Mission Statement

All breeds have their own particular needs and rescued pets have special requirements as well, very often in want of medical care, often lacking nourishment and kindness, and often expensive to rehabilitate. Because we have had Boston Terriers of our own for several years, we are familiar with their habits, peculiarities and their special needs.

We operate from the Maryville/Alcoa/ Knoxville areas of East Tennessee under the auspices of the National Boston Terrier Rescue mission but cover the state of Tennessee, Eastern Kentucky, Southwestern Virginia and Western North Carolina with the help of our Representatives and Foster Homes. We share information and resources throughout all of the Southeast and Midwest USA with affiliated Boston Rescue shelters and independent shelters, rescues and friends.

We will not refuse any dog for rescue, regardless of age, background or medical condition.
