Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

Boston Terrier Rescue of North Carolina (BTRNC) adopts to families in North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia and Georgia. In special cases BTRNC will consider applicants in other nearby states.

About Our Rescue Group:

BTRNC is a non-profit 501(c)(3) all volunteer North Carolina based animal rescue organization. Since 2003, BTRNC has rescued, rehabilitated, and provided adoption for Boston Terriers in the states of North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, and Virginia.

BTRNC removes Boston Terriers from abuse/neglect situations, owner surrenders, animal shelters, other animal welfare organizations, or otherwise without an owner. BTRNC then places rescued Boston Terriers in qualified foster homes and provides all necessary medical treatment, including heatworm testing and treatment and vaccinations.

BTRNC works diligently to find suitable homes for all of its dogs available for adoption.

BTRNC supports the control of pet overpopulation through the spaying/ neutering of rescued Boston Terriers prior to their placement with adoptive families.

BTRNC solicits and receives donations from the general public and its members.

Come Meet our Pets:

All of our dogs are fostered in private homes and are not available for viewing. BTRNC occasionally participates in adoption and other events where some of its dogs are present.

Our Adoption Process:

Those interested in adopting from BTRNC must complete an application which is available on its website, www.btrnc.org. If the application meets the specifications stated in the application and if BTRNC has or expects to have a dog that meets the applicant's specifications, its adoption coordinator will contact the applicant to further review and discuss the application. The adoption coordinator will also contact the veterinarian provided as a reference, and one of our volunteers may complete a home visit to meet the applicant and evaluate the applicant's home.

The fee for adoption is:
$400 for puppies 6 months old and younger
$350 for dogs over 6 months and under 8 years old
$150 for dogs 8 years old and older.

The adoption fee includes spaying/neutering, heartworm testing and treatment, if needed, any other needed medical treatment, microchipping, harnesses, leashes and i.d. tags.

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.
