Double J Dog Ranch, Inc.


To rescue, re-home or offer sanctuary to double merle Aussie's and other special needs dogs in jeopardy of euthanasia. Offer hospice care as an alternative to euthanasia for dogs at municipal shelters. Educate the public about the importance of spay/neuter, unethical breeding practices, and what wonderful pets animals with special needs are.

After all, they don't know they're any different....... 

Cristene Justus is the founder of Double J Dog Ranch, Inc. She shares her 50 acres and home in Hauser Lake, Idaho with the animals. The dogs experience a home environment vs. institutional living. They receive care from a dedicated team of professionals, including health care, nutrition and behavior. DJDR are firm believers that to help ensure the successful placement of blind or deaf dogs they must be trained in basic obedience. Therefore, all of the dogs are trained in the appropriate manner (hand signals or touch) prior to being adopted. Of course this would not all be possible without the support of their volunteers, board of directors, adopters and financial supporters.
