Thank You Pets Plus

NEBTR has a new partner; we are participating in the PetPlus Shelter Partnership Program! PetPlus has given us 50 free memberships for our foster families (one-year memberships!)

If you don’t know about PetPlus, it is an online wholesaler for pet health and wellness. They offer flea, tick and heart worm products, specialty foods, Pet Rx, vitamins and supplements all at wholesale prices! (up to 75% off retail) AND free shipping ALWAYS.

But here’s what is so good about PetPlus. They partner with shelters and rescues because they understand the high cost and care of each foster dog. We have attached the website link below – let’s show them some love!  Thank you PetPlus! Our foster families can really use this membership!

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.
