A Plea for Foster Homes

Share Button


Please consider fostering!  We have a line of Bostons waiting to get in our group, but we need foster homes to be able to help them!

Virtual Fosters

Share Button

We now have a virtual foster program! The program is for people that cannot fit another furry friend into their home or for one reason or another cannot physically foster but want to help and support our rescues.  It gives our many supporters the opportunity to virtually foster a dog of their choice. There are two ways to sponsor virtually, a one-time donation (Guardian) or a monthly on-going donation (Angel).

These dogs are all forever fosters or have terminal medical conditions.

Each dog has a Facebook page and the sponsors will have access to the page for updates as a way to communicate with the sponsor family.

A Paws to You Award

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.

Northeast Boston Terrier Rescue has been selected for the 2014 Best of Manhattan Award in the Animal Rescue Service category by the Manhattan Award Program. This is due in no small part to the efforts and talents of

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.
