Facts about Sparky

  • Breed: Jack Russell Terrier
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 9888683

His best qualities are his looks, his ability to snuggle you no matter how small of a spot, and he can be active when he wants to be. He loves tennis balls and running around the yard. In his foster home they have 2 other dogs, a boy and a girl who he enjoys playing and snuggling with. He also loves to eat! You wouldn’t think due to his small size, but feeding time is one of his favorite times of the day. He will try and eat the other dogs meals if they leave it unattended or if they leave any leftovers. He prefers when someone is home and wants to be by your side. Sparky gets nervous when you leave. He does not like to be crated but will if necessary. Sparky would do best in a home with someone at home most of the time as he loves his humans.  Overall, he is a good dog. He has never had an issue with getting along with another dog, just the normal small dog complex! He loves love and when his little nub of a tail starts wagging it’ll melt your heart.

Sparky is a 6 year old Jack Russell mix.  If you'd like to meet Sparky, email us at as he's in foster care.  He's neutered, up to date on vaccines and microchipped.


About Colony Cats (& dogs)

About Our Rescue Group...

Colony Cats is an all-volunteer, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose primary mission is to address cat overpopulation in central Ohio through public awareness and spay/neuter efforts. Since 2002, our organization has facilitated spay or neuter of over 6,324 animals.

Specialized help for feral, stray and abandoned cats is a core element of our programs. We assist compassionate caregivers who are feeding and watching over homeless cats by providing TNR (trap-neuter-return) and other support services including food, shelter, vaccines and additional vet care for injuries/illness, as well as educational resources.
We also have a network of foster homes for friendly, adoptable cats and kittens - as well as dogs and puppies that we encounter while assisting cats - that have been rescued.

Come Meet Our Pets...

The Colony Cats Adoption Center is a completely different experience in 'sheltering' homeless companion cats. While most of our felines still live in foster homes, we now can bring them out into the public with our cage free adoption center. Cats can do what comes naturally- jump, run, climb, and play; but only until they find their way into your heart and home.

We have pledged not only to make this a completely different experience for the cats, but also for the public.
While we strive to make the adoption center as beautiful as possible, the cats within our care remain our top priority. Our firm belief as an organization is that every homeless cat deserves a chance because every cat matters. We hope that you'll come by and share with us our vision.
