Surrendering Your Boston

Surrendering your dog is never an easy decision. If you have exhausted all options to keep your Boston Terrier, please consider surrendering them to Boston Terrier Rescue of Florida Inc. Our rescue will not place your pet in a shelter environment, but rather in a loving foster home best suited to his or her needs. Our fosters will provide food, love, and vet care for your pet as if they were their own until a forever home is found.

If you are thinking of listing your pet on Craigslist, please reconsider. There are many people who look for dogs on Craigslist (particularly those being given away for free) to abuse them, sell to research labs, flip and sell for a profit or use them for dog fights. Craigslist listings place your pet’s safety at risk. On the contrary, our rescue thoroughly interviews, check references and perform home visits on all of our prospective fosters and adopters to ensure our dogs are placed in the safest home possible.

If you have decided to surrender your pet to our rescue, please fill out the following form. Please provide us with all of your pet’s records at the time of surrender. Donations of your pet’s crate, bedding, toys, and food are always helpful and will make the transition into a new home easier for your pet. Monetary donations are not required but always appreciated as well.
