The JABCECC believes that every animal has a right to live, not just as a species, but as an individual.
Currently, the JABCECC is focusing on the rescue of primitive dogs, mainly New Guinea Singing dogs. The founders of the JABCECC started their passion for these dogs with the rescue of Luxx and Archie. They made a commitment to ensure a large portion of the center is dedicated to identifying singers in need of rescue, obtaining singers from the hands of exotic breeders, identifying new potential foster and forever families for these unique dogs, and educating the public about them and the requirements for pet ownership. In the year we have been up and running, we managed to participate and help secure the rescue of 5 NGSDs both within the US and internationally. We did not accomplish this alone but with the help of the New Guinea Singing Conservation Society and other NGSD conservationists these dogs are currently being loved!
LUCI and VONN (Luxxy's parents)
We were alerted that an older singer was up for auction at an exotic breeder auction. The auction was occurring across the country from us. Our friend, Victoria, who informed us of this special guy, offered to bid on him for us and help transport him to foster care. We quickly got on social media and the phone and started contacting our primitive dog friends to see who could foster him. Of course, there was a hurricane on the way and it was about the hit the route Mingo needed to be transported!! Through the primitive dog community, we managed to rescue this sweet singer and place him in the home of a long time New Guinea Singing dog conservationist and lover. This is a photo of Mingo the evening he was welcomed into his new home!! A very happy singer and a very loved singer. It is why we do what we do!!!

Mingo in his new forever home, loving and being loved!! Success stories like this take a village to make happen and require the sacrifice, commitment, and passion of so many beautiful humans. The reward is never financial, it is in this picture that motivates us to do what we do! If you want to help us, help them - join our canid family!!
The two singers with no names:
Once again, our friend, Victoria, informed us of two singers up for auction on a secret exotic auction page on Facebook. They were being posted as a breeding pair and we knew we needed to get these two singers out of the hands of exotic breeders and into the safe hands of NGSD conservationists. Once again, we got on the phone and social media and connected with our singer friends and primitive dog friends. We received the support of the New Guinea Singing Dog Conservation Society and funding to bid on these two singers. We went quickly to work, bidding on them and when we felt all hope was lost, Victoria saved the day and found out that one of the rules were violated and we WON the bidding. The excitement was felt across the country!!! Now, we needed foster care for them until we could identify a permanent placement.... and of course, they were across the country. Our friend, Victoria, stepped in once again and agreed to secure their transport and place them in foster care with a mutual friend. From there, the angels in the NGSD world, Deneen, Sue, and Gayle jumped in and secured a placement for them. We found out that these two singers had NEVER been given names... NEVER BEEN GIVEN NAMES!!! This broke our hearts!!! The female also had two litters of puppies (she is only 3) and neither litter survived! Rescuing singers from the hands of exotic breeders is critical for their genetic integrity and to ensure these pups don't find themselves in shelters because of irresponsible people. The commitment and sacrifices each and every person who participates in rescue makes is only reinforced by the few success stories we have in the rescue world. While we focus on rescuing primitive dogs, the number of homes that can accept these dogs are limited. If you are interested in fostering or adopting a NGSD into your home, please contact us. We are always looking for responsible and capable people to join our community - as it takes a village!!!
