We are so excited to have you here. Whether you came to see about adopting a forever friend, making a donation, seeing how you can volunteer your time to help or you want some adorable boston swag, you came to the right place!
Since we are a 501c3 rescue, all donations made to STBTR are tax deductible.
Our donors are vital to STBTR. Some people just don’t have the ability to foster, a reliable vehicle to help with transport, or simply don’t have the time to help any other way than financially. We frequently have fundraisers when we have particularly heavy vetting needs.
We maintain a wish list on Amazon of supplies that we frequently use, and are sometimes pleasantly surprised with boxes that are delivered from Amazon.
Are an Amazon shopper? Who isn’t these days, right? Please consider switching your account to AmazonSmile and designate South Texas Boston Terrier Rescue as your beneficiary! For most purchases on AmazonSmile, STBTR will receive a small percentage from your purchase, and it costs you nothing extra!

Where are my English Bulldog peeps? STBTR has two beautiful dogs that will be ready in about two weeks.
Darla is a 7 year old, 48 lb beauty who was an owner surrender. She has a hernia and a cherry eye that we will be fixing before she is available.
King is a 5-6 year old, also 48 lbs of handsome, who came from a local shelter. His owner opted not to reclaim him and we really don’t know why. He is scheduled for neuter this week.
Both of these babies are dog and kid friendly. Apps can be found at STBTR.org. Please feel free to share! ... See MoreSee Less
Are they a pair or from different places?

Update on our sweet puppy, Flash.
It was not the news we wanted to hear this morning. The vet said the infection was too great and is eating the flesh on this poor baby's face. He is giving him so many medications/ antibiotics and it hasn't been able to combat the deeply imbedded infection. It is his strong recommendation that we let sweet little Flash go run over the Rainbow Bridge. His angel, Shannon, will be with him and love on him during his final journey. We want to thank every single one of you who donated and offered prayers for him. We spared no expense trying to fight for him. It is very frustrating to see this kind of neglect but we are sound in our decision to let him go.
Run sweet Flash, run and play with all your friends over that Rainbow Bridge. 🌈 ... See MoreSee Less

Absolutely heartbreaking…. Baby Flash, I’m so sorry this happened to you 😪😪😪😪😪. Rest in peace.
Go run pup! No more pain…only happiness!
Thank you, STBTR for trying everything you could to save him. ❤️
This news is heartbreaking. Sweet little baby
Thank you for the update! I am heartbroken for him..
This is beyond heart breaking. Rest in peace sweet little angel puppy.
I’m sure Mia greeted him as he made his way across the Rainbow Bridge
I know my two pups will be waiting to welcome him.
My heart is breaking 💔 I cannot wait to see him in all of his perfect glory someday! Thanks to all who loved him...God , please continue to bless and prosper our Rescue as we do your work on Earth.
So sorry for your loss.
This absolutely breaks my heart. Such a young baby to have had to suffer so much pain. So glad he won’t be alone in his final hours. Thank you for all you do.
Breaks my heart to see this. God bless him. Innocent little one. God bless you all for what you do
So sorry. 💔 Thank you for all you do in caring for and trying to save these pups.
This hurts to the very core of my being 💔😭
Sorry to hear this. I was really hoping to hear good news. Flash will be in a better place without any pain.
You gave him love, care, and his final days were in peace. That's love.
Run Sweet puppy angel! Play forever. 💔
So sad and VERY frustrating!! Thank you all for what you do!!
My baby Chloe will be waiting for him to run around and play with him 🙏♥️
Ugh. Heart broken. Poor baby.
So sad. Bless his heart. Run Free little guy! Run!
Hugs and prayers 🙏 ❤
I will send my sweet Lucy a heads up to look out for him on the other side.
So very sad…..
Meet King! He’s just another Boston wannabe but don’t tell him he’s different. He’s got the softest prettiest coat I’ve ever seen on an English Bulldog. He’s sweet, loves people and other animals and weighs in at about 48 lbs. He has some vetting to complete and he will be interviewing for his forever home. King is Heartworm positive but that’s not a dealbreaker in our books! And it’s certainly not his fault!
A special thanks to Russ Miller for springing him out today and driving him to us. And thanks to Austin Bulldog Rescue for alerting us to this need. We love our working relationships with sister rescues and shelters - uniting for a common goal.

Run over the Rainbow Bridge little Flash. Your little life mattered to us.
UPDATE: The pup is doing as well as can be expected. He’s eating, drinking and resting. He is still under the care of a vet at this point. The consensus is that one eye is badly ulcerated and the other is damaged beyond repair. We are moving toward resolution of that once he’s deemed stable enough to proceed. Both sides of his mouth are torn and need to be stitched. We have asked the vet to do whatever is necessary for him and that’s what we are committed to do.
We did find out that this injury occurred on FRIDAY! Yep it was Monday evening before they reached out for help, with no vet care at all. And I think Shannon is definitely his Angel. She is from a sister rescue, saw the need and jumped in with both feet to get him to safety.
Those days are behind him now. A new pic is provided here as well.
We were contacted tonight by one of our volunteers, this 4 month old boy was attacked by another dog. The owner surrendered him to us to ensure that he gets proper vetting. Our volunteer has taken him in to see the vet and we will update his status when we get news. If you would like to donate for his care you can do so through our PayPal account.

Poor little guy 😞 I donated,! I hope he gets the help he needs.
Praying he recovers quickly, poor sweet baby! I would love to have the chance to adopt him once he is at that point. I have two bostons now that would love another friend
Are they investigating this. How could they let this pup lay from Friday until Monday night? I think this could possibly be an animal abuse case, if they treat a helpless animal this way I hope they don't have human children in their care.
Thank you for any updates and for the excellent care you are providing him. I hope there are plenty of funds coming in to help this little angel. Saying prayers for this little nugget.
So sorry this poor angel didn't make it. Thank you for trying to save him.. The owners who let this happen and let him suffer for days deserve an equally horrible fate. people like that should never own animals. RIP sweet baby.
Oh how terrible. Bless his heart. Thank the Lord he’s in the best hands possible. Donated
Donated. He's in the best hands. 💜
I'm glad he's in the Lord's hands now. This world did not deserve such an angel. This has me crying made me sick to my stomach where I threw up. I just don't want to be a part of this world if this is what a majority of the human race allows and does. But bless the ones that tried to save this little soul with time, donations, anything to help him. God bless you all. My brother will be loving on him beyond the clouds with our Lord now and running free. ♥️🙏🌈
I’m sorry, but this just makes me angry! Who would not watch a little baby like that and keep an eye on it? I hope the sweet thing does not lose his eyesight. Please keep us updated on it. 💔￼
I’m so sad for this little man. 😔
Poor sweet baby. Prayers for complete healing.
Shannon, you are beyond a hero! He's alive because of you! Thanks!
Oh little Flash luv, find all my pups, especially Riley and Scully. I believe they can help you get acquainted. Sometimes it is just best to be helped across the bridge no matter how young you are. May your new friends show you all the cool hangouts! ❤️🐾🙏🦴❤️
Just terrible. Thank god he is in good hands!
Omg 😭 Sending prayers 🙏🙏🙏 My heart hurts for him 💔 Pull through little guy 🙏🙏🙏🙏
Donated and unceasing prayers for this angel baby❤🙏
Donated! Please update us when you are able! Glad he is in good hands!
Prayers and love for this precious baby.
Speechless that people can be so cruel. Praying for this little pup.
