A Paws to You Award

Share Button

This is our new award for recognition of those donors who have gone above and beyond in supplying gifts for our fosters. Many of them have come with nothing, and need every essential – plus a few toys and treats to make them happy! We recognize these special people with our A Paws to You Award, and know that we are proud that you have chosen us and our dogs for your wonderful gifts. We are truly blessed to have you support NEBTR.


Both Eileen Giltz and Ryan Csolak have also been added to our Gold Bone Society, which recognizes donors who have contributed $1000 or more.  They join an incredible roster of supporters, without whom we could not do the work that we do.

PB&J are so very honored and proud to present this fundraiser collar for Gizmo with Northeast Boston Terrier Rescue. $10 from the sale of every collar will go to NEBTR to help with the care for this very special little girl.  You can order it at

Gizmo is a tiny 12 pound red Boston that was surrendered to NEBTR after being attacked by another dog. She needed eye surgery and subsequently had to have one eye removed and lost sight in the other. Her surgery and follow up care are estimated at $2500, and they have a youcaring site set up for her as well.

In Memory of Miss Patsy and Brooke

In loving memory of Miss Patsy and Brooke, who were loved by Patti Maddamma, their Mama  forever.  Contributed by Dana Ugobajy, mom herself to NEBTR Chester.

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.
