For Lost and Found for Boston Terriers & Other Dogs

Boston Terrier Rescue of East Tennessee Policy

If we find a dog, recover a dog from an animal shelter or are given a found dog by a responsible third party or Good Samaritan who has rescued or found the dog, we will use our best efforts to locate the dog's owner within a reasonable period of time and after that time the dog will be considered available for adoption when it is in good health.  We will determine that 'reasonable period of time' but by statute, that may be as little as three days.  We do not have the facilities to keep dogs indefinitely, waiting for owners to finally show up.

We will browse the local newspaper's Lost and Found departments, post the dog here on this website if requested by an owner looking for a lost dog and in other appropriate online resources and inquire at our local vets' offices for Lost and Found postings.

Any emergency medical attention required by the dog will be provided immediately as will all other appropriate routine veterinary care as advised by our veterinarians.

We will NOT post in the newspaper's Lost and Found section, nor will we place posters on telephone poles or other conspicuous places.  That is the OWNER'S responsibility and other prudent and effective advice on how to carry out activities related to recovery of a lost pet is posted here on this page for that specific purpose and the owner's convenience and use.

If the dog is eventually properly identified by the owner, the owner will be responsible for a per diem fee of $10/day boarding and any veterinary costs that are required in the sole opinion of BTR of ET and our vets.  Any additional costs required or incurred to protect our dogs from any illness carried by the found dog are also the responsibility of the person claiming to be owner and those will be paid in full prior to the dog's release.

Proper identification will consist of any documentation, photographs, vet records, AKC records, or other collaborating evidence.  The burden is on you to prove that this is your dog and the dog will help make that determination by it's reaction to you.
