Special thanks to Jennifer Hartline and Marilyn Morgan Holzerland at Help If You Can for raising $3,154 for the Northeast Boston Terrier Rescue through their auction. NEBTR is extremely thankful for their generosity, and Jennifer and Marilyn have been added as permanent members to the Gold Bone Society. Thanks as well to everyone who donated items to the auction and who purchased items.
We send our deepest sympathy to BJ Capelli and Leslie Poprik. They are not only fans of our page and huge supporters of our rescues, they are also winners of the Wells Fargo, “What Makes a Home” contest! And that’s not all – their now famous BT, Berklee, is one of the stars of the film and he plays the tambourine! Berklee donated his share of the winning prize money to NEBTR.
We have just learned of Berklee’s passing. He was a supporter as well as a donor to NEBTR. He was featured in a prize winning video attached here. Thank you for all the smiles you brought to NEBTR fosters and their families Berklee. You will not be forgotten by those you loved, and those you helped. RIP
Thank you so much for caring for all the dogs, Berklee, that didn’t have a home – your generosity helped a lot of dogs. Please take care of all of them in heaven who have passed, you are a wonderful ambassador. RIP
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.
Ryan Csolak of MultiPet International – Thank you to Ryan for supporting the new foster packages. When new fosters come in, they often come in with nothing and NEBTR puts together a package of toys and treats so that the dog can have something all their own. Ryan is the owner and creative designer and distributer for “awesome “ dog and cats toys. He sent NEBTR 3 huge boxes of toys, beds and chews. There are well over 300 stuffed, unstuffed, squeaky cool toys, and some of them are famous; we have Rocky the Squirrel, the Pink Panther and other assorted characters! Thank you Ryan – we give you a big “A-Paws” of thanks for your generosity.
Eileen Giltz – Supporter of NEBTR – Thank you Eileen, for supporting our new foster packages with your constant generosity of buying out the WishList! Eileen, on several occasions, has bought out the foster wish list; this wish list is put together so that when new fosters come in, there are toys and treats we can send them. A small package is individually put together for each dog and it’s all their own and often all they have. On Mothers’ Day, Eileen decided her mother had everything she could possibly want so she decided to take the money and spend it on our dogs and has consistently done that week after week. Toys, a full carton of Greenies, a full carton of Bully Sticks and so much more! Thank you Eileen – we give you a big “A-Paws” of thanks for your constant support and love for our rescues.
Thanks to Boston Terrier Lehigh Valley for the many dog goodies for our foster dogs. This has totaled over $1,000. Members get together for BT play dates, and it sounds like they have a blast. 🙂 http://lehigh.bostonterriermeetup.com/
NEBTR member Walter Williams was instrumental last summer in initiating our Senior Trust, which provides medical support for our wonderful Seniors. We all have a special place in our hearts for those Senior Bostons, who, through no fault of their own, find themselves without a home and in need of expensive medical care.
But starting this program, which has already helped numerous Seniors, Walter also is donating his talent and creating digital portraits of beloved pets. Walter will paint your loved boston for FREE (with the hope you might give a donation to the senior trust fund.) He sits in photoshop and a win 8 painting program and hand paints your Boston looking at your favorite photograph, so give him your best one! It takes hours to complete but then you have a nice painting suitable to frame, once he sends you the 240 pixels per inch image in the email.
If you are interested, send Walter Williams a friend request on Facebook and contact him there. Since only 72 px/in. is possible on Facebook, remember to ask him to send you the 240 pixels per inch rendering.
NEBTR thanks Walter profusely for the extraordinary efforts he continually makes to raise funds for our rescued Bostons, in particular the Senior Trust Fund that was created due to his relentless energy on their behalf. The paintings you donate and the donations we receive for them are just another example of your generosity.
We are grateful for your support, your time, your imagination and talent, but mostly for your shared love of this beautiful breed.
Winston was the beloved dog of Michelle Luongo Patel. Michelle writes, “I miss my baby. I just can’t believe he’s gone. I will never kiss his soft little temples again, snuggle him, have him smile at me with his teeth or his right sided grin. I’m lost.”
Blodwen Fletcher, Michele Abate, Anna Cheung, Julianne Furdyna, Gina Curcio and Doris Arguelles have made memorial gifts in Winston’s name to the Northeast Boston Terrier Rescue. We thank them for their kindness in his memory.
