JCCARE is a non profit 501c3 organization made up of volunteers dedicated to finding homes for abused and abandoned Japanese Chin. We are not affiliated with the national breed club but operate completely on our own. These dogs are not here because they are bad. Some were very much loved and pampered family pets and are here because of unfortunate situations like a move or divorce or death of their owner. Still others are here because the owners did not research the breed before buying on impulse and decided much too late that they shed too much, or need too much time or attention , or even that they don't match the furniture anymore, or any number of reasons that should have been thought of before bringing a new dog home. Some of the dogs do have health problems. Some have been brought about by irresponsible breeding practices. Still others are the result of neglect or abuse. These dogs still need and deserve love and a second chance to be part of a warm, loving family. This is a chance some of these dogs never got before coming into rescue. When a dog is turned over to JCCARE, he is taken to the vet for a complete check up including heartworm check, shots, worming, and spay/neuter. Any health problems are treated before being placed into a new adoptive home. JCCARE does not sell dogs. We do, however, ask for a donation which helps to fund our program and pays for vet expenses and allows us to continue our work in saving other Japanese Chins. The adoption fee of $250 - 300 helps to cover these expenses. A medical fee of $50 is sometimes asked when a particular dogs medical expenses are excessive. We get a variety of ages in the program, however, most are adults. We occasionally get puppies, but not very often. Males outnumber females, however, all dogs are spayed or neutered before being placed into an adoptive home. Sometimes people contact us who have strong preferences about age, sex and color of the dog. The more open you are about these things, the more likely we are to find a suitable dog for you. If you do have very strong preferences, a rescue may not be the right dog for you.
