Meet Brody and May


 Brody and May were both owner surrenders and came to us as an adorable set. Brody is only five years old and had some peculiar behaviors, and after evaluations by experts and and MRI, he was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor. Brody is taking medications and has been doing better. His prognosis is poor and he will spend the remainder of his life in his foster home.

May is three years old and is an amazing sister and friend to Brody. She's travelled to doctor's appointments with him. She sleeps beside him. May will seek him out if she's asked, "Where's Brody?".  She is an amazing little girl. She is loving and sweet, not too wild, and is perfectly house trained.

May has been adopted, but because of ABTR, she's getting to stay with Brody throughout his illness. She loves him and he loves her. He may not be able to show it, but we truly believe he is comforted by her presence. They will stay together until the end.

This photo is of Brody and May enjoying their Secret Santa Gifts donated by Grampie's Angel Tree and The Sanctuary,  Coeburn, Virginia.  Stephanie Blanco and her sweet BTs, Mack, Indigo, & Cody, really have spoiled them this Christmas.

Welcome to Alabama Boston Terrier Rescue

Alabama Boston Terrier Rescue Group ("ABTR") is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to the welfare of the Boston Terrier dog breed. We serve the Southeast, including Alabama, Georgia, Florida Panhandle, Tennessee, Mississippi, and North Carolina. ABTR takes any Boston Terrier regardless of age, temperament, and/or medical condition, and places the dog in a foster home. Our rescues are placed in the loving homes of volunteers where they are assessed for personality, and then are carefully matched to a home that will provide only the very best.

All Boston Terrier and Boston Terrier mixes are spayed/neutered before placement,(unless age or health issues prevent this at the time of adoption) vaccinated, and all known medical conditions are addressed and treated as appropriate. A lengthy screening and education process is done before an application is approved. An adoption contract is completed, and post-placement follow-up is done. An adoption fee is charged to cover the tremendous veterinary expenses incurred by ABTR.  But we can't do it alone. Generous donations from kind people like you sustain us with the financial support necessary to care for these victims of selfishness and neglect. You can help support ABTR by mailing your tax-deductible donation or by using PayPal. We hope that you enjoy our web site and will visit often.
