Northeast Boston Rescue (NEBTR) is comprised of volunteers based in NY/NJ and PA and serves Boston Terriers in need within reach of our helping hands. Most dogs in foster care for placement are adolescent to adult dogs in need of re-homing in life for a multitude of reasons and will need caring hands to guide them as they transition into new homes. All of our rescue dogs are fostered and evaluated for a 2 week minimum to allow us to assess their personality and provide them with basic foundation skills - House/Crate training, basic manners - to ease their transition into new homes. It is our belief such work in foster care better prepares dogs for success and helps forms lasting bonds.

Adopting a friend
NEBTR's single priority in Rescue is to serve the individual dog in our care. While many loving homes - individuals and families - apply to adopt rescue dogs, we frequently receive multiple application for a dog. Our placement process is intended to supply the dog with a home suitable to meet its individual needs. Rescue volunteers also receive the same screening process as do the adopters.
There is a $10.00 application fee donation required before your application is processed. Only through the kindness and generosity of volunteers for these dogs can we survive. Adoption fees in no way cover personal expenses, veterinary bills, food and shelter and the time and costs taken to nurture these dogs back to health. Nor are the expenses to do research or home visit, or transports covered. We are not a part of the government entitlement programs and we receive no support other than through the kindness of donations.
If the application is approved, we will apply $10.00 to the Adoption Fee. If not, the entire amount will be considered a donation towards care for the old and sick who are unlikely to be adopted.
There IS an Adoption fee for a dog and it USUALLY ranges between $150 and $600, depending upon age & health/vet care requirements of Rescued dogs. Adoption fees are in place to defer the veterinary costs for all of the dogs in our care. All Veterinary records known to NEBTR will accompany each dog upon completed Adoption Agreement, along with a record for services rendered while in our care.
