Rescue Transport Map

MidAmerica Boston Terrier Rescue Inc. (MABTR) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation serving the states of Nebraska, Colorado, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wyoming, and Minnesota.  We have extended as far out as Utah, Montana, Idaho, Wisconsin, and Arkansas, however they do require more driving on the adoptors end.


MidAmerica Boston Terrier Rescue is run by volunteers with caring hearts. We are funded completely by donations, and we can’t achieve our mission alone. Generous donations from kind people like you sustain us with the financial support necessary to care for the hundreds of homeless Bostons we take in every year.

You can support MABTR through a tax-deductible donation.

In 2015 we took in 381 Bostons and Boston-mixes. We have saved more than 2,880 Bostons since Nov 2006. Click here to see our monthly rescue statistics.

Key Volunteers

The rescue agent for this group is Jennifer Misfeldt, who has been rescuing dogs since 2002. With the support of family, friends, and volunteers, rescuing Boston Terriers is the primary focus of her life. No one in this organization is paid, though Jennifer easily works on saving lives for more hours in a week than a full-time job. For her, it is truly a labor of love.

In addition to Jennifer, rescue activities are sustained by a vast network of volunteers across the Midwest.

Lifesaving Activities

Boston Terrier Eye InjuryMABTR takes in Boston Terriers of any age and physical/mental condition. Dogs are put in foster care until they are adopted. Prior to adoption, we provide complete medical care, which includes spaying and neutering (if 6 months and older), updating dogs on vaccines, testing and treating (when necessary) for heartworm, and microchipping. If other medical conditions present themselves while in our care, we address and treat them as well.

MABTR prides itself on the ability to give commercial breeder (puppy mill) dogs a second chance at life.

Please consider adopting a homeless pet before shopping at a pet store. Learn why here.
