Having just celebrated National Dog Day, it seems like an appropriate time to share some important information about our rescue.

QUESTION: WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO RUN A RESCUE LIKE BOSTON TERRIER RESCUE OF FLORIDA?

SHORT ANSWER: It takes many, many dedicated volunteers and fosters, and it takes a very generous amount of financial support from our amazing supporters and followers.

LONG ANSWER: Boston Terrier Rescue of Florida is committed to saving Boston Terriers who are lost, abandoned or surrendered in Florida and the Southeast United States, regardless of age, health or adoptability. As a result of this mission, many of the Boston Terriers we take in have expensive vet bills and some will never be adopted due to medical and/or behavioral issues. For these permanent foster dogs, we provide a safe, stable, controlled environment for them to live out the remainder of their lives in comfort, and with stability and dignity. We also offer hospice to the terminally ill, always with comfort & quality of life as our compass.

To accomplish our mission, we have an ever growing need for more foster homes to house our foster dogs. This is a result of our willingness to bring into rescue some less adoptable or unadoptable dogs. Less adoptable dogs typically remain in a foster home for a much longer period of time while we search for that special adopter for them. The permanent foster dogs will remain in their foster home until they are at the Rainbow Bridge.

Additionally, as we expand, we need an increasing number of volunteers to help with a plethora of duties such as processing adoption and foster applications (phone interviews, home visits and managing the execution of this process), creating and managing adoption postings, coordinating and participating in events, creating and managing fundraisers, managing our internet and social media sites, assisting in transportation, and performing clerical work, to mention a few.

Most importantly, we need substantial financial support in the form of donations and fundraising to help all of these dog. Without this, none of the above can take place.

SOME OF THE NUMBERS: Boston Terrier Rescue of Florida received $57,735 in adoption fees for 2015; however, vetting alone totaled $141,430. You can see why we are constantly fundraising--every penny counts!

SOME OF OUR STATS:
Intakes
205 in 2015
172 in 2016 (January to August 25th)

Ratio of Dogs by Age
13.3% - Baby (1 yr or less)
24.2 - Young (2 - 4 yrs of age)
25.1 - Adult (5 - 8 yrs of age)
37.4 - Seniors (9 yrs or older)

(62.5% of our foster dogs are 5 years old or older. However, the vast majority of our applicants request to adopt a dog 4 years old or younger)

Current Dogs in the Rescue – 92, of which 30 are permanent foster dogs, 6 are in the S4S program, and 19 are not adoptable at this time due to medical and/or behavioral issues.

CONCLUSION: Our mission to save Boston Terriers who are lost, abandoned or surrendered, regardless of age, health or adoptability, cannot be realized without the incredible dedication of our volunteers and fosters, and without the very generous financial support of our awesome supporters and followers. We are nothing without you all!

If you feel it in your heart to support us further, donations can be made online by visiting our website (btrfl.org/donate), via PayPal.com to donations@bostonrescueflorida.org or by check sent to 4300 W Lake Mary Blvd, #1010-358, Lake Mary, FL 32746.

You can do as much or as little as you want. Every little bit helps. As an example, 10 volunteers doing 1 phone interview a week is much better for everyone than having 1 volunteer do 10 phone interviews a week.
