Out and About With NEBTR

Special Needs K9 Organization

Headed by NEBTR member Mike Pravec, Special Needs K9 specializes in rescue and aid to special needs dogs and other animals, our purpose and goal does not stop there. They are advocates against mistreatment of any animals, for their well-being and survival. Special Needs K9 finances medical procedures, treatments and purchases equipment that provides aid to disabled or otherwise affected animals. We find foster and forever homes for the ones that are difficult to adopt due to their disabilities. We also hire professionals to train dogs in animal shelters to help with certain behavioral issues that might have developed by being “locked up” in an undesirable environment for long periods of time.

Kamp Kanine

Kamp Kanine


Carolyn McCarthy, a NEBTR member and foster parent, offers a 10% discount off of all services for rescue folk at her Kamp Kanine in Little Falls, NJ. Kamp Kanine offers Doggie Day Care, Boarding, Training, and Bathing, as well as having raw and organic foods as options for feeding. With 5,000 square feet of beautiful climate controlled space, your pet will be treated to an individual program by their dedicated staff.

Kindred Souls Canine Solutions

Kindred Souls “Canine Solutions” was founded in response to the disturbing fact that 70% of all dogs in shelters are there due to behavior issues. Kindred Souls believe most of these issues are preventable or solvable with early training and socialization.


Kindred Souls was founded by trainer Peter Campione. Mr. Campione has been training dogs and their owners for 15 years. He is certified & endorsed by the National Association of Dog Obedience Instructors. He is assisted by his Australian Shepherd “Jake”. He was named 1996 “Great American Dog” by Ralston Purina.

Leader of the Pack Canine Institute

NEBTR member Cynthia Musselman has been working with a dog trainer, Lisa, in Allentown PA who has opened a new training center, Leader of the Pack on Farm Bureau Road, Allentown PA. Lisa invited us to be part of her open house and is putting our group in her newspaper ad in the local paper.

Lisa has been a great FREE resource for a very challenging foster in Cynthia’s care. She is also willing to help NEBTR foster families without charge with all of our foster Bostons. Lisa has also offered to give a discount for any of our adopted households and any of our volunteers who would like to be more prepared for bring a foster into your household and how to train your foster for a great forever home experience.

Northeast Boston Terrier Rescue (NEBTR) is comprised of volunteers based in NY, NJ, PA, CT and DE 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.
