August Museum Trials Cancelled

Unfortunately the August Trial is canceled. Restrictions have tightened in Pennsylvania as well as other nearby states.

This is a difficult year for all, we truly appreciate all the hard work our volunteer team has done and the donations. We will have the trial as soon as the environment is safe to do so. Please stay well and continue to support the museum – it’s going to be a tough year to keep things going. We will post any updates on rescheduling as we know them.

Thank you!!

homesteadWe are happy to report that the Benefit Trial scheduled has been rescheduled for August 8-9 at the same location in Littlestown, PA. This is the major fund-raiser for the Museum’s annual operating expenses, so we truly hope that many of you will be able to attend and consider sponsoring a class!  Please remember that the Museum operates ENTIRELY on donations. If you are can make a donation it would be greatly appreciated! This year is going to be particularly difficult of course, and we understand it is a difficult time for many. We will all get through it, and although our plans are delayed, they are still strong.
 
We are working closely with the JRTCA towards purchasing a property that will permanently house the Museum. This is very important – we cannot expand and fulfill our mission without space to do so, and space that will be a permanent investment and prevent more costly moves in the future. Our efforts are delayed due to the problems in the country currently.
 
While things are quiet, we are not asleep! We are still working for the preservation of the true Jack Russell Terrier!
 
Thank you!

April 2020 Museum News

With the COVID-19 virus keeping most of the country on lock-down we are forced to consider whether or not to cancel our June Benefit Trial scheduled for June 6-7. The decision has not been made at this time; we will make the decision in early May. This is the major fund-raiser for the Museum’s annual operating expenses, so we truly hope we can proceed. If not, we will reschedule for later in the year.  Please remember that the Museum operates ENTIRELY on donations. If you are able to make a donation it would be greatly appreciated!

We are continuing to fulfill our purpose of EDUCATION to the general public and continuing to expand the web site and the Museum itself.

March 2020 Museum News

Jack Russell Terrier Museum - March 2020 NewsThe Museum is now approaching three years since its founding in July 2017. Thanks to your support we have managed to build a good foundation, and the Museum is up and running and has a lot to see. It will be greatly expanded in the years to come.
 
Please remember that we operate ENTIRELY on donations. We will be holding our main Benefit Trial fundraiser June 6-7 in Littlestown, PA. Please join us for a fun terrier weekend – if you are unable to attend, please sponsor a trial class. We hope to raise enough funds to cover our operating expenses through the rest of this year.
 
Our main focus this year will be to fulfill our purpose of EDUCATION to the general public and continuing to expand the web site and the Museum itself. We will be working closely with the JRTCA towards purchasing a property that will permanently house the Museum. This is very important – we cannot expand and fulfill our mission without space to do so, and space that will be a permanent investment and prevent more costly moves in the future. We have just about filled up all of the space that we are now renting, and it is a small portion of what we want to display.
 
PLEASE SUPPORT THE HOMESTEAD! We need to have money for a down payment to make this dream become a reality. We did it three years ago, we made the Museum a reality, we can do it again and put a permanent roof over our heads!
 
You can make a donation on line here at this website, or you can send it in to the central office at 16925 York Road, Suite B, Monkton, MD 21111. Your donations are tax deductible, and no amount is too large or too small. We want to make this happen THIS YEAR! Your support will help us get there!

Ailsa Crawford

Ailsa CrawfordIt is with a heavy heart that we must let all of our JRTCA family know that we lost a wonderful lady, Ailsa Crawford, founder and President Emeritus of the JRTCA.

Ailsa dedicated many years of her life to building a club and registry to protect this little white dog that we all love. Above all she would want to know that all lovers of the true Jack Russell Terrier will carry on her dedication to this terrier, and protect it for years to come.  She has left a great legacy.  Everyone please say a prayer and a thank you to the best friend of the Jack Russell and the JRTCA – she will always be remembered and sorely missed. 

Funeral services will be held on August 27th in Gladstone, NJ.  Please contact us for additional information.
