Our Mission

We rescue small dogs with big hearts! We are a volunteer group that helps primarily Boston Terriers, Boston mixes and other small dogs when resources permit. We rescue locally and all around the country - if our help is needed. 


Please check our website for an accurate listing of our available dogs, & events where you can meet the dog. If you are wanting more information on a particular dog, please email the email address in the dog's bio. In most cases this is the foster parent.

Adoption Policy

Application and Deposit Information 


Some dogs are fostered locally & some are fostered outside New England & need to be transported. We have no facilities so all dogs are in individual foster homes. We rescue our dogs all across the country & since we do not have enough foster homes locally we must let them stay close to where we rescue them until we can find a permanent home or available foster home in the Northeast. We do have a paid ground transport which can transport the dogs to the northeast.
