Thank you for visiting our Strut Your Mutt Team page for the Arizona Boston Terrier Rescue. We’re raising money to help end the killing of pets in America’s shelters. And we plan on having a lot of fun doing it! Wont you join us?!
Every day, nearly 2,200 dogs and cats are killed in America's shelters simply because they don't have safe places to call home. That number should be zero. That’s why our team is participating in Best Friends Animal Society’s Strut Your Mutt event to raise money for animals, Boston Terriers in particular.
Please help support your community by joining our team or making a donation to the teams page, Arizona Boston Terrier Rescue. If you want to walk alone or start your own team dont forget to walk in support of AZBTR. Your gift helps homeless Boston Terriers an will support the animal welfare group.

Arizona Boston Terrier Rescue, Inc. (AZBTR) is an Arizona 501c3 non-profit corporation dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and re-homing of unwanted Boston Terriers, education of owners on responsible dog ownership, and education of the public on the Boston Terrier breed.
AZBTR began life as the Rescue Committee of the Valley of the Sun Boston Terrier Club, a club founded in 1974 by a group of Boston Terrier lovers and breeders. As responsible breeders they knew that, in addition to improving and protecting the breed, it was also their obligation to help individual Bostons that needed new homes. Arizona Boston Terrier Rescue, Inc. was born as a free-standing non-profit corporation in 2006.
AZBTR takes in adoptable Boston Terriers from many situations. We provide for their medical and behavioral needs before we place them in loving, permanent homes.
AZBTR Rescue's operations are carried out statewide by volunteers, most of whom have families and full-time jobs.
We do not have a shelter to visit as all our rescues are fostered in family homes. The costs of the care we provide for Bostons adds up. We charge an adoption fee for each Boston, but it rarely covers all of the costs, even for a simple case. We close the gap with fundraising activities such as this great event and donations from Boston Terrier lovers throughout the year.
Your donation is tax deductible and each participating animal welfare organization keeps 100 percent of the money raised after transaction fees. And the best part? That money will help save the lives of homeless pets. If you are unable to donate please consider helping out in a different way like becoming a foster or a volunteer for your local animal rescue group.
Together, we can Save Them All!!!
Thank you for your support!
