Update on Russell Rescue CA:

On this Giving Tuesday, Russell Rescue CA wants to thank every single one of you that supported Russell Rescue CA and made it possible to rescue hundreds of Russell Terriers over the years from shelters throughout California; take in owner surrenders, and assist other rescues. We couldn’t have done any of this without our donors, volunteers, friends, and family that made it possible to save, transport, do home checks, and foster these pups until they were able to find their forever home.

Russell Rescue CA was established in 2014 and was the oldest, active 501(c)(3) breed-specific Russell Rescue in California. We all shared a passion for the Russell Terrier breed.

In September of 2021, our President and Founder, Lynn Bonham suffered a brain aneurysm and a traumatic brain injury. Lynn is a fighter. She’s tough and independent, just like the Russell Terrier breed that she loves so passionately. Although she continues to reach milestones with her physical therapy, we found that without our fierce and loyal leader, Russell Rescue CA could not continue, and the Board of Directors has had to make a very difficult decision to dissolve Russell Rescue CA.

As lifelong Russell Terrier enthusiasts, we encourage continued support of the breed through our sister organizations:
