MWBTR’s mission is to rescue Boston Terriers in need in the states of Michigan, Ohio, Illinois and Indiana that are relinquished for any reason by their owners, or are abandoned at shelters, animal control centers, veterinarian offices, Humane Society, SPCA or other facilities. Address any issues the dog may have that caused him/her to be surrendered or abandoned. Providing public awareness of pet overpopulation by ensuring that any dog adopted is spayed or neutered. Providing breed education and training assistance to those interested in adopting, and to those after they adopt. The MWBTR focus for each Boston Terrier in need is to provide a safe, healthy environment while we strive to find the best home available for that specific dog’s needs.
We rescue Boston Terriers because we know and love this breed, and for no other reason than our concern for their welfare. So many dogs are shelter dumped, lost or given up and unfortunately this breed is no exception. We have seen a dramatic increase in the trend of owning this breed since January 2004. As the demand and desire for this breed has increased, so has our need to rescue more dogs. We average 10+ Boston’s a week intake, with our average cost per dog of $350. Many cost more because they are surrendered or shelter dumped in poor health conditions or because they require medical treatment that a former owner couldn’t afford.
