FLASH BACK TO THE BEGINNING! I suspect many of you do not know our history, so I thought it would both fun and interesting to tell you a bit about our beginnings. Our Founder is Carolyn Sanislo, and I have attached a news article that was done in 2006 about her and our Rescue from that time. Carolyn started this rescue in 1992, after working with another Breed Specific Rescue to gain her initial rescue experience. We were ultimately incorporated in 2001 as a non-profit organization under Carolyn's direction. At the end of 2014, Carolyn thought it was time to retire, which brought us to our current day change in management. After several conversations, a new Board was elected on January 17th, 2015, bringing us partially up to date.

BUT, CAROLYN DID NOT RETIRE! Oh, yes, she tried, but with over 20 years of experience we simply refused to let her go! She continues to be a friend and mentor to all of us, and currently Coordinates most of South Florida for the Rescue. She is a major player on our Medical Team and works with the vets she has known all of these years and helps find new vets in other areas of the State as the need arises. She maintains our medical supplies to help us save the cost of vet prescriptions, and does most of our legal filings required to maintain our 501c3 status.

Carolyn and I talked about a few other notable, long term volunteers. She said, "...Vicki Greene is one of them", having served as past President, fostering and transporting. Vicki remains a member of this Rescue Family to this day. Another notable is Trish Maier, who remains with us after many years of fostering dogs with the most serious medical needs, not to mention hospice dogs. Trish remains Carolyn's "side-kick" as they continue to travel the State saving our precious Boston Terriers

Many things have changed over the past 22 years, but true dedication will never change. I am personally so very grateful for the wonderful women who came before and saved the lives of thousands of Boston Terriers over the years! We would not be where we are today without their giving hearts, perseverance, and dedication. .A history lesson we can all learn from..........

Moral of the story: SENIORS ROCK!! 🐾❤️🐾

Pupdate from the adopter of 11 year old Belle Button (now Belle Ann):

We adopted her last Saturday and she has settled nicely into our home and family. She is a sweet girl who is curious and energetic. In the one pic she is hanging out with her sisters Morgan and BTRFL alum Daisy Marie, who we adopted last October. She ❤️'s her furever home and we ❤️ her.
