Kim Barnett

Kim Barnett stresses promoting good human – canine relationships based on respect, trust and kindness.

She writes, “My philosophy is a simple one: to help humans communicate better with their dogs and have more fulfilling relationships. A soon as we begin to communicate clearly, our dogs respond accordingly. Most of us already have the skills, we just don’t know it. In considering this, I look for the similarities more than the differences in our two species and use them to mutual advantage. It’s no coincidence that the dog has been our closest companion for thousands of years; on an instinctual level we have many parallels, both being a social species.”

Pawz Packz

Pam Witt created Pawz Packz to help rescues by donating a portion of her sales to rescue groups.  NEBTR is one of the organizations that she has chosen for her donation.

Each pack consists of four magnets and a “paw” in a metal tin.  You can select the four magnets you choose for your Paw Pack, which are housed in a round metal tin with a clear window on the front.  Then Pick one paw for each Paw Pack you order.

There are ordering directions on the Pawz Packz site, which you can visit by clicking on this link.


In Memory of Mary Beth Rapp

Mary Beth Rapp was a willing and active volunteer with NEBTR and wanting to help Bostons wherever and whenever she could.  She fostered them for us, and regularly helped with transporting them.

Mary Beth was beautiful soul who will be so sorely missed by all of us.  Her family has our deepest sympathies and we share you loss. She was a true friend to our Boston Terriers.

Mary Beth Rapp, 54, a lifelong Pawling resident, died Friday, Dec. 28, 2012, at her home.

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.
