Our Adoption Process:Due to the amount of time, money and TLC invested in our animals we do have some requirements for adopting. Our adoption policies and procedures have developed from years of experience in many different rescues. Some of our guidelines are outlined below:
-You must be 21 yrs of age to adopt and be living on your own.
-No out of area adoptions will be processed without the written consent of your local boxer rescue and a B.A.R.C. Board of Directors approval.
-B.A.R.C. considers it of utmost importance that all potential B.A.R.C. adopters have their current pets spayed/neutered and up to date on vaccines. All dogs, without exception, are sterilized upon leaving our program. We cannot place dogs in homes where active breeding is taking place.
-We do not believe that Boxers should live as outdoor pets or be left outside unattended when their owners are unable to supervise them.
Once you have indicated that you would like to move forward with an adoption and have completed our adoption application, we check all references on your application. If any areas are incomplete, we will contact you for that info but it does slow the process down.
A volunteer will contact you to let you know the pending status of your application via email and/or telephone and, if applicable, will arrange a time that is convenient for you to visit you home and speak with you more about our program.
If all goes well, we work with you to try to find the dog that is the right match for you and/or your family. You may decide to speak with any foster family or go visit any dog in the B.A.R.C. program at this point; however, final placement lies with the foster home and yourself/family to ensure that a proper match is made.
Adoption Contract/Fees: At the time of adoption, you will be required to sign a legally binding contract that ensures you will care for the animal or, in the unfortunate event that you cannot, you will return the dog to B.A.R.C. Adoption fees are to be paid at the time that the contract is signed. Purebred Boxers eight weeks to six years $275
Purebred Boxers age six and up $200
Boxer Mixes $175
As a non-profit charity organization, we rely solely on adoption fees and donations to recoup the significant amount of money spent on dogs in our program. Our number one expense is veterinary services as most of the dogs coming in to our program need heartworm treatment, fecal exams, deworming, vaccines, spay/neuter surgeries, medicines, etc. Without charging an adoption fee, we would not be able to function. B.A.R.C. will provide a breakdown of expenses on any given program dog at the request of a potential adopter.
Post Adoption Program: After adoption, we hope that your relationship with us will continue. We provide an extensive post-adoption program to those who need training help, have questions, or just want to meet more Boxer lovers. B.A.R.C. adopters recognize that they will always have a support system in their questions as a Boxer owner and a network to interact and meet other Boxer lovers.
Thank you for your interest in our rescued Boxers!
