Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

Boston Dog Rescue places dogs primarily in the Boston/Greater Boston area, however, if we can arrange for a homevisit, we will consider adopting a dog to an applicant in CT, RI, NH, ME and VT. All of our dogs are privately fostered throughout the Boston area.

About Our Rescue Group:

Simply, stated, we LOVE dogs! We are an all-breed, all-volunteer dog rescue group devoted to helping homeless dogs find loving homes. We are a small organization and we operate this rescue in our free time aside from full-time jobs. Our dogs reside in foster homes throughout Greater Boston as we feel this offers a better environment for them and provides an easier transition into an adoptive home. Our goal is to find only the best homes for the dogs in our care. Each and every dog that we take in means the world to us.

Our Adoption Process:

Boston Dog Rescue has a thorough screening process. We require an initial phone interview, two personal references, a vet reference, and a homevisit. Applications can be found on our website and all adopters will be asked to sign an adoption contract. We strive to match our dogs with the "right" home. We have a solid return policy so that any dog adopted through our organization will not end up in a shelter again.

The adoption fee of $200 includes all vaccinations, spay/neuter and treatment for any medical condition, such as heartworm (the dog will receive appropriate treatment and be given a clean bill of health prior to being adopted out).

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.
