Calling all sensitive folks who have been wanting to give an especially deserving pup a loving home. This is Ginger. We have learned that Ginger has been dumped at least once in her short life and it shows. She’s timid and unsure, often exhibiting behavior that says, “Are you going to hurt me? Am I in trouble? If I slink low to the floor perhaps you won’t notice me.” It’s heartbreaking! But the great news is that her foster mama says Ginger is developing trust and becoming very affectionate and sweet. It helps when mama reassures her that she’s safe now and no one will hurt her again!

About Boston Terrier Rescue of North Carolina

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.
