Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

Jack Russell Terrier Rescue Ontario is a non-profit referral organization dedicated to fostering, finding & placing Jack Russell Terriers in new homes in Ontario, Canada.

These are Jack Russell Terriers that have either been abandoned, mistreated/abused or owner relinquished. We also provide ongoing educational activities for the public about the breed and its temperament, characteristics, and handling.

All Jack Russell Terriers are spayed or neutered as required prior to being placed in new homes.

About Our Rescue Group:

We are a team of extremely dedicated volunteers devoted to fostering and re-homing of rescued and relinquished Jack Russell Terriers.

Our Adoption Process:

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 placed by us have vaccines up to date, spay/neuter, rabies and a general health check. Should a dog have a medical issue that is diagnosed by our vet it will be treated and disclosed in the adoption process.

If you don’t feel comfortable filling out our application and have any specific questions about our adoption process, our available dogs or our application, please feel free to contact us at and we will do our best to get back to you within 72 hours.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
