The Russell Refuge provides shelter to Jack Russell Terriers in the northeastern United States that are no longer wanted by their owners or have been placed in public shelters. Dogs that cannot be re-homed because of health or behavior issues are welcomed to the Refuge to live in peace for the rest of their lives. Adoptable dogs are placed in carefully screened homes. Our organization is staffed by volunteers who help with dog care, transport, donations, and our website. The Russell Refuge, Inc is a not for profit 501(c)(3) corporation. All donations to the Refuge are tax deductible.
