ABTR Private Label Wines
What's the perfect gift for that special Boston Terrier loving friend or family member who has everything? How about their favorite wine? Celebrate any occasion and help a rescued Boston Terrier with ABTR's very own private label wine collction!
Order at www.BenefitWines.com/boston, or phone in your order at (978) 297-5477. Thank you for supporting American Boston Terrier Rescue!
Hint: Shipping costs for a single bottle may seem a bit high, but that's because shipping alcohol incurs a $12 up front fee and an adult's signature. Order mutliple bottles (like six or more) to get maximum shipping savings. ABTR recommends ordering multiple bottles at once ~ think birthdays, Mother's Day, Father's Day, anniversaries and holidays, or order with a friend and share the shipping cost!

Select from 14 warmers of various style and colors, warmer lids, and additional fork sets. Chocolate comes in dark chocolate, milk chocolate, white chocolate, and caramel milk chocolate.
Here’s how easy it is: 1. Turn on Velata Fondue Warmer
2. Melt Velata Chocolate and pour into warmer dish
3. Set out foods for dipping and have fun with fondue.
Please visit our website, mmittag.velata.us.
Orders received from ABTR members will result in 20% donation, prior to taxes, being given to American Boston Terrier Rescue. We thank you all for your orders. This is our way of giving back.
ABTR has partnered with a very generous Scentsy representative to bring you this wonderfully unique fundraising opportunity. Please note that this offer is valid only through our partnership with this individual Scentsy Independent Consultant.
Until further notice, American Boston Terrier Rescue will receive 20% of all sales, minus sales tax and shipping, from Scentsy products purchased at her site!
To place an order, please visit this site. Go to the section labeled "My Open Parties" and scroll down to "Boston Terrier Rescue" and click "Buy from party". This link will take you to the Scentsy Online Catalog from which you may place your order. The "Paws" warmer can be found in the "Monthly Specials" section by selecting the "Scent and Warmer of the Month" link. Of course you may browse all of the exciting Scentsy products and purchase as many products as you wish.
When ordering a warmer, our Consultant recommends that you also purchase a fragrance bar. Each bar has six squares and the fragrance square will last from eight to ten hours. The entire bar will last forty to sixty hours.
There are no shipping charges for product orders over $150. For orders less than $150, a 10% shipping charge will be added. Online orders totaling $150.00 or more are entitled to free merchandise and half-price items, exclusive of the June warmer and products of the month. The website will guide you through the ordering process.
You may pay with Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or American Express.
Remember, Scentsy products are authentic, unique, great quality and have a 100% guarantee. Should you have any questions, there is an email link just below our Consultant's name on her webpage.
The more Scentsy products you purchase, the more money donated to American Boston Terrier Rescue.
Let's work together to help the Bostons!

'Reading Fur Rescue'
The Ultimate Gift Fur Your Dog-Loving Friends and Family: Great Books that Give Back!
Pick up books at the Happy Tails Books website and be sure to say you heard out about them from ABTR on the checkout page so our rescue will get credit for the sale.
Sharing books from the 'Lost Souls: Found!' series, which contain over 50 heartwarming stories about adopted dogs, is a great opportunity to help raise awareness about dog rescue. It will surely be one of the most memorable and appreciated gifts you give this year.
Doggie Drawings by Lili Chin
See the pages and pages of beautiful graphics by Lili - you'll surely want to immortalize YOUR special friend(s) with a Lili original!
Lili has generously offered to donate 25% of each order placed by an ABTR Friend (or supporter of ABTR, or family member of ABTR, or neighbor, coworker, whatever) to our cause. Just be sure to let her know that you support American Boston Terrier Rescue!
Here's the lowdown, straight from Lili's blog:
What you will receive:
Depending on how busy I am (because I do other work during the day) the finished drawing could take any time from 1 day to 2 weeks.
$50 for a drawing with 1 dog
If you would like to commission a drawing of your dog(s), please send me a message with a short description of their personalities and a link to photos if they are in an online gallery (eg, Flickr, photobucket, etc) Or you could email your favorite photos to me. I prefer photos that include different angles and a full body pose (undressed! :)) so that I can see their unique body markings clearly. Or if I could meet your dogs... that would be the best! My email address is lili.chin (at) gmail.com.
We hope you'll all consider participating in this ongoing fundraiser. Just think how proud you'll be to display a genuine work of art featuring your furbaby! And what an AMAZING gift idea for Mother's Day, Father's Day, a birthday, Christmas, or any other special occasion! It's an affordable, personal and incredibly thoughtful gift for the dog lovers (or any pet, really) in your life! The possibilities are endless, and doggies in need will benefit - what could be better?
Help ABTR Fill Our Virtual Billboard!ABTR has created a virtual billboard using GiveWithoutGiving.org. This is a super cool new fundraising tool that allows supporters to make donations in $1 increments to help us reveal our virtual billboard image. Donors may upload an image, provide a URL, and leave a personal message, all for as little as $1.
Please consider supporting ABTR so we may continue to help dogs with emergency medical needs like Nicky, Junebug and ZaZa. Your support will also enable us to continue to strive toward a puppymill-free nation as we work with local officials to care for Bostons that were formerly trapped in horrendous mill situations.
We can't do this without your help, and we're always looking for new and novel ways to put the FUN back in fundraising!
See the virtual billboard below to track our progress and click here to buy blocks!
Graphics may not be used in any form without written permission from ABTR. If you like our new graphics, I suggest you contact Lili Chin and if you indicate American Boston Terrier Rescue, she will donate a portion of her proceeds from your drawing back to ABTR.
