Our Mission

  • We are an all-volunteer; non-profit group dedicated to the health and well being of all Boston Terriers. Our mission and main objective is to vet and responsibly re-home unwanted animals with a thorough pre-screening adoption program that includes checking vet and personal references as well as a home visit. Secondary objectives include pet education and decreasing the number of purebred animals being born. Our policy is that all dogs are spayed/neutered before adoption and educating our adopters on the importance of spay/neuter. Our ultimate goal is to ensure that every Boston Terrier has the chance to live the life they deserve.

Who We Are

We are a small, dedicated group of Boston Terrier-loving volunteers based in North Texas who stay busy rescuing, training, transporting, vetting, coordinating and fundraising - all for the love of our chosen breed, the Boston Terrier.

What We Do

  • All Bostons that come into ABTR get fully vetted including but not limited to: heartworm testing and treatment if positive, they are spayed/neutered and placed into home environments to ensure a good fit into their new forever family homes. We will not turn away a Boston in need as long as we have available space.
  • ALL Bostons deserve a loving home. We accept all Bostons, regardless of age or health. (We will not accept dogs that exhibit human or dog aggression.)
  • Please note that the adoption process begins with an adoption application followed by reference checks and a home visit. Incomplete applications cannot be considered.
  • We are not a shelter and do not have visiting hours. All of our Bostons are fostered in loving private homes.
  • All adoptions do require an adoption donation to cover the cost of vet bills. 
  • Payment options include cash, money order, cashiers check or paypal. 
  • ABTR is a 501(c)3 non-profit rescue organization. All donations are applied to caring for the Boston Terriers in our rescue group.
