About Jameson Animal Rescue Ranch
Founded in 2014 by David and Monica Stevens (proprietors of 750 Wines), Jameson Animal Rescue Ranch (JARR) is a 501(c)(3) registered nonprofit organization that is transforming the way we think about animal welfare and advocacy. Seeking to engender systemic change in the outdated industry of animal rescue, which suffers from a significant lack of transparency and accountability, JARR is committed to ending animal hunger, cruelty, and overpopulation. To do so, JARR offers a variety of programs and services to stem the tide of animal deaths from euthanasia; and solve some of the most pressing problems regarding animal abandonment, maltreatment, and negative environmental impact. JARR also collaborates with and acts as a liaison for various animal welfare groups locally and statewide.

This past weekend, Jameson Animal Rescue Ranch partnered with Spay Neuter Imperative Project (SNIP) and Pet Food Express to spread the word about the importance of spaying and neutering.
Did you know?
- Just one female dog and her offspring can produce a staggering 67,000 puppies in only six years.
- In seven years, one female cat and her offspring can produce an incredible 370,000 kittens!
Reasons for Spay/Neuter: Prevents millions of animals from being born that would otherwise suffer from neglect, cruelty or face euthanasia.
The medical benefits:
- Spaying helps prevent uterine infections and breast tumors, which are malignant or cancerous in about 50 percent of dogs and 90 percent of cats.
- Neutering prevents testicular cancer and some prostate problems.
And behavioral benefits:
- Your spayed female animal won't go into heat and present behavioral issues.
- Your neutered male animal will be less likely to roam away from home.
- Your neutered male animal may be better behaved.
