FOSTERS AND ADOPTERS, PLEASE READ BEFORE YOU APPLY TO ADOPT A PET FROM DOG RESCUE INC, dba RUFF HOUSE RESCUE, A NON-PROFIT RESCUE AGENCY

To adopt a pet, Ruff House Rescue requires:

1. Application (on our website: www.ruffhouserescue.org) - you must be 18 years or older and the homeowner or renter of the home to apply

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Heather, a Freeport Jack Russell Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Jack Russell Terrier for sale in Freeport, or seeking a Jack Russell Terrier dog from a breeder in Freeport.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Freeport already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Freeport breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Jack Russell Terrier breeders who help with Jack Russell Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Freeport paves the way for another one to be saved.
