Picture of the Week!

Squirt was just a puppy when she was found wandering the beach road with an eye injury. A Good Samaritan picked her up and after attempts to locate her family, contacted Alabama Boston Terrier Rescue to assist. Our ophthalmologist gave us the grim news: Squirt's eye and lens were perforated by a sharp object, most likely a cat claw, and chances of a useful recovery in the eye were slim, even if we provided Squirt with very expensive eye repair surgery. Squirt's eye was removed, and she was immediately relieved of the pain and discomfort of that injury.

Squirt is now adopted, and is loving life! She lives on a farm with pigs and goats and horses and dogs, staying busy and in just enough trouble to get away with! At the end of the day, you will find her sound asleep on the sofa, content with her bunny in her mouth.

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.
