Become a Foster:

We are always in need of foster homes. If you are interested in becoming a foster please contact us. We will first get you a foster application to fill out so that we can begin the process of getting you qualified to foster. As a foster please understand our dogs will need routine and training. Many dogs come to us without any training at all including potty training. We need people that are willing to show our dogs the ropes in a kind and loving way. We are in especially great need of fosters willing to take senior dogs. Many of our seniors need extra loving care and spend a long time in foster care before finding there forever home. So if you are willing to open you home and heart to a senior dog please note that when contacting us.


Our dogs come from all over Oklahoma and sometimes surrounding states. We are always in need of people willing to help transport our dogs at least part of the way to there final destination. This can sometimes be done on weekends but often needs someone that is available during the day on weekdays. If you have some time to spare and would enjoy having a furry copilot now and then let us know.

Home Visits:

Home visits are something we must do before all our dogs can go to there forever homes. We need people that are a good judge of character, familiar with the short nosed breeds, punctual, and social. You will need to check out all aspect of the potential adopters home, get to know the adopters personality, and then report back to us what you have learned. This will help us match them with the right dog for them.

Adoption Events:

Now this is a fun volunteer opportunity. Most of our event are currently in Tulsa and the surrounding areas, but we are working to have more events in the Oklahoma City area. If you have any contact with event coordinators we especially are looking for you, because we would love to continue to add events to our schedule. We are also looking for fun outgoing people who will bring traffic to our booth during an event. We will give you a short run down of all the dogs we have at the event to help you answer any questions and concerns people may have about each dog. It also would be a good idea to read through each of our dogs bios under the adoptable dogs tab in the main menu before coming to an event. We also expect you to have taken the time to read through our website and know and understand our rescue's mission and goals. Most people will either be asking about a particular dog or about who we are and what we do. So getting to know us in essential for this volunteer position.

If you think you are right for any of these volunteer positions please feel free to email us at: or message the page.

(Please also understand all volunteer positions are just that, unpaid volunteer opportunities. None of our organizations members get paid for what they do for our rescue. This includes our President, Secretary, Adoption Coordinator and Communications Director, all of them volunteer there time to our organization for free. The only exception is if we have the funding we will often reimburse you for gas if you are transporting one of our dogs.)


501(c)(3) Status

As of October 1, 2015 we are officially a 501(c)(3) non-profit. We are listed as the BT Rescue of Oklahoma Foundation. All donations are now tax deductible. This will also make it much easier for us to pull dogs from local shelters. We would like to thank everyone for their support, and everyone who helped make this possible!


The love of the breed led to adoption, but the love of the dog led to starting a rescue. Sweet Madison was only 9 years old when she lost her battle with bladder cancer. It is because of her that Boston Terrier Rescue of Oklahoma was established just one year later. Madison will be remembered for many, many years to come through the work we do for other Bostons. We might not have been able to save her life, but we will do our best to save as many others as we can!

We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization comprised of a team of diligent volunteers. The Boston Terrier Rescue of Oklahoma is dedicated to rescuing as many Boston Terriers as we can. No rescue is too small or too large and while we primarily serve Oklahoma, we have been known to aid in neighboring states as well when we're able. Our goal is to bring these sweet babies into rescue long enough to ensure that they are healthy and have been behavior tested so that we may place them into a loving, FURever home they fit right into!

We are a foster-based rescue and as such, we do not have a central facility where all of the dogs can be visited such as city shelters. All of our dogs are fostered in homes which also allows the opportunity to test more behaviors than a shelter setting might, such as house-training, interaction with other animals, and other behaviors that a dog might exhibit in a home. While we strive to provide as much information as we can about all of our dogs, sometimes we are limited on how much we know about the background of dogs that come into our care.

We're always here for any questions you may have throughout the adoption process, and even after adoption and once you have your new baby home. We love to see our dogs flourish and make their paw prints on each of your hearts!
