Midwest Boston Terrier Rescue

The Midwest Boston Terrier Rescue serves the states of Michigan, Ohio, Illinois, and Indiana. They rescue Boston Terriers that are surrendered or abandoned for any reason, regardless of medical or behavioral issues. The rescue averages over 10 Boston Terrier rescues a week!

They continuously work to educate others on pet overpopulation, the importance of spaying and neutering, and quality dog care. 

Cost Of Adoption

There is a $20 adoption processing fee and placement fee (see below). The placement fee covers the cost of veterinary care, though they still largely depend on donations to cover the cost of fostering their rescues.

Applications are kept on file for six months and will need to be refiled after this time.
