Waiting 'till the last minute to call a rescue is NOT a good idea for the dog.  We're NOT just sitting around waiting for your phone call and rescues do stay overloaded in this economy.


You must have vet records available to us.  We are all volunteers and we survive on donations, volunteers and charity.  Many times people call, ask for help and then disappear.   It's YOUR responsibility stay keep in communication if you want our help

~For our Little Kids~

Even if you're not quite ready to adopt a Boston of your own, you can help a great deal for medical procedures for sick and injured Bostonians with a special gift for a little dog, many of whom are too old or too sick to be adopted.  

Checks are always appreciated in any amount and if you're interested, please call or email us for more information.

For General Donations


Some people aren't able to adopt but do enjoy sponsoring dogs. Without donations and sponsors, we are limited to how much we can help these poor little souls. 

Rescue has become a sanctuary for older, sick, disabled or otherwise "un-adoptable" dogs.  We have many living happily in foster homes who're being made possible by your kind support for the foster homes and the sanctuaries.


Please Donate Generously to Help us Help Them

  A Boston Terrier kid somewhere will thank you for your Kindness and you'll get a Star in Heaven
