Recent News

There have been a large number of Bostons in danger recently, either at shelters or at risk from abusive owners. We desperately need more foster homes so we can continue to give them all a chance at a happy life in a forever home. If you can open up your heart to do this, please fill out an application here, and we will get back to you. Thanks so much!

When dogs dream, this is the life they dream of, a family to love them, a yard to run in and food in their bellies.

We don’t know Mo’s story before he came to us. We do know that he was a happy here with us even though we only had him for a short time. The heartache of losing him will never outweigh the happiness and love he brought into our lives.

It’s not too late to order your Mo the Meatball T-shirt to honor Mo and help other dogs in need, especially those frosty face pups who find themselves looking for a new family so late in life.

Newly designed MoMo memorial shirt! Available through Sept 21, 2019. All proceeds are donated to NEBTR!

Sometimes in Rescue you don’t know your birthday so you celebrate the day you broke out of the shelter.

This is Mo’s 11 birthday, little did we know this would be his first and last birthday with us. He was such a special boy.

Please consider purchasing a Mo the Meatball shirt to support NEBTR and other dogs like Mo that find themselves in need of a new family.
