Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our mission is to rescue homeless Boston Terriers either from shelters or from individuals who are no longer able to provide a loving home for their pet due to circumstances beyond their control. We are an all-volunteer, non-profit group dedicated to the rescuing Boston Terriers regardless of the health or age of the dog. We are dedicated to educating people about the breed so that they can make an educated decision when deciding to adopt a Boston Terrier. We are committed to making sure all dogs accepted into our rescue receive full Veterinary care and will only adopt out dogs that have been altered (spayed/neutered), received all vaccinations and all health issues have been addressed to include being heartworm negative. All adoption applicants are thoroughly screened using our online adoption application that includes checking vet and personal references as well as a home visit. We promote responsible pet ownership!

All Bostons that are accepted into the BTRNT Foster Program are thoroughly vetted, heartworm tested, spayed/neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated. We will not turn away a Boston as long as we have available foster space regardless of age of health. All Bostons deserve a loving home.

We are not a shelter and do not have visiting hours. All dogs in the BTRNT Foster Program are fostered in loving private homes. All adoptions require an adoption contract to ensure the dog is not rehomed after adoption. If the adoption does not work out for any reason, the dog must be returned to the rescue.

We rely soley on donations, fundraising and adoption fees to carry out our mission.

We have successfully adopted over 1000 Boston Terriers, French Bulldogs and mixes of each to loving homes over the past 18 years. We have successfully grown our active foster list to over 100 fosters that help us rescue dogs in need in the past 15 years.
