In Memoriam

The Russell Refuge suffered a devastating fire the morning of December 4, 2014. The kennel was destroyed and some of our beloved dogs perished. The Refuge is located in Rhinebeck, New York (Dutchess county). It provides temporary shelter to Jack Russell Terriers in the northeastern United States who are no longer wanted or have been placed in public shelters.

The outer kennels were untouched by the fire and the 17 dogs in them remain fine despite the shock of the fire. The 12 dogs we were able to rescue have been safely treated and boarded at Rhinebeck Animal Hospital. We go there to see them, walk them and console them daily.

We still believe in Hope. You all remember sweet blind Hope found as a stray in Yonkers who perished in Thursday's fire. Well we honor her and the others who perished as well as any being that has suffered cruelty or neglect by carrying on. We will prevail.

The following are the names and photos of the 13 dogs who perished in the fire. May they rest in peace.
