About Our Rescue Group:

Thank you so much for contacting the Birmingham Boston Terrier Rescue (BhamBTR). BhamBTR is a premier 501(C)(3) non-profit status organization whose goal is to rescue Boston Terriers in need, assess and stabilize their health and emotional needs, find the best homes possible for them, provide information for pet owners in an effort to prevent these dogs from needing rescue in the future, and to work smoothly in conjunction with other rescuers. Since we are entirely run by volunteers, it may take a few days for someone to get back to you; and thus we appreciate your patience.

Once at a shelter, an owner-surrendered dog is typically euthanized (killed) within three days, and in some cases, within the same hour depending on overcrowding.

Waiting until the last minute to call a rescue to surrender your dog is NOT good idea for your dog and does NOT constitute an URGENT SURRENDER. All rescues stay loaded.

You must have your dog up to date on vaccinations (rabies, distemper, parvo) and must make ALL vet records available to us to confirm date of vaccinations. BhamBTR is only staffed by volunteers and survives on donations, volunteerism, and charity. Many times, people call asking for help and then disappear, which then wastes valuable time for both BhamBTR and the DOG. If you call and truly want BhamBTR's help, it is YOUR responsibility to stay in communication and to provide in a prompt manner all of the materials we ask you to send.

To surrender of a Boston Terrier, PLEASE do all of the following:
(1) Send a few digital photographs of the Boston Terrier to;
(2) Obtain copies of veterinary records; and
(3) Complete ONLY ONE of the following forms as appropriate:
Owner Surrender -, or
Shelter Release -, or
Stray Release - Do not complete a Stray Release to surrender your personal dog.
(4) Understand that your submission of an Release Form in no way guarantees that Birmingham Boston Terrier Rescue will accept your dog(s). Acceptance of your dog(s) is solely at the discretion of Birmingham Boston Terrier Rescue.


All Boston Terriers available for adoption have short bios and photos located at:

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
