There is no fee for submitting an application with us. We are not affiliated with any other organization so we do require our application to be submitted in order to be considered. We DO adopt to families with fenced in yards or those that live in apartments/condos.
Prior to adoption, all rescued Bostons are spayed or neutered, microchipped, tested for heartworm, dewormed, vaccinated for rabies and distemper, and provided with care for any other medical needs, such as dental cleaning, tumor removal, orthopedic surgery, and eye surgery. Our foster homes begin obedience and potty training with dogs (when necessary), and all dogs are given heartworm preventative.
Adopted Bostons come with all medical records, a harness, treats, and their favorite toy. Sweaters/T-shirts ($5-7) and crates ($20) are also available upon request as supplies last.
MABTR offers a two-week trial period with each adoption to ensure your new dog is a good fit. MABTR will hold your check and wait to register the dog’s microchip until the end of that period. If the dog is not a good fit, we’ll gladly take him or her back into our care and try to match you with a different dog if you so desire.

Izzy: As I sat on the floor of the foster home feeding treats to a terrified ‘Izzy,’ I just knew she was my girl. To my relief, a light bulb went on in her head when we adopted her, and she realized, “Wow! This is home and they love me!” It took no time at all for us to both prove each other right. Izzy may have failed as a breeding dog but she is the best farmhand I know. She patrols on the four-wheeler when she’s not doing the ‘BT 500’ around the house. Instead of hiding from me, she ‘muddies’ me with affection after a good roll in the livestock tank – definitely my girl!” -Judy V.
