Every dog deserves a life free from abuse and neglect.

Just 4 Jacks Ranch & Sanctuary is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) northern breed rescue organization dedicated to saving the lives of at-risk dogs in high-kill shelters and other tragic situations.

The Huskies, Malamutes, and mixed breeds taken into our sanctuary decompress in a safe and loving environment. We rehabilitate and re-home them with a suitable family for life where possible. When rehoming isn’t an option, the dogs are free to live their best lives in the safety of our beautiful estate in the Rocky Mountains.

We care for over 75 dogs whose lives we saved, often just moments from euthanasia. They are provided with high-quality food to restore them back to optimal health and we ensure they have all medical treatments needed to flourish. Our dogs truly get the royal treatment they so deserve!

We were founded by Drew Renkewitz and are run by a small team of volunteers working tirelessly to save as many dogs as possible. Our goal is to further our impact by growing our network, reach, and fundraising. We are thankful for our dedicated community of volunteers, rescuers, rescue partners, vets, trainers, vendors, and suppliers.

We could not do this alone.

Our mission

Taking in dogs set for euthanasia is an acute issue that we focus on. The truth is, however, we cannot rescue our way out of the growing shelter crisis in the US. Many shelters are overcrowded, underfunded, and mismanaged. The vast majority of dogs taken into shelters are not spayed/neutered. This must stop.

We are passionate about educating the public on how rescue dogs enrich the lives of the individuals and families that take them in.

We want to put an end to the killing of shelter dogs and we will not stop until this is a reality. Our vision is a world where no animal is killed for space, medical problems, or behavioral issues.

Support us in our mission to allow every dog the opportunity to thrive.
