Get ready to bid on exciting gifts and services, all donated by NEBTR members. All proceeds go to NEBTR to help Boston Terrier rescues and fosters. You have seen the work we do, you have read about all the happy tails we have achieved. Now, you can help us continue our work, by bidding on the items listed on our auction page, the NEBTR Silent Auction. There are over 80 items!!
As some of you may know, for the first time since our inception, NEBTR is faced with a tremendous financial situation that could ultimately result in us refusing to take in dogs. We have had a large number of dogs surrendered so far this year. In August, we surpassed our entire 2010 foster dogs intake. Our vet expenses are over the top and our funds are low. We’ve spent $20k in two months! We don’t want to say “no” to any dog we know we would otherwise be able to take, rehab and find a new forever home. It tears us up to think that is the position we find ourselves in. By participating in this auction, you can help us keep up our mission!
Bidding Ends: Thusday, November 10 at the time listed for each item individually. Check out the bid listing for each individual item.
Location: ONLINE ONLY!

Riley came to me because after 8 years his family was surrendering because of children.
The poor boy spent the last 2 years of his life in a crate and sucking on a football....
but now he is living large with Andrea ....
-- Carolyn McCarthy
Hope all is well with you and all your fosters! I just wanted you to know that I just love, love, love Riley! We have bonded so well. He actually gave up the football. He stopped sucking on them and then started destroying them like most Bostons do! I got him a kong and a rope and some other toys that he loves and chews on. He no longer needs his pacifier.
Everyone that meets him loves him. He is a great dog and I want to thank you again for bringing him to me. I attached some new photos.

I just wanted to pass this along. For October I had to send physical
Anniversary cards to people who don't have email. So today I received a
note from Lillian Horton. She adopted Macy in 10/2009, who was fostered
by Vickie Rowe. Lillian said
"Macy is the best dog and we get along very well. She goes where I go if
an animal is allowed. She sleeps with me. And eats the same time as I.
How lucky I am to have her. She is a good friend."
A very nice update.
