September 2020 Update from the JRTRO

We’ve been nominated for best rescue

The JRTRO has been nominated as one of the ten best rescues in Toronto! Please help us make it to the best rescue in Toronto by voting here by October 11.

The JRTRO Silent Auction Deadline is September 30, 2020!

Start bidding here. This is our main fundraising event this year, since we had to cancel the Rescue Roundup. Please check out the exquisite items and make your bids! Our target goal for the Silent Auction is to raise $3000 to help cover the costs of veterinary care. We have a dog in foster care right now, Biker, who is scheduled for orthopaedic surgery, and we desperately need to raise money for this surgery. Biker is currently in a great deal of pain due to a severe luxating patella, and he cannot walk or sit properly. He’s only 4 years old and was given up by his owners. Please help us help Biker by bidding on the fantastic merchandise at our Silent Auction, and get something fabulous for yourself (or a great Christmas gift for someone)!

Adoptable JRTs

Congratulations on your decision to adopt a Jack Russell Terrier. This wonderful breed is often misunderstood and underestimated, and too many of them end up abandoned or neglected. Jacks aren’t for everyone but, with the right home, their fierce loyalty and amazing character will shine through.

You can make a difference to a JRT in need.

Donations are always needed and gratefully received. Thank you for helping to save a Jack.

Save a Senior JRT Campaign

Meet Mimi – she is an eleven year old JRT with Cushings Disease who was dumped at a shelter by owners who had her her entire life. She is now safe with us in foster care and her medical needs are all being cared for.

Jack Russell Terrier Rescue Ontario Inc. (JRTRO) has a long history of saving senior dogs, often with many health issues. Help us raise $1,000 in December, and help us recruit ten new foster volunteers willing and able to foster a senior dog. To make a donation to this campaign, go to the Canada Helps page, and select the SAVE A SENIOR 2019 Christmas Campaign.
