Dog adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
Our ultimate purpose is to match homeless or potentially homeless Boston Terriers with loving permanent families, specifically interested in the breed. We do this by providing temporary foster care, necessary and reasonable medical treatment, personality assessments of the animals, and interviews and homechecks of potential adopters. All dogs receive a medical examination and reasonable treatment before being placed into adoptive homes. Pre-placement medical care includes all vaccinations, heartworm and fecal testing and spay or neuter. We operate throughout Washington DC, Northern Virginia and Maryland.
Our current adoption fee is $250.
If you are interested in adopting our rescued boston terrier, please go to http://bostonterrierclubofmd.org/rescue_application.htm and download the application. Microsoft Word is required, so if you do not have access to Word, you can e-mail the webmaster at firstname.lastname@example.org and she will be able to fax you the application.
We will not adopt out our rescued boston terriers to just anyone. We require home checks and intensive interview to make sure the adoption is a "good fit". We look for "forever homes" instead of "temporary homes".
Please be aware you must be MD/DC/VA resident. We DO NOT ship boston terriers.
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.
