Before moving to FL, my husband and I had 2 rescue dogs that died. We were ready to adopt an small Havanese. After searching the internet, I came across JBAR and was very pleased that they fostered the dogs rather than cage them. It was important for me to have a dog that was in a home because the foster parent knew the dog well. When we found our dog, my husband and I fell in love with him. We were willing to drive and hour to get him. After speaking with the foster mom, she was honest enough to let me know that she wasn't comfortable to release him, yet. We continued to talk until she felt it was ok for us to bring him home. She was a bit nervous not knowing if we knew how to handle him. When we took him home, he jump on my lap as we drove away. Both the foster mom and I knew it was a forever home for Corey. We were aware that rescue dogs can have issues, mostly due to fear and trust. All they need is tons of love and patience, like little children. A year later, Corey is the best dog we have ever had. He is loving, funny, super smart and so obedient. He is always by our side and makes sure he knows where my husband and I are at all the times. I would recommend JBAR at a heart beat. It all start at the beginning with their love for the dogs.

We decided we wanted to rescue a third dog and we found a beautiful female jack russell/ chihuahua mix named Onya. She was found in Miami and had some scars. You could tell she had been through a lot. Several of JBAR's fosters worked with her for months to get her to be less aggressive. We finally set up a meet and greet with our other 2 dogs one weekend at one of the adoption events. While at first we weren't sure, they spent over an hour with us off to the side until all the dogs warmed up to each other. We decided to give it a shot and are glad we did. 6 months later she is a happy member of the pack. All she needed was some love. It feels so good to rescue an animal! The application process was extensive but you can tell they really care. They even followed up several times just to see how Onya is doing. Highly recommended!
My husband and I were looking to rescue. We were new to FL and joined JBAR. They found a mini schnauzer for us! She was found as a stray in Miami. She was sick and needed a few surgeries, as well as lots of love. We fostered her first. We worked closely with JBAR and got her appointments and surgeries and nursed her back to health. 2 months later she was healthy & able to be adopted and we couldn't be happier as her parents. Now 8 months later, Mila is so happy in our home. She has flourished and we love how she's fit in perfectly with us. She is a perfect fit and can't thank JBAR enough. They work tirelessly for the well being of these unfortunate animals. Thank you for finding our Mila for us and all that you do!
