About AMERICAN BOSTON TERRIER RESCUE
About Our Rescue Group...
We are a small, dedicated group of Boston Terrier-loving volunteers based in North Texas. While we are currently awaiting our 501(c)3 status, we're busy rescuing, training, transporting, vetting, coordinating and fundraising. All for the love of our chosen breed, the Boston Terrier.
All Bostons that come into ABTR are fully vetted, heartworm checked, spayed/neutered and lived with to ensure a good fit into a new home. We never turn away a Boston in need.
ALL Bostons deserve a loving home. We accept all Bostons, regardless of age or health.
(We will not accept dogs that exhibit human aggression or are excessively dog aggressive.)
Please note that the adoption process begins with an adoption application. Incomplete apps will not be considered.
We are not a shelter and do not have visiting hours. All our Bostons are fostered in loving private homes.
All adoptions require an adoption fee.
Payment options include cash, money order, cashiers check or paypal.
ABTR is a non-profit rescue organization. All fees and donations are applied to Boston Terriers in need.
Donate to Our Rescue Group...
Come Meet Our Pets...We do not do adoption events. We feel that exposes the dogs to too much stress. Our adopters meet our dogs after they have completed the adoption application and are approved to adopt. This saves us much time and effort that can be spent on caring for the dogs. Plus that way they meet the dogs that are CURRENTLY available for adoption and are not disappointed because a dog they were interested in has been adopted to someone else who was approved before they were.
Our Adoption Process...
Adoption application must be completed.
We check vet and personal references.
A home visit is conducted.
Then Wanda calls and speaks to you about all the dogs CURRENTLY available that are a suitable match for your family. A decision is made about who is most suitable. Then you sign the adoption agreement, pay the adoption fees, and adopt the dog.
We do transport out of state at the adopter's expense in addition to the adoption fee. Airfare is $250 plus crate and health certificate $100plus adoption fee.
Adoption fees vary depending upon costs of vetting and age of dog. Puppies under 6 months are $450 as they are the most desired of all the dogs and they help pay the vet bills on the older dogs.
We do have a senior for senior program for persons over 65 wanting to adopt a dog over 8.
