PLEASE NOTE: Though you may think our adoption procedures are a bit stringent, please remember that many of our Boston’s have already been separated from a home, and not always a loving one. Some have been through the frightening experience of being in a shelter, or found as strays. We try very hard to make the adoptions successful, and make the best possible decisions for the Boston. Our adoption process helps to assure us that you are ready for the commitment and responsibility of adopting a Boston into your family. Our top priority is adopting the right Boston into the right home. Adoptions are not completed unless everyone is happy... you, the Boston, and Midwest Boston Terrier Rescue members involved.
This release is not limited to the veterinarian named below. Please let your veterinarian know we will be calling for a vet reference.

If we discover that any information on this form was knowingly falsified, it will be denied. Further, if any information is knowingly falsified, and the adoption/transfer of the dog has taken place, we reserve the right to take the dog back into our possession.
If/when your application in approved you will be contacted by a representative of Midwest Boston Terrier Rescue. This adoption fee is charged to help defray the costs of veterinary care for our rescued dogs. At the time of adoption, you will be required to sign an adoption contract committing to the care of the dog. A mandatory part of that care is monthly heartworm preventative (or a yearly heart worm shot). Please remember that Boston Terriers are high-energy, people oriented dogs that require a great deal of exercise and human companionship. And cannot tolerate extremes in temperature and should be kept inside as house dogs.
All Boston’s in our rescue receive the following care: comprehensive examination by a licensed veterinarian; fecal test; spay or neuter (unless there is a significant health risk or under 6 months of age); heartworm test and treatment; heartworm preventative; treatment of known illness, medical problems, malnourishment, etc., before they will be adopted out.
I understand that if my application is approved and a Boston matching the criteria I have provided is available in the rescue, I will be contacted for a Home Visit. After a successful Home Visit is performed, I will be contacted by Midwest Boston Terrier Rescue for an adoption.
If you end up adopting another dog during this process, or have questions, please contact Midwest Boston Terrier Rescue: MWBTR.Bostons@gmail.com
Please make sure you also submit the $20 application fee.
