Boston Terrier Rescue of East Tennessee

Maryville, TN

Adoption Policy

For the Application and much more information, go to The Boston Terrier Rescue of East Tennessee website,  Boston Terrier Rescue of East TN at and use the online application.

We require both an adoption application & a contract. We check Vet references, interview families and do home visits. We ask for a nominal adoption donation to help us defray the medical expenses of the next homeless dog.
It generally costs us more than we take in in fees per dog to completely vet a dog. Many come to us old and frail, often sick, making donations more critical. We are not subsidized by the government or any foundation, but rather by only a few very good people.   We're delighted to get donations.

Our adoption application is available on-line and we will generally respond within 24-48 hours to your application and answer any initial questions. Anyone wishing to adopt should complete the online application on

If you don't get an answer to an inquiry it's probably because your question was already answered in the bio -- and if the dog is still posted on our website, that means he/she is still available.
