Boston Terrier Special Needs Spotlight

It is a sad fact that many smaller rescue groups have had to fold because they don't have the resources to continue, and others are alive and struggling, but have had to turn away dogs due to lack of resources. We know that everyone in rescue is overloaded, overworked, under funded, and exhausted...! And, with Vet bills continuously going up, there is an ever increasing number of very sick, and or abused animals coming into rescue regularly. Meet other special needs boston terriers we've helped! Therefore, BTRN, in its role as a national fundraiser, has developed a sponsorship program in which one Special Needs Rescue Boston will be "Showcased" on our website, with fundraising efforts directed towards that one Boston until its medical expenses have been met, at which time, another will be showcased. Any Boston in rescue may apply to be showcased, however special consideration will always be given to the neediest....... and those having no funding from any other venue.

If you would like to contribute to the Special Needs program, please be sure to send your donation clearly marked for the "Special Needs Fund"

Our Current Special Needs Spotlight - Buddy Min


Find out how you can help Buddy here

Buddy Min was brought to a kill shelter as a stray on May 31st with a dislocated and fractured pelvis along with several lacerations after being hit by a car. He has not been neutered and is thought to be between 2 and 3 years old. His white blood cell count is very high and he has been found to have a UTI. Buddy was not eating, but has now started eating and regaining strength after some dedicated care from rescue.

He was found to be heartworm positive. And, the veterinarian has decided Buddy will need surgery to repair his dislocated hip and fractured pelvic bones. He will also be neutered. These procedures will be quite expensive. His lacerations have, thankfully, already started healing. His surgery is scheduled on or around Wednesday, June 17.
