Boston Terrier Rescue Donations
The veterinary expenses for Boston Terrier Rescue of North Carolina total tens of thousands of dollars annually. The average cost of veterinary care for a foster dog far exceeds the adoption fee. Therefore, while your adoption fee is critical to the rescue, the fee usually does not even cover the cost of vet care for one foster dog. The additional funds required to provide care for our dogs come mostly from supporter generosity and fundraisers held for Boston Terrier Rescue of North Carolina.
As you know, all of Boston Terrier Rescue of North Carolina’s foster dogs are spayed or neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated before adoption.
