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"

Leroy is about 10 years old. He came into rescue on May 1 when his owner called rescue because he couldn't afford Leroy's medical expenses. Poor Leroy was suffering from a long-standing foot infection (please note these photos are quite graphic) and also in dire need of medical and dental attention.

The vet determined that the infection had atrophied the entire leg and that it should be amputated and that Leroy was in considerable pain. He also was found to be riddled with hookworm and had several broken teeth. After this assessment, it was decided that Leroy should be transferred to a different vet who could better assess his specific needs. The second vet performed a biopsy of the mass on Leroy's foot and after a week, the results showed that it was benign. Since May 1, Leroy has been on constant pain medication and anti-biotics. Leroy's bills are estimated at over $2,000.
