Position: Volunteer Foster Parents for Foster Dogs
Organization: Jack Russell Terrier Rescue Ontario Inc.
Location: Toronto, Ontario

JRTRO is a completely volunteer-run registered charity with the mandate to take in abandoned, abused and homeless Jack Russell Terriers and get them started on a new life by ensuring they are healthy and vetted prior to adoption, and that they are adopted to the best possible homes.

We are looking for new people to join us to help with this life saving work!

We have no shelter, every dog that we take in goes into a foster home. Many of the dogs have come from very poor circumstances and require training by people willing to work with challenged dogs to increase their self confidence, learn what are appropriate behaviours and to trust humans again.

Foster Parent Duties and Responsibilities

  • Provide a temporary home for dogs needing safety and refuge from abuse, neglect or euthanasia
  • Provide love, support and training to these dogs as if they were your own
  • Must be willing to work with these dogs to ensure they are adoptable
  • Provide photos and information about the dog to the adoption team and for posting on the website
  • Work with the adoption team to find the best possible home for the dog
  • Length of foster care varies with the needs of the dogs and when we receive an appropriate adoption application
  • Positions are required immediately

How to apply:

Please visit and complete the foster application form to be eligible to foster dogs
