A P.O. Box 15555, Scottsdale, AZ 85267 rescue helping to find loving homes for dogs.
1 - 4 of 4 Adoptable Pets at This Shelter
AZBTR takes in adoptable Boston Terriers from many situations. We provide for their medical and behavioral needs, then place them in loving, permanent homes. All of our rescued dogs live with families in foster homes in Arizona. We operate statewide and occasionally take in dogs from nearby states. We do not run a shelter that you can visit. All of the rescue's operations are carried out by volunteers, most of whom have families and full-time jobs. We are very busy!
AZBTR is a proud member of the Coalition of All Breed Rescue of Arizona.
Arizona Boston Terrier Rescue, Inc. (AZBTR) is an Arizona non-profit corporation dedicated to the rescue and re-homing of unwanted Boston Terriers, education of owners on responsible dog ownership, and education of the public on the Boston Terrier breed.
AZBTR began life as the Rescue Committee of the Valley of the Sun Boston Terrier Club, a club founded in 1974 by a group of Boston Terrier lovers and breeders. As responsible breeders they knew that, in addition to improving and protecting the breed, it was also their obligation to help individual Bostons that needed new homes.
Over the years, more and more Bostons needed help, and the Rescue Committee's operations grew to the point that it made sense to form a separate Boston Terrier rescue with the exclusive goal of helping dogs that needed new homes. Arizona Boston Terrier Rescue, Inc. was born as a free-standing non-profit corporation in 2006.
Arizona Boston Terrier Rescue is now holding adoption events at Pet Planet Boardwalk in Chandler on the first Saturday of each month and the Pet Planet Village Plaza the third Saturday of each month! These adoption events are from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM. Please come and meet some of the Boston Terriers that are available for adoption. If you are planning on coming to meet a specific BT please let us know!
Our Boston Terriers are not available for immediate adoption since we require a home visit prior to adoption, however if you would like to meet the dogs available please come by and you can submit your applications on site. If you have already submitted an application or are approved to adopt, please come on down and meet our adoptable Boston Terriers….you never know which one (or two) will capture your heart.

AZBTR is an all-volunteer, Federal 501(c)(3) non-profit rescue organization for Boston Terriers in most areas of Arizona. In addition to rescue, our volunteers provide medical care and/or rehabilitation for these dogs and then attempt to match them with appropriate, permanent homes. Through public education, we strive to help eliminate pet overpopulation by encouraging the spaying/neutering of pets. Our efforts are made possible by the gift of volunteerism that our members donate and by public donations. Donations: Your financial donation is tax deductible. We will be happy to provide a donation receipt suitable for tax purposes for any donation over $25.00. Donations are accepted via PayPal on our website. Or, you can make donations by check made out and mailed to: Arizona Boston Terrier Rescue P.O. Box 15555 Scottsdale, AZ 85267-5555 In addition to cash, our rescue gratefully accepts items we can use for our rescued Bostons, including crates, bedding, collars, harnesses and leashes, food and water bowls, grooming supplies, toys, and food and treats. We have a particular need for crates. We send crates out as "loaners" when people foster or adopt dogs, and this year we've had so many dogs we are out of crates to loan with our rescued Bostons! Thank you for considering a donation to the Arizona Boston Terrier Rescue.
