Our Featured Pet...
Who We Are
Russell Refuge is a not for profit organization dedicated to placing unwanted or abandoned Jack Russell Terriers. Since a large number
of our dogs come from New York city or Long Island, our shelter is
conveniently located just two hours north in Rhinebeck, NY.
The majority of our dogs are unwanted simply for being Jack Russells
by nature and behavior. We strive to educate and offer counseling to those who wish to keep their beloved pets. The terriers in our care are
given the love and attention they deserve in an effort to help them trust
again. They also receive all necessary medical care, including spaying
and neutering, prior to adoption. Homes are carefully selected from
screened applicants, and the future of our dogs is ensured by a policy
which requires that they be returned to us for any reason, at any time
throughout the life of the dog if they cannot be kept by the adopting party.
The Russell Refuge does not ship dogs and requires an in-person visit once your application is approved. All donations go directly to the care of the dogs and are greatly needed and appreciated
