New Foster Frankie

Frankie is a puppy mill boy who was just rescued after living his whole life at the mill.  He has three rotten teeth, issues with his eyes and is in serious need of TLC for the first time in his life.

Fortunately, he now has foster mom Brenda Seymour Frank, who says that he is a sweetheart.  Thanks so much, Brenda, for opening up your heart and home to Frankie!

Flo Can See

Flo is loving her newfound vision!! Thanks to everyone who made it possible, especially her foster mom Jerrilyn Walter and all our friends who donated to her! Look at her go!

New Foster Rocky

I brought home darling 10 month old Rocky yesterday! Rocky came from a shelter in Altoona thanks to Jerrilyn's coordinating and Megan Sanchez pulling him and meeting me. He was so good on the car ride home! Didn't have to crate him he just sat quietly in the back seat. He is very cute, mostly white body. He has some rough, pinker patches of skin you can see through his white fur. Hoping this will clear up with good food and Omega3. He has walked nicely on leash but seemed nervous about things like a passing car and a fire hydrant! He is also scared of steps.

 Rocky just wants to play! Rocky is super sweet and kissy and I'm sure he will find a home quick!

Merry Christmas from Mazy

Mazy in the arms of her forever Dad.  Isn't this beautiful?  Her first Christmas at her forever home!

And thanks to Kim and Evette Heinle for the Christmases they shared with her until her forever home arrived!

Merry Christmas from NEBTR

      T'was the night before Christmas... When all through the house, not a Boston was stirring, he just slept on mom's blouse. The stocking was hung by the Boston with care, in hopes that St. Nicholas had milkbones to share.
      The Boston was nestled all snug in his bed, while visions of pig ears danced in his head. And mamma in her kerchief and a Boston on my lap, had just settled down for a long winter's nap. When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter, the Boston ran barking and caused ears to shatter. Away to the window the Boston did dash, he was jumping and barking - his teeth even gnashed.
      The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow gave the lustre of mid-day to tennis balls below. When what to our wondering eyes should appear, but a little green sleigh and what appeared to be deer. With a fat little man all dressed up in red, when the Boston spied him he ran under the bed.
      The Beebop Boston crazies had nothing on this guy, as they flew o'er the house and landed nearby. He hollered and shouted and yelled out their names, Now Dasher, now Dancer, now Prancer, and Vixen, on Comet, on Cupid, on Donder, and Blitzen! To the top of the eave and over the wall, and he landed quite neatly, avoiding a ball.
      And then in a twinkling we heard on the roof, the prancing and pawing, and the Boston said WOOF! I drew in my hand, and wiped my forehead, the Boston still barking peeked out from the bed. Santa had come down the chimney with a bound, the Boston got quiet, he didn't make a sound.
      Santa's eyes started twinkling and he grinned ear to ear, then I heard his gruff voice as he whispered quite clear "and what do you want my sweet little boy, a greenie, a tennis ball, a nice squeaky toy?" He reached down and patted the Boston on his head, then turned to the mantle and nodded his head. "I know what you want" he whispered again, "I'll set it right here, my cute little friend."
      The Boston was wiggling his butt in delight, and as Santa bent over you could've heard a flea bite. Then suddenly kisses were rained on his face, which Santa was quick to accept and embrace. Then setting the Boston back onto the ground, he turned to me, winked, and then turned back around. He patted the Boston once more on the head, then back up the chimney he quickly sped. Again hearing clatter and prancing of hoof, we ran to the window and looked up at the roof. As we watched this old elf and his deer take flight, we heard him exclaim just as clear as daylight...



    Don't forget to set out the milkbones!

"Daisy and Austin relaxing after their first class at obedience school. They are doing great, I'm soooo proud of them!"

And check out their Christmas card.  These pups certainly won the powerball lottery!

New Foster Lucy

Yesterday Lucy arrived thanks to Tom who brought her into the city for us and Jerrilyn who helped arrange her trip.

We are already in love with Lucy. Two and a half years old, she is super friendly and extremely energetic so we will be looking to find her a home that will embrace her lovable and highly rambunctious energy. We are so excited to have her with us for the holidays!

Merry Christmas from the Hanly Family

This beautiful picture is from Jenn Hanly's family.  Sadly, foster Otto passed to the Rainbow Bridge shortly after this photo was taken. Thank you so much for being there for him in his greatest need, and he left knowing he was loved.

Walmart's Fundraiser a Success

A very special thank you to Cynthia and Craig  Musselman who do this and other events each year.   Cynthia takes a vacation day from her job to spend cooking and jarring the delicious wine jellies she makes.  Each jar is topped with a dog themed fabric which is attached by gold elastic and labelled with an NEBTR logo. Her table is as professionally dressed as you will find in any high end store and they both set it up at these events and sell them on behalf our of Bostons at only $6 a jar.  It is a lot of work and a lot of sales to reach that total.

Another successful labor of love.  Thank you from all of us.

Sheryl Trent, President

Cynthia writes,  "I want to thank Terri Anderson, Jess Casey, Robyn Seely, and Lisa Vaughan. for helping us to raise $720.00 on Saturday at Walmart in Quakertown.

Donations totalled $660.00 and Lisa picked up 10 jars of jelly to fill orders for her coworkers.

This brought the total to $720.00.

Thank you ladies, the money could not have been raised without your help."

Tammy Trivelpiece's Gifts

Special thanks to Tammy Trivelpiece, fabulous foster mom, for her gift this holiday season in memory of two of her fosters, Pugsley and Mami.  These two souls entered into her home for foster care, and remained loved there for the rest of their lives, knowing nothing but the best of everything.

Now, this Christmas time, a new Boston, Maeby, has entered Tammy's heart and she will have that same care for the rest of her life.  What a beauty she is!  We believe that Mami and Pugsley have sent her this gift in return for all she did for them.

Tammy writes, 

"My Family and I would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas, Happy Holiday, and a great New Year.

We have personally suffered many passings of dear fur kids and friends this year, but we still believe that life does go on and there are so many more needing our help. We try our best to be part of the "BIGGER" picture and could not do it without the support and guidance YOU all have shared!

Thanks to all of you for your part in helping all furkids the way to a safe and warm forever home!!!

Thanks to Sheryl for Believing in me many years ago when I desperately was looking for help for an Old Gal in our kill shelter. We brought Sassy home and gave her the love she needed until her forever home was found. That was our first Boston Foster.

Many years and more fosters later, we are very proud of the work we have done with NEBTR and hope that the coming year will prove the same.

So, Have a great Holiday everyone! kiss your furkids, tell them that you love them, and Thank them for all the help they have given you.
Because deep down, they help us as much as we help them.

Hugs to all."
