Jack Russell Terrier Rescue Ontario Inc. (JRTRO) is a non-profit referral organization dedicated to providing temporary shelter, veterinary medical care and other care for stray, abandoned, abused, injured, neglected and surrendered Jack Russell Terriers in need of human assistance and care for the purpose of finding appropriate new homes for the dogs.
The dogs are assessed for temperament, medical conditions, and other issues arising from their experiences, and placed in one of the organization’s network of foster homes on a short-term basis and after a period of adjustment they are made available for adoption in forever homes.
All Jack Russell Terriers are spayed or neutered, as required, and their vaccinations are updated prior to being placed in new homes.
It is our mission to provide ongoing educational opportunities for the public about the Jack Russell Terrier, its temperament, characteristics and handling as well as activities that promote the health of Jack Russell Terriers and other dogs.

Some of our success stories
An inseparable bond alreadyIt’s hard to know what has happened to these little creatures in their travels; we have discovered that some things upset Cocoa and are working to ensure she always feels safe and over time she will hopefully feel confident with every new situation she encounters. We are grateful that the universe sent Cocoa our way and it is our promise that she’ll be safe and happy forever.Cocoa
The first weekend Artie spent with me, I realized I was falling for him.His transparent expressions of love reminded me of the dog we had just lost for he too had decided early on that I was his person. Artie is an amazing dog, full of energy and fun and so much love. Perhaps he knows he has been given a second chance. Perhaps he appreciates that these humans will go to the ends of the earth to figure out what plagues him and fix it for him. What I’m sure he doesn’t know, is that while I thought I was saving him, he has been saving me. Isn’t that what the best dogs do?Artie
