Amanda, a NEBTR foster mom and volunteer has started making dog bandanas to help raise funds for our Boston Terriers in need, which are sold at Amanda’s Boston Boutique, called Snorting With Style. There are three different sizes of the bandanas and all of them slide over the collar. Check back often, new prints will be added frequently!
BJ Capelli and Leslie Poprik, a musician and teacher from Pennsylvania were $250,000 winners in the Wells Fargo What Makes A Home contest! Watch their winning entry here, featuring their Boston Terrier Berklee: http://spr.ly/6182SHP6 . They made a $3,000 donation to NEBTR from their winnings and we thank them so much for thinking of us.
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/
This is like a constant yard sale! Anyone can offer up an item. Photo(s), a brief description, and the price you think it should sell for is all you need to send to Chris Cassner at firstname.lastname@example.org (She can attach it from there).
The store is located at http://nebtrthriftstore.tictail.com/
She will post it. When the item sells, she will email you with an address where to send the item.
1) Anything you would like do donate is welcomed.
2) You must be willing to ship it to the buyer, and in a timely fashion (keep the postal receipt for your tax deductible donation).
This is a fantastic way to get rid of the clutter in your closets, garage, attic, etc. Also this close to Halloween, you could get rid of all those old costumes you don’t need, or better yet score a new one for yourself at yard sale prices!
Chris has posted some items already. As she gets more items she will add more categories.

Let me tell you how this all came about…
I rescue Boston Terriers and started baking my own treats for my pups a few years ago. My dogs loved them, my neighbor’s dogs loved them, and the trail just continued! I was thrilled to have so many pups enjoying my treats! All of my treats are baked fresh and have a lot of natural ingredients too! I am always here to answer your questions, feel free to message me, I would love to help you choose the perfect treats for your best friends! I love what I do and I hope you will love it here too!
Looking for a unique gift? How about these collector wines. Each bottle sold will provide a donation to the NEBTR of at least $7.00 per bottle. You can choose from Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Merlot, Malbec, Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc. Each label features one of hte NEBTR rescues in all their handsome beauty. The wines provide great gifts for friends, relatives and animal lovers!
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
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!
The Animal Clinic of Morris Plains in Morris Plains, NJ will be throwing a breed specific party for our clients and their Boston Terriers on April 25th from 3p-5p. They are highlighting rescues and NEBTR will be represented with a few fosters there in hopes of spreading the word, and maybe even finding them a home. They will also be selling some NEBTR items (bandanas, clothing, treats, even wine) with the proceeds going to NEBTR.
