Boston Terrier Club Of Connecticut
Established in 1931
Our Rescue program is dedicated to fostering and re-homing Boston Terriers whose owners have surrendered them.  The Club members who run the rescue program are dedicated to finding a permanent and loving home for all Bostons in our care.  We work during the day and care for fosters, make home visits and return calls in the evening and weekends as time permits. 

To contact the Boston Terrier Club of Connecticut Rescue Committe, please see the Contact page

Rescued Boston Terriers are fostered in our homes and socialized with other dogs and people.  We temperament test many of our Bostons to aid in making a good match with a prospective adopter.  We will typically pick up a surrendered Boston at their home to speak with the owner to better understand the Boston and its needs and behavior before coming into foster care.  Most of our Bostons are owner-surrendered.  When volunteers are available, dogs are fostered in our homes until a forever home is found. When a local foster volunteer is not available, a Rescue Team member will search for a home while the dog waits with their owner(s).

From time to time we may have "special needs" Boston Terriers. If you can open your heart and home to one of our special Bostons, please contact our Rescue Committee.

Some of the things we look for in a new family for our dogs are knowledge and understanding, ability to  provide for a Boston, and the willingness to work with any medical/behavioral issues the dog may have.

While many times the interest in adopting a Boston Terrier exceeds the number of Bostons we may have in rescue, we encourage you to submit an application.  We will keep your application on file and will contact you if a Boston arrives that we think will be a good match with you.  In turn if you no longer are interested, we ask that you let us know. 

To partially offset our expenses incurred in providing necessary care for a Boston Terrier in rescue we ask for a donation of $300.00 at the time of adoption.

If you need to find a new home for your Boston Terrier, please contact the Rescue Committee.
Any food, bedding, or special possessions of theirs that come with them at the time of surrender will help in their transition to their new home.
