Help a Senior
Northeast Boston Terrier Rescue
Help Chica and Molly
Senior Molly came into foster care when her elderly owner died. Jodi Groff has had her for over two years. She had a large mammary tumor, had to have all her teeth removed, deaf and we have been battling glaucoma. Two weeks ago she went blind even after all we’ve tried.
Beautiful Senior Chica didn’t have a lot of love in her past life, so now she is making up for lost time with Foster Mom Jodi Groff. She is a Boston Terrier/Rat Terrier mix who found herself in a shelter, but that’s when her luck changed. She was obviously abused in her history and will crouch and hide and is extremely shy but has been coming out of her shell.
We had to take little Chica to the vet this week. She has been showing even more severe signs of heart failure. She was such a good girl and lay quietly on our jacket we set up on the floor while she patiently waited her turn. She had an x-ray and her heart is extremely enlarged. We are going to try some medication but what we would really like is to send her to a cardiologist so we can figure out how to make her more comfortable and not have her struggle to breathe. We need your support to help her. Even if you can give a small gift please consider helping through our Chip In because Chica is our featured girl. She finally has a life full of love and now her body can’t let her enjoy it. Please donate if her story touches your heart.

We now have a virtual foster program! The program is for people that cannot fit another furry friend into their home or for one reason or another cannot physically foster but want to help and support our rescues. It gives our many supporters the opportunity to virtually foster a dog of their choice. There are two ways to sponsor virtually, a one-time donation (Guardian) or a monthly on-going donation (Angel).
NEBTR is starting the program with 6 dogs (for now) that are either forever fosters or terminal medical conditions. If the program is successful, the intention is to add more dogs. The 6 dogs are:
(1) Dobby with Maria Pastuszak (deaf/blood disease)
(2) Pangya with Evette (kidney)
(3) Dodger with Gary Thomas (deaf)
(4) Chica/Molly with Jodi (seniors)
(6) Fena with Vicki Rowe (senior)
Each dog has a Facebook page and the sponsors will have access to the page for updates as a way to communicate with the sponsor family. But you can read all about it on the site – take a look – click on this link, and if you know anyone who would be interested in Virtually Fostering one of our dogs, please lead them to the site as well.

A Plea for Foster Homes
Please consider fostering! We have a line of Bostons waiting to get in our group, but we need foster homes to be able to help them!
They All Need Love
Painting by Walter Williams
Walter Williams Paintings
NEBTR member Walter Williams was instrumental last summer in initiating our Senior Trust, which provides medical support for our wonderful Seniors. We all have a special place in our hearts for those Senior Bostons, who, through no fault of their own, find themselves without a home and in need of expensive medical care.
But starting this program, which has already helped numerous Seniors, Walter also is donating his talent and creating digital portraits of beloved pets. Walter will paint your loved boston for FREE (with the hope you might give a donation to the senior trust fund.) He sits in photoshop and a win 8 painting program and hand paints your Boston looking at your favorite photograph, so give him your best one! It takes hours to complete but then you have a nice painting suitable to frame, once he sends you the 240 pixels per inch image in the email.
If you are interested, send Walter Williams a friend request on Facebook and contact him there. Since only 72 px/in. is possible on Facebook, remember to ask him to send you the 240 pixels per inch rendering.
NEBTR thanks Walter profusely for the extraordinary efforts he continually makes to raise funds for our rescued Bostons, in particular the Senior Trust Fund that was created due to his relentless energy on their behalf. The paintings you donate and the donations we receive for them are just another example of your generosity.
We are grateful for your support, your time, your imagination and talent, but mostly for your shared love of this beautiful breed.
Thank you for all your do on their behalf. If you would like to make a donation for a painting you have received, click on the donate button below to make a paypal or credit card contribution.
