Rusty's Story...
Please head down to the El Cajon Animal Shelter and gaze into the biggest, warmest brown eyes you'll ever see! Please meet our precious and loving boy named RUSTY. Rusty is a Jack Russell Terrier mix, and he's approximately one year old. Rusty is a little overwhelmed by shelter life, but we see him gaining confidence each day. Once he's in the yard, he enjoys exploring. More than anything, however, Rusty loves to sit in your lap for a snuggle. Rusty gets along nicely with other dogs, and he would make an excellent house (or apartment) dog. Being on the small side, and having a sensitive nature, Rusty would do best in a home with older, considerate children. The shelter staff is fairly certain Rusty is house trained, but they're still watching him to be sure. Please visit Rusty in kennel #36, then ask our helpful staff if you and Rusty can get better acquainted in our lovely play yard.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rusty, a El Cajon 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 El Cajon, or seeking a Jack Russell Terrier dog from a breeder in El Cajon.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in El Cajon 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 El Cajon 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 El Cajon paves the way for another one to be saved.
