Meet this playful furbaby, named Jack! He only weighs 28 lbs., and you can count this little guy to do all the leg work for you! He absolutely loves fetch, so the better your throw, the further he’ll go! Jack is about 2 years old, he is really sweet, and perfect for an active or not so active adopter! He is just as happy running after a ball as he is alongside you!

Another popular hobby of Jack’s is playing in the water hose. Yup! That’s right…this little guy loves getting wet and wild! Aside from being playful and great with humans, Jack can get along with anyone! He is good with cats and other dogs.

Jack is heartworm positive, but RARE will cover the treatment with our veterinarian at no extra cost to the adopter or foster. Heartworms are treatable and dogs can live healthy, fulfilling, and amazing lives after treatment. Please don't let this stop you from giving an animal a good home that it deserves and needs so desperately. We will be happy to answer any questions that you may have.


Please visit for foster and adoption applications or for additional information.

All of our pets are or will be spayed/neutered, up to date on all vaccines prior to adoption. Please complete the application on our website and we will call you to answer any questions you may have.

Our adoption fees not only help the animal being adopted, but they also help to cover heartworm treatments and other treatable ailments that many animals, that would otherwise be euthanized, need to be made available for adoption.

Thank you for choosing to adopt, foster, or aid in the rescue efforts of RARE!

About Rural Animal Rescue Effort (RARE)

About Our Rescue Group...

Rural Animal Rescue Effort (RARE) is an organization that is dedicated to saving animals in rural areas, mainly in 'pounds' and shelters, both high-kill and no-kill. There tends to be a higher overpopulation rate in rural areas due to lack of animal ordinances and alteration to prevent unwanted litters. Many animals are 'dumped' on country roads left to parish or end up at the local pound or animal shelter if they have an empty kennel. Many of these animals have a limited number of days before they are euthanized. In addition to placing animals in foster and adoptive homes, networking with rescues to assist in placement and adoption of animals, RARE also performs fundraisers for spay/neuters and other vetting to prevent further overpopulation and promote quality of life for the animals we save.
