J & Co. Rescue gives every dog in our care the medical treatment needed to make a full recovery & available for adoption. However, because we take in such medically fragile dogs & dogs requiring hospice care, a small percentage have passed away or were humanely euthanized to end their suffering. This percentage is probably higher than the average rescue, but many of our dogs are in a very critical state when leaving the shelter.
8% of the dogs adopted were <1 year old
92 % of the dogs adopted were >1 year old
100% of the dogs we rescued in 2016 came from high intake/inner city shelters or were owner surrenders
66 dogs were in foster homes in 2016
7 dogs continue to receive medical support within their hospice foster home
38 volunteers opened their home to foster a dog in 2016
49 active volunteers (including the 38 Foster homes)
8,240 hours were donated by volunteers (this # does not include the time donated by foster families with their care of their foster dog)
A total of $38,400 was raised in 2016 through grants, fundraising events & direct donations toward the care of medically urgent dogs. The generosity of our donors and the success of our fundraisers allows us to continue saving the dogs most in need.
