shares a bed with his brother Bruno.  He and his sister Olive hang out.  He found his voice and joins in on the barking fests.  He displays frequent “Wilburisms”.  Most of all, he knows what love, security and trust mean. 

❤️ HE IS HOME ❤️

Happy Gotcha Day sweet Tex. We love you! (7/4/22) Thank you,  Russell Rescue for bringing him into our lives.

If you are unsure about adopting a senior, don’t be! They are amazing and love with their whole heart! ❤️”
