Toronto, ON | Servicing Southern Ontario
Jack Russell Terrier Rescue Ontario (JRTRO) is a non-profit referral organization dedicated to fostering, finding and placing Jack Russell Terriers (or “almost Jacks” aka Jack mixes) in new homes.These are Jack Russell Terriers that have either been abandoned, mistreated, abused or owner relinquished.
All Jack Russell Terriers are spayed or neutered, as required, prior to being placed in new homes. They are fostered throughout Southern Ontario by volunteers who open their homes until a permanent one can be found.
If you think a Jack Russell Terrier is right for you, fill out an application form.
Please ensure that all adults in the house are agreeable with the adoption of a Jack, that your children respect dogs and are all over the age of eight.
An adoption fee of $300.00 for dogs over one year and $350.00 for puppies is required at the time of adoption. Puppies who are too young to be spayed/neutered are placed with an additional $200 fee. This fee is refunded to you when when JRTRO receives a copy of the spay/neuter certificate for your dog.
Senior dogs, age nine and over are available for a lower adoption fee of $95.
All dogs have vaccines up to date, spay/neuter, rabies and a general health check. Should a dog have a medical issue that is diagnosed by the rescue’s vet, it will be treated and disclosed in the adoption process.
JRTRO places dogs in Ontario, Canada and on a few occasions, they have placed dogs in other provinces (provided the adoptee is able to come and meet the dog). If you are in another province, you can find your province’s rescue contact on the JRTCC (Jack Russell Terrier rescue page or if you are in the United States you can find your state’s rescue contact on the JRTCA rescue page.
